Tarot For Life

Paul Quinn
Tarot for Life: Reading the Cards for Everyday Guidance and Growth

Quest Books, Theosophical Publishing House, Wheaton, IL 2009

Tarot for Life moves the tarot beyond fortune-telling and celebrates the cards as an intimate way to connect to the higher self. Though there are many paths to inner wisdom, the tarot communicates with an instant response that helps make wise choices. "The tarot can be a dynamic tool for spiritual development, though the cards themselves have no power to transform us." Insight comes from the courage of the questions asked of the deck and the action taken once information is received. Paul Quinn’s accessible guide is easy for tarot newcomers to follow (you'll feel like a student in one of Quinn's classes) and has unique insights for experienced readers. Exploring various spreads, the universal archetypes of the Major Arcana, and the spiritual, practical and psychological meaning of all 78 cards, Quinn respects the tarot’s mystical core while offering amusing anecdotes and examples to explain complexities such as reversed cards.
