Any Kabbalists around? I’m learning & I’m in love! WHAT was I waiting for?! This deck is pretty cool too...

I don't know whether I'd call myself a kabbalist because that's such a huge thing to be... but I do have put my feet on the ladder and I'm climbing steadily. I don't know how much process I'm making but I'm fascinated by the topic and discover more and more wonderful things.


ETA: Kabbalah for the tarot is just a tiny branch of the whole mystical forest that's called kabbalah. It's also very functionalized, Christianized and was developed by people who saw kabbalah and the Hebrew Bible through Christian and neo-Platonic eyes, and who didn't really know Hebrew. I'm quite familiar with this branch of kabbalah and very much aware that it's not the whole thing.

I am too. I realize I’m just getting my toes wet & it’s fascinating! Connections & ‘ah-ha!’s are popping up all the time. I’ve dipped into it in the past, but briefly, because it seemed so incredibly complicated but recently I HAVE to know.
