Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: Many tarot readers are familiar with the Nordic or Futhark runes that can be used for divination. Some historians believe that the runes originated with the ancient Etruscans and spread to northern Europe via trade routes. According to one theory, knowledge of the runes may have played a role in the development of the tarot, though there is scant evidence to support this conjecture. The runes and the tarot are distinct divinatory systems, and there is no one-to-one correspondence between them. Nonetheless, the runes and tarot cards have some archetypal images in common, the most compelling of which is tarots Hanged Man, suspended upside-down like Odin on Yggdrasil, the World Tree of Norse mythology.
Complete Book of Tarot: You should abandon a divination if the cards do not clearly address the querents concerns.
Complete Book of Tarot: Crowley cautions that merely intensifying ones study of the cards as objective things rather than as living individuals is not sufficient. The student must live with the cards, and the cards in turn must live with the student. The tarot novice and the living cards must take time to get to know one another. How else can a relationship form and grow?

Tarot Triumphs: I had learned my lesson. There is such a thing as beginner’s luck; there is such a thing as ‘the innocent Fool,’ who looks in the Fool’s Mirror and can sometimes get away with a great deal. As it is said, ‘Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.’3 But once you are no longer innocent, no longer a child in such matters, you need to proceed with respect and ethical consideration at the forefront; otherwise the gods will surely take away what they have granted. And if you use divination to serve as a form of gamblingTarot divination and gambling have certainly co-existed in their historical formsthen your prowess at reading the Tarot may be reduced to a basic, materialistic level. I was lucky in another way that I didn’t win again. It could well have coarsened my sensitivity to the cards.
