A guided journey through the archetypes and symbolism of tarot, as interpreted by the artist behind Tarot of the Divine, the tarot deck rooted in multicultural deities, folklore, and fairytales.

Reading tarot cards is both an art and a mindfulness practice.

Yoshitani describes the art and archetypes of the Major and Minor Arcana in Tarot of the Divine, outlining the cards’ key interpretations and visual symbols. Throughout, the vivid art and fascinating background prompt you to explore the Fool’s Journey, interact with the cards in new ways, and apply your learnings to any of your favorite decks.

Tarot of the Divine Handbook


The power of tarot has always run in its rich symbolism. Today, there are agreed upon meanings for each of the seventy-eight cards in a deck, but how an individual decides to interpret the cards before them is where the true majesty of tarot flourishes. This is why each deck, coupled with the unique experiences a reader brings to the table, provides a dizzying and sometimes overwhelming range of possibilities for interpretation. This handbook is here to help.

I created this book to help any tarot reader—from brand-new to experienced readers—form a deeper understanding of tarot. With symbolism breakdowns, unique exercises, and guided ritual suggestions, readers of all experiences will strengthen their understanding of tarot and connection with their intuition.

While my insights are specific to Tarot of the Divine, this handbook can be used as a jumping-off point for interpreting the art in your favorite deck. Card by card, you will come to understand the archetypes and symbolism, and by the end of this book you’ll have a comprehensive understanding of Tarot of the Divine and a broad understanding of tarot as a whole. As you grow and change, so will your perception and intuition. Use the blank space in this book to record your readings, interpretations, and new-found knowledge.


Symbolism. Relationships. Insight.

We begin with the fundamentals of tarot and the systems they are built on. Alongside a series of card interpretations, you will notice blank pages for your personal use. These spaces are for you to fill with your own insights and experiences.

Document your relationship to a particular card and track your interactions with it. Reference this book during your readings. Record any personal associations you develop as you study the cards. As you fill in these pages, you will develop your own vocabulary and perception of your tarot deck (or decks!). If you completely fill up the pages, feel free to use another journal, or pick up a new workbook and consider how your connection to the cards is constantly evolving.

The last section of this book has pages of exercises, activities, and spreads to help deepen your associations with the cards. You may use these ideas to fill in the card pages of the workbook.
