One of the questions I hear the most is, “How did you learn tarot?”
So many of you want to learn, or improve your practice. But it can feel overwhelming to know how to start, and even how to continue once you’re beyond the beginner stage. The little white books that come with each tarot deck don’t tend to offer much help.
There is no right or wrong way to begin learning tarot. In fact, I don’t think anyone who reads the cards ever truly stops learning – there are so many different ways of working with the cards, so many different decks out there, so many perspectives to be shared.
Books can certainly help, and so I decided to bring you Going Beyond the Little White Book: A Contemporary Guide to Tarot.
I put this book together with the intention of offering something that can be of interest to readers at varying levels. Yes, this is a great book for beginners, but in sharing some early drafts, I also found that it was just as helpful to more seasoned tarot practitioners who were looking for new layers to their interpretations.
At over 300 pages, this book was truly a labour of love. Throughout, I’ve offered real-life examples of how I’ve seen every card of the tarot manifest in people’s lives. This gives you the chance to go beyond a basic meaning of a card and begin to interpret how tarot’s energy can translate into our day-to-day lives.
Whether you’re reading for others, or using tarot as a personal tool, I’ve included intentions and mantras for each card, too, to help you make deeper intuitive connections to the cards.
Going Beyond the Little White Book is available in softcover or ebook format. (I recommend the soft cover – it’s gorgeous!)
If you grab one, I’d love to hear what you think about it.
“For anyone interested in taking their own tarot practice further, this book is a gem. The level of detail about each card is impressive and yet so focused on relevant and valuable insights it never feels inundating. It’s the perfect tarot companion guide for the complexities of contemporary careers, relationships and creative life.”
