The Alchemical Visions Tarot brings the promise of the Magnum Opus—the Great Work—to travelers on the modern path. Combining Jungian psychology and ancient alchemy, mysticism, and mythology, world-renowned artist Arthur Taussig has created a powerful tool for self-transformation—a Tarot for personal alchemy and psychic health. These complex and beautiful cards are rich with multiple layers of symbolism and are meant to be studied one by one so that each card becomes a key to unlocking the subconscious mind. Each card is an important stop on the Traveler’s journey from an unconscious state to one of integrated conscious wholeness.
The Alchemical Visions Tarot and this accompanying book present the cards as a journey— or rather, as a process known in alchemy as the Great Work (Magnum Opus). The ancient alchemists used this term to describe working with the prima materia to create the Philosopher’s Stone. But here we are not concerned with the transmutation of matter perse, but how the Great Work is a metaphor for the process of unlocking the deep secrets of the subconscious mind, the “alchemical” process of integrating darkness and light, the above and the below, the “yes” and “no,” the Anima and Animus, what is known and unknown—the process of individuation, self-consciousness, and becoming whole.
