Exercise Studying the Major Arcana cards

Now, choose a major arcana card from the deck and go to its information page. Notice how the keywords reinforce each other to create a certain kind of energy or focus. Note also how the actions flesh out the keywords. Read the description, but just glance at the opposing and reinforcing sections for now. You will learn more about these in lesson 15. You can repeat this exercise for as many major arcana cards as you like.

Major and Minor Arcana Cards

A major arcana card represents an energy that is deep, strong, decisive or long-term. When a major arcana card appears in a reading, you have tapped into a powerful energy in some area of your life. The minor arcana cards do not carry the same weight, but they are still important. They chart the ups and downs of daily life and register changes in

Bit of Common Sense Please

Tarot cards, whether traditional or modern, are not toys. Though we hope that you will find their use as a tool for Storytelling exciting and inspirational, the Tarot traditionally functions as a tool toward self-discovery. Many accounts credit Tarot readings with insights beyond those of normal perceptions others say the cards simply allow you to access those parts of the subconscious that we miss in our daily lives. Whatever the truth may be (assuming there is only one truth), we do not recommend using a game deck for real-life concerns, nor do we condone the use of tools by those who don't know what they're doing with them.

What is the History of this Course

My experience with the cards is in doing readings for myself, friends, relatives and acquaintances probably the kind of tarot you are interested in. The tarot cards are not difficult to learn, but there is always more to them that can be learned. They are deceptively simple, but surprisingly rich.

How Does This Course Work

Learning the Tarot is a self-paced series of 19 lessons that begin with the basics and then move gradually into more detailed aspects of the tarot. These lessons are geared toward beginners, but experienced tarot users will find some useful ideas and techniques as well. For each lesson there are some exercises that reinforce the ideas presented. The Cards section contains information about each of the tarot cards. You can refer to this section as you go through the lessons and later as you continue your practice. These are the main features of the course, but there are many other pages to explore here as well.

Ritual Work And Divination

Once the student understands the basic Qabalistic principles behind the Tarot and has studied the symbolism of each card, he or she is ready to begin using the cards in the techniques of meditation, divination, and ritual magick. Although many people think of divination as the primary use of Tarot cards, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn considers it the least important of Tarot applications. The Tarot's greatest use is as a magickal implement which can bring spiritual attainment to one who studies it. This is because each Tarot card is an astral mirror of the human mind. Meditating on specific cards helps tune the student in to different aspects of his her own mind establishing a communication link between the conscious and the subconscious. In this manner, imbalances in the personality, which may have gone unnoticed but have caused problems, can be brought to the individual's attention by studying a certain card. These problems can be consciously addressed and spiritual progress...

Dream Work With The Tarot

The illustrations of the Tarot cards make them perfect tools for magickal work while in the dream-state. In a way, this is not unlike the technique of scrying except for the fact that while scrying, the conscious mind is manipulating the vision in dreamwork the subconscious mind is the controller.

Introduction to the Tarot

This aura of darkness clings to the tarot cards, even now. Some religions shun the cards, and the scientific establishment condemns them as symbols of unreason, a holdover from an unenlightened past. Let us set aside these shadowy images for now and consider the tarot simply for what it is - a deck of picture cards. The question becomes - what can we do with them Projection is one reason why the tarot cards are valuable. Their intriguing pictures and patterns are effective in tapping the unconscious. This is the personal aspect of the tarot, but the cards also have a collective component. As humans, we all have certain common needs and experiences. The images on the tarot cards capture these universal moments and draw them out consistently. People tend to react to the cards in similar ways because they represent archetypes. Over many centuries, the tarot has evolved into a collection of the most basic patterns of human thought and emotion. Meaning is a truly mysterious quality that...

