Description


“This book will help you use tarot as an interactive roadmap for your own archetypal journey.” —from the new foreword by Mary K. Greer, author of Tarot for Your Self and many other books on tarot

In this new edition of the classic work on Tarot and Jungian symbolism, Sallie Nichols demonstrates how to approach any Tarot deck via the archetypes and Jung's methods of word association, active imagination, and dialogue. Nichols explores symbolic meanings relevant to everyone and lessons regarding the human condition, psychological states, and attitudes that can lead to genuine personal insight.

Through analogies to the humanities, mythology, and the graphic arts, the significance of the cards is related to personal growth and what Jung termed "individuation." The Major Arcana becomes a map of life, and the hero's journey becomes something that each individual can relate to one's personal life.

First published nearly forty years ago as Jung and Tarot, this edition includes a new in-depth foreword by Mary K. Greer, one of today's most trusted Tarot authorities.

About the Author


Sallie Nichols taught Symbolism of the Tarot for trainees at the C.G . Jung Institute, Los Angeles, and lectured frequently on this subject under Jungian auspices in San Francisco, San Diego, Orange and Los Angeles. In a series of seminars entitled A Tarot Trip into Jung's Psychology presented at the Theosophical Center in Hollywood and elsewhere, she successfully introduced both the Tarot and Jung's concept of the archetypes to audiences relatively unfamiliar with either subject. A longtime student of Jung's psychology, Sallie Nichols had the good fortune to study at the C.G. Jung Institute, Zurich, while Jung was still alive and active.
