Numerology + Tarot = Divine Pairing

Have you heard of the term 'Tarot Birth Card'?

Every card in a Tarot deck has a numerological equivalent.

If you’re already familiar with Numerology, you probably understand a little about the power, meaning and symbolism contained in the numbers 1 – 9 and these same meanings translate through to Tarot as well.

You'll need to know your life path number, which is as easy as adding up the numbers in your birthday for example:

19.08.1994 = 1+9+8+1+9+9+4 = 41 = 4+1 = 5

Once you have your life path number on hand, read on and discover how the Tarot aligns with your numerological energy matrix!
