Tarot and Individuation

By: Irene Gad

SKU: 0892541105 Categories: , ,


Focusing on the major arcana of the tarot, Dr. Gad suggests that the first ten trumps represent the descent of the Spirit into matter (recalling the cabalistic Flash of Lighting). The following eleven trumps describe the difficult journey back (the cabbalistic Path of the Serpent) to merge with the Source.
As esoteric as it sounds, this cycle is no more than the individuation process, a task to which each of us is called. Amplifying the message of each trump with Jungian, cabalistic, and alchemical interpretations, Dr. Gad enables you to use the tarot as a map for individuation and restoration of harmony, and brings you simultaneous awareness of your uniqueness and humanity–that you are not alone in your experiences on the path. By interweaving tarot, alchemy, and cabala, this book gives you a solid understanding of each tradition. Included is an exciting section on divination, compiling 72 spreads so you can select the layout appropriate to any occasion or match the pattern that best corresponds to questions that may be answered using this imagery and symbolism.
