Your Second Tarot Book

Okay, you've read a bit about the Tarot, and maybe you've followed the book or booklet that came with your deck. You can "sort of" give a reading with your deck and maybe use it for a little bit more, such as meditation. The Tarot fascinates you, but you're stuck with a question: "Where do I go from here?" The answer is in Ly de Angeles' revolutionary book, Tarot Theory & Practice.

In this groundbreaking work, Ly shares original ideas on the nature of prophecy and using the Tarot to predict the future. Along the way she explores some of the latest concepts of science, free will, and fate. She also proposes a startling and bold new theory: the Tarot doesn't reflect what is going on in your past and present, it actually impacts your everyday reality—and your future!

Her theories are well thought-out and are bound to cause debate and discussion. She also introduces the concept that the Tarot is the God of Time, basing this on quantum physics and current "Big Bang" theories of the creation of the universe. Furthermore,  the book links these ideas to the Tree of Life, astrology, and more. Tarot Theory & Practice may be the most amazing Tarot book of this decade—and the next one, too! It's certainly the one that will be talked about more than any other book on the Tarot.

Practical Elements at Work
As the title indicates, this is not just a philosophical text; it is vibrant, lively, and filled with practical information that can help any Tarot reader. It includes numerous examples, techniques, tips, and tricks. Simply put, this book is vital for anyone who is—or who wants to become—a Tarot reader at a professional level of expertise. It includes:

· The nature of the Tarot: what it is and what it isn’t
· Card meanings and sample spreads
· How to prepare to give a reading
· Maintaining confidentiality
· The Tarot as a teacher
· How to communicate bad news
· The importance of telling the truth
· Contacting and consulting with your clients
· Safety dos and don'ts
· Avoiding burnout

Also included is a discussion of multiple card meanings, a bibliography, internet references, and more.

The Must-Have Book for Tarot Readers
Whether you want to read for yourself, give readings for friends, or become a professional, this book covers all the bases. It is sprinkled with exercises and personal case histories that illuminate the text, helping you to fully grasp all of the information. Illustrated with cards from the magnificent Llewellyn Tarot, it includes new insight into the meaning of each card. The Tarot spreads can help you on topics ranging from general events and warnings to the journey of the soul, as well as just about any other question or topic you may have.

Popular author Ly de Angeles has been interpreting Tarot for thirty years and teaching it for twenty. The techniques she presents here were first taught to her as part of an oral tradition. It is presented in this book in twelve units that you can study as fast or as slow as you like, although it's intended for a year of study.

When Tarot becomes aware of you and you change in accordance with its nature—it's never the other way around—you literally become Tarot. This process begins with the realization that nothing is separate. Everything is a unique expression of the Whole that is life, the universe, and everything. This realization is the ultimate liberation. You can experience it with a simple deck of Tarot cards and Tarot Theory & Practice.

I have been writing books for Llewellyn since my first one (Circle, Coven & Grove) came out in 2007; my tenth (A Year and a Day of Everyday Witchcraft) will be out in October 2017. That's a lot of books! And I've switched my primary focus to writing novels—although they're still mostly about witches, of course—so I had sadly... read this article
