Tarot For Your Self A Workbook For Personal Transformation

Tarot For Your Self A Workbook For Personal Transformation Cover

Book: Tarot For Your Self A Workbook For Personal Transformation by Mary Greer

It is not a book that you read and think about, or a book that lists keywords for each card, it is a workbook that requires your attention. It is a tarot journal and an experience through which you learn valuable tarot lessons. Greer offers meditations, rituals, visualizations and dialogues. She introduces you to the court cards in such a good way, that you feel as though you would recognize them on the street, and yet, you are also able to recognize them in yourself too! She also offers mandalas, charts, astrology, numerolgy and affirmations, which are all designed to bring you closer to the tarot, to develop a better Understanding and to allow you to "experience yourself in new and ever expanding ways" through the tarot.

Originally published in 1984, this classic is the first book to explore and promote the concept of reading the cards for personal insight-for yourself-with detailed Instructions how to do so. The exercises can be enjoyed by an individual or shared with others, making it a popular text for classes and study groups. It uses meditations, rituals, spreads, mandalas, visualizations, dialogues, charts, affirmations, and other activities to help you establish your own Relationship with the cards. It offers the best in traditional knowledge and know-how. Learn the many variations of three card spreads and ways of moving around the cards in the Celtic Cross Spread to get far more information than you thought possible. Use Mary Greer's powerful "breakthrough process" with all your readings to turn them into truly transformative experiences.

TAROT FOR YOUR SELF is also an excellent reference book having a section dedicated to extensive meanings of each card and questions you need to ask yourself on pulling each card. It also offers insight on various spreads... from a one card reading, to the Celtic Cross, chakra spread and also the "Tree of Life" spread. Again, Greer introduces the spreads in such a way that it feels as though she is taking you by the hand and walking through each step. Its great... you just can't make a mistake no matter how complex the reading is!

Of course, TAROT FOR YOUR SELF can be found on most prominent tarot reader's bookshelves, as it is classified by many as an invaluable tool in your tarot journey and a "must have" for anyone interested in tarot. Dollar for dollar, it is excellent value. However the book has 253 good quality letter-sized pages.

Designed as a workbook "Tarot for Yourself" encourages you to expand your horizons with the method you use for reading. I recommend this book often and suggest people take a year to read, practice and grow while working through the exercises. Ms. Greer encourages you to discover your particular way of interpreting cards. "Tarot for Yourself" provides over a dozen spreads to spur your creativity and give you the information and confidence to create your own spreads.

The greatest message Ms. Greer imparts is `trust yourself.' Certainly TAROT FOR YOU SELF is a highly recommended book, and a valuable aid in learning and mastering the tarot.
