1.0 out of 5 stars Great Tarot deck but disappointing book 2 Jun 2007
By Lilly Penhaligon TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Having just bought my first pack of tarot cards from the same author (Sharman-Casselli deck and book set), I couldn't wait to enhance my understanding of the tarot with this book. However, my excitement quickly turned to disappointment when I received this book. For each card in the deck, you get one page with a few lines (I mean literally about 4 or 5 lines) of interpretation for that card plus some rather meaningless statements from real students of hers in wihch they describe which evens in their lives that card makes them remember. On the opposite page to the card, you get a black and white copy of it for you to colour in yourself with colours of your own choosing and then you are told to engage in some free association. Although I am only a beginner, I have already read a few books on the tarot and I can honestly say, this book did not teach me one single thing I didn't already know.

This was a real disappointment and I wouldn't recommend. It's a real shame as I have bought her card and booklet set which was utterly fantastic. The deck is exquisite and so easy to connect to, even for a beginner and the 192 page 'booklet' that comes wiht it, is in depth, informative and contains a whole two page spread for each card. It offers examples of spreads and sample readings which were most interesting. If you already own this card and book set, you definitely do not need this separate workbook. I don't think it is anything more than a colouring book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great expectations.... 19 April 2007
Format:Paperback
The Sharman-Caselli deck is one of my favourites, and when this workbook was published, I expected a practical follow-up to Juliet Sharman-Bourke's Beginner's Guide to Tarot (card + book set) with plenty of exercises based on her cards. As a Tarot teacher I'm always on the lookout for different ways of teaching Tarot, however, when I received this book I felt that there was not much new offered here.

The idea of this book is to help Tarot students develop a deeper and more personal understanding of the cards. For each card you find a black-and white image printed separately on a journaling page, on which you can record your own meanings. You can copy these pages and colour in the cards yourself. This is actually a nice touch - a good and practical way to familiarise yourself with colour meanings and symbology as well as the image itself.

In addition to the brief description of each card, personal accounts of Tarot students are included, which offer further insight and another way of stimulating your own personal ideas about the card meanings. Basically, it's about relating each card to your events in your own life or that of family or friends, a method, which has been much better covered by Mary K. Greer and Joan Bunning.

Towards the end of the book, there is an interesting suggestion about `creative interpretation' of the cards. You do this by pulling three cards and tell a story with them - a great idea for people who enjoy creative writing and wish to develop that skill.

There are some interesting spreads explained (including the famous `Celtic Cross') and presented on journal-style pages, which can be copied and for you to fill in.

Overall, for fans of the Sharman-Caselli deck, this may well be worth buying, but really you don't need this book if you already possess one of these: 'Learning the Tarot' (Joan Bunning) or '21 Ways to read a Tarot Card' (Mary K. Greer).

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A wonderful book - claimed to be one of the originals in terms of how the designs were chosen and worked on and is an easy format and layout to use. Just started to look at how the tarot can assist in lifes choices and using the workbook helps keep track of changes and differences.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Creative Way to Increase Your Knowledge of Tarot 21 July 2005
By Janet Boyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
"Colouring in the archetypal images will stimulate your imagination unconsciously. As the divinatory meanings start to unfold automatically, the images will soon start to feel like old friends." -Juliet Sharman-Burke

The Tarot Workbook was created for tarot readers eager to increase their knowledge of the cards and improve their ability to read them. This fun book features 78 blank card images for you to color in any way you desire: crayons, markers, colored pencils, etc. While the blank images are based on the Sharman-Caselli deck, the Tarot Workbook can be used with any set of Tarot cards.

By engaging the archetypal symbols and themes directly-through coloring the images and choosing a personalized color scheme-we approach the cards in a less intellectual, more intuitive way. According to Sharman-Burke, this is exactly the approach needed to unlock the secrets of Tarot.

The author takes a few pages to describe the Minor Arcana, the four elements, the symbolism of numbers 1 (Ace) through 10, Court Cards and the Major Arcana. Although she doesn't spend much time on theory, what she *does* share is packed with solid, helpful insights.

The Tarot Workbook features a coloring exercise and a personal association exercise designed so readers can form a more intuitive, personalized rapport with the Tarot. For example, with the Ace of Pentacles, Sharman-Burke asks us to think about the earth and all aspects of the earthy element-and to consider the different types of flowers and what they may represent (e.g. roses for passion, lilies for purity). She then encourages us to reflect on our own experience with matters of finance-what money means to us, how we use it, and how we would apply this to the Ace of Pentacles as a symbol of new beginnings.

On the left side of the book is a brief overview of the card meaning and several comments by students of Sharman-Burke. It's interesting to read how individuals of varying age and life experience interpret the cards. On the right side of the page is the blank image to color with about nine lines to record your impressions. The author divides this area into three parts:

1. What this means in my life

2. Readings in which it was significant

3. Reading record sheet

I didn't find the last two helpful, so I just whited out the text so I could have a blank paragraph to write what I wanted to. To the left and right of the card are white spaces dedicated to Name, Place, Date, and Time. Sharman-Burke doesn't explain what these are for, however. I got out the liquid paper, again, and just made them blank rectangles in which to write associations and key words.

The front and back covers of the book feature glossy flaps depicting the entire Sharman-Caselli deck in full color. However, readers are encouraged to formulate their own color schemes and "bank" of card associations.

The Tarot Workbook by Juliet Sharman-Burke provides an engaging, hands-on study which is *perfect* for kinesthetic (physical) learners or those wishing to approach learning the Tarot in a more intuitive, creative manner. By familiarizing yourself with card images in this way, a stream of information bypasses the critical, rational mind and bubbles into consciousness. Whether coming from the archetypal collective of the unconscious or personal experience, these associations become more solidified in the psyche of the reader.

I'm really enjoying coloring the card images and writing commentaries on each card based on events from my life and from other symbolic, mystical disciplines. It's interesting to see how new meanings rise to the surface by the act of choosing particular colors and taking them time to color each card image.

5.0 out of 5 stars A thoroughly "user friendly" guide and consumable workbook 5 Oct 2005
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Utilizing the classic Sharman-Caselli tarot deck, practicing analytic psychotherapist and astrologist Juliet Sharman-Burke draws upon her considerable expertise to provide a thoroughly "user friendly" guide and consumable workbook that will enable even the most novice metaphysical student to learn how they can read tarot cards. Black-and-white illustrations of each card, along with a summary of the card's implications and a section of lines for the reader to write down reflections comprise the majority of the down-to-basics fortune telling book. Charts laying out sample Tarot spreads and color pictures of the Sharman-Caselli tarot deck on the paperback dust jacket round out this highly accessible and easy-to-use guide.
