The book cover is very lovely, the book itself nice to read.
Abella "Jucy" Arthur
Corrine uses Golden Dawn material as her source for her Astrological associates with the cards so this book can be used with just about any deck.

If you're a tarot reader, this book will help you learn astrology.

As a professional astrologer and tarot reader, I looked forward to getting this book. There's a sprinkling of titles on how astrology connects to tarot but no one (to my knowledge) has attempted to teach tarot readers how to read their own chart by providing a great overview of astrology terms and concepts. Nor have they suggested that astrologers could learn tarot. In this way, Corrine Kenner is (yet again) ahead of the curve.

Tarot and Astrology: Enhance Your Readings with the Wisdom of the Zodiac

Although I learned the basics of astrology first, I took to tarot reading far faster and better. It wasn't until Tr. Uranus Opposition Na. Uranus happened, which activated my third and ninth houses, that I learned astrology deeply and became a professional astrologer.

Previous to becoming an astrologer, I used astrology briefly in my work and in connecting meaning to the tarot cards. I had known the signs and planets well enough to do so and I considered myself at the beginner's level in astrology.

This book will help you arrive at a level between beginner and intermediate astrological understanding. However, it does not teach you how to interpret a chart accurately or deeply. Though it will help you perform deeper tarot readings and give you a head-start in becoming an astrologer, who reads charts, if that's what you want to accomplish.

If you are new to tarot, remember not to take everything an author says as truth. A lot of what is said can be subjective, and the author's personal preference that they do not disclose as such. My rule of thumb is to read at least three to five books on a subject (preferably from different time periods) to get a fuller understanding and more accurate connection to a subject.

Tarot and Astrology are two disciplines that are interconnected with each other. It is often said that Tarot is an art while Astrology is a science. Astrology is closely interwoven into the tarot cards, that many people would miss it if they did not look close enough. In "Tarot and Astrology: Enhance Your Readings with the Wisdom of the Zodiac" veteran tarot author Corrine Kenner brings out the Astrology in each of the cards to gain a deeper knowledge to why mean what they mean. Astrology can be a weak spot for many tarot readers; Corrine's book is a excellent medium for tarot readers to get acquainted with the astrological associations in the tarot. Don't forget this book is also good for Astrologers wanting to better understand tarot.

Corrine uses Golden Dawn material as her source for her Astrological associates with the cards so this book can be used with just about any deck. The deck used in this book is the Wizards Tarot, which is a creation of Corrine.

Like any good Tarot book Corrine starts you off with the basics to tarot. The Building Block of the Tarot, Corrine explains what the Major Arcana and Minor Arcana cards are all about. The Elements associated with the four suites and their spheres of influence. So it is safe to say a beginner to tarot can pick this book up and not feel lost. As you progress the Majors are explained via the Sign they are associated with them. The cards are listed in Astrological order. That means The Emperor the first card you will read about, not The Fool. I personally don't like that it is not in Tarot order (Fool through The World) but this is a book that looks at tarot through Astrological eyes so I will let it slide.

Corrine throws in Mythology into the mix as well.

Excellent beginners guide. Very thorough. You will notice a certain redundance of descriptions, however, this can be used to your advantage as a student. I did see a lot of consistency with the info provided and that of other books on the subject of astrology. I especially loved the authors dynamic approaches to understanding the houses of a chart,the major and minor arcana. Such an abundance of options promotes a sense of ownership, and creative lisence in establishing your OWN UNDERSTANDING. An honorable book.

The information is presented in such a way that makes it easy to digest. Pace yourself.

Astrologers: A Mars in Leo can mean 20 different things for 20 different people just as an Empress archetype can be presented through various cards. Please listen to the charts and cards as they speak to YOU without limiting yourself with stern memorization.

Tarot and Astrology does an amazing thing- it explains WHY those pictures on the cards mean what they mean, which goes far towards furthering understanding of tarot cards, in clear and easy terms. Most of us realize you can read tarot just by looking at the pictures, but adding more knowledge to your base of ideas can only enhance those readings, too. If you are familiar with tarot, as I am, but new to astrology, this book does a fantastic job of taking into the realm of astrology through the back door of tarot, so I assume it also does the same if you are new to tarot but know a little something about astrology. If you are new to both, you are actually one step ahead of the game with your beginner's mind, and this book will help you get a running start with both practices.

Corrine Kenner does a very good job of taking the Golden Dawn's high and lofty ideas and bringing them down to a practical level so that they can be understood easily. I cannot even tell you what an accomplishment this is. The chapter on qabalah alone is worth the price of admission for the book, and while short, has gone far towards helping me understand it better. There is little esoteric mumbo jumbo; just clear and concise writing that cuts right to the heart of any matter.

This book is an entry level book, yet even as an advanced tarot student I gleaned much about the cards just from adding tidbits of astrology, and there is still more studying to be done! The spreads are fantastic, and if you are a fan of the Wizards Tarot, also by Corrine Kenner, you will love that this book is illustrated with those cards and you are given even further insight into the images. The book is firmly rooted in Golden Dawn tradition, though, so it is universal to most decks being published today.
