5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful Tarot primer 4 July 1998
By Marygale Severance - Published on Amazon.com
"Understanding the Tarot" certainly lives up to its title. Previously, I had thought I would have to do a lot of memorizing, using the miniscule, ill-printed pamphlets that come with some decks. But here, clear, concise descriptions of each card using full color examples from 13 different decks, make the "understanding" come naturally. Various symbologies are touched upon as threads to aid comprehension. For example, the astrological relationships in suits and court cards will become obvious even before the third suit.
The basic interpretations of cards from the several decks include discussion of similarities and differences among them. This exposure also will help beginners find a deck that fulfills their expections. Sample readings in dialog format demonstrate five popular spreads in the final chapter on doing a reading.
This book has taken me from beginner level to merely inexperienced! I feel better able to digest the text-only material that I have collected and avoided until now.
After reading/using Juliet Sharman-Burke's "Understanding the Tarot," you may find, as I have, that the Tarot makes so much SENSE, you'll wonder what's so arcane about it, after all?

2.0 out of 5 stars What's in a spread 23 Sep 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Although this book has good explainations of the cards and very vivid pictures from various decks it lacks a good explaination of tarot spreads. It demonstrates a tarot spread through the first person by walking you through someome's personal reading. This only gives one interpretation of the location of the card within the tarot spread. There is no discussion on how the locations of the card within the spread relate to each other.
This is a good book to provide example to a beginner but those seeking more in depth knowledge will find it lacking.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excdeptional reference Guide 3 Jan 2014
By Mary L. Durgin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Am doing a tarot class and this guide assists me - often just the hidden meanings in the pictures on card help me to understand more what the cards deeper meanings are. I'm a neophyte at tarot and feel this is a great "dictionary" of meanings to assist my growth
