This Tarot Journey To Self Awareness Is Organized Into Three Parts For Easy Reference

Part One: The Major Arcana is a profound journey into the depths of our psyche. By illuminating the pure forms of our life experiences through archetypes, it allows us to perceive psychological truths. As we navigate the mysterious realms of the Major Arcana, we discover the path to unity, bringing resolution to the fragmented aspects of our existence. Perhaps the innocence depicted by the Fool is not lost, but rather a powerful force waiting to be reclaimed. Let the Major Arcana guide you on a transformative quest to rediscover the essence of your being.

Part Two: Continuing our journey through the Tarot, we enter the realm of the Minor Arcana. Here, hidden meanings unfold as we delve into the intricate tapestry of the cards. Through interpretation, meditation, and insightful readings, the images come alive, revealing a myriad of human experiences. Individually, the cards of the Minor Arcana weave a grand panorama before us, illustrating the richness of life. Yet, when joined with the archetypal Majors, they expand our understanding, guiding us towards a profound knowledge of the ever-changing wonders of existence. Embrace the Minor Arcana as they illuminate the path to deeper enlightenment and harmonize with the essence of our being.

Part Three: Readings transport us on a profound journey of self-discovery. They reveal that each card holds a unique essence, neither inherently good nor bad, but rather a reflection of the present moment. As we embark on the art of giving readings, we connect with our instinctive intuition, allowing the imagery to speak volumes. With every symbol and archetype, we become attuned to the power of each card, embracing the transformative magic that lies within. Open your heart to the wisdom of the pictures and let each card whisper its truths, guiding your path towards deeper understanding and enlightenment.

Gain A Deeper Understanding Of The Tarot

Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom, known as the “Tarot Reader’s Bible,” is an indispensable addition to every Tarot enthusiast’s library. Exploring the profound symbolism, mythology, astrology, numerology, history, and psychology behind each card, Rachel Pollack delves into the multifaceted meanings using the beloved Rider Waite deck. Whether you are well-versed in Tarot or just embarking on your spiritual journey, this book offers invaluable knowledge and understanding. But it goes beyond mere predictions; it unravels the hidden truths of the self and unveils the wondrous spirituality of life. Participate in this captivating journey of discovery as Rachel Pollack delves ever deeper into the mysteries of the Tarot.

Rachel Pollack (1945-2023) illuminated the path of Tarot, leaving an indelible mark on the modern world.

Her groundbreaking book, Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom, continues to guide seekers with its timeless wisdom. Known as the “Bible of Tarot,” it has never ceased to captivate readers since its first publication in 1980.

A true luminary, Pollack’s influence extended beyond Tarot, resonating through the realms of science fiction, fantasy, and comics. As a trailblazer within the transgender community, she fearlessly paved the way, creating the first transgender superhero in her acclaimed run of Doom Patrol issues. With a remarkable repertoire of fiction and non-fiction works, including A Walk Through the Forest of Souls and Unquenchable Fire, Pollack’s words effortlessly transport readers to captivating realms.

The mastermind behind The Shining Tribe Tarot and the visionary behind other remarkable decks like The Vertigo Tarot and Salvador Dali’s Tarot, Pollack’s creative brilliance knows no bounds. For over three decades, she shared her wisdom as a revered educator at the esteemed Omega Institute. Rachel Pollack’s legacy shines brighter than ever, forever shaping the worlds she touched.

Seventy-Eight Degrees Of Wisdom comes in three formats — Paperback, Kindle, and Audiobook. I got the audiobook, thinking this would work for me while I’m relaxing. I can also listen while I’m studying the Tarot cards. It seems like a winning arrangement! Yet I know how some people love having a paperback copy while others prefer their Kindle — of course, use what is best for you and your continued Tarot study.

I hope this was informative and helpful.

I do thank you for stopping by!
