Summer Solstice Reading | Spread to Practice

Happy belated Solstice! Happy Winter solstice to those in the southern hemispheres and happy Summer solstice to those of us in the northern hemisphere. This week’s Media Review, during which I reviewed Queering the Tarot by Cassandra Snow, didn’t have any spreads included in…

Media Review: Queering the Tarot by Cassandra Snow (book)

I have been eagerly awaiting my copy of Queering the Tarot for ages. Things take a little bit longer to come out in the UK if it’s an American print, so it just heightens the anticipation. And this book did not disappoint. I cannot…

Tarot Elements: Spread to Practice

This week’s Media Review was Tarot Elements: Five Readings to Reset Your Life by Melissa Cynova. The book outlines five different readings (along with a few bonus spreads) to work through the blocks in each area of your life, inspired by the elements of…

Media Review: Tarot Elements by Melissa Cynova (book)

After being so pleased with Kitchen Table Tarot, I went out and bought Melissa Cynova’s most recent book, Tarot Elements: Five Readings to Set Your Life. I initially heard about this book from a Tarot Bytes podcast episode I was listening to. The implication…

Neo Tarot’s Self-Care Pyramid Tarot Spread | Spread to Practice

This week’s Media review was a double-whammy of book and Tarot deck with the Neo Tarot by Jerico Mandybur. This book/deck combo focusses on using the cards for self-care and healing rather than predictive reading practices. One of the ways of doing this is…

Media Review: Secrets of the Celtic Cross by Marcus Katz & Tali Goodwin (e-Book)

I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how I wanted to write about this book. I picked up Secrets of the Celtic Cross: The Secret Hisotry of the World’s Most Popular Tarot Spread Featuring  New Tarot Reading Methods out of sheer…

Media Review: Kitchen Table Tarot by Melissa Cyvona (book)

Kitchen Table Tarot by Melissa Cynova is as refreshing as a fresh glass of water, no matter how many other glasses you’ve already had.

Media Review: Have Tarot Will Party by Jenna Matlin (ebook)

This self-published 2019 book outlines everything that a Tarot Reader wanting to break into the business of reading at events would need to know, including contracts, Health and Safety, ‘Training the Host,’ etc.

Media Review: Tarot for Profit by Peter J Morris (eBook)

I thought this was a really well-written and useful book. Again, the heart of Tarot was at the heart of the book, which I think is so important. The book serves as a fantastic reminder to readers that even though the Tarot can be a means of income, it’s a tool for spiritual development and as a reader you have a gift to help others through their own development. This is its purpose first and foremost.

Media Review: Tarot Talks to the Woman Within by Cassandra Eason (Book)

However, once I got past the introduction, I began to enjoy the book. This books is addressed to people looking to dissolve masculine boundaries in the tarot. While I think that a female audience was intended, I do think that there are some great learning opportunities for everyone.

Media Review: Tarot Psychology by Robert Wang (Book)

I was thrilled to get my hands on the Jungian Tarot series by Robert Wang, though for the purposes of this post, I’m only going to be reviewing the first book, Tarot Psychology (Marcus Aurelius Press, Canada; 1988). The reason? The first book took a…

Media Review: Tarot Inspired Life by Jaymi Elford (e-Book)

While normally I breeze through books fairly quickly, but with this one I really took my time. There are plenty of exercises through the whole book, and I wanted to make sure I took part in whatever I could to ensure that I did the book justice.

Emerald Lotus – Tarot Spread – Spiritual Bypassing (Shared from WordPress)

I found a tarot spread by Emerald Lotus that I thought was quite important. It is on the idea of spiritual bypassing, which is a term I hadn’t come across until this very post. It’s the idea that becuase one considers themselves spiritually enlightened,…

Media Review: Sightsee the Tarot by Benebell Wen (Youtube Playlist)

The first video starts with the Nine-Card Open Face Spread” which provides an idea of the archetypes of Jung. I’m generally the kind of person who believes that in order for a spread to be effective, then the reader must know the spread before hand. Otherwise, how can the psyche/surrounding energies help to organize the cards so they make sense in the layout?The first video starts with the Nine-Card Open Face Spread” which provides an idea of the archetypes of Jung.

New Deck: Trippin’ Waite Tarot

I really enjoy some of the political messaging that came from the 60’s and 70’s that are in the deck, as I think a lot of them are still warranted today. It’s fun but still brings a little bit of a serious tone to it, if that’s what you’re after. 

Media Review: Mapping the Hero’s Journey with Tarot by Arwen Lynch (e-book)

As I read through this, I put together a completely organic story based on the methods provided in this book. I didn’t have a character, I didn’t have a plot. I just laid the cards out and created an outline to something that I’m excited to start writing.

New Deck: Aquarian Tarot In a Tin

The art style I just absolutely adore. It is the epitome of the 70’s if you ask me. It reminds me of movies like The Hobbit (1977), and old t.v. show introductions like the Electric Company  and Schoolhouse Rock. The art style isn’t exactly any of those, yet there is definitely an aspect of the time that is present in all of these mentioned.
