Banyen's Description: 

Renowned author Rachel Pollack has spent more than forty years studying and practicing Tarot. This insightful guide distills her vast knowledge and offers a direct, accessible approach to “let the Tarot discover you so that you may discover yourself in the cards.” 

This book will teach you the meanings of the cards and enable you to begin doing readings right away. More seasoned readers will find that this basic reference has a richness and depth that will call you back again and again to discover your own truth within the cards.

For my own descriptions I have tried to let the meanings grow naturally out of the cards’ images, stories, and spiritual wonders—that, and my own forty-plus years as a Tarot reader.

 As ever, Pollack is incisive, insightful, and subtle. She encourages readers to:

  • Find new descriptions and divinatory meanings with a modern twist
  • Learn not only what each card signifies, but how to discover what  it means to you
  • Enhance your understanding of the cards with information about numbers, elements, astrology, and Kabbalah
  • Try the unique spreads inspired by each Major Arcana card
  • Understand Tarot’s rich history, including Eden Gray’s immense influence.

Each Major card really presents its own unique view of the world, so that when we do one of these readings (using the whole deck) it’s as if we ourselves become the Magician or the Empress of the Fool asking about magic or passion or foolishness in our lives.

Also by Rachel Pollack is Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom.
