Amazon.com now has my new Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Tarot in stock! (Finally!)
I’m very excited about this book, for a lot of reasons. First, the ABG to Tarot honors both the practical and the mystical approaches to Tarot — so you can choose the path that serves your purposes best.
Second, I worked hard to make the ABG to Tarot really comprehensive. After exploring the benefits of working with Tarot, you’ll find chapters that reveal:
– a (very!) brief history of the deck
– tips on finding the perfect deck for you
– a simple visual system for reading any card
– tricks used by con artists posing as Tarot readers
– tips for finding legitimate Tarot readers
and more. And in addition to my visual system for reading the cards, I’ve included a card-by-card guide to the entire deck. It’s packed with great information, including:
– four beautiful images (from the traditional Universal Tarots, the exquisite Gilded Tarot, the practical Bright Idea Deck, and the authentic Tarot de Marseilles) for each card
– astrological, numerological, mythical, alphabetical, and fictional correspondences for each card
– applications of each card’s meanings to questions about work, relationships, spirituality, personal growth, and fortunetelling
– detailed insights into the symbols found on every card, and
– exploration questions to help you discover what a card means to you!
The folks at Que Books went out of their way to make this book really attractive, fun, and easy to use. This past weekend, during my visit to Seattle, one “absolute beginner” frustrated with other books said, “Finally! A book on Tarot that’s organized the way I think!” With the book’s help, she and her husband were reading cards in minutes!
If you’re interested in a readable, comprehensive guide to Tarot, I hope you’ll give The Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Tarot a try!
Update: Wow! Overnight, the Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Tarot jumped from it’s pre-sale ranking of #616,000 to #14,000 on Amazon.com’s sales listings … and it’s climbing higher! Thanks, folks! I really appreciate your support!
