The Tarot was designed by Freemasons throughout the 18th and 19th century to serve an elite agenda (Sosteric, 2014; Decker, Depaulis, & Dummett, 1996). Freemasons obscured the elite ideology and agenda by successfully presenting their work as reflective of ancient spiritual wisdom. The presentation of the Tarot as something other than a reflection of elite ideas about management and control prompted Decker, Depaulis & Dummett (1996) to suggest that the Masonic Tarot was the...

Many commentators try to read in progressive spiritual and political elements, where none exist. We call this an attempt to "recover" authenticity. For example, "The Tarot, however, is a path of liberation. The fear that Jahweh expresses, that human beings 'will become like us' , is precisely the Tarot's purpose - to fully bring out the divine spark in us and unite it with our conscious selves, to end the duality of God and human and make them one. Therefore, though it keeps much of the same symbolism as Genesis, the Rider pack Lovers subtly reverses the meaning." <ref>Pollack, Rachel. Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom. Harper Collins, 1980. p. 62. </ref>
