Anime Tarot: Explore the Archetypes, Symbolism, and Magic in Anime (Paperback)
Embrace and deepen your understanding of the spiritual and intuitive power of tarot cards using your favorite modern anime characters and symbols.
While tarot has been around for years, it’s seen a grand revival among those eager to learn how the cards can nurture intuition and spirituality in more creative, modern ways. And what better way to do that than by combining the classic symbolism of tarot with the fun and consistently appearing archetypes in anime?
Whether it’s The Empress, a card representing femininity, beauty, nurturing, and abundance, being represented through the Yamato Nadeshiko character archetype, which is the epitome of purity, poise, kindness, and honesty; or The Hermit, a card linked to solitude, soul-searching, and withdrawal being linked to the Hikikomori archetype, the modern-day hermits that rely heavily on technology, social media, video games, and other forms of distanced communication and entertainment to get by, we all have an unrealized version of our true potential lying in wait, and what better way to see this potential than through our favorite anime characters.
Linking these anime characters and genre theory, tropes, and archetypes to the classic symbolism of the major and minor Arcana, Anime Tarot helps you engage and deepen your understanding of your inner world.
