A Guide to Working with Tarot Numerology

A Guide to Working with Tarot Numerology

Tarot and numerology are two different practices, but they are similar and can be used together for greater guidance through life. You turn to tarot to improve your intuition and gain insight into who you are and what is happening in your life at any moment. You can use a tarot reading to help make important decisions or get through difficult times in your life.

Numerology provides guidance and can be helpful when making important decisions in life, but it gives more of an overview of life. A numerology reading uses the numbers associated with your name and birth date to provide a view of what is in the stars for your life. This is a different perspective on your life, which can enhance your use of tarot.

The great thing about tarot numerology is that once you learn the basics of one, you already know some of the basics of the other.

Those who take tarot seriously will typically learn something about numerology and vice versa. When you combine the two, you can understand the overall view of your life and the current events happening in your life.

The Major Arcana tarot cards are based on numbers, the driving force of numerology. This is the direct tie between the two practices. Numerology deals with numbers 1-22, which are the numbers on the Major Arcana tarot cards.

Here is a quick overview of the cards and their basic meaning. Use it as a quick reference to understand how tarot numerology is connected.

On this page, I want to introduce this subject so you clearly understand what it is and how it could benefit your life. Many people think of tarot as a means of understanding themselves and others on a deeper level, and it has historically been used for divination.
