More About the Author

Hello! I have been reading and interpreting the Tarot for 30 years for clients across the United States and Great Britain as well as throughout Ohio; where I currently reside with my hubby Rick (who gave Tarot Dynamics its' name) as well as Suzy Q, our Spoiled Rottenweiler, Cagney, our Good Sheppard and Buddy our Super-Spaniel. Now that I've launched my new Web Site www.Tarotdynamics.com in between reading for clients and gathering additional Website material I've also begun my second book, "Advanced Tarot Dynamics" . Don't let the title intimidate you. Though more informative, I promise it will be just as clear as well as easy to read and understand as Tarot Dynamics. In the past I have appeared on Television and radio programs and taught private classes including Tarot and Psychic Development classes in Adult Education programs. On Saturday May 1, 2010, I delivered the first lecture of my series entitled Bringing The Tarot Into The 21st Century at the Midwest Astrologers Conference at the Doubletree Inn in Cleveland, Ohio. This was a large event and I was honored to be on their Metaphysical Faculty, as well as, guest speaker, courtesy of Sandra Leigh Serio (President of the Rocky Mountain Astrologers Association) who was also kind enough to give Tarot Dynamics a "thumbs-up" in her December 2009 Newsletter. On Saturday May 8, I continued Bringing the Tarot Into the 21st Century at Barnes & Noble at Crocker Park Square in Westlake, Ohio who hosted my first book-signing.
As of November 2010 I became a member of THE Tarot Guild and have been making frequent appearances on the Blog Talk Internet Radio Shows,chiefly Beyond Worlds and especially the Tarot Guilds, Tarot Today show where on Saturday January 22 I'll begin a series of Tarot Dynamics classes.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best guides to learn tarot 11 May 2012
By P. Nagy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Okay, you finally succumbed. You bought a pretty deck of tarot cards and have been happy enough just looking at the pictures for a while, but now what to do with them? Sure you want to share the pictures with your friends, but isn't there some mystery to unpack in them? The way the tarot reader at the county faire looks at the cards and talks about your secret life with uncanny insight. Yikes was that an embarrassment! How do you begin to read them? The little white book (LWB) says a few things, but so far the readings based on those directions seem a bit stilted and farfetched, hardly the drama of self-insight you experienced before.

Go to the bookstore and look a good book on tarot reading. There are hundreds of them, almost all cover the basics about the cards and layouts and the rudiments of reading for yourself and others. Is one just about as good as another? Well yes, and no. Many books are written by tarot artists as a chore or justification for the way they redrew classic tarot motifs. Even more are written by experienced tarot readers with decades of experience reading for people of all types. They have plenty to say about the way they have learned to read the cards. I try to read just about any book on tarot that is published, because I am a tarot reader with decades of experience who is curious to know what my colleagues have to say that may refresh the way I read. I really appreciate that they share their experience and rules of thumb for card reading. However as much as I try to read every book on tarot, (I do not get to them all folks), I rarely feel moved to write about the books I do read.

A successful tarot book needs to do several things: Cover the basics of tarot deck, spreads and card images for beginners, adding a few special zingers here and there especially for the professionals, and display the humor, humane insight and wisdom of how the cards work in readings. Probably most books, not written to introduce a particular deck, are professional calling cards for tarot readers who also teach how to read tarot.

If you know a tarot reader you are comfortable with see if she (most tarot readers are women) or he (a few tarot readers are men) teach a tarot class to get you comfortable with the basics of tarot reading. If you do not know of a tarot reader, seek out tarot interest groups in and around your community or through the internet and cyber social media may help. Face to face contact with people who share some fascination with tarot may very well empower you to want to read for yourself, but some may well drive you away as a bunch of oddballs. (Do not let that discourage you, plenty of normal people read and collect tarot cards).

