Heart of Tarot Review, 5 Nov 2002
The book isn't quite what I expected - it's far more in fact. Although it has standard interpretations for the cards, the book is designed more to make the reader/student think for themselves and use their own intuitive interpretations and also gives space for the student to write their own notes regarding interpretations.
The whole of the Major Arcana is covered but not every card in the Minor Arcana, which may disappoint some beginners but students will soon realise that they are not needed.
I don't really think the sample Tarot readings section was necessary - but then I don't like them sample readings anyway - but that's a personal viewpoint!!
The spreads section is good and the section dealing with reading as a professional is excellent and shows how to deal with tricky customers.
The section on teaching the Tarot is short but good for those who do wish to teach - it gives fresh ideas for classes as well as suggested class structures.
