Before diving too deep into all the information, first we should ask the question “What is Tarot?” In Essence, the Tarot is a detailed pictographic diagram of the universe and everything within it, and is based on many ancient teachings and spiritual practices; including but not limited to the Holy Qabalah and the Sacred Toroidal Field.
Tarot encompasses the five elements (physical earth, emotional water, mental air, spiritual fire, and the astral – ether), describing how these five geometries weave together to depict the totality of life experiences, and the structure by which the laws of creation are set.
Tarot is a language of symbology, numerology, cosmology, geometry, and art – which fuse together in an intricate web of ideas providing a means by which one’s consciousness can engage, and come to know itself better with. The Tarot then becomes a guidebook through the many different aspects of life, and supports a higher understanding of one’s experiences in a deeper, more meaningful way.
We created this video which goes over the essence of tarot in a way that would help build a great foundation to help you really learn these systems.
What is Patch Tarot?
Over the ages, many different Tarot decks have been crafted. Patch Tarot is a continuation and evolution of today’s most prominent Tarot decks of the past hundred years.
This deck is a purposeful fusion of the most prominent symbolisms and descriptions across the most notable decks, into a singular unified Tarot deck made for you – the modern alchemical scholar.
Herein you will find all of the familiarity of other great Tarot packs, such as Thoth and the Rider-Waite-Smith, along with a touch of Patchman for good measure.
We have done our best to update the energies within Tarot to reflect the modern age and have made a number of changes within Patch Tarot to really make our cards unique.
These changes are written about in great detail in The Book of Patch, but we will explain a lot of the changes in the next few pages so you can learn what Patch Tarot is really all about!
The Book of Patch
Along with Patch Tarot comes a new literary work from our own hearts – The Book of Patch. This is an in-depth explanatory textbook adventure about Tarot, and specifically – Patch Tarot. Similar to Aleister Crowley’s “The Book of Thoth”, this book dives into each card in Patch Tarot, looking at how and why they exist, what their purpose is, and how they fit together with each other.
The Book of Patch also offers in-depth discussions on the esoteric relationship between each card and card sets, going into depth on the Qabalah, Astrology, and Numerology of each card. What you find here on this website contains an abridged version of the Book of Patch, which is more than enough for any avid learner to get started with, and might even be beneficial for you seasoned experts out there.
