The Galactic Superwave Tarot is a Cosmic Game to Escape the Prison of the MatrixThe probability that the universe is teamed with intelligent species like humans is veryhigh. The Mahabharata speaks of fourteen worlds including the Earth all of them filledwith intelligent life. Based on our current definition of alien, all of them were thus extra-terrestrial and hence aliens in the current sense of the world. The time has come torecognize that we have the genetic codes of these so called aliens and stop calling themalien.After extensive research, the aerospace scientist Dr. Gordon Allen, said in his book,Enigma Fantastique, that nothing has changed since the days of Atlantis when theAnnunaki magician-scientists of Atlantis morphed into the controlling priesthood of theEgyptians, the Caesars, and the Inquisition of Roman Catholic Church. These sorcererssystematically destroyed all keys to the ancient wisdom. They distorted the rituals of theMysteries so that even those neophytes who passed the tests were not given the real truthof their divinity. The profound symbolism of the Mysteries was misinterpreted andelaborate rituals were created to confuse them. The masses, deprived of their divinebirthright, eventually became enslaved to superstition and these Annunaki continue tocontrol the Matrix which is a control system that creates false personae. Persona is theGreek word for mask. Behind the mask lies our real Self, our soul.Our economic system, our government and our churches are obstacles to an innerawareness necessary for true self-realization. Most institutions manipulate and useus. Where do these dark lords that are trying to keep you from the knowledge of yourselfcome from? Reportedly they exist on a planet called Bellatrix in the Orion Belt. As nightfalls, its directly above Orions Belt and to the right of the hunters other shoulder, brightorange Betelgeuse. The name means "the female warrior," after the Amazons of Greekmythology.In many early cultures the soul was said to have taken the form of a bird to make its flightfrom this world to the next, which is why it is often depicted as such in ancient religiousart. This idea may well have stemmed from the widely-held belief that astral flight couldonly be achieved by using ethereal wings, like those of a bird, something that almostcertainly helped inspire the idea that angels, as messengers of God, should be portrayedwith wings in Christian iconography.So could the Watchers and Nephilim have been bird-men? The answer is almost certainlyyes, The Anunnaki were often said to wear bird masks, great wings, even bird claws,much like the later gods in Egypt. Lilith, “she of the night” and the howler”, said to beAdam‟s first mate, had wings and was always portrayed with owls. Lilith was said tohave left Adam because he tried to dominate her. She too was probably one of Enki‟sgenetic experiments. The many legends of half animal-half human creatures such as thesatyr and the griffin are examples of „failed‟ genetic experiments at creating a perfectworker and/or slave race for the Anunnaki. They, however, are not the only ones to ever
perform such experiments. The Atlanteans also created bizarre creatures through the useof biological transplants.Atlantis was infested with sorcerers practicing bestiality which produced a race ofmonstrous half man and half animals and as well as all kinds of depraved abominations.This evolved into extraordinary, horrific rites of human sacrifice and sex magic whichcontinued until the Aztecs. These black magicians perpetuate the illusion now called theMatrix. For those who, understandably, find even the idea of a reptilian race to beunimaginable, never mind the shape-shifting consider the words of cosmologist CarlSagan: "There are more potential combinations of DNA [physical forms] than there areatoms in the universe." Far from it being impossible for such a race to emerge, it wouldbe more surprising if it had not.”Egypt, a great center of learning and the birthplace of many arts and sciences, furnishedan ideal environment for transcendental experimentation. Here the black magicians ofAtlantis continued to exercise their superhuman powers until they had completelyundermined and corrupted the morals of the primitive Mysteries. By establishing asacerdotal caste they usurped the position formerly occupied by the initiates, and seizedthe reins of spiritual government. Thus black magic dictated the state religion andparalyzed the intellectual and spiritual activities of the individual by demanding hiscomplete and unhesitating acquiescence in the dogma formulated by the priests. ThePharaoh became a puppet in the hands of the Scarlet Council--a committee of arch-sorcerers elevated to power by the priesthood. The Secret Teachings of the AgesThe history of the