  1. Unique Tarot Spreads To Unveil Deeper Meaning In The Cards In Tarot Prediction & Divination, Susyn Blair-Hunt presents a series of uniquely designed Tarot card spreads to help achieve a deeper meaning in Tarot readings. With so many Tarot books already in existence and more being released every year, authors are looking to present materials beyond the basic card meanings and standard Celtic Cross spread. Ms. Blair-Hunt suggests that a comprehensive Tarot reading transcends standard divinatory meaning or fortune-telling. By taking a closer look at the cards, she demonstrates how both therapeutic and spiritual messages can be deciphered from the cards.Although she does provide some basic card explanations including keywords and a brief overview of the Tarot, this book is better-suited for someone already familiar with the card meanings and standard spreads. The majority of the book is divided into three sections of Tarot spreads: those better-suited for beginners, intermediate readings, and advanced spreads. In the section for beginners, Ms. Blair-Hunt provides unique spreads for yes-or-no questions, daily advice, getting to the root of someone else’s motivations, and an annual forecast reading to look at the upcoming year. Most of the beginner’s spreads use anywhere from five to ten cards and are centered around basic questions.In the section of intermediate readings, more cards are used to answer complex questions or a series of questions. Of particular interest are the spreads for reading the two parties in a relationship, weighing options through decision trees, and the crossroads reading, a spread of 12 cards that examines two different pathways toward an end-goal.The most complex and unique readings appear in the section of advanced spreads. In the gypsy’s mirror reading, Tarot almost becomes a fun game as the querent intuitively selects 16 cards and strategically places them in the spread for answers in a general reading. Ms. Blair-Hunt also offers spreads for interpreting dreams, understanding chakra imbalances and health issues, and exploring past lives to understand relationships and karmic causes in this current life. One of the most fascinating spreads is the channeling chalice where cards are laid out to make contact with spiritual entities or guides.The main criticism for Tarot Prediction & Divination is that Ms. Blair-Hunt suggests that for certain readings, it may be appropriate to remove cards from the deck that could be interpreted by the querent as negative or upsetting. If Tarot is to be taken seriously, one must understand that life brings both positive and negative situations. To avoid the negative is to do the querent a disservice. Ms. Blair-Hunt is mistaken when claiming that removing certain cards from the deck does not limit the effectiveness of a reading.The appendices are especially helpful and include approximately 50 pages of Tarot keywords, suggestions for choosing representative significator cards, and using the cards to understand timing. The most important appendix demonstrates the meaning of card combinations for relationships, health issues, and other life situations. This book is a solid addition to any Tarot library.

  2. Excellent Tarot Book This is a “must have” for your tarot library. I really like the concept of looking at a reading using the three layers outlined in the book. These layers are Divinatory, Therapeutic, and Spiritual. From the book, “Each card contains three very different messages for us to consider.” The author does a very thorough job of explaining and teaching this idea. The book is divided into sections for beginner, imtermediate, and advanced readings so you can jump into the section that best suits your level of experience. There are sample readings to go along with the spreads which were helpful for me in understanding how to read the three different levels for the cards/positions. I use this book so much that I took it to FedEx to have it spiral bound so it lays open and flat while studying. The first appendix in the back is a list of keywords that is helpful but not so much that it becomes the meat of the book. The book mainly concentrates on teaching the reader to find the three levels of meaning for each reading using the 45 sample readings as the main teaching tool. This is a book I refer to almost daily and has been invaluable in stepping up my tarot learning. There is a Yes or No reading on page 21 using 5 cards that has proven to me to be extremely accurate. I learned with this particular spread, to ask a very, very specific question. You will get the answer. I highly recommend adding this book to your tarot library.

  3. A Good Resource of Tarot Spreads As a fan of predictive style tarot reading, I was looking forward to receiving my copy of Tarot Prediction And Divination by Susyn Blair-Hunt. Although there are many tarot books on the market, finding a good one on “how to predict” is always a challenge. Most books tend to focus on explaining individual card meanings and the mechanics of tarot reading.Interpretation is an art form that requires a good grasp of intuition as well as experience. This is not easy to explain in a book – actually doing a reading seems to be the only way to get a handle on the prediction part.The author attempts to bridge the gap with this book and although she presents some very good exercises, I think that the title was somewhat misleading as this book seemed to be more or less another book of “tarot spreads” rather than a “how to predict” book. Now, that is not meant to be a harsh criticism – the spreads here will help to access your intuition. I guess I expected this book to really lay out how to divine the future from the title alone.The book begins by explaining the three different types of readings: divinatory, therapeutic and spiritual. (I did like to see that the author does not shy away from the word “fortune telling”.) She also covers free will and fate, looking at the visual cues in the deck, preparing your deck, and accuracy. This introduction is well written and gives a good, basic introduction to tarot.She also explains how to read for each different astrology sign (ex: use keyword “I feel” for water signs, “I think” for air signs, etc.) which some readers may find helpful. One odd thing though that I didn’t agree with: she suggests taking negative cards out of the deck when predicting pregnancy or health situations. I had to disagree with that as my belief is that life has struggles and we can’t just deliver only rosy messages to a client. It’s irresponsible and leads to a less accurate reading. For example, a negative reading on health can bring the client awareness and give them the tools to seek the proper help. Sometimes a “warning” in a reading can be preventative if the information is delivered properly. While the author does not discourage readers from doing readings on negative situations, I felt that this suggestion to remove cards was questionable. (That being said, removing negative cards when reading for a child would be a situation that makes total sense.)The rest of the book is laid out in three sections of tarot spreads: beginner, intermediate and advanced. The spreads are unique and I found a few gems in here that I really liked. The “Yes or No Reading” is a great one for those quick readings where the client is seeking a simple answer – but it also lends to more depth if desired. Other spreads I liked: The Illuminating Star, The Reasons Reading, The Veil/Truth, and Past Life Spread. I also found the “Channeling/Chalice Reading” to be an especially good spread for talking with loved ones who have passed over to the other side. I have been using that layout with great success.The author uses example spreads throughout the book which really helps to show how the spreads work. This is a big help and allowed me to learn the layouts quickly. One bummer – the images of the cards in the book are so tiny, I could not see them well. If you do not have the decks she uses in the book, you are going to be out of luck trying to follow along.The appendix section in the back is rock solid and chock full of additional information that will be valuable to any reader. Blair-Hunt covers keywords, significators, card combinations, and timing. Her insights are imaginative and novel. I was nodding my head as I could see exactly where she got her ideas. In my opinion, this section alone is priceless and makes the flaws in the book less important.I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more spreads and/or is looking for another good tarot reference.
