Through the numbers
In tarot numerology, numbers are part of the meaning of each tarot card. During readings, patterns can often be seen in the numbers on the tarot cards drawn, which can show the reader what to work on or where to go. These numbers can also help the reader understand the timing of future events.
A helpful way to do this is to look at the numbers one through ten and the roles they play in the Minor Arcana. There are four minor arcana suits: Staves, Vessels, Coins, and Swords, although they are known by different names depending on the deck.
However, in order to properly understand the different minor arcana numbers, it is important to understand the basic functions of each suit.
The suit of wands (sometimes known as wands, staves, staves, batons, or clubs) represents the element of fire. These include the fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. Fire is a bright light that guides you, keeps you warm and dry, and inspires enthusiasm. However, it can also wreak havoc, burning things down and destroying valuables. This suit is the stuff of life itself and stands for inspiration; Dedication; Drive; Ambition; primal, sexual or artistic energies; Motivation; Success; and willpower.
The vessels (also known as cups, chalices, chalices, cauldrons, or hearts) represent the element of water, including the zodiac signs of Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. Water can be life-giving, cleansing and purifying, but it can also become a tidal wave that overwhelms. This suit reveals emotions and feelings, both positive and negative, and can provide glimpses of intuition, spirituality, desire, connection, love, and romance. Vessels can give you a glimpse into your heart and the hearts of those you love.
The coin suit (also known as pentacles, discs, rings and diamonds) represents the element of earth, which includes the earth signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. This element literally provides support and gives you something solid and solid to stand on. It is the foundation on which people build their lives. But when the earth breaks apart, collapses, or trembles, it can shake, crush, and destroy with ease. The coin suit is associated with wealth, finance, work, employment, prosperity, material possessions, practicality, nature, stability, dependability, and tangible manifestations on the physical plane.
The sword suit (aka knives, spades, and blades) represents the element of air. These include the air signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. Air is needed by every living being. Although invisible, it can refresh, cool and purify. However, it can also have devastating power, as seen in tornadoes and hurricanes. The Tarot sword cards can provide insight into a person’s thoughts, logic and conflicts – and their double-edged imagery underscores the importance of balance.
The numerology of the minor arcana
With that in mind, here is a guide to the numbers one through ten in the Minor Arcana and how each card’s numerology affects its meaning and purpose in its suit and in the deck as a whole.
The number one represents new beginnings, new possibilities and the powerful potential of manifestation. In tarot, the aces (ones) embody the essence of their suit and are often considered “lucky” or “fortunate” cards. This is especially true when there are many aces appearing in a single reading. If a specific question is asked, they usually answer “Yes”.
Ace of Sticks: Inspiration, courage, vitality.
Ace of Ships: Love, divine source, intuition.
Ace of Swords: Truth, mental strength, clarity.
Ace of Coins: Prosperity, fruitful enterprise, manifestation.
The number two represents unity, harmony and balance in both tarot and numerology. The cards associated with this number can indicate choice, duality and the meeting of opposites. They can also reveal pairings, polarities, and partnerships, and help you make decisions and see if and when you can expect support on certain matters.
Two Wands: Plans, ideas are implemented, smaller decisions.
Two vessels: Union, mutual attraction, emotional attachments, agreement.
Two swords: Stalemate, indecision, stagnation.
Two coins: Balancing acts, financial planning, waiting.
The number three signifies abundance, growth, fertility and cooperation. When you see the number three in tarot and numerology, it is a meeting of ones and twos. This, in turn, can provide insights into groups, collaboration, and teamwork.
Three Wands: Positive anticipation, gratitude, good things are coming.
Three ships: Happiness, a circle of friends, joyful emotional connection.
Three of Swords: Breakup, heartbreak, disappointment, broken or painful communication.
Three Coins: The Holy Trinity, a master craftsman, successful cooperation or teamwork.
The number four represents stability, structure, sturdiness and foundation. In the Tarot, the number four often means that you have laid the foundation for your desires in a strong, stable and enduring way. The cards you get here can represent what your structure is built on.
Four Wands: Celebration, possible marriage, positive success.
Four vessels: Uncertainty about what is being offered, detachment, avoidance, apathy.
Four of Swords: Forced rest, inactivity, rest.
Four Coins: Security, attachment, restraint, egoism.
The number five signifies change, conflict, instability, shock and challenge. In tarot numerology, drawing many fives can indicate that a transformation or metamorphosis is underway, for better or for worse.
Five Wands: Fights, arguments, unwanted competition, struggle.
Five ships: Desperation, sadness, focusing on the negative – but a reminder that all is not lost.
Five of Swords: A victory that will lead to defeat, defeat, deceit and bullying.
Five Coins: Financial hardship, desperation, hope even after the fight.
In tarot and numerology, the number six represents cooperation, communication, balance, harmony and mutual aid. Drawing sixes during a reading may indicate overcoming conflict and finding solutions or provide insight.
Six Wands: Victory, a possible engagement or marriage, good news, success.
Six ships: Charitable giving, healing, filial joy.
Six of Swords: Something that has disappeared or is evolving with the possibility of returning later.
Six coins: A Good Samaritan, generosity of money and material goods, the fulfillment of a want or need.
The number seven generally represents knowledge, belief, stagnation, reflection and introspection. In both tarot and numerology, recognizing the number seven can be a sign to look inward and assess or re-evaluate whether you are on track with what you want in the long term. This number may also be reminding you that time alone can be restorative.
Seven Wands: A victory after “the good fight”, hope, defense, superiority.
Seven of the Vessels: Daydreams, confusion, overwhelm of a person, possible use of alcohol or drugs.
Seven of Swords: feeling of loss, theft or deception; an absence – but with something good that remains.
Seven Coins: A wait, patience, positive results, evidence of tangible growth, a desire for fulfillment.
The number eight represents power, mastery, strength, protection and achievement. As you draw your tarot cards, this number can indicate authority – perhaps in that you are the boss or director – and it suggests that you are experiencing growth and achievements both internally and externally.
Eight Wands: Swift movement, travel, good news come swiftly.
Eight ships: Leaving, rejection, a difficult path.
Eight of Swords: A feeling of being stuck that only exists in your head, possibly thinking too much, a feeling of being trapped.
Eight Coins: Hard work, a solution to a problem, increased knowledge.
The number nine signifies fulfillment, attainment, realization and expansion. Drawing nines may indicate that you are almost there – wherever “there” is for you. Whether it’s a goal, a plan, or a long-term project, it’s nearing completion and you’re about to achieve what you desire.
Nine Wands: The worst is over. Remain steadfast, strong and persevere.
Nine of the Vessels: Wish fulfilled, fulfilment, pleasure, contentment.
Nine of Swords: A problem that contains the answer; something that isn’t as scary as it seems; Worries, insomnia, nightmares, fears and tears – but with hope.
Nine Coins: Inheritance, Abundance, Reward, Bountiful Harvest, Peace of Mind.
The number ten signifies the completion of work, the attainment of goals, the completion of cycles, and the completion of the circle. In both numerology and tarot, spotting tens can indicate that you have completed a cycle and are ready for a new beginning. Renewal and growth may be ahead.
Ten Wands: A heavy burden, frustration, a reminder to keep pursuing your goals.
Ten Ships: A happy marriage/partnership/family, emotional security, fulfillment in love.
Ten of Swords: The worst is over, the change, hope is rising like the sun.
Ten Coins: Family, the buying or selling of property, inheritance, wealth, the happy fulfillment of the tree of life.
