What happens inside your brain when you look at a tarot card? How do you attribute significance to symbols? In this book, Siddharth Ramakrishnan answers these questions and more as he explores the neuroscience behind intuition and proves that tarot readers aren't just making up their results.

Learn how your body and brain work together to process images, attach meaning, and elicit emotional responses, laying the groundwork for prediction. Filled with digestible explanations and dozens of exercises, this full-color, illustrated book teaches you what intuition is scientifically and how to enhance it for more accurate readings.

"The Neuroscience of Tarot brilliantly bridges scientific rigor and mystical intuition. This unique and important book demystifies the complexities of neuroscience, presenting them in a manner accessible to all readers."
—Mat Auryn, author of Psychic Witch and Mastering Magic
