The readings in this book ask the big questions: "How do I open my heart?" "What nourishes my soul?" Even "What plan did God follow to create the universe?"The Forest of Souls examines the cards and their dreamlike pictures from the standpoint of myth and story. It draws on ancient practices to use the cards as an opening to wonder and mystery. In this book, the Magician is not the ritual master of spells, but a poet and courageous guide. You will find Persephone in the High Priestess and the Star cards; Aphrodite in the Empress and the World. The focus is on the possible truths the cards reveal, rather than the easy answers of fortunetelling.Pollack, Rachel is the author of 'Forest of Souls A Walk Through the Tarot', published 2002 under ISBN 9781567185331 and ISBN 1567185339.
