Review: Quick and Easy Tarot by Lily Oak
If you want to learn to read tarot cards but don't know how to go about it, a new book called Quick and Easy Tarotby hedge witch Lily Oak is what you need. It is aimed at absolute beginners and guides learners through the very first steps from choosing a tarot deck to discovering what the cards mean and how to do simple readings.
What I particularly like about this book is that it is short, succinct and to the point. I read it from cover to cover in under an hour, but just because it is short doesn't mean it lacks information. In fact, it really does include all you need to know to get started and is written in a very practical way with a lot of common sense advice.
In particular, author Lily Oak stresses the importance of taking time to look at each card in the deck you buy and making a few notes about what it seems to mean to you personally. This really is the best way to learn tarot reading and to attune yourself to a specific deck. However, Lily also includes short descriptions of the standard definitions for each card, which are very useful to refer to when you are learning.
You can download Quick and Easy Tarot for the Kindleor order it as a paperback through Amazon.
Lily Oak also runs online courses in various aspects of hedge witchery through her website: http://www.hedge-witchery.com/
