Inspiring Marseilles handbook,
This review is from: Way of Tarot: The Spiritual Teacher in the Cards (Paperback)
Jodorowsky is a creative film maker and artist whose enthusiasm for the Marseilles Tarot shines through these pages. The Marseilles was the first deck I possessed in 1969 and so I very much enjoyed this book, as I use my pack often. At times the book verges on the obsessional, and occasionally there are occasionally Infelicitous translations, but students of tarot can still learn from the author's insights and reading methods. There are few resources in print which help readers use a pip minor arcana, and this book will help them. The lack of an academic rigour which a previous reviewer observes is more than made up for by the respect in which Jodorowsky holds this tarot: when somene embodies a tradition and sees the cosmic blueprint so clearly, much can be forgiven. In an age when tarot is both quick and ubiquitous, when its artwork is frequently computer-generated or digital, it is a sacred craft to use an ancient tarot like the Marseilles. Jodorowsky's Way of Tarot reveals the structure of the temple of tarot and invites us to enter in.
