Tarot Keywords Quick Reference Table

After noting the card drawn for each position in the 21-card spread, write down the keywords from the reference table onto your worksheet pages. The keywords themselves will support your arrival at the divinatory significance of the reading.

Tarot: The Path to Wisdom by Joseph D’Agostino was first published in 1976. A second edition was released in 1994, which is the copy of the book that I have.

I’m not sure whether this book was intended for beginners, but I’m guessing so, since it devotes most of its pages to card meanings, and gives the obligatory opening chapters on what the tarot is.

As a beginner’s guide to the tarot, it starts you off with instructions for two divinatory methods: the Celtic Cross and this 21-card tableau. . . . Beginner tarot books have come a long way since then. =)

The Eights: Tarot Card Meanings

The Sevens were posted back in July of 2020, so it’s been a while. =)

Heck, between the last video I made in this series and the making of this one, I re-illustrated a whole new edition of the SKT, now in full-color, released the first printing, and sold out of the first printing.

I’ve made the decision to just focus on the full-color Revelation Edition of SKT going forward and keep the videos centered on the TdM, RWS, and Thoth comparisons. I figure you’re not watching these videos for SKT, and if you do want more info on the SKT card meanings specific to how I’ve illustrated the cards, that’s in the Book of Maps.

Rather, the SKT cards are included in the series so you can do a visual comparison of the SKT to the predecessor decks.

Court Card Self-Reflection Exercises with Esoteric Tarot

I had the incredible opportunity of meeting Dr. Yolanda Robinson in London a few years back, where she gifted me with a copy of Studies on Mystical Tarot: The Court Cards, published in 2013.

Sourced from Studies on Mystical Tarot: The Court Cards (2013) by Yolanda M. Robinson

Robinson is a professor of transformational psychology and a member of BOTA, the Builders of the Adytum, a western mystery school tradition dedicated to the study of Qabalah and the Tarot. Studies on Mystical Tarot explores the tarot courts through a Rosicrucian lens, contextualizing the courts through Hermetic Qabalah and modes of inner alchemy.
