I'm happy to announce the release of another new book for the scholars among us. Researched and written by Yolanda Robinson, Ph.D., it is entitled The Revised New Art Tarot; Mysticism and Qabalah in the Knapp-Hall Tarot. I thought that while my readers are awaiting my next contribution, Foundations of the Esoteric Tradition, they might enjoy this excellent tome about the New Art Tarot by Manly P. Hall and Augustus Knapp. http://www.tarotarkletters.com/2015/08/manly-p-hall-and-masonic-tarot.html
According to the “bastard Greek Kabalah on the Hebrew type”, which is the historical body of correspondences I am reviving from the 1600’s, here are the astrological and Tarot events in the sky overhead at NewMoon. It might prove to be of value to lay your birthchart on a large table. Around it place the Trumps of the Zodiac into their twelve house positions, then lay out the planetary cards into the locations where you natal chart falls.http://www.tarotarkletters.com/2015/08/newmoon-notes.html
