About the Author
Ly (pronounced lî) de Angeles was first published in 1987, and she has had six books released worldwide to date. She has an international reputation as a psychic, teaches and lectures on many associated subjects, is an exponent of several martial arts and, currently, is an accredited Sensei in the art of Iaido, the Japanese art of the sword.

She is known to be very outspoken on matters pertaining to the sustainability and guardianship of Earth and the rights of all species to self-determination.

Highly recommended for any student of Tarot, be you a neophyte, jaded traveller, or experienced reader - there is always something to learn
The author mentors the reader through the enigma of Tarot using thorough exploration - her unique teaching style - which works very well for me as it feels she is sitting beside me talking me through the lessons. Ms De Angeles is concise, clear and leaves no stone (or should I say card) unturned. Using years of experience, the author has drawn upon wisdom gained from dealing with unexpected situations that can and do crop up during a reading, such as appearance of spirits who know the client and may have a message. The Reader is taught ways of managing these occurrences and more.
Buy this book and you will learn effective communication techniques, how to provide structure for your readings, boundaries; confidentiality, using common sense; basically all you need to know should you decide to take up the vocation of Tarot reading for the public at large, or not.
In conclusion, Ms De Angeles not only takes you on an enjoyable, comprehensive and fascinating journey through the meaning and magick of each card in the Tarot in a way I can guarantee you have never been taught before. She also includes invaluable advice on maintaining objectivity, staying aware of your own motives and keeping on track, AND you will enjoy yourself in the meantime!
What I also like about the book is that the author makes it clear that the interpretations are just one perspective. I find this always to be of great value when a writer says this because the fact is, they are only guidelines based on that person's experience, and ultimately, you need to go with your personal gut feelings about readings and cards.
