Review

"I love this book! Never again will you pause during a reading to mumble, Uh, let me check the book. Dusty White alerts you to all the visual clues of each card. Big, bold pages and clever exercises let you get right to work mastering the tarot, while White serves as a perceptive and refreshingly down to earth guide."- Emmi Fredericks Author of The Smart Girl's Guide to Tarot.

"This book unlocks the secrets of tarot in a way that anyone can understand. For beginners at tarot, there is no better way to get started." –David Griffin Author of "The Ritual Magic Manual" Imperator, Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, Alpha et Omega.

From the Author

This book comes with FREE complete online support 24 hours a day. You are invited to come study with other students and get free, personalized instruction and assistance from the author online at the student forums at the Advanced Tarot Secrets website. You can practice your exercises online, ask questions, and get feedback on your progress at no extra-charge. There has never been a book written like this, and it will help you master the tarot in a fun, relaxed environment. This book is the prequel to Advanced Tarot Secrets.

The difference between average Tarot readers and masters is their ability to hear their inner voice, and see how card meanings adapt to the question being asked. This book helps you instinctively see exactly how cards blend, influence, and aspect other cards, and how to answer ANY question, even if you have never picked up a deck. Moreover, the entire book is a workbook: Almost every page is interactive, explaining a process and having you jot down your impressions of each sample card and reading. Of course there are over 156 pages of card meanings for you at the back of the book should you want to know the "traditional meanings" of each card physically, esoterically, and even reversed. On each facing page you will be asked to write in your own opinions of what the card means to you. There simply is no better-or easier-way to learn!

I wrote this workbook to help you learn the Tarot quickly and easily, and to have some fun doing it. I started reading cards around age 11, and the resources I had were scant. There simply wasn't a huge market for Tarot books, so the best I could find were a few generic texts and a LOT of misinformation. It took me years to master the Tarot; I can still remember all of the times I had to revert back to the LWB (Little White Book that comes with every deck of cards) in the middle of a reading, to ascertain the meaning of a particular card in a spread. It was embarrassing and frustrating. I felt like my cards were trying to tell me something but it was as if they were speaking some crazy foreign language no one had ever told me about.

Along the way, I was waylaid by the massive amounts of books that tried to convince me that the Tarot came from ancient Egypt, or that the Kabbalah was part of the Tarot, and that I had to study Hebrew and Rabbinical law in order to understand the "hidden meanings" of the Tarot. The truth is that the Tarot evolved as a game, and then a fortune-telling system over time under a culture of feudalism and other outdated beliefs and heavy-handed monotheism that persecuted any opposition to religious canon. This is why we have Christian allegory juxtaposed with Hebraic symbolism and Greco-Roman paganism throughout the structure of the Tarot. At the time of the Tarot's creation many artists were commissioned by wealthy patrons and nobility to pain them a set to play with. Fortune-telling has always been a popular past-time, and prior to the Tarot, and after its inception, people read dice, lots (squared-edge sticks that were a precursor to dice), palms, heads ("phrenology"), entrails (ewww!), clouds, smoke signals, and all sorts of random things. The Tarot caught on when the printing press made it possible for common peasants to be able to have a game to play after a long day of hard labors. Fortune-telling came along for the ride of course--after all, who doesn't want to know what lucky charm awaits them on the morrow? 

The bottom line on the Tarot is that it works for you. It's purpose is not to replace actual spiritual guidance from actual sages and scholars, but to show you various paths you may choose to take, or not, along your journey of life. For all of its glory and grandeur, mystery and myth, the Tarot is not a religion; it is not a spiritual path or a guide. 

The Tarot is a great tool for manifestation and goal focus. You can use it to paint a picture of where you are now, and where you want to be; or what you would like to be rid of. Unlike random images you might clip from a magazine and tape up as visual aids, the Tarot images contain a resonant power of mass consciousness that comes from centuries of countless people adding their own ideas of what each card means. Imagine a giant psychic battery of human emotions and memory that surrounds us all, and you can access this simply by drawing a card from your deck, casting a spread, or laying out a pattern of cards purposefully to create a clear path to your chosen goals. Yo do not have to attend expensive seminars or study at a mystery school for years to learn how to do this. You do need to have a decent deck of cards however--and you need to be reasonably comfortable with the fact that they are just that: 78 slips of paper with pictures on them, a tool at your disposal. A carpenter has at his disposal a hammer, nails, several saws and drills. Your tools for creation, meditation, and focus should be ones you are familiar with (just like a carpenter) and ready at hand. tarot decks come in all sizes, from decks that fit in the palm of your hand to giant poster-sized cards you can mount on your wall or hold up at a football game (not recommended though; most people would just think you are crazy). 

