"The Tarot of Perfection" is a wonderful collection of short stories with deep esoteric meanings - stories that one could easily believe were written by some ancient Master, and translated for our edification. They carry a mythical quality to them, and are written in such a manner that every time they are read (and I for one intend to read them many times over!) some new truth, some new understanding will emerge.
The stories pull you in, and transport you to another world - and to worlds within that other world. They are magickal, fast moving, and absolutely amazing!
Take another look at the woman pictured on the front cover. Clearly her white face is meant to be a mask. But take another look at her shoulders and arms. To me, t hey have a very porcelan look that indicates that the entire person is wearing a mask, and that if I watch long enough, it will fall away, piece-by-piece, with a whole new person emerging. How often do each of us feel this way about ourselves? Scary, eh!
I was impressed that Rachel listed soemone from her life at the end of each story, indicating that this was who the story was written for. If the reader pays close attention, there is also a fleeting mention of a current Tarot wise-woman that will be familiar to many in the Tarot world.
This is a book that I recommend for someone who is interested in Tarot, someone who is interested in personal/spiritual growth, and someone who is interested in good stories!
