21 Ways To Read A Tarot Card
by Mary K. Greer
Drawing on nearly forty years of tarot experience, Mary K. Greer has developed a new energizing approach-made up of twenty-one stimulating techniques-to interpret or deepen your understanding of each card.
Just as the twenty-one letters of the alphabet can be combined to form billions of words, Greer’s twenty-one methods can be used in any combination for gaining amazing new insights and perspectives.
Emphasizing both traditional and personal methods of interpretation, Greer’s techniques involve storytelling, sketching, symbols, metaphors, dialogues, acting, and other imaginative exercises.
Designed to bring about interaction, transformation, and empowerment, this twenty-one-pronged approach to tarot can help readers expand standard interpretations and evolve new ways of connecting to the cards.
