The Major Arcana of the Tarot as a Map for Spiritual Growth

The tarot was my first love among spiritual practices, and has been my guide and friend for many years. More than a divination tool, I see it as a map of the spiritual landscape we all share.

I have always been fascinated by the connections that have been made between tarot and qabalah, but the systems that have been proposed by various occultists have left me unsatisfied. Instead, I have my own idiosyncratic system for relating the major arcana and the Tree of Life. The articles presented here on the major arcana cards explore this system of symbolism, as well as the more convention meanings.

I don't use fancy esoteric terminology in these articles, and no knowledge of qabalah is needed to appreciate them. I hope you enjoy this personal perspective on the cards as spiritual guides.
