Tarot & Psychology by Rosengarten

I've read tis book and found it very insightful. I also thought it was very gutsy of Rosengarten to tackle the topic. It shows once again there are many uses for the tarot.

I also work in hospice with patients, on occasion, with some patients I use one of several decks [kept just for that purpose] as a personal conversation/exploration tool for the patient along Jungian lines. I've been doing it for about 4 yrs now....with some spectacular results [of course there is no charge to the patient or the families].

The interesting thing is I've had a number of patient family members come to me for paid readings---although I haven't intended my hospice readings/explorations to be a business tool it has turned out that way.

What experiences have others had with this book?

I haven't purchased Rosengarten's book but have browsed it at the store. I really like the Tarot Lexicon in the book. In that Tarot Lexicon, he gives his divinatory meanings for the major and minor arcana cards of the RWS decks. Those divinatory meanings are among the most thought-provoking and psychologically-insightful that I have seen anywhere for the RWS decks. I recommend that Tarot Lexicon highly.

His Tarot Lexicon can be accessed through his website:

Pip cards (Ace to Ten of each suit)

Court Cards

Major Arcana
