What Does The Number Forty Two Mean?
Group 2: This group of numbers deals with the emotional level of consciousness and is associated with love, feelings, relationships and connections. These numbers are about displays of emotion, expression of feelings and the role of emotions in relation to others. These numbers indicate that you are thinking with your heart rather than your head, and thus reflect your spontaneous responses and your habitual reactions to situations. These numbers are also linked to creativity, romanticism, fantasy and imagination. The negative aspects of this group of numbers (i.e. when these numbers appear reversed) include being overly emotional or completely disengaged and dispassionate, having unrealistic expectations and fantasizing about what could be. There may be repressed emotions, an inability to truly express oneself and a lack of creativity. This group of numbers traditionally represents the west and autumn.
Upright Meanings: choices, hallucinations, lots of options, dreaming, illusion, picking and choosing, opportunities, fantasy, decisions, wishful thinking, multiple possibilities, directionless, procrastination, imagination
The Number Forty Two card represents having lots of options to choose from or multiple possibilities open to you. It can be an indication that you have so many choices or so many things going on at once that you may be overwhelmed or unable to focus properly. You need to limit the amount of things you are taking on to a manageable amount. There is no point in agreeing to do things if you can’t give them the time and attention they deserve. Try to be realistic about what you can commit to. The Number Forty Two can also signify that you may be indulging in wishful thinking, fantasies or living in a dream world. When this minor card appears in a reading, it indicates that you need to make a decision in your life and realistically look at where you are. Take proactive steps to make your situation better rather than fantasising about how you want it to be. Your imagination is a great tool to help you envision your future but it will never happen unless you take action to make it happen.
Reversed Meanings: determination, will-power, clarity, missed opportunities, poor choices, avoiding issues, lack of spiritual growth, sobriety, reality check, opportunities or options, lack of choice, reality, decisiveness, feeling trapped
The Number Forty Two card reversed can indicate that you are finding clarity and getting back to reality after a period of indulging in fantasies or living in a dream world. You may be finally starting to act decisively and to see the correct path for you clearly, having previously felt indecisive or lost. It represents getting a reality check. Alternately, when this card appears reversed in your spread it can indicate that you may have a lack of options, choices or opportunities or you may be feeling restricted or trapped in some way.
