This refreshingly contemporary take on Tarot is equal parts gorgeous art book and thought-provoking spiritual touchstone. Each page represents one of the classic 78 Tarot cards, beautifully depicted in ethereal watercolours by Michelle Blade and eloquently explained in text by Jen Altman. The Circadian Tarot invites readers to start each day by intuitively opening to a page, seemingly at random (a technique known in the use of traditional Tarot decks as the "single draw method"); the card thus revealed offers guidance for navigating hopes, dreams, and questions throughout the day. Modern-day seekers will treasure the fresh look of Blade's magical artwork and the age-old wisdom conveyed by Altman's clear-eyed readings.
