Shelves: , gnosticism-mysticism-esotericism This is an interesting but problematic little tarot guide written by Ouspensky, prior to his involvement with Gurdjieff if I understand correctly. On the broadest, most basic level, I am not sure I can recommend this as a guide for beginners or those in need of a resource for card meanings. Ouspensky only covers the Major Arcana in any detail, and his basic breakdown of the card meanings is too general and in some cases questionable.

His brief breakdown of the Minor Arcana elements is also This is an interesting but problematic little tarot guide written by Ouspensky, prior to his involvement with Gurdjieff if I understand correctly. Ouspensky undoubtedly refers to the Rider-Waite tarot, which consciously borrows elements from several traditions and is quite specific in terms of meaning. While I support more intuitive approaches to the tarot and have found that approach personally quite liberating, decks like the Rider-Waite or Thoth are constructed in such an intentional way that it is useful to understand the reference points and grounding system.

But then this bring us to the next issue with the book, which is that the text is rife with misinformation about tarot that is still getting repeated nearly years later. Most notably, the idea started in the 18th century by Antoine Court that the tarot originally came from Egypt, along with the idea that tarot was brought to Europe by Gypsies. None of this is supported by factual evidence, and it is more likely that tarot began as a card game influenced by similar games going further back in China and India.

If you can find this particular edition, I recommend it. Returning to my point regarding the narrative approach used by Ouspensky, I will say that this is the greatest point of interest in the book. However, those unfamiliar with this technique will find it very interesting and hopefully be able to apply the idea to their study of the cards.

Mary K. Greer uses some similar exercises in her Tarot for Your Self, directing you through the process, which Ouspensky sadly does not do. But the thoughtful reader with a deep interest in using tarot for self-work will no doubt find the demonstration of this method quite useful. The connections he is able to make from card to card to create a continuous narrative might even help those applying tarot to the writing of fiction.

Nonetheless, I plan on playing around with the system he proposes and see what I can glean from it. In conclusion, while I have some pretty strong criticisms of the content here, I did find much of it interesting and worth the read. Greer is another writer on tarot I highly recommend, and she covers more or less the same method Ouspensky uses in this text, with a more no-nonsense approach.