In all the tarot books I try to read, some especially standout for their learning and exemplar vision of the tarot. The one I want to especially recommend now is ideal for the newbie tarot reader. Anna Burroughs Cook has been reading for over 30 years and has developed a straightforward and thorough system for introducing and empowering people new to tarot card reading. I first encountered her system with her first book, Tarot Dynamics, a few years ago and have recommended it as a solid invitation into how to read tarot in spreads with confidence and competence. Now Cook offers a fresh take on tarot for new readers in the new edition, Tarot Dynamics Unleashed (Kima Global Publishers: ISBN978-1-920533-07-6). It seems to follow the structure and pattern of her first book but it shows a total rewrite.

The strengths of Tarot Dynamics Unleashed include her choice of illustrative deck: The Rider-Waite-Smith (RWS) is because of its many variants or clones, illustrates the most common tarot imagery in many tarot decks available in America. There are now plenty of decks out there that do not follow the RWS pattern, but for generic tarot card interpretations the RWS pattern has set the common meanings of tarot cards no matter the unique art work.

Anna Cook also adapts a number system that assigns a number to each of the 78 cards. She begins with the Magician as 1 through to the unnumbered Fool as 22, then the suits, Wands, Cups, Swords, Pentacles, beginning with the Courts, King (for example: 23W, 37C, 51S, 65P), Queen, Knight, Page and following Ace through 10 of the pips for each suit in order. I find this analytical convention well overdue and underutilized in general tarot discussions, and am pleased to recommend this system of enumeration which she adopted from Faith Javane's and Dusty Bunker's tarot numerology classic, Numerology and the Divine Triangle. Identifying each card with its own number helps to keep in mind which card has which illustration.

Another strong point is Cook is thorough and consistent with classic tarot card associations, often patchily dealt with or mentioned in many tarot books. Numerological and astrological correspondences are integrated into primary reading information and key words and strong ways to understand the Major Arcana, well proportioned Court card orientation and useful ways of discovering themes for the pips or as she calls them the subject cards. In fact, the true power of Tarot Dynamics Unleashed is the lively way everything she proposes synthesizes into a cohesive integral reading style that as a underpinning will serve any new tarot reader well, no matter what bells and whistles you eventually add to your tarot reading skill.

There are other solid reasons I would suggest this volume to the tarot beginner but here are my top two. Everything you will learn initially will offer a firm foundation that you will not have to unlearn as you progress in tarot knowledge and practice. And finally, it is so well designed, that you can pick up the book and read from her card glosses and begin right off to figure out what that selection of random cards could possibly mean right now. Once you done that a time or two take my advice and read the book through too! Soon you will be a better tarot reader than me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unleashed and Off the Hook 6 July 2012
By Amanda Hilbrecht - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Anna Burroughs Cook, author of Tarot Dynamics, has taken her innovative concept forward and super charged it in her latest offering, Tarot Dynamics Unleashed, published by Kima Global Publishing, 2011.

Anna offers a system of learning that can firmly root your readings in the cards, giving your intuition room to work within the system, for readings and timings that are eerily accurate. While I am aware that some people can do free form tarot readings with great success, my observation of many students and fellow readers has led me to believe most people read and learn most effectively within a system, and the Tarot Dynamics one is great!

It seems to be en vogue today to use tarot as only a psychological tool, for insight, to talk about our feelings, but I firmly believe it is also useful as a tool for divination, which simply put, means to tell the future. Anna makes no apologies for her willingness to predict events, and her system allows for both psychologically based readings as well as fortune telling ones (and it is my belief that a good reading addresses both things, is the Seeker desires).

In the Tarot Dynamics system, you will learn a specific number, from 1-78, for each card, and using numerology you will be able to break each card down into a core meaning. Each card is illustrated with a large black and white image from the Waite Smith deck, and Anna encourages you to place your own card over the image as you study, so that any deck you prefer to use is relate-able to her system. Anna does something not enough teachers do, in my opinion, which is offer a range of meaning to each card, so there are no "good" nor "bad" cards. There are simply cards, and how you string them together depends on their relationship to the other cards in the spread (don't worry; you learn how to do this in the book, too!).

There are several spreads in the book, and the best chapter, in my opinion, is Tarot Dynamics & The Moon in Astrology. There are plenty of books that link tarot and astrology, but few that deal with The Moon, which is the seat of our emotional life, astrologically speaking. Her view on the Court Cards will help you get a handle on these most slippery of cards, as well, and that is invaluable.

