God as a Principle of Wholeness

Someone once defined God as a principle of wholeness, and this is the best definition that I can find; it supports the ideas found in the symbolism of many ancient philosophies and esoteric knowledge worldwide, and in the images of the Tarot itself (see the definition for the symbol CIRCLE). Since the Tarot shows us archetypical images of goddesses, angels, and devils that might seem to support certain beliefs, I think it is necessary to address what I see as the higher purpose of the Tarot. To do that, I will try to define as best as I can the underlying concepts and terms that are in this book.

Christ as a Universal Archetype

Christ, for instance, represents a universal archetype of the principle of Love. The Christ Child, in his innocence (lack of beliefs) and purity, sends a powerful message about how to achieve enlightenment by returning to the original state of innocence and purity of purpose that we had in the Garden of Eden. His message is to become “like a child”— in becoming like him, you are able to “ascend” in frequency through the power of unconditional love. It doesn’t matter whether you believe that Christ is God, or whether you think he was an ascended master, a prophet, or simply a good man. His example communicates an archetype that embodies the principles of wholeness, unconditional love, and unity that speak to all of us.

Universal Archetypes in the Tarot

The Tarot contains many archetypes, especially in the Major Arcana. You could say that the lower cards are related to folklore and fairy tales, populated with common folk, animals, and royal courts; these cards represent the common, lower paths of personal development. The archetypical images in the Major Arcana are related to the esoteric mysteries of consciousness and the structure of the universe. The lower cards delineate a practical path through one of the suits, but each suit is a path of realization in itself. The trumps represent the path of the esoteric student. The lower cards show the minutia of daily life — the trials and tribulations of ordinary consciousness — while the higher “trump” cards represent universal concepts related to self-realization.

To anyone with the slightest interest in mythology, the archetypes in the Tarot are clear to see. For example, a goddess or god represents a guiding principle for humanity: the universal concept behind the figure is what makes it an archetype. An archetype is a symbol that conveys a universal concept, usually in the form of an image, that is instantly understood no matter its geographic origin; archetypes transcend cultural boundaries and temporal beliefs.

Carl Jung and the Tarot

Jungian psychology contains a few key concepts that can be used to show how the Tarot might work. Carl Jung coined the term “archetype;” he believed that there was a collective conscious shared by all peoples, no matter their native beliefs or culture; archetypes are the universal fruits of that consciousness. Archetypes are very powerful symbols that directly communicate with a part of our brain that deals primarily in images — the right brain. Each image holds a great deal of non-verbal information which is much more accessible and direct than verbal or written language.

How Does the Tarot Work?

How does the Tarot work? I have to admit to being a skeptic in the beginning. I even created my first deck without any belief in it or any real experience with the cards. I thought the Tarot was for credulous fools. But after I created the Transformational Tarot computer game, I tested the programming by running a few readings of my own: the results were eerily accurate. When I posted my game online, people wrote me that their readings were the best they ever had.

But my rational mind balked at the evidence. I had to explore the ideas of consciousness and quantum physics to arrive at an answer. (To explore the relationship between mind and matter read The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot.) Obviously, the random program I had designed was influenced by the people running it, or perhaps the subconscious of the player was choosing to translate the reading in a more meaningful way than was possible in a completely random environment. So, that meant that the random program was not truly random, or that meaning was being seen where there was none — or a third option: something else was at work.

Numerology and the Tarot

Using my numerological technique for learning the Tarot, you only have to memorize the meanings for the base numbers, plus the two Master numbers in the deck. Numerology is built upon nine base numbers, plus the Master numbers, which are double number that are all multiples of eleven: 11-99. The Tarot’s fifth suit, the Major Arcana, only goes to number 21, but the hidden value for The Fool is the second Master number, 22. If I were starting to learn the Tarot again, I would first memorize the meanings of numbers 0-10 plus the meaning of the Master numbers 11 and 22. The reason that I include number 10 is explained more fully in the section about numerology.

When you memorize the numbers instead of the specific cards, you start to see how the number works through the energy of the suits, and your intuition is given a much broader field in which to play. This book supplies a handy section on numerology at the back of the book, making it easy to study and memorize the meanings of the numbers.

Quick Trick for Reading any Tarot Card

To understand the cards at a glance, you can see the number of the card as a verb and the suit as the modifying adverb. When you put them together, you have the beginning of a sentence, which can convey a meaning. Thus, you only have to learn the meaning of each suit and of each number to be able to determine what a card means when you get it in a reading. This provides a baseline for the development of your personal lexicon.

