Tarot Tip Tuesdays - Keep It Simple Again: Another Reading Using Tarot And Numerology

Whether you are new to Tarot and in the throes of building a connection with your Tarot cards or an advanced Tarot reader diligently honing your Tarot reading skills, I am putting out a Tarot tip a week to help you to consistently make Tarot a part of your everyday life.

So here goes your Tarot Tip for this Tuesday:
After posting last week's blog post for  Tarot Tip Tuesday,  I had several emails and messages from clients, protégés and friends who thought that the blog post was very useful.  So I had decided to do another one.  Someone requested that I included some basic traits of each number for a high level numerological interpretation that were "easy-to-remember".  That was a fabulous idea and I certainly hope that true to the spirit of this blogpost, the content will help you keep your readings simple.

Numerological Traits

Here are a list of numerological traits attached to each number. Although these traits listed here are brief and provide you only a high level summary of the vibrational energy attached to each number, they are quite useful whenever you calculate a querant's basic numerological makeup like his or her character and lifepath numbers, 

1:   Ambitious, Aggressive, Stubborn, Innovative
2:   Tactful, Thrive in peaceful, harmonious situations, Clingy, Intuitive, Sensitive
3:   Creative, Expressive, Communicative, Happy-go-lucky, Fun-loving
4:   Organized,  Structured, Disciplined, Hardworking
5:   Restless, Needs mental stimulation, Easily bored, Loves travel, Adventurous
6:   Nurturing, Giving, Selfless, Family-oriented, Good with communication, Soft persuasion skills
7:  Thinker, Analyzer, Loner, Spiritual
8:  Entrepreneurial, Business-minded, Financially savvy, Hard-nosed, Hardworking, Persistent, workaholic
9:  Generous, Humanitarian, Protective of space, Knowledge seeking, Idealistic

Step 1: Obtain the basic information from your querant.  All you would need is a birthdate and a focused question. Remember to keep the question focused so that the advice provided can be a focused one.

The Client: Brian

Birthdate:  26 July 1979
Astrological Sign : Leo

Question: I have been looking for a job for the past 1 year after resigning from a previous job due to my inability to get along with a new boss that joined the team after a re-organization happened in the company. What is the possibility of finding a new job ?

Step 2: Calculate your querant's character and lifepath numbers. These will offer you a glimpse of your querant's attitudes and behavior and how he or she responds to a given situation.

Character (behavior and attitudes ) : Add the compound number of your querant's day of birth.  In this case, his day of birth is 26, so his character number is 8  (2+6 = 8).

Brian's character number was 8, corresponding to the Strength card in tarot. This indicated that he was a  very persevering person in the face of challenges. 8 was the number of one who had a special gift for business as he could conceive ideas and plans on a grand scale. He had good executive skills and was a good judge of values. With his dogger personality, Brian would not have a problem looking for that job because he would leave no stones unturned. If he wanted to try his hand at establishing his own business, that could be an alternative option with which he could meet his goals too.  Brian's character number is aligned with the traits of his astrological sign Leo too.  As a Leo, he was dynamic and ambitious and enjoyed making an impression on others, although sometimes he could come across as being quite aggressive and domineering.  He had to temper his  aggressiveness, and forward attitude so that he did not come across as being too overbearing and consequently intimidating to the hiring managers  whom he had interviewed with.  So my advice to Brian was to harness the strengths of his character 8 and his astrological sign Leo to approach his job search with optimism, confidence and determination.  

 Life Path (Opportunities and lessons in life) : Add the day of birth, month of birth and year of birth.  Then add up the individual numbers of the compound number.    In this case, by adding up his day of birth 26, his month of birth 7 and his year of birth  1979, the compound number is 41. On further reduction of that compound number, his life path number is 5 (2+6+7+1+9+7+9 = 41).  Then reduce the compound number (4+1 = 5).

Brian's life path was  5. This told me that life offered him opportunities to be catalyst for change and required him to be flexible and resilient to these changes. He needed freedom of thought, freedom to explore new things. He needed to walk a journey that was off the beaten track, and  travel to gain more knowledge.  With his lifepath 5, I advised Brian to be opened to job opportunities that may stretch him outside of his comfort zone.  This will offer him opportunities to learn new skills and gain new knowledge.  I also advised him to roll with the punches when he came face to face with organizational changes in future,  by viewing such changes as an opportunity to step up and shine, he could possibly make a difference to his team or the company.

Step 3: Now that you have got a glimpse of your querant's attitudes and how he or she might respond to a given situation, you can create a simple Tarot spread.  Use the birthdate numerology to deepen the insight from the cards and guide you as you provide your querants a focused advice. 

Tarot cards picked:  Past - Queen of Swords ; Present - Page of Pentacles Reversed; Future - 2 of Cups 

Past - Queen of Swords
If the  Queen of Swords was a manifestation of Brian in his past, it seemed to be a reflection of his sentiments that he had the skills, experience and knowledge needed for whatever job he set his sights on.  However, knowing that he had a character number 8 and was a Leo and that he might have come across as arrogant, domineering or overbearing, I cautioned Brian that he needed to sell his skills and talent with an approach that convinced the hiring managers he was not only talented and skilled but was a humble person who could work cohesively within a team.  As the Queen of Swords, it could also be a manifestation of Brian in his last job trying to assert his independence and shine above his new boss with his experience and skills, when what he should have done was to proactively assure his new boss that his skills and experience would be a good support for the boss. I would not be surprised with this and his "Queen of Swords" hard-edged attitude could have come between them both.  
This was a good experience for Brian because what he should have done was to harness the resilience and flexibility afforded him with his lifepath number 5 to manage that boss.

Present - Page of Pentacles Reversed
The reversed Page was a manifestation of the current blockages standing in the way of his achieving his career goals. He might have been nurturing ideas in his mind, and trying to think about his goals and the best type of jobs that suited him but he was possibly not doing enough to put an action plan together to ensure he could achieve these goals in a practical manner. This lined up with the restlessness from his lifepath number 5 so Brian was advised to be more grounded in his approach to evaluating his career goals and the direction he was steering to get to his goals.  At the same time, the Page also indicated that in his job search, he was focusing too much on short-term goals, for example, his need for financial security  rather than sustainable and long-term goals. He would  need to move beyond material satisfaction and towards what would bring him sustainable happiness and fulfillment.

Future - 2 of Cups
The 2 of Cups assured Brian that he would be able to find a job soon that would fulfill him and would tap on his creativity.  There would be organizational fit between him and his new role and he would be enjoying a lot of connection with his new boss and colleagues.  With the persistent nature of his character 8, I had no doubt that Brian would be able to find that job he wanted and achieve his career goals.  As a Leo, I advised that as long as he remained true to his vision and went out there to make an impression with his optimism and confidence, his hiring managers would find that he could be an asset to the company.
As you can see, the Tarot spread is small and all it took was the querant's birthdate to add another dimension to the advice given. Although the process was quite straightforward and simple, the advice given to the querant is robust enough to empower him to work on it and change his course of action to achieve his goals,
You can try it some time.   If you need to understand the different vibrational energy and traits attached to each number when you calculate one's numerology, do refer again to the list of numerological traits appended within this blogpost.

May your Tarot cards provide you with a full deck of possibilities throughout your day.
