The Esoteric Tarot – Ancient Sources rediscovered in Hermeticism and Cabala

By Ronald Decker. 330 Pages | First Quest edition 2013 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 9780835609081.

From the Introduction:

No explanation is known to have accompanied the Original Tarot. This book presents an interpretation, that will surprise most Tarotists (those, who are esoterists) and most academics (those, who are critics of the esoterists). My theory covers the evolution of the Tarot, the connotations of its symbols, the symbol’s sources, and their transmission to the proper places at the proper times. In truly ancient references, I have found forgotten patterns, that are definitely congruent with the Tarot. I will treat not merely isolated motifs, but symbolic systems. I hope to establish the meanings of the Tarot as it was understood by its inventor(s). Granted, my arguments require deductions and interferences. This is currently necessary, because of the scarcity of hard evidence. I welcome improvements to my theory. It offers many points from which further research can proceed. The following definition is typical of standard dictionairies: Tarot (TAR-o, ta-RO) noun [French < Middle French < Old Italian tarocco (plural: tarocchi)] a set of cards depicting certain allegories and providing a deck for oracles and games.

From Chapter 1 – ‘Thoth, Hermes and Hieroglyphs’ (p.28):

” The title Trismegistus (thrice greatest) presumably derived from the Egyptian practice of addressing the Gods as ‘great’, ‘twice-great’, etc. Hermes Trismegistus could still be considered a God, but if so, he was supposed to have begun as a man, one who attained enlightenment and ascended as divinity. More often, he was regarded as a sage, presumed to have lived in remote antiquity and to have inherited the wisdom of Thoth. Some authors tried to simplify the Hermetic traditions by creating a genealogy: Thoth was the father of Agathodemon, who was the father of Hermes Trismegistus, who was the father of Tat. ‘Tat’ is a variation of ‘Tot’, a variation of Thoth. “

From Chapter 7 –  ‘The Fools’s Pilgrimage’ (p. 65):

” The human being is a fool. Shakespeare was right when he said: ‘What fools we mortals be!’ The first card of the greater Arcana, the Fool, pictures man as a carefree youth, striding gaily forth in such a position, that his next step may send him over the edge of the cliff. As noted in connection with the Eleventh Path, we are this fool ourselves, divine and immortal souls ready to descend into manifest existence. It is also we, ourselves, having descended from Kether to Malkuth, now ascending from earth to the heavens. Of all the Arcana, the fool manifests the greatest freedom. “

By Paul Quinn.

344 Pages | First Quest Edition 2009 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 9780835608794.

This book is not just theory, it comes from someone who knows. . . .

You don’t need to have psychic abilities to read Tarot cards effectively. But you do need to be curious – curious about who you are and about the opportunities for growth in your daily life. Paul Quinn tranforms the Tarot from fortune-telling into the ultimate self-help tool for intuitive guidance, empowerment, and well-being. Discover how you can use the Tarot as a vibrant way to access inner Wisdom and to gain meaningful, practical insights into your relationships, career, family and personal development.

Quinn explains how the Tarot can offer Soul-directed advice to help you make wiser choices, and he shows how even the cards, that look most troubling can convey support. Newcomers and experts alike will value his thought-provoking examples and entertaining anecdotes, that explain complexities without reducing the cards’ mystical power. Quinn’s unique view opens the Tarot as a lifelong aid to enhancing awareness, self-knowledge and joy – right here, right now.

From the Epilogue (p. 331):

” The Journey Begins . . .

To thee no star be dark
Both heaven and earth
Friend thee for ever.
– William Shakespeare

[…]

Part of the practical beauty of the Tarot, is that it is a tool you can use forever, whenever you feel the need to understand yourself or situations in more objective, symbolic ways. But the word ‘Life’ in the title of this work, is not just about duration. It’s about the joy of using the cards to discover the spiritual opportunities in everyday and grow in compassion for the seventy-eight courageous, wise, wounded Tarot characters in yourself and in everyone. In seeing ourselves with more kindness and with a greater sense of creative potential, we cannot help, but view the world with the same generosity. “

The Royal Road – A Manual of Kabalistic Meditations on the Tarot

By Stephan A. Hoeller

119 Pages | First edition 1975, third printing 1988 | Softcover | Quest Books, USA | ISBN: 0835604659.

Integrating the two diciplines to heighten the experience of meditation.

Those, who are into Tarot and those, who are interested or involved in meditation will be attracted by this new book by the director of the Sophia Gnostic Center of Los Angeles. Designed to lead the reader easily into a meditative state, it includes 22 illustrations of the Major Arcana each juxtaposed with an appropriate meditation.

As the reader relates the cards to the paths that lead upward on the Kabalistic Tree of Life, heightened spiritual consiousness can result. The author has addressed The Royal Road to the general reader interested in the values in both the Tarot deck and in the Kabalistic interpretation of the Hebrew Scriptures.

From Chapter 2: ‘Tarot and Kabalah (p.13):

” Can the Tarot predict the future? Perhaps! The true answer, however can not be given so simply. If we recognize that, even though unconsciously, we are constantly shaping our future, it then follows that by establishing a magical contact with our unconscious we can learn much about our future and, what is more, we can influence and alter our future, thereby becoming, at least to a degree, masters of our own destiny. Time is a continuum, not a division, and its mysteries are often pierced when we recognize the proper significance of material clues to spiritual processes. Tarot divination is merely one particular application of these principles to the concerns of daily living. “
