5 out of 5 stars The number one Tarot book on the market!, November 12, 2001

  Reviewer: ldblack (see more about me) from Saltillo, MS USA

Amber Jayanti delivers again! Authoress of the classic "Living the Tarot", when Amber writes a book on Tarot, we know to expect great things. In TFD, she not only lives up to our excited expectations but far exceeds them. You must see for yourself just how much information is packed in this book.

With her usual expert writing skill, Amber gives us a strong examination of a wide range of Tarot aspects, that will be useful to all levels of the reader's expertise. With sensitivity she maintains her gentle sense of fun and humor, giving her views in a non-threatening way that is especially valuable to her beginner readers. In giving concise, thorough explanations, this work becomes valuable to her intermediate and advanced readers.

It is truly no wonder and with much deserved credit, that Amber's books bring rave reviews, with use of such words as 'compassionate', 'knowledgeable', and 'insightful'. Her work itself proclaims these attributes loud an clear. She will without doubt, be a historical figure in the Tarot World with such books as these.

In this work we are getting Amber's views which while influenced by her Qabalistic leanings, does not demand that her reader have such knowledge. There are 22 sections to this book... beginning with the Introduction we are started off with some 'behind the scenes' thoughts. Making Friends with Tarot, covers pictures, archetypes, and making the Tarot personal. Who Uses the Tarot and Why, contains examples of how Tarot can be put to use. Let's Go Shopping, is a discussion on many of the popular decks and the choices available to you. History and Mystery, is a fascinating look at the historical aspects of Tarot. Mystery School Tradition, looks at what such groups are and are not, as well as what they teach or not.

A Magic Mirror, contains excellent advice and opinions on how to handle reversal cards. The 22 Major Arcana, describes each of these cards then asks pertinent matching questions. Strength, Death, and Moon have some of the best descriptions I've ever seen in print. Minor Arcana, shows different ordering choices for the suits and then the individual numbered cards of the suits. The 16 Court Cards, gives us different ways to view these cards, with examples and excellent thoughts to consider before then covering each card individually. I thought the Queen of Wands was especially good!

Experiencing the Tarot, covers finding your Soul and Personality Cards but also has an excellent article on linking cards to historical events. Handling Mixing Interpreting, is detailed thoughts for setting the proper 'stage' of respect and spiritual mood, without the usual foolishness some people get into. More importantly in this section, Amber covers situations that a person may get from their client but are better left to the experts (for example a doctor) and proper questioning methods. Meditating With Tarot, gives various ideas on this useful practice as well as covers that interesting aspect of color usage. Tarot Spreads, is insightful and ethical guidance for when dealing with others. Be sure to check out Amber's own spread! Help Wanted, covers becoming a professional in realistic and legal manner.

Several important, related sub-topics are covered. Following are sections that are easy to comprehend, as Amber shows us how to connect Tarot to Qabala, Astrology, Numerology, and the philosophy of Alchemy.

We then have the Top 10 Tarot Misconceptions and The 10 Cards Most Likely To Cause A Freak-Out, which are both wonderfully covered with good choices of cards dealt with. I was especially impressed with Additional Resources, as this section is covered with a firm grip on the reality, that different people need different books and teachers. We then come to a comprehensive, complete, and most importantly accurate, Index.

Amber's strength is in not just handing out answers, but in making her reader think for themselves. She aids them to decide how they, as an individual, feel about each card. Emphasis is always on doing what feels right for the individual, rather than dictating some personal dogma as many writers do. You never get the impression of, "it's my way or the highway!" with Amber.
Now, what didn't I like? I read through this book twice and only found one thing that bothered me... page 76 on the Fool entry; Amber didn't cover the symbolism of the little dog. That's it. Otherwise, I can only repeat two words over and over-- "excellent! wonderful!"

Be sure to check out her book, "Principles of the Tarot" too.
