Here is the book I thought I was getting (this book would get five stars): A detailed explanation of a large number of spreads. This explanation would include suggestions for choosing a spread and the strengths and weaknesses of various spreads. The spreads would be organized by theme, cross-referenced in any of a number of ways (number of cards used, spreads using whole decks vs. partial decks, spreads to use with unique decks, etc.). Each spread would include one or two sample spreads that would give you a flavor of what it could do.
Unfortunately, here is what "Power Tarot" is: A book of card meanings that just so happens to have a large listing of spreads. The first (and larger) portion of the book is dedicated to card meanings while the spreads (ostensibly the focus of the books) are relegated to the back. The spreads are organized not by theme but by number of cards in the spread, making it rather difficult to locate a spread you might want to use in a given situation. Most importantly (and most disappointingly), beyond the name of the spread no information or analysis is given as to why you might choose a given spread. There are no tips for reading the different spreads, no comparisons between spreads, nothing.
It is true that there are more than 100 spreads in the book, which is an impressive collection. This feat is the only reason I give the book two stars instead of one.
I mostly liked that his card interpretations offered something positive to relay to your client even if the card drawn is negative. In most of his definitions, he offers what will shift negative energy around and what will keep the positive energy flowing. Its very positive and inspiring, especially if you would like to read in more of a way to help the client shift patterns and blocks rather than just telling them outcomes.
Suprisingly, out of 288 pages, only 84 pages contain spreads--and they're in the back. The authors show you how to do a Yes/No spread, and which cards represent yes, which cards represent no and those that represent maybe. The rest of the spreads are categorized by the number of cards, spanning from the single "Card a Day" spread to the 24 card Double Horoscope Spread.
Spreads include Birthday Spread, Child Spread, Prosperity Spread, Horoscope Spread (covering all 12 Houses of the Astrological Chart), Chakra Spread (a card for each chakra plus a meditation card), Relationship Spread, Wish Spread, Career Spread, and New Relationship Spread.
My two favorites are the Mirror Spread and the Treasure Chest Spread.
The authors have this to say about the Mirror Spread: "Quite often, the qualities we dislike in another person are qualities in ourselves we aren't crazy about, either. In this way, the Mirror Spread addresses our shadow selves as well as our projections. The fifth position, what is really there, is actually a summation of a relationship's weakness or strengths.Read more ›
