I've been reading tarot for years and am always up for looking at new books on the subject. However, while many are lacking this books is not! The author takes you through the cards, provides their meaning both traditional and modern. While I prefer the Rider Waite,another deck is used as well. After providing the basics, the author takes it to the next level and provides insight and tools to become a reader. While I like this last part, it takes time and commitment to become a reader. So with that in mind, get started and practice, practice, practice!

This book is a great starting point that can help you go beyond just learning what tarot is!

Ooh I love Tarot! I love pulling the cards, the unique artistry of each deck, reading and of course, tarot books. ✨🔮❤️ This book is dedicated to all those that choose to discover the magical mysteries of tarot, and I’m here for it! I always learn something new and the depth of Leanna and Beleta’s experience and knowledge is wildly impressive. This book covers all the bases, and checks all the boxes you’d want on tarot, including the importance of establishing a connection with the cards at the onset — plus I love the Moon Blessing. I also love the herb and crystal correspondences. I’ll be reaching for this book again and again, because unlike oils and crystals the tarot card meanings don’t stick in my mind unaided. However, the memorize prompts, in time might change that! 🙏🖤 So grateful for these teachings, thank you, thank you, thank you.
