Tarot: Gateway to the Western Mysteries

How can we experientially access the mystery of the Tarot? What I know is that the Tarot is not just a quaint form of fortune telling but offers us a powerful doorway for accessing keys to our Western Mysteries. The earliest surviving cards date from Italy in the mid-fifteenth century; however, there are earlier references to many Tarot symbols from the Vita Merlini (the life of Merlin), a 12th century Celtic-sourced manuscript.[1] In the 19th and 20th centuries, the symbolism of the Tarot was further expanded and the connection with ancient Western Mysteries was documented. The Tarot also connects with Astrology and the Qabalah, two other cornerstones of the Western Mysteries. Carl Jung[2]
