wonderful new way of exploring the Tarot,
This review is from: The Transformational Truth of Tarot (Paperback)
as a tarot consultant of 25 years experience, I have been left disappointed with many recent books on the tarot. they can be repetitive and dry. This one is different and will have a place on my bookcase for a very long time.
Ms Crosara has presented us with a book which not only is jam packed full of card interpretations which are modern in outlook and relevant, but she has also led us deeper into the way the tarot can be used as a personal tool to unlock our subconscious. she writes well and is clear and observant.
Her own story weaves its way through the book making it like a learning journey with a friend. It is emotional and funny at times without losing the essence of the tarot's depth.
I enjoyed her way of making the court cards into 'families' and exploring them in a way that is easily accessible to those who sometimes find the court cards difficult to understand. the same with the essence of the suits. There are many other quirky ways of allowing access to some of the more difficult aspects of reading the tarot such as ethics.
It is just a very good book. Maybe not one for a total beginner but certainly for anyone with an interest or basic knowledge who wishes to delve deeper and certainly for 'old hands' looking for new and different 'takes' on a very ancient form of divination. I would like to read more from Ms Crosara.
