Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: Starting with the significator Knight as number 1, we count four to the left and arrive at the Two of Cups, which suggests that the querent may have a love relationship or close partnership on his mind.
Creative Tarot: Calvino, both in Castle and his other writings, worked extensively with fairy-tale story lines and imagery. Travelers lost in snowstorms and forests, magical and inexplicable happenings, characters of royalty, peasantry, and nomads. Theres a man who climbs into a tree and refuses to come down. There are cities built out of words, cities built out of dreams. So, of course, a writer like that would be drawn to the tarotthey all spring from the same realm.
Complete Book of Tarot: No matter how you decide to keep your tarot journal, it is an invaluable tool in the learning process. When you review what you have written, you will be impressed by the progress you have made and will almost always gain new insights as you reflect on past readings.

Tarot Triumphs: Appropriately enough, for chapter three, I’d like to introduce the significance of the number three in relation to the Tarot. The sequence of the twenty-two Tarot Trumps lends itself well to considering numerical values, and straightaway it’s obvious that the twenty-one numbered cards divide up into three sets of seven.6 Three is therefore a good place to start exploring the numbering. ‘Three-ness’ may be less prominent in Tarot than, say, its sevenfold structure, which we shall come to later, or its interesting juxtaposition of twenty-one and twenty-two; but the pattern of three is, in my view, more useful in learning the process of Tarot divination. It opens up the idea of three as the prime basis for the creative forces of the universe, the three elements that lie behind any situation in human life, and it also gives us a base from which to explore the interactive possibilities of the cards.
