Pictures from the Heart

A Tarot Dictionary

St. Martin's Griffin

For hundreds of years, people have turned to the tarot for guidance and focus in seeking answers to life's questions. While millions use the Tarot regularly, much of its history, lore, and symbolism remain obscure--making it difficult for the user to get the deepest possible reading. Also, with hundreds of different decks available, drawing on several major traditions, finding the right deck--the one that the Tarot user will find most sympathetic to their needs, desires, and usage--can become an arduous task.

Pictures from the Heart provides hundreds of entries detailing the symbolism of the Tarot, contrasting the various decks on the market, as well as issues, figures, and topics of interest to the Tarot user. For both the experienced and the neophyte user, this tarot dictionary is a long-awaited and essential resource.
