“…the Alphabet of Thoth can be dimly traced in the modern Tarot which can be had at almost every bookseller in Paris. As for it being understood or utilized, the many fortune-tellers in Paris, who make a professional living by it, are sad specimens of failures of attempts at reading, let alone correctly interpreting the symbolism of the Tarot without a preliminary philosophical study of the Science.” – Helena Petrovna Blavatsky

“A wise man’s question contains half the answer.” These words of wisdom are attributed to Solomon Ibn Gabirol ben Judah, an 11th-century Andalusian poet and Jewish philosopher, and he simply nailed the “question of the right question”.
Generally people are expecting to hear from a Tarot reader exactly what they are suspect. For instance, if a wife suspects that her husband is cheating on her, she expects to hear that from the Tarot reader. Any other answer – interpretation – would mean that the Tarot reader is wrong. Read more…
