Tarot: Mirror of the Soul: A Handbook for the Thoth Tarot (Weiser Classics Series) (Paperback)
An essential companion to one of the most popular and influential tarot decks, the Thoth Tarot, created by Lady Frieda Harris and Aleister Crowley, now featuring new high-quality reproductions of the cards.
The seventy-eight cards of the Thoth Tarot were painted by Lady Frieda Harris according to instructions from famed occult scholar Aleister Crowley. The result is a magnificent art deco work rich in Egyptian symbolism, alchemy, and magic, and which contains kabalistic and astrological attributions.
Tarot: Mirror of the Soul provides an accessible guide to the Crowley/Harris Thoth Tarot. It explores different ways of working with the cards, guiding your inner exploration, sometimes pointing the way when handling daily situations or making difficult decisions. Author Gerd Ziegler has studied and practiced humanistic and spiritual therapy in depth.
First published by Weiser Books in 1988, Tarot: Mirror of the Soul remains a widely respected classic on the interpretation of the Crowley/Harris Thoth Tarot. This Weiser Classics edition features new high-quality reproductions of the original cards as well as an in-depth appreciation of the deck’s meaning and relevance by Diane Champigny.
