Mythic Tarot

[Star] [6 of Wands] The Mythic Tarot by Juliet Sharman-Burke and Liz Greene brings the power and insight of ancient Greek myths to bear on the traditional tarot. Each card in the major arcana shows a scene from a myth that reflects the essential meaning of that card. For example, the Star shows Pandora looking upward with hope despite having opened Zeus' fateful box of miseries. The four suits cover four well-known myths in detail: the love of Eros and Psyche (Cups), the adventures of Jason and the Argonauts (Wands), the tribulations of Orestes and the House of Atreus (Swords), and the resourcefulness of Daedalus against the Minotaur (Pentacles). The instruction book The Mythic Tarot describes the myth, symbols and meanings that go with each card (216 pages). A separate Mythic Tarot Workbook offers exercises and extra information to help you experience this deck. The artist is Tricia Newell.
