A thoughtful, useful reference book and workbook for readers who know the basics and are ready to really up the ante with their fluency.
One of my most frequently used decks. Friendly and accessible to users and clients.
This was one of my own early study books. The card meditations are good, using a story telling approach to help you memorise and internalise the archetypes of the Majors and court cards in particular. Learning Tarot is rather like uploading a programme, to start with. Once uploaded, experience will start to customise your interpretations.
An accessible and greatly respected modern Tarot classic. 78 cards make a Tarot deck, each with its own micro-library of ideas and cultural, archetypal references.
A beautifully presented and produced pocket- sized introduction to the Tarot, published by Dorling Kindersley. It covers a wide territory; the history of Tarot, its uses, card meanings, themes running through the Tarot and card layouts or spreads. Sample readings are included to demonstrate spreads.
An everyday guide to using Tarot cards with an emphasis on the work place: Tarot for problem solving, decision making and career planning. A completely accessible read for non-tarot readers, but you might want a deck of your own so you can join in and try a few things for yourself. It won’t appeal to occultists perhaps. I hate the louche cover design, but it’s esoterically un-snobbish and it offers a lively crash course in practical everyday usage, so it gets my vote.
A rather beautiful, sombre look at using the Tarot for facing, understanding and getting a use-able handle on coping with or surmounting the difficult feelings everyone experiences from time to time. Suitable for self-help, and for thoughts on reading for others currently experiencing major emotional difficulty or managing chronic health difficulties.
This book, while aimed at the US market and therefore written in cognisance of US laws and licences regarding professional tarot reading, is full of great common sense help if you’re starting out professionally. It can be by definition, such a solitary pursuit, a few friendly pointers can make all the difference in minimising mistakes at the outset. It has useful glossaries at the back.
A quirky, accessible, characterful book, full of anecdote and diagram illustration, and introducing the principles and applications of pendulum divination or radiesthesia.
Packed with interesting health and medical facts, a valuable resource for anyone interested in discovering more about the potential health research applications of pendulum divination, tapping your own intuition.
TC Lethbridge who died in 1971, was a Cambridge trained archaeologist who used dowsing or as it’s also commonly called, water-witching, using divining rods on digs. He became increasingly interested in divining with pendulums, exploring paranormal phenomena, which he approached with a mix of scientific discipline and logic, and extraordinary, unprejudiced perception.
