A great reference book for framing how to look at a question or problem. I just love getting a new deck and taking as long as it takes to go through each image on each card and untangle all the knots.

I do not believe in divination and honestly I read this book because I loved "The Holy Mountain" and "El Topo" and I wanted to learn more about the underlying symbolism of the Major Arcana. So, to say this book surprised me is a bit of an understatement. Yet despite that limitation, he is also able to convincingly explore how tarot can be used to psychological and spiritual introspection. Though there are times he veers towards interpretations that seem either too Freudian or mystical to keep in line with some of his more "no-nonsense" passages, the book overall is highly insightful and interesting, and worth reading for anyone who is even casually interested in the tarot, but not afraid of reading through alchemical, Buddhist, Daoist, and Judeo-Christian analyses.
I am a professional Tarot reader but had never studied The MarseillesTarot one of the oldest editions specifically which Jodorowsky works with in this book. I had loved his films El Topo and the Magic Mountain years ago, as he is fascinated with archetypes and that is what the Tarot is. The fountain of archetypal knowledge and symbolism it is virtually the Unconscious itself.
These are very This book came highly recommended from a friend of mine who is an amazing artist and reads tarot herself. These are very much his own chanellings as he describes each major tarot card as he embodies them. It is very much his system. There is so much nuance and triggers to the imagination in his book. He describes very subtle markings in each card which would usually go unnoticed.
He pairs the cards in a different Numerology than the system I had previously been using. There is so much eye opening content in this book. He goes through each of the 78 cards in the deck, with many layouts and questions.. His life is karmically connected to the Tarot and its ancient wisdom and knowledge.
An excellent book, very in depth. VEry different. HIghly recommended, you may uses it as a reference book.