If you are like me, with many, many books about tarot, or have been reading for a while, you will want to know why this is a good book for you. Simply put, one can never have too many tools in the box for reading and interpreting cards, and this book gives a thoughtful, well rounded tool that you can reach for at any time. A friend and teacher once likened reading tarot to playing a game of 3D chess, and the more techniques you know for interpreting cards the more levels you can play on.

If you are new to tarot, this book will give you a firm foundation as to meanings of the cards, and it will help you expand your intuition. You will be able to relate what you learn in this book to the cards for as long as you are a reader, and it is a good investment in your education. You don't have to do anything in tarot by anyone elses' rules but knowledge always equals power, so it is good to learn as much as possible, regardless of your reading level.

I recommend this book for tarotistas of any level, and using its' techniques will help you spot patterns and themes in your readings to take them to a new level. Anna writes in a clear, concise manner that is easy to read, and once you put her words into practice you will understand her concepts.

Anna has a great website you can visit, Tarot Dynamics, and runs a group for it on Facebook, if you are so inclined to visit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unleash Your Creativity! 5 April 2012
By Bonnie Cehovet - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
"May you have the foresight to know where you are going,the hindsight to know where you've been,and the insight to know where you are." ~~~ Irish Proverb

This lovely Irish proverb is placed at the beginning of "Tarot Dynamics Unleashed", and brings the whole book into focus. The Tarot is all about the past, how it brought you to your present, and how your present is creating your future. Based on Anna Burroughs Cook's first book, "Tarot Dynamics", it includes the basics from that book (the five basic keywords for each card, the characteristics inherent in the five suits, basic Tarot spread information, and formatting that allows the reader to use the deck of their choice in their readings.

What has been added opens up a whole new world, and a whole new depth of reading! You will see how numerology and Tarot work together, find the missing link between Tarot and astrology, find out what the "Fallen" cards are, and how to interpret them, and expand your understanding of the Tarot through the Numerological and Astrological sections.

There is a section on Do's and Don't, the inclusion of a romance sub-category in each of the Cups, and on all of the Court Cards, a section on reading Majorities in the Celtic Cross spread, Tarot in relationship to the Moon, and much more.

This is a wonderful reference book, a great book for beginning readers, a book that will take intermediate readers to the next level, and a book that will help advanced readers blend the old with the new. Something for everyone!A definite "thumbs up" to "Tarot Dynamics Unleashed"!
5.0 out of 5 stars Tarot Dynamics on steroids! 22 Jun 2012
By Theresa Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If you are a fan of Anna Burroughs Cooks first book, Tarot Dynamics, you will surely want to get a copy of her newest work, Tarot Dynamics Unleashed (Kina Publishing ISBN: ).

This new offering is a repeat of her previous work BUT with a lot more content - making this book more like "Tarot Dynamics on Steroids!" The book contains the same Dos and Don'ts, keywords, timing and card descriptions written in the author's frank and friendly style.

But this time she also goes into more details about numerology, fallen cards, plus the "missing link" between astrology and tarot. Her concept on tarot and astrology is different than anything I have ever read and I found it to be worth investigating further. She also includes a detailed chapter on tarot and the moon in astrology that was intriguing.

Throughout the book, Cook offers some stories from her years of reading tarot to illustrate her methods. I always find that to be helpful when trying to digest information. And there is a lot in this little book to process. At times I was a bit overwhelmed with the Tarot Dynamics method - but when I actually took the time to apply what I was reading, I "got it" much quicker.

The book is illustrated with the Rider Waite tarot, which will please fans of that deck - but her method can be used with ANY deck and that is one of the things she stresses in the book. If you understand her system, you can pretty much read any tarot deck you like.

The only issue I had with the book is that it needed a wee bit more editing. There were a few typos here and there that should have been caught. It wasn't enough to take away from the value of the book however. I would recommend this book to newbie tarot readers, fans of the author's previous work or anyone who is looking for a new method for more accurate readings.
