I am studying the tarot, I purchased the Eternal Tarot, but the booklet was not very detailed.
I also purchased Tarot & the Kabbalah, which is wonderful, but still not very detailed concerning the Minor Arcana. I want to know about the sigils, magical symbols and the other symbols and their "general/basic" meaning, mainly the ones at the top of the cards.
I get the Hebrew Letters, the numbers, even the planets and the constellations/zodiac and even few of the other symbols here and there (some Egyptian hieroglyphics).
Could you suggest a book about symbols, mainly those used in the Eternal Tarot? Any reference suggestion would be helpful. Thank you. =)

The sigils in the center correspond to the sephiroth. They are explained in the appendices of Tarot and Kabbalah.

The magical letters are generally variations on the Hebrew letter of the card. Their alphabets are easily found on the internet, but have no real value once you know the Hebrew letters.

I do not know of any reliable books about those symbols. All of the books I have seen are corrupted.

The meanings you are longing to understand are not written in any physical books, but can only be discovered through awakening consciousness. Meditate, pray, reflect, and be patient. The language of the internal worlds is already known by the consciousness, but we willfully abandoned it.

Through the process of liberating ourselves from the ego, we naturally recover the ability to understand all these things.

I thank you for your help. Already knew about the sigil corresponding to the sephiroth in the major arcana, but the minor arcana does not have any of the same sigils, and those are the ones I was hoping to find out about.
So it seems that I will just have to go with my intuition about the symbols, which is fine, it was my intuition that the cards should all have numbers 1-78, not just the major arcana that lead me to get get the Eternal Tarot booklet and deck in the first place. So thanks again, I am sure it will come to me, even if I don't really know why, I was just hoping for some insight and a good reference if available. I am all for taking advantage of those who have both knowledge and wisdom, that I how I found this sight, I was researching something. =) May you be blessed, in all things, at all times and in all ways, for the well being of all precious souls. =D
