Jeanne Fiorini asks a great question on her video “TarotWorks Tarot Tip #10”:

Do you use your tarot as you would the Emergency Room, or do you use your tarot the way you would the Health Food Store?

Think about this for a moment before you watch her video:

Jeanne is a tarot maven, with creations ranging from tarot wrapping paper to bags to books to instructional videos—all found at TarotWorks. In addition to her youtube videos you’ll find lots of helpful advice in her book Tarot Spreads and Layouts, especially as it relates to tarot for personal insight. In some ways, the title is a misnomer in that this short but pithy book contains far more in terms of sensible advice and good reading skills than you get in most other books. How often, as I read her text, I found myself thinking, “I wish I had said that!” To give myself credit, occasionally I have, as Jeanne is not reinventing the wheel but succinctly describing methods that take years to discover otherwise—in a no nonsense and elegantly easy-to-understand way. In a recent article in the American Tarot Association newsletter, Tarot Reflections, you can learn how Jeanne has integrated her studies of Psychosynthesis with her approach to Tarot.

The spreads and layouts comprise almost two-thirds of the book, and what is truly unique here isn’t just the layouts or the different number of cards or the range of issues (which we also get), but that we are given:

  • questions that will help us understand what a card means in a particular spread position,
  • things to consider about how the cards might relate to each other,
  • guidelines for expanding the layout,
  • helpful hints and reminders about intention, focus and attitude.
