It's a generalization coming from a lot of personal experience. I've just never seen Kabbalah spelled with a Q in the Jewish community, meanwhile new age/magician types often spell it that way. So I feel it's important to point out that the guy you mentioned definitely wasn't studying Kabbalah within a centuries-old oral tradition like other Kabbalists. The importance of lineage is debatable, but really, anybody can combine any number of spiritual practices..and as a spiritual seeker you probably want to know you're working with something that has a good chance of being effective....Anyway, that wiki link I posted mentioned that sefirot in hermetic Qabbala is different than in Jewish Kabbalah. So to then assert that the tarot represents the sefirot is pretty far-fetched. I mean for one thing there are more tarot cards than sefirot. But regardless of whose sephirot you're talking about, in their own ways both sefirot and tarot are fairly complete symbolic systems of psychological states and archetypes (although I wonder whether sefirot leans more toward the metaphysical than tarot) with their own proven methods for gaining understanding..so I wonder why you have to equate them? As systems they each have their own internal logic, and if you take the symbol out of context (which is what you do when you compare tarot to sefirot) you lose a lot of meaning. Maybe you create new meaning, I don't know...
