Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: The upright Four of Wands in the future position was also a welcome sign. The Llewellyn site offered the keywords ‘repose after difficulty’ and added ‘achieving a state of balance, peace, and contentment after a long ordeal.’ The cards suggested I keep plugging away and focusing on quality despite the long ordeal. In the end, the result should be favorable and bring contentment. I hope the cards were right.
Creative Tarot: Lets look for a minute at the Celtic Cross. It is the standard tarot spread; probably the one most in use around the world. The cards are arranged in two forms: a cross to the left, and a tower to the right. The cards in the cross illuminate a persons motivations, what she is thinking and feeling, where she has been, and where she is going. The tower names the character with a card that represents the querentthe fancy tarot term for the person asking the questiondirectly and provides an ending to the story with the final outcome card.
Complete Book of Tarot: A tarot enthusiast I know has collected more than a thousand different decks, and there are countless others on the market. Many tarot decks focus on a particular theme and appeal to a specific audience. For example, there is an Herbal Tarot for those interested in the healing properties of herbs, a Tarot of the Cat People that combines science fiction and fantasy, a Ghosts & Spirits Tarot for those interested in the supernatural, a Halloween Tarot that follows the adventures of a black cat on Halloween, not to mention a Jungian Tarot, a Housewives Tarot, a Kama Sutra Tarot (rated X), a Steampunk Tarot, a Zombie Tarot, and even a Quantum Tarot for people interested in modern physics. Whatever tickles your fancy, there is probably a tarot deck designed with you in mind.

Tarot Triumphs: How you store your Tarot cards is a matter of personal preference. Some people like to wrap the deck in silk (black silk is said to preserve their energies best). Others might consider it enough to put them back in the cardboard case in which they are sold, or even just cheerfully put a rubber band around them and drop them back in the drawer! Long ago, I had a Tarot box made for me in Morocco out of cedar wood, crafted to my design with Tarot symbols inlaid on the lid. I recall watching the craftsman cut slivers off an old tin can to make the silver decorations! I still have it, and use it, but I don’t consider it essential. I do like to house my Tarot carefully and with respect, but I believe that the important thing is to build up a relationship with the cards, and with one or two packs in particular. The way you keep them is really up to you.