Application Of The Tarot To Games

When all the players axe seated, the Magian takes the Book of Thoth, i. e. the pack of Tarot cards, and shuffles them, carefully placing their heads alternate ways, but without looking at them, lets them be cut by some player on his left, and then deals the cards to his right, giving as many as he likes, up to seven, to each player and to himself

The Tarot And Secret Tradition

THE Tarot embodies symbolical presentations of universal ideas, behind which lie all the implicits of the human mind, and it is in this sense that they contain secret doctrine, which is the realization by the few of truths imbedded in the consciousness of all, though they have not passed into express recognition by ordinary men. The theory is that this doctrine has always existed--that is to say, has been excogitated in the consciousness of an elect minority that it has been perpetuated in secrecy from one to another and has been recorded in secret literatures, like those of Alchemy and Kabalism that it is contained also in those Instituted Mysteries of which Rosicrucianism offers an example near to our hand in the past, and Craft Masonry a living summary, or general memorial, for those who can interpret its real meaning. Behind the Secret Doctrine it is held that there is an experience or practice by which the Doctrine is justified. It is obvious that in a handbook like the present I...

Introductory And General

We shall see in due course that the history of Tarot cards is largely of a negative kind, and that, when the issues are cleared by the dissipation of reveries and gratuitous speculations expressed in the terms of certitude, there is in fact no history prior to the fourteenth century. The deception and self-deception regarding their origin in Egypt, India or China put a lying spirit into the mouths of the first expositors, and the later occult writers have done little more than reproduce the first false testimony in the good faith of an intelligence unawakened to the issues of research. As it so happens, all expositions have worked within a very narrow range, and owe, comparatively speaking, little to the inventive faculty. One brilliant opportunity has at least been missed, for it has not so far occurred to any one that the Tarot might perhaps have done duty and even originated as a secret symbolical language of the Albigensian sects. I commend this suggestion to the lineal...

Modern Tarot Studies A Nineteenth Century Legacy

Perhaps the inventors of the Tarot cards intended that they should be understood as a graphic summation of the principles of the Qabalah, or perhaps not. At least there is no written evidence to suggest this, and the great Jewish scholar of the Qabalah, Gershom Scholem, is probably correct in his assertion (however deprecatory) that the connection was made by late nineteenth century English and French occultists. One way or the other, the interlock of Tarot and Qabalah is so precise that the systems are mutually explanatory. And actually, the likelihood that the two systems developed independently gives far greater authority to the ideas of both because it points toward their mutual roots in universal Truth.

Exercise Comparing the Arcanas Separately

Remove all the major arcana cards from the deck and place them in a pile. Choose a minor arcana card for each one that has a similar meaning. You can choose on your own, or you can check my suggestions, if you wish. Put the minor arcana cards you have chosen in a separate pile. Shuffle and cut the cards in the major arcana pile, and lay out ten in the Celtic Cross. Find the matching minor arcana cards, and form a second Celtic Cross next to the first. Compare your impressions of these two layouts. Ask yourself these questions

The Language of the Tarot Images in Pattern and Sequence

The Spanish Captain and Bacchus need more ingenuity perhaps, as versions of the Popess and the Pope respectively. But they are indeed almost polar opposites of the original images, and this can tell us something of the function and constitution of the archetypal forces that the Tarot images represent. The actual Tarot cards are like fa ades, each the fa ade of a complex multi-dimensional building containing many storeys and many people living within it. The secret of successsful work with the Tarot, therefore, is to learn how to get behind the fa ade to the deep archetypal structure behind.

The Evolution of the Tarot

Oswald Wirth Tarot

Although the Tarot has come down to us as part of a card game it does not pre-date the ordinary playing card pack. Playing cards were introduced to Europe soon after 1375. The first references appear in 1377 and they are widespread all over Europe by 1400. In 1392 Charles VI of France commissioned the design of a pack of cards but there is no evidence that they were Tarot cards - although they were for some time confused with the mid-fifteenth century Gringonneur Tarot cards in the Biblioth que Nationale. At the time I wrote A Practical Guide to Qabalistic Symbolism in the early 1960s it was very difficult to find a pack of Tarot cards. Even the Marseilles pack was not to be found unless one travelled to the appropriate part of Europe where the game was still played. And A. E. Waite's Key to the Tarot as well as the works of Regardie and Crowley and the others were rarities on the second-hand book market.

