The Symbolism Of The Tarot
This book is for anyone looking for a new view of the tarot. It deals with a very occultist point of view, and while there are literally an infinite number of ways to look at the tarot, this book shows you a whole new way. The book states it in a way that I never could, so I'll quote you a passage to let it speak for itself:
"As soon as I perceived the Sun, I understood that It, Itself, is the expression of the Fiery Word and the sign of the Emperor.
P.D. Ouspensky was born in Russia in 1878, and was an enormously influential figure in early 20th Century Mysticism and Occultism. He was a student of Gurdjieff,and his experiments in Higher Consciousness influence his highly esoteric writings. This book on Tarot illuminates the symbolism of the tarot in the Light of a Mystic Journey.
Ouspensky's book on the Tarot has remained practically unknown since its initial publication in Russia in 1913.
22 cards from the Waite set, described by Ouspensky, have been reproduced in full color.

So there is always something hidden in symbolism, that can be interpreted one or another way around. It is up to interpreter, who has the knowledge and experience to understand this symbolism. Not for every mortal, but interesting to read.
