Tarot For One: The Art of Reading for Yourself

March 14th, 2017 § Comments Off on Tarot For One: The Art of Reading for Yourself § permalink

Tarot For One took me longer to read than I expected, but not because it’s difficult, or heavy, or in any way hard to read. In fact, it’s just the opposite, Courtney Weber has written an extremely accessible Tarot guide that’s a true pleasure to read.

It took me so long to get through because instead of just breezing through a collection of card definitions, Tarot history, and sample spreads (all of which are included in the book and are very well written), I actually worked through every exercise while using a new deck I wasn’t at all familiar with.

The time taken was well worth it, as not only did I really get to know my new deck, but I also deepened my own relationship with Tarot and how I use it to read for myself.

What’s especially wonderful about Tarot For One is how it helps you to develop your own personal connection to the cards. Working through the exercises shows you how you can build a language using the images on your cards that reflects your own life, something memorizing other peoples’ definitions can never do.

And the process of creating that personal language is super fun!! I was having insights left, right, and center the whole way through the book. Even an exercise asking readers about their last meal was unexpectedly interesting and enjoyable.

If you decide to get this book (which I recommend), I strongly suggest you do all the exercises, and most definitely use your Tarot journal. I started a new one just for the book and I’ve already filled more than 160 pages!

Tarot For One: The Art of Reading for Yourself is a book I think both new and seasoned readers will enjoy. I know I’m going to be gifting it to some of my Tarot buddies. Whether they’ve been reading for a long time, or just starting out, it’s the type of book that can help everyone become a better reader.
