The True Nature of TarotReleased this year in an updated 10th anniversary edition, The True Nature of Tarot by Diane Wing is an exploration of a beloved system of divination that continues to increase in popularity and widespread use. Prefaced by eight chapters filled with guidance and approaches for beginners and seasoned tarot readers alike, at the heart of the book is an index of interpretations for each card and a compendium of card combinations with possible meanings. Chock full of helpful information and insight, The True Nature of Tarot is a valuable guide for both professional tarot readers and seekers.

An understanding of tarot as “a dynamic tool that reflects where we are on the path,” Wing notes in the book, aids us through life as we grow and seek deeper wisdom. A tool for reflection, tarot offers a method for us to connect with the divine and the truth within, to understand ourselves on deeper levels so that, ultimately, we can discover our own answers. “The ultimate goal,” Wing writes, “is self-mastery, where you do not need to consult those external to you; you’ll be able to tap into your own intuition and your own sovereign judgment. When you master yourself, you master your destiny. It will no longer be a question of prophecy, but rather creative direction.” And part of the value of tarot is as a tool that can help us to achieve self-mastery. It is a tool for spiritual growth and development, something that can guide us on our path to self-sovereignty.

Spreads, approaches to reading and interpreting cards, detecting patterns in readings, and guidance on choosing a practitioner are some of the book’s highlights. Of exceptional value is the guidance on tuning into the intuition, psychic development, and preparation techniques such as grounding. The True Nature of Tarot is packed with useful information that evidences the author’s deep understanding of tarot derived from a decades-long practice. This is a book that belongs on any reader’s or seeker’s shelf.

Product Details

  • Only 1% of the world's assets are held in the name of women.
  • 70% of people in abject poverty--living on less than $1 per day--are women.
  • Over half the women of this generation do not themselves receive, from either
    employment or the state, enough to 'get by'.

These shocking statistics call to our attention the importance of
financial independence among women. Financial dependence, though, is
just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Dependence can also be noted in
Validation and Self Esteem; Mobility and Daily Care; and Emotional
and A Shield from the World. Loving, caring, and well meaning
spouses, families, and caregivers can unwittingly gnaw away at self
confidence and self esteem until a person is unwittingly trapped in an
unhealthy situation.

Are you at risk?

  • Would you be financially secure without your spouse's income?
  • Do you find? it hard to say "no"?
  • Do you feel unlovable or ugly?
  • Have you given up on your dreams?
  • Are you truly unhappy with your life?

If so, there is hope! It is possible to regain
your self esteem, rebuild your self confidence,
and become independent once

Independence is a skill, an attitude, and a lifestyle that anyone
can achieve.

Praise for Tami Brady:

"The main point I saw in this work, and one I thought was outstanding,
is that we are all individuals, unique and that one set formula may not
work for everyone. I believe that is what makes her work different than
other self-help books." -Shirley Johnson, Midwest Book Review

"I found myself submersed in this book, discovering it a true source of encouragement, that however overwhelming life becomes, we should stay aware of what we want, never forgetting where we come from or what our dreams are."
-Tracy Jane-Newton, An Alternative View

"If you have been thinking there must be more to life than what you have; or you find you tend to say one thing in public, whilst being of an-other opinion in private, then this book may be for you."
-Sue Phillips, Spiralthreads Reviews
