The New Mythic Tarot
Drawing on images and stories taken from Greek mythology, The New Mythic Tarot is revised and re-illustrated to guide and inspire a new generation of readers. Each suit depicts archetypal characters - such as the heroic Odysseus, the Earth Mother Demeter and Athena, goddess of justice - and every card tells a well-known mythical story. Rich with psychological insight, these legends provide the wisdom we seek for personal growth. A reading guide gives full information on how the tarot works, the meaning of each card and how to conduct readings. Juliet presents groups of both Major and Minor cards in stages, so that the learning process is gradual and enjoyable.
First published in 1989, The Mythic Tarot deck has been an international success with tarot readers for over 25 years. New life has been breathed into this classic deck with all new illustrations by Giovanni Caselli. The Major Arcana card illustrations depict the gods and goddesses, heroes and heroines of classical Greek mythology. These familiar archetypes reflect our own life patterns and experiences. The images are rich in psychological insight, providing wisdom and guidance for seekers of personal growth. The Minor Arcana are presented in the form of stories that accompany each of the four suits, each relating to a different sphere of life.
The expertly written 256-page illustrated book guides the reader through the myths, the imagery and symbolism of each tarot card, and the meaning of the card at both the inner level and the divinatory level. Instructions are given for the Celtic Cross spread and a Planetary Spread with sample readings.
