Disclaimer: I am going to preface this review with the following statement.  I do not practice Wicca. I am not a priestess nor do I claim any religious affiliation.  I identify as an atheist witch and my review of any pagan/witchcraft books is presented from this point of view.



This book is put together in a very unique manner. I have reviewed many Tarot books and this by far has the most layouts of any other book I have reviewed to date.

 From the basic three card layout to the Abundance layout with 10 cards, this book offers something for everyone. It even has layouts dedicated to Hecate on pages 50 and 51 of the book.

The images in the book are very striking. Each page has a nice size image of the card and a brief explanation of the meaning, including the inverted/reversed meaning.

The book is separated in two sections with a spiral spine that allows the reader to open to a specific layout section and then thumb through the card section for review.  Each card section is marked with a colored tab to assist the reader in locating specific card types.

Using the sections together the reader can review the basic meaning of each card and use those to move through the reading.  The past lives reading, for example not only offers the card layout but also recommends questions to ask the client and directs the reader on how to delivery specific messages from the cards.

Over all I can see this being a great introduction to the Tarot.  However it is lacking a reference section, which I believe is a fundamental part of any book aiming to teach a topic.  The ability to come back and look up or reference information quickly is imperative.

I enjoyed reviewing this book and look forward to working with Liz and the folks at Fair Winds Press in the future.
