Step-by-Step Tarot by Terry Donaldson
Information: 210 pages, paperback
They say: Step-by-Step Tarot is a course aimed at demystifying tarot reading. It will have equal appeal for both the beginner and the more experienced student. Whether you feel that you have psychic qualities or have a more down-to-earth interest, this book will give you the training you need to start working with the tarot. If you have been studying the subject but do not feel confident enough to read for other people, this is an ideal book to help you develop your skills.
The workbook guides you though a practical step-by-step course that is very easy to use. It gives helpful advice on choosing the right pack and learning the meanings of each card. Various spreads are described, along with ways of achieving very accurate readings.
Terry Donaldson is a highly experienced tarot reader and teacher who has developed his techniques from over 20 years experience. He is the founder and director of the London Tarot Centre.
We say: When giving the meanings of the cards this book has two main separate sections: heightened meanings and concentrated meanings.
For the heightened meanings Donaldson uses more lengthy descriptions, which may be good to browse through at your leisure, hopefully adding to your knowledge, while the concentrated meanings can be more useful when you need a quick reminder or a new idea while reading. But this book is more than a list of meanings and has many good tips for reading, and I think most will find some interesting advice on how to proceed.
The book is illustrated with the Morgan Greer Tarot but can be used with any deck.