struggle between the Atlantean and Lemurian adepts is allegorized inthe Ramayana, which is a mystic narrative in epic form of the struggle between Rama --the first king of the divine dynasty of the early Aryans -- and Ravana, the Atlantean(Lanka) black magician .The Ramayana discloses in magnificent symbolism and allegorythe tribulations of both man and soul" (SD 2:495-6). It is quite possible thatLemuria/Atlantis was not third-dimensional phenomena, and they might still exist infourth-dimensional reality.In the Hollywood movie series named the Matrix we saw the concept of a prison createdby Artificial Intelligence (AI) and projected onto the five senses of the human brain. Inthis movie Morpheus: asks the question, "What is real?" implying that the term real isrelative and depends on what information is received by our senses that are processed bythe brain. Science, culture, politics and economics are so cleverly intermingled with truththat is almost impossible for most of us to discern lies from truth. The Matrix controlsscientific, economic, social, historical and religious knowledge and free energy is beingpresented as a recent discovery, even though in reality free energy was discovered morethan a hundred years ago.Quantum theory rocks the common perception of what is real. Astronomy has torn apartthe perception that the land is flat. Advances in chemistry have proved that we arecomposed of atoms containing mostly empty space. Isaac Newton proved that the weight
of objects is nothing but a force called gravity. Sub-Quantum kinetics exposes thecontradictions in the Big Bang theory and offers a scientific basis for the ancient mythsand esoteric lore that encode a theory of continuous creation. Tarot philosophy endlesslypoints out the illusory nature of ourselves and our universe aka the Matrix that hasimprisoned us.Thoth-Hermes and the great Adwaita sages taught that, “While people believe that theyare actually doing things and making choices, free will is in fact an illusion. All thathappens is caused by this one source, and the actual identity of this source is pureConsciousness, which is incapable of choosing or doing. This false identity whichrevolves around the idea that „I am the body‟ or „I am the doer‟ keeps one from seeingthat one‟s actual identity is free Consciousness. All Vedanta teachers say” that whilecreation and creator appear to be different and separate, they are actually two sides of thesame coin.” (Source: Wikipedia)Sri Aurobindo saw this world is Brahman, or God, Truth, and Bliss. He saw that ouregos and thoughts were false. One of the most confusing topics for those who areunfamiliar with the Vedic tradition is the number of gods and goddesses within it. WithSri Aurobindos commentaries however, we discover that the Vedic gods and goddessesrepresent deep psychological concepts as well as the Powers and Personalities of theAbsolute Divine Godhead. Yet even more complex is their embodiment of profoundcosmological concepts which have become all but lost to modern scholars.There is also a hypothesis which says that the universe is a holograph created out ofinformation stored elsewhere. Thus, as pointed out by the Adwaita philosophy we areendlessly marching towards understanding the illusory nature of ourselves and ouruniverse aka the Matrix that has imprisoned us.You are not the thoughts, concepts, or perceptions which keep you in a state of illusion.When you burn these layers of illusion through self-examination and ask: Who Am I?You will eventually know that the „Real Self‟ is not influenced by astrological signs. Fateis not inevitable; fate is the inevitable outcome of the DNA programmed ego which is notdirected by „Supermental Consciousness‟. There is only the „Eternal Now‟. Past, future,time and space are merely beliefs created by the mind. Astrology, if used correctly, willhighlight what you think you are and assist you to know who you are not.The teachings of Thoth-Hermes -- the Hermetic tradition -- is one of the oldest spiritualtraditions in the world, and while no direct evidence links the Book of Thoth to Easternreligions, it shares uncanny similarities in concepts and terminology with Taoism,Hinduism, and Buddhism. In the West, the Hermetic traditions found a home not onlywith pagan tradition but also in all three of the orthodox Abrahamic religions (Judaism,Christianity, and Islam), and many of the most heretical beliefs of the Gnostics are alsoopenly expressed in it. Ethnobotanist and consciousness guru Terence McKenna agrees,calling the Hermetic teachings "a formula for a holographic matrix" that is mirrored inthe human mind and offers mankind its only hope for future survival. The Book of Thothhas long been associated with the Tarot, which is said by many to be the embodiment ofits teachings.
