In order to really ‘feel’ Tarot cards, it is important to delve into the elements. I’ve done that a lot and actually I still do. I never get tired of the books and illustrations of the ancient alchemists and can often spend hours in them. Admittedly, some things go way over my head, but practice makes perfect!
I often try to incorporate the work of the old alchemists and occultists into my study material; I translate and interpret where I can so that students that do not have much time to delve into archaic texts can also get acquainted with the work of these pioneers of science.
In 1 of the 3 books on occult philosophy of Agrippa, I came across the following. It is an excerpt from a poem by Publius Vergilius Maro, a famous Roman poet who lived from 70 to 19 BC. I like to share it and hope to make you curious too!
