Learning From the Books
How many tarot books do you all own. I am looking through tarot books right now. It made me think on how many books on tarot. That you people own or bought while you were learning the tarot.

I've read : Tarot for a New Generation by Janina Renee; Nancy Shavick's Tarot Universe; Tarot for beginners by Joan Bunning and I can tell you as a complete beginner at Tarot, the books just stunt me . Now I've put away the books and trying to learn again.
If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light. Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness, and fears.

then there's the book and deck sets which i don't want to count tonight. i included books that i bought seperately from the decks.
i'm convinced that the negative has power and if you allow it to perch in your house, in your mind, in your life, it can take you over. those negative woreds climb into the furniture and the next thing you know they are on your skin. a negative statement is like poison. maya angelou

Wow... do I feel like the poor deprived stepchild... I only own three Tarot books... boo hoo... I have;
"A complete Guide to the Tarot" by Eden Gray
"The Mystical Tarot" by Rosemary Ellen Guiley
"Seventy-eight Degrees of Wisdom" by Rachel Pollack
I'm hoping that Santa Clause will bring me "Tarot Reversals" this Christmas...

OK, the books I have are:
Tarot Spells - Janina Renee
Mastering the Tarot - Eden Gray
How to Use Tarot Spreads - Sylvia Abraham
78 Degrees of Wisdom - Rachel Pollack
Tarot in Ten Minutes - R. T. Kaser
The Heart of the Tarot - Thomson, Mueller, Echols (this is a book about a 2 card layout, there's a different book with a very similar title)
I don't think I "need" any more books, but wanting more is a different matter entirely! LOL Lately, though, I've been referring more to my personal notebook instead of the books.

Tarot books I have are:
Crowley: The Book of Thoth
--- Perhaps the best of the older occult classics
Huson: The Devil's Picturebook
--- Implausible paganizing fluff
Butler: Dictionary of the Tarot
--- Collects meanings from many sources, and describes the older traditional and esoteric decks. Flawed but useful.
Reed: The Witches' Tarot
--- A deck book acquired w/o the deck
Knight: The Magical World of the Tarot and The Treasure House of Images
--- Two of my favourites. Strongly based in magickal techniques and visualisation. Magical World is the book I would recommend to beginners.
Kaplan: Tarot Classic
--- Has a nice discussion of Tarot history. An average keyword collection, useful for those who use Marseilles styles.
Pollack: 78 Degrees of Wisdom
--- The best reference I've seen about the Rider Waite Smith style decks; if you use one you should get this.
Louis: Tarot Plain and Simple
--- A Roget's Thesaurus of keywords. Could use more actual text.
Anonymous (Valentin Tomberg): Meditations on the Tarot
--- Meandering meditations, from a Roman Catholic, western-mysteries perspective on the Tarot of Marseilles.
Decker/DePaulis/Dummett: A Wicked Pack of Cards
--- A helpful antidote to some of the stuff you find in the other books.

A Complete Guide to The Tarot - Eden Gray - Too pat and basic
78 Degrees of Wisdom - Rachel Pollack - Excellent
Choice Centered Tarot - Gail Fairfield - Different yet good
Tarot Reversals - Mary Greer - Excellent
The Forest of Souls - Rachel Pollack - Confusing
Tarot and the Tree Of Life - Isabel Kliegman - Confusing
I'm not sure what I think of the last two books. I think I need to read them both again. Either the Forest of Souls is to "out there" or I'm not ready for it. Tarot and the Tree of Life didn't really explain Kabala to me the way I wanted it to. I also didn't care for her writing style; but that's me.
What need have I of this, what need have I of that! I am dancing at the feet of my dog, all is bliss, all is bliss!
Truth is in the eye of the beholder.