Think of the number of the card as the main meaning of the card modified by the suit it is in.

Each suit brings a subtle energy to modify the energy of the number. The suits trace a four step path of manifestation, headed by a Major Arcana card that expresses a more universal principle or natural law. Thus the number Three, which is the number of the Divine Child, and is basically about childlikeness and creativity, translates as different variants of this base energy in the suits. The Three emerges into its archetypical expression as “imagination,” represented by The Empress, Key #3, in the Major Arcana.

The path of the number Three in The Tarot of Creativity:

3 of Fire/Wands
play/spontaneity

3 of Air/Swords
curiosity/discovery

3 of Water/Cups
express/joy

3 of Earth/Pentacles
explore/cultivate

3 The Empress (Major Arcana)
Imagination

How to Read the Tarot

To read any spread, you must first clear yourself as much as possible of personal agendas, obstructing beliefs, and emotional debris; you must be as blank as possible in order for the cards to work. I like to say that the Higher Self, with whom you are communicating through the medium of the cards, cannot penetrate a wall of personal beliefs or a smoke screen of negative emotions. You must become, as much as possible, a blank slate.

The images on the cards are repositories for a great quantity of information. As you work with the cards, you will add more and more information to each card as it accrues meaning for you. Cards will change in meaning according to the reading variables; circumstances such as the meaning of the whole reading, the question asked by the Querent, the position of a card in a reading, and the influence of nearby cards.

The Tarot is a tool for your Higher Self; it communicates with you via the symbolic language of the images. I once had a reading where the Seven of Swords appeared; in this card the traditional interpretation of this card is that the figure is sneaky and duplicitous, taking away the swords from an encampment: the accepted idea is that the 7 of Sword is a thief. Suddenly I saw that the card was telling me that the person who was the subject of my reading was “disarming” or charming. In another reading I read this card as meaning that diplomacy was needed on my part to disarm a potentially contentious situation.

How I Learned to Read the Tarot

When I started to study the Tarot. I took a card a day from the Rider Waite Smith deck and memorized its number, image, title, number, and meaning. I held the card in my mind for the entire day. The next day, I memorized another card after I recalled the images and meanings of all the cards from the previous days. Like Alice in Wonderland, I found myself “falling into” each card as the symbols and archetypes on the pictures came alive for me.

Then, after I had thoroughly memorized the deck, I suddenly “saw” the Knight of Swords when I thought of a friend. The image on the card so completely summed up his character at the time that I was startled. The sudden appearance of the card in my mind stopped my train of thought long enough for me to see the connection. From then on, I have a hard time seeing this image without thinking of this type of energy. The Tarot had become a way for my Higher Self to communicate with me by using the images on the card to trigger my intuition.

The cards remained an intriguing mystery to me that I slowly explored as I started to do readings for myself. I recorded each reading in a notebook, in order to track my progress. I read for situations and people that had just entered my life. A couple years later, I found myself suddenly interested in numerology. I realized that the numbers on tarot cards are intrinsic to their meaning.

The Pip Cards in the Tarot

The pips are the cards numbered from ACE (1)-10. They show current energies that may be hidden from view or that the Querent may not see or want to see.

At the highest level, when correlated with their Arcana numerological equivalent, they show how to apply the higher principles and realizations in the Arcana cards to the issues encountered in daily life. For instance, the sixes in all the suits are correlated with the Lovers/LOVE card in the Major Arcana; all Sixes are then about the principle of LOVE as expressed through the energy of the suit.

The Meaning of the Aces in the Tarot

The Aces
The aces represent the distilled energy—the seed energy or essence of each suit. As such, they could be said to be both higher and lower than the court cards, just as in a regular playing deck.

originate/initiate/genesis

Aces are related to their numerical equivalent in the Major Arcana: Key #1, The Magician/ATTENTION, who presents the tools of earthly existence to the newly incarnated Fool. The Ace has no direction of its own; they are filled with raw potential. They are the energy of the suit, ready to be directed by consciousness.

The Aces represent raw or initial passion, feelings, thoughts and needs that can be directed into something more. They represent hope, a possibility, an action to take, a future that you can create. The aces demonstrate the promise of the power represented by their respective suit: each suit opens up a path that when used together allow us to create on the material plane.

The Court Cards in the Tarot

The court cards trump the lower cards in the suits. The royal figures pictured on the court cards are analogous to those of a modern playing card deck, but the Tarot adds one more card: the Page.

