There are methods provided to teach you how to not only read the cards as you encounter them, but also to make intuitive interpretations of each card individually as well as in their relation to the rest of the deck. Tarot started as a card game in the mid-14th Century, and over the years slowly morphed into a tool of Divination. Since that time, Tarot has become a trusted source for personal introspection and guidance. Traditionally shrouded in mystery and even fear, the Tarot has begun to pull away from the negative stigma that is associated with it. In recent years the Tarot has increased in popularity, possibly because of the uncertain times we are living in or because it is a part of a larger trend towards mindfulness.

The Occult Symbols of the Major Arcana that Inspired Modern Tarot
Author: Wirth, Oswald
Pubpsher: Weiser Books
Category: Body, Mind & Spirit
Tarot of the Magicians by Swiss occultist artist and author Oswald Wirth was first published in Paris in 1927, and a Weiser edition was later released in 1985. Long unavailable, the book is back in print in a beautiful new package with full-color pull-out cards reproducing Wirth’s 1889 tarot deck. With a new introduction by bestselling tarot author Mary K. Greer, Tarot of the Magicians offers tarot enthusiasts and students of the occult an in-depth and authoritative analysis of one of the most beautiful and evocative of all modern tarot decks. In this important tarot work of the Major Arcana, Wirth combines the imagery and symbolism from Alchemy, Freemasonry, Rosicrucianism, and the magical heritage of Egypt and Chaldea, and explores the astronomical (rather than strictly zodiacal) associations for the Major Arcana cards.
Basic lessons, exercises, procedures, and fundamental esoteric philosophy make this possibly the best spiritual Tarot book ever published. Relates Tarot t o other occult sciences such as astrology, the Cabala, and numerology. (Divination)
Cosmic Evolution and the Principles of Immortality
Author: Dai Leon
Pubpsher: North Atlantic Books
Category: Body, Mind & Spirit
Conventional wisdom traces Tarot cards to medieval Italy, but their roots go back much further in time and draw on a surprisingly rich variety of cultures and spiritual traditions. Combining pioneering scholarship with practical spiritual instruction, Origins of the Tarot is the first book to unveil the full range of the ancient streams of wisdom from which the Tarot emerged.The timeless principles of conscious realization and cosmological unfoldment underlying the Tarot have never been explored in a comparably extensive and detailed way: herein the teachings of a tremendous range of traditions, including Kabbalah, Western esotericism and alchemy, Buddhism, Taoism, yogic disciplines, Sufism, mystical Christianity, Gnosticism, and Neoplatonism, are masterfully incorporated and synthesized.Author Dai Léon explores a confluence of philosophical schools from East and West as they relate to the Tarot, giving each its due in the exposition of a universal procession of evolution and the soul’s quest for enlightenment. In the process, the Tarot is seen as a unique exemplification of perennial teachings on the soul and its liberation, as well as a still-unfolding window into concealed currents of human history. The book’s profound learning and unprecedented range of references are sure to attract close study among students both of the world’s most enduring esoteric tradition and of esotericism itself.
