Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : How does numerology fall into place with the bible?

Also, what about other things in the occult. like white magic, telepathy, lucid dreaming, mystiques, tarot cards. I just don’t understand. If your intentions are good, then how can such things be condemned by the bible. If I was born under these cosmic forces (according to numerology) & that is what makes me who I am then how can the study of such be evil. Please give me any insight.
I want educated answers only!!

Answer by Linda Fallsrock
Chances are numerology is just a game, not having anything to do with God.

Answer by Silver
biblical numerology is the study of numbers in the bible. two of the most commonly repeated numbers in the bible are 7 and 40. the number 7 signifies completion or perfection, 40 is the number of probation or trial.

as far as tarot cards and the like, nothing connected to spiritism, witchcraft, astrology, etc. is God’s intention for us as a means to discover information

Silver is right:

Number in Scripture:
Its Supernatural Design and Spiritual Significance
by E. W. Bullinger

Many writers, from the earliest times, have called attention to the importance of the great subject of Number in Scripture. It has been dealt with, for the most part, in a fragmentary way. One has dealt with some particular number, such as “seven”; another has been content with a view of the primary numbers, and even when defining their significance, has given only one or two examples by way of illustration; another has confined himself to “symbolical numbers,” such as 10, 40, 666, etc.; another has taken up such symbolical numbers in their relation to chronology or to prophecy; another has collected examples, but has dealt little with their meaning.

These put your trust in something else rather than God.
Saying you were “born” under these forces is a lie. God knew you before you formed in the womb/

Answer by AHMAD FUAD Harun
Dear,

God created mankind and make mankind as agent on earth. God created life and health and God created death. God, He, who give glory and dignity. He, who degrades and disgraces.

Therefore, there’s nothing to do with numerology. Your glory and dignity is how you face life and work for it. You yourself may be degrade and disgrace if you’re not careful in life. You’re an agent of God on earth. Make your life happy and fruitful while you’re living.

Answer by st_louis_cardsfan
I can most certainly tell you that there is no occultic magic or mystical card tricks in the Bible but numerology is indeed used in the Bible. Hebrews used a alpha/numerical system to code words called Gematria. In Matthew Chapter 1 verse 17 Matthew states that there was 14 Generations from Abraham to David, 14 generations from David until Babylonian captivity and 14 Generations from captivity to the birth of Christ. This is 3 distinct sets of 14 generations from Abraham to Christ with David as the Central character. There are 3 letters in Davids name in Hebrew and the numerical total of these letters equals 14. Do a web search for a Gematria calcualtor on line and see if I am not correct.

Also the sum of the name Ceasar Nero equals the number of the beast.

Answer by mariachinieve
The short answer to numerology specifically, is read up on Kabballah (the origial Jewish version, not that newfangled Hollywood stuff).
Occult instruments like you mentioned are not intrinsically evil, they are inert material things or phenomena and therefore neither good nor evil. It is the intention and attitude with which they are handled that makes the act (or intention) good or evil. You are lumping topics together that are actually very different . Numerology is a medieval science. Telepathy is a psychological phenomenon. Tarot cards are a series of archetypal depictions.
There are many, many instances of lucid dreaming, telekinesis and telepathy in the bible – like when Elijah ascends to Mount Carmel; Moses ‘speaking’ with the burning bush or basically the entire books of Isaiah, Hosea, and Ezekiel.
The question here is who are they (in this case biblical prophets) communicating with, and why? In the context of your question relating to the bible, the intent is to quench a thirst for knowledge of one’s own being and it’s relationship to the universe, in order to enter into a deeper and dynamic relationship with God.

None of these ‘occult’ subjects are actually condemned verbatim in the bible. Neither does the bible state that these forces make you who you are by birthright. It states that God makes you who you are. These ‘cosmic forces’ are just road signs, and will not lead you to any deeper understanding of life or your spiritual self (of course, spirit being that part of us that is in union with God).
An important difference is that when say, consulting the tarot, one is asking for mundane, secular information like “will I win the lottery?”. It is an essentially selfish pursuit that centers on “me, me, me”. When one examines psychic phenomena in the bible, what emerges is the theme of total abandonment to God. Nothing happens or exists except through the will of God. The self disappears into the eternal radiation of the Spirit. Yes, the prophets experience lucid dreams (or visions) and interpret signs, but it is not for personal gain. It stems from and culminates in an overwhelming love for creation and for God. The biblical mystics surrender their personal will and intent to the will of God (and later to Christ in the Christian tradition). This in turn demands total trust in God, to put all anxieties and questions in the hands of God. To love God completely so as to trust God’s complete and nurturing love for them. With their spiritual growth comes the understanding that everything has a reason and our personal will may not be what benefits creation. Spells, charms and such, on the other hand, demand the exact opposite. They do not rely on love rather on sheer force (here psychic rather than physical) and there is the selfish expectation that “so mote it be” whether or not it is morally ethical or benefits the global community. The conjurer calls on forces (usually not divine in nature) to bend to their personal will for selfish reasons. You don’t often find “charms for world peace” listed in spellbooks!

