Creative Tarot: Calvino, both in Castle and his other writings, worked extensively with fairy-tale story lines and imagery. Travelers lost in snowstorms and forests, magical and inexplicable happenings, characters of royalty, peasantry, and nomads. There’s a man who climbs into a tree and refuses to come down. There are cities built out of words, cities built out of dreams. So, of course, a writer like that would be drawn to the tarot—they all spring from the same realm.

Becoming fluent in seeing how archetypal qualities may manifest in everyday human concerns is the essential skill that a Tarot reader needs to develop.
