Bringing Numerology and Tarot together.

Now it is time to take our first steps in looking at the relationship between Numerology and Tarot.

A deck of tarot cards consists of 22 cards in the major arcana and 56 in the minor arcana. The minor arcana is comprised of four suits of  ten numbered cards and four court cards each, (also referred to as the Royal arcana), rather like a pack of playing cards. The major arcana of 22 cards are all numbered and have titles.

In this post I want to show the major arcana and its relationship to the blueprint numbers we have found via numerology.

Each number between 1 and 9 is linked to two of the major arcana cards. Here is a list of the cards with their deck numbers in brackets. You will see that the cards relate through the same procedure of adding down which we have seen illustrated in the calculations for the blueprint numbers of an individual’s birthdate except for the two Key numbers 11 and 22 which are treated slightly differently once again.

Blueprint number 1 with The Magician (1) and The Wheel of Fortune (10)

Blueprint number 2 with The High Priestess (2) and Judgement (20)

Blueprint number 3 with The Empress (3) and The Hanged Man (12)

Blueprint number 4 with The Emperor (4) and Death (13)

Blueprint number 5 with The Hierophant (5) and Temperance (14)

Blueprint number 6 with The Lovers (6) and The Devil (15)

Blueprint number 7 with The Chariot (7) and The Tower (16)

Blueprint number 8 with Strength (8) and The Star (17)

Blueprint number 9 with The Hermit (9) and The Moon (18)

From the numerology blueprints we are left with Key numbers 11 and 22
From the major arcana we are left with the cards of The Fool (0) Justice (11) The Sun (19) and The World (21)
Key blueprint 11 is associated with The Fool (0) and Justice (11)
Key blueprint 22 is associated with both The Sun (19) and The World (21)
In my next post I will explore meanings of these cards and their influences on the lifepath of each blueprint number.
