Tarot Numerology Number Ten Meaning

Tarot card number 10 speaks of the end of a cycle of destiny, something that has come to its conclusion and now growth will occur from this point, or in a new direction entirely.

When a lot of ten’s appear it suggests the process where we settle up loose ends and make a conscious decision to leave the past behind and move forward.

It’s a time of reaping rewards for past efforts, but can also be a period of challenge for those who perhaps persisted on a destructive path or didn’t make necessary changes before.

In some manner, the rewards and/or consequences from before are manifesting now and the impacts are being felt.  It’s also a good time to plot your next move or consider areas where it may be best to move in a new direction from here on.

If what has been previously established has served you well, build on it from here.  If not, consider what changes may be necessary to get you back on track again.

Tarot Numerology Number 7 in Tarot

tarot numerology 7

The number 7 in Tarot is a deeply philosophical and spiritual number.  When you see the seven’s come up in abundance it speaks of the need for introspection. People who carry this number often need time alone to unwind and to contemplate things before opening up to others.

Seven often comes up around introverted people, those who are deeply thoughtful and compassionate, but tend to not wear their heart on their sleeve so to speak.  As a result, they may be mistaken for disconnected or aloof, but in reality, they simply prefer to process their emotions independently.

Sevens in abundance suggest that this quality is something that would best serve the current situation.  Rather than rely too heavily on the opinions of others or what you “think” you should do, be still and sit with the current issue.  Allow your answers to flow to you and don’t over-analyze, but allow.

This card often comes up around resistance.  You know those times that you look back on and think “I really knew better, but I did it anyway”… Sometimes we are not willing to listen to the still, small voice of Spirit.  Seven’s in abundance warn us not to do this, but to internalize and contemplate before moving ahead in haste.

Strengths of the Seven:  Intuitition, higher levels of awareness and the ability to solve problems using well-rounded thought patterns.  Introspection and considering the higher meaning and purpose of all situations.  Slow, thoughtful, deliberate actions.

Challenges of the Seven: A tendency to be too self-involved at times or oblivious to others, can appear aloof or disconnected.  Sometimes 7’s feel so misunderstood that they do disconnect from others when they might benefit from some added perspective.

The Empress Tarot Personality

Every Tarot card has personality traits associated with it.  These can be helpful when looking at other people, but also for personal reflection.  Perhaps you want to know what your greatest strengths and challenges are? The cards can give great insight into the personality and help you develop strengths and face your weaknesses.

the Empress

The Empress is the matriarch of the Tarot and symbolizes fertility and abundance.  She represents those who are nurturing and compassionate by nature, sometimes so much so that they put everyone ahead of themselves when not properly aligned.

People with this card tend to base their sense of identity and self-worth on others and on their roles and so long as they properly balance this with self-care, it’s a wonderful thing.

Empress people are also very creative and expressive and must use that ability to thrive.  Sequestering the creative energies in this personality can be detrimental to spiritual and mental health.  Empress people thrive when they are using their creativity to solve problems and to provide comfort and sustenance to others.

Pregnancy in this card is not only symbolic of fertility in the physical sense, but of the creative life force that wants to manifest.  The Empress person must have freedom to express themselves and should strive to keep a sense of personal identity separate from other people.

Empress people are most often drawn to artistic fields, teaching and the healing professions.  They tend to be empathic and compassionate and others are drawn to their loving energy.

Sometimes Empress people love a project so much that they may attract people who are broken in an attempt to fix them.  People with this card need to be very discerning in personal friendships and romantic relationships to ensure they are drawing healthy people into their circle.  The best way for this to happen is to focus on self-love and acceptance first.


Tarot Card Meanings The Devil Tarot Card

Learn and understand the Devil Tarot card.

The Devil Tarot card is one of the more complex cards in the deck and also one that tends to be misunderstood.

When it appears around the person asking the question; it tends to point to self-sabotage and our deepest, underlying fears that can work against us.

Some of the benefits of this card are self-awareness, taking accountability for our actions rather than making excuses.

The challenges of this card can be a variety of issues.  You may struggle with bad habits or addictions that require behavior modifications or better understanding.

Many people with this card struggle to form appropriate, strong boundaries with others and can fall prey to narcissists and others who tend to take advantage of the emotionally vulnerable.

Conversely, you may be someone who struggles with being manipulative towards others when you fear loss, abandonment etc.

The Devil and Relationships

When the Devil card appears in Tarot around another person; it tends to indicate someone who is likely being deceptive or only serving their own self-interests.  Devil people tend to be narcissistic, self-serving in a selfish way – they look out for themselves and will say or do whatever it takes to get their own way.

In relationships, these people tend to be very difficult to live with.  Often they are charming at first, but later on, their true colors are revealed.  The reasons many Devil people tend to be controlling, however, is that deep down they are deeply insecure.  They feel compelled to control others because they don’t want to feel vulnerable themselves or risk rejection, abandonment etc.

Dealing with a Devil card is always a challenge, however, it also provides an opportunity to see ourselves and others with more clarity.  No one is without “darkness” or “challenge”.  What we resist persists.  If you find you are plagued with bad habits that sabotage you; take a look below the surface of these problems and get to the heart of the fear or issue.

If you find you are repeatedly drawn into relationships with challenging people, explore that also.  Are you struggling with your sense of self? Do you feel the need to please others at your own expense? If so, what fears are fueling that tendency?

The Devil’s gift is reflection – and when we do this honestly we can overcome the obstacles that sabotage us.

A Guide to How to Ask Tarot Questions Effectively

how to ask tarot questions

how to ask tarot questions

Ever struggled coming up with questions to ask for a Tarot reading? Learn how to form the best questions for your readings and see some great examples.

Tarot works best when focused on a tight question within a reasonable time frame.  “Will I ever” questions are not well suited to Tarot.  Why? Well, ever is a mighty long time now, isn’t it?  Every day we make choices that impact the course of our path.  Tarot is good for seeing short-term energies and patterns and adjusting our behaviors accordingly.  “Ever” is just too vague and too many things can happen.

For this reason, keep your spreads and/or your questions to a specific time frame.  Six months to a year are ideal for longer-range readings.

You also want to avoid asking the same thing in different ways.  When a question is emotionally charged, or we are not hearing what we want to hear etc. there can be a temptation to rephrase the same question in different ways.  This is not helpful and will only cause confusion.  Do your spread or ask your question at a time where you can be calm and open to all possibilities.

Examples of Good and Bad Tarot Questions

Wrong: Will I ever get a job as a nurse at XYZ hospital?

Better: Will a position at XYZ hospital open up in the next six months? What do I need to be aware of to increase my chances of getting a nursing position at XYZ hospital?

The next involves love and relationship Tarot readings.

Wrong: How does Dan feel about me? Does he care for me at all? Will he ever love me?

Right: Please show me how Dan views me as a person and what our compatibility is.  OR

Was Dan being truthful about his feelings towards me? OR

What are Dan’s intentions towards a relationship with me?

These are all clear, concise questions that are not emotionally driven asking the same thing over and over…. These questions are far less likely to create confusion and add to any emotional turmoil.

Example Abstract Concept Questions

Wrong: When will I be happy?

Right: What can I do right now to improve my outlook and overall sense of happiness?

The top one assumes you are powerless and happiness is something that will come galloping over the horizon one day and land in your lap.  That’s not what happiness is.  Happiness is a choice ultimately, so when you are struggling to feel happy, rather than seeking it as some distant objective, focus on what you can do to empower yourself right now that will start to turn things around for you.
