Publisher's Summary

Essence of the Tarot explores the 22 cards of the Major Arcana - the spiritual foundation of the Tarot. Taking the listener on a journey from ancient Egypt - the birthplace of the Tarot - to modern times, Essence of the Tarot provides an understanding of each card in a way that can be related to everyday life and enhance your spiritual journey. Exploring the ancient wisdom of the Tarot from a practical perspective makes Essence of the Tarot accessible to anyone seeking solutions to life's daily problems and dilemmas, interlacing ancient wisdom with modern insight. The Ancient Wisdom section delves into the major themes of each card or archetype, offering insight from varied sources, including astrology, mythology, the Kabbalah, and modern psychology, and focuses on the more meditative and spiritual aspect of each card. Modern Reflections brings this knowledge into current times through illuminating stories, pop-culture references, and a modern world perspective than makes each card become real and alive in the 21st century.

Beautifully written & incredibly informative

The narrator's voice was mesmerizing as the author's words painted pictures of my own life in relation to each of the major arcana. Couldn't stop listening to it, it helped me discover aspects of myself as well as learn about the cards and their meanings.

Very informative

Great book to broaden understanding with real life examples given. There is a lot here, will require a few revisits to glean the best from it.
