Description

The real meat of this book is the individual card descriptions. Tarot Mysteries is truly an eye opener. I never thought that the tarot cards could range over so many fascinating topics. An excellent and informative read.

The real meat of this book is the individual card descriptions. The black&white illustrations of the cards are pretty atrocious, but they get the idea across. more importantly, you get 1 to 3 pages of info about each card, describing what is traditionally depicted on it, magickal & astrological correspondences, and what the symbols are supposed to mean.

This is the 3rd book I am buying. I lent the others out & never got them back. LOL highly recommended especially if you read both the Thoth & Rider decks.

I started collecting Tarot cards. I bought this book in the attempt to understand the basis for Tarot. Tarot can be useful as psychological device to help you understand yourself. If you are really interested in understanding the mysteries of the universe, I suggest you read Lisa Randall, Steve Wienberg, or Alan Guth.

The first few chapters on the history of the Tarot, like any attempt at a "history of the Tarot," are a mixture of fact and speculation. You don't need to read these chapters; they are unimportant. The section about the Grail Hallows was completely irrelevant and sounded made-up. The real meat of this book is the individual card descriptions. The black&white illustrations of the cards are pretty atrocious, but they get the idea across ... more importantly, you get 1 to 3 pages of info about each card, describing what is traditionally depicted on it, magickal & astrological correspondences, and what the symbols are supposed to mean. He also gives a basic divinatory interpretation for each card (with a seperate interpretation for the "inversed" or upside-down card, which I use.) Dee's writing is very straightforward and easy to understand. I have checked his correspondences and his interpretations against other sources, and they are correct. In actual practice I have found Dee's interpretations to be more useful and accurate than Waite or Crowley, and thus _Tarot Mysteries_ has become THE book I turn to first if I have a question.

This is a book that should not have been written. Frankly, more accurate and honest information about Tarot symbolism and history is available for free on the Web. By careful omission of many facts, Dee "proves" the occult origins of both the Trumps and the playing cards (Minors). That there is no bibliography, footnotes, endnotes, or citations of any sort should warn you, this is fantasy going after your money.
