Description

Gaining insight into our deeper selves through the use of divination tools to help decide future actions has preoccupied mankind since ancient times. In Europe, cards which became known as Tarot have been used to map the soul and predict the future since the 16th century.
The 78 cards in the Tarot deck each has its own imagery, symbolism and story. This beautiful hand-bound edition showcases each card from the Rider-Waite set, the one most commonly used by Tarot readers. Practitioners believe that the 22 Major Arcana cards represent life's karmic and
spiritual lessons, and the 56 Minor Arcana cards reflect the trials and tribulations of everyday life.
Tarot offers an elegantly presented, concise guide to the 78 cards, from number 0 The Fool - who represents unlimited potential, through The Hermit - who represents a break from everyday life, to number 21 The World - which indicates a sense of wholeness, completion and fulfilment.
