What is the best book for practical hermetic Kabbalah? Does anyone have any talismans or spells they wish to share?
Eliphas Levi was the first to associate the tarot cards with the tree of life, amongst other Crowley did it as well. Each pathway represents a trump card, while there are other suits and designations for each Sephira and the four states of the tree of life. The tree of life is the base for all Western esotericism, and as such, a vast understanding can teach one astrology, tarot and alchemy.
Also, interesting to note; Qabalah's practiced in Rosicrucianism, Thelema, Freemasonry &, to a lesser extent, Wicca.
The only reason Hollywood made it into a fad is because of the Ordo Templi Orientis (i.e.: what normies call "le illuminerti").
But yeah; stay butthurt that your winter-chan meme will never work over Jewishness.
