Format: Paperback
This book is the book I have been needing to add to my collection. It has 36 or so different spreads for a multitude of divinations and covers many different areas and questions other books do not. It however does not give an in-depth "how to" do a reading or detailed descriptions/meanings of the cards, only a very brief introduction. Based on that, I have to say it is not for beginners. It is best when one has a decent knowledge and familarity with the cards and basic layouts such as the traditional celtic cross. It also gives sample readings of each layout, but I have to say that I do not really look at those, they are just a guideline to how the cards fit that particular spread I suppose, but I like to make my own interpretations and not be influenced by another's style or interpretation. Other than that, it's a good addition to the more experienced reader's library, mine is quite dog-eared!

As with 'How to Read the Tarot' by the same author, I found the spread practicing to be clear and concise. I actually laid out the spreads and followed the definitions. By doing that I was able to visualize the definitions. Now when I do spreads for people the symbols race to the front of my mind versus trying to remember the defined words. This book is very worth it at this price.

This is the kind of Tarot book i like.

There are very short descriptions of the card meanings obviously meant as a reference, anyone reading the tarot should be able to make their own interpretations of the cards!

This book is full of spreads and explains how to choose the correct one! There isn't a question that can't be answered using these spreads.

I'd highly recommend it for beginners and experienced readers

Sylvia Abraham is an American woman who lives in California where she owns and runs a metaphysical books and supplies shop. She has been reading and teaching others to read the Tarot for over twenty years. Abraham's stated intention in writing this book is abundantly clear in its title, with the vast majority of the book devoted to spreads and how to use them. In her introductory chapter the author gives "thumb-nail sketches" (p.1) of the upright and reversed interpretations of each card, including a keyword or phrase for each major card, e.g. the High Priestess - "I Know" (p.5), and the Devil - "Materialism and Deception" (p.17). Her approach to the Minor Arcana is most innovative in that she applies the keywords of the Major cards to the Minor ones, e.g. "......the four fours have the same Keywords as the Emperor: I realize........Four of Wands Upright:- I realize my work and social activities" (p.8); "the four nines have the same keywords as the Hermit - Wisdom Through Experience..........Nine of Pentacles Reversed:- Experiences have not brought wisdom or understanding......." (p.13-14). The rest of the book is broken down into nine chapters, each one giving spreads for particular areas of life, e.g. `Love and Romance', `High Finances', Spiritual Seekers', and `Just For Fun'. For each area there are several different spreads, e.g. `High Finance - Business Spread, Lawsuit Spread, Work Spread' et al., and for most of the spreads there are several real-life sample readings which demonstrate very well the application of "thumb-nail sketches......of the meanings of each card" (p.1) in a real reading. Throughout the book there is an interesting mix of predictive and exploratory spreads, some more serious and some more frivolous.Read more ›
