The number Ten in itself shows a transition from the units to the double numbers and therefore denotes a change and a manifesting of vibrations and conditions upon another and a different plane, of spirituality, of mentality or thought, and of physical action or material expression. Whereas the number One came under the influence of Mercury, the ruler of the brain and the mind, the number Ten comes under the influence of the planet Uranus which is the octave expression of Mercury and governs the twin factors of Inspiration and Genius. Mercury rules the literary processes of thought, Uranus rules the scientific and, in its influence over the life and destiny of the individual, will bring sudden and unexpected changes of thought and action and of Fortune, sometimes for good and sometimes for ill, sometimes as a result of the volitional thought and action of the individual, at other times as a direct result of Fate, or circumstance.

The Divinatory or Tarot Signification: Arcanum X The Wheel - denotes Changes of Fortune
Tarot Arcanum X the Sphinx:
Cause and effect, the moral law, periodicity, revolution, circulation.
The Sphinx, or Wheel of Fortune - The Rota or Wheel on which is seated the Sphinx upholding the sword. Around the wheel are the letters of the law as defined in the Tarot, and the four fixed signs of the Zodiac, the Man, Lion, Bull and Eagle. It represents the law of correlated succession.
In the Spiritual world - the Law of Karma; spiritual cause and effect; spiritual selection.
In the intellectual world - the rational faculty; induction and deduction; connectedness; perception of relativity and time intervals, progression.
In the Psychic world - the regulation of the emotions and passions and the application of the psychic forces by the moral law. Regime, training, orderliness.
In the Physical world - the law of action and reaction; good and bad fortune; the cyclic law of events; periodicity; rise and fall; revolution; circulation.
NOTE: This symbol is that of the aspirant to Occult Initiation. The symbols of the Man, Bull, Lion and Eagle or Serpent denotes the four maxims: Know, Will, Dare, Keep Silent, which are imposed on all neophytes. These are the keys to the attainment of power.
The Number 10 is the number of Destiny. It shows changes which can be either good or bad; a sudden raising to a high position or equally as suddenly a loss of position and a personal downfall, dependent in many ways upon the previous action of the person concerned.
The number Ten (planetary influence, Uranus) shows that somewhat erratic tendencies are denoted. Whilst there will be an undoubted brilliance of thought and inspiration, a capacity for making quick and constructive decisions in an emergency, and for carrying these decisions into action without loss of time, under ordinary circumstances when nothing of very great importance is manifesting, there will be a difficulty in exercising adaptability to such conditions and hence there will be a making of impulsive and unwise decisions regarding changes and in connection with prevailing associations. As a result sudden upsets and disputes will occur, there will be a disturbing of working or business interests and a danger of the loss of job or position, whilst personal ties and associations can be strained, sometimes to actual breaking point. In many respects you will be a "law unto yourself" and will go your own way irrespective of the desires or commands of others; in fact any attempt on the part of people to force you to follow their way will only make you go in the opposite direction.
The number Eleven operates through the higher emotional side of nature, showing the expression of universal compassion and love as distinct from the personal and selfish form of love which is often based upon passion. It is a feminine and a magnetic number and has a great deal to do with psychic force as well as spiritual power and fortitude. It comes under the domination of the planet Neptune and gives the capacity to use the power of suggestion so as to influence other people and help them in the overcoming of physical, moral and spiritual weakness.

The Number 11 is the number of transformation which can again be from bad to good or from good to bad according to the personal inclinations and actions.
The number Eleven (planetary influence, Neptune) will intensify your insight into affairs and enable you to gauge the outcome of a given line of action in an almost uncanny manner. It shows that you will be able, sometimes without hardly being aware of it, to influence other people by your mental and oral suggestions and in so doing will get them to react and do things that are in accord with your own desires. Discretion will, however, be required in the using of this power of suggestion, for otherwise, should you be tempted to influence other people to do things to suit a selfish end you could bring a tantalising and unpleasant future reaction. You will have much latent psychic ability, which you can express as a result of proper development, for the planet gives a capacity for clairvoyance, sometimes for trance mediumship, and also for psychometry.
The number Twelve is also an emotional number giving a superb understanding of the depths of human emotion and suffering. As a result of this understanding it gives the capacity to make sacrifices for others and to "turn the other cheek" when abused or ill-treated. Despite all the vicissitudes of life there will be a warmness of expression towards other people and a maintaining of a sense of humour. Responding to the vibration of the Zodiacal sign of Pisces it arouses the desire to heal the sick. It is the number of Nursing and Administration.

The Number 12 is the number of the Philosopher's Stone, the number of Transmutation. It is associated with the process of turning baser metals into gold or transmuting selfish principles of character into those of an unselfish nature.
The number Twelve (Zodiacal influence, the sign Pisces) shows that you are idealistic and peaceably inclined. You can, however, be rather sensitive and there will be extremes of temperament and ability. Sometimes you will be extremely cheerful and optimistic and when you express this side of your nature, together with a degree of sympathy and understanding for others who are in trouble or difficulty, you will create considerable popularity and will make a great deal of progress. On the other hand you can give way to extreme sensitiveness and allow yourself to feel hurt at the careless or thoughtless speech or actions of others and will try to cover this up by expressing an apparent air of indifference which will be rather puzzling to those around you, who will not be aware of having done anything to warrant being ignored. When you permit anything of this nature you will lose some of your popularity and certain of your friends, and misunderstandings will occur in a way you do not at all desire.
