If you are looking for a book that will take you step-by-step through your tarot deck and teach you the meanings of each card, keep on walking - this is not the book for you. However, if you are looking for a fun book about tarot that will help you warm up to that new deck you just purchased and give you a few laughs along the way, look no further. You have found the book you seek!
This book is not a how-to book - no in-depth analysis of card meanings or layouts of tarot spreads. Just 78 fun activities for you and your cards that will help you get to know your cards like you would get to know a new friend - by spending light and easy time together, just 'messing around'.
I can see how many of the activities will help you to discover the meanings of your cards, but that is almost a by-product of the simple act of spending quality time with your new friend: your tarot deck. Some of the activities are downright silly (in activity one, for example, part of the activity is to get a random stranger to take a photo of you and your new tarot deck! Haha!), but I can see how this is a great way to get to know your cards without making everything so bleeping serious!
Although this book does not teach tarot meanings, spreads, or historical background, I would even recommend it for beginners, the reason being that so much of the beginner's literature is so intense and there is such a huge learning curve that tarot can easily become a very intimidating thing. This book takes the pressure off, and reminds you that learning tarot is supposed to be FUN!
