Take the first steps on the path of initiation using the universal power of the tarot. Jean-Louis de Biasi, Grandmaster of the Ordo Aurum Solis, presents the tarot as a complete system of High Magick. He pairs the symbolic components of the Hermetic macrocosm—the five elements, the seven ancient planets, and zodiac signs—with corresponding deities of the classical Greek pantheon, enabling you to channel cosmic energies. Using the tarot images as talismans, you'll connect with and invoke the unique energies of each card to reach higher states of consciousness through rituals that further your inner development.