When higher guidance is indicated

After the ten cards have been laid out in the Celtic Cross Spread and before you commence the reading, notice the total number of Major Arcana cards in the spread. If there are four or more cards of the Major Arcana, the spread should be picked up immediately and the 22 Major cards extracted from the pack. The spread should then be continued, using the Major Arcana only. (If you have a separate pack used only for Major Aracana readings, this may be used, but remember to have the client shuffle them first.) Four or more Major Arcana cards in a spread indicate that the client needs help from the higher level of the Wisdom of the Tarot, whether he knows it or not. If four or more Major cards turn up before the spread is completed, do not continue, but follow the procedure just discussed. By using the Major Arcana only, the message related will be more profound and of much more benefit to the client. He should be advised that the nature of the cards indicates that there is a more...

Exercise Permanent Pairs in the Major Arcana

Below are two scrambled lists of major arcana cards. Match each card in list 1 with the card in list 2 that you feel is its permanent opposing pair. Give a short meaning for each card that shows the balancing relationship. Try this exercise before looking at the card pages. You can check my suggestions, if you wish. For example Magician (Action) -High Priestess (Nonaction).

The Double Letters Planets Localities Days Gateways Contrasts

Tree Life Planets

The Paths involving Planets must be considered transitional, as are those Paths to which Elements are attributed they always represent the action of one energy on another because they link together two Sephiroth. The same may be said for the Paths of the Zodiac, where the action of one Planet on another occurs through the intermediary of the Sign of the Zodiac. It would be pleasant to be able to suggest that this is not actually as difficult as it appears, but such is not the case. To understand these concepts may require a herculean effort on the part of one who approaches them purely intellectually. The corrective comes for those who project themselves astrally into the Tarot cards. The actual experience of these energies is the only way to make real sense from principles, of necessity, expressed coldly. These are the primary attributions of the Planets to the Tarot cards, though, as is indicated in the illustrations, each Sign of the Zodiac is ruled by a

Tarot Ritual and Divination

A short spread that gives good results, and which has been reproduced in many books on the Tarot, is the so-called Celtic method given by A. E. Waite in his Key to the Tarot. This uses ten cards. However, there are now many books available on the subject of how to read the Tarot cards and every pack that is sold usually has a booklet of instruction that goes with them. There is no point in our duplicating all or any of these we seek only to lay down a few basic principles so that the wood may be seen in spite of the trees. Any diviner likely to be worthy of the name will evolve a personal method based on meditation and experience.

Chapter Beginning Your Apprenticeship

We will begin with the pictures portrayed on the cards. In your search for the proper deck of Tarot cards, you will notice that there are many variation in design. All of them represent the same thing the esoteric symbology that has come down to us from antiquity. It is not the picture itself that should interest you so much as the symbolic philosophy behi nd the picture and how the picture affects you personally. Handling Your Tarot Cards Buying your first pack of Tarot cards is like buying a packet of seeds. You cannot expect flowers to grow overnight you must plant and nourish the seeds and wait patiently for the blooms to appear. Adopt this same attitude with your Tarot cards and you will be pleasandy surprised at how quickly your esoteric seeds will bloom. Remember that the more you study and the more you handle the cards, the quicker you will begin to make spiritual progress. I once knew a student who, upon arriving home from a journey of over a hundred miles, immediately turned...

The Art Of Tarot Divination

We come now to the final and practical part of this division of our subject, being the way to consult and obtain oracles by means of Tarot cards. The modes of operation are rather numerous, and some of them are exceedingly involved. I set aside those last mentioned, because persons who are versed in such questions believe that the way of simplicity is the way of truth. I set aside also the operations which have been republished recently in that section of The Tarot of the Bohemians which is entitled The Divining Tarot it may be recommended at its proper value to readers who wish to go further than the limits of this handbook. I offer in the first place a short process which has been used privately for many years past in England, Scotland and Ireland. I do not think that it has been published-certainly not in connexion with Tarot cards I believe that it will serve all purposes, but I will add by way of variation-in the second place what used to be known in France as the Oracles of...

