The Major Arcana cards are referred to as “keys;” they are indeed keys to the mystery of the universe, the YOU-and-I-verse that exists within our psyches. The Tarot opens the door to understanding the mysteries that have haunted man for thousands upon thousands of years, ever since the first being thought to look at the skies, and see a meaning enclosed inside a mystery.
And so, we come full circle, to the alchemist’s concept of the Quintessence: what they termed, “the realm of the gods,” as a reality, unseen, but able to be reached. This psychic, psychological realm is where the archetypes, once revered as the gods, overseers, protectors, and idealized prototypes of man, still exist as images, deeply engrained into the collective conscious. This is the rich cultural treasure that is our heritage as human beings.
Eventually the seeker comes to understand that the ultimate mystery he sought to understand was never “out there” at all; it is a mystery of the mirror, the mirror that is the mind, which is ultimately an explanation wrapped in an enigma.
