Tarot and the Archetypal Journey: The Jungian Path from Darkness to Light

by Sallie Nichols Author

In this fascinating work, author Sallie Nichols connects the practice of tarot to the tradition of mythology and the study of psychology. Using psychiatrist Carl Jung's concept of individuation, Nichols relates each card in the Major and Minor Arcana to the user's personal growth and sense of themselves. Viewed in such a way, the process of reading tarot becomes a process of uncovering truths about yourself along your journey towards becoming your most authentic self. For those interested in psychology and in using their tarot practice to dig deeper into their own mental architecture, this book is a powerful resource.