Working Tarot Talismans

The wealth of symbolism embraced by the Tarot gives a student a wide selection to choose from in working a Tarot talisman ritual. He or she may wish to invoke a zodiacal energy to balance out unfavorable aspects in the birth chart. Planetary and elemental Forces can also be addressed through a ceremony using specific Tarot cards. For instance, if the student feels surrounded by hostile, martial force, the energy of Venus could be invoked to counteract it. If lack of imagination and creative powers is a problem, the productive element of Water could be employed. For almost any secular or spiritual problem the reader may come across, there is a Tarot card that can be invoked to help balance it out. The following list will help describe the various zodiacal, planetary and elemental energies along with some of the Tarot cards that can be used to invoke them in ritual. There is also the possibility of invoking two or more Tarot cards that are related. A person wishing to develop better...

Scrying And Astral Projection

Any of the Tarot cards may be scryed using this method. The reader would be well advised to explore the entire Tree of Life using this technique. Start with the Major Arcana, work your way up the Tree starting with the 32nd Path of the Universe. The Small cards and the Court cards could also be astrally explored, by first invoking the Sephirotic, angelic and elemental energies associated with each particular card.

Personal Tarot Formula

This method can be used in conjunction with the Tarot cards and pertinent astrological information such as the Sun sign and the rising sign. The purpose of this formula is to discover the main obstacle in a person's life which hinges upon the zodiacal aspects at the time of his her birth. Many of the problems in a person's life have a mental cause which is due to a lack of development in some particular area of consciousness. When this area is discovered, the formula given here can be used to evoke the mental qualities corresponding to the underdeveloped section of the mind.

Note On Procedure

What Do You Do with Tarot Cards This question is simple and direct, but I'm afraid the answer is more complex. To avoid getting into areas of philosophy not relevant to our early studies, I will attempt an answer within the context of this Handbook. Tarot cards can be used for

Finishing Up

Before putting the cards away, hold them again for just a moment. Place your deck in one hand with the other hand on top, and close your eyes. Say what you feel you have learned from this reading. Express your gratitude to your Inner Guide for helping you via the tarot cards. Gratitude is a wonderful sentiment. It provides the ideal frame of mind in which to end your reading.

Sixth Lesson

Etteila, whose real name was Aliette, was a hairdresser's apprentice who lived at the time of the French Revolution. Having accidentally found a pack of Tarot cards, he was interested by its eccentricity and began to study it. After thirty years he believed that he had discovered the secret of this Egyptian book. Unfortunately Etteila did not possess any synthetic knowledge, and this ignorance led him to the most erroneous conclusions, whilst many of his intuitive solutions are really marvellous. There is too much inclination to calumniate this ardent worker but we must recognize the real truths contained in his works without laying too much stress upon the ignorant simplicity which disfigures them.

Divination

By studying this book and others like it, the first step in learning to read the cards has already been taken that includes familiarizing oneself with the principles of the Qabalah and the symbolism of all the Tarot cards. This information is progressively absorbed and regularly contemplated until there is a gradual alignment between the operation of the Higher Consciousness and the normal consciousness. The powers of perception regarding inner truths become more acute.

The Cards

To know the meaning of the earls is only the first step in the art of cartomancy to know how to arrange them is still more important. As a fact, the astronomical data should not be lost sight of, and the Tarot ought only to be used to represent the revolutions of the stars, the source of future events but that is the realm of Astrology, and we must confine ourselves to that of telling fortunes by the Tarot cards, and their combinations depend a little upon chance.

The Major Arcana

The standard tarot deck consists of 78 cards divided into two sections, the major and minor arcanas. The word arcana is the plural of arcanum which means profound secret. To the alchemists of the Middle Ages, the arcanum was the secret of nature. The tarot cards are therefore a collection of the secrets that underlie and explain our universe. The major arcana cards are special because they draw out deep and complex reactions. The images on the Rider-Waite deck are evocative because they combine esoteric symbolism with recognizable figures and situations. The symbolism is subtle, but effective. We all travel this road to self-actualization, though our trips more often involve detours, backups and restarts than smooth progression Our specific paths are unique, but our milestones are universal. The 22 major arcana cards are markers on the path of inner development leading from earliest awareness (card 0) to integration and fulfillment (card 21).

Relaxation Ritual

The preceding ritual is a simplified but effective way of consecrating a deck of Tarot cards. The next version is more complex and is intended for the advanced Magician to use. If lack of time is an issue, a student can perform the simpler consecration in order to use his her Tarot cards soon after purchase, and wait for an adequate opportunity to perform the elaborate version.

