Many suggest that the tarot evolved from an ancient book containing the prototype of a perfect spiritual journey. Others see it as an extension of astrology and celestial interpretations. And some view it as merely a game with uncanny relevance to life and life events. The Elemental Tarot is the perfect distillation of all these. Featuring explanations of the intrinsic meanings of each element - fire, earth, air and water - plus keys to the astrological and Egyptian symbolism accompanying the artwork, as well as sample layouts and readings, this extraordinary deck of cards revitalizes centuries of mystical ideas and generations of symbolic designs. No matter how you choose to use it, its beauty and meaning will serve to heighten your own awareness of life and its possibilities.
