“Don’t touch my cards!”
“But why? And what now, mom?”

I don’t really flip when my kids touch my cards. But, I do clean them after their little hands touched them. And most of all, I do clean and release the energy after every reading. How do I usually clean them? There are several ways I know how you can clean your cards, and there are probably a few more I will skip. Nevertheless, in this article I will share my cleansing ritual, but also how a few of my fellow readers clean their tarot cards.

In the Tarot, there isn’t any “worst” card, there are no only good or only bad cards. Every card has its own “shadow side” and obviously also its sunny position. For example, the Tower card is one of the most fearful cards and it often represents a sudden collapse, a catastrophe that tumbles down like a house of cards. However, the Tower card can also represent a sudden and unexpected change that can potentially lead to a positive turn in your life. Therefore, a description of a card often depends on how you view it, as well as the context you ascribe to the card, but most of all what are the cards that surround a specific card.

Numerologists believe that numbers are connected to specific concepts and events – even through alphabet. For example 1 is about new beginnings, 2 is about duality and balance, while 10 is about completion and transformation. Therefore, with Numerology we are trying to connect the meaning of a number to real-life events – we are trying to explain what is the importance of numbers in people’s lives – we are trying to get to the root of a number. But how are Numerology and Tarot connected? As a matter of fact, they go together just like a hand and a glove. Have you ever noticed the Roman numerals on Decks that rely on Rider Waite? Of course you have!

Let’s start with the very basics. Tarot cards are divided into Minor Arcana and Major Arcana. In Major Arcana the cards are marked with numbers from 0-21 and Minor Arcana is divided into 4 suits (Wands, Cups, Swords and Pentacles) and each of these suits has 14 cards. These cards range from 1 (Aces) to 10s, with accompanying Pages (11 = 2 because 1 + 1 = 2 ), Knights (12 = 3), Queens (13 = 4) and Kings (14 = 5). To keep it super simple, you can break any number into a single digit number, for example 35 is broken into 3 + 5 which gives 8. But as you advance in Tarot, you can also learn the meanings of higher numbers (up to 22) so you can cover the entire Major Arcana, because this will only elevate your readings. However, for now we have decided to keep it simple and limit this knowledge to single digits with one important exception – number 10, a number of completion. Therefore, if you can learn what the numbers from 1 to 10 mean, you have a great start to incorporate numerology in your Tarot readings.
