Learning Tarot Reversals (New)
by Bunning, Joan
Publisher: Red Wheel/Weiser
Book ID: 9781578632718, 1578632714
Generally, about half the cards in any tarot spread -- or at least a good portion of them -- will show up reversed, upside down. Yet so many tarot books treat reversed cards in a cursory manner. With Learning Tarot Reversals, Joan Bunning, author of the best-selling Learning the Tarot, has written one of the first comprehensive books dealing with this topsy-turvy subject. Traditionally, reversed card meanings are limited to the polar opposite of the most literal upright interpretations. But this provides only a small part of the overall picture. Reversed cards may also indicate a build up, lack of, or decline in the energy or event depicted by the card. Looking at the effect of reversed cards -- their number, position in a spread, groupings, and how they are situated in proximity to upright or other reversed cards -- brings subtle nuances to light and new depth to any reading.
Following the format of Learning the Tarot, Bunning presents lessons that build on each other smoothly, allowing a student to progress to increasingly complex readings and understanding with ease. She then describes in detail the reversed meaning for every card in the tarot along with a brief description of the upright meaning. With handy charts, useful exercises, and illustrations from the ubiquitous Waite deck, this book is sure to become a treasured reference work for anyone working with the tarot.

The Sworn Book of Honorius: Liber Iuratus Honorii
