Welcome to the weekly numero-tarot reading for January the 21st, 2019. In this weeks reading I will dive into the ace cards in tarot, because when we look at the numerology of the week, all numbers break down to the number 1, and number 1 links to the Ace cards in the minor arcana, plus the Magician in the major arcana. Here’s the maths:
- 21+22+23+24+25+26+27 (days of the week) which add up to 42, and then 4+2=6
- Then we look at the month of the year being 1 (because January is the first month of the year)
- Then we look at the year: 2019 (2+0+1+9=12, which is further reduced to 3 (1+2=3)
- So, then we add:
- 6+1+3=10, and 10 breaks down to 1 (1+0=1)
We always aim to break our numbers down to the smallest component to get the over-riding dominant vibration of the week.

- The Ace of Swords-Breakthroughs, new ideas, mental clarity, success
- The Ace of Cups-Love, new relationships, compassion, creativity
The Magician In Tarot
Ah, the Magician-one of my most favourite cards in the whole tarot deck. He gathers his tools in order to bring his new idea down into the physical plane. He has his feet firmly planted on the ground while still remaining connected to the divine. A perfect balance of the spiritual and physical. The Magician is the 1st card in the major arcana (after the Fool, which is numbered 0). His influence urges us to find ways to make our new ideas and inspirations practical. He is connected to alchemy-the creative force to not only imagine something new, but to get down to work and consider what resources we have available to us to make our dreams, thoughts and ideas a reality.
The number 1 in numerology
As you may have already guessed, the number 1 is the vibration of new beginnings, the start of an adventure, the new plan, the new idea. It is related to the primal force-that urge to create something- the creative force that drives all life. You may have felt that the 1st of January this year was a good time to consider new plans and new directions, but, this week has far more favourable influences as far as the dominant vibrational pattern. The first week of January was actually dominated by the number 5 which can be a number of conflict and disharmony. So if you feel like those New Year resolutions have been hard to get a move on with, this week is the time to take the bull by the horns and go for it. After the holiday season and the parties of the new year and our routines been out of wack, this week is where things begin to settle back into a routine and the year really kicks of.
Ace of Wands
The Ace of wands in tarot is related to the element of fire. Fire relates to the property of changing from one form to another. For example, it can melt steel, burn wood, shape glass and cook our food. When it comes to our passions, this card urges us to consider which direction feels the most inspiring to us. It is our inspired ideas which lead to the most change and shape shifting in our lives if we have the courage to follow the idea. In Chinese medicine the fire element is related to the heart. The heart has the most powerful electromagnetic field in our entire body, and thus entrains the rest of our body, mind and emotions.
Questions to consider:
- What is your heart urging you to do?
- Are you listening to the quiet wisdom of your heart?
The way you would know if you are or not is when you feel a certain calmness regarding a decision or direction your are pondering. It is a certain feeling of tranquility combined with a knowing. It feels joyful and inspired, but does not send you off in an imbalanced excited state. Daily meditation is the key to getting more in touch with this aspect of your heart.
Ace Of Pentacles
The Ace of Pentacles relates to the earth element, and this is where taking time to consider what our physical resources are when it comes to implementing a new path or new direction. For example, perhaps you want to renovate your house, but have not yet done a cost analysis in order to be sure you can bring your idea out of your head and into reality. Or, perhaps you are really keen to start a new exercise plan, but you have not yet mapped out the time each day you will actually commit to it. Most people fail to schedule their exercise sessions into their life to make it a reality, and therefore their new idea to exercise lasts a few days and then they go back to their old habits. This is an example of where the idea remains ‘in the clouds’, and not grounded in reality. So, take stock of all your resources in the physical realm this week when thinking about a new plan.
Questions to ask:
- How much time do I realistically have to dedicate to something new?
- How much money do I need in order to do what I want to do?
- What people in my life may be able to help with what it is I want to do?
Ace Of Swords
The Ace of Swords relates to new beginnings in the mental realm. If your life has been dominated by a sense of confusion of late, this week is a good week to set your mind straight and gain some clarity. The suit of swords relates to the element of air in tarot, and this element can change swiftly and be elusive. It may be a good week to write down and ‘catch’ those new ideas on paper and then test them with your heart (can you be calm AND excited about the idea?). New ideas can be elusive, so stay alert to them. You don’t want to miss any breakthroughs!
Questions to ask
- Where and how will I store my ideas this week? Will I record a message on my phone, on a physical notepad, in an app, a desktop or sticky on notes?
- When do I tend to get my best ideas? In the shower? Just before getting out of bed? At night? While I am exercising or meditating?
Ace of Cups
The Ace of Cups in tarot relates to the emotions, the spiritual realms and the element of water. It can indicate a time of healing which is instigated by a new beginning in your emotional world. Anything non tangible and subjective comes into play with the suit of Cups, and the Ace indicates a certain refreshment of the spirit and an ability for compassion whether that be for others or the self. This week may be positive for new beginnings within your love relationships or new love. It can also be a great time for healing within an existing relationship where new energies are present to be drawn from.
Questions to ask
- Where might I need some healing emotionally?
- Are there areas I need to show more compassion for towards others or myself?
- What do I attribute to my higher self or higher power? Am I able to have faith in it this week? Am I able to surrender to the life giving energies of my deep creative force?
So, that’s a wrap for this week. Feel free to comment below and let me know what your new beginnings might be this week. Will you ride the wave of fresh inspiration, new directions and ideas?

Hey Thomas-this course is not about teaching people to become a therapist. That would require you to do much more…
I’m a little concerned, and in no way challenging this certification, but, can there be harm on someone considering themselves…
My pleasure Jane. Yes she is so skilled and I love her work. I still use the tools she taught…
