Many thanks to my friend Katherine for lending me the book for the Herbal Tarot deck. From what I’ve seen so far, I’d say it’s worthwhile to wait a while and save some money and get the whole tarot pack, as the book is really good. To summarise, for each card (both Major and Minor Arcana), the book provides in depth information for: the tarot card, the herb associated with it, it’s medicinal properties, the dose/preparation, keywords, an affirmation, and suggested herbal allies.I include below a scan for the High Priestess, so you get an idea. Quite a lot, really! Apologies for the poor quality of the scans – if you click on the pictures they will enlarge and you can read the text.
But wait, there’s more! There is a full glossary of terms for those of us who might wonder what a diaphoretic or astringent is, comprehensive Medicine Wheel Spreads, a full bibliography, and so on. Well worth saving for if you are into herbs or planning to study herbalism.
