Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
04/15/2014
Louis (Tarot Plain and Simple) takes a deep dive into varying conceptual systems within the imagery and symbolism of the 78-card tarot deck used for divination and fortune- telling. He uses tarot's correspondences with astrology, numerology, the I Ching, and Aristotelian elements to deconstruct each suit, number, character, or scene's potential meaning. Throughout, the author references historical interpretations with special attention to the teachings of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, the Edwardian occultists who conferred the modern and currently used attributions to each card of the deck. Explications by both contemporary readers and masters, such as A.E. Waite and Aleister Crowley, are woven into a rich set of associations and meanings with room left for intuition and personal interpretation of tarot metaphor. As a bonus, a full chapter is dedicated to a thoughtful discussion of "reversals," one of the more hotly debated aspects of a tarot reading. VERDICT Well researched and organized and offering a fantastic card-by-card appendix, this title will satisfy readers of tarot and divination systems who are looking for depth.—Janet Tapper, Univ. of Western States Lib., Portland, OR
