5.0 out of 5 stars Archetypes in depth
This is an excellent book for anyone who wants to get the full range of meanings about any card. She not only covers the Jungian ideas, but a full range of other possibilities as well, with many pages of information on each card of the Major Arcana.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring boring
I found this book to lack hands-on-doing and practical info about tarot. Disapointed, thought it would be far more interesting.

This review is from: Jung and Tarot: An Archetypal Journey (Paperback)
This is an excellent book for anyone who wants to get the full range of meanings about any card. She not only covers the Jungian ideas, but a full range of other possibilities as well, with many pages of information on each card of the Major Arcana. She shows a variety of deck images for each card, as well as other graphics, including paintings and photos of ancient artifacts that pertain to the archetype being discussed. A very valuable addition to anyone's tarot library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extrememly insightful, 14 Aug 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Jung and Tarot: An Archetypal Journey (Paperback)
Sallie Nichols provides a fresh new perspective for the Tarot reader in this book. Rather than merely showing a card with its explanation next to it (as is done with many books on the subject), Sallie goes into depths on the Jungian theories behind each of the Major Arcana cards. The insights dare to be different without breaking any rules, and gives you a better understanding of the archetypes at work in your life. Very interesting, and definitely worth recommending to Tarot readers (or Jungian theorists) of all levels.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for anyone interested in the human psyche, 25 Jan 2007
This review is from: Jung and Tarot: An Archetypal Journey (Paperback)
An absolute must for anyone who is a serious practitioner of the Tarot. It gives great insights about the major aracana as archetypes from someone who has obviously been practising the Tarot for a considerable number of years. This is a woman who has a considerable command of her subject and a deep appreciation of the Jungian unconscious, a deep and rich repository of wisdom and knowledge. This is the beautiful culmination of years of work. And there is also lots of lots of information on the history and symbols of each major arcana card. Even though this was written some time ago it is timeless in its understanding of the deep processes that make us human.

This review is from: Jung and Tarot: An Archetypal Journey (Paperback)
Written in easy to read shortish chapters, Sallie Nicholls explores each card of the Major Arcana in terms of Jungian archetypes with great success and convincingly. This book works on several levels, from personal identification to more abstract perceptions of each archetype. Illustrated throughout with numerous art examples of each card as an archetype and from other styles of Tarot card.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful insights into the Major Arcana, 19 Mar 2004
This review is from: Jung and Tarot: An Archetypal Journey (Paperback)
Don't be put off by the word 'Jung' in the title. This wonderful book provides a detailed exploration of each of the cards in the major arcana without getting bogged down in Jungian terms. Sallie Nicholls treats the cards as a metaphysical journey of individuation, from the innocence of the Fool, to the spiritual unity of the World. Tarot experts and newcomers alike will gain much from Nicholls' down-to-earth exposition of each of the cards, which includes examination of the mythical origin of the cards as well as a discussion of their relationships to the Jungian archetypes. The book is extremely well written and enjoyable. One note - there is so much information in it that I recommend taking it slowly. I took a whole year to read it, reading a chapter a fortnight, then digesting it slowly. A bargain at the price, too.