The Tarot can be seen as an antidote to (The Matrix). Significantly, Aleister Crowleydiscusses the individual tarot keys has having their own universe. The Hegelian dialecticlooks at objects as either similar or different, thesis or antithesis which can create thesynthesis or relationship between the two. Why is it important for you to understand thesubject of the Hegelian Dialectic? Because it is the process by which all change is beingaccomplished in society today. More importantly, it is the tool that the globalists areutilizing to manipulate the minds of the average American to accept that change, whereordinarily they would refuse it.The Matrix is the process by which the masters of the universe create crisis, anticipatingthe reaction in advance thus conditioning us that a change is needed. When we areproperly conditioned, the desired agenda of the ruling elite is presented as the solution.The solution isnt intended to solve the problem, but rather to serve as the basis for a newproblem or exacerbate the existing one. When a new crisis reaches boiling point itbecomes the foundation for new arguments against change. Hence, the process isrepeated, over and over, moving us toward whatever end the planners have in mind. Itsalso important to understand that arguments are created both for and against change. Allarguments are controlled. The solutions are "debated" publicly by the manipulators ortheir talking heads. This is done until a perceived compromise has been reached on thebest way to solve the crisis. Then, the outcome of the "debate" — which should supportthe concerns of the public with the mandate to do something — is enacted as publicpolicy. Though few Americans have ever heard of it, still fewer have not been profoundlyimpacted by its use in the effective neutralization of opposition in the formation of publicpolicy.Sri Aurobindo observes that the world moves according to a wiser evolutionary law,whereby nothing can be saved unless everything is saved. Excommunications and hell isthe religious way to control us, there can be no paradise so long as a single person is inhell! Because there is only one Divine Man. The history of religions, the Mysteries, orKnights in shining armor throughout the world testify to the fact that, after the death ofthe Master and his immediate disciples, everything becomes distorted, or simply dies.Until now the law of the “downward pull” has seemed insurmountable. If evolution is totriumph, then life must be transformed in its entirety. For centuries we have been on thequest for the grail but we have found only half of the Secret. The other half is to be foundin the depths of Death and Unconsciousness, and in the very heart of Evil. The key todivine life is to transform the darkness within ourselves. We do not need a superconsciousness; what we need is another consciousness.The Italian physicist Giuliana Conforto writes in LUH, Mans Cosmic Game: highlightsour modes of rigid thinking and sees the body rising again through the fluidity of theHermetic traditions which tune into cosmic oneness. She, like Sri Aurobindo, proposes aradical paradigm shift, implying humans immortality. Her book is another sign thathuman history has reached a prelude in the Cosmic Game by integrating metaphysical,scientific, and artistic concepts. In order to understand the Game, you need to experience
other “invisible realities” as well. Your “reality” reflects your level of consciousness.Contemplating the images of the Tarot is your entry to the Cosmic Game.Laura Knight-Jadcyk „s, The Secret History of the World and How To Get Out Alive’,corroborates this as she believes that our reality is projected from a hyper-dimensionalreality, and that what we perceive with our five senses, the three dimensions of space andthe four dimensions of space and time are not all there is. Alchemists known to theEgyptians as Thoth, the "Lord of Magic and Time" and to the Greeks as Hermes,"messenger of the gods", Quetzalcoatl of the Mayans and the enigmatic Celtic wizardMerlin, promise to return. Their energies affect you in many ways―physically,consciously and spiritually. Their arch rivals, the reptilians, are located in the star systemof Rigel which is also known as Beta Orionis, a blue supergiant that is the sixth brighteststar in the night sky. Similar to Betelguese, Rigel is will pass its supergiant stage soon (onan astronomical timescale), either collapsing in the case of a supernova or shedding itsouter layers and turning into a white dwarf. It serves as the left foot of Orion, the hunter.The controversial Dead Sea Scrolls revealed that the lost Book‟s of Enoch expose theAnnunaki as the black magicians of Atlantis who self-destructed by abusing natural laws.Those who escaped to Egypt from the Great Flood continued to exercise theirsuperhuman powers until they completely corrupted the Mysteries. Thus black magicruled state religion and demanded total submission to their dogmas. In Egypt thePharaohs were puppets under the control of these arch-sorcerers in the priesthood.Interestingly Gnostic Christianity was created to cleanse their religion from theirinfluence but after the Council of Nicea the Roman Catholic Church became under theircontrol again.The Galactic Superwave Tarot reveals some of the deepest esoteric secrets that areessential for your transition to a quantum shift of awareness and perception to break theMatrix. Paul La Violette‟s book, “Genesis of the Cosmos” comes to the conclusion thatthe ancient world‟s scientific and mythically-encoded creation theory puts modernphysical theory to shame. The book concludes that both the Tarot and ancient astrologyprovide us with a coherent theory of the microcosmic/sub-atomic processes involved inthe creation of the physical universe: “…the Tarot metaphorically encodes the sameprocess-based creation metaphysics conveyed in the myth of Osiris. With anunderstanding of the emergence of ordered patterns in non-equilibrium systems, we cannow for the first time resurrect the Tarot‟s and I Ching‟s ancient wisdom”.Once you understand that you are connected to everything in the universe you cantransmit enlightened energy to those around you. When you transmit negative energy,you lower your frequency. The Tarot is an indispensible tool to observe the energy youare transmitting. It supports the concept of Intelligent Design as it combines sacredgeometry, with number, and astrology. They are the ancient art and sciences based onmathematical and geometric principles that show the relationship between all parts ofcreation.
