Tarot For Your Self, Second Edition: A Workbook for Personal Transformation by Mary K Greer

Originally published in 1984, this is a classic in its field. Not only is it the first book to promote reading the cards for your own insight, but it shows you exactly how to do so. It revolutionizes learning Tarot through a combined emphasis on self-teaching techniques and personal insight. Never before has a Tarot book so comprehensively linked the many areas of New Age thought. You will find journal writing, mythology, psychology, self-help, relationships, prosperity and right livelihood, crystals, channeling, astrology, numerology, poetry, art, and occult metaphysics—all explored and integrated with the Tarot. This revised edition features: — Expanded interpretations for the Minor Arcana — Reversed card meanings for all 78 cards — An entirely new history-based appendix on the latest research and discoveries — Information on your Shadow/Teacher cards — A new introduction — An updated bibliography Tarot for Your Self uses meditations, rituals, spreads, mandalas, visualizations, dialogues, charts, affirmations, and other activities to help you establish your own relationship with the cards. All the information is presented using the best in traditional knowledge and know-how. This powerful breakthrough process will turn all your readings into truly transformative experiences. Mary K. Greer is the author of five books on the Tarot, including Tarot Mirrors. A student of Tarot for 34 years, Mary is a Tarot Grandmaster and an Arch Priestess in the Fellowship of Isis. She is featured at Tarot conferences and symposia around the world, is active in Internet discussion groups, and directs Tools and Rites of Transformation (TAROT), an educational center for the study of divination, women's mysteries, and the transformative arts.

Tarot For Your Self: A Workbook For Personal Transformation by Mary K. Greer is designed for Tarot enthusiasts, both amateur and professional. Unfortunately, for this reader, the book was an immense disappointment, failing to live up to its promise to "turn all your readings into truly transformative experiences." Disjointed and poorly organized, I failed to relate to the exercises in the book. Many Tarot experts will offer their advice to not become a "slave to the cards." Unfortunately, it seems that Ms. Greer is offering quite the opposite perspective here. Through the exercises, one could assume she is suggesting we consult the Tarot on each and every life decision and experience from the mundane to the serious. I worry about a person who cannot make even a simple decision without the consultation of a deck of cards. Please do not misunderstand my sentiments. I am a firm believer in the power of Tarot, and on numerous occasions, I have been offered incredible assistance from higher realms by both reading for myself and also having others read for me. However, I believe that Tarot, like other divination tools, is meant to augment our true free will, not eliminate it and dictate our every move. Some of Greer's suggested exercises are based strictly on recommendations from her friends, those whose authority and expertise on the Tarot have not been verified. Especially frustrating are those exercises related to zodiac lessons such as finding your personality and soul cards, personal potential cards, and teacher cards. Greer does offer some interesting insight into the Tarot in between her meaningless exercises. For example, her suggestions for grounding energy, keeping a Tarot journal, and purifying cards are all very helpful and unique. In interpreting the suits, she offers detailed explanations of the meanings behind each suit, its relation to the elements, and its corresponding numerology system. Her in-depth analysis of the Celtic Cross spread offers new insight and meaning into that particular reading, and her foray into the chakras and her chakra spread are also insightful. However, while she does explain the purpose and layout of the chakra spread and offers an exercise for the reader to complete one of his or her own, she offers little explanation in how to understand and interpret the cards in the layout. The most frustrating section of Tarot For Your Self arrives midway, when Greer discusses Tarot permutations. This takes Tarot to the extreme. As if each of the 78 cards with its own upright and reversed meaning in a unique spread were not enough, she actually suggests moving the cards around to find even more meaning. Why bother using Tarot in the first place? Greer offers some fascinating methods to use crystals and Tarot together. This section could have been vastly expanded to offer additional insight and information where information is much-needed. Overall, my suggestion is to avoid Tarot For Your Self. Use Tarot to supplement your intuition not drive it.

This book has been around for a while because it is great. The exercises are built to teach you to intuitively grasp each card. The Tarot Numerology section can give hours of enlightenment. (PS: Mary Greer is about to publish a new book about Tarot Numerology!) I use the path working (visualizing the card and interacting with it) in every Tarot class I teach. This is also a book to be used, as it's subtitle suggests, as a tool for transformation! If you are wondering what books to get as a beginner, I recommend this and the beginner's book by Eileen Connolly. Together they make a great introduction for those that are not able or wanting to work with a teacher.
