Symbol Meanings in Tarot Cards - The Cosmos

Tarot pulls its symbols from a vast pool of knowledge that we all share as humans. Carl Jung called this the collective unconscious. It's the same symbols that we use when our minds create dreams, weaving them into complex patterns whose meanings we strive to find in waking life.

We're producing a few supplementary guides on how to access some of the symbolism and mysticism with tarot, starting with this: The Cosmos.
