Read an Excerpt

Perhaps the most difficult part of any divination system is learning how to put all of the information together in a sensible whole. Otherwise, readings become jagged and sometimes even inconsistent. In astrology, the art of combining all of the information is known as "synthesis." That's probably a good name for the same process in the Tarot. And one of the best books to train you in this technique is How to Use Tarot Spreads by Sylvia Abraham.

Sure, you'll learn the meaning of each card. You'll also learn the meaning of each position where you will lay out the cards in the 37 spreads explained in this book. Because there are so many spreads for such a wide variety of purposes, you'll discover that you can give very specific readings. Sylvia even shows how to use the Tarot for determining time periods, one of the most difficult parts of Tarot divination.

Each spread includes its use in a sample reading. In this way you'll learn how to synthesize all of the information of the cards and the spread into a unique, coherent whole. By studying how this is done you will develop the skill yourself. This is one of the signs of a true, professional Tarot reader, even if you are only going to do readings for your friends and family.

Some debunkers claim that divinations can apply to anyone. Well, that's not true when you use the spreads given in this book. You'll find specific spreads giving specific answers about lost objects, personal relationships, business, travel and much more. The readings you give will clearly and explicitly be just for the person asking the question. With the information given in this book, and a bit of practice, you're going to find that your ability as a Tarot reader will go farther than you ever thought possible.

    Book makes you work

    I bought this book in the hopes of finding an easy (beginner) way to get familiar with the cards. The card descriptions are in no order and I found myself jumping all over the book to try to find one card after another. In most books the cards are listed from the beginning to end. This book gave me a headache and I finally bought a different one. I really would not reccommend it for beginnners or anyone advanced.
