Excellent and invaluable reference but not for the novice
on 2 January 2016
This is a really heavy book (not weight but content-wise). From a Tarot reader point of view, I would not recommend it for astrology beginners. I have been reading tarot for years and continue to want to add depth and more understanding to my cards and readings using various methods. Astrology and Tarot combine well but I believe you really need some grounding in astrology to start to comprehend how to combine it with Tarot. I know only the 12 signs and some character traits. I knew nothing of ruling planets etc. Although this book does cover it, if you want to get the most out of it and not feel lost as I did initially, swat up on basic astrology first. Ideally be almost as good at astrology as you are at tarot. I guess the same can be said if your experience lies with astrology and you are new to Tarot, the learning curve would be as significant.
Basically this book is not for beginners, it really is for the true devotee. However, if you can put in the time and effort and see your way through it to the end, you will be a master because the content of this book is invaluable, well written and presented with examples and very extensive.
