Most tarot books are for beginners. Here, Anthony Louis, famous for Tarot Plain & Simple, shares decades of insights and information that can help you become an advanced practitioner. Not merely "more of the same," Louis provides real world examples of how to use your intuition to improve your readings, how to understand tarot reversals and how to include the meanings of numbers, the elements, and the tarot's court cards.

Louis reveals the common background of astrology and tarot, explaining astrology for tarot readers clearly and in a way that makes sense. Then he shows how to use the tarot with astrological concepts to give advanced readings that change people's lives.

Review: This book was a bit more than I bargined for. I really liked the background and history on Tarot itself. But my eyes started to glaze over when it got to the birthcharts and planitary info.
I found the horascopes and God/Goddess information interesting. Which planet is affliated with which God or Goddess and horascope symbol. What they stood for and the tarot card that symbolized it. This was all interesting to me.
But I couldn't wrap my head around Scorpio moving this way and that or how it was tied into tarot. Maybe I was just being dense, but it lost me. So sadly this got a DNF.
