About the Author

Like a lot of people I find myself researching occult literature these days not to divine or learn ceremonial magick but really to try and understand our connection with God and get a feel for where the boundaries are between specifically new age metaphysics vs. more universal and less sectarian substructures that apply with equal merit to the more traditional orthodox exoteric world. Paul Foster Case worked under the commission of Compte De St. Germain for bringing in the Age of Aquarius, something most of Christendom would put firmly in the category of a spiritual warfare issue. By the same token when I read many people's writings such as Case I find myself looking at people who cared, by most people's standards almost too much, about the issues and went to the ends they did to find answers.
My overall understanding of the tarot keys at this point is that they're an explanation of working relationship between conscious, subconscious, superconscious, and the steps of progress by which one steps through from being nominal in their spirituality to having it in full bloom, whether they're working to be an ascended master or whether they're looking to be the next John of the Cross or Theresa of Avila. Admittedly, while the space cube was an interesting application of the Sefir Yetzirah I didn't see a particularly strong concordance between the cards spatially, save in a few instances, in the manner that was evident in the three row tableau but then again I'll admit that my goal was really to gain familiarity with the concepts and narratives rather than stare at the tarot for years.
Overall this was the most concise and detailed tarot to alchemy book that I've read so far, he's also the first of a few authors I've read not to speak of key 18: the moon as a reductive materialism warning. Definitely a book worth reading for those who are curious to gain an entry level understanding of what the major 22 trump mean.
In depth meanings of the major trumps. Explains the cube of space and tree of life. Construction of the Tarot and why things are. Numbers and Hebrew wisdom letters.
Very informative. I refer to this book daily to keep me refreshed in the meanings of each card.
