78 cards in a Tarot deck: the significance of this important number

tarot | zoomtarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarotThe Tarot is made up of 78 cards: 22 ‘Trump’ cards – officially known as the Major Arcana, and 56 Minor Arcana cards. The Trump cards include ones people tend to know about – the ‘sensational ones’ such as the lovers, chariot, the hanged man and death – all positive cards in their own right.

The minor arcana is split into four suits – much like our playing cards today. In fact, our card system stems from the Tarot, and I have had fun reading ordinary playing cards for friends when I haven’t had a tarot deck in my bag!

So what do we know of the number 78? Well, in addition to the 78 cards in a Tarot deck, there are a few other important things that are based on 78:

The atomic number of platinum is 78. Platinum is a precious metal that is widely used in jewellery, electronics, and other industries. Its value is incredibly high, and it’s a beautiful metal. The Tarot cards are also beautiful, and very precious to their owners.

In numerology, which is the study of the spiritual significance of numbers, 78 is associated with success, abundance, and material prosperity. For many people who come to me for a reading, they’re hoping to hear these words featured in their near future. Just being around the Tarot can be fruitful – perhaps one reason for this is the 78 cards!

In days gone by, long before streamed music, CDs, cassettes, or trendy 33 inch vinyl, ‘78’ was a record – the way music was played. Music surrounds us, excites us, calms us – just like the Tarot can do!

The United Nations has 78 member states as of 2023. This international organisation aims to promote peace, security, and cooperation among nations. Many of my clients hope that the Tarot will tell them of peace and security in their lives, along with co-operation from friends, family, colleagues and prospective employers.

Although I’m based in London, I’ve been told that in the United States, the Interstate Highway System covers a total of 78,000 miles. This system of highways connects cities and states throughout the country and plays a critical role in transportation and commerce. The Tarot is a tool of connection too. It connects people who may have been out of touch, it brings together thoughts and ideas, and helps people to form plans, strategies and set personal goals. When I’m using the Tarot as a business coaching tool, it helps the business owners to think outside the box and look at ways to improve their commerce and, ultimately, increase profits.

I’m pleased to offer single-card, three-card, and Celtic Cross ten-card readings via email or face-to-face on Zoom.
