Some of the most interesting Threads that appeared on GLP had to do with Numerology and the other mantic sciences listed in the Topic Title.

Its amazing how Astrology works when one takes away the fear of it and accepts it as just a different sort of Science, and we can say the same about Numerology, and Tarot. Some here have never even heard about Tarot, or Numerology, and even fewer understand it.

Have you ever noticed that when a person changes their name, through marriage, or gets called by a nick name by friends how, in subtle ways, the person's life alters. Oh, you would have to be very close to a person to be able to relate to what I just said about changes in the person. There is a reason for this. Names have, not only meanings, but they have a sound current, or vibration, just like songs do. Some songs produce certain moods. It has been scientifically shown that plants will flourish when they "hear" some forms of classical music, or even the New Age music like from Enya, and others.

Over at GLP a number of Numerologists appeared and wrote some interesting messages, and hopefully there are some here too. sun.gif

very true Chuck. Astrology is my passion and love but I have also dabbled into numerology a little too, mostly in life path numbers (birthdate). Looking at each digit of our birth number it uncovers hidden meanings related to our life purpose. And thanks for bringing up "energies" because the energies of the digits that make up our birth number all contribute to the texture of our life, the way that individual colors of a painting contribute to its totality, or how you mentioned music, just like the instruments in an orchestra produce its sound. Also within this system, the order or position of each digit in the birth number determines its degree of influence. Take for example, I am a 36/9...so the 3 and 6 aren't as influential as the 9.

Names are wonderful to disect too. They also produce certain energies. For as little as I have read about names, it appears to be similar to astrology. Where the name as a whole produces one energy (similar to sun sign = inherant traits) the vowels added create the emotional aspect of that person (similar to moon sign) and the consonants added create the outward personality (similar to rising). You are right about the changing of the name changes energies of the person.

Its quite fascinating and although I tend toward astrology. You definitely see patterns emerging in relationships (working,personal, etc) that correlate with astrology and also (since I love movies) relationships of actors and their movie roles that correlate with certain signs working together and such. (my best friend is great at noticing that one, shes into tarot too).

Love & Peace

Amalia,

I've studied many of the so-called "New Age" sciences for a number of years, and it never ceases to amaze me how much I pick up, or even another way of verbalizing something that at times can get pretty complex.

Your message is an example. The system that I embrace is known as the Chaldean system. However, this must be a misnomer since the origin of the system is more in tune with Pythagoras who gave his students the secret of the Silence of the Number 9. And, even today in this system there are no letters, from A to Z that have the 9. That does not mean that a name, as you pointed out, would not total a 9.

Since we have discussed names I looked at the President, and the man running against him for President. In my system of numerology we would use the title President as part of the name vibratory. President=37 or 1, and Bush=16, or 7. We add this together 1+7=8 and this produces a Fatalistic number. Still, there are many other vibrations associated with Mr. Bush. Examples include, W, GW, GWBush, but It's nearly always President Bush as official gatherings and appearances. Still, those other vibrations act like a buffer to the actual President Bush vibration.

John Kerry: Let's see what President Kerry looks like. We have the 37, or 1 for President and the name Kerry=12. The 12 sadly is an unfavorable vibration, and when we add the President, or 1 to the 12=3 we get another unfavorable vibratory, the single 4.

Have you ever heard about the Chaldean system? It is quite accurate. Honestly, Amalia, I have never seen it fail, and I have studied this system and others for longer than I care to say publicly.

What is the most important vibration in a person's life? In my opinion, it is the name that an individual is most widely known as. Here's an example. If a guy is known as Pete, but his name at birth was Peter, the name Pete, what everyone knows him as has the most power over all other numbers in the life. I have heard some people say that the life path is the most important. But, in my educated opinion, this cannot be since most people don't even know about life path numbers, but they do know about their first name. The second most important number in a person's life is the last name. In fact, in the Military, most people call each other by their last name. The third most influential number in a person's life is the birth number...all other numbers pale in comparison with those first three, the first name, last name, and the birth number.

I think one reason why the Chaldean system is not very popular results from the idea that many numbers show up as unfavorable, and most people do not want to hear bad news, and they are reluctant to change, and do what is necessary to bring their lives into synchronous harmony.

