Twenty-two Tarot Higher Mysteries
Twenty-two Tarot Higher Mysteries of the Tarot Cards are the twenty-two Major Arcana Cards in your Tarot Deck. They are also known as the Twenty-two Keys of the Tarot. Basically, these keys open your mind to becoming aware of this material plane, and of the astral plane (the spiritual).
The Intuitive or Psychic Tarot Reader
The Intuitive or Psychic Tarot Reader looks at the image on a Trump Card, so to get impressions. Impressions are ideas that we get from looking at the Card. We can speak the thought to our client or we can interpret its meaning. In other words, we intuitive or psychic Tarot Readers can sense the worlds around us.
When you are still a beginner Tarot Reader, you first start by looking at the image on each of the Twenty-two Majors. You look at each one for as long as you feel you must do so. You can even study what the different drawings on the cards represent. You can also learn their meanings and keywords if you want.
However, after some time doing this, it is highly suggested you throw away the book. So to start getting your own impressions from the cards. So to pick up what each one of the cards is trying to tell you.
Throw away your Tarot Book
Throw away your Tarot Book? Newbie Tarot Readers are advised to throw away their Tarot Book! Meaning, do not use your Tarot Book as a crutch!
The mind in the background of the Card
The mind in the background of the Card, is the Intelligence.
Instead, “look for the mind in the background of the Major’s Card you are looking at”, Dion Fortune, the Mystical Qabalah. A Major’s Card is set up in such a way, that you get the impression you are a spectator of a play. As the spectator, you are looking at a scene on a stage. You can readily see the furniture and the actors on the stage. But what you cannot see, are the people behind the curtain in the background of the scene.
On the stage, behind the furniture and the actors, is a large curtain in the background. Behind that curtain, are the writers and the director of the play. You can not hear them; nor can you see them. But they are there anyways. The writer and the director are the minds in the background of the play who whisper directions and words to the actors on stage!
The same goes for the twenty-two Higher Mysteries of the Qabalistic Tarot. Each one of those cards has a “mind in the background” of the Card. The “mind in the background” of the Card is called a “Core Force”. Each one of the twenty-two Major Arcana Cards, represent a Core Force on the Stage of your life, or of your Querent’s life!
More specifically, this Core Force is the Director of your own play. It gives you the words associated with the image on the Card that represents it. The “mind” in the background of the Card, will give you clues to listen for and to look for.
The Mind in the background will whisper to you the directions for you to take with your mind in both the material and the astral world. It will whisper to you the words to interpret for your client. All you need to do is to look at the Card, and to listen to its Secrets!
