There are hundreds of Tarot decks being published today. Llewellyn is very proud to be one of the world's leading publishers of Tarot decks. Tarot Plain and Simple by Anthony Louis helps you understand the meaning of the cards so you can give an excellent reading with any Tarot deck. Illustrated with the beautiful art of Robin Wood, you'll have no trouble relating the descriptions of the card meanings to any deck (although of course I hope you'll use one of ours!)
One of my favorite parts of this book is the sample readings. You can learn all the spreads and card meanings you like, but until you see how they are put together, you aren't giving a complete reading. This section will show you exactly how to do this. Traditionally, this is known as "synthesis." But remember, the title of this book is Tarot Plain and Simple. No need for fancy words here. Louis simply calls this section "Putting It All Together." Nothing could be more appropriate or easy to understand.
Don't mistake the notion of simplicity for being simplistic. This book avoids using confusing concepts or difficult language. It makes the unclear clear, the complex simple. It doesn't simplify, it clarifies. The result is that you will have a deeper and more intuitive understanding of the Tarot cards.
This book can really enhance your Tarot skills. Whether you are a beginning or advanced reader, you will find that studying this book will make your reading stronger and more accurate. That will help your readings become more intuitive. Try this book and add the zip your Tarot readings need. And if you're new to Tarot you'll be reading like a pro in no time!

Although I wasn't sure what the kit and packaging would look like (sometimes a lot gets lost... read this article
