Editorial Reviews

Review

"One of the best texts dealing with Jungian theory and Kabbalistic imagery, meaning, and their relationship to the Tarot that I've seen. This book is a must addition to any Tarot library, and will undoubtedly add a new depth and dimension to your reading and practice, as well as your understanding of the Tarot." (New Age Retailer)

"In this amazing book [Gwain] pulls together the tarot, Jungian archetypes, and the Qabalah. Not only does she add some very useful layouts for spiritual and self-awareness purposes, but she also helps the reader assess where he or she fits into these schemes and what parts of the self might be serving as shadows, or be unbalanced in an unhealthy way." (Dr. Tami Brady, TCM Reviews, Oct 08)

Format: Paperback
Decent Jungian interpretation of the tarot. NOTE: binding is merely glue and will crack, allowing for loose pages, because the books have aged, even in storage.

The author presents much good information, but muddies it up for the reader by discussing a new suit she is working on called "Spirits." In the Introduction, on page 2, she mentions she is working on the "Spirits" suit, one that is beyond the archetypal realm of The Fool. Chapter 15 is dedicated to working with the Spirits suit, and several readings where Suits cards came up in a spread are used as examples. For example, on page 129 (in the chapter dedicate to Spirits suit), she writes that all the cards in the spread for a particular person were from the Spirits suit. In the interpretations for the individual suit cards, there are interpretations for the Spirits suit. For example, the book gives interpretations for ace of Cups, Wands, Swords, Pentacles, and also Spirits. Outside of the chapter on the Spirits suit, there are no examples of spreads containing cards from Spirits suit. Including a new suit of her creation is only going to, in my opinion, end up creating confusion for many readers, thus only three stars.

I love this book, but as is my trouble with Tarot I don't practice it enough to get the information to stick. I would say it's great for someone who already has a general knowledge of Tarot and wants to go more deeply into the meanings of the cards. Great for Psycology lovers.