Glad you responded to this thread. Looking forward to more!

Love and Light,

Chuck

Something interesting, the US military have a zodiac patent.
United States Patent 6,776,618
D'Zmura August 17, 2004

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Method of determining zodiac signs


Abstract
The invention provides the methods for creating empirically valid astrological data, artifacts and information, being the data of astrological components by zodiac sign position correlated to the actual zodiac constellations, and the information, objects, tools and resources which are manufactured to reflect, house, or process this data. These component data and artifacts provide accurate, naturally factual, representations, in contrast to those provided by contemporary astrology. Once component data is established, the values can be processed into analytic charts, tables and aspect grids, displaying and representing the astrological profile of subject inquiry. The invention provides three celestial mapping systems correlated to the constellations, these based on a mapping origin at the vernal equinox in ecliptic coordinates, mapping locations named to the twelve zodiac signs in order, by 30/360 grid, by actual layout of the stars in constellation, and by zodiac symbol figured to said stars in constellation.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Inventors: D'Zmura; David Andrew (P.O. Box 531, Doylestown, PA 18901)
Appl. No.: 849582
Filed: May 5, 2001


TECHNICAL FIELD

The invention describes innovative astrological methods, processes, apparatuses and systems. Unique celestial mapping systems, processes and star catalogues are described, as are unique innovations in astrological tarot and in alpha-numerology.

BACKGROUND

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth . . . . And God said, "Let there be light in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years, and let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth." And it was so. God made two great lights--the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. (God) also made the stars. God set them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth, to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening, and there was morning--the fourth day." From the Book of Genesis, The Holy Bible, New International Version, Zondervan Bible Publishers.

As popular as the weather, astrology is a global, omnipresent, mainstream endeavor, with substantial media coverage and commercial industry. Nearly every one has opinions about it or has heard of it. The bevy of astrologers offering services confirms the public curiosity, acceptance and commercial support of this vocation, hobby and entertainment. Syndicated columns in newspapers, magazines and publications, televised programs and spots, tele-services and info-mercials, internet and web sites, plus the myriad advisors, professionals and professional associations, books, CD-ROM's and disks, comprise the large astrology industry. On a global, world-wide basis, astrology is practiced and performed in a few distinct, but interrelated, methodological forms across the entirety of the world's peoples.

In turn, astrologers ardently study and discuss their subject. Assorted titles are available at most libraries, with many volumes being carried by America's largest booksellers and computer program vendors. The use of astrology permeates the personal realm as numerous persons and peoples use astrology for diverse purposes and reasons. From "getting to know" someone, to the decisions shaping nations and business, one hears frequently of the use of astrology by people, from President's wives to stock selection experts. "What is your sign?" is a question often heard.

But this interest in astrology is undermined by the methods of the consolidated astrology industry. Unbeknownst to the public at large, the current and exclusive methods for the determination of astrological information, to discover and render the "signs" under which a person is allegedly born, are factitious or erroneous. For each or any astrological component and at each and every epoch in time, the zodiac positions determined, rendered or stated by these prior arts are wrong as to astrological content.

Astrology has long been practiced, with peoples over the course of time using its products and services for interpretation, recreation, meditation, analysis, fortune-telling, games, augury and entertainment. Now astrology is used in many applications including psychology, healing, planning, investment, diet, hygiene, travel, interpersonal relationships, self and God awareness. Astrology for the common individual first became popular last century, in tow with the advent of personal psychology. Earlier, astrology was practiced for nations, leaders, celebrities, omens, wars and welfare, or for past, present and future dates or events such as solstices and eclipses.

Up until the nineteenth century, our solar system was known to include only the planets up to Saturn. Ancient astrologers were the astronomers of yore and devised an interpretative system for the meaning of the planetary locations and interactions. Hence, just as alchemists were the forerunners of modern chemistry, astrologers were de facto the astronomers in times past. Yet, just as the chemists separated out from the alchemists, the astronomers parted ways with the astrologers.

The astronomers were concerned with the precise, tangible science of celestial mechanics, coming to renounce any interpretative arts, for lack of proven causality. This fissure continues today, overshadowing the vital error within the astrologers' fundamental methods. This dispute covers over the substantive issue at the heart of astrological inquiry: the current astrological methods return factitious, empirically false, phenomenologically inaccurate, zodiacal positions, leading to the larger consequence that all prior art artifacts, products and services misinform as well, given their erroneous component data.