The court cards represent creative mastery in each suit. In a departure from traditional tarot decks, the royal cards in the TOC are assigned a number, which aids in interpreting the card’s numerological meaning.

11 – PAGE ~ a message or messenger coming through the energy of the suit

12 – KNIGHT ~ the active agent of the energy of the suit

13 – QUEEN ~ mastery for the suit expressed as a “female” energy

14 – KING ~ mastery for the suit expressed as a “male” energy

Meaning of the Minor Arcana in the Tarot

The suits in the Tarot of Creativity trace the same path of creative manifestation, teaching us how to use our power of creativity wisely. In Parallel Mind, The Art of Creativity, I stated that we are unconsciously creating all the time. If that is true, why not become a conscious creator, and create the life of your dreams? To do that you must learn to use your emotions as a guide, a compass to point out the path of your Soul. Eventually, the choice of your emotions can help you find the frequency that matches your desire; this is how to use emotions to consciously create.

Wands/FIRE
Energy, the Super Conscious (Higher Self), inspiration, desire, passion, and planning.

Swords/AIR
Thought, character, self-conscious, the ego, moral principles, communication, reason, and the intellect.

Cups/WATER
Emotions, romance, love, creativity, relationships, the Soul, karmic attachments, the past, and the subconscious mind.

Pentacles/EARTH
Health, the material world, materialism, the physical body, money, security, the environment, and industry.

The Secret of Material Manifestation Hidden in the Tarot

In the TOC deck, the suits show the creative process from inspiration (Wands/FIRE) to thought (Swords/AIR) through emotions (Cups/WATER), and then finally entering the material plane (Pentacles/EARTH).

Together, they show the path of creative manifestation:

FIRE (Wands) —> AIR (Swords) —> WATER (Cups) —> EARTH (Pentacles)

This order is not the same one that most tarot scholars follow. My system comes from the insight I had when I wrote my first book, Parallel Mind, The Art of Creativity. I was following the genesis of emotions and their role in creating the physical reality. I intuitively saw a diagram of Russian dolls enclosing each other.

russian-dolls

Using my diagram of the four bodies that make up a human being, the creative process is as follows: inspiration from the ethereal creative body becomes a thought when it passes through the mental body; the resultant inspiration is charged with an emotion as it passes through the emotional body; the charged thought coalesces into matter, becoming physical reality.

Notice that the position of the emotional body is the one nearest to the physical body at the center. Its role is to coalesce your creative thoughts from the ethereal creative body into the density of physical form. Emotions are extremely powerful—they can bring us health, happiness, or success in any endeavor; emotions are the most powerful tools in our creative toolbox.

Emotions are the catalyst in the alchemical process of making your thoughts real. You may think that you have to work to manifest your thoughts, but the process is happening all the time without your conscious control. Not many people realize that their emotional life is determining their physical reality. ~Parallel Mind, The Art of Creativity, Aliyah Marr

The Four Paths of Material Mastery

[In the Tarot] The suits [or the Minor Arcana] represent the four worldly paths to personal mastery through natural human qualities; these can be either weaknesses or strengths, depending on the card, the orientation of the card, and the other cards in a reading. The suits in the Tarot are analogous to the four suits in a playing card deck, but they contain one more card in the court cards, for a total of fourteen cards in each suit.

The suits each demonstrate one of the paths of the seeker, and shows a progression of understanding as the numbers increase, with lessons at each stage or number. Each suit represents a path or tool on the journey of personal evolution, and are seen as representative of the four elements of the Earth. The final fifth suit is the Major Arcana, which represents the path of mastery.

The suits of traditional tarot card decks are analogous to the classical elements, and this is how they are represented in The Tarot of Creativity:

Wands = FIRE

Swords = AIR

Cups = WATER

Pentacles = EARTH

In classical thought, the four elements earth, water, air, and fire frequently occur; sometimes including a fifth element or quintessence (after “quint” meaning “fifth”) called aether in ancient Greece and akasha in India. The concept of the five elements formed a basis of analysis in both Hinduism and Buddhism. In Hinduism, particularly in an esoteric context, the four states-of-matter describe matter, and a fifth element describes that which was beyond the material world. Similar lists existed in ancient China and Japan. In Buddhism the four great elements, to which two others are sometimes added, are not viewed as substances, but as categories of sensory experience.

The ancient Greek belief in five basic elements, these being earth, water, air, fire, and aether, dates from pre-Socratic times and persisted throughout the Middle Ages and into the Renaissance, deeply influencing European thought and culture. These five elements are sometimes associated with the five platonic solids.

