This book is absolutely lovely, from cover to cover. I would recommend it for no other reason than it's truly original in its writing. When you become a student of the cards, you try to read all that you can, from every author. Unfortunately, most authors print descriptions of the cards that are variations of each other and you find yourself reading the same thing over and over again, not learning much (if anything) new. Not to mention that some birth card descriptions can be depressing and after you've read about yourself, you're left feeling doomed - facing a life of misery.

Sharon Jeffers has presented each birthcard in her own unique style. Her book is exceptionally well-written and completely different from every other book on the subject. Her descriptions of each birth date are cheerful, optimistic and informative. I would recommend her book for the writing alone, the fact that it's also very pleasing to the eye is just an added bonus. It is truly amazing just how accurate this 'card system' is when describing personality traits. In this book, the author has captured each individuals nature beautifully.

It makes a wonderful gift - not just for the student of the cards but anyone who is searching for insight into themselves, curious about their relationships or just for fun.

I've always had more of a 'thing' for the playing card deck than the tarot. Playing cards always sat better with my spirit; though I often just wondered if it was the size of the tarot deck that just didn't fit comfortably enough in my small hands. Then I came across this book. Sharon Jeffers so perfectly explained why the cards are such an important piece of our society as well as a divination tool. With the guidance I could take from the book, I switched completely to the playing card deck. I'm always the favorite at friends' birthday parties when I arrive wielding this book. Jaw after jaw drop to the ground with its detailed accuracy. The only head-scratcher I've found in the years I've owned this was my husband's birth card; but sure enough, Sharon explained what to do if a birth happened to fall close to midnight, and as usual, another jaw dropped to the ground in awe. I've recycled every book I've ever laid my hands on except this one. And this book will surely never leave me. It's just too good to part with.

Periodically I order 10 or more copies of Sharon Jeffers' book from Amazon to give to friends. I have been a fan of this book since it was published. Ms. Jeffers provides excellent portraits of every card in the deck. She certainly got mine to perfection. And everyone else I know who has read their own card depiction has agreed. A great gift book, and one to have for your own use to look up all the folks in your life, to see what makes them the way they are....both good and bad. It's a winner.

I'm thrilled to be able to point my students and clients to Sharon Jeffers' Cards of Destiny. The Birth Card delineations are insightful, spot-on accurate, and focused on the positive (aware), while offering tactful, helpful guidance for any negative (unconscious) tendencies. There is a section on how each Card tends to approach relationships, and on how children may express their Card, with guidance for parents. The suits and numbers are outlined, but the planets are not covered. This is the best introductory book. It's on my coffee table and I pick it up often.

It feels to me that there is something Very Big about the publication of this "little" book. The Oracle is being revealed here in a simple, beautiful way and I think many more people will begin to use this system as a tool. We can see ourselves so easily in these pages, leading to self-awareness; and as we read about our friends and family, we can honor our differences.

This is a stunningly-beautiful hardback book, illustrated with images from lovely eighteenth-century card decks. Anyone interested in the Cards will enjoy and learn from this book.

Each person I show this book to, is just as amazed as I was, to investigate their personal card. And those of their friends and family. They say things like "This is just amazing!" ~ "It is so right on the money on all points of my personality!" I highly recommend this book to gift to a friend ....mainly to point out that just because someone may be born under the same sign, doesn't necessarily make us all clones of each other.
It is quite refreshing to know what our strong points are and what things we will probably need to work on as we travel on our own individual paths in life.
Sharon is 3rd generation in psychic awareness of her fellow man. She also comes from a place of caring love.
This book would definitely be fun to have at a party for a bit of warmth and fun. Plus, could serve also as an ice breaker with families that are having difficulty understanding each other. Or....simply appreciating our own uniqueness and expressing our strengths while at the same time, overcoming our weaknesses.
