Tarot Made Easy by Nancy Garen, published in 1989 by Simon & Schuster; is a must have for any Tarot reader! It is the most comprehensible and detailed Tarot book that I personally have ever read. It literally breaks down every card's meaning into a multitude of categories to cover every aspect of life.
There are 32 categories provided for each individual card. So if you're interested in knowing what is going on in your love life, read only those categories that pertain to that aspect. The same applies for any question the querent may have. Trust me, there's a category to cover any and every topic and question you can imagine!
It is written in layman's terms. It is easy to understand and follow. This book would be ideal for the beginner who has never done a reading or is just beginning to learn how to read the Tarot. It explains the very basics of using the Tarot.
I feel it would be a great guide for those who want a clear cut interpretation of any card pulled. It is a wonderful tool for pulling daily Tarot cards for insight and guidance.
Also, it discusses the process of understanding the associated symbology for each card. Denoting how to effectively determine time, seasons and even what month to expect certain events to take place according to what cards have been pulled.
Each category can be read as a stand alone or they can be combined as a thorough interpretation. In this way, you are guided from the focus of the reading through very detailed categories until you reach the probable outcome.
What is so unique about this book is that it provides not just mundane (physical everyday) aspects, but also focuses on the esoteric (spiritual) side of things. It provides the reader with special guidance to apply to their present circumstances.
It focuses on teaching the importance of paying attention to the symbols and influences of each card whether it's astrological, elemental or numeric associations. It helps also provide an easy way to determine the Significator card. As well as, how to identify what individuals in the querent's life are likely be of influence at the time of consulting the cards.
It also provides some pretty cool Tarot spreads that will undoubtably offer a more accurate and detailed reading than your typical standard layout. It also teaches you what to do if you need further clarification on any card drawn. This helpful tool will greatly enhance your understanding of the vast possibilities that exist within each card's interpretation.
This book really does cover everything! It takes all the guess work out for beginners. From beginning basics to the more advanced reader, you'd greatly benefit from reading this book.
To Your Divinatory Success!
