Tarot Books

Portable Magic: The planet Venus rules the first decanate of Cancer, which is the decanate given to the Two of Cups. The planetary modifier of Venus is the Empress, which seems a very appropriate choice for this ritual.

Complete Book of Tarot: About a decade after reading Eden Gray’s book, I made a decision to master the tarot. My method was to read everything I could about the cards and do hundreds of readings, taking careful notes and following up on the outcomes. It dawned on me (I’m a slow learner) that although reading books about tarot is helpful, the best way to learn is to use the cards often and review consistently how the symbols in the cards play out in real life.
