Best Tarot Books: Personal Recommendations

Level: Intermediate to Advanced

Sometimes we, or a querent, has a question that is a little more specific than many of the spreads we use on a daily basis. This is a great book if you are ready to start designing your own spreads for those occasions. It also has some very good pre-made spreads in it.

 

Every Day Tarot: A Choice Centered Book by Gail Fairfield
Level: Beginning to Advanced

For a while, I was telling everyone that my favorite tarot book was out of print, so they had to buy it from a reseller to find it. I now find they have simply changed the name.

"Every Day Tarot" is the new (in print) version of my favorite tarot book, "Choice Centered Tarot". In my humble opinion, you can't find better information in a tarot book anywhere. It's my favorite tarot book and has been for many years. I like the different approach it takes, stressing intuition & addressing symbolism and numerology, rather than just rote meanings of the cards. One of my most valued tarot books, I use it for my classes, and after twenty years, I still pull this book out as a trusted reference.

 

Pictures from the Heart: A Tarot Dictionary by Sandra A. Thomson
Level: Beginning to Advanced

This book is a must have for any person who is serious about learning the Tarot. While I traditionally eschew books which simply list of meanings of the cards, this book is so much more.

 

 

tarot_spreads"Power Tarot: More Than 100 Spreads That Give Specific Answers to Your Most Important Question" by Trish Macgregor
Level: Beginning to Advanced

This book has got a lot of good spreads in it, categorized by number of cards used. It has the card interpretations for each card, which normally I don't find useful, but I like the way it separates it into how to interpret the cards for different situations in a reading: ie, work, relationships, etc. It also has some really good general tarot information interspersed throughout the chapter headings. Well worth it.

 

Tarot Journaling by Corrine Kenner
Level: Beginning to Advanced

This is a wonderful book. Inspired by the book "The Artist's Way," Kenner has some wonderful ideas for all different types of journaling. I think it's a must have for tarot readers of all levels of experience.




tarot-spreads "Tarot Spreads and Layouts" by Jeanne Fiorini

Excerpt: This book has, by far, some of the best information on tarot I've ever laid my hands on. I do have to admit that I have a slight bias towards the author only because in reading her book, it seems as though she and I have very similar reading styles and values, but that aside, what impresses me most about "Tarot: Spreads and Layouts" is the fact that the content is not the common information you find in most books on the topic.

Level: Intermediate & Advanced

I've been reading a long time and have never had particular problems with the court cards, but this book has opened up a lot of new ways for me to relate to them.

Not everyone will be interested in every chapter, it is rather diverse, but the information is so thorough, even without those very advanced chapters, I think any serious student of the tarot will find it a valuable resource.
