Earlier this week I noted that Llewellyn is having a really great spring sale that included some older tarot books. One of them is Tarot Awareness: Exploring the Spiritual Path by Stephen Walter Sterling. It is on sale for only $8.98. This was one of the earliest books I acquired for Llewellyn. I loved it quite a bit back then. To be honest, though, I’d not looked at it in a many years.
Looking through it again, I see why I loved it so much in the first place. This book takes a sacred approach to tarot, making it an excellent companion for someone using tarot for spiritual growth and enlightenment. Stephen includes references from many different spiritual paths. Although he draws from many traditions, the material he presents has depth.
In addition, it is an excellent reference and beginner book, as it includes correspondences as well as upright and reversed meanings. The Majors include meditations and prayers. The Minors include strategies.
Oh, and do you recognize the art on the cover? It is the work of Robert Place!
