Tarot of the Divine
"The path to enlightenment is unique for each of us, but many of the lessons we learn are shared stories passed among cultures and generations."
The Tarot of the Divine, by Yoshi Yoshitani, brings traditional tarot archetypes to life a lustrous and beautifully illustrated series of fables, including The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Crane Wife, Sleeping Beauty, King Arthur, and the stories of lesser-known legends and deities from around the world.
The Major Arcana cards are brought to life with characters from beloved stories who embody the fool's journey, from the Danish fable of the naive Little Mermaid (a character who represents The Fool) to China's Beauty and the Beast (The Lovers) to the Maori legend of Hinemoa and Tutanekai (The World). The archetypes of the Minor Arcana -- focused on the traditional Rider-Waite-Smith suits of cups, coins, swords, and wands -- are made richer with diverse cultural fables, ancient mythologies, and spiritual legends like the Crane Wife (Japan), Aladdin (Persia), Jack and the Beanstalk (England), Fenrir (Norway), Oedipus (Greece), the Pandavas (India), and dozens more.
Just as the tarot provides ways to interpret the world from all around us, so too, do these illuminating folktales.
Includes the full 78 card tarot deck, and a full-colour 44-page illustrated guidebook.
