I am currently working on a e-book project. I want to have this ebook out before Tarot; What the little white book won’t tell you. Hopefully before the end of the year. Tarot Now! is meant to be a beginners book, with simple to understand tarot knowledge. Tarot: WTLWBWT is looking to be more of an intermediate book and I would prefer to have a beginners book out before the more complex stuff.
Here is the introduction so far,
You want to learn tarot and you want to learn it fast. We live in an age where everything is just about as instant as it could be. From instant meals that are zapped in the microwave, to the high speeds of the Internet sending information, media and all sorts of fun stuff to us we have become used to a fast paced way of life. When we learn something we often want to learn it fast, skipping the long and tedious years of study and practice. We just want to download the info straight into our brains like in the Matrix. Whatever needed to be learned, from Karate to speaking a language they could download the info right into the brain for instant usage. Sadly we can’t do that (yet) thankfully for my sake or you would not have to read my book.
Tarot is an art that can take a long time to learn and fully understand. But you want to learn it fast; you got a busy life or you are like me and are a lazy reader when it comes to books. You don’t want page after page of highly arcane and occult babble. You want no nonsense tarot, tarot for the regular person. You want it fast and quick. Well you got it! “Tarot Now! Understanding the tarot for people with little patience” is for you. In this book I will bring tarot to you in a simple and easier fashion that will get you going on your path of enlightenment faster than Snookie running for a pickle!
Now before I lose your attention completely and you start to check your Facebook newsfeed lets get started.
Introduction to – Tarot Now! Understanding the tarot for people with little patience
The I.S.I.S method of reading three cards it one of the simplest and eye-opening ways to read the tarot. I.S.I.S stands for “Interactive Story Integrative Spread”.
The I.S.I.S method only uses three cards, that is what makes the reading so easy to do, you only need three cards. One challenge for me was becoming overwhelmed by spread with many cards. I like to keep things simple as much as possible without sacrificing quality. The I.S.I.S method does not include positional meanings. There is no “past, present, future” or “problem, advice, outcome” for the cards. They are free form, your intuition must guide you in the reading. You are telling a story. My I.S.I.S method is inspired by Robert M. Place’s method of reading the three cards as a story. When I heard Robert talk about his method on the Tarot Connection and did it I loved it. It has been my go to method of reading the cards and always provide interesting and insightful readings.
In my upcoming book Tarot : what the little white book won’t tell you I teach the I.S.I.S method and provide a few practice readings for you to interpret.
Lets do an example of the I.S.I.S method.
Maria comes to you for a reading, she and her boyfriend have been having issues. She says something is not right in the relationship and wants a reading to figure out what. You pull three cards.
Queen of Swords, 10 of Wands and 8 of Cups (You can pull these cards out of your own deck if you want). What story do you see?
Courts – People in the situation, actions and attitudes
Body Language – What do the position or direction of the bodies in the cards say?
Challenges – Which cards pose a challenge or block.
Now integrate and interact, what story are the cards telling you? Look at the cards as one big card.