When the discovery was first made physicists found it was virtually impossible to pin-point the exact location of an atomic particle as it has the ability to simultaneously existin more than one place at a time. The only explanation for this is that particles don‟t onlyexist in our universe—they can spark into existence in an infinite number of paralleluniverses as well. And although these particles come to being and change insynchronicity, they are all slightly different.Quantum Physics has proven that our physical reality is nothing more thanconsciousness or thought. Consciousness forms the building blocks of the universe andeverywhere that consciousness explores, it also creates. To change your current reality,all you need to do is change the frequency of your thoughts. The Tarot is your guide toreprogram your DNA and a way to integrate your persona with your Soul. Find a quiettime regularly to focus on reprograming your DNA by eliminating the viruses in God‟ssoftware in your bio-computer by making the following affirmation.“ I am not thebody/mind complex personality created by the DNA. I am the cosmic energy of theuniverse.Laura Knight-Jadcyk came to the conclusion that learning, exercising the mind, workingwith difficult concepts, and continuously expanding knowledge and awareness base canhave such effects as this, it might also be supposed that it can actually alter the chemicalbalance of hormones and/or neurotransmitters thereby turning genes on or off!Epigenetics gives us the power to break the Matrix of rules and regulations made bypolitical and religious institutions that tell us who we are.Time is speeding up because of Earth‟s changing electromagnetic forces. You are in thetransition period between the Age of Pisces and the Age of Aquarius. You‟reexperiencing the breakdown of Piscean structures based on competition and scarcitysimultaneously with the new Aquarian structures based on partnership principles and thesharing of resources. While this transition may cause some concern it‟s actually aunique window of opportunity for you to know who you really are.Dr. Paul LaViolettes findings open a new doorway to the interpretation of our ancientpast. Aided by his background in general system theory and physics, he was able tosuccessfully decipher the lost science said to be encoded in of the Tarot and astrology.He has found that the first 11 major arcana of the Tarot and the 12 signs of the zodiacboth use symbolic metaphor to present an advanced science of matter and energycreation. He has shown that the systems-genesis concepts they encode were discoveredby modern science only in the last 40 years.He also has found new evidence embedded in an ancient Egyptian text that supports thebelief that ancient Magi performed initiation rites into the Osirian mysteries by enteringan underground labyrinth accessed through the breast of the Sphinx. Furthermore, in thearea of archeology and archaeoastronomy, Dr. LaViolette is the first to discover anddecode a scientifically advanced time-capsule message concealed in the lore of the zodiac
and which utilizes a cryptographic key-and-check mechanism to facilitate cross-culturaltransmission of its encoded knowledge.Aldous Huxley christened the Tarot as "Perennial Philosophy," a timeless science of soulor time capsule that surfaces in times of need. Its premise is that there exists a divine orarchetypal level of mind that determines physical reality, and individuals can access thatrealm through direct knowledge of the god within. The Hermetic tradition is one of theoldest spiritual traditions in the world, and while no direct evidence links the „Book ofThoth‟ to Eastern religions, it shares concepts and terminology with Taoism, AdvaitaVedanta, and Buddhism. In the West, the tablet found a home not only in the pagantradition but also in all three of the orthodox Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity,and Islam), and many of the most heretical beliefs of the Gnostics suppressed at theCouncil of Nicea are also expressed in it. Like Thoth, the Gnostics believed that directknowledge of reality could be attained through psychological discipline and Self enquiry.They also shared a common view of the universe in which "All Is One," a pattern ofcreation and decay symbolized by the Ouroboros (the serpent eating its own tail).H.P. Blavatsky (HPB) also believed the 22 major arcana of the Tarot were Hermetic keysto the science of the soul which teaches us how to force the invisible to become visible.The arcana continually call us back to the spirit of the hieroglyphs that make up theTarot, which also reside in the heart. It is only in this sacred place that we can