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:

1. Divination, either for self reading or for another person*

2. Self guidance

3. Meditation

4. Spiritual development

5. Cabalistic studies.

The apprentice should read the entire Handbook through once; then start at the beginning and pursue all the exercises at his or her own pace. For the more experienced student, there are interesting exercises and theories relating the Tarot to the Cabala, Astrology and Gnothology, or esoteric Numerology.

It is my sincere hope that the reader will spend many happy and constructive hours with this Handbook. It has been prepared so that it may be continually used throughout the course of study for reference and practice.

- Divination may be defined as obtaining knowledge of the unknown or of the future.

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.
