We can best use the High Priestess's passivity as a balance to the ontward-leeking attitude of the Magician, but many people find the passive side extremely attractive. But without the ability to blend in the active force ,of the Magician" the High Priestess's sense of hamumy becomes swept away. This may very well be true. It is precisely to avoid this iriner voice that many people never rest from action and movement. Get A Copy.

Tarot of Ceremonial Magick: In fact, it recaptures the true magical tradition of the Tarot as few decks have ever done. Tabatha Cicero. This powerful and innovative new tarot is really two decks in one. It is the only deck of its kind to contain two separate and distinct tarot decks in one pack of cards, each with its own set of imagery, card interpretations, card spreads, and magical uses.

The companion guide included in this kit contains complete instructions for working with all aspects of this system, including divinatory card meanings and spreads, and complete instructions for Enochian magick, pyramid skrying, and Tattvic work. This deck does it all.
They have been especially created for the exploration of the dark side of the psyche. For anyone setting out to explore their Shadow this is a perfect gateway and detailed instruction manual.

In addition to the exposition of the Major and Minor Shadow Arcana, it features full colour plates of the cards and extensive ideas for exploring the nightside of the Tree.

However, 78 Degrees is more of a beginner's book and does not delve deeply into the relation between tarot and qabalah or any other system for that matter. For novices, this is a great introductory text to whet the appetite and to inspire a reader towards deeper research and I'm surprised that it is being marketed as an in depth or advanced study. As an academic and someone who has studied the same topics Pollack engages - depth psychology, mythology, world religions etcetera - I found the content lacking and far from in depth.
Pollack frequently laces her commentary with sweeping generalizations or random facts about the human condition without contextualizing them nor addressing their deep complexity.
She'll derive quick conclusions about Western cultural values like free will and individualism without bothering to really analyze them. While there isn't any need to have extensive footnotes for any of these statements, writing about them as if they can be satisfactorily explained so simplistically and apolitically is problematic for anyone approaching with a more academic mindset or desiring a more substantial, challenging text.
However, the watering down of complex spiritual and psychological issues is something of a disappointment. Despite this, the book does have many strengths. For all its oversimplicity, Pollack does not fall into the trap of writing in an airy-fairy touchy-feely manner that plagues many a psuedo psychological text about "new age" topics.
She takes the reader through the esoteric symbols of each card in the Rider Waite deck, explains them clearly and grounds them with practical examples. This works best with the minor arcana, in which she is more focused in her writing and does not dabble so much in other systems like depth psychology.
Pollack also makes many notable card comparisons, and is a keen observer of structures and relationships - something that is often lacking in many tarot books.
Her sample readings are also great tutorials, especially for beginners. The last section of the text devoted to learning to read tarot spreads is probably the strongest part of the book and filled with insightful, personal observations.
Overall, I have mixed feelings about this book. Although it may be established as a "Tarot Bible", I feel it is too shallow for serious study or more advanced students. In comparison to other works I've read by Pollack, I know she is capable of something far more profound, demanding and stimulating. A former moderator of the Astrology forum at Aeclectic Tarot, Isthmus has studied tarot and other esoteric systems since This appears to be a reprint of the version by Element, a Harper Collins imprint.
The Major and Minor Arcana have been compiled in one volume originally they were in separate volumes , revised and updated, with a new preface. Rachel brings with her the wisdom of years of scholarly, as well as hands on, research. In this book are presented the many layers that is Tarot: In her new as of preface, Rachel speaks about her introduction to the Tarot, and the individuals that she saw taking the Tarot in new directions such as Mary Greer, James Wanless, Angeles Arrien, Gail Fairfield.
Gestures and body language of the figures are explored with a new profundity.
Roles become more fluid, and invite the reader to enter the scenes and situations with greater immediacy. All this gives extra flavor and texture, as well as depth. I had a copy of this book years ago when I first started reading Tarot cards, but it got lost during one of several cross-country moves. I'm so happy that I was able to find it still in print on Amazon and purchase a new copy, because it is by far the most complete book of card meanings that I've read!
Whatever level of Tarot knowledge you have, this book will offer lots of food for thought and important information. It is not a quick keyword reference book, however; there are plenty of books on the market for that. Pollack's book is an in-depth analysis of the imagery, esoteric meanings and background, etc.
In my opinion, it is one of the best tarot books out there. Though it is not light reading, it is completely accessible and is certain to add more understanding and depth to anyone's appreciation of and work with the Tarot.
It is a must-have for any Tarot library! I read the entire book in three days, it is so captivating. I have been reading cards for 15 years, reading this really took me through the journey so seamlessly, I felt like I had a brand new understanding of the Tarot.
