1-2-3 Tarot - Answers In An Instant by Donald Tyson

1-2-3 Tarot - Answers In An Instant by Donald Tyson

Discover the easiest way to learn Tarot. With the simple system outlined in this book, you can start reading the cards immediately—even if you’ve never touched a Tarot deck before!

Most introductory Tarot books contain long lists of keywords for each of the seventy-eight cards in a deck. The key to this unique system is the Tarot sentence. A card’s complex significance boils down to three elements: identity, action, and direction. These elements are matched with a noun, verb, and adverb to form a simple sentence and give you the succinct meaning for any given card.

You’ll learn how to interpret the collective meanings of three-card sets within a variety of spreads designed to answer any question. A quick-reference table that includes reversed meanings saves you the trouble of flipping through the book while you’re in the middle of a reading. Flexible, fast, and fun, this foolproof method can be applied to any Tarot deck.

About The Author

Donald Tyson is a Canadian from Halifax, Nova Scotia. Early in life he was drawn to science by an intense fascination with astronomy, building a telescope by hand when he was eight. He began university seeking a science degree, but became disillusioned with the aridity and futility of a mechanistic view of the universe and shifted his major to English. After graduating with honors he has pursued a writing career.

Now he devotes his life to the attainment of a complete gnosis of the art of magic in theory and practice. His purpose is to formulate an accessible system of personal training composed of East and West, past and present, that will help the individual discover the reason for one's existence and a way to fulfill it.

Tarot Awareness - Exploring the Spiritual Path by Stephen Sterling

Tarot Awareness - Exploring the Spiritual Path by Stephen Sterling

Have you ever looked at the mysterious symbols on the Tarot cards and wondered what they meant? Or perhaps you have read the Tarot for others for many years but still don't understand how to use them for meditation and spiritual development. Or perhaps you use the intense imagery of the Tarot for meditation, but don't think it is "appropriate" to use this mystical tool for readings.

Well, now you can learn the meaning of the symbols for spiritual development and for giving great readings in Stephen Walter Sterling's Tarot Awareness.

The Tarot is composed of two major sections, the illustrated cards that form the Major Arcana and the cards of the Minor Arcana which are like a deck of playing cards with an extra court card for each suit. Each card has a meaning for a reading. The meanings of the cards are given in the text.

The Major Arcana cards also are about the spiritual development of your consciousness. As you go through the cards, from zero to twenty-one, you follow the progression of yours spirituality. The fifty-six cards of the Minor Arcana are associated with your development from the spiritual to the physical. In fact, they deal with the four levels of progression to manifestation, the spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical.

Put this all together, and for the first time you have a book which integrates spiritual and practical, meditative, and divinatory.

One of the great things about the Tarot is that it's symbolic. Since the unconscious works through symbols, it speaks to you. Just working with the Tarot helps you to evolve, especially when you understand the Tarot's spiritual truths. In order to work with the cards the book shares five different readings you can do. As an added bonus, the book also deals with the difficult subject of "proximity," relating the cards in a spread to each other as opposed to just their positions in the spread. This can enhance your readings on your quest for spirituality.

About The Author

Stephen Walter Sterling (California) received a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from San Francisco State University. He has applied this academic training in his work as a Certified Hypnotherapist. Teaching and providing spiritual counseling form the core of his professional activities, but he has also had over 20 years of practice in reading the Tarot for clients. Currently, Sterling teaches Metaphysics and Tarot at the Mandala Labyrinth Center in Carmichael, California, as well as regularly giving workshops and lectures on Tarot and its use in psychological well-being.

Drawing on his years of study of Christian, Jewish, and Eastern mysticism, as well as psychology and astrology, Sterling wrote Tarot Awareness: Exploring the Spiritual Path. He felt there was a need for a textbook that both teachers and students could use to facilitate classes and a tool that provides a practical guide for enhancing spiritual awareness, self-help and meditation.
