• Explores the living wisdom of the Tarot, based on the author’s more than 40 years’ experience as a professional Tarot reader
• Shares stories from the author’s client readings to show how each card tells a story and how it only takes a small amount of familiarity to decipher a world full of meaning in the cards

As Julia Gordon-Bramer reveals in profound detail, the miracle of Tarot is how the right cards show up, time and time again, to provide guidance or symbolically illustrate your story—whether you believe in the Tarot or not.
In these real-life tales of Tarot wisdom, Gordon-Bramer explores the modern applications and the living wisdom of the Tarot, based on her more than 40 years’ experience as a professional Tarot reader. Sharing stories from client readings and her own spiritual journey, she shows how to intuitively, logically, and sometimes playfully glean the meaning of each card that appears and integrate its powerful spiritual lessons for deeper understanding, guidance, and personal healing. She compares reading the Tarot to dream analysis, explaining how the Major Arcana, such as The Fool, The Magician, The Lovers, or The Star, represent the key players and milestones in life, the sacred adventure from birth to death. She explains how each card tells its own story, often revealing subconscious beliefs and motivations through its colors, numbers, symbols, and pictures, yet she also reveals how it only takes a small amount of familiarity to decipher a world full of meaning in the cards.
Allowing you to make the leap from an abstract understanding of the Tarot to actually working intuitively with the cards, this book shows how, when used as a life-transforming tool to awaken and tame the subconscious, the Tarot offers a way to grow your strengths, identify your weaknesses, and conquer problems as you journey through life.