The Tarot In History

Sporadically, the Baldini emblematic or allegorical pictures have only a shadowy and occasional connexion with Tarot cards, and, whatever their most probable date, that they can have supplied no originating motive, it follows that we are still seeking not only an origin in place and time for the symbols with which we are concerned, but a specific case of their manifestation on the continent of It is certain, however, that they include Tarot Trumps Major, the list of which is as follows Fool, Emperor, Pope, Lovers, Wheel of Fortune, Temperance, Fortitude, justice, Moon, Sun, Chariot, Hermit, Hanged Man, Death, Tower and Last judgment. There are also four Tarot Cards at the Mus e Carrer, Venice, and five others elsewhere, making nine in all. They include two pages or Knaves, three Kings and two Queens, thus illustrating the Minor Arcana. These collections have all been identified with the set produced by Gringonneur, but the ascription was disputed so far back as the year 1848, and it...

The Search For Truth

The Qabalah is a system once traditionally claimed (prior to the work of Scholem) to have been given to Adam by God, to have been the province of a few chosen adepts until it became Hellenized by the Greeks and began to form a sub-current of western civilization. The value of the system is that it divides the Universe into specific categories, allowing for the establishment of correspondences between all cults and religions. The Tarot cards, also, may be equated with the major aspects of most religious systems.

Unity and Duality

If you have your own deck of Rider Pack Tarot cards* remove the Fool, the Magician, the High Priestess, and the World, and place them in the diamond pattern shown overleaf. Look at them for a while. Notice that while both the Fool and the World show dancing, joyful figures, the Magician and the High Priestess are stationary and unmoving in their positions. If you glance through the rest of the Major Arcana you will notice that all the trumps but 0 and 21 are drawn as if staged for a still photograph, rather than say, a motion picture. They present themselves as fixed states of existence.

By Ca BARLET

We may now end this short explanation of the practical distribution of our 22 arcana upon a plane (the reader will do well to imitate it upon a table with a pack of Tarot cards). The student should imagine that our sphere is seen from a considerable distance, vertical upon its axis for instance, at the distance of the earth from the sun, the upper hemisphere only will appear, the other being seen but transparently and it will look like a circle, with the Equator for its circumference. The limits of the 3 superposed zones appear like 3 concentric circles the meridional planes, seen by their dividing lines, only look like 3 equally divided radii, making of the 3 sectors 3 equal axes. This representation, which geometricians name projection upon the plane of the Equator, gives the second figure (the 4 circles of the centre only) to it, for the sake of clearness in the symbols, has been added an equilateral triangle inscribed in the inner circle, with the points posed upon the 3...

Cups He

Positive vibrations of this symbol are affected by all Major Arcana symbols that appear nearby in the spread and should be interpreted accordingly. Although the Nine of Cups denotes a positive YES to your query, the way in which it will be answered can be found in the Major Arcana cards surrounding the Nine of Cups.

Jills Second Reading

Cards 7 and 8 carry extra weight because they are major arcana cards. They spell out an important conflict between Jill and her environment. Jill's point of view is the Lovers. She wants to forge the bonds of love and relationship that were denied her originally. She is also coming to terms with the fact that her parents are becoming lovers literally.

Tarot Pathworking

Tree Life Kabbalah Tarot

Charles Williams was a former Golden Dawn initiate and this scenario is in effect a magical composition of place for work with the Tarot archetypes. In fact the inner room represents the inner planes, and the mobile figures the archetypal forces that are behind every set of Tarot cards in existence.

List Of Exercises

It has been said that the Tarot cards contain the secrets of the universe. It is only through the discovery of your own hidden depths that you may explore the Higher Spiritual Self and begin to learn these secrets. When you allow sensitivity of the soul to open the door, the ancient symbols of the Tarot will reveal their mysteries to you.

