5.0 out of 5 stars A lucid journey through the Major Arcana 23 Sept. 2015
By Russert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
So pleasantly surprised by this book. By far offers the best explanation of the journey through the Major Arcana of any other book that I've read. I especially appreciate how lucid the explanations of each card are -- something that can be hard to come by in books about Tarot (in my experience). Wirth also spends the entire first part of the book breaking down some of the mathematics behind the Major Arcana. He provides a ton of diagrams and tables to illustrate that there is not just one way in which to weigh the cards within the Major Arcana against each other for a great understanding of each, but that there are many different ways in which you can do that. This, to me, was probably the coolest part of the book, because it shows you that there are so many different ways of understanding each of the cards -- all dependent upon how and which cards you're comparing/contrasting together. I return to this book all of the time for readings to help me orient myself. Took my knowledge of the Major Arcana to a whole new level. Those interested in Joseph Campbell's work would certainly find this book of great interest also (Hero's journey), and also those interested in Non-duality. I wish Wirth's other books were available in English, otherwise I'd buy them all today. Profound, awesome.

5.0 out of 5 stars The true Ozzy tarot 15 Dec. 2016
By VITA5 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Interesting text from the philosophy of Oswald Wirth. He only depicted the 22 major arcana. If you see a 78 card deck, it was not drawn by Mr. Wirth.
The book contains his 22 major arcana, note that his deck has people of color.

It is an interesting read. I am glad that I purchased this deck/book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Way excellent! For those who are attracted to the French hermetic tradition, this, along with Papus' Tarot of the Bohemians, is the best!
