Mythology and Tarot - two of my great loves. The book is very descriptive, and I believe it could work well for a novice or experienced reader. Since mythology is a narrative, this book is written in a similar fashion. All querents begin as the Fool because of their journey and search for answers, and Major Arcana vary with their uses of major gods and goddesses. The Minor Arcana focuses on one specific myth within each suit, such as Daedalus and Jason, so everything really focuses on the journey we all go through.

The deck is beautifully colored, and anyone who knows the myths should be able to identify each card fairly easily. It helps to know the mythology so you can attribute some of that knowledge in order to connect it to yourself or another querent. This is my favorite deck to use, by far. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312562012, Paperback)

From the time of its first publication in 1986, The Mythic Tarot has sold over a million copies in dozens of countries. Now, for this twenty-fifth anniversary edition, the text has been revised, brought up to date and the deck completely reillustrated by internationally renowned artist, Giovanni Caselli.

The New Mythic Tarot brings together all the elements that made the original version such a necessary deck for all tarot enthusiasts—a deck that depicts the gods and goddesses, heroes and heroines of the Greek myths and a book that helps the reader explore them as familiar archetypal characters, whose experiences mirror the shifts and patterns of daily life.

This fully revised and updated edition of one of the few true classic book and card tarot kits breathes fresh life into this standard work and will be welcomed by long-time devotees and new fans alike.
