A new and updated edition of the popular tarot deck that reawakens the child in all of us.

• Uses the important archetypes of childhood fairy tales to awaken emotional memory and heal the child within.

• Excellent for dream work, the recovery process, and use with children.

Inner Child Cards is a tarot system that helps us interact with the world's most potent archetypes. The authors assign an archetypal childhood story to each image in the traditional tarot deck. Cinderella aligns with the Moon card, traditionally associated with the power of dreams and visions. Sleeping Beauty parallels the Death card with its theme of personal metamorphosis. Little Red Cap stands in for the Fool (the innocent).

Before the Age of Reason higher learning was transmitted through archetypal characters in stories and fairy tales. In modern times these all-important stories have been relegated to a secondary position, with no recognition of their deeper meaning. The whimsical art and familiar characters of the Inner Child Cards will awaken dormant emotional memory that has been trapped in long-forgotten childhood stories. Tarot has always had an uncanny capacity to act as a "hall of mirrors" reflecting the true trajectory of life. By referencing fairy-tale archetypes, Inner Child Cards gives adults an especially clear reflection of the child within and imaginative access to the soul's own personal truth. And because of their playful nature, these cards are equally well suited for use with children.

She is also the author of the Power of Flowers book and deck and the forthcoming Inner Child Cards Workbook. Mark Lerner has extensively researched the correlations between tarot, astrology, fairy tales, psychology, and healing sin...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful set! This is a beautiful set of tarot cards and book. The book is very chunky and has all the information needed to read with the cards. The cards are much bigger than the average size tarot card, but I don't mind that. The only minor issue I have with the cards are that they are quite thin. I typically prefer thinner cards, but these are extra thin and will need gentle handling. I don't really mind that because I'm gentle with all my cards anyway, but I still would have preferred a little thicker card stock. Beautiful cards/book set and I'm happy over all with them.