Astrology evolved in its own course, having much about it that is sturdy. Historic progress through the nineteenth and twentieth centuries included new discoveries, such as the planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Astrologers assigned meaning to these new planets; astrology embraced these gifts from astronomy, with a resultant common presumption that astrology is as scientific as possible, if still questionable in effect.

Although the physics of astrology depict the heavens as circling the earth, the consequence of this fallacy is trivial, as pertains to the accuracy of the components moving across the zodiacal belt. So it is not a consequential fault for the astrologer to showcase the component positions as moving along the zodiacal circuit, with the earth as center. Moreover, this conveys the relativity from the subject's perspective. Ancient maps of the heavens, however, were as apt to be drawn from the vantage looking in on earth, with the order of the constellations, the zodiac included, then being reversed in order and directional motion, from the earth-centered, outward-looking, vantage. From their system perspective, the subject is in the opposite sign, and the sign order is reversed. See also Constellations. National Audubon Society Pocket Guide. ISBN 0-679-77998-1. Page 192.

Astrology, according to Webster's Dictionary, is "the divination of the supposed influences of the stars and planets on human affairs and terrestrial events by their positions and aspects". The positions are of primary importance to the astrologer, since the aspects are found from the component positions, which must first be established correctly. Astrologer's reference sources are used to establish the zodiacal positions per the query inputs of time, date and earthly location. "One's horoscope is a map of the heavens at the time of one's birth, showing the position of the heavenly bodies in the ZODIAC", according to The Concise Columbia Encyclopedia. However, these astrologer's resources, containing any of ephemerides (calendars of component zodiac positions), related look-up tables, instructions, algorithms and/or automated computations, engineer, or are themselves engineered to, empirically artificial positions. Nevertheless, the implicit and obvious assumption is that component data be of the empirically natural, zodiacal position of star, sign and symbol.

Neither the astrological community nor its commercial products and services utilize the concretely observable zodiacal positions. Thus, while the astrological community uniformly uses prior art systems, the public is not aware of this discrepancy from natural fact, especially as the various practiced forms of astrology imply or even assert that their methods are concrete. Moreover, what is not obvious is the magnitude and significance of systemic error, for its magnitude causes the data, the astrological artifacts rendered thereby and interpretative comments thereon, to be greatly comprised. The signs must be right and not corrupted.

Astrological methods, and hence their reference resources, processing apparatuses and systems, do not produce the invention's zodiacal positions and artifacts for the querist or for those who use astrology. If the error of prior art methods were but slight! Current methods essentially place every planet and angle in an incorrect zodiacal sign, or at a significantly incorrect degree within a sign, depending on the particular prior art astrological form, thus misleading the astrologer at each and every turn during assessment of a profiled disposition.

Indeed, when a Western astrologer says, for example, that in February 1998, Saturn is in Aries (per standard astrologer's ephemeris, e.g., Parker's Astrology, by J. and D. Parker, 1991, p.388), how should anyone using that reference know that this is naturally incorrect? Saturn was actually in the sign/constellation of Pisces at that time, see FIG. 4, for month, February 1998.

Aries is a cardinal, masculine fire sign, ruler of Mars, exalted by the Sun. In comparison, Pisces is a mutable, feminine water sign, ruler of Neptune (and by tradition, of Jupiter), exalted by Venus. These two signs, like all neighboring signs, are very different, with very distinct meanings for purposes and usages of interpretative astrology.

This falsification occurs not to just a single, isolated planet, but to each and every solar, lunar, planetary and axial component requisite to astrological purposes. The component data represented by all prior art methods, resources, apparatuses and systems consistently reveal empirically false zodiacal position/sign assignment and data. This systemic and persistent error is of catastrophic import because all astrological signs/positions change as a result. Products and services using prior art artifacts of position data will fully mislead any user's interpretation, information or entertainment.

Thanks Chuck. I was not aware of the chaldean system. I did a quick search and noticed that its similar to the Cabala that contains a magico-philosophical science of numbers known as gematria, based on the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet. They also omitted the number 9 because it was held to be of special significance; in the Cabalistic tradition it was considered to be the numerical equivalent of the name of God.

