Gerard Encausse (Papus), who founded the modern Martinist Order, was in his day (1865-1916) a skilled populariser of occult thought. Nowhere is this more evident than in his€Tarot of the Bohemians, an extraordinary, comprehensive and profound study of T.S. Eliot's 'wicked pack of cards' that reaches far beyond its mundane use as a fortune-telling device.€ In this highly readable study, as relevant now as the day it was first published, Papus links the Tarot with Kabbalah and astrology, traces an esoteric history of the pack, then embarks on a deep analysis of the symbolism of the cards. He concludes with seven practical lessons on how to use the cards for divination. The book as a whole is a must-read reference for students of the occult and likely to remain so for many years to come.

Every day you make choices. Some are big, some are small-but all will affect the course of your future. The good news is that you don't have to do it alone-the tarot can give you advice when you need it most! Reading the tarot for advice requires a different approach than reading for prediction. Tarot: Your Everyday Guide presents a new method of tarot interpretation. You'll learn how to use the tarot to help you make an informed decision and determine a course of action for just about any life situation. For example, in an advice reading the Two of Wands could mean you should set up your own challenges to work out goals, define issues, and work out compromises. If the King of Cups comes up in an advice reading, it means you must give encouragement, acknowledge the accomplishments of others, give rewards, and let others enjoy the limelight. Alternatively, it could mean you need to seek a mentor who has these qualities. The position of a given card within a spread, and the cards before and after it, will clarify the cards' advice for you. You can even use advice readings to augment traditional divination. If a divinatory spread shows trouble ahead, consult the cards for advice on how to avoid the situation or lessen its impact. Whether you're an experienced tarot reader or have never even shuffled the cards before, this unique and practical book will open new doors of understanding and help you integrate the rich symbolism of the tarot into your daily life.
