Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Though tarot is often thought of as a tool for divination and fortune-telling, it also has deep roots in spirituality and psychology. For those who know how to see and listen, the cards hold the potential to help us better navigate the full spectrum of the human experience.

In Tarot for Change, Jessica Dore divulges years of hard-won secrets about how to work with tarot to better understand ourselves and live in alignment with what's precious. Dore shows readers how to choose a deck, interpret images, and build a relationship with the cards, while also demonstrating how the mythic imagery of tarot supports modern therapeutic concepts like mindfulness, acceptance, and compassion. Her reflections on each of the seventy-eight cards are a vibrant tapestry that weaves together ideas from psychology, behavioral science, spirituality, and old stories, breathing new language into ancient wisdoms about what it means to be human.   This is as much a book for those who are new to tarot as it is for those who have worked with the cards for years. And it's a book for anyone interested in exploring what it means to experience joy, heartbreak, wonder, stagnation, grief, loneliness, love. A book of secrets, symbols, and stories, Tarot for Change is a charm for remembering that our problems are not new, we are never alone, and whether we know it or not, we are always in a process of change.

"Tarot for Change is the very best kind of tarot book: one that contains magical hidden depths, and that rewards careful readers with truly astounding wisdom and generosity. Jessica Dore combines ancient spirituality with modern psychology to share insights that feel both timeless and brand new. Tarot for Change will teach you about tarot, but also about yourself, and all the joy, heartache, and mystery of being human."
-Claire Comstock-Gay, author of Madame Clairevoyant's Guide to the Stars
"Tarot for Change is a wondrously inviting book from a writer who envelops any reader-from the curious and the amateurish to the refined and masterly-into her prose and knowledge. Though this is a written document, the words are the kind that settle into the grooves of your spirit and encourage you to reconnect with the unseen in order to find new discoveries about what is seen."
-Morgan Jerkins, New York Times bestselling author of This Will Be My Undoing and Caul Baby
