Supertarot was created for tarot students to explore aspects of the Tarot, particularly the tarot card meanings and attributions.
The website has gone through many transformations as technology and my own understanding of the tarot developed.
Tarot is fundamental to my own spiritual development, which continues to this day.
The 78 tarot cards are structured into three main groups; Major Arcana, Minor Arcana, and Court cards.
Tarot and Secret Societies
The history of the tarot has always been driven by Secret Societies, who have used the tarot as a vehicle to promote their own views. The Heads of these secret societies are famous more for their contribution to tarot. The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn in Victorian England influenced modern writers of the Tarot.
A.E. Waite was head of his own Golden Dawn group, and his tarot books are replete with hints as to a greater knowledge if the tarot student joins his organisation. All these Masters do it!
Aleister Crowley is another example of a Tarot Master who hints at greater knowledge, but he revealed far more knowledge than “his” Secret Society (Ordo Templis Orientis) is comfortable with.
Tarot Teachers love to promote this magical view that there is only one set of tarot meanings, but the reality is that the meanings of the card change according to the expertise of the reader, the tarot spread, and the situation of the client.
While tarot teaching is group orientated, an actual tarot reading is intensely personal – just the tarot reader and the client.
Smart Tarot Readers use their own experience to develop their own tarot meanings, based upon the information on Supertarot.
The key to understanding tarot meanings are the fundamental bases, which are the four elements, the numbers 1-10, the zodiac signs and the seven planets, which are the same bases used by Secret Societies.
