I was pleased with this purchase at first...
on December 5, 2000
I bought this after reviewing a number of books like it and reading the reviews.
At first it seemed like a great book. After awhile, the keywords seemed to be too narrow for the true meaning of each card. For me, it took the life out of the readings - paring it down into a flat, mechanical routine.
I recently picked up a copy of Tarot Plain and Simple - and I love it! In all fairness, it could be that I was using the wrong deck to begin with. After thumbing through the Robin Wood deck (illustrated in TPS) I found the symbolism much easier to interpret and the meanings seemed to jump out at me.
I no longer use this book.
