I want to learn how to read, interpret and use tarot cards, plus the history behind it as well as learning everything about astrology. What are some good books to read that will educate me on the subject?

If you already don’t have a tarot deck, I suggest going to the store and looking over tarot decks if you find one that really calls out to you than get it. You can also try this on line like on Amazon picking which deck you want. Usually the deck comes with a little book which is helpful for the particular deck. But as far as the bigger picture believe it or not Idiot’s Guide for Tarot has some really good exercises in it as well as solid definitions. Any book by Mary Greer will be very helpful to you.

There are so many tarot books out there. Heck, I’ve even written one. It’s called Tarot Cassy’s Way. It is a nice guide of meanings, but also has numerological aspects, explains the use of colors, etc. But you can also go on YouTube and find some tarot meanings for free. Some good videos are put out by Krystel High Corell. Not sure I spelled that correctly. Look for MagickTV. These guys are really good at teaching stuff. Amanda Goldston also has free tarot meanings on You Tube. Her handle is amandagoldston. She and I are both also at http://www.thezenfrog.com I try to help people when I can, but I’m writing several books, so my time is sporadic. Still, it’s really not enough to grab a book and a deck. You have to handle the cards, and handle them, and handle them. I have some good advice on how to begin in my book. http://search.barnesandnoble.com/Tarot-Cassys-Way/Cassy-LeBedz/e/9781931062343/?itm=1
It really is a must that you learn to read the cards with your own eyes, so to speak, before you delve into rote memory reading. The meanings are a guide, the tarot is a tool to open your psychic eye. Good luck. Enjoy the path.


For tarot, you could try The Cartomancer’s Key by Talia Felix. It’s got history, easy to use charts, and isn’t as “woo-woo” as a lot of the stuff on the market.
For astrology, actually the best book I’ve seen for it was a specifically love-oriented book called Sextrology by Stella Starsky and Quinn Cox. But if you just want to learn about it in general, Joanna Martine Woolfolk’s Only Astrology Book You’ll Ever Need has good reviews.
