Creative Tarot: Their tools were automatic writingthe writer would write down whatever came to mind, no matter how silly or strange, trying not to control or judge the writing or where it would goand psychoanalysis, dream imagery, and things like the tarot. Salvador Dalí, arguably the most famous surrealist artist, was particularly intrigued by the tarot, and he seems to have been introduced to the cards by his wife, Gala. She was the more esoteric of the two, and her interest in the occult is well documented.

Tarot Triumphs: I suggest that you choose a straightforward Marseilles set of cards, not one where the High Priestess and the Pope are replaced by Juno and Jupiter, a pack often known as Tarot de Besançon; these look out of place among the other Trumps, especially for divinatory purposes.
