It's important to remember that Tarot cards were invented as an innocent game in early 15th C Italy and only acquired their occult meaning in 18th C France. The symbols of the Major Arcana are so rich, almost anything can be read into them--and plenty of people have tried! Ordinary playing cards can also be used for divination. That forbidden practice isn't unique to the Tarot deck.

Stratford Caldecott reviewed Tomberg's book--positivel--for the NC REGISTER when it was new. It might be helpful to seek his opinion in this controversy.
