5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond the Celtic Cross, 28 Dec 2009
This review is from: Beyond the Celtic Cross: Secret Techniques for Taking Tarot to an Exciting New Level (Paperback)
Having long been a fan of Paul Hughes-Barlow's website Supertarot and more recently of Catherine Chapman's blog TarotElements I eagerly awaited publication of this book and I haven't been disappointed. I haven't ever really been a fan of the Celtic Cross Tarot spread although I can see that it is very useful so I was interested to see what was beyond it, as this book promised on the cover. The technique described takes a Celtic Cross reading and then re-reads it using the card counting techniques which are adequately illustrated. I had tried several years ago to learn this technique but couldn't really "get it" but the way that Paul and Catherine describe the steps in the book, made it much easier to understand. So I then tried this method with an actual reading for myself. The Celtic Cross spread I laid out was OK but a bit ambiguous in places and I didn't gain much insight from the interpretation. I then re-did the spread using the card counting technique and the reading came to life and made absolute sense - I was amazed and so pleased that it actually "worked".
I was going to describe this book as not one for beginners but then I thought "why not". There is something for all levels of experience to learn in this book and a beginner could do a lot worse than learn these techniques from the start. Also explored are the rules of Elemental Dignities, card pairing methods, Elemental bases and the power of the Aces.
The journey through this book opens up new experiences of interpretation and insight to take Tarot readings to exciting new levels.I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone wishing to further their Tarot learning experience.
