From the Author
Many tarotists read the cards as if they’re decoding a message. Accordingly, they depend a great deal upon precise, univalent meanings that they can memorize. That’s fine, but the understanding of how tarot works is evolving. Chrysalis should never be read simply by rote. It’s multivalent, dynamic, and should be read through the perceptive lens of one’s Third Eye using the innate faculties of intuition, instinct and active imagination.
This companion book will teach you how to sharpen these faculties and introduce you to the exciting new worldview of a living, connected universe. We regard tarot spreads as jumping off points for meaningful, dynamic dialogue with divine realms, the definition of divination. Readers who depend upon precise card interpretations and rigid consistency will likely be dissatisfied with this book and should save their money. Chrysalis Tarot is the telephone, not the conversation.
