Tarot, a Semiotic View

A number of people have asked about this article, which has not been available online for some time now. I am again offering it as a pdf download at Lulu.com.

The article offers a very basic introduction to semiotics and then explains how occult ideas about meaning resonate with semiotic ones, and how Tarot is indeed a language of signs and symbols. The evolution of the suit of Wands is examined in some detail as an example of how meanings of cards can change over time but still hold true to certain central themes.