receive andcontain the inner spiritual truth that can transform us. HPB believes that the Tarot may beused to create anything, even a new universe.The fact that we question the Tarot as to whether it be a method or a doctrine shows thelimitation of a “three dimensional mind,” This belief has been supported since the 1920‟swhen quantum physicists hypothesized that an infinite number of alternate universesexist. Leading quantum scientists like Max Plank, Stephen Hawking, Michio Kaku andNeil Turok have all suggested the existence of multiple universes. Understanding thatyou exist in multiple universes is really important. Why? Because you emit thought formsthat affect Earth‟s vibration. Earth relays these vibrations to the sun; the sun relays it toGalactic Center, where it goes out to celestial bodies and back to earth via the same route.So, everything in the cosmos is connected. We cross these different universes as stageson the royal path in search of the Self.The Tarot is your interpreter of The Secret History of the World so that you can escapefrom the collective madness on this planet. So why do you need to know this?Gurdjieff answers.” Because "what you dont know can hurt you." The daily use of theTarot is a way to clear the mind of negative control thought-forms.. Energy clearingshelp you to know who and what your challenges are. So I present the Tarot to help thosewho wish to increase their awareness of themselves, and begin to learn the importance ofclearing themselves of all these mind control energies.
In Zecharia Sitchens “Calendar Tales" from "When Time Began" he explains in greatdetail that Thoth taught the Moon cycles based calendar (which under his other nameQuetzalcoatl became the Mayan Calendar) partly because it needed to compete with hisarch-enemy brother Ra/Marduks Solar based Calendar. Thoth was taught by his fatherEnki, how to raise people from the dead. His brother Marduk / Ra was not. Raexcommunicated Thoth from Egypt to Mesoamerica where he is called Quetzalcoatl.Sitchens conclusion is that Thoth is Son of Enki, the Sumerian serpent god Ningizzida.The god itself is the two (copulating) snakes entwined around an axial rod. It isaccompanied by two gryphons.There are many theories as to where the Garden of Eden is. On this planet it is calledHyperborea at the North Pole. As all our ancestors came from various star systems suchas Lyra, Vega, Andromeda, Orion, Sirius, Arcturus, the Pleiades, and Mars humanshave taken many forms over millions of years. Lyran Felines crossed their DNA withbipedal mammals and began a program of genetic crossing which in the process createda new species that would become known as Adamic Humans. The Feline hierarchy isrepresented by Zu - The winged lion-headed Sumerian storm-bird who took the tabletsof destiny from Enlil and threatened the very existence of gods as whoever wrote themon their breast was the supreme ruler of the world. Bastet, the Sacred Cat,was reveredas a goddess in Egyptian mythology. Zeus made Artemis a lion among women, andallowed her to kill at her own pleasure ... you hunt down the ravening beasts in themountains and deer of the wilds." - Homer, Iliad 21.470Orion, from which the word origin originates, is probably the Garden of Eden where theso called gods played out the roles of good and evil. Why? So we could fully experienceseparation and illusion and know that‟s not we want. Thoth revealed to them thatalthough the Fallen Lords tampered with the DNA of his creation through eons ofgenetic manipulation, human kind were still ‟angels unaware.‟Enki and his son Ningishzidda (Thoth) physically have intercourse with apewomen. When no pregnancies occur they surgically implant the zygotes and fertilizetheir ovaries with their seed, and create zygotes in test tubes. But the hybrid babieslacked vision, dexterity or internal functions. Ninmah, the Mother, overcame some of thedeficiencies when she added copper and clay of Earth to the vessels for the nextzygote. But this zygote developed into a hybrid Earthling who lacked speechcapacity. [Sitchin, Z., The 12th Planet, page 352].Enki implanted a test-tube-grown zygote formed from his sperm and an ape womanovum in Ninmahs womb, rather than the womb of an ape woman, to see if the babyNinmah bore could speak. "In the clay vessel the admixture they made, the oval of anEarth female with Anunnaki male essence they put together. The fertilized egg into thewomb of Ninmah by Enki was inserted. There was conception. "To a male child Ninmahbirth was giving. Enki the boy child held in his hands, the image of perfection was he. Heslapped the newborn on his bottom; the newborn uttered proper sounds." He could speak.
