We do not have predetermined fates rather, we have dispositions From there we walk a garden of forking paths, and the forks we choose are what determine our future Tarot helps because it brings to our awareness the otherwise repressed impulses in our unconscious that are having an inexplicable effect on our consciousness. i know this has stunningly great reviews, but my own personal opinion that given the amount of money and the thickness of the book it s lackluster there s a lot of great information for someone just starting out or for someone restarting their tarot journey, but for those that have been reading for yearsmeh is the best i can say it will give you an interesting new take on a few things most of it though is simply redundant to the point of boring in other places and yet some are completely p i know this has stunningly great reviews, but my own personal opinion that given the amount of money and the thickness of the book it s lackluster there s a lot of great information for someone just starting out or for someone restarting their tarot journey, but for those that have been reading for yearsmeh is the best i can say it will give you an interesting new take on a few things most of it though is simply redundant to the point of boring in other places and yet some are completely pointless her writing style is dry humor mixed with oversimplifying and writing as if the reader is below average intelligence that borders on patronizing in places others things is well written, well explained.so truly hit and miss personally, i would suggest getting a sample or borrow it before investing money to see if it s something that will work for you There are so many books out there on Tarot, but this is one every Tarot enthusiast truly needs as a reference It s so comprehensive that I can honestly say if I had to narrow all of my Tarot books down to just one, this is the one I d keep. I found this book to be repetitive and contradictory For such a thick volume, the information contained within was rather sparse compared to other texts of the same nature.
