Physical book. Anthony Lewis is boring. He was boring with Tarot: Beyond the Basics. I should know better. I didn’t. 2 stars
I have this as a physical book. Mary K. Greer is the best author on tarot, ranking right up there with Theresa Reid. This workbook is detailed (if repetitive). I used a separate notebook for most of it, but I never finished the book. 4 stars
ZZZZ So dense. I tried to read four of his books, but it was like plowing through the Canterbury Tales in Old English. Golden Dawn, Tree of Life, Garden of Pomegranates, and Middle Pillar. They were physical books, which makes it even worse. Two stars for all of them.
For such a small book, it’s jam packed with information that is necessary for you to decide whether or not you really want in on the Golden Dawn. After reading this, I found that maybe, just maybe, ceremonial “high” magic isn’t right for me. I’ve read four books on high magic, and all of them… Continue reading The Essential Golden Dawn
by Sasha Graham. I wrote my review of this book in Goodreads before reading the other reviews. I gave it 4 stars and did not finish it because the last third was card meanings. I also found myself skimming through the first half of the book. It was so choppy, meant for someone to work… Continue reading The Magic of Tarot
by Benebell Wen. When I first saw this book, I was like, “$21.00 for the Kindle edition? Screw that.” Little did I know that the entire book is over 800 pages! I bought the physical copy and was indeed surprised at the size of it. The size didn’t scare me. I read through the first… Continue reading Holistic Tarot Review (part 1)
Some books were 50% off, so, of course, I jumped at the chance to get them. I compared them to the Kindle books, and purchased the physical books if they were cheaper. Crystal Talismans which consisted of four crystals for Love, Success, Fortune or Well-being. I chose Fortune. Adventurine, Hemataite, White Moonstone and Clear Quartz… Continue reading Llewellyn Sale!
Read so far a book on Dreams, which was worthless. Just finished Complete Book of Divination, which is a really good overview of different kinds of divination, from Augury to Tarot. Four stars on Goodreads. Complete Book of Ceremonial Magick is next in the pile.
Just got a new deck (a mini deck) called Tarot of Pagan Cats. I love cats. I’m marginally pagan, and I love almost anything Lo Scarabeo does. This has all three things. Also picked up a general astrology book. My Parker’s Astrology is getting a little beat up. This one is published by Llewellyn, so… Continue reading Pagan Cats and Astrology and The Golden Dawn, oh my
The great thing about Llewellyn is that they publish so much in the magickal realm that it’s easy to get lost among the really good books and the crappy books. I went on a buying spree and bought a bunch of Llewellyn’s complete book of ____ series. The first one I perused is about dreaming.… Continue reading Llewellyn books
