In the tradition of The Alchemist, Jonathan Livingston Seagull and The Wizard of Earthsea...

Originally written for Tarot practitioners, The Fool's Journey through the Tarot Major Arcana has also found a wider audience amongst those committed to personal growth.

This extensively edited 3rd Edition 2018 focuses on Follin's journey on the mystic's path to knowledge through his direct experience with each of the major Arcana archetypes.

Review quote

"In October of 2009 Carl Jung's Red Book was released for the first time. Chronicling the great psychoanalyst's venture into his own subconscious, revealing fractal universes and personifications of unconscious material. A whole new world of it's own. One that is not unlike the universal symbology embodied in the Major Arcana of the Tarot. Noel Eastwood's delightful book, "The Fool's Journey through the Tarot Major Arcana," is unlike any other tool for learning about this centuries old symbology and how it can be meditated upon, and used to relate to the workings of our daily lives, and our own subconscious. It is a free-flowing, progressive adventure of the Fool through all of the other cards. Taking the simple Spirit he was conceived with, the Fool advances as he encounters each force and personality. A true "Hero's Journey," and one that every spiritual adventurist will love and recognize. The story sucked me in, and only spat me out at the end. I recommend this series as a companion to the works of Carl Jung, Anna Wise, Joseph Campbell, Paul Foster Case, J. Nigro Sansonese, and my own." FK

"I've read many of Noel's books on Astrology and tarot. I'm always amazed at how easily his writings lend themselves to being transformative to readers at any point along the Tao.
His writings present the reader with a systematic approach to psychological and spiritual growth little matched in understanding and ease of use, than by other writers I can think of.
If you are looking for a place to begin or enrich your journey, I'd recommend you follow the Fool in his journey through the Tarot." MR

"What a wonderful way to bring an easy and deep understanding of the major arcana. This book was enlightening and entertaining from start to finish. I'm definitely not a tarot student, or teacher. Far from it. But this book makes me want to learn. A whole new world has opened up for me. It's an odd feeling having epiphanies as I read, but that happened. Beautifully written and drawn, The Fool's Journey is a keeper!" KM

"This easy to understand text is not in any way simplistic; it's filled with deep meaning. This book will assist in your inward journey. Use it along with meditation to reach a better understanding of yourself and others." MR

"I really loved this book, I will be buying book 2 and 3 of this series for sure. As I was reading it helped me to reflect on my life and when I've been at each card and gave a lot of deeper meanings and shed some light on some of the cards I don't love to see when pulling for myself. not only that it truly kept me captivated and interested to see how Follin felt after getting to the world. Can't wait for his journey through the pentacles." C

"A magical journey through the tarot! Delightful to read - also, makes the tarot cards easier to learn/remember. I highly recommend this series - whether you are a beginner or advanced tarot reader." AC
