This book has boosted my confidence and given me many new tips and insights into reading tarot.
I placed the cards out on my table from each case study and wrote up my own reading for each spread. I wanted to do this before I read what Josephine had written about them. Then I compared her reading to mine, it was nice to know I am on the right track so far. It was facinating reading how Josephine explores the cards and arrives at her answers. I had many ah-ah moments through the book as certain cards were linked together and their meaning.A good read and very helpful to me.

I received the book within a couple of days and have been learning from it since. The case studies are very clearly explained and easy to understand. It makes learning tarot that much more interesting. Great learning tool!

5.0 out of 5 stars Taking Tarot tothe Next Level Dec 18 2011
By Amanda Hilbrecht - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There are many great books for beginning tarot readers, one of which has been written by Josephine Ellershaw and is packaged with the gorgeous Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti, but there are many fewer for intermediate to advanced readers. I feel this is likely because like Othello and the guitar, tarot is quite easy to pick up, satisfying to do so from Day One, but takes a lifetime to master. Everyone learns differently, and the myriad books on the market offer great starts, but very few books cover what happens after you know what the Four of Cups means to you. This book begins to fill that gap quite neatly.

The author writes from the perspective of a working tarot professional, and professional she is as she takes us step by step through readings with her clients (all of whom knew they were going to be included as case studies in this book). It is actually not that difficult to learn some meanings for seventy eight tarot cards, in my experience, but the magic lies in learning to combine them into a reading that paints a story. Josephine Ellershaw shows how to take the multiple cards of her particularly used spreads and weave them into a story to which the sitter can relate, and that is a truly wise thing.

The spreads the author uses are large, but she breaks them down into small groupings so that they are easily strung together into a relevant story, and while she makes it look deceptively simple as a long time reader I can assure you it is not always. Even so, by following her sage and easily read advice, anyone can learn to make their readings flow as well. As someone who mentors new readers and teaches tarot, I feel as frustrated as my students do when they come to me with large spreads that are not clearly labelled and separated, but that is not an issue with these spreads at all. If I had learned nothing else from this book, the price would have been justified in learning these spreads alone, as within them is a potential mine of information for the reader to relay to the client.

My one complaint with the book is that there are no pictures to illustrate the spreads given, only diagrams, as tarot is a visual art, with the pictures on the cards being cues to the reader and jogs for the sitters' mind, but once I took the author's advice to lay out my own cards to reflect the reading I was studying with her, everything became quite clear. By the time I had gotten through a couple of her readings, I actually saw using my own cards as a positive feature because my own speak to me, just as yours should speak to you.

Josephine Ellershaw has written a tarot book worthy to grace every readers' shelf, and has done so with grace, wit, and honesty. She offers excellent advice that pertains to both the art and business side of tarot reading, for students of any level. You won't find a list of what she thinks each card means, since the book assumes the reader to have a working knowledge of their cards, but you will find new and deceptively simple ways to read for yourself and others in this book. I give it glowing praise!

4.0 out of 5 stars Getting inside the mind of a tarot reader July 7 2012
By Anthony Louis - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book by a master tarot reader. It is not an easy read, however. You have to put in a lot of work to appreciate this text. The book gives only diagrams of spreads so that unless you have a photographic memory you need to lay out the spreads Ellershaw uses with two separate decks. Thus, to do the book justice, you need to read it near a large table where you can spread the cards in their rather extensive layouts.

Nonetheless, once you spread the cards and read along in the text, you are in for a treat. The book presents the real-time consultations of diverse clients so that you can see what the reader was thinking and saying and how the client responded. It's a slow and tedious process but is well worth the effort.

The only similar book I'm aware of that gives this much detail about actual tarot readings is Richard Roberts' The Original Tarot & You (first published in 1971). Serious tarot readers will want to read both these texts because they give the blow by blow descriptions of actual readings as they are unfolding.

Both books suffer from not presenting the images of the actual cards used in the readings (which is the reason for only 4 stars).

4.0 out of 5 stars Honest Insight Oct. 4 2011
By becka - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love the honest feedback provided by the clients. This book bravely takes you into a tarot reading and the thoughts that go through the mind of the reader. I say bravely because we all fear misinterpreting items or rationalizing over our gut reactions. Here that is all laid bare for the rest of us to see. The emphasis on the cards NOT laid is also helpful. The only draw back to this book was having to lay each spread as the card pictures are not provided.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and fun read Jan. 15 2012
By Linda Bernier - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It was interesting to read about other people readings and read the explanation of the meanings of the cards the way they are laid out. It shows that even if you don't think that something in a reading pertains to you, that it could be something that you don't think about at that particular point in time but may be working in the background. Both of Josie's books are easy to understand and well written.