I agree, trying to explain different numerology systems is like trying to find the square root of a sonnet...ya know? hehe

Love & Peace

After many years of very close study with various systems it came down to the so-called "Chaldean" system. Actually, the system is said to be lost in antiquity. However, about 10,000 years ago the entities who inhabited Greece at the time, and the same one's who wrote the Bible, gave this system of Numbers.

There are so many examples of the system I refer to in the Bible that it would take pages here to show them all. Nonetheless, you show an interest, and I shall give you a startling example of how the Greek Science Book, (the Holy Bible) is a product of great Number design as put forth by the Greeks.

Take a look at the 119Th Psalm. This Psalm consists of 176 verses, every one of which directly or indirectly calls attention to the precepts laid down in the entire book.

The Psalm itself is, by some mysterious law of calculation, divided into 22 sections, the exact number of the letters that compose the Hebrew Alphabet. Each section is subdivided into 8 verses, each verse being an iambic tetrameter, namely 16 syllables alternately short and long. This is in the original Hebrew version.

Then, even more extraordinary, every one of the 8 verses of the first section begins with the first letter of the Hebrew Alphabet; Aleph, or the Number 1. And, so it goes with the 8 verses of the second section with the 2ND letter Beth, then the third letter Gimel. This continues until all the 22 original Hebrew letters of the Hebrew Alphabet are employed. Each letter of the Hebrew Alphabet has a number assigned to it, and is worthy of study.

There is so much more that I could say here, but that ought to arouse some interest for now.

