I only have two.

Huson's Mystical Origins of the Tarot and Gad's Tarot and Individuation. I borrowed Wang's Qabalistic Tarot, and also 78 Degrees of Wisdom and might invest in those. Have looked through lots of others over the last month.

I like Huson's most of all as it puts in perspective how subjective the meanings really are, but also includes some historical info. Wang's book immerses me in the immensity of the topic, but gently. I've just begun Gad's book. I'm trying to read it loosely as I'm not sure I agree with, or know enough about some of her beliefs. So I'll continue.

The goat in my stable right now is not exactly Tarot-related, but I find it's settling me nicely. Wabi-Sabi for Artists, Designers, Poets & Philosophers.

re Aesthetic obscurantism:

"Most revealing about the meaning of wabi-sabi is the fostering of the myth of inscrutability for aesthetic reasons....From this vantage point, missing or indefinable knowledge is simply another aspect of wabi-sabi's inherent "incompleteness." Since ideological clarity or transparency is not an essential aspect of wabi-sabi, to fully explain the concept might, in fact, diminish it."
