The Tarot Handbook: Practical Applications of Ancient Symbols, UPDATED EDITION, by Angeles Arrien, is a significant contribution in the field of tarot literature; demonstrating how the time-honored system of tarot is a visual as well as symbolic map of consciousness, and a source of ancient wisdom.
The Tarot Handbook supplies several charts, spreads, illustrations of the Thoth Tarot, and other personal and spiritual development tools.
An anthropologist who specializes in cross-cultural myths, the author demonstrates how tarot's 78 figures are archetypes residing prominently in the collective human experience. He persuades the reader to rely on universal principles instead of cultural bias when interpreting the tarot, thereby opening inner gateways to insight and deepening awareness of the human psyche.
