I’m new to tarot. Are there any books or resources that you would recommend?
The following books were my most trusted and relied-upon resources in learning about tarot.
- Holistic Tarot: An Integrative Approach to Using Tarot for Personal Growth by Benebell WenA well-researched and extremely comprehensive book that not only covers the usual tarot basics (card meanings, spreads) from many different angles and in great depth, but also discusses tarot history, ethics, and business concerns, among other topics.
- Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom: A Book of Tarot by Rachel PollackA detailed introduction to tarot structure and card meanings from one of the most referenced and respected tarot authors and teachers. Pollack’s book Tarot Wisdom is also a great resource, particularly for comparing cards from different decks to the Rider-Waite-Smith versions.
- Tarot for Your Self: A Workbook for Personal Transformation by Mary K. GreerThe most detailed and inspiring book about tarot spreads that I’ve come across, from another highly-regarded tarot scholar. This book is full of creative ideas for getting the most out of your tarot deck.
- Tarot and Psychology: Spectrums of Possibility by Arthur Rosengarten, Ph.D.I found this book thanks to Benebell Wen’s Holistic Tarot, and it is a fascinating read for anyone who wants to look at tarot through a psychological lens. Rosengarten’s therapeutic case studies would likely be relevant to anyone who reads tarot for others, even those without a background in mental health.
- Queering the Tarot by Cassandra SnowSo much of tarot is about rethinking old traditions to better suit who we are today. Queering the Tarot is a great resource for making tarot inclusive of and relevant to everyone.
