As an artist, it is obvious to me that the Tarot is a visual language of archetypes and symbols, but it is more than that: it is a map masked as a game that outlines a path for the seeker of personal empowerment. The Tarot is meant to address the way our greater psychic awareness, aka the Higher Self, communicates through symbols. A deck of cards with images is a perfect language for the symbol-based reality of the right brain. The right brain gathers information from disparate sources and synthesizes the bits and pieces in order to derive a meaning or construct something new.
The left brain catalogues information and data like the hard drive of a computer. In the enlightened, whole individual, the right brain is the creative brain, while the left brain is in charge of executing the directives of the Soul that are coming in from the right brain in practical, physical ways. Thus, in the enlightened individual, the left brain becomes the “personal assistant” of the Higher Self; its job is to bring the rarefied intent of the Higher Self into physical form. The left brain is a crucial component in creative manifestation: it has very practical physical skills.