That being said, however, there are good reasons why it is not a good idea to fool around with these things. To study these things without benefit of a spiritual director is just plain stupid. It is like dialling up numbers randomly over the phone and starting a psycho-spritual relationship with whoever happens to pick up the other line. You don’t know who you’re calling, what qualities they possess, or what their intentions are towards you. From experience, I can tell you that evil is a very very real quality and is alive and well here on Earth. Watching tonight’s news should tell you that. Without proper training you have no way to protect yourself should something go wrong. That is why, in all major traditions, there is a community based teaching approach to mysticism. There is a lot of danger of misintepretation and or psychological overload, and a lot of training and discipline (and prayer!) is involved.

I’ve always wondered how many and what the names are of the cards in a Tarot deck. Does it matter what kind of deck you have or what?

Here’s all the cards:

Answer by philebus
There are many packs and patterns with numerous variations on the trumps. Here are the standard cards starting with the trump sequence that took as its theme a traditional Christian triumph procession – hence they were called trionfi, meaning triumphs and from which we get our word trump. It was the invention of tarot that marked the introduction of trumps into card games!

There are 78 cards in this pack:

Matto, or The Fool – An un-numbered card, not traditionally a trump at all, functioning in the earliest games as an excuse. It is still used this way in Italy, Sicily, France, Denmark and Switzerland. Other countries now employ it as the highest ranking trump.

1. Il Bagatto – Not really a magician at all, that was a change made by occultists. This is the lowest trump and ranks among the three honour cards, with a higher point value and scoring an extra bonus if it is used to win the last trick of a hand.

2. Not a priestess but the Popess. It seems like a strange figure to us now, perhaps even heretical but in fact this was a common figure in Christian art during the 15th century and later, representing diverse subjects such as faith, church law, doctrine, the new covenant, etc. Some later packs, where these allegories were less established, were cautious and replaced the figure with alternatives such as Juno.

3. The Empress.

4. The Emperor.

5. The Pope. Again, not a card that ever actually worried the church (which never objected to tarot) but again, some card makers replaced it with alternatives such as Jupiter, or even Bacchus!

The Tarocco Bolognese replaced trumps 2-5 with four equally ranking trumps called The Four Moors. (this was a political move rather than a religious one)

The Besancon tarot replaced the Female Pope and the Pope with Juno and Jupiter – the Swiss 1JJ, still in use for games such as Troccas and Troggu, uses these figures. Another pack, used in Belgium replaced these two with The Spanish Captain and Bacchus.

6. Love or The Lovers

7. The Chariot

8. Justice (occultists often swap this card’s order with Strength)

9. Originally Father Time, featuring Old Man Time with his hour glass. Later card makers mistook this for a lamp and he became a hermit.

10. The Wheel of Fortune

11. Strength

12. When French card makers added titles to the trumps, they didn’t quite know what to make of this one and called it simply The Hanged Man. However, there was no mystery about the card in Italy, where they called it The Traitor – because that’s what happened to traitors there, they were hung by one ankle and left to die slowly.

13. Death

14. Temperance. There is an interesting note to this card, usually shown with wings. In the early Italian cards, she is shown seated with the corners of the chairs back showing above her shoulders. Later card makers began to show the corners as being curved until the French card makers saw them and interpreted them as the tops of wings, electing to show the wings more explicitly.

15. The Devil

16. The Tower. Early Italian cards do not really match the more familiar designs of the Marseilles pattern, instead they were often known as the Devil’s House, showing a burning building.

