What is the connection between Tarot and the Qabalah?

This groundbreaking deck redefines Tarot imagery, and emerges in the metaphysical landscape as a new paradigm in the technology of self-discovery and empowerment.

One of today’s most talked-about and popular avenues of personal and spiritual growth is the ancient, yet newly rediscovered Qabalah or Kaballah. In the past, the crucial connection between Tarot and the Qabalah has often been obscured or ignored. Tarot of the Sephiroth brings this connection to life by portraying the diagram known as the Tree of Life, possibly the most effective matrix for human consciousness ever devised.

The Tree of Life maps the creation process, both on a human and cosmic scale. The key to the Tree is its ten stations of energy called spheres, or sephiroth. In its truest form, the purpose of Tarot is to illustrate and illuminate the nature of these spheres. Tarot of the Sephiroth achieves this through its stunning imagery and revolutionary design.

Breakthrough Concepts


Cards and Spheres linked. This deck clearly depicts card and sphere associations.

Tarot and Tree of Life Convergence made clear. The cards assemble into a Tree of Life, either in sections or in total. Energies and architecture are vividly communicated.

Major Arcana. The Major Arcana express converging sphere energies -- the relevant spheres and connecting paths appear on each Major Arcana card.

Minor Arcana / Numbered Cards. Each has a colored border that indicates its associated sphere on the Tree of Life. Providing immediate card/sphere identity, these borders give insight into the Minor cards.

Minor Arcana / Court Cards. The Court Cards can be assembled to form their assigned spheres, crystallizing card meaning while deepening sphere understanding.

“The most exciting thing about this deck is that you can lay out the cards…and physically construct a Tree of Life. The Number Cards contain the colored circles of the ten sephiroth, the Majors include the path between two sephiroth as an appropriately colored band crossing the card, and the Court Cards can be assembled together to form a complete sphere on the tree." —Mary Greer, Tarot Newsletter

"Anyone who can count from one to ten can grasp the frame-
work of the Qabalah." Like all great systems, while limitless in
possibilities, it is simple in essence."



“The Qabalah – a.k.a. caballa, quaballah, kabbala, kaballah cabala, et al; the various spellings reference the same body of work overall – is a system of personal evolution predicated on engaging the universal forces of creation. This concept is not as grandiose as it may initially seem. We are doing this all the time. Every breath we take ingests the stuff of stars, the energy of the Big Bang,the aftermath of the roil of genesis, depending upon one’s viewpoint. The difference is the Qabalist does this with awareness and deliberateness.” – excerpt from Guide to Tarot of the Sephiroth
