Top Customer Reviews
For each of the cards in the major arcana (the "picture" cards) cards are shown from four different sets and each is gone through meticulously in terms of symbols and how the meaning of the card is represented in the picture. Because it deals with four different cards it gives a very extensive understanding of what the card stands for and so it is a great help when you pick your own set and look for things in its pictures which communicate the meaning to you. For each of the cards in the minor arcana only one card is shown but you still get a really good idea of what each card means.
At the end of the book, eight different ways of laying up the cards are shown and explained through cases, which makes them very easily accessible.
All in all, cards from 12 of the most populars sets of cards are used and so you get a good idea of the diversity which can be found and how different cards suit different people.
All in all this really is a must for people who are beginning to look into tarot cards. I doubt if you'll find another book which is as extensive and easy to use as this one. Once you've gotten into it a bit it also works great as a place to look if you're in the middle of a reading and have just forgotten the meaning of a card or two.
