Product Description


Rather than an arcane craft, tarot can be a tool for understanding and resolving situations and problems in contemporary life. But enlightenment won't be achievable if readers rely on out-dated and historical interpretations - and this is the true value of Tarot Today. By modernizing the meanings of the cards and showing how they relate to the way people live now, it enables readers to gain and share insights that apply directly to their personal, family, working and social lives. By using the book, you will not only master the meanings of all the different cards but will be able to find the answers to specific questions as well as to direct the course of the rest of your life. The Tarot is enjoying a popular and widespread revival. Just as astrology continues to thrive in its Sun-sign format in newspapers and magazines, the Tarot is now also a regular feature in daily, weekly or monthly publications. There are also Tarot phonelines, psychic fairs, workshops and information on the Internet.

- Tarot is a craft that anyone can learn and this book presents the Tarot as a widely accessible acquired skill, with its own special brand of magic - Very practical - Advice and exercises for gaining and sharing insights about the cards in a contextual setting - Cast light on contemporary problems and situations - Guidelines for consultations and for wearing the 'tarot-reader's hat' - Suitable for people wanting to learn the Tarot from scratch but with plenty of information and working examples for the more advanced student - Focuses on the content of readings - Fully illustrated in colour

5.0 out of 5 stars A really real book on tarot 28 July 2003
I have always been interested in tarot, but have never until now found a book that is so relevent 'to today' (as the title says). 'Tarot for Today' discards age old hocus pocus tactics, focusing on the realities surrounding a subject that is entwined in myth and superstition and generally regarded as a load of old rubbish. Not only does this book clear up these issues in the first few pages, it proves a fascinating read, detailing every single card in a way I am sure has never been done before. The book tries, and succeeds, in dispensing with the stigma attached to the craft of the tarot and gives the reader a confidence that many other books do not. It is made clear from the beginning that 'divination' is not something to be relied on, and that the author is not in the business of 'fortune telling' so much as wearing the "therapists hat". So, instead of being submerged in the deep end of mystical symbolism, we are presented with clear charts, a fresh outlook and fascinating insights. Personally, I felt that the plain english, clear layout and fantastic artwork and photography throughout the book made it a joy to read.
The book is based on fact and on the authors obviously extensive experience. Almost every card is related back to a reading she has done, which makes it so much easier to understand the cards in practice and the way that meanings and symbolism associated with a particular card can subtly or explicitly change depending on the person being read for, and the relationship of the card to others in the spread. Although the traditional meaning of each card is given, as well as the astrological links, it is the authors personal experiences and modern situatons that the cards deal with that really bring the book to life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Written by a Master Teacher 14 Oct 2013
By Jane R
I have studied with Joanna in beautiful Nidri and can honestly say she is a fantastic teacher. She has the gift of being able to make a difficult subject seem very graspable. With many years of hands-on experience Joanna cuts through the maze of confusing information about the cards and describes each one with clarity. She gives real-life situations so that you can really understand each card and how it relates to modern every-day life. This makes remembering the meanings a lot easier. Joanna also gives useful info on spreads and how to give readings for other people. I have quite a few tarot books but this one is my favourite.
