Dirty & Divine takes us on an adventure through the magical world of tarot cards. Divination comes from the Latin verb ‘divinare’ and literally means ‘being inspired by a god’. You could say that tarot is one means of putting images and words to the voices of Divine beings that offer a higher perspective on human life on Earth! As always Grist is brave, funny and very honest! You are in very good hands on this journey into mystery and will discover the down-to-earth everyday benefits of tarot cards.

For anyone investing time, energy and passion in the journey through the tarot this is a wonderful book with a no nonsense and well grounded attitude. I love the way Alice has so eloquently woven the tapestry of her life into the tarot to assist the reader in understanding how life situations blend with each of the tarot cards. For the beginner, this is a wonderful way of retaining the information relating to the card meanings, making it easy for them to revert back to the life situation for reference and understanding. The book is split into manageable, easy to understand sections from the intuitive sense of the card to Alice’s own journey, harnessing their power and finally the Dirty & Divine Spell-words to reinforce their meaning. I love this book because it has such a different and refreshing approach to learning the tarot.

Dirty & Divine asks you to leave everything you know about tarot at the door, kick off your heels and pour yourself a cocktail. Forget fortune telling and learning key words, this is a real and raw look into the tarot, how it works and how it can help us understand modern life. Alice shares her own story with honesty, looking at both the shadow (‘dirty’) and light (‘divine’) sides of herself and encourages us to do the same for real transformation and even more importantly, understanding of the self. Reading Dirty & Divine was like a night in with your incredibly clever and cool best mate, getting deep and meaningful over a deck of cards and reclaiming the Goddess within, both sides of her, dirty and divine.

Alice has been my go-to woman for tarot readings for years now, because her truth, knowledge + wisdom are the REAL DEAL. In reading this book, and what Alice shares within the dirty + divine pages of it, you will have direct access to all that she knows (FYI: that's a lot), but what I find REALLY juicy about it, is that you'll experience how to use the cards + the stories, metaphors, signs + symbols they hold as a tool to help you remember your power. The fierce self-love, the courageous + wild truth of who you were before you forgot. Let Alice, the high priestess of the tarot, take you on a journey of remembrance + reverence. The dirty + the divine.
