This marvelously lucid book makes accessible the practical use of the tarot in daily living. Using the new universal Rider-Waite deck as a basis, D'Agostino delineates the meditative symbolism that is inherent in each of the 22 cards of the Major or Greater Arcana.
The latter portion of the book deals with the use of tarot as a means of divination and includes brief definitions of the qualities of the 78 cards that comprise the Greater and Lesser Arcana. He outlines the ancient Celtic method of divination and the 21-card spread, and concludes with a discussion on the Qabalah, the Tree of Life, and Western civilisation's present preoccupation with new rituals, cults and gurus,
D'Agostino's insights into the tarot and its use as a tool for enlightening daily meditation make this book a valuable addition to tarot literature.
