4.0 out of 5 stars a strong and easy to follow introduction to the tarot., 11 Jan. 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Complete Idiot's Guide To Tarot: Expert Instruction on Revealing Answers to Your Every Question or Purpose (Complete idiot's guides) (Paperback)
as a newcomer to the tarot this is the first book i have bought in order to learn the skill and so far i must say that it has been easy to follow and understand. it starts of by giving you an introduction to what tarot is all about and then goes on to encourage you to use your own intuition as to what you see in the cards before actually giving you the supposed actual meanings and the book contains many exercises in order to help you do this.
the meanings behind the cards given are well writen and consicse and understandable, the only crib i have here is that it could have gone on to explain some of the tricker cards in more detail.
the book also gives you a number of introductions to traditional tarot spreads like the celtic cross spread and the three card spread. again the only crib here is that the book could have gone in to more detail on how to what the cards mean in particular positions rather than just give you examples to follow.
The book contains interesting chapters on the link between numerology and astrology and useful tips on how to conduct readings and what deck to use. the book is also i felt formatted like a textbook which i found useful as it aids learning better.
This book works in conjunction with the reider waite tarot deck so if your going to use this book make sure you have this deck.
overall i felt that this book provided a good foundation to understanding the basic principles behind tarot and is excellent for any beginner, but i feel that i will have to read further books in order to aid my understanding of the cards further.
