Your Tarot Guide for Personal Development: EXSTATICA
If you are committed to living a meaningful life, the Tarot guide “EXSTATICA” is the reading for you. It focuses on identifying what matters to you. So you can align your life to your purpose, including your cognition, emotion, behavior. It brings a fresh perspective to the persona development use of tarot cardsl. It does it with the so called “Mantegna Tarot”. This Tarot deck was designed during the Renaissance, in Italy. The first ten cards of the Mantegna Tarot belong to the Sphere of Behavior. The cards from 11 to 20, belong to the Sphere of Emotion. From 21 to 30, to the Sphere of Cognition. And the outer Sphere of Meaning includes the cards from 31 to 50.
This approach has illustrious precedents. For example, Carl Jung was aware of the power of Tarot cards as a psychological tool for individuation. To explore our unconscious, both personal and collective, and integrate different aspects of ourselves. He considered having his colleagues to test if using Tarot, I Ching, Alchemy, etc. all together would have lead a client to receive compatible messages from each of this methods.
You do not need to buy a Mantegna Tarot deck to use this book. The Tarot cards are printed inside the book, on regular pages. If you like, you can cut them out, glue them to cardboard, and cut out each card. Back-pages were intentionally left blank, to ensure cards can be cut without affecting the text of the book. EXSTATICA can also be practiced with the Tarot of Marseille, Rider-Waite Tarot, Thoth Tarot, Visconti Sforza Tarot, Sola Busca Tarot, and other major contemporary and historic Tarot decks. It has been authored by Shanti and Frank Ra. It is available at independent bookstores and online.
