I still have to see Slumdog Millionaire...How about StarWars???
I am open and willing to teach Tarot, in my house, in Irving, Texas. I teach Tarot basics, intermediate and advanced, which of course includes Astrology, Numerology, Hebrew and the Tree of Life, as it relates to Tarot. I have debated on starting a Meet up group here, for the reader as opposed to just Tarot. In Houston Texas this is the best meet up group...they are all true to the path..
Hummm???? Almost looks like the back of The Tarot of the Sephiroth...It is certainly time to update my collection of cards..:-)

Miracles of Joy, in Lewisville,TX is a nice little store, full of food for the soul. They have a very diverse selection of Tarot. The Magick Cauldron in Houston, Tx is also a fantastic place to meet and greet people of like minds. The Tarot selection here is great. In Galveston, Tx there is the Witchery. I am still trying to make my way here. I have good friends that do readings here and others that have stumbled into the quaint little store. Oh, and WOW!! Stuart Kaplan!!:-)
You know I have a strong belief the HigherPower created everything. 2000 years ago, ideology and the current condition of man were synonyms. At some point, one must recognize how far the two have diverged. If the extremes of thought are not reconciled, then war occurs. I am still reading all of these hateful, biased, unbalanced and deceitful quotes. I always remember the bible was translated from Greek, I think. I am no bible scholar but I do live the Tarot and utilize all religious system simultaneously. I know the true creator, created everything, even the Tarot, inspiring men and women, just as it did the bible. Demons and Devil, are the flip side of the coin, as well as mans fears and intimidations. There are no literal devils in Tarot, unless of course you put them there. It is a neutral tool, just as the Bible is and can be use in a similar manner, such as reading the Lords Prayer Backwards is used. Narrow mindness comes out everywhere with different teacher of Tarot, as well as translations of the Bible. I do not even entertain the obvious fears interjected in some of these quotes. We are simple and real, the prophets of our modern age. Still reading Links, when I have a break. Love the Banter!!!
Here is something I learned a long time ago. Limited individuals who read what they want out of spiritual text, only see what is written on the pages in front of them. We who discern that which is invisible, see between the lines, what is behind the words, and know how to challenge outside opinions. So many, who interpret the text, known as the Bible, neglect to accept that this discussion refers to charlatans and thieves, not authentic psychics and prophets. I think it is a common trend to accept palmistry as divine because it is of the body. Astrology is obviously connected with the Christian Bible, as is evident in the Twelve tribes of Israel. The Tarot is the bible in pictorial form. Look at it is as a Nemonic devices for teaching the ideologies, lessons, and myths associated with the Christian tradition. It is so much so, in decks like the Waite-Smith imagery, that people thought it was making fun of the Christian religion. Sad, you know, Christianly truly has a great deal of power in it, at least all the parts they decided to remove. Personally, my mother bought me my first deck of Tarot. I was very young, not even ten. She had not yet found her religo-spiritual path yet and happen to read cards and study Astrology, at the time. Now she is a born again fundamentalist Christian, who wishes she never bought me the most significant tool of my life. It is her refusal to open up her mind, see how powerful the imagery in Tarot is, totally in synch with every spirituality all over the world, least the Christian one, that a wedge has become forced between us. I think combining ones spiritual practice with the reading of Tarot simply empowers it. It adds to the entire practice of the connection to God, Jesus and the Virgin Mary. Once you see how the cards emulate them, you can actually become one with them. It is always better to read cards with the hand of divine to assist you. This truly makes for more accurate, remarkable, and detailed readings. Also, remember when it comes to interpretations of the Bible, it is just one persons interpretations. I have become inclined to study hebrew, so that I could translate the bible for myself. King James was considered a Woman Hater, Witch Hater, and a Homosexual Hater, even though that degree of hatred often represents repressed issues. If your going to read the bible word for word and take it for face value, why read cards? Of course, I know you are not like this. When it comes to the 5 of Pentacles, please remember the Christian religion is one of scarifice and the path of least resistance, as the middle pillar of the tree of life. It is the charity of your soul that gets you the coveted spot on the throne God sits on. And remember the Catholic view is one of the repeated versions of the old sacrificed God myths like Tammuz, Osiris, Buddha, and Christ. It is often thought you can find God by giving up your attachments to the material world. Hey if you want to, its your prerogative to give all of your material possession away and become a popper. I do love the Hierophant. It certainly does represent the tenets of Christianity and is Exodus in pictorial form. I would like to say I just recently began to read the bible. When I began reading it, I was blown away! It is the best story I have ever read. I immediately recognize the Fool in Genesis, along with the High Priestess, The Empress, and the Emperor, as well in Exodus, the Empress and the Emperor again, and the Tower of Babel. So many cards, so much valuable information. No wonder they don't want you to study such a system. It tells you everything they left out. If anything the Tarot proves God is real, in the way in which it works. By the way Christ did have the Tarot, he had the Hebrew alphabet. And never forget the Ace of Cups, is the womb in which Christ took physical form in the Virgin Mary. In essence he became the go between, God on one side, the Virgin Mary on the other, with himself in the Middle. Stimulating Conversation!
