    Easy read- full of knowledge!

    I have always been fascinated with all things paranormal and occult. So when I was selected to review The True Nature of Tarot: Your Path to Personal Empowerment by Diane Wing, M.A., I was really excited. I've had readings done a few times and found it to be a very interesting experience, and I definitely wanted to learn more, especially how to do readings myself. I found this book to be perfect for a beginner such as myself. I had purchased a deck of tarot cards a long time prior to this review, but I really didn't like the cards. I decided once I received The True Nature of Tarot, to go on Ebay and pick a new deck. Once I found a deck I liked, Deviant Moon Tarot by Patrick Valenza, I was really excited to start trying out the spreads discussed in the book. I definitely felt more connected to this deck than the other one, It was very strange and Kind of hard to explain. I did several readings for myself and for friends and family. My favorite spread from the book is a free form spread using one card for each letter in the person's first and middle names. I was able to pull some amazing information from the cards that not only blew me away but also my friends and family too! I learned a lot from this book and look forward to increasing the strength of my readings.

    The True Nature of Tarot is written by Diane Wing who has been in the business of helping people reach their full potential for almost three decades. Diane is a tarot reader, Reiki master, teacher, personal transformation guide, and lifetime student of metaphysics. She also holds a masters degree in phychology and uses her tarot reading skills to help people achieve harmony in their lives. It has been a pleasure working with DianeWing, she is a wonderful person as well as author.
    Tarot card reading was in my life all throughout my childhood. I do not practice tarot reading but know it’s not evil. I have family and close friends that practice tarot reading. It’s actually a very interesting subject. The True Nature of Tarot is an easy to read and understand book. If you are just learning how to do tarot readings this would be a great book because of its easy to understand content.
    The True Nature of Tarot is helpful to those looking to start building their own tarot reading style. She guides you through the tarot reading process with a step-by-step through to the tarot reading process. The process is explained professionally yet with simplicity, which is perfect for beginners. She also fully explains the danger signs of as well as the full meaning of each card in the tarot deck.
    Since I grew up around tarot cards I am very open-minded to tarot readings and if used in a proper manner are not bad. My mother reads tarot cards, has for year. She has explained them to me but I have never understood much until I read Diane’s book. She has an expert way of explaining them, yet she keeps it simple and easy to understand.
    If you are interested in starting out or are a card reader already, there is much that can be learned from The True Nature of Tarot Reading.

    A positive spin on Tarot~!!

    The True Nature of Tarot: Your path to personal empowerment is tool to help your spiritual growth.

    Author, Diane Wing, has created a guide to those who have questions about Tarot. She provides insight into all aspects of Tarot showing the reader that it isn't warrant of the negative press that it has received throughout its history.

    Diane has been reading the Tarot for over twenty-five years as well as being a Reiki master, teacher and life coach with a Masters degree in psychology and many years in intuitive studies. Diane has spent many years fine tuning the art of Tarot and providing all she knows in this comprehensive 101 manual for the newcomer and a more advance reader for the experienced, it suits all who read it.

    This book will allow you to experience your own intuitive abilities by helping you to grow or you can just use this as a casual reader answering any questions you may have about the subject. There is also a section in which she discusses the purported "evil" aspects of Tarot, bringing many interesting thoughts to the fore.

    I loved how this book will take you through the steps of getting your cards read and the danger signs to look out for, as well as, there are tips for the card reader within the pages. I thought it was really well written and didn't leave me wondering what the author was talking about.

    I was equally thrilled to read about the individual tarot cards themselves. I have never seen anyone describe the cards such as Diane Wing has, they are more true to human nature than the stiff descriptions of other cards I have read!

    I enjoyed reading all the things that could impact a reading, I don't read tarot myself, but my youngest sister does and I was amazed to see that she did things mentioned in this book naturally. I always thought she had a remarkable gift and after reading The True Nature Of Tarot, I can see she truly does!

    The nature of tarot

    The True Nature of Tarot is just that, a personal account by the author with her own interpretations. I do feel Tarot is misunderstood and greatly misrepresented as 'satanic', often by those with 'tunnel-vision' feelings. I know I have received a few looks from strangers when I have my cards out. (I'm a big fan of The Halloween Tarot by Kipling West.). I did like how Diane compared the use of Tarot with that of a computer programmer as both can be used for good or bad. Most often in computer programming, the work is for the better and not considered a bad thing. (After all, how many of us rely on technology in our life?) Diane does offer a few things that I have not encountered in previous tarot books, such as the deck overview, a few good grounding techniques and her discussion on the energy field. However, the interpretations or card meanings lack any uniqueness from the summary insert or other books I have personally encountered. Granted what does make each card or reading unique is the person reading, their own interpretations as well as their own beliefs. I also feel the claim on her book "Your path to personal empowerment' is misleading as this book is more geared to providing tarot spreads for others, not a personal reading for the self. I was disappointed as I know of many, like myself; enjoy utilizing tarot for our own personal daily insight. As someone that understands personal boundaries and ethics, it is good that it is brought up, but I personally feel that it also comes down to common sense, courtesy and respect that a person does not just blurt things out or share information with another person. For the novice that would like to attempt tarot readings for friends and family, this would be a good start. For a one hundred and seventy-eight page book, only forty-four of those pages offer the information the author wishes to impart on the reader. However, I do not see anything that would make this book stand out from the others I have encountered and purchased.

    Bridget's REview

    I have always been fascinated with the occult and consider myself to be a "sensitive". My favorite part of the book was when I learned how to ground and center myself. I often feel like I'm all over the place and that can be very overwhelming. If you're interested in learning about Tarot, this is your book! Another great thing about this book is that it's printed on "green" paper!
