A must read for anyone studying Qabalah and/or Tarot,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Qabalistic Tarot: A Textbook of Mystical Philosophy (Hardcover)
The first thing I thought when I saw this book was "Man is this the same guy who did the GD Deck? I'm not sure I wanna read a whole book by him." But having read all the rave reviews on here I decided to give it a go. I'm glad I did, as the book is surprisingly deep.
The book is basically about the Qabalah, and how the Tarot ties in to the Qabalah. Wang talks alot about the Qabalah, and then starts tying it in to the cards. He uses his own deck (unfortunately), Crowley's Thoth deck, the Rider-Waite deck, and the Marsailles deck to go through their meanings in relation to the Qabalistic Tree of Life. If you are studying High Magick, it's a great book to get because you are essentially killing many birds with one stone. You learn alot about Qabalah and Tarot, you learn about 4 specific Tarot decks at once, and you learn about Astrology among other things.
