Banyen's Description: 

In this new edition of the classic work on Tarot and Jungian symbolism, Sallie Nichols demonstrates how to approach any Tarot deck via the archetypes and Jung’s methods of word association, active imagination, and dialogue. Nichols explores symbolic meanings relevant to everyone and lessons regarding the human condition, psychological states, and attitudes that can lead to personal insight. First published nearly 40 year5s ago as Jung and Tarot, this edition includes an in-depth new foreword by Mary K. Greer, one of today’s trusted Tarot authorities.

This highly innovative work presents a piercing interpretation of the tarot in terms of Jungian psychology. Through analogies to the humanities, mythology, and the graphic arts, the significance of the cards is related to personal growth and what Jung termed "individuation." The Major Arcana becomes a map of life, and the hero's journey becomes something that each individual can relate to one's personal life.

"Sallie Nichols, in her profound investigation of the Tarot has performed an immense service. Her book enriches and helps us to understand the awesome responsibilities laid upon consciousness. She has done this not in an arid fashion but derived from her own experience of the Tarot and its strangely translucent lights. As a result her book not only lives but quickens life in whomever it touches." —Laurens van der Post

“This insightful text on the Tarot is an ideal tool to help you relate to the voice of your archetypes as subtle patterns of power, well beyond old associations with fortune-telling.” —Caroline Myss
