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.

It is estimated that 4-8 million people in the United States suffer
with Fibromyalgia
. Another one million also have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Some statistics state that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia
may directly affect 5% of the world's population.

I am one of the individuals in this growing epidemic. In 1997, after a
chaotic year of intense medical and psychological testing, I was diagnosed
with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. I spent much
of the last ten years in deep denial feeling alone, confused, frustrated,
and angry. It has taken me a great deal of soul searching, but I believe
that today I am a better, more centered person because of my experiences.

I've never been someone who dictates advice, so my book provides worksheets you can develop
to tailor your personal responses to symptoms and crises. It is the good, the bad, and the ugly
of my personal journey that I share with you, my fellow Fibromites. My hope is simple, that you
will find solace and renewed hope in my words.