THE DECIPHERMENT OF THE ALPHABET
AND THE TAROT
1999 by LANCE CARLYLE CARTER
Epigraphers or epigraphists, who study epigraphs or ancient inscriptions, practice the methods of decipherment. The science of epigraphy made possible the decipherment of the Egyptian hieroglyphs, cuneiform writing, the alphabet and the tarot.
ARCHEO - ASTRONOMY AND THE ALPHABET
In my quest to decipher the Tarot cards, I deciphered the alphabet. Although the Tarot cards are not inscriptions carved into rock or scratched into bone, they are pictorial inscriptions and may be deciphered using the methods of epigraphic decipherment. Many researchers into the subject of the Tarot have suspected a connection between the ancient alphabet and the Tarot cards, but the actual correspondence between specific cards and letters of the alphabet has long been debated. It is the connection between the Tarot cards and the alphabet that led me to a satisfactory decipherment of the pictures on the cards, and of the order of the cards in the Major Arcana.
My research revealed that the Tarot cards were actually pictures of constellations that the ancient alphabet letters were also based upon. The story of the Tarot goes back thousands of years, although the cards themselves were based upon constellational figures that were popular in medieval times. My search for the origin of the cards revealed much more about the history of the alphabet than anyone had suspected.
I learned about epigraphic decipherment from Dr. Hugh Moran who was the author of The Alphabet And The Ancient Calendar Signs. Dr. Moran patiently taught me the techniques of decipherment and reviewed my research into the ancient alphabet in the mid seventies.
The thesis of his research on the alphabet was that the Hebrew alphabet was related to the Chinese lunar calendar. Without his pioneering effort into solving the riddle of the alphabet, my work may have never come about. Dr. Moran was in his eighties when I was in college, and he let me visit him at his home. He helped me with my college research and also taught me much about history. Dr. Moran was my mentor. Although our conclusions about the ancient alphabet are not in complete agreement, I believe that our findings are not contradictory, because we were both describing various parts of the ancient astronomical systems. This is a big subject and has many complexities, but the decipherment presented here will solve some of the world's ancient mysteries regarding the alphabet and other calendar systems, etc.
The tedious research I undertook required me to check out every possibility. This involved making hundreds of epigraphic drawings and numerous etymological studies. After a year, the threads of research began to take shape into a fabric of a worldwide system of astronomy, writing, religion, logic and communication.
The ancient Chinese, Mayans, Phoenicians, Hebrews and others based their calendars and writing upon a set of constellations that are pictured in the Tarot cards. My excitement grew as each new detail began to fit into the great puzzle. The unity of the ancient astronomical systems is amazing, and can only be because of cross-cultural relations thousands of years ago. The epigraphic drawings presented here show how the ancient astronomical symbols were derived directly from constellations. The beauty of the decipherment of the ancient calendar symbols and the alphabet is something to wonder at.
Some of the world's most ancient writing has been discovered at Anyang in the Honan province of China. Inscriptions found there were etched onto the famous Oracle Bones and tortoise shells that were used by ancient Chinese for divination of the future. Primitive forms of Chinese astronomical symbols were apparently scratched upon the bones or shells and then the bone or shell was heated over a fire. The bone or shell would eventually crack or break, and those ancient fortune-tellers would then try to interpret the remaining fragments.
Among those ancient symbols used were included the Chinese ten stems and twelve branches, which are ancient astronomical symbols. The ten stems referred to ten polar constellations, and the twelve branches referred to the twelve zodiac constellations. According to my findings, these twenty-two constellational symbols are the basis of the ancient Phoenician alphabet and also the Major Arcana cards of the Tarot.
The ancient Chinese astronomers developed their system of constellational symbols in such a manner so that the symbols could be used for astronomical and astrological purposes as well as for their calendar and possibly even for celestial navigation. In time, a multitude of symbols were developed by the early Chinese and incorporated into their system of astronomical symbols.
The epigraphic drawings in this volume show how the Chinese developed their calendar symbols in order to picture certain constellations. In time their system of symbols was spread around the world, probably by sea-going merchants or boat people. The tables and diagrams in this volume show how the Phoenician alphabet is based upon the same constellations used by the Chinese in their astronomical ten stems and twelve branches. The Mayan calendar was also directly influenced by the Chinese ten stems and twelve branches, but with a few revisions, as we shall find out. Later the Hebrew alphabet was adapted from the Phoenician alphabet, but the Hebrew alphabet letters still retained the names of the constellations that they were based upon, i.e. the Chinese ten stems and twelve branches. In time most of the world's alphabets came to be based upon the Phoenician alphabet.
Most experts on the subject of the alphabet trace the letters back to the early Phoenician alphabet, but confusion arises when they try to determine the origin of those original Phoenician letters. There were various alphabet scripts in the Sinai Peninsula which borders on Egypt and Israel, so many authorities have concluded that the Sinaitic alphabet letters were directly derived from Egyptian hieroglyphs. There does appear to be some connection between Egyptian Hieroglyphs and the Sinaitic scripts, but it is my opinion that the Phoenician alphabet was based upon the constellations of the Chinese ten stems and twelve branches, but that the form of the Phoenician letters were patterned after the Sinaitic scripts. This means that the Phoenician alphabet retained its connection with the stars, but was adapted to the local form of writing. That would allow the Phoenicians to use their alphabetical symbols for their calendar as well as for writing and counting, for each letter was assigned a number.
It is common knowledge that the Hebrew, Greek and Roman alphabets were developed from the Phoenician alphabet, and throughout the centuries various cultures have adapted the alphabet to their own languages. Many books chronicle the evolution of the alphabet, but they all go back to the Phoenician alphabet as the beginning.
The correspondence between the alphabet and the Tarot cards has been the subject of speculation by many authors on the subject of the Tarot. The most obvious similarity that is observed is that there are twenty-two letters of the ancient Phoenician alphabet and there are twenty-two cards of the Major Arcana of the Tarot. There have been developed elaborate systems of correspondence between the alphabet and the Tarot, but there is some disagreement about the actual order of the cards and their correspondence to specific alphabetic letters. Some decks place the Magician card of the Major Arcana at the beginning and the Fool card at the end, while other decks place the Fool in the beginning. There is also speculation about the order of the Strength card and the Temperance card as well as the order of the Star, the Sun, and the Moon cards. All of these questions are resolved in this investigation.
Some authors writing about the Tarot tell us that their order and interpretation of the cards was passed down to them from some mystery school or by divine insight. The facts to be presented here will separate the grain from the chaff in regard to the correct correspondence the alphabet has with the Tarot cards by using the methods of epigraphic decipherment.
Some Tarot books contain correspondences between the Major Arcana of the Tarot and the alphabet, as well as correspondences to gems, colors, and astrological signs as well as a multitude of symbols. The Cabalistic and magical traditions also find their way into the Tarot symbolism, and though some authors have surmised correctly about these ideas, most of the written material is at best misleading. Some writers have suggested that the truth about the Tarot has been veiled or hidden intentionally by the secret mystery schools so as to keep the common person ignorant of the truth. It is time that the serious investigators of the Tarot have some hard facts to think about and use.

