New edition of the classic introduction to the tarot as a system of initiation and self-discovery.


Originally published as The Element Tarot Handbook and later republished by Watkins Books in 2002 as Initiation into the Tarot, this modern classic sets out how the tarot can be utilised as a system of initiation and self-discovery, drawing on its correspondences with classic archetypes, the four elements and the Western Qabalah. Through plentiful exercises, symbols and mystical schema, the reader is drawn deeper into the mysteries of the tarot not as a fortune-telling tool, but as a way of accessing profound spiritual truth and self-discovery. For those interested in learning more about the mystical and spiritual use of the tarot, this book cannot be recommended enough.


London: Watkins Publishing, 2022. Paperback, 192 pages. New.
