For hundreds of years, people have pondered the meanings of the mysterious Tarot cards and their uses. Now you can get insights into the cards via tradition, symbolism, and comparison to several other spiritual traditions in Tarot Companion by Tracy Porter.

If you want to learn the Tarot, study the cards, or expand your knowledge of them, this book will be one of the most valuable on your bookshelf. It begins with a complete explanation of the meanings of every one of the seventy-eight cards of the Tarot. But that is just the beginning.

The book immediately goes into some of the more esoteric aspects of the Tarot. Here you will learn the meanings of the people in the Tarot, including those on the Major Arcana cards, and the face cards in the Minor Arcana. Then you will learn about combinations of cards in a spread. This is followed by a section on how to use the cards to determine when something will happen. And there's still more.

A major section in this book is the symbolism dictionary. In this part of the book you will learn the secret meanings of almost 100 of the symbols you will find in your Tarot deck. From sunflowers to pentacles, a cypress tree to a wreath, the hidden meanings are revealed so you can use them in a reading.

Next, Porter compares the Tarot to other spiritual systems and shows how they can enhance your reading techniques. This includes numerology, astrology, runes, colors, I Ching, and more. Finally, you will learn over twenty Tarot spreads you can use.

No matter what system of Tarot divination you use, this book will be, as its name says, a valuable companion. It will help open doors you didn't know existed, improving both your Tarot reading abilities and your understanding of other spiritual systems. Keep this book with you!
