Review by Isthmus Nekoi Prior to reading 78 Degrees, everything I'd read by Pollack made references to Jewish mysticism, germantia, the tree of life.
This woman, I thought, must know her Sephira inside out. So I must admit, my expectations were rather high. However, 78 Degrees is more of a beginner's book and does not delve deeply into the relation between tarot and qabalah or any other system for that matter. For novices, this is a great introductory text to whet the appetite and to inspire a reader towards deeper research and I'm surprised that it is being marketed as an in depth or advanced study.
As an academic and someone who has studied the same topics Pollack engages - depth psychology, mythology, world religions etcetera - I found the content lacking and far from in depth. Pollack frequently laces her commentary with sweeping generalizations or random facts about the human condition without contextualizing them nor addressing their deep complexity.
She'll derive quick conclusions about Western cultural values like free will and individualism without bothering to really analyze them. While there isn't any need to have extensive footnotes for any of these statements, writing about them as if they can be satisfactorily explained so simplistically and apolitically is problematic for anyone approaching with a more academic mindset or desiring a more substantial, challenging text.
However, the watering down of complex spiritual and psychological issues is something of a disappointment.
Despite this, the book does have many strengths. No, it does not. Pollack's misrepresentations, in several cases, are not random. Rather, they are part of the received dogma of New Age thought. These are: 1. Christianity is an oppressive, totalitarian, violent, misogynist, destructive system.
Before the evil Christians showed up, people around the world enjoyed peaceful goddess worship 46 3. All over the world, once a year, priestesses representing the goddess would kill and dismember the male leader of the tribe 50, All religions have at their core the same truth: people must transcend ego and join with the one. None of the above postulates are true.
In spite of their falsity, Many New Agers uphold them as dogma. Pollack has a problem with masculinity and "patriarchal society.
The Emperor card represents the best in essential masculinity. Pollack reads it as a negative card referencing "force, aggression and war" an old, stiff, rigid, lifeless, barren scene, society and its laws, people who have never realized that their father is just a human being, people who surrender control of their lives to their lovers. Compare this to her reading of the Queen of Cups, depicting an emotional and spiritual woman.
Most interpretations acknowledge that this woman has her failings; she can be overcome by her heart.
Pollack, though, reads this feminine card as almost all positive, while reading the male Knight of Cups and King of Cups as almost all negative. Again and again, Pollack insists that the pinnacle of the Tarot is to become a hermaphrodite.
This is not true — tarot is a powerfully and traditionally gendered system depicting nurturing, maternal females and active, horse-riding and sword-wielding males. But Pollack herself identifies as a transsexual.
The message: I am transsexual; therefore, everyone else should aspire to be a hermaphrodite. Forget the church; rather, read comic books for your spiritual guidance Pollack is a comic book author. Schizophrenics are misunderstood by rigid, Christian society.

Schizophrenics are really shamans The Christian church crushed women It is precisely to avoid this iriner voice that many people never rest from action and movement. Koetting, in the world's most powerful books of the Left Hand Path.
And yet, her inner knowledge does not belong to that radiant centre of nothingness that enables the Fool to act so freely. Like a Soviet-era photographer, she merely airbrushes out of her revisionist history anything that does not suit her purpose. The Fool represents true.
