Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: Card 10, the final outcome, was the Ace of Wands. The spread seemed to be indicating that he would be given an opportunity to pursue an exciting personal or professional ambition.
Creative Tarot: Other writers, though, were more interested in the tarot as a narrative tool. Because a tarot spread like the Celtic Cross is essentially a method of storytelling, writers have latched onto the cards as a way of structuring work.
Complete Book of Tarot: While de Gébelin was fabricating his Egyptian fantasies, another French occultist, Jean-Baptiste Alliette, known as Etteilla (his surname spelled backwards), began to write about divining with playing cards. His book, entitled Enjoying the Playing Cards Called Tarot (1783), became an immense success and served to popularize tarot divination throughout France and much of Europe. Unfortunately, Etteilla swallowed de Gébelins fanciful theories hook, line, and sinker, and his popular text did much to promulgate the false idea that ancient Egypt was the origin of the tarot. 11 Nonetheless, tarot divination established a firm foothold in Europe that would last to the present century.

Tarot Triumphs: But you do not have to take up card collecting or be a Tarot historian; acquiring just one Tarot deck for your use is the main thing here. My advice is to start with the most traditional style of Marseilles pack that you can get hold of, and branch out from there if you wish. But keep the Marseilles Triumphs at the center of your Tarot practice if you plan to follow the sequence in this book.
