Tarot Challenges – Introduction to 9 Keys Tarot

Here is the Basic Premise: Over the ages the Jewish mystical tradition of Kabbalah has been used as an ancient mystical device used to explain creation and the organization of hierarchical energies that underlie all of creation. There are 10 spheres that hold energetic patterns. These are sorted by the highest frequencies on the top and the lower, more dense frequencies, on the bottom of this glyph. This glyph is called the ‘Tree of Life’ by many early cultures.

Structure: There are 22 Hebrew letters and 22 connecting lines between the 10 spheres of the Kabbalah ‘Tree of Life’. Various Rabbinical schools of thought, as well as more modern esoteric traditions, place Hebrew letters into positions along these ‘paths’, but each school of thought varies these positions (as you may be able to tell by the overlay of the page behind this image of a Kabbalah glyph.)

Since Victorian times occultists have placed the Major Arcana of the Tarot onto these paths. However, the Tarot cards and Hebrew letters vary according to which story is being explained by the various traditions. To get to the bottom of this mysterious ‘mixup’ I delved into some of them by intensive solo study and in group classes.

I took a Tarot course originated by the Golden Dawn’s initiate school to investigate the story behind their tradition and felt it was dated, in that it was very paternalistic, and even somewhat misogynist. I thought the story could be retold to a modern audience in ways that were more inclusive and non-gender in nature.

Then I took a yearlong course on Kabbalah by a NYC Rabbi and went deeper into my 10 year study of that mystical system. I learned that even ancient traditions have had various evolutions and that modern thinking by the Reform Jewish tradition allows for modern interpretation and development of philosophical thought.

So I gave myself permission to integrate the many esoteric systems I’ve studied over decades and put the pieces of this “Great Mystery” together. It’s taken me the better part of 10 years to assemble this unified puzzle and I would like to share my insights with other Seekers of Ancient Truths for todays Modern Mystics.

Would you like to know how Hebrew and Celtic Runes are alike and support one another? Would you like to learn about the Archetypal symbols of Astrology and how today’s Tarot cards pick up on these Universal secrets? Watch this space…..
