Tarot is an exploration of the Human Condition.
And what, might you ask, is “the human condition”?
The human condition is a term used for the entire spectrum of human experience:
As always, we see the base of SEVEN. The same as we do with the sound and color spectrums.
There are multiple octaves of each of these making an infinite amount of human experience, but
they all fall within the base categories.
Let’s take a couple examples:
Birth/Death: Birth of a child, birth of business, birth of pet, birth of a lifestyle, idea,
emotion, opinion… and vice-versa, the death of each too.
1. Love/Hate: Romantic love, familial love, pet love, food love, movie love… and the vice-
versa, hate of these things.While the love concept applies well to many things, the octave and intensity is dramatically different! As a parent, the love I have for my son is limitless and virtually unconditional. While romantic love is far more emotionally ecstatic, it has limitations. Love or not… dishonesty, infidelity and abuse are usually universal deal breakers (or should be!). When a child dies, your life is somewhat unrepairable. When your pet dies, you make a backyard grave, mourn and adopt a new one! The tarot are archetypal images that express the spectrum of human experiences and its octaves. Each card symbolizes specific experiences and qualities within the human experience and can combine with the others to provide insights and details that are specific and varied. When an Intuitive’s focus and energy is channeled into drawing and reading the cards, predictions, meanings and possibilities become visible.
Tarot is divided into two main categories, the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana. The major
are the first 22 cards (the trumps) and the minor are the remaining 56.
The trump cards are like a story: The Fool (card and “key” zero) represents a person venturing out into the world to seek his fortune and destiny. Blissfully ignorant to life and the world, The Fool, travels through the human experience, meeting influential people and having profound experiences along the way that add up and create the drama of his life.
Many of the Major - Arcana cards represent the characters, like family, teachers, guides, partners, etc. that he will interact with. Others represent the mind and events such as birth, death, love, family etc. and conscious/subconscious/intellect/emotion…
The Minor Arcana are the suits: Wands, Cups, Swords and Pentacles. The suits encompass the octaves of the human experience. For example, while The Lovers card represents Love if it is combined with the Queen of Cups it may indeed imply a romantic, female partner—queen symbolizing a woman and cups representing emotion. But combined with the Page of Pentacles changes its meaning. Now it may represent the love of a material idea or work that benefits others. The combinations are virtually infinite. You certainly don’t need to be a Tarot expert to benefit from the refined level of insight they add to your Spiritual Triangle analysis. As always, Knowledge is Power, so if you do want more, please check out the Tarot workbook. Otherwise, enhance your Spiritual Triangle blueprint analysis with these basics by understanding that Tarot is a symbolic exploration of the Human Experience.
The correspondences provided throughout your ST analysis are done so quite simply: Each of the 78 cards is numbered and match the numerological vibrations in your specific reading.
The tarot correspondences provide a closer, more symbolic and conceptual detail to your
Tarot has been an integrated element to Kabbalah’s Tree of Life since it began. The whole
reason Tarot was invented was so Kabbalists could share, use and discuss The Tree without
being persecuted by the Spanish inquisition!
When the religious gestapo would come around, looking for reasons to arrest, burn, kill and do
the gestapo thing, Kabbalists would just say, “Who us? We’re just playing cards! A harmless
kids’ game we came up with to pass the time.”
Have you ever noticed that modern playing cards match Tarot exactly?! It ain’t because Tarot
was mimicked from playing cards, it’s the other way around!
Your Google and Wikipedia, i.e. conventional, info on it will say that playing cards were
invented by the Chinese way before, and they were. But modern playing cards—the deck of
52—came about in12th-14 th century, same as Tarot.
