La vida es sueño-life is a dream, said Spanish playwright Pedro Calderon de la Barca. If that is so, then what are our dreams?
In "Tarot and Dream Interpretation," Julie Gillentine makes an original contribution to dream analysis that puts the intuition and reason of the dreamer-independent of psychoanalytic theory- right in the center of the process.
Gillentine asserts that, if the dream is an inner "oracle" of the dreamer's self and its relationships, then its symbolic meaning may be directly accessed and understood through the synchronistic process of meditating on Tarot cards.
For many persons, accustomed to viewing the Tarot as a spurious form of gypsy fortune-telling, such a proposition may justifiably provoke skepticism.
Yet for the reader seeking to assume greater responsibility for understanding his or her own dream life, Gillentine opens a doorway to seeing the Tarot in a new light.
In an initial overview, Gillentine reminds the reader that dreams may have mental, physical or spiritual significance, and classifies dream symbols as to their respective levels of meaning: universal, cultural and personal.
In the latter part of the book, she provides a basic outline of the Tarot cards, their distinctive symbolism, and their meanings, informed by her many years of study of the cabala and its allied art, astrology. She also has complied a comprehensive glossary of various meanings for dream images.

In between, Gillentine urges her readers to keep a dream journal, and presents her original dream-recording chart, which enables the dreamer to quickly identify key symbols and the feelings they evoked in the dream.

I can figure out many dreams. On others, especially the ones that hangs over you all like a dark cloud. The use of Tarot and dream interpretation can many times explain, not everything, but put the dream in a difference perspective. An understanding that helps the dream and a way to find out meaning. Dream dictionaries a good, but if you have the bizarre dreams I have, there isn't enough in the dictionary.

Dreams can be a huge insight into something happening to you or someone you care about, but don't understand. Oh ya, some dreams are easy to figure out when you think of the symbols it held and trace them backwards.

This is a combo that I have been looking for. My neighbor is always coming to me because of my insight and dissecting dreams. So now have this book and my own cards to help me.

BUY IT, IT IS WORTH IT IF YOU ARE ANYTHING LIKE ME.

Well written, well organized and beautifully illustrated. The information about dreams and merging it with Tarot cards gives more insight into the issues and meaning in dreams. Easy to ready and easy to apply. The glossory of symbols and their meaning in the back simplifies looking up symbols.
Each Tarot cards is illustrated with explanations. One Tarot card per page. This one is a keeper with extra editions to give away to special friends.

My favorite part of this book is the description of the cards, including the symbolism of the numbers, and especially the possibllties for expanding my sense of what my dreams could be showing me. Things I'd not thought of but which help a lot. I also really enjoyed the sample dreams that illustrate the different spreads to use. I keep the book and cards right by my dream journal.

What's unique about this book is Julie Gillentine's blending of Tarot with dream interpretation - two disciplines that aren't generally presented together. Julie outlines a simple system to decode the messages of our dreams using the Tarot. The dream card spreads are easy to understand, and her descriptions of the Tarot cards are helpful within the context of dream interpretation.
