If you are a Tarot enthusiast (like I am), you have probably noticed that Tarot is a lifelong study, best taken in “chunks.”
Those chunks include Astrology, Symbology, Elementology (Yes – I made up that word, but I also made up the word “Tarologist” years ago, and now it’s a “thing”) – Kabbalah, Chakra/Color-ology, Numerology…and the list keeps growing.
The Numerological portion can provide a wealth of information to even the “greenest” of Tarot Readers. And whether you are into Tarot or not, numbers are everywhere, and there is meaning and messages in numbers.
In my best-selling book, The Intuitive Tarot Workbook, I offer a “shortcut” to understanding numbers and how they relate to Tarot (and a host of other excellent Tarot tips!).
Today, I will share a beautifully simple Tarot-Tip that supports insight and accuracy in your readings using Numerology. I use this when doing readings via the Celtic Cross, but you can use it with any spread.
What to Do
After laying down all the cards (and reading them as you usually would), take a moment to add up ONLY the numerical cards. Tip: This does not include the Major Arcana – JUST the Minor Arcana, excluding the Court cards – (because they are not numbered).
After adding the numbered cards – reduce them down to a single number. Example: Let’s say you added all your numbers and got 17. Reduce that down to 8 (1 + 7=8)
This is where your knowledge of Numerology comes in. Lucky for you, I am providing “crib notes,” – but keep in mind, the actual study of Numerology offers deeper insight.
Reduced Numbers 1 through 10
1 (or Aces): New beginnings
10: (Reduced to 1; 1+0 = 1) New Beginnings
From Here – take the number and determine how it fits with the overall message of the reading, and just like that – BAM! – deeper insight!
This tip is certainly helpful to add more meaning to your readings, but if you want more meaning in Tarot, your life, or wherever numbers are involved, I offer you my class, The Magick of Numbers.
In The Magick of Numbers, we’ll explore the tradition of Numerology to discover the ways numbers speak to us.
For example, we will explore how you can access the information and power in your:
- Birth Date
- Mobile number
- House number
- License plate number
- Zip Code
- While easily learning how this insight supports your tarot readings for more depth and accuracy.
The Magick starts with Discovering your numbers. Here’s what you’ll experience:
Lesson 1: We start with a brief history of numbers and Esoteric Numerology. We’ll be introduced to the letter/number table and your Numerology Assessment Tool – a handy cheat sheet you will use throughout the course.

It reveals the talents you have acquired in your incarnations. We’ll also explore your Outer Personality Number, representing how people see you.
Lesson 4: We’ll explore your Path of Destiny Number, representing what you came here to manifest. In addition, we’ll look at the alignments of your relationships, address, phone number, license plate number, and zip code.
