Chapter Understanding The Major Mentors

When we Study the Major Arcana, we find that there is an intimate relationship between the 22 cards and the Cabala or Tree of Life, as well as theTetragrarnmaton, as covered in the previous chapter. The subject is too complex for me to give you more than a hint of the beauty and profundity that exists here. Those of you with a background in the Cabala will be better able to appreciate this esoteric relationship, but it is not necessary to be familiar with the Cabalistic lore to work with the...

Chapter How To Read The Cards

Esoteric Circles

Every day of our lives, our minds receive thousands of bits of information and impressions, all of which are stored away in mental cubbyholes, some for future use, some to be forgotten forever.
