You dont need a special gift to read Tarot, Ellershaw insists. To prove it, she condenses 30 years experience into a straightforward, easy-to-use guide for beginners. She introduces the characteristics of each card, how they interrelate in a variety of spreads, and card combinations that commonly indicate specific events. The 240-page book also offers sample readings, ethical guidelines, and tips for keeping a Tarot diary. This boxed kit also includes The Gilded Tarot, a beautiful deck by Ciro Marchetti, and a layout sheet.
