From The Royal Road: A Manual of Kabalistic Meditations on the Tarot by Stephan A. Hoeller, p. 11
"...[T]he significance of the cards does not lie exclusively in their attribution to or correlation with other systems of symbolic philosophy. Kabalah, Astrology, Alchemy, and other occult disciplines shed a measure of additional light on the Tarot, but it must be clearly recognized that the cards themselves can also be said to radiate their own special, and by no means negligible, light. The Tarot works as a means of cognition whether or not we are able to relate it meaningfully to other systems. The cards speak directly to our intuition, to the unconscious potencies of our soul."
