Annoyingly I bought this book twice first as a paperback & found as it's so heavy I couldn't hold it so bought the Kindle version This tome comes in at a hefty 874 pages mainly because the author is so verbose in an attempt to ensure the reader makes no assumptions on her meaning or purpose It starts off on completely the wrong tack instead of positively explaining the authors approach of tarot analytics she negatively tells you what it's not about again to dispel any assumptions you my have made about Tarot before you read the book That negativity then sets the tone for the rest of the book as far as I got any wayMost annoyingly I read the Tarot as she suggests with a Jungian psychologicalarchetypal approach to symbols & perspectives & I was looking forward to a good read which this is not as it continually repeats I would recommend it for beginners except it is way too daunting & empty in it's verbosity it would probably put them off the Tarot rather than encourage I'm a regular reader for myself & others and would peg my experience & knowledge as medium but I gave up with this book on the card meanings Too many are obscure & irrelevant in detail to have any modern practical approach For instance The Empress card meaning has a whole lot of history about King Philip IV of Spain for it's meaning That is a very subjective approach for the meaning of the card & the history of Tarot as well For me it is completely missing the point especially for Tarot in everyday useIt's widely known Jung was interested in the I Ching and wrote extensively about it I was hoping for of a cross referencing with this work with the descriptions of the author mixing WesternEastern mysticism It was mentioned briefly with i energy & may have come much later but I've had enough of this book already Sadly I don't think I'll even be using it for reference as card meanings are summed up far better & practically elsewhereSo I suggest this is a book for an intellectual approach to study Tarot not for someone wanting experience with the cards in a practical way in their daily lives For me this book is a Dust Catcher for the library rather than a Dream Catcher for life I gave it 2 stars rather than 1 as the author's intentions are obviously in the right place If you want a practical & meaningful Jungian approach to Tarot that can easily be applied to everyday life I have not yet found one better than 78 Degrees of Wisdom by Rachel Pollack

First of all absolutely none of the tables were entirely visible on my Kindle So technically speaking this is not something I'd recommend Also some paragraphs were rather unnaturally broken and separatedAs far as the content goes if Rachel Pollack's word salad 78 Degrees of Wisdom is the Finnegan's Wake of tarot books this book is Infinite Jest and neither of those are compliments Wen is incredibly ambitious and basically shows of for one thousand pages hoping the historical references and name dropping would blind you to how vacuous and empty her erudition is She invents controversies that don't exist such as the yinyang controversy for the emperor card which perhaps is a thing on tarot instagrambut is certainly not a thing in serious literature Then her descriptions of cards will help no one and least of all tarot beginners She makes connections that basically demonstrate why people laugh at esoteric studies such as her connecting the high priestess with the Japanese word for lion or tiger or whatever Once you make that connection you might as well interpret the card as telling you to eat ramen noodles because she has long hairShe objects to fortune telling and divination yet literally every example she gives is precisely of that She flaunts her partial knowledge of European history yet she fails to notice elementary Biblical and historical references on cards such as the death card or four of swords etc She writes about disproven fringe theories on the origins of tarot which do no one any good especially with the amount of research done on how tarot cards were invented and why I like that she has a very precise tone and that she structures things on charts and tables which I wasn't able to see fully because the Kindle book didn't show them but that's not what makes a serious researcher You must select what's meaningful and not include every crazy fringe idea out there Not everything works and not every approach is eually good and until that is part of tarot studies don't be surprised that no one will look at it twice no matter how useful a tool it might beI sound a little angry in this review and I guess I am I enjoyed reading it and debating her in my mind while I was reading it but if this is meant for rational audiences and if it's meant to attract new people to tarot or to introduce tarot to beginners then it's an abject failure If she would rework the book and clean up the content shorten it and for the love of whatever you believe in find an editor for it then it could be a decent overview of different approaches to interpretation of tarot cards But in this form it's a rough draft in need of workI don't have the problem with ambition or the scope but with the sloppy approach bad logic and anything goes masked as rigorous thinking
