Originally published in 1984, Tarot for Your Self is widely considered to be classic in its field, being the first to promote reading the cards for personal insight. With a combined emphasis on self-teaching techniques and personal insight, author Mary K. Greer brings together journal writing, mythology, psychology, self-help, crystals, channeling, astrology, numerology, art and occult metaphysics – all explored and integrated with the Tarot. This new revised edition also features expanded interpretations for the Minor Arcana, the reversed meanings of all 78 cards, information on Shadow/Teacher cards, and a revised historical survey of the Tarot. There is a wealth of practical ways given to help establish and develop a relationship with the cards – using, for example, meditations, rituals, mandalas, visualizations and affirmations. Accessible and comprehensive, Tarot for Your Self is an excellent workbook for anyone beginning their journey into using the tarot for personal transformation and development.
