If you're looking for a simple guide to Tarot card meanings in plain English, this book is for you. Inside, you'll find keywords; a range of traditional meanings; correspondences to numerology, astrology, and storytelling; symbols and insights for Rider-Waite and Marseilles decks; and exploration questions for each card. In addition, you'll also find text that will help you apply the card to matters of romance, relationships, work, spirituality, and personal growth. If you're interested in using the cards to tell fortunes or forecast the timing of events, you'll find this information, too! Many readers prefer for their intuition to guide them to the meaning of a card. But Tarot cards do have traditional meanings -- meanings other people have assigned to the cards over time. Some of these meanings are rooted in astrology or numerology. Some are based on obscure texts. Others are based on insights from experienced readers, who have learned to associate certain cards with certain situations. Rather than memorize the meanings in this book, use them to amplify your intuition! Becoming familiar with the information in this guide can help beginners approach the cards with confidence, suggest new associations for each card, and introduce experienced readers to new ways of thinking about specific cards. The information inside can serve as jumping-off points for brainstorming sessions, lend weight to an intuitive reader's first impressions, and suggest insights a purely intuitive reader might overlook. To get the most out of this guide, skim the entire entry for a card, allowing intuition to be your guide. Take your time; look around. While your question may be about a relationship, a turn of phrase in other passages about your card might prompt exactly the insight you need. This book includes detailed entries for all seventy-eight Tarot cards (Major and Minor Arcana). As you know, some guides skimp on the Minors -- but not this one! You'll find detailed information for each and every card. In addition, the book is beautifully illustrated with full-color, high-resolution scans of a first-edition Tarot published in 1909.

A top tarotist's secrets to personal growth, one card at a time. The two volumes of Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom have inspired a whole generation of tarot students. It has often been described by readers, booksellers, and teachers as the "Bible of tarot readers." It is also often cited as one of the landmark books in modern tarot, and it helped to launch the "Tarot Renaissance" of the 1980s. The two texts-one for The Major Arcana and one for The Minor Arcana--appear together in this volume, which is a reissue of the 1998 edition first published by Thorsons. Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom draws on mythology and esoteric traditions and delves deeply into the symbolism and ideas of each card. It also gives the cards a modern psychological slant based on the pictures rather than a system of occult symbolism. This endlessly useful reference tool provides a concise history of tarot, introduces common spreads, and is a clear and readable book for both the beginning and advanced tarot student.
