Dr. Robert Wang developed The Jungian Tarot as a “visual gateway into the complexities of Jungian psychology” to aid in the process of active imagination proposed by Carl Jung. The 22 Major Arcana represent Jungian archetypes of the collective unconscious. The figures are visually presented with archways and circular mandalas, which aid in meditation. The deck is a companion to the Jungian Tarot Trilogy by Robert Wang.
The Jungian Tarot and Its Archetypal Imagery is a companion book to The Jungian Tarot Deck . The product of five years of research in consultation with the scholars at the C.G. Jung Institutes in New York and in Zurich, it carefully explains how each archetype interacts with the others and how the tarot can be viewed as a mirror of the human condition. Each trump card refers to one aspect of the dualities that Jung believed to be the key to the life process which he taught one has the capacity to resolve and thereby know the true meaning of life. And insofar as the cards represent key archetypes such as “Mother,” “Father,” “Son” and “Daughter,” the archetypes are considered cross-culturally and from the standpoints of many religions. For example, the High Priestess may be known as the Virgin Mary, as Isis, or as any pure and primary goddess. (Volume II of the Jungian Tarot Trilogy.
