Using Jungian archetypes, the I-Ching, and color/number combinations, Hamaker-Zondag shows you how to interpret the tarot without having to refer to a guidebook for definitions. Her methods will help you use the tarot to understand your personal inner changes and their potential manifestations in daily life. She also makes an engaging comparison of the imagery in various decks, so that you can choose the deck that you like the best.

Are you interested in the tarot? Do you want more from it than just a “reading of the moment”? Karen Hamaker-Zondag gives you just that. You’ll learn how to look at the symbolism that has been used for centuries, how the numbers work, and how the archetypes explained by C. G. Jung reveal themselves in the Major Arcana.

This book shows you how to use the cards to guide your life. You can do a life reading, or an annual reading. You can work with the symbols to solve a problem, or for long-range insights into where you are going with your life. Hamaker-Zondag includes working with dreams, visualization, the I Ching, color and number combinations, mythology, and all kinds of traditional symbolism, to make it easy to understand the tarot! And when the tarot is easy to understand, it’s easy to use. This book is made for working with the Waite tarot deck (originated by A. E. Waite drawn by Pamela Coleman Smith, and originally published by Rider & Co.). It can also be used with the new Universal Waite Tarot deck published by U.S. Games.
