    Bakara is a fucking delight This book really breaks down tarot in a relatable often funny and easily digestible form For the millennial witch tarot beginnger advanced reader feminist pop culture fanatic or anybody looking to learn about the occult from a new voice this book is perfection

    I feel like I'm the only one who can't uite jump on the hype this book is receiving? While I loved Bakara's honest and straight forward language and personal stories related to the cards I find her interpretations very black and white The cards are portrayed as either good or bad and I simply disagree with this outdated ideology that is often a product of pop culture painting Tarot as nothing than a party trick or a fortune telling resource I genuinely expected this book to have depth and to honor Tarot as a whole; as a multidimensional tool that helps us connect with ourselves first and all that is second Many of the card explanations were pure projections on the outside world most obvious examples being found in the entire Court Cards section of the book but props for choosing the family language versus the hierarchy one I loved that So this was my biggest problem with the otherwise witty and beautifully personal book failing to highlight the sacred medicine of the cards and focusing on the either or view of Tarot But in all fairness the book was true to its marketing a uick Tarot guide for millennial beginners who love a good hype wild child stories and sharp language

    I’ve got a number of books on tarot and this one is very unlike any of them It’s a pretty basic book brief intro meanings of all the cards a couple of sample spreads and that’s it other than a few pages at the end on chakras and crystals etc What makes it different are a couple of things she’s removed the formal language that most tarot books are written with and she illustrates the meaning of many of the cards using events from her own life This humanized the descriptions and made many of them easier to understand This is not to say that she thinks the cards are just psychological archetypes or prompts; she is firmly on the side of them being magic The minor arcana gets pretty short shrift a lot of the time but the majors are very well done The title should give you a clue that there will be a lot of cusswords inside so if you are offended by the F word don’t buy this book Four stars

    4 starsI received this book as a gift from my friend Anatha and it was kind of uncanny because I swear this book was already on my radar from thinking about getting into tarot she read my mind ; that's a bad tarot jokeAnyway I was glad she did think of me because I'd be considering trying out tarot reading for a while now ever since I started doing Susannah Conway's Unravel Your Year workbook and the whole Word of the Year thing She's a big proponent of using tarot as a mindfulness practice I feel like this is always going to be my feeling about it and I'm never going to get into the woo woo magic aspect of it because I'm just too much of a skeptic though 10 year old Harry Potter loving me would have loved for magic to be real sigh So particularly towards the end of this book where the author starts talking about chakras and crystals and the VERY PROBLEMATIC space clearing aka sage burning I don't think I even need to get into this but like I said I'm interested in tarot for self reflection not pretending to be tapped into the mystic traditions of culture I do not belong to Ahem idk fam I kinda checked out But I liked the 130 or so pages beforehand and found Wintner's explanations of the cards very straightforward and approachable I appreciated the personal anecdotes that brought the card meanings to life even if I found myself getting a bit exasperated with Wintner's personality by the end of the book I 100% could not be friends with the author bless her heart I don't know that I'll ever do readings for anyone else but am excited to get started using the cards to continue working on myself as I have been through journaling and other forms of self reflection okay mostly journaling I try meditating but I'm not consistent Wish me luck So yeah if you can withstand the unbearable and often defensive whiteness of the author this is a pretty good read at least from the perspective of a beginner like me who has zero previous experience with the tarot beyond what I know from pop culture and the immensely enjoyable Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater 3

    Finally a tarot book that cuts out the crap and gives it to you straight WTF is Tarot is a modest 150 page book also it is bound so that it stays open hands free on your table so you can eat burgers while reading Why aren't all books bound this way? that assures you that the tarot is intuitive accessible and yours She peppers in personal anecdotes about her life alongside each major arcana card and it made me trust her to know what she has been through in her life thus far and how the cards have been an integral medium for her own navigation I loved her section on the court cards which are the most elusive and personified of the cards to meI can't say this book is perfect there are AAVE phrases here and there and than once does she reference being called out for cultural appropriation without lending understanding to those who do so It's your pretty run of the mill usage of this but I couldn't write this without bringing it up

    Feels like it's written for the Urban Outfitters crowd magic for hip young ladies nothing wrong with magic for hip young ladies of course Some great insights though and even if I don't love the exceeeeeedingly approachable relatable tone I am also perfectly happy that someone's making tarot approachable and relatable for all the ladies

    In a market saturated with entry level tarot guidebooks Wintner takes the cake Her intimate understanding of the tarot is evident in the archetypes and anecdotes she uses to explain contextualize and breathe new life into the cards As someone who has been reading tarot for almost six years this book invited me to deepen my relationship with the cards in unexpected ways and moved me to tears a couple of times I highly recommend this book for novices and skilled readers alike

    Kind of torn between 3 and 4 stars Some of this was lovely but some parts were a bit weird like a card being peak Fuck Boy energy I'm also pretty sure beginners books shouldn't recommend the use of white sage as it is already on the verge of going extinct It's a bit disappointing that the book doesn't address these issues or just recommends any other herb for cleansing like rosemary and I have a sneaking suspicion that Wintner sells white sage in her shop herself
