Book Overview

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...

Wonderul Addition to Tarot Library

This is one of my favorite books on Tarot. It focuses on the Major Arcana, and encourages people to think in new ways about the cards, symbolism, and opening your mind to personal while reading cards. It's not a book for beginners, or for those who already have their own way of looking at things, but for those who would like a deeper look, and don't mind a sometimes difficult read? It's simply amazing. Trying to read this cover-to-cover or when simply checking on a certain card in a certain reading could be frustrating for some. It's simply not that kind of quick-reference book. For me, simply reading and thinking about one card at a time after reading the section on that card makes this book an extremely valuable addition to your Tarot study. The section on "The Moon" alone is worth the price of the book! However, the book doesn't spoon-feed easy answers or definitions to the reader. If you like to delve deeper, this book should be very helpful for you. It won't give you answers. It does ask the right questions and show you how to find your own.

Important book

This book is complex. As well it should be. The Tarot and the theories of Karl Jung are most interesting, to say the least. Here we have a counter-intuitive coalescence of psychology and the occult. This makes this singular in that effort. It is curiously readable given it's lofty goals.

great book

I couldn't disagree more with the negative reviews on this book. I've been reading it for many years and find it to be deeply insightful and full of brilliant information. I have found it to be much more useful than most other books I've read on the Tarot.

Very good book

Very deep study of the Major Arcana of the Tarot. the author is well knowledgeable of what she is talking about. Gives a new persepective, more throughout than all the newagie psycho-blable we are fed with.

Archetypes in depth

This is an excellent book for anyone who wants to get the full range of meanings about any card. She not only covers the Jungian ideas, but a full range of other possibilities as well, with many pages of information on each card of the Major Arcana. She shows a variety of deck images for each card, as well as other graphics, including paintings and photos of ancient artifacts that pertain to the archetype being discussed. A very valuable addition to anyone's tarot library.
