The Tarot, a western mystical tradition of divination, meditation, and visualization, has attracted devoted followers for centuries. In The Tarot Workbook we find a fascinating overview of the Tarot including its history, the meaning of the individual cards of the Major and Minor Arcana, the symbolism of the four elements: Fire, Water, Air and Earth, and the special qualities of the four suits: Wands, Cups, Swords and Pentacles. This illustrated exploration also delves into the connections between the Tarot and the mystical Kabbalah and explains how to deal and read the cards in well-known formats like the Celtic Cross, the Gypsy spread, the Three Aces spread, and the Seven-card spread. The Tarot Workbook is appropriate for beginners but also rich enough for devotees wishing to expand their knowledge of the subject.
