About the book

Take a step forward on your spiritual journey with this gorgeously illustrated celebration of deities, folklore, and fairy tales from all over the world. The path to enlightenment is unique for each of us, but many of the lessons we learn are shared stories passed among cultures and generations. With rich, vibrant art and a keen understanding of traditional tarot archetypes, illustrator Yoshi Yoshitani infuses Tarot of the Divine with worldly insight and an intriguing selection of fables and folktales from cultures across the globe. The Major Arcana cards are brought to life with characters from beloved stories who embody the fool's journey, from the Danish fable of the naive Little Mermaid (a character who represents The Fool) to China's Beauty and the Beast (The Lovers) to the Maori legend of Hinemoa and Tutanekai (The World). The archetypes of the Minor Arcana--focused on suits of cups, coins, swords, and wands--are made richer with diverse cultural fables, ancient mythologies, and spiritual legends like the Crane Wife (Japan), Aladdin (Persia), Jack and the Beanstalk (England), Fenrir (Norway), Oedipus (Greece), the Pandavas (India), and dozens more. As you acquaint yourself with your cards, a 44-page guidebook illuminates how these fables support traditional tarot imagery and themes. With fables from more than forty countries, this spiritual journey is a worldly experience like no other.
