Synopsis:

Tarot Plain and Simple by Anthony Louis is the book you've been waiting for! As the title indicates, this book presents the Tarot in clear language that anyone can understand. If you've had trouble learning the Tarot, this book gives the meaning of each and every one of the 78 Tarot cards—both in simple terms and in-depth ones, both upright interpretations and those for when a card is drawn reversed. Illustrations are from the elegant and mystic Robin Wood Tarot.

This book leaves nothing out! It includes an overview of the history of the Tarot and suggests why this divinatory method works from a scientific point of view. It even includes several spreads and example readings. That way you can see exactly how the Tarot works, how the cards play off of each other and how to give a reading.

Turn to any page and see how you can learn meanings and interpretations. The Five of Cups shows a cloaked person with head down and three of five cups knocked over, spilling their contents. Upright the card means "mourning." But the key words and phrases give you so much more. It can also mean regret, sadness, loss of trust, an emotional letdown, betrayal in love, and much more. How can you tell which expression best fits the card? It depends upon where it falls in the spread and the cards that surround or lead up to it. This is explained in the clear but comprehensive section on Tarot card spreads, and is illustrated in the sample readings.

If you have been waiting for an ideal book to help you learn the Tarot, this is it. The longer you wait, the longer it will be before you can give effective Tarot readings. Get out that Tarot deck and get this book today!


Review:
There are hundreds of Tarot decks being published today. Llewellyn is very proud to be one of the world's leading publishers of Tarot decks. Tarot Plain and Simple by Anthony Louis helps you understand the meaning of the cards so you can give an excellent reading with any Tarot deck. Illustrated with the beautiful art of Robin Wood, you'll have no trouble relating the descriptions of the card meanings to any deck (although of course I hope you'll use one of ours!)
One of my favorite parts of this book is the sample readings. You can learn all the spreads and card meanings you like, but until you see how they are put together, you aren't giving a complete reading. This section will show you exactly how to do this. Traditionally, this is known as "synthesis." But remember, the title of this book is Tarot Plain and Simple. No need for fancy words here. Louis simply calls this section "Putting It All Together." Nothing could be more appropriate or easy to understand.
Don't mistake the notion of simplicity for being simplistic. This book avoids using confusing concepts or difficult language. It makes the unclear clear, the complex simple. It doesn't simplify, it clarifies. The result is that you will have a deeper and more intuitive understanding of the Tarot cards.
This book can really enhance your Tarot skills. Whether you are a beginning or advanced reader, you will find that studying this book will make your reading stronger and more accurate. That will help your readings become more intuitive. Try this book and add the zip your Tarot readings need. And if you're new to Tarot you'll be reading like a pro in no time!
