Tarot Time Traveller uses history as a template to explore all of the ways that Tarot can be used in your life.
In the story of Tarot, nothing is as it first appears to be. Throughout the generations, personal relationships, esoteric practices, and cultural beliefs have blended together to form Tarot’s many layers of meaning and mystery. Join authors Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin as they share reading methods, card meanings, and spread ideas based on the most important developments in the history of Tarot. Along the way, you’ll witness the creation of some of the most influential decks and meet the artists, mystics, teachers, occultists, and writers behind them.
Relying on historical usage and writings, the authors create new practices without being bound by the past. They guide you through the ages, examining each era thoughtfully and thoroughly. You’ll learn Tarot as it developed, from the earliest cartomancy to the modern 78-card deck, and develop within yourself a deep appreciation for the meaning and importance of the practice.
When you delve into Tarot’s fascinating back story, you open yourself to unique perspectives, helping you develop your own interpretations of the cards – even if they don’t always match the current era’s ideas.
