Pythagorean Tarot review by Kate Hill

Available on the Internet for about five years, the Pythagorean Tarot has been published and in now available in the non-virtual world. Llewellyn has released the 78 card deck, along with a veritable tome to accompany and explain the deeper esoteric meanings behind the cards. The Guide to the Pythagorean Tarot is more than 450 pages in length, making it probably the thickest book I ever have seen packaged with tarot cards. It delves deeply into Greek and Roman mythology and the ancient Greek mysteries.

Pythagorus was an ancient Greek mathematician, famous to most high school students for creating the theorem for right angle triangles. What is lesser known is that he was also a magician and philosopher and his ideas are part of the basis of Western magical and occult thinking.
