Synopses & Reviews
“Life talks to us all the time,” says author Paul Quinn, “and the Tarot is an articulate way to facilitate that deep conversation.” In this elegant yet down-to-earth book, he shows how to read the cards in conscious partnership with our own higher wisdom and so enjoy a lifelong guide for nurturing spiritual well-being, growth, balance, and joy. With illustrations from the Rider-Waite deck, the book offers 78 concise and instructional real-world case studies (one for each card) from Quinn’s past readings for himself and clients. Drawing on Jungian psychology, the Hindu chakras, and other esoteric traditions, he explains how the Tarot can reveal unconscious patterns, offer wise advice, and illuminate the dynamics of relationships to help us make positive choices from a place of greater awareness. Quinn also alerts readers to the ethical responsibilities and psychological pitfalls of doing for oneself and others, and includes advice on reading the cards for children.
This book is not just theory; it comes from someone who knows.

Paul Quinn's valuable book explores the universal spiritual power that lies not only in the ancient symbols of the Tarot, but in our own willingness to find the meaning and message of those symbols deep within ourselves. It is a useful and entertaining guide for every spiritual journey.
