Tarot Books

I heart Melissa Cynova. I really do. She’s good people. I interviewed her for my Talkin’ Tarot with series back in in 2011. (That long ago? OMG!) She’s come a long way since then. In fact, she’s now a published author! Melissa just released her fab new book, Kitchen Table Tarot – a straight-talkin’ no b.s. […]

Tarot For One with Courtney Weber

by Theresa Reed on November 16, 2016

One of the questions I hear all the time from my students is this: “can you read tarot for yourself?” I say yes to that. After all, who knows you better than yourself? But there are problems that can arise when you read your own cards.  The biggest issue: getting out of your own way […]

The Deck and Book Nook – Tarot Dynamics Unleashed

by Theresa Reed on June 17, 2012

If you are a fan of Anna Burroughs Cooks first book, Tarot Dynamics (Kima Global Publishers: ISBN978-1-920533-07-6), you will surely want to get a copy of her newest work, Tarot Dynamics Unleashed (Kima Publishing ISBN: 978-1920533076).   (You can read my review of the original Tarot Dynamics here.) This new offering is a repeat of […]

I love my digital world – and since I’ve made a vow to declutter my massive book collection, it’s been so handy to switch to a digital format.  (Don’t get me wrong – I still love the smell and feel of a book but a gal only has so much room in her house before […]

The Deck and Book Nook – Mary El Tarot

by Theresa Reed on May 6, 2012

I was excited to get my hands on a copy of the long awaited Mary-El Tarot (Schiffer ISBN:  9780764340611) by artist Marie White.  I had seen some of the pictures and so I knew it was going to be a stunner. And oh, what a beauty indeed!  First of all, the packaging is exquisite – a […]

The Deck and Book Nook – Tea Leaf Fortune Cards

by Theresa Reed on March 4, 2012

I’m a big time tea drinker yet I’ve never been able to master the art of tea leaf reading.  When I attempted to gaze into the teacup, I didn’t see images.  I saw tea leaves.  Perhaps I don’t have the imagination or vision for this type of divination but now thanks to the Tea Leaf […]

The Deck and Book Nook – Tarot For Magical Times

by Theresa Reed on February 4, 2012

  I’ll admit this: I’m rarely concerned with how astrology aspects affect the world.  Usually when I look at the transits, I’m only concerned with what it means for me.  I know it’s a rather self absorbed approach but I think a lot of astrology buffs tend to do the same thing.  However, when Pluto […]

The Deck and Book Nook – Tarot, Birth Cards, and You

by Theresa Reed on January 1, 2012

  “Tarot, Birth Cards and You” by Bonnie Cehovet (Schiffer Publishing 978-0764339028) is a fantastic addition to any tarot library.  This slim book is brimming with useful information including rituals, affirmations and questions that invoke deep personal inquiry. Mary Greer has already written a book on birth cards entitled “Who Are You In the Tarot” […]

The Deck and Book Nook – Tarosophy

by Theresa Reed on December 12, 2011

This is not your average tarot book. And it certainly is no “Tarot for Dummies”. In fact, I am going to start off by saying that this book took me a lot longer to get through than most tarot books that I own.  I’m a fast reader but this one demanded that I slow down […]

The Deck and Book Nook – The Reluctant Tarot Reader

by Theresa Reed on November 12, 2011

  I love reading about the experiences of my fellow tarot readers.  It’s interesting to learn how others deal with this work as well as how they found their way into the industry.  So I was delighted when Raven Mardirosian gave me a copy of her latest ebook, “The Reluctant Tarot Reader”. Part autobiography and […]
