Tarot for Beginners

Over the years that I've been reading tarot cards, folks curious about learning the Tarot have asked me, "How do I make sense of the cards? There are so many meanings—which do I choose? What do the vague card meanings listed in books mean for my actual life?"

I tell them that the key to reading tarot cards is accepting and trusting yourself. 

And that's simply a skill. When you have clear explanations and exercises to guide you, listening to your intuition is easier than it sounds!

So, I wrote a clear and simple guide to the Tarot that teaches the meanings of the cards, along with the basics of how to use your deck to lay spreads and get perspective on your life. This book helps you connect with your intuition so that you can cultivate more joy, love, empowerment, beauty and community in your life!
