'The Major Arcana Tarot cards (also known as the trump cards) form the foundation of the Tarot deck & consists of twenty-one numbered cards & one unnumbered card (the Fool). They represent a path to spiritual self-awareness & depict the various stages we encounter as we search for greater meaning & understanding. In this way, they hold deeply meaningful lessons. The Major Arcana Tarot card meanings illustrate the structure of human consciousness &, as such, hold the keys to life lessons passed down through the ages. The imagery of the Major Arcana Tarot cards is filled with wisdom from multiple cultures & esoteric traditions, including the Egyptian, Buddhist, Hindu, Sufi, Hebrew & Christian religions.'
What's going on with this Trump fellow? I don't know for sure but I'll have a guess. My immediate line of enquiry is the ancient Tarot, or reversed, the 'Torat' meaning 'Law' to the Qabbalist when vocalised. The 22 Major Trump cards of the 78 card Tarot deck were the symbols used in the ancient Egyptian initiation rituals according to Manly Hall, & were used in card form by the Egyptian priests for oracular or divination purposes just like today. Sacred magic, says Hall originated with these symbols & were used by Pythagoras who is thought to have originated the School of the Essenes in Palestine & thus also the Qabbalah, as much of the Qabbalah is based on Pythagorean numerology, however Pythagoras himself learned off the priests of Egypt.
'Tarot, any of a set of cards used in tarot games & in fortune-telling. Tarot decks were invented in Italy in the 1430s by adding to the existing four-suited pack a fifth suit of 21 specially illustrated cards called trionfi (“triumphs”) & an odd card called il matto (“the fool”).......Whether or not trionfi were originally produced independently of standard playing cards, their function, when added to the pack, was to act as a suit superior in power to the other four—a suit of triumphs, or “trumps.”
Some of these Trump card images have featured heavily the course of the US Presidents life. 'The Tower' Trump is number 16 of the Tarot deck. Another card to play a role recently is the 'Fool' or the 'Joker' (number 22). In the 2008 film, 'The Dark Knight' some of the climactic scenes are shot in or at Trump Tower in Chicago, where there's a showdown between Batman & the Joker, played by Heath Ledger. Ledger was universally lauded for his disturbed performance but died mysteriously during the final editing of the film on 22 January 2008 aged 28.
In reference to the old initiation rites of the Amerindians, Manly Hall (1928) states; 'The 7th ordeal took place in the House of the Bats. Here in a dark subterranean labyrinth lurked many strange & odious creatures of destruction. Huge bats fluttered dismally through the corridors & hung with folded wings from the carvings on the walls & ceilings. Here also dwelt Camazotz, the God of Bats, a hideous monster with the body of a man & the wings & head of a bat.' Whilst learning his trade in New York City, Manly Hall was taken under the wing of arguably the most famous magician of all time, Harry Houdini;
I say arguably because Houdini had a rival for that title living in New York at the same time, that was fellow MI-5 operative Aleister Crowley, & strangely enough, when Crowley moved back too England in 1919, Manly Hall went to the west coast to begin his 70yr ministry & Hall kept Crowley books in his desk at all times. One may have been a book by Crowley said to be the most important book on the subject ever, 'The Book Of Thoth' (1944). In any event, Hall in one of his lectures on the subject says that the Tarot images are believed to have been used through the years in initiation rites & ceremonies of Freemasonry, if this is so, then this Trump card must be part of Freemasonic symbolism;
What of Donald Trump? We know of his Royal House of Plantagenet & Knights Templar lineage, & we know of his Alex 'The Joker' Jones connection, but what's his 'role' in politics? My guess is he's now the ugly face of capitalism. To most people in America & round the world, capitalism has come to represent greedy bankers peddling wars, the 'corporate media' etc, that's why the World Trade Centre & the Pentagon were hit on 911 in my view, it symbolised the death of capitalism in the most spectacular way possible. Trump is playing a role we know that, but his role is to make the American way if you like look out of control, belligerent, ruthless, selfish, all the opposites of what the 18th & 19th Cen Utopians believed Socialism could & should be in other words. Moreover, politicians are being portrayed as inept nowadays, especially here in the UK, & if you watch a News broadcast in Britain, you'll generally find if it concerns politics that the political correspondent appears rather eccentric, bordering on the loopy.....so there's a broad brush being applied here & it may go some way to explaining people like Vladimir Putin & UK Secretary of State for Foreign & Commonwealth Affairs Boris de Pfeffel Johnson (see insert). If one sees footage of Trump 30, 20 even 10yrs ago he wasn't like this, we see a reasoned, polite even likeable individual.

