An exciting handbook for either a beginning or an ardent student of the tarot, it contains a multitude of charts, spreads, illustrations of the Thoth Deck, and other methodology tools for anyone looking for insights into personal and spiritual development.
An anthropologist who specializes in cross-cultural myths, Arrien demonstrates how the seventy-eight figures of the tarot are portraitures and archetypes that are prevalent in the collective human experience. The author teaches us to use this realization to look beyond our cultural viewpoint or bias when we approach the tarot, and to rely instead on these more important universal principles, thereby deepening the quality and accuracy of our interpretations and expanding our awareness of the human psyche.
A significant and classic piece of tarot literature, The Tarot Handbook is both a required manual for teachers and students of the subject, and an accessible and fascinating exploration of cultural anthropology.

The Tarot Handbook by Ángeles Arrien
I read this in college and was so inspired by Angeles’s way of describing the tarot symbols in an anthropological context. I even wrote her a fan letter! Jan 28, Quinn rated it it was amazing. This is not a book you will sit down and read from cover to cover, although I thought I would and tried to do just that. It’s a reference book, and you’ll be happier if you treat it that way. While you can figure out your “symbol” and “number” that your life directs, this book is far more interesting for the deep analysis, both Jungian and mystical, of the meaning behind the figures of the Tarot.
And not just the major arcana, either, but of every card in the deck. You get the history of tarot, This is not a book you will sit down and read from cover to cover, although I thought I would and tried to do just that.
You get the history of tarot, the various meanings, and some practical guides to using it. It’s not a book of magic, it’s a book of metaphor and symbolism. And excellent reference book, not just for Tarot readers, but for anyone interested in poetry and metaphor, imagery and meaning-making.
May 29, Daeryl Holzer rated it it was amazing. This is by far the most complete and useful book on Tarot I have ever found. I have been using this book since the early 90s, and it was a refreshing change from the negative interpretations that came with the Thoth deck.
I love the approach of personal growth, the richness of symbolism, and the information about birth date numerology. I highly recommend this book as a learning tool to use with any deck. Sep 11, Jean rated it it was amazing Shelves: Great resource if you use Thoth. Aug 07, Ginny Garber rated it it was amazing.

I was so amazed angelee the first day of looking at it, that then I purchased a copy for two of my dear friends.
This book has so much in it that I’d been tzrot to play around with. There are detailed write-ups of each card. How to handle all the mathematical equations that cover Soul and Personality and Yearly Growth Cards. And there is a section on each of the card write-ups for how tadot interpret it if you received them for the three things you got from your equations. I’m literally head over heels for this book in all ways.
May 17, Petra rated it it was amazing. I’ve been using this book for years and I am impressed hsndbook it each angels I browse its pages. A perfect alliance of both the light and the dark element of the universal higher power conveyed to us by Angeles and Aleister, respectively.

I learned process, content, and intuitive skills through this book. I own many decks and have used the books from all of them to interpret cards but this verson uses the Crowley deck.
She interprets the Crowley deck imagery wonderfully but I also connect the best with her understanding of Tarot meaning.

The Crowley deck was what I was originally drawn to and what I go back to every time so maybe that’s the connection I feel wit My favorite Tarot book of all time. The Crowley deck was what I was originally drawn to and what I go back to every time so maybe that’s the connection I feel with her, but I still feel anyone could benefit from this book. May 29, Sean Lambert rated it it was amazing. I love the blending of mythology and archetypes and traditional Tarot symbolism in this book.
It is great for someone like me who looks at Tarot as something that gives perspective and insight into our thoughts and decision-making process rather than as something that has a supernatural or divinatory component.
Very thorough and detailed descriptions for each of the cards, adding a lot of meaning that I haven’t seen in the half-dozen other books I’ve read on the Thoth Tarot. May 23, Mary rated it it was amazing.
Fantastic introduction to Tarot. I haven’t bought the cards yet but I intend to do that soon and do a reading.
