“Bringing the Tarot to Life: Embody the Cards Through Creative Exploration” by Scott Martin

 Up until about the 70% mark the pictures included were minimum. The illustrations of the cards and explanations of the major and minor arcana included thereon were exquisite.

The meat and potatoes of the book so-to-speak were that of a theater taught man using those playful character acting and psychology methods to bring the tarot to life. I liked that the reader was made to question and think about the cards. To assign them traits, personalities, heck even jobs! The activities included were very outside of the box and wonderous.

I could see purchasing this one for a friend who is either beginning in tarot reading to help cement the cards or a highly experienced reader to help them to re-attune with their deck.

I still felt like while all of these beautiful positives were there, I wasn’t grabbed into it and as interested as I thought I would be. I shrug. I like the tarot and had taken a class in it…but something was missing here.

If you are either a beginner or very advanced, you will probably be into this.

Maybe for those of us in the middle, it may be found wanting.
