Numerology is the most fascinating of subjects. I've always contended that the Math is king -- above all things. Logic is the facilitator to the Math which allows the manifestation of energy into physical form. Meet our young Hugo in "The Meadow". He is an autistic savant and everything he does which allows him to communicate in the physical world is done by numbers and calculations. See how Hugo uses the constellations to figure out many traumas that affect him directly in his life. Also witness him using the energy patterns from those he loves most dearly to help save them from a terrible death.
Reading the Tarot - Numerology and the Minor Arcana
By Lyn Thurman
Numerology is basically the study of the mysterious hidden meaning that numbers can provide about a person, place or thing.
In ancient times people used numerology to predict the future. After that it was used to understand people's personalities. In Greece, some 2,600 years ago, Pythagoras, "the father of mathematics", declared that numbers set a limit to the limitless, that numbers constitute the true nature of things and that all concepts can be expressed in numbers! Further, he elaborated on the qualities and relative relationships between each of the 9 numbers and, as such, became the father of modern numerology.
There are common themes based on numerology that flow throughout the Minor Arcana. Read more to discover how learning just a few keywords can give you an inner depth to your Tarot readings...
Aces are the root force, raw energy. They indicate there are opportunities for development and change.
Keywords: beginnings, opportunities, ideas, creative potential, inspiration
Corresponding Major Arcana: The Magician
After the power and energy of the ones, the twos give the opportunity to restore balance and harmony. Twos indicate duality and the union of opposites. They are a number of harmony and co-operation, often indicating a choice.
Keywords: development, balance, harmony, choices, interaction
Corresponding Major Arcana: High Priestess
Three is the number of creativity, growth, action and enthusiasm. Threes are an expansion of the twos, bringing an initial achievement of goals.

Four is the number of stability and solid foundation. This can be a base to build on, or it could be a base that creates unneeded rigidity.

Fives signify change and unpredictability. They are an indication that established patterns are upset or changed. There may be difficulties and obstacles ahead which will need hard work if to be overcome.

Many cycles in nature correspond to the number seven and it can indicate the end of a cycle or the completion of a phase. Tension between the creative imagination and harsh reality creates a challenge. There are choices to be made and decisions to be taken now.

THE MEADOW -- A SPIRITUAL ROMANCE
"The Meadow" is an epic love story unlike anything told before. The storyline threads an earthly path through four life times, from ancient Mexica to contemporary Pakistan, and affords the reader glimpses of a place known as "The Meadow" - an inter-life waterhole where souls rest between lives.
This is a story about life and all its complexities. It is about the eternal love of two characters that seem destined to be together but who repeatedly fail to bond due to a nemesis that tracks them from life to life, tearing them apart.
The stage of "The Meadow" includes hate and retribution, international espionage and political deceit, interspersed with the brilliance of an autistic savant, offspring of the female protagonist, who tries to solve the secret and mystery of the eagle in order to save his mother.
The frustrated lovers thus have only one option - to unite in the Meadow - a place they forget all about each time they incarnate into a new life.
This site is dedicated to "The Meadow", a book of more than 600 pages and has yet to be published, but it is also devoted to sharing information about life beyond the trapdoor of death, inviting the reader to question everything, from dogmatic beliefs to the establishment.
There are many related articles here and we hope that there will be something for everyone. We hope to encourage communication and discussion between likeminded individuals willing to share their experiences to further our common goals of advancement into the future whilst learning from each other.
