"The World" Tarot (Marseille) - symbolism explicated

 Behind the dirty yellow curtain... Childermass uses his Marseille Tarot, hand-copied from an ancient set lent him by a sailer, to divine what's going-on with Vinculus in Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell (BBC adaptation)

William James Tychoneivich continues his slow, extraordinarily detailed and wide-ranging, sifting of the symbolism of the Major Arcana of the Marseille Tarot pack; with The World.

I have reservations about things like the Tarot, but if you must, I recommend the book Meditations on the Tarot- A Journey Into Christian Hermeticism by Anonymous. It is densely packed with unique insights with no filler.

@drizz - I've got it. Certainly genuinely inspired.

It's a fascinating post. A wealth of details skillfully interleaved with speculations.
