Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: The mind of a god behaves in ways beyond human understanding. To the human mind the prophecies at Delphi appeared ambiguous, full of double meanings and capable of contradictory interpretation. Nonetheless, the Oracle at Delphi gained a reputation for 100 percent accuracy. If an army general inquired about an impending battle, the Oracle might respond: ‘A great general will emerge triumphant.’ The military leader would then depart, muster his resources, plan a strategy, and enter the fray confident that a great general was assured victory. The Oracle, however, did not specify which great general would win the battle.
Creative Tarot: The Golden Dawn actually didnt last very long. Infighting and power plays, mostly by the male members, splintered the group. Its most famous member was perhaps the Irish poet William Butler Yeats, who remained interested in and engaged with magical systems until his death. The writer and magician Aleister Crowley is often associated with the group, but he was quickly ejected from its ranks for being a terrible person. (This is a fact, he was a terrible person. Look it up.) But two of its lesser-known members would spread the influence of the tarot far and wide: writer Arthur Edward Waite and artist Pamela Colman Smith.
Complete Book of Tarot: Myth 5: The Catholic Church banned tarot as a form of heresy and as dangerous black magic.
