With beautiful illustrations by a renowned artist, this book and card boxed set, presented shrinkwrapped in a magnetic box, offers a totally unique Tarot experienceRepresenting our archetypal aspects as part human and part animal, this Tarot explores the fundamental types of people and life situations entrenched in the collective psyche of all people. The humanistic qualities of the Major Arcana may also symbolically represent our emotional and spiritual development from the newborn infant to adult, while the animalistic side could be said to mirror our inherent primordial strengths and weaknesses. The card artwork blends 15th Century Tudor and Elizabethan-inspired costume styles with a classical late Baroque, Victorian, and French theme with a touch of the Romany Gypsy. A beautifully packaged unique Tarot set, each card is gilded with gold and a rich deep burgundy box interior makes this a great gift for any Tarot reader or fan. Features 80 cards and a guidebook.

Using Janet Boyer's BIT (Back in Time) method of working with the Tarot, readers will gain insight into the present--and ultimately their future--by exploring their past. Gone are arcane and hard-to-understand explanations of Tarot symbols. Boyer offers an intuitive approach that allows readers to "feel the truth" of the cards as they relate to the specific parts of their lives. In a nutshell, the BIT Method: Asks readers to think about a specific incident from their past Break down that memory or event into components Connect the elements of any card with the components of that memory Boyer presents Back in Time (BIT) snapshots from her colleagues, some of Tarot's best-known writers and deck artists who relate their own experiences with the BIT Method that range from comical and msyterious to sobering. Providing more than 100 exercises and referencing more than 40 Tarot decks, The Back in Time Tarot Book draws on personal examples, headlines, television, music, and fairytales, allowing Tarot to be appreciated in a fresh new way. The BIT Method does not follow that there is only one way to see Tarot cards now and in the future; rather, it encourages readers in their own abilities to recognize what is important in the cards. The contributors include Nina Lee Braden, Joan Bunning, Wilma Carroll, Ann Cass, Elizabeth Cunningham, Lon Milo DuQuette, Josephine Ellershaw, Mary K. Greer, Lisa Hunt, Mark McElroy, Teresa Michelsen, Riccardo Minetti, Phyllis Vega, and Zach Wong.
Rosa is surprised to discover tarot cards hidden in the wardrobe of her down-to-earth mum. Inextricably drawn to the cards, Rosa is rather shocked to find that she has a talent for using them - but even more shocked by her mother's fierce reaction to this. Unable now to resist the temptation to discover more, Rosa delves into her mother's background and finds it weirdly tangled with that of the mother of her new friend, Andy. As the two of them investigate what happened when their mothers were young, they tentatively develop their own feelings for each other too.
