Long DescriptionThe Tarot is one of the few books that cuts through conventional misperceptions to explore the Tarot deck as it really developed in the Middle Ages and Renaissance Europe-not, as some would suggest, in the far reaches of Egyp-tian antiquity. Mining the Hermetic, alchemical, and Neoplatonic influences behind the evolution of the deck, author Robert M. Place provides a historically grounded and compelling portrait of the Tarot's true origins, without overlooking the deck's mystical dimensions.

Indeed, Place uncommonly weds reliable historiography with a practical understanding of the intuitive help and divinatory guidance that the cards can bring. He presents techniques that offer new and valuable ways to read and interpret the cards. Based on a simple three-card spread, Place's approach can be used by either the seasoned practitioner or the new inquirer.

Article of interest

We just finished a big hardware upgrade and then a minor sofware upgrade. Now we are looking at revamping the data layout to make this site more robust and useful to everyone.

The goal is to prove more infomation about each product from various directions.

There will be improvements to connecting products to companies. We will be restoring the "Claim This Product" process that we had to shut down recently. We will be making it possible to attach more information to each product. For example nutritional information to food products.

This set of changes is going to take a lot of work to make sure we don't break anything and that we can manage the data in a reasonable way.

You probably won't see any changes for a couple months because some of these changes take a lot of planning and data conversion. But a few things will be available soon. The first thing we will tackle is the "Claim This Product" process because it is very important to give control to the product owners.

Thanks for visiting the site and partipating. Feel free to send us ideas and other comments. We love to hear from you.
