Re: Tarot and The Church

thanks. i'll try to take a look at that when i have some time. what i have seen in the past are other attempts to place the tarot trumps in a context which doesn't quite encompass all the cards. so the next thing to do is to introduce another source which can explain the others.

Re: Tarot and The Church

yes, it is kevin. we are very proud of him over here. he was the captain and MVP of the U.S. national sevens team before being picked up by agen. i guess if you assume that all the images on the tarot cards can only be used for their apparrent face value meanings which are borowed from common religi...
