The four cardinal directions of the evolution of Tarot

Tarot 2020

Tarot 2020
Since the mysterious appearance of the first known Tarot deck in the mid-fifteenth century in Northern Italy, we only speculate regarding its original purpose. It was meant to be an entertainment instrument, a deck of cards for game playing, or it was created for divination, respectively a tool for preserving and transmitting esoteric wisdom (knowledge) hidden in plain sight?

The Magian Tarot and Postmodern theory

Stephen E. Flowers The Magian Tarok

Stephen E. Flowers The Magian Tarok
I bought this book a while ago, and although I still didn’t found time to read it throughout, this introductory chapter is fascinating.
I share a small fragment here in hope to open your appetite to buy and read the entire work.

“Many philosophers and historians of culture have come to the conclusion that the Western world is entering upon a new epoch of history. The changes that are sweeping the Westernized cultures are similar to those which swept across it with the coming of Christianity and the onset of the Middle Ages (in the early part of the first millennium CE), or the triumph of Scientism following the Renaissance (around 1500 CE).

“The Fool is also a musical figure, as his costume is decorated with tiny jester’s bells.

The Golden Hermetic and Fortune Telling Tarot 2018

Recently I had a very pleasant conversation with one of my virtual friends regarding the correct ordering of The Fool among the cards of the Major Arcana.
My interlocutor seemed surprised when I said that The Fool does not belong to the beginning of the Tarot deck and actually, he was not placed there until very recent times.
As many other Tarot readers, he thought that according to the Golden Dawn system The Fool, numbered zero, is the very first card placed before The Magician, the card which is traditionally numbered one. Read more The journey of The Fool
