Summary: Best Tarot Resource
Comment: As the other reviewer wrote, Nancy Shavick does have an excellent, spiritually oriented approach. She never stoops to fortune telling, but rather helps you uncover your path via the tarot. Her insight and relentlessly positive, enlightened/enlightening approach is awesome. By using her books I have become quite an intuitive tarot reader. I continue to use her books as references when I do layouts, because she offers so many different facets for each card. I use this book along with "The Tarot Reader" when I do readings, because I always get some more nuance by considering the many different points she makes. Those are the only two tarot books I will ever need.
Summary: Enlightened, Spiritually Based Interpretations of Tarot
Comment: Nancy Shavick's "The Tarot" is a clearly written guide for interpretting the tarot from an enlightened, spiritually based perspective. The card interpretations are positive, insightful and growth-focused. Nancy's interpretations, when put into practice can lead individuals to more fully understanding their life lessons, and how to create change to address both inner and worldly issues.
"The Tarot" is written in such a way that it would be appropriate for both the novice as well as the experienced tarot reader. It provides the "how-tos" of conducting a reading which the novice would find easy to follow. Additionally, Nancy's unique interpretations would be appreciated by many experienced tarot practioners. The interpretations address topics that are of interest to most individuals (e.g. relationships, work, creativity, personal goals). Most notibly, the book is conscise and does not overwhelm the reader with excessive dialogue, spreads, or cumbersome techniques.
