The Tarot

The characters we meet in tarot are not solitary, disparate figures; they are archetypes. On one level they represent qualities waiting to be birthed in our beings. On another level, they tell a story of the human journey, the unfolding of the human spirit as it traverses different terrains. 

The Sufi Tarot is a bridge between the inner and the outer. It is a bridge between cultures, a bridge between past and present, and a bridge between our souls. But perhaps, most importantly, it is a bridge between the healed and unhealed parts of our beings.

“Readings from this tarot have been a guiding and reassuring light, always pulling me back to where I need to be. I have no doubt these cards will be significant.”

Laury Silvers, Ph.D, historian of Sufism and author of the novels, The Sufi Mysteries Quartet

Sufism has been called the path of the heart because it is a process of turning within to the fountainhead of all knowledge through the opening and purification of the heart. In tarot, we meet the carefree fool, the enigmatic magician, the mystical high priestess, the commanding emperor, the nurturing empress and more – archetypes that represent primordial qualities within us, some manifest but most unmanifest. Our job on the spiritual path is to awaken these qualities, to recognize them in their shadow and in their light and to bring them into balance in our beings.

“The four suits of the Minor Arcana are based on the elements of earth, water, fire, and air. For the Sufi, these elements are the basis for understanding human nature. As we learn to balance them, in shadow and in light, we come closer to the state of balance and peace that mystics aim for.”
