Tarot Unlocking the Arcana
By Angelo Nasios
I was so excited to open the package from Schiffer when it arrived. The first thing to get my attention was the book was a hardcover. The cover design artwork is just beautiful. The chapter’s titles certainly seemed to cover everything that expected.
I love this book. It is comprehensive and anyone at any point of their journey in tarot would appreciate this book. One of the best features is that it has everything here in one book that is needed to get a solid start.
One of the things that I found frustrating when I began I had resources in multiple places all having good pertinent information. Angelo Nasios has put it all into one book. I have mine marked all up with colored pencils to draw special attention to the elements, suites, and specific information that link them all together.
The author covers in depth the elements, astrology, numerology, seasons, and the directional meaning just to scratch the surface. He also goes into the detail of the history of the tarot. The book has many interesting card spreads that are new to me that I found to be very helpful. Lastly, the thing that I found the cherry on top of the sundae of this book is it is priced affordable so that anyone who wants to learn the tarot can do so. My back pages are filled with notes, I have pages marked, underlined and the sides tabbed so I can easily find things I want in a pinch.
I meet people all the time to ask for what deck or books to start with. To be sure this is the book that I will be recommending and definitely gifting to those beginning their tarot journey in the future. I cannot say enough about this book.
