My Thoughts
Tarot Diva is a book that you can judge from its cover. It gives tarot a young, hip, fresh take on a practice that has been done for hundreds of years (or more). This book made me want to pull out my angel and fairy oracle cards (similar to tarot cards) and start doing daily readings again. It also made me want to purchase a new set of regular tarot cards as well. I haven’t decided which one to get, but I have many wishlisted!

This book also gives great tips and information about each of the cards, as well as fun ways to relate it to fashion, food (even includes recipes), and much more. This is not your ordinary tarot book!

One of my favorite parts that is found throughout the book are beautiful quotes by inspirational people. They don’t all have to do with tarot (actually, most don’t) but they do relate to what the section in the book is about.

This book renewed my passion for tarot, gave me ideas on some artwork and actually had me captivated from the time I started it to the time I finished. If you are a tarot reader too, or perhaps are just interested in doing so (everyone can do it), this is a must-have book!

It is a great read. :)

Andhari - if you want to get started, it is quite easy. Even if just doing readings for yourself and family/friends.
