Major Arcana of the Tarot are a coded description of the journey through
life, from incarnation to liberation, of an individual soul. It is
a geographical map which describes the inner itinerary of a being.
Each arcanum represents a stage along the way, a level of achievement.
By examining them in order, one after the other, each of us can feel
the particular energy which emanates from these images . One may "play
at remembering", and find oneself saying, "I, too, have experienced
this...." In the end, perhaps he will realize that the Tarot is telling
the story of his own life
This is the teaching which the Ancients, master builders of the Medieval
cathedrals, chose to entrust to a game of cards. Because of its modest
form, because the game was a way to make money, because it spoke through
images and not in words, and for doubtless other reasons as well,
the message has come down to us.