Bailing Qlartos

The first question anyone will ask you if you ever let it be known that you are interested in tarot cards is, Can you tell my fortune If you admit that you actually own a deck, then of course the request becomes a demand. For what is the use of owning a deck of tarots if you don't know how to use it Therefore, before embarking on a study of the deeper and darker aspects of tarot cards, you will quite obviously need to know how to use them in the way that the average tarot enthusiast does as fortune-telling devices. tarot cards are nothing more than mirrors in which, if you know consciously aware of, but which the deeper, unconscious part of your mind in some mysterious manner already knows. Before you can begin reading tarot cards, you obviously must first obtain a deck if you don't already have one. Not only must the deck appeal to you, but the card designs must be striking enough to impress themselves upon your imagination sufficiently to transform them into effective deep mind...

Skrying

Skrying, meaning the projection of oneself into an inner vision, is actually very simple. It involves nothing more than sitting quietly in front of a Tarot card (or other stimulus), closing one's eyes and stepping into that card in imagination. The essential principle is that we create day dreams, allowing our minds to flow within the given structure of a Tarot card. Soon most students discover that what they experience could not possibly be of their own making. At very least, most are astonished by the vitality and spontaneity of the images which the Tarot cards evoke.

The Spread

A spread is a preset pattern for laying out the tarot cards. It defines how many cards to use, where each one goes, and what each one means. A spread is a template guiding the placement of the cards so they can shed light on a given topic. It is within this template that the meanings of the cards come together so beautifully.

The High Priestess

Pope Joan was most likely a legend the Visconti Papess was real. In the late thirteenth century an Italian group called the Guglielmites believed that their founder, Guglielma of Bohemia, who died in 1281, would rise again in 1300 and begin a new age in which women would be popes. Jumping ahead they elected a woman named Manfreda Visconti as the first papess. The Church graphically ended this heresy by burning Sister Manfreda in 1300, the year of the expected new age. Some hundred years later the same Visconti family commissioned the first set of Tarot cards as we know them. Among these unnumbered and unnamed trumps appeared a picture of a woman later decks titled 'The Papess'.

Invocation

Tarot cards are like mirrors of the soul, reflecting knowledge and wisdom. To keep their vision crystal clear, you must handle them correctly, so that they are not clouded by indistinct or irrelevant spiritual impressions. This is the reason for breaking the pack. I was once given a purse I had admired, and I used it to carry my Tarot cards, pad and pencil. After doing this two or three times, I realized that I was receiving an impression of insecurity, which would leave as soon as I had broken the pack. I became curious and asked the friend who had given me the bag about this. She explained that once someone had attempted to take the bag from her in a department store, and it was only because she had the strap securely on her shoulder that the would-be purse-snatcher did not succeed. But this experience upset her greatly for a while and she had feelings of insecurity every time she went out with the purse. But eventually these emotions subsided and she had forgotten the incident...

What Is Tarot

These ancient prehistoric representations from which the complete picture of the most diverse kinds of people can be assembled and made accessible to our recognition are the tarot cards. This concept can be referred to as tarot. The tarot comprises seventy-eight tarot cards. Of these, fifty-six cards are known as the Lesser Arcana and twenty-two cards as the Greater Arcana. The initiates of prehistoric times who created the tarot cards were familiar with all these different levels and states of development of the human consciousness. They depicted these levels of consciousness from the first awakening to divine all-consciousness in twenty-two pictures. These are the 'Greater Arcana' of the tarot pack. However far we may peer back into the dark recesses of history, it is impossible to find a period when these images, the Greater Arcana of the tarot cards, were not known. Already in ancient times we find traces of these cards indeed they are the forerunners of all other playing cards....

Setting the Mood

You should have your tarot cards and your question written on a piece of paper. (See lesson 7 for how to write a question.) At first, a full reading will probably take at least thirty to forty minutes. Try to arrange your affairs so you won't be interrupted. With experience, you will be able to shorten this time, if you wish, but it is always better to feel unhurried.

The Illustrated Key To The Tarot

The Illustrated Key To The Tarot

The pathology of the poet says that the undevout astronomer is mad the pathology of the very plain man says that the genius is mad and between these extremes, which stand for ten thousand analogous excesses, the sovereign reason takes the part of a moderator and does what it can. I do not think that there is a pathology of the occult dedications, but about their extravagances no one can question, and it is not less difficult than thankless to act as a moderator regarding them.
