Many tarot and other metaphysical readers regard coupling issues as one of the “big five”, those often posed questions which the querent inevitably will ask. What about my job, my health, my family, money and what about that guy or gal? An experienced tarot practitioner will have a system for noticing the characters and attributes of various players in the drama of relationship finding, building or dissolution. But that system might be unique and experientially constructed; here in Tarot Coupling, there is a comprehensive discussion, complete with listing of each of the 78 cards cross referenced with a multi-factor analysis. These factors include: tarot coupling keywords, general interpretation, four phases of relationship status, and—with the major arcana, romantic suggestions to springboard from reading to actions—which address or redress the challenges found.
Specifically, the tarot coupling keywords involve certain relationship facets: positive qualities, impairment or fears, the perception of the partner, dyadic interaction, challenges, complaints of partner and, finally, desires. Tarot Coupling, providing commentary of these aspects for each of the cards, major arcana, and minor arcana—including the court cards as well—is thus a ready reference for interpreting any card in any spread in light of relationship issues. In addition, the author provides three spreads devoted to revealing the process and identity issues in any relationship. I have cast those spreads, for relationships both past and present, and found the spread layout and use of the tarot coupling analysis, to be helpful now and promising for future use.
Psycho-dynamic issues are touched upon and further exploration of that analysis could be undertaken by those who read this book, in following the author’s brief mentioning or in looking up the resources, books and people, mentioned in notes and secondary references. I will be looking online for more information about “projective identification”.
In all, there is plenty of information here to challenge a neophyte practitioner or to provide another tool in the armamentarium of the experienced tarot reader. If the publisher or author arranges a second edition, there would be a benefit from having an editor take a fine-tooth comb to correct spelling and other textual issues.
Thies presents comprehensive lessons on the anatomy of love, romance, and relationships, while sharing seasoned advice for approaching delicate subjects, such as infidelity, compatibility, and other topics germane to intimate relationships. This offering is packed with useful tips and structured guidelines for supporting insight-oriented, ethical, and therapeutic consultations.

A star, cross, circle, square or triangle spreads comes in many shapes and sizes. The spread is the corner stone to a tarot reading, it is that very thing that makes the reading possible. Even laying out just one card is a spread, a one card spread but a spread non the less. There are numerous books that are devoted to the subject of spreads, listing spread after spread out of countless spreads. Some spreads are classic, some are created at the time of the reading, and they all can be edited, modified by each reader to suit their needs and the needs of the client when needed. Spreads are magical in that they can be created out of inspiration from anything. Seriously, anything. I saw a spread that was inspired by the cast of the Comedy Central tv show South Park. A spread can make or break the reading. A poorly designed spread could create a horrible reading as compared to a properly created spread which will allow the reading to flow with ease.
I was given this book by Schiffer Publishing.
