Editorial Reviews

James Rioux
"Shane Ward's <I>The Philosophy of the Tarot for the 21st Century</I> is a unique work. Its purpose is not to teach us how to read Tarot, but rather how to apply its universal philosophies to everyday life in a society plagued by change and crisis. For the most part, the author succeeds at this task. The philosophy behind each of 22 Major Arcana is illustrated with useful analogies and examples that allow even a novice to appreciate the wisdom that the Tarot brings.

Meet the Author

The answer to the question was in his head somewhere but before he could find it he needed to discover the question.

The quest to find the question started at age 16 and ended up some 24 years later with the book ‘The Philosophy of the Tarot For The 21st Century’. The revelation of the question – and the subsequent answer - resides in this book.

Shane continued writing with further books to add to his name, in association with Synergebooks, including the groundbreaking ‘Numerology: Making It Work For You’ and the popular self help book ‘Stop Smoking: Diary of a Quitter. Shane also had enough life to write about with his stunning autobiography (part 1) called ‘Walking The Path’ Shane is still in the process of living part 2.

Aside from books, Shane composes music, which also appears to lean toward the esoteric. The Magic Symphony and Planet Suite 3rd Millennium are two works currently available. His musical ‘The House of Frankenstein’ was composed in 2010. Shane continues to compose.

Shane’s indefatigable sense of humour is seen often in his writing but none more so than in his humorous poetry, showcased in http://www.authorsden.com/shaneward. Also included here are articles and short stories based on a wide range of subjects discussing subjects ranging from the serious to the amusing and even downright absurd.

Shane is married to his wife, Sharon, and is devoted to her and also to several computers. He has four children, five grandchildren and a mortgage. He says he will never be pigeon-holed for two reasons; firstly he is not a pigeon and secondly he does not like holes. He believes that doing nothing is rarely an appropriate option, that success arrives when failure stops paying attention and considers sleep is an inconvenience but apparently necessary to avoid looking like a zombie over the breakfast table.
