Astrology, Numerology and Tarot

The purpose of divining tools is to increase self-awareness. It is not to assist the ego in manipulating the future. Below, I’ve listed the most popular of the divining tools. There are, of course, many others, such as the I Ching, Runes, tea leaves, palmistry, handwriting analysis, crystal balls and pendulums.


Astrology exerts an influence on humans, but is not a major cause of the human condition. Professional astrologers have determined many subtle details in the relationship between an individual and the stars that correspond to major archetypes of a soul’s experience. For example, a soul wanting to learn about expression of feelings may have a lot of water signs in their natal horoscope. I’m not an astrologer and I’m not going to go deeply into astrology on my site. I can recommend an astrologer if someone is interested in pursuing this further.


Like all divining tools, numerology is a trigger to help us remember our Divinity. Perhaps the main meaning of master numbers like 11 is to help us remember we are all ONE. When you put ONE and ONE together, you do not always make TWO. Sometimes you make ELEVEN. Perhaps when two or more are gathered, the energy is 11 times more powerful. Numerology is prevalent in the natural world. The golden mean ratio exists in nature in many ways – the proportion of arms to legs to hand, etc., and the Fibonacci sequence is found in the spiral shape of many creatures. Many of our numbers are based on calendar interpretations of the motion of heavenly bodies. Some significant numbers that keep showing up are 7, 12, 13 and 22. I think it's conceivable that just about any number can have significance depending on how it is used. Numerology is primarily a divining tool because it becomes a trigger for learning more about the soul's journey.


Tarot is probably the most popular of the divining tools because it paints a picture of the major and minor archetypes of humanity. There is some debate as to the origin of the Tarot, but it evidently evolved from the ancient Kaballah, or Tree of Life. Each aspect in Tarot represents a particular set of soul lessons or experiences, and the position of the cards, whether they are upright or reversed, etc., gives details about the success or failure of the soul in dealing with major life lessons. Tarot, used properly, is not fortune telling. Fortune telling involves abdicating responsibility for one’s own free will. Telling somebody what’s going to happen (even if it were possible to know for certain) will, in most cases, rob the soul of needed lessons and experience. It is impossible to be 100% accurate when divining because free will allows a soul to change his/her mind and create something other than what’s coming up in a reading.

All divining tools are road maps to help see where you are going and how to deal with the sights along the way. They should not tell you what to do – that is up to you – but they are extremely useful in bringing things to your attention that you may not have noticed.
