Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom by Rachel Pollack
A tarot journey to self-awareness

The bestselling tarot classic in a new edition with a new preface by the author.

When it was first published nearly 40-years-ago, Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom was an instant classic and inspired generations of tarot students. Often referred to as the “bible of tarot books” it has now helped to launch the “tarot renaissance” we’re seeing today. Drawing on mythology and esoteric traditions and delving deeply into the symbolism and ideas of each card, the book offers a modern psychological interpretation of the tarot archetypes rather than a system of esoteric symbolism.

Originally two volumes, Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom has inspired a whole generation of students of that Tarot. The book has brought awareness of myth and modern psychology to the Tarot’s ancient esoteric symbolism.

“An inspiration to Tarot readers for 40 years, this is still the all-time best book for exploring both the deeper symbolism and practical meanings of the Major and Minor Arcana. I encourage you to turn to 78 Degrees of Wisdom to learn to read with and interpret the images of the Rider-Waite Tarot or, indeed, any deck.” —Mary K. Greer, author of Tarot for Your Self
