Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom: A Book of Tarot, by Rachel Pollack
This classic book is a complete but concise guide to the origins, meaning and psychological applications of the Tarot. Its aim is to demystify and to make Tarot symbolism an effective and accessible means of self-enlightenment.
One of my all-time favourite books, and the one that really opened up the world of tarot for me and helped me to dive deeper into the cards, this wonderful book by much-loved and highly-respected tarot veteran Rachel Pollack is a must-read for any tarot reader. It can be read cover-to-cover as an in-depth analysis of tarot’s system, themes and uses, or it can be used as a guidebook for looking up individual card meanings.
