If you're looking to take your tarot readings beyond the Celtic Cross stage I cannot recommend this book enough. It takes the system of elemental dignities described in the Golden Dawn Book T and makes it fly. Everything is spelled out with examples from the initial cut of the cards down to a system of 'unaspected cards' (I must admit I have yet to get my head round this last section). The beauty of this system is that you can just deal out 3 cards and get an answer far more nuanced than a 10 card spread in 'traditional' style, or you can go the whole hog and read all 78 cards in both directions!Or anything in between. The book is also stuffed full of the authors musings on magic, shamanism and various spirits. The only reason I don't give a full five stars is that if anything he has put too much in the book and at times one is slightly overwhelmed.