Of course, in an investigation such as this the facts revealed are just the tip of the iceberg so to speak. This work should be used as a stepping stone for researchers who can take up this study and find even more information about the Tarot and the ancient calendars and alphabets. I have only begun to investigate some of the important ideas that the Tarot contains. The connection between the ancient religions and the Tarot should be examined thoroughly. The ancient methods of navigation by the stars can also be related to the Tarot, because the Tarot cards represent constellations, which can be used for navigation. Experts in a multitude of disciplines should investigate the Tarot in order that the whole picture is revealed.
PICTURES ON THE TAROT CARDS
Let us investigate the actual pictures on the cards of the Major Arcana. It has been suggested by various authors that the pictures on the tarot cards were derived from Egyptian, Greek, or Roman Mythology, as well as Christian and Hebrew history. Throughout the ages one artist after another has pictured the tarot figures according to their particular interpretation of the tarot legends. My first task was to identify the pictures on the tarot cards, and from what culture or civilization the tarot drawings were derived from. Some of the Major Arcana cards have definite resemblance to characters from Greek and Roman mythology, while others appear to have Christian or Egyptian characteristics.
The Magician has the appearance of Hermes or Apollo from the Greek tradition, while the Papess or Female Pope appears to have a definite Christian look, and could portray the mythical Pope Joan of medieval legend.
The Empress and Emperor are clearly from Greek and Roman mythology and picture the Empress Cassiopeia and the Emperor Cepheus, which still appear upon our modern star maps as the King Cepheus and Queen Cassiopeia.
The Pope card appears to be the Pope Sylvester who was pictured over the constellation of Bootes in medieval Christian star maps. The Christian star map makers sought to replace the ancient pagan gods with Christian heroes, but because the Pope objected to being portrayed in a deck of cards, the artists thereafter replaced the Hierophant with the Pope card.
The Lovers appear to picture Perseus and Andromeda of the Greco-Roman star maps. The Chariot card appears to picture the constellation Auriga, the Charioteer of the Greco-Roman star maps.
The Strength card pictures Hercules who overcame a great lion in his youth, and later defeated the Nemion Lion. The Hermit card pictures the Christian Saint Benedict over the constellation of Ophichius, which was known as the Serpent Holder in Greek star maps.
The Wheel of Fortune pictures the Italian goddess Fortuna spinning the wheel of northern polar constellations. The Justice card pictures Astra, the Greek goddess of Justice, who holds the scales of Justice, which is seen in the sky as the constellation of Libra, the scales.
The Hanged Man pictures Jesus on the Northern Cross, which was seen as Cygnus the Swan in the Greek star maps. The Death Card pictures the Grim Reaper of Death over the constellation of Sagittarius.
The Temperance card pictures the Archangel Michael over the stars of Draco the Dragon, possibly because the Archangel Michael threw the Dragon out of heaven in the biblical tradition.
The Devil card pictures Pan over the stars of Capricorn, the fish-goat. The Tower card pictures the string of stars called Serpens Caput in the form of a tower, with the constellations Bootes and Ophiuchus appearing to be falling from the tower. Above the tower is the radiant crown of Corona Borealis.
The Star card pictures Isis or her attendant Anabuts from the Egyptian tradition, and in the background are the stars of Canis Major with the dog star Sirius. In the background of the Star card the dove Columba is seen.
The Sun card pictures Phaethon, the son of Helios, the Sun God from Greek Mythology, who rode his father's sun chariot, but lost control of the horses. The Moon card pictures the crab of Cancer with the moon above in the sky between the Gates of Mem.
The Judgement card is a portrayal of Delphinus as a coffin, as rendered by medieval Christian star map makers. In the background is the Archangel Gabriel blowing a trumpet.
The World card pictures Demeter over the stars of Virgo the Virgin. The Fool is pictured as a shepherd over the stars of Bootes the Herdsman. The dog or dogs with the Fool are called Canis Venetici.
The tarot card pictures were derived from several traditions, which were fully developed by the time the cards were first drawn, but there are clues that give us some indication of the approximate date that the first cards were drawn.
Some schools of thought maintain that the tarot cards were developed in ancient Egypt, possibly in Alexandria. Others say the Gypsies brought them to Europe or that they were invented in Italy. Although not all of the facts are clear, there are some significant clues. For many centuries authors have written books and articles about the Tarot cards, but most of the material has been commentary on the work of pervious authors or else it was pure speculation. The popular publications about the Tarot cards are often a simplification of earlier writings or else simply nonsense.
Although there is some reasonable information concerning the Tarot cards in publication, the contradictions and confusion concerning the Tarot cards has increased with each new book on the subject. Now there are dozens of decks that have some connection to the Tarot deck, but the newer decks are anything but traditional. Too many people give up the study of the Tarot simply because of all of the conflicting opinions about the cards Tarot must wade through each system of interpretation and eventually make up his own mind about the cards or else accept one system over another.
One aim of this study is to reveal the origin of the Tarot cards, and to present the reader with a logical system of interpretation. This author has spent years in research into the actual origins of the Tarot cards, and will herein present the reader with the first true decipherment of the alphabet and the Tarot.

