First in order of appearance are the four tarot Aces, meaning the force of the Spirit acting in, and binding together the four scales of each element and answering to the Dominion of the Letters of the Name in the Kether of each.

The meanings of Four Deuces symbolize the Powers of the King and Queen tarot cards: first uniting and initiating the Force, but before the Prince and Princess are thoroughly brought into action. Therefore do tarot cards generally mean the initiation and fecundation of a thing.

Perfection, realization, completion, making a matter settled and fixed.
The Fives tarot cards meanings: opposition, strife and struggle; war, obstacle to the thing in hand. Ultimate success or failure is otherwise shown.
The Sixes general meanings: Definite accomplishment and carrying out of a matter.

Generally the four Eights tarot card meanings show solitary success; i.e., success in the matter for the time being, but not leading to much result apart from the thing itself.
The meanings of the four Nines show very great fundamental force. Executive power, because they rest on a firm base, powerful for good or evil.
