Tarot Plain and Simple by Anthony Louis

Tarot Plain and Simple
Tarot Plain and Simple by Anthony Louis is one of the best guides to have as you begin your tarot journey. It is clearly written and easy to follow.

Anthony Louis puts a variety of possible meanings for each card right at your fingertips. In the end, you will develop your own interpretations of each card, but with this book you will find guidance and suggestions to help you along the way.

Images from the Robin Wood Tarot are provided for each card. This deck is based on the Rider Waite deck and rich with Pagan symbolism. The images are bright and attractive. (Warning-graphic nudity)

An overview of the different divisions of the cards are provided; Major, Minor, and Court. There is also an overview of each suit. The meanings of the cards are broke down into sections of overall view, keywords and phrases, situation and advice, and people. The same is provided for the reverse position of each card.

Along with suggested card meanings, you will also find an overview of the tarot, a chapter on how to do a spread and interpreting the cards, and a chapter to help you bring it all together. The Celtic Cross Spread, one of the most popular spread for most tarot readers, is described in great detail, and three example readings are provided for guidance.

You will also find sections on Astrology and the Tarot and Numerology and the Tarot. In the section on numerology you will also find the formula to find your Life Path number and your personal year number.
