From School Library Journal

Adults/High School-If your teens are asking for Silver Ravenwolf's books, this title is certain to be the one most checked out in your games section. It provides an interpretation of the images on the traditional tarot deck more closely related to the concerns of young adults than the standard titles. Its take on the suite of coins, for example, is more likely to focus on conserving resources and preparing to make money, or on the course of a first job, than on where one may be falling on the continuum of an established career, the usual adult concern. The cards in the cups suite tend to be more cautiously optimistic than the usual deck about love and romance, and acknowledge that the primary emotional relationships in a teen's life are more likely to be with parents and siblings. Although the explanations are geared to a younger audience, they are faithful to the more traditional ones of the tarot cards, and readers who move from this book to others on the subject won't be left lost or confused.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book solely out of respect for the author, as I enjoyed greatly both "Tarot spells" and "Tarot your everyday guide". I didn't realise at the time that the book was focused on young adults taking the first steps in this field. I am 28 now, so I don't really feel I am young or an adult right now, but I have to say I shouldn't have worried, as this book is great for everyone. It covers a lot of things I've not seen anywhere else, such as card getting indyosincratic, making different interpretation systems compatible or searching for an specific card in a spread. And once again, I am impressed by the clarity, sense of humour and intelligence in which all this material is covered. If you are starting out with tarot, this is a great book. If you are not, it is still a valuable addition to your collection.

I bought this book for my daughter this Christmas, because she is starting to have an interest in Tarots. So before I wrapped it up, I flipped through the pages, and found my self, not being able to put the book down. Know, yes I know this book is intended for the younger generation, as it tackles issues teenagers would face, and how each certain Tarot card, would fall in that category, blah blah blah. But I found information in this book that you will not find anywhere else. Although this book gives the traditional interpretations for many of the cards, it also gives fresh and new ideas, new insights that really do make since and goes with the changing times.
This has to be "one" of my favorite books on the Tarot subject. Needless to say my daughter caught me reading the book, so that spoiled that, but it is a book that has brought us both together, in a subject that we both love.
I highly recommend this book for all those starting to learn the divination art form of the Tarot, as well as those advanced, trust me, there are may good surprises in this book. A+++++ * * * * * 5 Stars, good book, and very easy to learn and enjoy. This book is destined to be a classic amongst the young, as well as the young at heart.

Format: Paperback
"I first bought this book first a month ago and have since bought both her other two books." I said this in 2002 and I'm still as enthusiastic about Janina's work now as I was then, it is simply a joy to read her prose

The book is richly illustrated with cards from a variety of Tarot Decks, some traditional, some fanciful. Providing a solid introduction to Tarot Art, and Comparative Tarot, which I feel really strengthens any reader.

The Interpretations of the cards start from a pretty traditional point of view, but as she goes deeper, her, wisdom, experience as a reader, and positive nature shine through. These factors combine to make this a very uplifting and positive book for readers of every age. I am myself twice the age of her intended reader, yet I found I had no problem reading the book.

She does not talk down to her young audience, and this ensures the book encounters no age barrier. It left me with lot to chew on, not only for my self, and as a tarot reader, but also as a father with a daughter the age of her intended audience. If you buy one New Age book this year, buy this one, whether or not you read Tarot.

I originally reviewed this book in 2002, now in 2005 it is still the first Tarot book I reach for if I want to compare my own interp of a given card with someone else's vision.

I just bought this book as a gift to a friend and started reading it myself. I couldn't put it down. I'm buying myself a copy now! It really explains a lot more about the basics of understanding the symbols and meanings.

Format: Paperback
Seldom is a book suitable for beginners and advanced. Often, advanced books are too difficult for beginners, and beginners books are too basic for the advanced to learn anything from it. So how does it work for this book?

This book definitely aims for the beginners when in creation. I especially love the way it organize the ideas, for example a group character discuss the personality of the figure in the card, n other ideas for the fool, like embarrassment, fooling round, romance, opportunity, travel, warning of danger. For the advanced, often is the case, we gather the ideas of this card from different books, but here it lists pretty much out the ideas connected to it. I wish I had started out with this book to skip through reading tons and tons of tarot books just to come to this level!

Another thing is what the advanced look for most in it is that it sometimes talks about reverse meanings in different ideas which I sense it is from her own real experience, and adding some illustrations an examples in reading these cards within the ideas gives much depth to the book. A very experimented and well-read tarot writer makes it easy for us to learn tarot.

Format: Paperback
I bought this back in adolescence when I started being interested in the tarot. By then I had a few and I had trouble applying it to my life. This book is a godsend! It is fantastic, taking each card and giving different areas of interpretation for each. It relates it to relationships, career, studies, friends, family, personal growth etc.

Now I am 23 and I have been using this book as my main book for ten years. I intend to do an online class in the tarot, but I will always go back to this book. After a while I started writing down the dates in the margins of every time I pull a card. It is fantastic to have a book you can use reliably enough to do that! I have found the explanations of spread positions to be very clear and helpful as well. I am sure this book will still apply through my twenties as well, beyond who knows! I may pass it on to my little cousin when the time comes or buy her her own copy because it is so good!
