Dolphin is card number 34 which brings us to the numerology number of 7. The Number Seven lends objectivity and seeks to improve. The Number Seven is a Law unto itself and is the testing energy for all planes and dimensions of life. There is no acceptance of established or formatted preconceived, ideas, plans, and information or for that matter accepted facts. This is the number of the age-old question "Why?” and seeks discovery at each and every possible opportunity. This is the number of the eternal student/teacher relationships.
Seven is the number of the Universe - The Explorer... Colours: Old Rose, Purple, Magenta, Brick and Pearl.
Seven is the three of the heavens (soul) combined with the four (body) of the earth; being the first number containing both the spiritual and the temporal. In looking over the list of meanings it doesn't take long to figure out why the seven has become significant in metaphysical, religious and other spiritual doctrines...seven represents the virginity of the "Great Mother".
The seventh ray of the sun is the path by which the human beings pass from this world to the next. Seven days is the period for fasting and penitence. The seventh power of any number, both square and a cube and thus was given great importance.
Seven is a mystic number traditionally associated with Venus and more recently with Neptune. It is the number of feelings and of instincts - of the Group Mind, of Love, whether that strange, indescribable but pervasive feeling of love is towards another person, a pet, oneself or one's God. 'Love' embodies tremendous sexual energy, the emotions of which may be directed in various ways.
