Book of Interest—Tarot Plain & Simple

Nov 09 2017 Published by under Anna's Books of Interest, Red wheel/Weiser

There is a new genre of metaphysical practitioners/instructors emerging from the chaos of the popularization of all things occult. They make it clear that they know and understand the traditional foundations of the craft they practice, but they have claimed that knowledge and turned it into wisdom that speaks to today’s practitioners. Leanna Greenaway is a standout in this new group.

The book includes a brief recap of traditional interpretations of each card, but then Greenaway goes on to offer a detailed modern interpretation which makes the card applicable to today’s challenges and situations. I was amazed at how clearly and concisely she stated each card’s implications and insight in ways that were relevant to the real world.

She relied on the time-tested work of A.E. Waite and Pamela Coleman Smith to illustrate her book. (The Rider-Waite deck is still the deck which I personally believe contains the most helpful symbolism for those whose interest in the occult extends beyond mere parlor tricks.)

I highly recommend this book to well-seasoned card readers as well as newcomers to the craft. SHOP FOR THE BOOK
