Introducing My Book: The Truly Easy Tarot!


Hi everybody! I have something super exciting to share. Over the last several months, I have been working on an incredible project: the writing of my first book, the Truly Easy Tarot!

My book, the Truly Easy Tarot, is an uncluttered guide to the tarot. It gives you an overview of the history of the tarot, and simple guideposts on how to start reading and develop your own card meanings. This guide overviews all of the 78 tarot cards, giving you a series of key terms to guide you through their message, in both upright and reversed form! The meanings are derived from a personal process of distillation that took into account both traditional views and contemporary, evolutionary perspectives. Those terms, in turn, are applied in a series of practical examples on how they work out in real life. Finally, the book takes you through 20 spreads of increasing complexity, and on a variety of subjects, so that you can apply your understanding right away! I hope this book will serve as a modern guide to the art and practice of tarot. Scroll down to take a peak on the intro video!

HOW TO ORDER: Truly Easy Tarot is available for order directly from me HERE. For no additional cost, I will sign your copy if desired! Ordering directly from me more directly supports my work.
