Book Details
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 tarot’s Hanged Man, suspended upside-down like Odin on Yggdrasil, the World Tree of Norse mythology.

Tarot Triumphs: To sum up, first attempts at Tarot reading are often best kept as light, playful, and varied. Take opportunities that come your way, give it your best shot, and don’t worry too much if you can’t always fathom whether the reading is a ‘success.’ Sometimes we may miss the mark. Sometimes the person asking the question blocks the reading with resistance or an adverse emotional attitude. But sometimes, too, the reading may be more relevant than is obvious at the time. The querent might ask you about one matter, but you could feel the need to respond with something different. Later, the querent may say, ‘You know, what you said turned out to be right on the mark. I didn’t realize it at the time.’ With Tarot divination, we need to go with what the cards tells us.