What we are dealing with here is high SYMBOLISM, which is the work of Alchemy, specifically the second or middle grade of Alchemy called the 'Illuminist'. Everything in Alchemy must be destroyed (symbolically) by FIRE, so it can be reborn & the living spirit within it freed, meaning essentially old thoughts, ideas, ways of doing things. Furthermore, 'The great fire of Alchemy is his own will, by means of which these mysteries are locked, the Illuminist is his own psychic nature.....' - Manly Hall.
When we watch & listen to these guys we're having our thoughts seriously messed with.
'27. BRICK WALL appears to represent the place in the Lodge occupied by the Altar. The Holy Bible, Square, & Compasses rest upon it, as do the three Lesser Lights. It composes nine rows of bricks, one upon the other. To give the symbolic meaning of the wall would be mere speculation.'
'The article points out that Mr. Trump himself was born on June 14, 1946 — the same day there was a total lunar eclipse, “though it wasn’t visible from the United States, NASA records show.”
To me, that is rather remarkable, but once again many are pointing out that this could potentially be “just a coincidence”.
When it comes to Trump, there seems to be so many of these “coincidences”. For instance, on his first full day in office Trump was 70 years, 7 months & 7 days old, & that just happened to take place in year 5777 on the Hebrew calendar.
& here are some more extremely strange numbers that I discussed in a previous article…
-Israel was 77 days old exactly 777 days after Donald Trump was born.
-Israel’s 70th birthday will come exactly 700 days after Trump’s 70th birthday.
-Donald Trump won the election on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s 7th year, 7th month & 7th day in office.'
Trump's 'Jerusalem is an Israeli city' outburst is a metaphor. The 22nd (11-11) Trump card of the Tarot is 'The Universe', regarding this 'Uni-verse' card, thelemapedia, a website dedicated to the teachings of Aleister Crowley writes; 'The overall shape of this Atu ['key') is modeled after the design of the “New Jerusalem” [of The Book of Revelations]'. The 'New Jerusalem' according to the Mysteries is the new 'Spiritual Age', it's also the new socialistic society & 'Israel' means the 'Church'......their 'Church'.....
I'd add that the 21st Cen kicked off with 911 (9 - 1 - 1 = 7). Revelations 9:11 depicts Apollo/Apollyon being released from the bottomless pit, & Apollo is equated with Lucifer in 'Encyclopedia of Wicca & Witchcraft'
We then launched into a series of wars in the Middle East. 7/7 is the formula for the resurrection of Osiris, the 'God of the Underworld'.
7 + 7 + 7 = 21.
'XXI - The Universe'Neptun as the cosmic omniscience & Pluto as central power of creation
Planet: Saturn [Satan]
Tree of life: From Malkuth to Yesod
Number: 21 as the symbol of the whole, 3 x 7, the cross sum is the 3 The Universe as the end & completion of the Major Arcana is the symbol for the zenith of development - the achieved goal. The work is done or will soon be & we have found our place in life or will soon do so. Seeing the second decade of the Major Arcana as a way of self-realization, the Universe becomes the crown & the end. The Death was the rebirth, the Art the beginning of the alchemic work, the Devil the overcoming of restrictions, the Tower the breakdown of the jail. We followed the Star, explored the Moon, found the Sun & watched the Phoenix rise from the ashes. Finally, we touched the Universe.
On a more practical level the Universe implies the good news that a goal has been achieved, or a success sure to come, & that a venture will flourish'
