    Astro-Tarot readings: Connect more deeply to tarot but it’s unlikely you’ll become an astrology master with this book alone., October 4, 2011

    This review is from: Tarot and Astrology: Enhance Your Readings With the Wisdom of the Zodiac (Paperback)

    As a professional astrologer and tarot reader, I looked forward to getting this book. There’s a sprinkling of titles on how astrology connects to tarot but no one (to my knowledge) has attempted to teach tarot readers how to read their own chart by providing a great overview of astrology terms and concepts. Nor have they suggested that astrologers could learn tarot. In this way, Corrine Kenner is (yet again) ahead of the curve.

    Tarot and Astrology: Enhance Your Readings with the Wisdom of the Zodiac

    Although I learned the basics of astrology first, I took to tarot reading far faster and better. It wasn’t until Tr. Uranus Opposition Na. Uranus happened, which activated my third and ninth houses, that I learned astrology deeply and became a professional astrologer.

    Previous to becoming an astrologer, I used astrology briefly in my work and in connecting meaning to the tarot cards. I had known the signs and planets well enough to do so and I considered myself at the beginner’s level in astrology.

    This book will help you arrive at a level between beginner and intermediate astrological understanding. However, it does not teach you how to interpret a chart accurately or deeply. Though it will help you perform deeper tarot readings and give you a head-start in becoming an astrologer, who reads charts, if that’s what you want to accomplish.

    If you are new to tarot, remember not to take everything an author says as truth. A lot of what is said can be subjective, and the author’s personal preference that they do not disclose as such. My rule of thumb is to read at least three to five books on a subject (preferably from different time periods) to get a fuller understanding and more accurate connection to a subject.

    The book intersperses tarot card meanings and descriptions which include connecting the sign, planet, or combination of sign-planet ruling the card with astrological phenomena (titled Cosmic Connection) such as what eclipses and a void-of-course Moon are, and mostly new-to-me astrologically inspired tarot spreads. Although I have extensive astrological knowledge, I remained interested and enjoyed how succinctly and helpful things were explained that are normally difficult-to-understand for the lay-person.

    The astrological nor tarot information are complete. For example, the seventh house is also about ‘negative & positive projections’ (a very important and necessary thing to learn) but it’s not mentioned in the book. The 7th house (Libra as a mirror reflection) is what you see in others and the first is what others see in you, amongst other things. It also doesn’t include asteroids, such as Juno (co-rules Libra alongside Venus). With the tarot, it doesn’t go into the mechanics of tarot reading. This is only a problem if you expect that everything you’ll need to do tarot or astrology readings will be found in this one book.

    In Chapter Eleven, A<em> Simplified Guide to Chart Interpretation</em>, I wish Ms. Kenner would have called it <em>A Simplified Guide to Tarot-Astro Chart Interpretation</em>. The method described is a hybrid of tarot and astrology (as she noted in the introductory chapter). This is not purely astrology or purely tarot so be sure to understand this is a brand new method of working with tarot and astrology.

    Most seasoned astrologers would likely not want to work this method as they have enough to work with already to keep them busy and deep into the symbology and language of astrology. And I imagine they would think of this method as an unnecessary diversion and distraction.

    What I am interested in knowing is: Where did the author get her information from? While there were a few good books listed in the bibliography, it is lacking and doesn’t include classics that most astrologers would recommend. The information in the book is crisp but where did she learn it from? I would have liked to see some shout-out’s to other authors and teachers as this author is now established as an excellent tarot writer. I’ll list (on my website) some recommended serious yet accessible astrology books for those tarot readers who want to become genuine astrologers.

    Overall I was impressed and delighted with this book and Ms. Kenner’s creativity. Thank you!

    **Connect you more deeply to tarot**

    +This book will give you solid astrological information to help you connect more deeply with your tarot cards and therefore giving richer meaning to your tarot readings.

    + This book is a great overview of astrology and how it works.

    + Qabalistic reflections are offered as a bonus to the topic of mixing astrology with tarot.

    + The book cover is very lovely, the book itself nice to read. I can fold and curl over the pages and it doesn’t harm the spine.

    + Mostly new (to me) and worthy astrological tarot spreads!

    **It’s…

    This review is from: Tarot and Astrology: Enhance Your Readings With the Wisdom of the Zodiac (Paperback)

    Tarot and Astrology are two disciplines that are interconnected with each other. It is often said that Tarot is an art while Astrology is a science. Astrology is closely interwoven into the tarot cards, that many people would miss it if they did not look close enough. In “Tarot and Astrology: Enhance Your Readings with the Wisdom of the Zodiac” veteran tarot author Corrine Kenner brings out the Astrology in each of the cards to gain a deeper knowledge to why mean what they mean. Astrology can be a weak spot for many tarot readers; Corrine’s book is a excellent medium for tarot readers to get acquainted with the astrological associations in the tarot. Don’t forget this book is also good for Astrologers wanting to better understand tarot.

    Corrine uses Golden Dawn material as her source for her Astrological associates with the cards so this book can be used with just about any deck. The deck used in this book is the Wizards Tarot, which is a creation of Corrine.

    Like any good Tarot book Corrine starts you off with the basics to tarot. The Building Block of the Tarot, Corrine explains what the Major Arcana and Minor Arcana cards are all about. The Elements associated with the four suites and their spheres of influence. So it is safe to say a beginner to tarot can pick this book up and not feel lost. As you progress the Majors are explained via the Sign they are associated with them. The cards are listed in Astrological order. That means The Emperor the first card you will read about, not The Fool. I personally don’t like that it is not in Tarot order (Fool through The World) but this is a book that looks at tarot through Astrological eyes so I will let it slide.

    Corrine throws in Mythology into the mix as well. As I was reading about Justice Corrine associated Justice with Themis (goddess of justice), which is who I associate with this card as well. Many would associate Justice with Athena; the Mythic Tarot is a deck that does this. So Corrine has some good points with me on her Greek Mythology.

    Progressing me we come to the Minor Arcana to which now we see a section called “Tarot, Astrology, and Qabalah.” Now Corrine is adding Qabalah, I could kiss her! Corrine breaks down and explains how each of the minor cards fits into the Tree of Life. However the Qabalah aspect is not of major focus and plays only a secondary role after the Astrology.

    To illustrate how Astrology is used to understand the cards we will sample the Seven of Cups, Venus in Scorpio.

    “When Venus, the benefactor, visits the third and last decan of Scorpio, she offers a tantalizing array of possibilities, including beauty, power, wealth, and happiness…..Venus, like the Empress, wants to make dreams come true. She wants to give her children every chance at success…. But Venus is the planet of romantic illusion, and her promise can’t be fulfilled without effort and time…..The Golden Dawn designers of this card called Venus in Scorpio the “lord of Illusionary Success” because it hints at a tantalizing array of possibilities, but it doesn’t offer any guarantees if completion. “

    Informational charts are found throughout the book along with spreads. Corrine explains Astrology in depth more towards the end of the book, explain each of the houses, and end it all with Horoscope analysis via tarot.

    Overall this book is extremely well done! It has to be Corrine’s best work to date. Tarot and Astrology are two subjects that can fill a lifetime of study. This is not the end all on the subjects but this book is without a doubt a must have for every tarot reader and astrologer. The information in here is valuable, informative and highly useful. After reading this book tarot readers will have a better knowledge of astrology and will have improved their understanding of the cards greatly.