17. The Star

18. The Moon

19. The Sun

20. The Judgement, also known in Italy as the Angel and is ranked above the World as the highest trump.

21. The World.

There are then the four suits from a regular pack of playing cards, each with 10 pip cards and four court cards, being the King, Queen, Cavalier, and Valet. It is worth noting that it is the Queen that is the addition here as Latin suited cards had (and still have) all male courts. The Latin suit signs are swords, cups, coins, and batons. When playing cards originally came to us via the Islamic world, batons were actually Polo sticks – but the game was not familiar in Europe at that time. While it is common for modern occultists to name coins as pentacles, this was actually due to a mistake in translation from a French source that interpreted them as talismans.

There are three packs using the Italian suits and trumps that deviate from the 78 card norm.

The Tarocco Bolognese, mentioned above for The Four Moors, has a reduced number of pip cards so that there are just 62 in total. These cards are not generally used outside of Bologna and are for a family of very old games, chief among them Ottocento – which can easily give Bridge a run for it’s money!

The next is the Tarocco Siciliano, obviously used in Sicily for a wonderful game. Again, it has a reduced number of pip cards to make a pack of 64. There are still 21 trumps (plus a Fool) but they are numbered up to 20, having a special unnumbered trump called The Beggar. The trump order is a little different from the standard and the highest trump is Giove. Another unnusual trump is number 14, which features a ship, only found elsewhere in the Minchiate.

The Minchiate was a Florentine invention, adding an extra

Answer by Lillith
With so many decks out there, the names or titles of individual cards can vary, usually when there are changes it is to fit in with the theme of the deck.

There are 78 cards in a Tarot deck; divided into 2 Arcanas;
The Major Arcana with 22 cards numbered 0-21 in roman numerals-
0 – Fool
I- Magician
II – High Priestess
III – Empress
IV – Emperor
V – Hierophant
VI – Lovers
VII – Chariot
VIII – Strength
IX – Hermit
X – Wheel of Fortune
XI – Justice
XII – Hanged Man
XIII – Death
XIV – Temperance
XV – Devil
XVI – Tower
XVII – Star
XVIII – Moon
XIX – Sun
XX Judgement
XXI – World

The Minor Arcana has 56 cards.
The Minor Arcana is further divided into 4 suits;
Swords
Wands
Cups
Pentacles
The suits are sometimes changes as well such as
Blades
Batons
Chalices
Coins
The suits are of 14 cards each, cards are numbered 1-10 and have 4 Court cards- Page, Knight, Queen, King.

Some decks add in a few extra cards to the Major Arcana and are still called Tarot, but typically, any deck of cards that is not 78 cards and formatted with the Aracnum and Suits is not a Tarot deck and is called and Oracle deck.

Answer by Scorpion Mother
There are hundreds if not thousands of Tarot decks out there and although some of them vary in their names, images and meanings, the most universally known tarot deck consists of 78 cards. There are 22 “Major Arcana” which represent karmic experiences, or “life lessons” that all mankind must go through for spiritual growth and to complete our journey here in this life. There are also 56 “Minor Arcana” cards consisting of four “suits” (Swords, Wands, Pentacles, and Cups) numbered Ace (1) through 10, and four court cards for each suit (Kinds, Queens, Pages & Knights).

Sound familiar? Sounds similar to your ordinary deck of playing cards? Well it’s no coincidence as the playing cards you use today actually derived from the original Tarot cards. Tarot cards have existed for more than 5,000 years and no one knows for sure when they were created, by whom, or why. Their origination is as much a mystery as the cards themselves.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : How do you reada sideways tarot card?

Upright is positive meaning and down is negative. So how do yoy know which is correct for sideways?

Answer by Iworkforaliving
Sideways means nothing like all the other positions.

Answer by Kane
Undecided on the issue. Or details not supposed to be revealed at the time.

Answer by Frog
Turn your head. Sheesh!

Answer by Scarlet MacBlu
It is best to decide how you would interpret such a card before you lay it down. The only reason I can see to lay a card sideways is in the classic “Celtic Cross” spread where the second card, called the “crossing card” is laid sideways atop the first and represents an obstical in the seekers path.
Are you trying to figure out which side is “up” for this crossing card?

I read all my cards upright, so my inclination would be to interpret the crossing card as upright. If you read both reversed and upright, then I would assume that whichever way the card came off the deck before you laid it sideways would be the way to read the card.

Personally, I see no reason to read the crossing card as reversed no matter what… I’d say, when in doubt, read it upright.
