The descriptions of each tarot card are very reliable and very complete. Of particular interest are the alchemical associations and the authors work on the gematria or numerology of each card. For the first time a complete alchemical system is given for the whole deck. There is also a good deal of added astrological information and divinatory meanings and interpretations. Several excellent suggestions for studying and meditating on the cards are provided by the authors. This book is a balanced combination of both historical and new material presented by the Zalewskis that stands firmly rooted in Golden Dawn teachings and ritual practice. There are many interesting new innovations in this book. Fully illustrated with 78 all new tarot cards by Golden Dawn member and professional artist, Skip Dudchous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most comprehensive book ever written about tarot cards This book is 400 pages of pure, in-depth, concise information regarding not only the meanings of the cards in both the Golden Dawn & Rider-Waite tarot decks, but also the Qabalistic, alchemical, astrological & occult associations each card carries. It's clear that this book isn't written for complete novices, but everything is written in plain English for all readers to understand. Experts can keep this book as a great desk reference not only for fortune-telling by tarot cards, but also as an introductory reference to ritual magic using the cards. And the illustrations of each card is exquisite; it's unfortunate that the cards aren't coloured & that this book doesn't come with the deck anymore.