Aristotle added a fifth element, aether, as the quintessence, reasoning that whereas fire, earth, air, and water were earthly and corruptible, since no changes had been perceived in the heavenly regions, the stars cannot be made out of any of the four elements but must be made of a different, unchangeable, heavenly substance.

The Major Arcana

The Major Arcana are the heart of the Tarot. These cards are the highest cards in the deck. Also called the “Trumps” because they trumped all the lower cards in the deck, if you are playing it as a game. This term also refers to the ancient Roman triumphal march, when returning victorious from a campaign. The Major Arcana represent the progress of the Soul in its journey through life.

In the Tarot of Creativity, the Major Arcana cards are indicated by the Ouroborus symbol that surrounds the numbers.

The Ouroborus is the symbolic rendition of the eternal principles presented in the Emerald Tablet. The great serpent devouring itself represents the idea that “All Is One,” even though the universe undergoes periodic cycles of destruction and creation (or resurrection). In Orphic and Mithraic symbology, the Ouroborus was called the Agathos Daimon or “Good Spirit” and was a symbol for the “Operation of the Sun.” In Greek terminology, the Ouroborus was the Aion, which Herakleitos likened to a child at play. To the Greeks, the Aion (from which our word “eon” is derived) defined the cosmic period between the creation and destruction of the universe. ~ en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ouroboros

The Tarot Key

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.

The Language of Your Soul

The analogy of Tarot to language is obvious: each card in a reading can be seen as a word in a sentence. In a language, a word is made up of characters that are each symbols that stand in for a packet of information. As the symbol-characters are strung together to create a sentence, so the symbols and archetypes in a card can be assembled by the brain into a cohesive unit of meaning. And in the same way that words are strung together to create a meaningful sentence, so images on the cards in a reading can be assembled in a coherent and meaningful sentence.

The Path of Creative Manifestation

In the unenlightened individual, the system of creative manifestation takes an unconscious turn, still manifesting, but in a way that doesn’t serve the greater evolvement of the individual. The monsters of undigested fears and overwhelming negative emotions populate the dreams and the reality of the person’s field, eventually spilling out like a sickness into the collective conscious.

Only when we are open enough to see that consciousness may be greater than that which can be contained in the physical brain, can we understand that reality may be much more than we can currently comprehend. To understand the way reality works at the quantum level, the individual has to first realize that thoughts and emotions influence perceptions, if not reality itself. Once that first step has been taken away from literal, materialistic, so-called “rational” explanations, it is possible to open up to a psychic reality that runs parallel to material existence, a veritable river of consciousness and information that is infinitely vast, broad, and deep.

The Smoky Mirror of Duality

All the most ancient systems of knowledge assert that physical existence is created by the mind, which projects the reality the individual then experiences. Perception is a “smoky mirror” — smoky to the degree of the individual’s realization of their role in creating what appears in the mirror, and possibly even the mirror itself.

I am the Smoky Mirror, because I am looking at myself in all of you, but we don’t recognize each other because of the smoke in-between us. That smoke is the Dream, and the mirror is you, the dreamer. ~ Ruiz, Don Miguel, The Four Agreements

Talk to Your Higher Self

The purpose of tools like the Tarot is to put you in contact with your Higher Self by accessing your natural intuition. In order to do that, you must learn how to choose your vibrational signature. As long as you consistently resonate with the frequencies of the lower emotions and dense, disempowering belief systems you cannot “hear” the messages of Spirit, or your Higher Self. If you cannot hear the voice of your Higher Self, you are like a boat without a rudder on the sea of life.

The Language of the Higher Self
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 High Priestess

The creator can never stand outside his creation. This is an immutable law of consciousness. ~ Unplug From the Matrix: Truth is Sometimes Stranger Than Fiction by Aliyah Marr

* * *

The implicate or sea of awareness was known to ancient mystics, and alchemists; it is what the mystics might refer to as the cosmic mind stuff; it is a sea of consciousness that underlies everything else. In the Tarot the quantum implicate is represented in the card The High Priestess, while the explicate, or unfolded order is the world of appearances, represented in the next card in the Major Arcana, The Empress. The Empress card represents the natural world of matter — Newtonian physics. The world of the senses is the result of the energy, or rather the potential, underlying the form, the quantum implicate represented by The High Priestess.

The Tarot teaches the principles of the universe and what happens with the application of directed consciousness in the first seven cards of the Tarot. The Tarot allows us to tap into this awareness through our intuitive interpretation of the images on the cards.
