Focusing on the Rider Waite packthe oldest and most widely used tarot deckthis manual also offers a thorough explanation of the court cards, which are often neglected in tarot guides. Practical steps to psychic cleansing and protection combine with real-life stories to emphasize the important points of the tarot as well as give them worldly, topical meanings. Complete with never-before-seen charts of the major and minor arcana, this guide book will strengthen any readers’ skill and increase their confidence in this timeless art.
Fenton-Smith, the author of many excellent books on clairvoyance and divination techniques, including the trifecta of Astrology Revealed, Palmistry Revealed, and The Tarot Revealed, continues his winning streak with this book. Its design complements the author's writing style, which is intelligent and straightforward. Fenton-Smith begins with a complete but uncomplicated introduction to the how's and why's of tarot. He then moves to the heart of the book-the interpretation of the 78 cards of the minor and major arcanas, covering their astrological and elemental correspondences, their general significance, and their meaning in terms of health, finances, and spiritual path in both the upright and reversed positions. Exercises for aiding memorization, developing interpretation, and refining questions for readings will benefit both beginners and experienced tarot readers. The color reference charts at the back, with brief interpretations for using the minor and major arcanas and court cards, basic maps for two different reading layouts, and information on the compatibility of suits, are a true bonus. Any library with a parapsychology shelf should have this on it.
