Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom: A Book of Tarot – Rachel Pollack

Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom: A Book of Tarot - Rachel PollackA top tarotist’s secrets to personal growth, one card at a time. The two volumes of SeventyEight Degrees of Wisdom have inspired a whole generation of tarot students. It has often been described by readers, booksellers, and teachers as the “Bible of tarot readers.” It is also often cited as one of the landmark books in modern tarot, and it helped to launch the “Tarot Renaissance” of the 1980s.

The two texts one for The Major Arcana and one for The Minor Arcana appear together in this volume, which is a reissue of the 1998 edition first published by Thorsons. SeventyEight Degrees of Wisdom draws on mythology and esoteric traditions and delves deeply into the symbolism and ideas of each card. It also gives the cards a modern psychological slant based on the pictures rather than a system of occult symbolism. This endlessly useful reference tool provides a concise history of tarot, introduces common spreads, and is a clear and readable book for both the beginning and advanced tarot student.
