The Quaternary and the Court Card Matrix


One card in the Quaternary (1/9) equals two cards in an unbifurcated number line (1 or 9), equals four cards the Majors (Positive 1, Negative 1, Positive 9, Negative 9), equals eight cards in the Minors (Analytical Positive 1, Synthetical Positive 1, Analytical Negative 1, Synthetical Negative 1, Analytical Positive 9, Synthetical Positive 9, Analytical Negative 9, Synthetical Negative 9) equals a spectrum of possibilities...

The Numerical Tarot is all about Balance, Symmetry, Contrast and Consistency. So, The Numerical Tarot can't help but see all numbers from each part of the deck as related. In this mandala, the four cards of the Quaternary are represented by the nine conjoined dots in the center (i.e. 1/9, 2/8, 3/7 and 4/6). They in turn radiate out to create a single number line at the first fork in the trees. This single number line is then bifurcated into the positive and negative number lines of the Major Trumps. Those numbers are then bifurcated again to create the four number lines of the Minor Suits. The result is a spectrum of possibilities at the top of each tree!
