Publisher's Synopsis

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.

Seventy-Eight 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.

Reviews
"78 Degrees of Wisdom is a card by card study of the history, myths, psychology, symbols and deeper meaning of the tarot. Serious yet interesting, this book by Rachel Pollack should be an essential part of every tarot library."       ~Aeclectic Tarot
