Numbers are an intricate part of our everyday lives. We measure things when we cook and we count money. Numbers can be basic, but they can also be used intuitively as they contain a magical formula for all creation. The numbers and relationships between the cards in tarot and numerology plays out in an important way.
The numbers can be used as qualities and as quantities. I know you have 2 eyes or I know that a gallon of milk costs $3.99. These are quantities. Numerology looks at numbers as having qualities. These qualities are seen in nature over and over again. They are also in the makeup of our own bodies and even our own destinies.
Numerology can also be used for divining your aspects of yourself through your name and your birthday. Interestingly, the Pythagorean Theorem can be applied to numerology to show you your own personal path. I have associated this back to tarot for a fully comprehensive reading. It is not a predicative reading, but will show you certain patterns and qualities that come up in your life.
The theory of numbers became before arithmetic. To the Ancients, numbers had definite qualities. According to Tobias Dantzig, counting came later and this is evident in the way European language evolved. For instance, tres, thrice, trans and ter are all words that mean "many" and then evolved into the numerical representation of the number three (Dantzig, 5). Primitive cultures in Australia and some South American native tribes still do not have a method for counting. Hence, counting and arithmetic came later in civilization, albeit around 3500 B.C. Modern arithmetic has only been around approximately 400 years (Dantzig, 38). Indeed, occult, religious mysticism and even early religion reflect the qualitative effects of numbers. Dantzig asserts, "The genesis of all science can be traced to the contemplation of these occult influences. Astrology preceded astronomy, chemistry grew out of alchemy, and the theory of numbers had its precursor in a sort of numerology which to this day persists in otherwise unaccountable omens and superstitions (39). Pythagorean schools of thought gave numbers to all there Gods and even Ancient Greeks used gematria to represents each letter of their alphabet.
The Bible is wrought with numerological meanings and we can even trace Hebrew, Arabic and most Semitic languages back to this type of "number-lore". Numbers were considered sacred in themselves, which is why even the Gods all had numbers according the ancient Babylonians and the Pythagorean schools of thought.
Tarot as well follows Hebrew gematria. Each tarot key is assigned a Hebrew letter, which in turn has been assigned a number. In fact, Hebrew was never meant to be a spoken language for fear of it loosing it's sacred numerical value and becoming colloquial. Indeed, it has. Arabic followed the same suit. Though, it has been spoken for centuries, it is very seldom that you meet an person who speaks Arabic who knows of the gematria. The Arabic language has now been spewed across several continents resulting in variations of the language. Remarkably the root-based systems of Arabic still remains intact for those people who wish the hint at the ancient form of this marvelous language.
Contrary to popular tarot believe, the Ten of Cups does not actually represents the physical manifestation of a home. Water is ill-at ease in the structured world of earth, but it's trying its hardest. That's why its called satiety, we can't really go any further than this dream like world that has almost made it into physical form. It's also why the 10 of Cups is Pisces, which rules our dreams and inspirations. It's the most far we can go in our realization of the perfect home, without it being the perfect home.
