Review: Tarot Tracker: A Year-Long Journey

Tarot Tracker: A Year-Long Journey
Author: Angelo Nasios
Schiffer Publishing, 2017
Description: Hardback Book

“While the Tarot Tracker is designed with Tarot in mind, you can also use this journal with non-Tarot decks if you desire.”

The Tarot Tracker is a journal, but it is so much more. Angelo Nasios has created a guide for daily journaling, a system to help build your tarot knowledge, and pages to fill with a year’s worth of discovery.

“Tarot Tracker is designed to be your annual journal that tracks your entire year with Tarot.”

You begin your Year-Long Journey by calculating your Card of the Year. An example is given, along with the process for calculating your card. Once discovered, you write about the card and what you think the influence might be for you. The author provides a Year Card Reference Section to help you along.

“The Year Card represents an overall theme or energy that represents the year in your life.”

This is followed by a Meaning Tracker, where you can express your thoughts on each card as you begin the year. These may be traditions meanings, thoughts of your likes/dislikes, or even your emotional reactions. These meanings are yours, as you see the cards, at this time.

At the back of the book, there is a Meaning Tracker Revisited. Here you will once again go through your meanings of each card, inspired by your year-long journey. To assist with understanding the cards, the author supplies an Appendix of Card Keywords. The Seasonal Tracker gives you a place to explore The New Year Reading and a Birthday Reading.

The bulk of the book is devoted to daily cards, offering areas for both Day Reading and Night Reading, along with possible questions to explore.

This would make a great gift for someone just starting out in Tarot. The structure within the Tarot Tracker is perfect for keeping up with daily cards and working your way through the Tarot.

It would also work great for someone lacking the discipline to make it through the whole year of daily pulls. Once you start writing in the book, you are going to want to complete it. Think of it as a new year’s resolution with structure.

If you want to learn the tarot, if you love journaling, and/or if you’ve always wanted to see how the cards could play out over the whole year, one day at a time, you’ll find the needed structure within the cover of the Tarot Tracker: A Year-Long Journey.
