“Deciding to work with the Tarot is like embarking on a long, inward journey.”—Mary K. Greer

This tarot classic by Mary K. Greer was the first book to promote reading the cards for your own insight, revolutionizing tarot through a combined emphasis on self-teaching techniques and personal growth. Tarot for Your Self uses meditations, rituals, spreads, mandalas, visualizations, dialogues, charts, affirmations, and other activities to help you establish your own relationship with the cards. All the information is presented using the best in traditional knowledge and know-how. This powerful breakthrough process will turn all your readings into truly transformative experiences.

Tarot for Your Self covers interpretations for the major and minor arcana, reversed card meanings for all 78 cards, and enlightening information on your shadow/teacher cards.


“Without a doubt, Tarot for Your Self was and remains one of the most influential tarot books I’ve ever read. Greer’s work shines a light into darkness and guides us as we learn about ourselves and the cards more deeply.” — Barbara Moore, author and creator of, Steampunk Tarot, Tarot in Wonderland, and Llewellyn’s Little Book of Tarot

“Mary K. Greer’s Tarot For Your Self revolutionized the world of Tarot like no other book before or since. At a time when almost all tarot books were either formulas for fortune-telling, or complicated occult doctrines—and virtually everyone said you must never read for yourself—Mary Greer broke open the rules by showing us how to explore the many ways we ourselves could discover meaning and the power in the cards. She did not simply ignore, or discard, what had gone before. Instead, she studied and absorbed the meanings and teachings, and then showed us how to use them for our own explorations. It is a pleasure—and a moment of great benefit to the tarot world—to see this magical book in a new edition.” —Rachel Pollack, author of Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom

“If you’re looking to deepen your relationship to the tarot, look no further than Mary K. Greer’s classic Tarot for Your Self. The exercises, meditations, rituals, and other activities will help you connect with the cards in a meaningful way. The interpretation section in the back is pure gold—and one that you’ll refer to again and again. Both the tarot novice and seasoned pro will find Greer’s book to be a useful, transformative tool. This new edition is sure to delight and inspire a whole new era of tarot fans around the world.” —Theresa Reed, author of The Tarot Coloring Book, coauthor of Tarot for Troubled Times
