The correspondence between the Kabbalah and Tarot was first put forth in print by the French magician Eliphas Levi in the mid-ninteenth century, and later formalized by an organization called The Golden Dawn. Many have speculated that esoteric Judaism, Gnosticism and Hermeticism may have influenced the unknown authors of the tarot, although there is no proof of this. But for generations of esoteric students seeking transformed consciousness, no further proof is needed: it Just Works.

Whatever it's origins, this symbolic environment illustrates a pattern of emanations from God at the highest, most abstract level, down to Man at the most concrete. The 10 Sephiroth represent stable waypoints through which the Divine descends into manifestation. The 22 paths are like roads we can use to travel between these cities, back upwards towards the ultimate source.
