1.  Number Symbolism in Tarot: Eights represent infinity, because it resembles the lemniscate, the sideways symbol of infinity. There are also eight points on the wheel of the year. To Christians, eight is a symbol of baptism and spiritual rebirth; many baptisteries and baptismal fonts have eight sides. Eight also represents the eternal spiral of regeneration.

2.  On the Kabalistic Tree of Life, eight is the number of Hod, the lowest sephirah on the left-hand pillar, the third from the top of that pillar. Hod, and therefore eight, is considered by some to be the most "unbalanced" of the Sephiroth. However, being unbalanced can be a good thing as you eventually have to move. Many consider that to be far better than being stuck in an undesired place in your life.

1.  Number Symbolism in Tarot: Numerologists consider eleven a master number. It amplifies the power of a single “one.”
2.  Although the famous and perhaps first Kabalistic book, The Sefer Yetzirah, clearly says there are ten, not nine, not eleven Sephiroth, many modern Kabalists consider Da'ath to be the eleventh Sephirah. Even so, many consider Da'ath to be a "pseudo-Sephirah," "the invisible Sephirah," or even "the Sephirah that is not a Sephirah." Some picture this in line with the second and their Sephiroth, however it is more traditionally just below it, right on the Veil of the Abyss that demarcates the line ...

1.  Number Symbolism in Tarot: Fives represent a halfway point in the profession from one to ten. In the Tarot, the five cards often symbolize a crisis: they’re the midway point, when events can either take a turn for the better or go horribly awry. Fives also symbolize the five senses, the five points on a star, and the five vowels in the English alphabet. Some metaphysicians suggest that five is important because it symbolizes a fifth element—Spirit.
2.  On the Kabalistic Tree of Life, five is the number of Geburah, the central sephirah on the left-hand pillar, the fifth in order from the top of the Tree. Geburah means "severity," and indeed, some people relate the number five to the concept of karma. To some people this means punishment for past actions. However true karma doesn't punish or reward, it educates. Sometimes that education seems severe. It's symbol is the pentagram. Five also represents humans in their most physical form: 1) ...

As such, the number one symbolized fertility, and the ...

There are seven gifts of the Holy Spirit: wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear. There are seven deadly sins: envy, sloth, gluttony, wrath, pride, lust, and greed. There are seven virtues: faith, hope, charity, fortitude, justice, temperance, and prudence. (You can see most of them in the [Tarot’s] Major Arcana.) Alchemists had seven metals: gold, ...

Originally a term created by psychologist Carl Jung meaning that the mind creates a relationship between two events when none exists. What the mind created to link the two unrelated events was considered psychologically interesting. For some researchers, magick is this same sort of acausal connecting principle because a ritual or magickal act seems to have no direct causal effect on the outcome of the ritual, and yet the desired outcome occurs after the magickal work. Some people use the term ...

1.  Number Symbolism in Tarot: The number ten has primal, deep-seated significance for all of us. When babies are born, parents immediately do a quick count of fingers and toes. When we learn to count as children, we use our ten fingers as tools. Ten is the number of culmination, completion, and perfection. There are also ten spheres on the Kabalistic Tree of Life, and ten numbered cards in each suit of the [Tarot’s] Minor Arcana.

2.  On the Kabalistic Tree of Life, ten is the number of Malkuth, the lowest sephirah on the central pillar. Therefore, ten represents the material plane, the physical location of the four elements, and mundane consciousness. One, or Kether, is the cause, and ten is the effect. The numbers two through nine are the means.

1.  Number Symbolism in Tarot: Three symbolizes creation—the result of two separate forces combining to create a third entity. A mother and a father produce a child together. A thesis and an antithesis combine to produce a synthesis. The number three can also represent body, mind, and spirit, or past, present and future. Many religions believe in a holy trinity, such as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, or Maiden, Mother, and Crone, or the triple goddess of the New, Full, and Old Moon.

2.  On the Kabalistic Tree of Life, three is the number of Binah, the topmost sephirah on the left-hand pillar, the third in order from the top of the Tree. It represents the first Heh of Tetragrammaton, and thus is the universal mother.

In magickal groups, this is associated with the degree known as Magister Templi, master of the temple, implying that such a person has true mystical understanding of the mysteries.

1.  Number Symbolism in Tarot: Two represents duality and choices. The number two suggests pairs and combinations, as well as relationships, partnerships, and the attraction between two people. Twos also represent conversation and debate—the point and counterpoint of two opposing ideas, or the antithesis that rises up in response to almost every thesis. The nature of the number two also signifies a wide range of concepts that come in pairs: heaven and earth, male and female, active and passive, ...

2.  On the Kabalistic Tree of Life, two is the number of Chochma, the topmost sephirah on the right-hand pillar, the second in order from the top of the Tree. Thus, two represents the universal father and the body of the Yod, the first letter of the Tetragrammaton (its upper tip is in Kether, the first Sephirah).

Number Symbolism in Tarot: Most of us think of zero as a starting point, from which we count our way up—or down, into negative numbers. Because zero seems to precede all of the other numbers, it symbolizes the period before existence—the great void that existed before the world was created, before the Big Bang when the universe burst into existence. The circular shape of the number 0 is also a reminder of the cosmic egg, the legendary source of the universe. It suggests the outward growth ...
