Learn to read Tarot in days rather than months.

No need to memorise complicated card meanings. The best system for the working reader as well as the mystery performer who wants to add a fascinating extra skill much in demand by audiences everywhere.

You don't need to be a full-time reader to benefit from this package. If you use tarot cards in your performance, at some time someone is going to ask you for a reading.

Read this book with cards in hand. Try a few simple three-card readings with friends and in a few days you'll be ready to give an assured, entertaining reading whenever asked.

Hobrin's classic book, which we first published in 1990, has been comprehensively updated and augmented with new material, together with a DVD-Rom containg useful tarot artwork and nearly 50 valuable tarot eBooks in PDF format, many of them very rare. They include books by A E Waite, Éliphas Lévi, Papus, S L MacGregor Mathers, A E Thierens, Mrs John King Van Rensselaer, Paul Foster Case , P D Ouspensky, Julia Orsini, Etteilla, Frater Achad, C C Zain... and more.

PLUS While stocks last we're including an additional DVD-Rom with artwork from 200+ decks from around the world, spanning approximately 600 years -- from classic to new age. These magnificent illustrations are both an inspiration and a useful guide if you are considering buying a new, specialised tarot deck or seeking or researching that rare classic tarot.

If you would prefer to have the eBooks and artwork on a USB Flash Drive instead of a disk then this is available to select above.

This really is a complete package that will allow you to give fun readings for your friends, add brief tarot readings to your mystery performances, or offer commercial tarot readings. As Hobrin says in his Introduction, "There is only one requirement and that is that you possess a deck of Rider-Waite Tarot Cards." I prefer a fairly traditional 'Rider-Waite' but any tarot with illustrations based on Pamela Colman Smith's drawings is fine.


Foreword by Russell J Hall

Introduction: How to use the book to develop your readings in a straightforward, logical manner. The five following chapters cover in a comprehensive, easy-to-follow manner how to use the individual cards and their images to inspire your readings. Each card has its own page on which it is illustrated, the image described, and accompanied by a sample reading. New to this edition: The traditional meaning of each card is also given. This can be both interesting and enlightening, particularly on illustrating the importance of an intuitive approach to readings prompted by the Snith-Waite imagery.

Chapter One: The Major Arcana Speaks
Chapter Two: The Suit of Wands
Chapter Three: The Suit of Cups
Chapter Four: The Suit of Swords
