Author Michele Morgan has now developed a method that taps into the user's intuitive and psychic abilities to discover a whole new way of interpreting ancient arcana. Illustrations.
A classic guide on how to master a Tarot reading that combines self-teaching techniques with personal insight provides revised interpretations for the Minor arcana as well as coverage of topics ranging from crystals and astrology to numerology and occult metaphysics.
Hundreds of new Tarot decks have been produced in the late twentieth century, many of them based on the structure and images of Arthur Waite and artist Pamela Smith's Rider-Waite deck (1910). The continuing popularity and influence of the Rider-Waite deck makes it a standard for identifying, categorizing and analyzing contemporary Tarot and other meditation decks. This work of art history analyzes such decks in relation to conventional art styles and movements, including Symbolism, Surrealism, the modernist "grid" and the low/high value hierarchy, and postmodern art movements and concepts such as the dissolution of the modernist value hierarchy, Pattern and Decoration art, and collage. It also examines them in relation to literary concepts, including the novel, utopias, and popular genres. The author's analysis is supported by numerous illustrations, including the Rider-Waite major arcana cards juxtaposed with examples of their counterparts from more recent decks.
