Tarot Books

Complete Book of Tarot: When upright, the Two of Swords suggests that your inner state is calm and finely balanced. You are able to review your options and take reasoned decisions against a backdrop of changing circumstances and varying emotions. If you’ve had differences with others, you can see the value in resolving differences and burying the hatchet. This state of peace and self-possession characterizes the rapport you feel with your closest friends. True friendship is based on the tender and honest balancing of the needs, wishes, and feelings of both parties.

Complete Book of Tarot: Fact 6: The Oxford Dictionary defines psychic as ‘relating to or denoting faculties or phenomena that are apparently inexplicable by natural laws, especially involving telepathy or clairvoyance.’ 7 In my view, the tarot is a tool that allows us to tap into our intuition, the results of which often appear ‘inexplicable by natural laws’ because we tend to ignore intuitive hunches as we grow into adulthood. The tarot helps restore the balance between rational analysis and listening to our gut. With continued practice, you may be surprised at how often unexpected yet verifiable impressions seem to leap from the cards.

Complete Book of Tarot: To calculate his cards for the year in which Clinton was impeached (1998), we would add the month and day of his birth (August 19) to the year in question, 1988: 8 + 19 + 1998 = 2007. Then, reducing 2007, we get 2 + 0 + 0 + 7 = 9, the Hermit (IX). Thus, the year measured from Clinton’s birthday in August of 1998 until August of 1999 was a time of withdrawal and turning inward to seek spiritual wisdom. Themes of introspection and personal integrity are typical of a Hermit year.