The Tarot offers you a great opportunity to learn how to tell the future, focus on your goals in life, avoid pitfalls and distractions; but also it can help you sharpen your psychic senses. When you build your skill with the Tarot by learning to see what the cards are saying to you at that exact moment in time you are working your "psychic muscles" just like a body-builder at a gym. The Tarot helps you focus yet simultaneously extend your perception to hear and see possibilities and guidance from the universe and the world around you. It helps you expand your awareness beyond what is right in front of you. In this way it can help you become a more rounded, and grounded person. But it is also an amazing social networking tool. Pull out your cards at a party and watch the line form as people ask you to answer their questions: "Is their boyfriend cheating on them?" "Will they get a raise, or promotion?" "Should they take that vacation to Maui?" People are fascinated by the Tarot and they will be fascinated by your ability to smile and help them find out what will happen next. When things come to pass as you said they will tell their friends about your "amazing powers." As a popularity booster it really is hard to beat the Tarot. Not bad for the price of a deck of cards!

I would like you to learn the Tarot, and I would like to help you learn it. Mostly though, I hope that you will realize that the cards are simply inanimate objects, just like a plate, a pencil, or your television. Each of these items has a purpose. The cards are a communication tool (like your pencil). The Tarot is highly personal; please, please never forget that. It works for you to help you.

Always the perfect gift

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is for no-nonsense (but silly and sometimes sarcastic) people
By May Chan on March 15, 2019
I actually didn’t expect to love this book, because I had read a bunch of books on the topic and I just couldn’t connect with them all. I actually don’t appreciate the tedious process of learning the cards because I’d rather read what I see instead of trying to recall what the card “actually means”. That has been a hurdle for me when I was beginning to do cartomancy (back in the day there were no books available so I had to stumble in the dark a lot) and I told myself if I’m going to learn Tarot I want something like a laboratory manual: it lists all of the materials needed, lists the instructions in order, then subtly gives hints on the expected results. I want something straightforward, methodical, easy to follow (I have a short attention span) and also has respect for my time. I had zero expectations with this book because I can’t fully read everything in Amazon previews but after getting my hands on this, it’s basically my “Tarot laboratory manual”. I was very, very pleased, and still now. (If I had something like this when I was learning cartomancy, who knows what could have happened, but that’s another story for another time).

What I love about this book is that it’s so straight to the point, everything is basically already there. The only other ingredients to complete the equation is a deck (RWS is a recommended deck for a reason) and one’s personal dedication. For some people, maybe they want more of the dramatic flairs and other stuff like history, the metaphysical things, spiritual ideologies, the works, so it’s probably why they didn’t like how “cold and dry” this book was. But not me, I actually like the fact that this book ASSUMES you’re already a spiritual person and you only need to unlock your gifts. That pretty much got me sold. I could just sit there, do the laboratory exercises, then come out feeling like my skills improved, even for a bit. I don’t have to feel guilty about anything. Hey, I even signed up for the free Tarot school, and even just skimming the rest of the book I could safely say that the book does cover substantial grounds. But in my opinion, the real gift of this book lies in the fact that it only teaches ONE, BIG CORE SKILL (not gonna give away spoilers here) which is very important not just in card reading but in living life fully, in general. All of the exercises build upon this skill, and if you’ve been reading cards for quite some time I can totally agree in the significance of this core skill. For me, it allows a degree of flexibility and freedom, which I wasn’t able to get from other Tarot books. I could even use these skills to improve my playing card reading skills, even oracle cards, so I could safely say that the lessons in this book can be adjusted based on your needs (once you’ve gotten the hand on reading the Tarot, or if you’re open-minded enough to mix-and-match or interconnect methods from one type to another).

I highly recommend this book for those who want to start reading cards for themselves or for other people, those who wanted to improve their other psychic skills, and better communicate with their intuition, but also wants to get the job done with the least number of steps possible (because 24 hours is not enough to do everything). It’s not that the style written has no heart, but it’s just stated as a matter of fact, and that a great deal of “what do you think” is involved. Your ideas are just as valid (maybe even more valid) that what others say, and that can build character as well as intuition. As a person who has worked for a long time in a laboratory, a leeway on how to do things and get things done is just as important as staying true to the core values or logic of each task, so that consistency can be achieved. Those things are possible with this book.

One last thing: If you think intuition is a whole lot of woo-woo, after giving this book a try, even the 30-day challenge, you might start seeing the world differently, hopefully a lot more positive. I wish you well on that.
