We hold the universe in our hands when we pick up a deck of Tarot cards-and in the right hands the Tarot is a powerful and accurate window into the unknown. 78 pieces of colored card stock filled with archetypal images from our subconscious mind, divided and organized in harmony with the mystic mathematics of the Holy Qabalah, the Tarot's perfection is pure beauty, and it is in beauty that eternal Truth is revealed.
But in order to access that Truth, we must allow the cards to speak, and to do that we must lay them out before us. The magick begins when the cards are spread. The spread transforms a handful of silent cards into an oracle of the gods. But what spread to use? Almost every Tarot reader uses a different spread-Celtic Cross, Three Card, Tree of Life, Wheel of the Planets, Wheel of the Year, even the One Card Draw.
The right spread is the key to developing our intuitive relationship with the cards. Joan Bunning's newest offering helps answer the question, "Which spread is right for me?" and introduces us to this most critical component of the Tarot reading. The work is a veritable encyclopedia of Tarot spreads which will thrill the novice with possibilities and inspire veteran Tarotists to break out of their ruts. Chapters include specific spreads for questions relating to relationships, family matters, career, money, health, and perhaps the most often queried subject for Tarot readings, love. Sample spreads are clear and comprehensive and range from the multiple-card Gypsy spreads to the fast and easy (yet highly insightful) Three Card Draws.