"He handed the newborn to Ninmah. My hands have made it! victoriously she shouted."[Sitchin, Z., 2002, The Lost Book of Enki, pages 138 -139.]Throughout the ages sacred symbolism has been a bridge from the known to theunknown and vice versa. It has been the human way of trying to explain the unknowable.The Tarot has been called the oldest book known to man. According to legend,the original cards comprised of "chapters" in The Book of Thoth.Thoth the scientist high priest escaped from Atlantis as it was sinking into the Atlanticocean 50,000 years ago. Thoth was an immortal, that is, he had conquered death, passingonly when he willed and even then not through death. His vast wisdom made him rulerover various Atlantean colonies, including the ones in South and Central America underthe name of Quetzalcoatl. When the time came for him to leave Egypt, he erected theGreat Pyramid over the entrance to the Great Halls of Amenti, placed in it his records,and appointed guards for his secrets from among the high priests. As Thoth desired tokeep alive the knowledge and wisdom that he had provided his people he summarized hiswisdom onto a series of 22 tablets. He did this by using symbols and images instead ofwords. These emerald tablets became known as The Book of Thoth.Almost all mystical sects and orders have their origin in the “Divine Knowledge” taughtby Thoth-Hermes— The underlying principle of Hermes Trimistegus was „As above, sobelow‟, which denotes that —the macrocosm is one and the same as the microcosm.From the smallest cell to the widest expanse of the galaxies, a repetitive geometric lawprevails, and this was understood from the very earliest times. Thus when theFreemasons and other such orders boast that they had their origins in Atlantis, Lemuria,or even on other planets, they are not lying—although most of them may not fullyrealize the true nature of what is going on.I have been influenced by the Golden Dawn adepts who used Tarot cards as pathwaysinto the mind, rather than as a means of divination. Each of the major arcana correspondsto a certain portion of the psyche, symbolized by the tree of life. The tree is a living,vibrant thing, and each sephirah flows into another. Each of the cards can be visualizedas a doorway through which the spiritual seeker can imaginatively pass throughdoorways to greater consciousness. The other fifty-six cards, called the "minor arcana",which are divided into four suits-wands and swords (masculine) and cups and pentacles(feminine) are of less significance.Like Aleister Crowley‟s Thoth Deck this deck incorporates imagery and symbolism fromHindu, Egyptian, Greek, Christian, and Eastern religions. It is more universal than manycontemporary decks which represent a particular philosophical point of view. The 22major arcana represent "universal principles of life and archetypal personality types"They are multi-dimensional as they are portrayed by the gods and goddesses from manycivilizations. The gods and goddesses of ancient mythology were not actual characters,but archetypes representing the ideal state consciousness which you can attain . Thesymbolism of the minor arcana have correspondences with numerology and decans ofastrology.
There are many theories as to origins of tarot cards: Grail legends; Hindu Puranas andVedas, Troubadors and Gypsys; Hebrew Cabala; Greek philosophy; symbols handeddown from prehistoric legends; India ancient Mexico, Egpyt, and Babylon; the Book ofThoth brought to Europe by the Order of Knights Templar, or alchemists from themiddle-ages, for the tarot as we know it is replete with alchemical symbolism. Perhapstoo much so as there is now no need for secrets as the Vatican no longer burns you at thestake.For some reason conventional tarot wisdom has made Arthur Edward Waite theauthority on the Tarot therefore any speculation of an Egyptian connection by Court deGėbelin‟s book “Le Monde Primitv” (1773), is not taken seriously. In 1783 Etteilla, whoWaite labeled an illiterate and zealous adventurer, heavily promoted the „Book ofThoth‟ as the source. Eliphas Levy, a French priest 1810-1875) saw the connection ofthe Tarot to the Jewish Cabbala, the Bible and the Key of Solomon. He is known tohave said, “if a person was locked up in prison with no other book than the Tarot, if heknew how to use it, could in a few years acquire universal knowledge”. My intuitiontells me that the Egyptian connection is correct but that it may have seeds in Lemuriaand Atlantis. I can heartily recommend Rosemary Ellen Guiley‟s “ The Mystical Tarot”as an introduction to all the possible theories as she enjoys the mystery of where itoriginates. I like that mystery too because it reinforces my own intuition, based on pastlife experiences, that I have been connected with the Tarot for aeons.
