Tarot, Snakes & Ladders, and Divination

Released Sunday, 2nd February 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
In this episode we are exploring the gamification of the spiritual journey as represented through Tarot and also in Snakes & Ladders. And whether divination is good or bad. Or is it neither good nor bad. Or is it both! I go through all the major arcana and the suits and show the relationship between it and the Testaments of God - from the journey through the Old Covenant to the New. I have a theory that this interpretation has been hidden within the cards, like great truths within parables, to keep the teachings alive of the true early illiterate Christian Jews who had to go into hiding and conceal their knowledge or risk being murdered or exiled. It was a picture book in playing card format that depended on understanding the pictures and symbols, like words, which contained a wealth of knowledge about the true spiritual journey.  This morphed over the centuries into a gambling card game called Tarocchini and much later into use in Divination.
