Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom: A Tarot Journey to Self-Awareness (A New Edition of the Tarot Classic) by Rachel Pollack
Publisher: Weiser Books
A top tarotist's secrets to personal growth, one card at a time. The two volumes of Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom have inspired a whole generation of tarot students. It has often been described by readers, booksellers, and teachers as the "Bible of tarot readers." It is also often cited as one of the landmark books in modern tarot, and it helped to launch the "Tarot Renaissance" of the 1980s. The two texts-one for The Major Arcana and one for The Minor Arcana--appear together in this volume, which is a reissue of the 1998 edition first published by Thorsons. Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom draws on mythology and esoteric traditions and delves deeply into the symbolism and ideas of each card. It also gives the cards a modern psychological slant based on the pictures rather than a system of occult symbolism. This endlessly useful reference tool provides a concise history of tarot, introduces common spreads, and is a clear and readable book for both the beginning and advanced tarot student.
A collection of personal stories in which grandparents and elders from around the world share from their "reservoirs of wisdom" to inspire and guide. We have all heard that the only constant in life is change. How can we prepare ourselves to walk toward that change with confidence, trust, and faith? How can we maintain our vision without losing our way? In Sharing the Wisdom of Time, Pope Francis offers a simple but profound solution: To see where we should go, we must understand where we've been. The experience and wisdom of those who have come before us can provide the guidance we need to approach tomorrow free of fear and needless anxiety. Sharing the Wisdom of Time is an international effort that collects the stories of elders from over 30 countries carved from lifetimes of experience. From a blind basket weaver in Kenya to an acclaimed filmmaker in Hollywood, from a survivor of the Auschwitz concentration camp to a centenarian midwife in Guatemala, every story is a testament to the power of faith, perseverance, human resilience, and love. The experience and lived wisdom of our grandparents and elders can guide the leaders of tomorrow to move forward creatively and confidently as they envision a future of hope. The testimony of our elders will help us to look above the horizon and see the stars.
