2.0 out of 5 stars The Tarot Bible by Sarah Bartlett, 30 Sept. 2007
This review is from: The Tarot Bible: Godsfield Bibles: The Definitive Guide to the Cards and Spreads (Paperback)
It does not give clear interpretations of the cards, the writer dislikes reversed cards. I am very disappointed with it. The spreads and history is ok. I would not recommend this book to a beginner and to call it comprehensive would be very untrue. Everyone I think would agree that a card presented the right way up will have the almost opposite meaning to one that is upside down. Well the author of this book has just mingled all meanings together. She has failed to mention seasonal connections with the cards as well as missing out alot of relevant informationon each individual card. The court cards each relate to different Zodiac signs, also they can relate to different professions. In short if you want a good explanation of tarot and how to learn the meanings behind them don't buy this one.

No - a reversed card does not have the opposite meaning to a card when in its upright position - any true reader knows this. So no, I don't think 'everyone' would agree with you on this point. Reading the subtle nuances of reversed cards isn't always easy for the experienced reader, so how can a beginner's book give any indepth explantions? Besides, there is no book written that will teach you everything about Tarot, only using them, (and of course having an affinity with them), will do that, but there are some books that will start you off and point you in the right direction. The Tarot Bible isn't bad in this respect.

I do not believe that a reversed card means the opposite either. I have been using tarot for quite a few years now, and I disagree with you on this point.
