“Secrets of the Playing Card”

via Mary Greer


Very dramatical – and the music is rather loud. They did manage to cover a lot of subjects, though. The voodoo bit strikes me a bit odd, is it really that important or even relevant regarding the tarot? If bring it up, then why not mention also the “shamanic tradition” in tarot, or all the different manga style decks, or even the many christian motifs found in tarot? I was also quite surprised that they didn’t address the Golden Dawn (after all both Waite and Crowley were members) – that would’ve given them “evidence” that secret, occult groups really _did_ use the tarot and even included their teachings in the cards.
