The Tarot is a deck of freedom. It has the potential to free from our own limitations, and to foster healthier relationships with ourselves and others. It provides glimpses of how a society might transform itself, inviting us to imagine and to create new ways of living within the wider community. Yet a thought-provoking view is that Tarot itself is subject to a certain degree of "bondage," and requires some sense of its own "liberation" - liberation from its links with fraudulent practices and New Age acquisitiveness; from the value-assumptions that embellish its more popular and mainstream decks; from a view of spirituality that moves little beyond that of self-healing for the privileged. One of the aims of this book is to examine such concerns, but also to explore more "liberating" forms of interpretation and practice.
