A true symbolic synthesis of the Western Initiatic Tradition, the Tarot is a remarkable tool for connecting to the divine powers of the Hermetic and Ogdoadic Tradition of the Ordo Aurum Solis. Grandmaster Jean-Louis de Biasi offers this innovative system of high magic to help you attain higher states of consciousness and an evolved inner self.
Pairing the symbolic components of the Hermetic macrocosm—including the five elements, the seven ancient planets, and the twelve zodiac signs—with corresponding deities of the Greek pantheon, de Biasi shows you step-by-step how to channel cosmic energies. This is the ultimate system, reconciling magicians, Tarot deck readers, and astrologers. Using original Hermetic Tarot images as talismans, you will invoke and internalize the unique energies of each card through powerful practices and rituals.
—Work with the Hermetic Tree of Life
—Discover astral practice
—Perform meditations and visualizations
—Explore Tarot's earliest Greek Qabalistic symbols and other associations
As you progress further on this initiatic path, you will deepen your inner experience of the divine Arcana, and ultimately bring about a profound transformation in all levels and aspects of your being.

As they say, that’s a good question but there is no established answer. A Foreword can accomplish anything the writer wants, but the one general criterion is that it is normally written by someone other than the author.
I have my own ideas of what a Foreword should do. It should quickly and concisely forewarn the reader about what is really important in the book that follows, and especially anything that is radical, revolutionary or innovative.

For many centuries the Western Tradition seems to have become reduced to teaching only one aspect of the tradition: Hebrew Qabalah.
