La Voie Du Tarot : Alejandro Jodorowsky :
Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. The Way of Tarot: The Tarot is first and foremost a powerful instrument of self-knowledge and a representation of the structure of the soul. The Way of Tarot shows that the entire deck is structured like a temple, or a mandala, which is both an image of the world and a representation alejandrro the divine. The authors explore the secret associations behind the hierarchy of the cards and the correspondences between the suits and energies within human beings.
Each description of the Major Arcana includes key word summaries, symbolic meanings, traditional interpretations, and a section where the card speaks for itself. Jodorowsky and Costa then take the art of reading the Tarot to a depth never before possible. Using their work with Tarology, a new psychological approach that uses the symbolism and optical language of the Tarot to create a mirror image of the personality, they offer a powerful tool for self-realization, creativity, and healing.

The true study of the Arcanum begins with the consistent order of the entire Tarot; every detail, tiny as it may be, begins from the links that connect all seventy-eight cards. To understand these myriad symbols, one needs to have seen the final symbol they all form together: My interest in the Tarot is not this intense.
I find the symbolism interesting, and even more so the visual qualities.

I had thought, given Jadorowsky’s interest in the visual that there would be something worthwhile in terms of illustration, but in fact they are both minimal and tadot.
However, the author’s writing is certainly compelling, and the material about his life is fascinating.
He worked with Marcel Marceau! He knew Leonora Carrington Carrington was also fascinated by the Alejabdro and references it in many of her paintings. Here’s an, er, thing, they did together: Tarit for those with a serious interest in either the Tarot or Jodorowsky’s psyche.

I do not believe in divination and honestly I read this book because I loved “The Holy Mountain” and “El Topo” and I wanted to learn more about the underlying symbolism of the Major Arcana.
So, to say this book surprised me is a bit of an understatement. Not only does Jodorowsky do a lot to demystify jodorowskh tarot admitting its origins as a poker like game in the late Middle Ages to Josorowsky but he at onc It’s hard not to approach a book about the tarot without some strong measure of skepticism.
Not only does Jodorowsky do a lot to demystify the tarot admitting its origins as a poker like game in the late Middle Ages to Renaissance but he at once explores and explodes the various symbologies that have been imposed upon the tarot, from the rote tarkt that we’re more familiar with in Waite-Smith decks to numerology inherited from the kabbalah though it s not without interesting overlapsJodorowsky puts the cards in their place: Yet despite that limitation, he is also able to convincingly explore how tarot can be used to psychological and spiritual introspection.
Though there are times he veers towards interpretations that seem either too Freudian or mystical to keep in al with some of his more “no-nonsense” passages, the book overall is highly insightful and interesting, and worth reading for anyone who is even casually interested in the tarot, but not afraid of reading through alchemical, Buddhist, Daoist, and Judeo-Christian analyses.

This book came highly recommended from a friend of mine who is an amazing artist and reads tarot herself. I am a professional Tarot reader but had never studied The MarseillesTarot one of the oldest editions specifically which Jodorowsky works with in this book.
I had loved his films El Topo and the Magic Mountain years ago, as he alejanrro fascinated with archetypes and that is what the Tarot is.
The fountain of archetypal knowledge and symbolism it is virtually the Unconscious itself. These are very mu This book came highly recommended from a friend of mine who is an amazing artist and reads tarot herself. These are very much his own chanellings as he describes each major tarot card as he embodies them. It is very much his system. There is so much nuance and triggers to the imagination in his book.
He describes very subtle markings in each card which would usually go unnoticed. He pairs the cards in a different Numerology than the system I had previously been using. There is so much eye opening content in this book. He goes through each of the 78 cards in the deck, with many layouts and questions. His life is karmically connected to the Tarot and its ancient wisdom and knowledge. An excellent book, very in depth. HIghly recommended, you may uses it as a reference book.
Aug 12, Monica rated it really liked it. This is definitely not an every day reading. This is definitely not a reading for everybody. This is a book that needs attention, an open mind and a desire to accept that nothing is static and that everything changes and it can be changed. The reader of such a book needs to have two preconditions: The last paragraph of the book is mind blowing This is definitely not an every day reading.
The last paragraph of the book is mind blowing and basically the key to understand all those long pages when the author seems to have lost any measure. Dec 28, Laura marked it as to-read. Jun 19, Albert rated it it was amazing. This book is my newest reference guide to life. I will be consulting it frequently for many years to come.
Not only will you get advice on how to understand to read the language of the Tarot, in addition you receive the wisdom of Jodorowsky and his profound journeys through life. He understands humanity and has discovered how to bring healing into the art of Tarot instead of mere divination.
Become a mirror, as I have always been inclined towards, and find the means to heal the wounds of life. Oct 22, Gabriel Clarke rated it it was amazing Shelves: Finished at the second attempt. At worst, it’s pompous and didactic, a sort of hellishly complicated self-help book by Tarot’s own Paolo Coelho. At its bestit’s challenging, bracingly different and wholly refreshing. This is not a book for beginners but forms a genuine and much-needed alternative to the generic Rider-Waite-Coleman-Smith default.

The Way of Tarot: The Spiritual Teacher in the Cards
When I was 8 years old, my mother bought a copy of Cosmopolitan magazine that came with a free Tarot deck.
She gave it to me to jodorowwsky with – together with its detachable guide – and I’ve been ever since a studier of it. I’ve read many books on the Tarot – from straight forward divinations, to books on the meaning of the cards when upside down – but this one truly stands out as different from all the rest. First of all, it’s written by the filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky, known for the films “El Top When I was 8 years old, my mother bought a copy of Cosmopolitan magazine that came with a free Tarot deck.
First of all, it’s written by the filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky, known alejanndro the films “El Topo” and “Holy Mountain”, and its emphasis isn’t on fortune telling but on spiritual awakening. Jodorowsky also says something I’ve never read before: Ojdorowsky quite a large tome, with detailed information jkdorowsky each card he uses the Tarot the Marseille as well as philosophical explorations on what the cards mean as a whole.
If you want to see Jodorowsky in action with Tarot cards, there are some interesting videos on YouTube. Molto approfondita la descrizione degli Arcani ed voei tutte le metodologie di lettura ed interpretazione. Assolutamente consigliato a tutti. Feb 14, Hugh rated it it was amazing. In typical Jodo fashion this book goes from the sublime to the ridiculous. I do NOT recommend it as a first book for someone new to Tarot.
It is a good book, and it is good for learning the TdM Deck, but if you are brand new to Tarot then Rachel Pollock’s “78 Degrees of Wisdom” is a better choice to alejandeo going.
Mar 04, Giga Beriashvili rated it it was amazing. The most fascinating book on the Tarot of Marsielle that I have ever read. I sat down and read this book in two days!
A lot of information to be read once and again and again. The writing is poetic, insightful, detailed and enjoyable to read. I would recommend this to any beginner who is interested in Tarot or alejandrk practitioner of the art. Jodorowsky is really joxorowsky.
Apr 02, Sofia Girardello rated it it was amazing. L’autore per spiegarne la filosofia si basa anche su un excursus della propria vita personale, senza perdere di vita la tematica fondamentale, senza decorarla con troppi fronzoli in stile New Age.
