Remember a time you opened a new deck and looked at all of the amazing images? You looked through the little booklet that came with the deck for instructions and started to work with the cards. But after going through it, you were left with a lot of questions. Maybe you even had questions that remained after you read one or two more books on the Tarot. Based on the authors' long experience in teaching Tarot and responding to queries in their newsletter over the past half decade, Tarot Tips gives the necessary answers to questions you have.

Reviews for Tarot Tips

Aeclectic Tarot
"...The answers Ruth Ann and Wald give are in depth, to the point, and respectful of all viewpoints. Their aim is to empower you to find your own creative self, to experiment on your own, and to enable your own wisdom. Tarot Tips is a wonderful 'storybook', as each question and answer form their own story. But it goes beyond that — in each answer is a 'way' of getting to where you want to go, a technique that will empower you, if you choose to use it...."

"...Refreshingly absent of dogma and pontification, Tarot Tips addresses questions most every Tarot user asks at some point, as well as clever reading techniques not found elsewhere. Various esoteric and astrological correlations are highlighted, as well as spreads answering yes/no questions and other queries.... This book is a wonderful resource that belongs on the shelf of both beginners and experts."

Tarot Celebrationsthis is a must-read review!
"...One of the challenges an aspiring Tarot reader like myself faces is making the leap from theory to practice when it comes to using the kind of information contained in a book like Tarot Tips, so I was fortunate to have a serendipitous encounter with Nicholas, a precocious 12-year-old who, along with his mother, were my seat mates on a recent flight from Albany, New York...."

Tarot Reflections
"...If you can't find something in this book that can help you become a better Tarot reader, you're either dead or if you must 'play with cards,' you need to consider a dealer's job in Las Vegas. I especially recommend it because of its insights, knowledgeable comments, and the obvious wealth of shared Tarot experience."

Tarot Institute
"...Lest you think this book is for advanced students only, let me point out two important things: 1) Most tips can be used by beginners and experts alike, and 2) If you keep working, you'll soon be an advanced student yourself."

School Library Journal review:

The cofounders of the Tarot School in New York offer a "simple, direct, practical" approach to what is usually presented as an esoteric topic. Drawn from the school's e-mail newsletter, the content here reflects questions asked by students. Tips are grouped into six chapters dealing with types of decks and their care and handling; interpretation and meaning of cards; reading techniques; types of spreads and layout design; other uses of Tarot (for example, in meditation); and ethical concerns that a practitioner might encounter. The writing is clear, light, and literate. Whatever their level of knowledge and expertise, students will feel that they are in the company of friendly, down-to-earth mentors and colleagues. Those who are simply curious about the subject will find an accessible view of today's eclectic Tarot as it is experienced by real people. This engaging and useful book provides a unique and valuable contribution to the subject.
