If you are interested in learning tarot but feel overwhelmed by all the card meanings?Tarot by Numbersteaches you one of the easiest ways to read cards in an instant-to look at each card’s number.
A tarot is a system of divination that uses a deck of cards with symbolic images and archetypal representations to gain insight and guidance about various aspects of life, such as love, relationships, career, and spirituality. The Tarot deck typically consists of 78 cards, divided into two main sections: the Major Arcana, which consists of 22 cards representing significant life events and spiritual lessons; and the Minor Arcana, which consists of 56 cards divided into four suits (usually cups, swords, wands, and pentacles) representing more everyday experiences and situations.
To simplify this process, Tarot by Numbers is a unique approach to reading and interpreting tarot cards that focuses on the numerical symbolism present in the cards. In traditional tarot decks, each card has a specific number associated with it, usually depicted prominently in the card’s design. Tarot by Numbers interprets these numbers as a key component of the tarot reading, providing additional insights and meanings to the cards beyond the traditional symbolism. For example, in the Rider-Waite-Smith tarot deck, the Major Arcana cards are numbered from 0 to 21, and the numbers are often associated with specific concepts or energies. The Fool numbered 0, represents spontaneity and unpredictability, while The Magician, numbered 1, signifies new beginnings and creative power. The numbers in the Minor Arcana cards, which are divided into four suits (Wands, Cups, Swords, and Pentacles), are also considered significant in Tarot by Numbers. For instance, the Ace of Wands numbered 1, represents potential and inspiration, while the Ten of Swords, numbered 10, symbolises endings and transformation.
By considering the numbers alongside the traditional imagery and meanings of the cards, Tarot by Numbers readers aim to gain deeper insights into the messages conveyed by the tarot cards and provide a unique perspective for their clients.
