The Tarot: Natural Magic

Wide Ocean


The Tarot originated in Italy during the Renaissance. At that time, it was known as Tarocchi. The Tarot Natural Magic explores the archetypal meanings of the cards through Greek mythology, classical philosophy, Neoplatonism and the humanist ideas of Renaissance thinkers such as Marsilio Ficino and Giordano Bruno.
