Learning Tarot Reversals (New)
by Bunning, Joan
Publisher: Red Wheel/Weiser
Book ID: 9781578632718, 1578632714
Generally, about half the cards in any tarot spread -- or at least a good portion of them -- will show up reversed, upside down. Yet so many tarot books treat reversed cards in a cursory manner. With Learning Tarot Reversals, Joan Bunning, author of the best-selling Learning the Tarot, has written one of the first comprehensive books dealing with this topsy-turvy subject. Traditionally, reversed card meanings are limited to the polar opposite of the most literal upright interpretations. But this provides only a small part of the overall picture. Reversed cards may also indicate a build up, lack of, or decline in the energy or event depicted by the card. Looking at the effect of reversed cards -- their number, position in a spread, groupings, and how they are situated in proximity to upright or other reversed cards -- brings subtle nuances to light and new depth to any reading.
Following the format of Learning the Tarot, Bunning presents lessons that build on each other smoothly, allowing a student to progress to increasingly complex readings and understanding with ease. She then describes in detail the reversed meaning for every card in the tarot along with a brief description of the upright meaning. With handy charts, useful exercises, and illustrations from the ubiquitous Waite deck, this book is sure to become a treasured reference work for anyone working with the tarot.
The Voynich Manuscript
Yale University Press
Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More

After surviving a serious elevator crash in London, Howard G.

The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context)
Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press
Limited to 800 copies
The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
