However, they use the same structure and symbolism to say very different things. Waite was engaged in Christian mysticism, and had a penchant for Grail legends, two things that are very obvious in his deck, if you look closely enough.

I, however, am not a Christian mystic, so many of the things Waite alludes to in his deck don't sit well with me, and so any meditation on the is likely to come a jarring end quite quickly.
Lol right, and like I mentioned earlier - the guy whose lesson plan I'll be on is Paul Foster Case whose another genius right up there with Waite and Crowley.
