Introduction in the tarot

Introduction in the tarot- number twelve – the hanged man – the karmic debt cards

(2018) The Netherlands –

1. Introduction:

The word Tarot is devised from two Egyptian words ‘Tar ‘, meaning road, and ‘ot ‘, meaning royal

Thus we have the ‘Royal Road ‘here, to Wisdom. And the Hermetic tradition believes also that the Tarot comes to us through the Gypsies and can be traced back to the religious symbols of the Egyptians. The Hermetic traditions believe that the earliest records of the Tarot are about 35.000 years old.

These Hermetic traditions tells of two major secrets yet to be discovered beneath the Great Pyramid of Gizeh

It is said that a hidden temple contains magnificent tablets on which are inscribed the totality of the Universal Laws, concerning the soul ‘s journey through the cycle of birth, death and re-birth.

78 of these tablets are known as the physical Tarot and 30 are called the ‘esoteric or spiritual Tarot – a total of 108 tablets revealing the mystery and purpose of the soul to mankind.

It appears that divination and Tarot originally dated back specifically to the Egyptian Hermetic Mystery Initiations, which thus influenced ancient Hebrew and Greek, both of which had correspondence with traders from the East from time to time, and the rest “is history,” as they say.

Karmic Debt Cards


About karmic debt cards we can say that feeling trapped in a bad situation is not the best thing that can overcome us. But even a debt number has a positive site. Remember that there is always a solution, and that solution will come.

We are spiritual beings and we live forever. Your soul will never leave you and it helps you to come and live through the incarnations that we must pass.

The more conscious we are, the better the next life will be. We aim for harmony

That is the reason why it is good to know ourselves. To recognise the polarities within ourselves is to know ourselves better. We have a rainbow inside us, because between the right and the left side of our character there is some space, rainbow space, and between the left and the right side of our brain there is space to choose.

That space is full of likes and dislikes and it has many colours. Add to your personal rainbow and find out about it, so you can learn to know yourself better. Colours and nuances are over there. Do not judge them, but accept the situation for others and for yourself. We are born as dual beings. They are two sides of us. We can learn to handle the patterns around us as soon as we can handle the pattern within us.

The pattern of Kundalini Yoga is a wonderful methode to learn, see on my web-log here on this homepage.

Yin and Yang can come together and merge in one-another to become Oneness. That makes humans illuminated.

2. Number twelve as being a special number

Number 12 in the Tarot is not a karmic debt number, but number 12 is like a realm of spirituality. In the bible for instance we know the 12 apostles and we know all about the 12 signs, or the heavenly bodies in the sky. The twelve signs are Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Balance, Scorpio, Sagitarius, Capricornus, Aquarius and Pisces.

The people with the number 12 in their chard as a life lesson number or as their destiny number or their soul number are no ‘sheeps’ and they are not sleeping, they are awake, but they are in reverse.

Up side down. In the tarot this people ‘s symbol is ‘the hanged man’ and this hanged man, or number 12 is going his own way.

He knows about a lot of enigma ‘s.That is the reason why they are special and most of the time in peace

But sometimes when they go against their natural way, they really can become unhappy and feel bogged down. Until the law of the universe calls them back in order.One way or the other! That can be painful because they have to surrender and take a break to meditate about what where and how.

Perhaps new plans and ideas will come through them during the pause and pop up in their spiritual minds. The universe will resonate when the mind stays clear and calm. The number 12 is a number about changing the mind and about a new perspective that is coming. A new perspective on a higher level.

3. The karmic debt numbers and theit cards

When we are born with one of those debt numbers it can indicate that we will have a more difficult life than the other people with the more ‘easy’ numbers. But we can do something about it. When we grow up we can pay more attention about the meaning of that number to work on it. Because to become more conscience about the meaning of your life path number and some other numbers involved, will make your life much more easy to live. The karmic debt numbers are 13/4, 14/5, 16/7, 19/1, 26/8.

To start with the number 13/4 as a personal debt number

The debt number 13

This number has always been feared as ‘the death number’ and indeed it does represent death. But not in the ordinary way or sense.

The life of a person with this number will be one of constant change. Here this instability of the material world for those people strengthens the bound between them and the spiritual world. Their idealism knows no bounds and they can transform the most desperately loss into a worldwide venture by their understanding.

Peaceful changes, release, transformation, if it works out well with patience. When these persons are without calmes and patience there could be destruction in their lives. The tarot card that fits with this number is ‘Death’, number 13 in the tarot. Keywords are here transformation, rebirth, transmutation. The sign Scorpio fits with number 13. Eternal life, changing form. And remember,death belongs only to earth. Peaceful changes and release will appear when living in harmony.

The next karmic debt number is number 16/7

You are a clear-sighted intellectual with the ability to access circumstances easily and accurately and this can lead to a tendency of speculation. That will be dangerous. Over – confidence, material loss trials, defeats, and loss of material security. Emotional discontent. Examine your life and your attitudes. Is your personality dominated by motions. Be aware of your selfishness or unsympathetic nature and than change it.

Financial en professional losses can dominate your environment. Learn truth and faithfulness. The splendor of the 16/7 is that when a person with this number learns to be free from the illusory world around and is not dependent on it anymore.