This is interesting:

Serpent ----> head and tail <-------- 22 degree Scorpio - 16 degree Capricorn = 54 degrees

54---> 5+4 = 9

Tet --- 9th letter --- Hebrew ---- a serpent

27 ----> the Nakshatras (houses of God Soma or Moon God) in Hindu zodiacal cyrcle, 28th Nakshatra is ABIJIT (The VICTORIOUS - falls on about the16th degree of Capricorn; Its mean goal is Kama, too, as the beginning of a cycle)

````````````````````````````````````````````````````

9x6=54, the same as the ANV of the word MAYAN which is 54! Coincidence or encoded clue?

````````````````````````````````````````````````````

The value of "9" is encoded within the structure of the alphabet. The key to unlocking it is, essentially, by folding the alphabet directly in half.

The following example shows how the value of 9 is encoded within the structure of the alphabet. It is revealed by folding the alphabet in half. Envision the alphabet written out along a ribbon. Now fold the ribbon in half, directly between the two middle letters, M and N. If you were to hold the folded ribbon up to a light you would see the 26 letters now form 13 pairs of letters. The first pair is A/Z. The second pair is B/Y, and so on all the way to the end where you have M/N.

Now combine the Alpha-Numeric Value (ANV) of the first letter "A" with the ANV of the last letter "Z", and add them together. Do the same with each pair of letters. Thus, [A]1+ [Z] 26 = 27. Reduced, 2+7=9. The same with B added to Y, and C added to X, and so on.

RESULTING PATTERN (each instance reduced to single digit of 9):

A+Z=27=9, B+Y=27=9, C+X=27=9, D+W=27=9, E+V=27=9, F+U=27=9, G+T=27=9, H+S=27=9, I+R=27=9, J+Q=27=9, K+P=27=9, L+O=27=9, M+N=27=9

Some interesting notes at this point:

1) Note that the alphanumeric value of the word "CODE" is 27.

2) The number 27 is the number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet (when the 5 vowels are added to the 22 consonants). This may be a symbolic link between the Hebrew alphabet and the Roman/English alphabet, which might lend some justification to the idea of using the Roman/English alphabet as a tool of gematria.

3) This "folding" process results in 13 pairs of letters. The number 13 is important to the whole Mayan calendar system. Interestingly and synchronistically, the reduced ANV of the word THIRTEEN is 9! Moreover, the ANV of TWENTY SIX is 6. Then 9x6=54, the same as the ANV of the word MAYAN which is 54! Coincidence or encoded clue?

4) 13 x 27 = 351, the mirror version of the ANV of the name of the Aztec/Toltec god, QUETZALCOATL, the ANV of which equals 153. Also the sum of the alphanumeric values of the letters in the english alphabet is 351. Notice both 351 and 153 reduce to 9 when the digits are cross added.

5) The ANV of KUKULCAN (the Mayan name for the same god) is 94 which reduces to 13 at the first level of reduction.
