Wild Soul Runes

Highlights the feminine origin of the runes in the context of an immersive course in rune practice. Using inquiry and original translations alongside traditional rune poems and sacred art, Wild Soul Runes invites readers to develop their own wisdom connection with the runes through practice. The book is based on the premise that all of us possess the ability to receive divine information through rune practice. Rather than telling the reader what the runes mean, author Lara Veleda Vesta shares an interactive practice for readers to discover the unique ways the runes speak to them. The book covers the history of the runes, both in myth and through the connection with Old European archaeological findings. This history offers evidence for the idea that the runes have a feminine origin, coming from the well of the Norns, the female triple giantesses who represent the fates in Norse myth. It introduces the concept of the runes as beings rather than simply an alphabet or magical tools. The purpose of Wild Soul Runes is to create a relationship with these beings through ancestral connection, personal gnosis, and ritual practice. Readers will learn how to: Make a rune altar Develop a daily ritual practice with the runes Honor the Germanic/Anglo Saxon wheel of the year Craft a rune set and rune ceremonies for divination v

Origins of the Tarot

An absorbing and richly illustrated examination of the Asian and Islamic influence behind the creation of the Tarot's Minor Arcana. This volume highlights the symbolic and ludic contributions leading up to the invention of the basic ingredients for playing cards: paper, printing, and formal games. Set against the backdrop of humankind as Homo symbolicus (symbolic man) and Homo ludens (playful man), Ben Hoshour illustrates how the gradual evolution of symbolic expression and the creation of formal games gradually led to the formation of pre-European playing cards, specifically the Chinese money cards and the Mamluk pack. Following a detailed examination of both landmark packs, Hoshour illustrates the way in which they provided the foundation for European playing cards, to include the Tarot. There has never been a more accessible guidebook to these landmark packs or the early history of the Minor Arcana.

Origins of the Tarot s Minor Arcana

Today, the Tarot is largely associated with divinatory practices, western ceremonial magic, and as a primary element in the New-Age Spirituality complex. Central to these associations is the Tarot's trump suit, consisting of twenty-two symbolic images, whose original 15th-century meaning has been whitewashed by the Tarot's occult pseudo-history. The trump suit (Major Arcana), however, is only one of two components making up the Tarot, the other being its regular pack, or Minor Arcana. This one-of-a-kind volume deals with the ancestry of the much-neglected Minor Arcana, showing that it developed as a unique variant of European playing cards, which were themselves the inheritance of a much older and richer Chinese and Islamic heritage.In "Tarot Ancestors", Ben Hoshour examines the untold story of the Asian and Islamic influences leading up to the creation of European playing cards, specifically the Chinese money cards and the Mamluk deck. His treatment is a needed one, going a long way towards dispelling the numerous origin myths surrounding the Tarot and placing it firmly back within its historical roots. These early developments are framed within the larger story of humankind as Homo symbolicus (symbolic man) and Homo ludens (playful man) in order to show that playing cards were the direct result of humankind's innate propensity to play and communicate symbolically.This volume also serves as an indispensable guidebook to the cards of the the Chinese money pack and the Mamluk deck. This short, landmark work delves deeply into the mysteries of both packs, revealing the origin of the four suit system in the Chinese pack and foundation for the European suit-signs in the Mamluk deck. Each of these packs, including their suit-signs (i.e. symbols), developed as a unique combination of the symbolic and ludic (i.e. relating to games) elements of the culture in which they were created, a process that would be repeated with European cards including the Tarot.Origins of the Minor Arcana is the definitive, popular work on the early, formative history of the Tarot's Minor Arcana. This knowledge that will deepen and enrich your understanding and appreciation of the most neglected masterpiece of the Italian Renaissance.

Origins of the Tarot

Conventional wisdom traces Tarot cards to medieval Italy, but their roots go back much further in time and draw on a surprisingly rich variety of cultures and spiritual traditions. Combining pioneering scholarship with practical spiritual instruction, Origins of the Tarot is the first book to unveil the full range of the ancient streams of wisdom from which the Tarot emerged.The timeless principles of conscious realization and cosmological unfoldment underlying the Tarot have never been explored in a comparably extensive and detailed way: herein the teachings of a tremendous range of traditions, including Kabbalah, Western esotericism and alchemy, Buddhism, Taoism, yogic disciplines, Sufism, mystical Christianity, Gnosticism, and Neoplatonism, are masterfully incorporated and synthesized.Author Dai Léon explores a confluence of philosophical schools from East and West as they relate to the Tarot, giving each its due in the exposition of a universal procession of evolution and the soul’s quest for enlightenment. In the process, the Tarot is seen as a unique exemplification of perennial teachings on the soul and its liberation, as well as a still-unfolding window into concealed currents of human history. The book’s profound learning and unprecedented range of references are sure to attract close study among students both of the world’s most enduring esoteric tradition and of esotericism itself.

Tarot and Other Meditation Decks

Hundreds of new Tarot decks have been produced in the late twentieth century, many of them based on the structure and images of Arthur Waite and artist Pamela Smith's Rider-Waite deck (1910). The continuing popularity and influence of the Rider-Waite deck makes it a standard for identifying, categorizing and analyzing contemporary Tarot and other meditation decks. This work of art history analyzes such decks in relation to conventional art styles and movements, including Symbolism, Surrealism, the modernist "grid" and the low/high value hierarchy, and postmodern art movements and concepts such as the dissolution of the modernist value hierarchy, Pattern and Decoration art, and collage. It also examines them in relation to literary concepts, including the novel, utopias, and popular genres. The author's analysis is supported by numerous illustrations, including the Rider-Waite major arcana cards juxtaposed with examples of their counterparts from more recent decks.
