Tarot numbers are fascinating, don’t you think? As a symbol, a number holds so much information. I’ve been thinking about how the numbers make such a useful and profound framework for the tarot. Once you have grasped a basic understanding of numerology, it makes reading the cards so easy.
The progression of the numbers and how they mirror the human existence ensures that you always know where you are. For example, let’s say you’re trying to make sense of the Five of Cups, all you have to do in your mind is look at the card that isn’t there, the Four of Cups. By doing this, you can almost see how the person arrived at the emotional challenge they find themselves in right now. And where they might be going. Remember that a single tarot card doesn’t exist in a vacuum, so to speak.
Anyway, I was going to write a little blog post about the tarot numbers and I sorta got carried away. The post turned into almost a 3,500 word ramble, so I thought it better to publish it on its own as an article: Tarot Numerology.
