Tarot for the Healing Heart has a simple premise: now is the time to begin healing and resolution. To heal is to make whole. Disease can manifest as physical or emotional pain, broken relationships, or spiritual unrest. Learn how to create a healing atmosphere, including creating sacred space, centering, and dream work. Explore the meaning of illness and learn to understand your own personal patterns of disease and healing, including letting go of fear. You do not need to be a tarot expert or a healing practitioner to benefit from this book. All you need is a desire to heal, an open mind, and a courageous heart.

If you are new to Tarot, I'd recommend exploring some basic books regarding the use, meanings and symbolism of the cards alongside, or even better, *before* using this text.
Tarot for the Healing Heart is full of insights into the nature of health, disease and healing, how the healing process needs to be addressed on all levels -- body, mind and spirit, and how the Tarot can operate as an ally towards self-discovery and self-recovery.
Well-laid out, with contents pages separately listing Tarot activities and Tarot spreads for ease of access, readers will find this a fluid read from cover to cover. You will want to read it in sequence, at least up to Chapter eight, which gets into the individual card interpretations.
Chapter two deals with setting up an atmosphere to encourage healing including, affirming intent, creating sacred space, meditation, keeping a journal and doing dream work. Chapter three covers illness, providing an overview, Tarot layouts and other tools to assist in understanding personal patterns of disease.
Chapter four takes seekers into the heart of disease with methods to help examine the choices being made and how they affect the disease or healing process. Chapter five explores healing as a lifestyle. Chapter six guides seekers toward activities that support the healing process and chapter seven closes with some practical advise on healing yourself before you attempt to help heal someone else.
In her previous work, Jette utilizes only the Major Arcana for exploring the shadow side of human nature. Here, she uses all 78 Tarot cards. Cards are interpreted as neither inheritantly good or bad, but with a range of life experiences that can provide opportunities for seekers to learn, grow and heal. The four categories of interpretation for each card are life lessons (energy imbalances/disease), life wisdom (balanced energy/healing), actions that support the healing process, and contacting your inner wisdom (questions to further stimulate insights). Court cards can be used in some cases, to identify the type of healing practitioner an individual should seek out for help or counsel. In all cases, Jette provides a concise, in-depth analysis of each card's healing/dis-ease properties.
Chapter exercises include focused Tarot layouts, such as the Picturing the Pain Spread, which helps you examine a symptom, disease, or condition. The Good Grief spread helps explore the physical symptoms and messages gained, while enduring the process of grief and loss. The Whatever Goes Around, Comes Around Spread is an intricately designed spread, appearing like a cross when laid out, but consisting of two circles when read. The inner circle discusses what you have to release, let go of in order to heal, while the outer circle reveals what gifts you will gain when you release what is necessary on the physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual levels.
The meditations on individual cards, or, selected groups of cards, such as the Aces of the Minor Arcana (Meditation for the Inner Healing Journey), are equally well-constructed and insightful. Other positive healing activities are also included. This is another exciting addition to the serious Tarot practitioner's bookshelves. It is an essential reference for anyone interested in using Tarot for health and healing.
