The Definitive Edition 83 Cards and 272-Page Full-Colour guidebook

Rachel Pollack

From the renowned author of Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom, widely referred to as the "tarot bible," this deck and guide book invite readers to join the "shining tribe" of diviners and take the timeless sacred journey of self-discovery.

“All of us who work with Tarot form a kind of tribe, one whose roots go back many thousands of years before the actual appearance of Tarot cards. This is the tribe of diviners, those special magicians, shamans, psychics, and visionaries who use cards, or sticks, or trees, or stones, or shells to communicate with the Gods.”—Rachel Pollack
Human beings have practiced the art of divination for millennia. In some cultures, diviners studied patterns in nature—the flight of birds, the forms of clouds, or the arrangement of the stars in the night sky. In others, they created elaborate divinatory systems such as the I Ching and the Tarot. Drawing from the legacy of 50,000 years of human encounters with the Divine, renowned Tarot scholar Rachel Pollack has created THE SHINING TRIBE TAROT.
THE SHINING TRIBE TAROT cards are steeped in symbolism drawn from culturally diverse systems including Neolithic rock art, Native American and African shamanism, Aboriginal art, the Kabbalah, Jungian psychology, and the traditional Tarot. The accompanying book includes detailed descriptions of the origin and history of the symbols depicted on each card of this unique deck, as well as explanations of their meanings in divinatory spreads. The minor arcana is focused in nature with the suits represented by stones, rivers, trees, and birds.
You will learn how to read the cards for a variety of purposes, including divination, advice, and guidance along your own personal sacred journey. Lessons are also shared to gain insights into the nightly messages from your subconscious mind through dream readings and how to activate a card to bring its qualities into your everyday life.
Rachel Pollack invites you to join the shining tribe of diviners and visionaries. As you continue along the sacred journey of self-discovery, let THE SHINING TRIBE TAROT cards shine a path for you.
The Shining Tribe Tarot was previously published in 2001 by Llewellyn Publications. This Weiser Books edition includes colour corrections to the card art as directed by Rachel Pollack and five new cards not available in the previous edition (including 1 addition to the  Major Arcana and 1 extra card in each of the Minor Arcana suits). The accompanying book has been revised and expanded and, for the first time, is printed in full colour.
