Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom: A Tarot Journey to Self-Awareness

by Rachel Pollack Author

When this book was first published nearly 40 years ago, it became an instant classic and inspired a whole generation of tarot students. Rather than merely providing a catalogue of esoteric symbolism, this book offers a modern psychological interpretation of the symbols on each card, drawing on mythology and the long history and tradition of tarot to give each symbol more specific and thorough meanings. Including a concise history of tarot, an introduction to common varieties of tarot cards, and offering an endlessly useful reference point for beginning and advanced tarot students alike, Seventy-Eight Degrees to Wisdom has been called the 'bible of tarot books' with good reason.
