More About the Author

I grew up in the Puget Sound area, and I have lived in the Seattle area for sixteen years. I have always had a passion for the written word, learning to read early and often. I got involved with my high school and college newspapers, writing opinion pieces and working on layout and design. I published my first magazine article at seventeen, and continued to write and publish articles through college. I graduated from The Evergreen State College in 1993, earning a BA in Liberal Arts with an emphasis in media and communications; there I studied media propaganda, literary journalism, and political science/economics.

In 1996 I started the research on tarot symbolism that eventually became my first book, The Thoth Companion. I also started giving public lectures and writing articles on the tarot and related subjects. When I began preparing my manuscript for submission, I discovered The Chicago Manual of Style, the bible of many book editors, and I developed an interest in editing. I realized I had a knack for editing work after helping Brandy Williams prepare her popular book, Practical Magic for Beginners, for submission to Llewellyn Publications in 2004.

While I had already taken a year of classes at North Seattle Community College to explore a possible career as a math teacher, my interest in numbers soon gave way to working with words. I eagerly enrolled in the Editing Certification Program at the University of Washington, which I completed in 2006. Unfortunately, after publishing and promoting The Thoth Companion in 2007-08, a medical accident left me with some serious health issues to deal with, delaying my debut as an professional editor for a couple of years.

I overcame those challenges and started preparing my second book, Conjuring Spirits, for release in 2010. During the publication process I also picked up a few clients, which led to more editing projects and opportunities. I joined the Editorial Freelancers Association soon thereafter to take advantage of the instruction and resources they have to offer. I truly enjoy editing work, and look forward to helping more authors and publishers make good books better.

I haven't owned a television for many years, so in my leisure time I enjoy reading books, researching, and writing. Particular topics of interest include cosmology, esotericism, Egyptology, symbolism, and linguistics. I have a large library, and I often browse used bookstores looking for new books of interest. An expanded and revised version of my second book will come out at the end of 2013, and I plan to write a third book, though I haven't yet chosen a subject.

I have had this book nearly one year now and so it is time for a review. As the title of the book states it is about the "True Symbolic Meaning" of the Thoth Tarot. It is therefore about the Thoth Tarot cards and pretty much useless for any other deck. It also focuses on the symbolism of each card (Major and Minor cards). This book is great for beginners who want to start to take the Thoth Tarot more seriously and actually understand the cards themselves.

The explanations are simple with a focus also on the meanings of particular colours on each card. The Tree of Life is mentioned in the book but is limited - this book is primarily about symbolism afterall.

It has a useful appendix with some tables in, for example, the zodiac signs and their ruling planets and symbols. It also has an Index (very rare these days) as well as a diagram of the Tree of Life with Tarot Attributions towards the front.

I like the simplicity of this book and the easiness of reading it whilst at the same time gleaning so much symbolic meaning. With an understanding of the meaning of the symbols you can do a more accurate reading.

This book forms a very good basis and grounding to develop your knowledge further. I have found that "The Crowley Tarot" by Akron Hajo BanZhaf is a good accompaniment to Snuffin's book. Both of these books could be supplemented with Lon Milo DuQuettes "Thoth Tarot" thus giving you a good grounding before reading Aleister Crowley's "Thoth Tarot".

I am always reaching for this book - even after 12 months.

I got this book as I am trying to work with the Thoth tarot more, being a novice at tarot, I wanted a book which would have a good explanation of the Thoth tarot. I've had the Thoth tarot for years, but have never felt connected with it.

This will be a great book for experienced readers of the Thoth deck, and those who are progressing with learning it. But if you're a beginner struggling to learn the Thoth tarot, then I think you'll struggle with this book. The reason is, you need to have some background of the tarot, astrology and kabbalah first.

However I do think it's a really good book, and I have put it away until the time I feel ready to pick it up again, when I am more advanced in tarot, and ready to learn the Thoth deck. This book has lots of charts in it, to help you with the cards etc.

Format: Paperback
I have found this book one of the most easy to read books on the subject of the Thoth that references Crowley's own materials and works. It is clearly laid out and covers all the main symbols on each card.

The introduction does clearly point out that this is not a beginners book and indeed, if you have never met the Qabala or the language of Thelemic magic, you may find the book hard going. However, there is a very good glossary of terms at the end of the book and several of the tables of correspondences in an appendix which, if used, can answer all your questions in a brief, but clear way.

Each card has its own section during which the various symbolic attributes of the card are discussed and their intended symbolism shown. There is more symbolism discussed in this book than I have seen in other similar types of books, though the discussions are kept to a few clear sentences rather than going into great detail - I feel this is a positive point as it is easier to see the meanings from an image rather than getting lost in in-depth discussion.

I found the interpretation section of each card a bit weak, though the book doesn't profess to be a handbook to interpretation - rather a handbook of symbolism which can be used to assist in pathworking or journeying, which it does well.

The chapter at the end of the book has some basic ideas about how to go about a tarot reading, and how to develop your intuition and, like the rest of the book, it is clearly and simply put and makes a good start for someone heading in this direction with the cards. But, if you are looking for some more depth to the processes involved here, you will need to find another source of information.

It is difficult to summarise this book because I suppose that in part it can be read on many levels. I would certainly have to say that while it is one that I read through from beginning to end it is not end of the matter for me. I will return to it again and again to chew over the words and illustrations. It will become I am sure a mine of information for meditation and reflection.
