Learning Tarot Reversals is easy and fun with Joan Bunning's lesson and exercise oriented approach.
Joan explains how archetypal (life) energies are represented in the cards (both upright and reversed) and how reversals reveal energy levels that gather and dissipate in cycles and patterns.
Complete with illustrations, diagrams, written exercises and hands on practice with the cards, Joan teaches us to see how these energies in their various forms, are presented in reversed cards.
Both beginning and more experienced tarot readers and instructors, will find Learning Tarot Reversals to be yet another dimension in tarot practice and a deeper more detailed journey into self-discovery through the Tarot.

This book is an excellent learning tool that helps you to understand tarot rather than simply memorizing the meanings. By understanding tarot and feeling energies of each card you can actually interpret the cards.

The book talks a lot about the tarot in terms of energy and explains how the energy changes if the card is reversed. It consists of 8 lessons, each lesson having a couple of pretty neat exercises on how to interpret the meanings and energies of tarot. Also it has a list of all 78 cards with a brief explanation. In addition to it, at the end of the book there are answers to the exercises.

So far it has been one of the best tarot books I've ever bought.

Joan Bunning has a very interesting approach to reversed cards. She teaches us about the waxing and waning of energies that affect both upright and reversed cards, and illustrates how these energies interact in our everyday lives. Her lessons on reversed cards offer insight both to beginners who are new to reversals as well as to more experienced readers.

Ms. Bunning uses keywords for each card and then gives examples of reversed interpretations for each phase of energy as you sense it. Judging by the current flow of energy in your life, she encourages intuitive interpretation by paying attention to energy cycles. The cycles of absent, early phase, and late phase energies are examined.

Her lesson format enables you to work unpressured and at your own pace, and the lessons build on each other as you learn. Fun and helpful exercises directly follow the lessons. I would highly recommend you use these exercises as they are a great way to learn your deck. She gives suggestions for answers to the exercises as well as encouraging your own personal interpretation, rather than rote memorization.

I would recommend reading her first book Learning the Tarot: A Tarot Book for Beginners first, as it gives a solid foundation in Tarot, and this reversal book assumes you have already absorbed the lessons of the first book, if you are a beginner. For those who are ready to move on to reversals, this is what you've been looking for!

If you are a student (or experienced) reader of the Tarot, this book will really help you to understand the cards in reverse. Originally I learned that a reversal was "negative" energy but this book dismisses those fallacies. I keep it handy not only as a reference but a reinforcement of my interpretations.

I am starting to learn the Tarot, some books do not explain the reversed cards or dismiss them all together. I felt I needed a thorough but well explained book on the subject. Joan Bunning's book give clear and logical explanations and exercises to enhance your understanding. Reversed cards are as important as upright cards - this book is excellent for beginners.
