Tarot consists of 78 cards, and this book features Tarot illustrations, reproduced in black and white, by artist Martin Conway. There is much mystique connected to the Tarot cards. Some authorities put the origin of Tarot as far back as ancient Egypt, and others theorise it dates to Egyptian hieroglyphics. Soraya gives guidance on choosing Tarot cards for personal use, and how to treat the cards with respect. She explains how to prepare oneself for a reading, and for using them, and she explains on how to use the cards, and to prepare your chakras (power points within the body). Soraya gives a detailed and comprehensive explanation of the Tarot cards, and explains how to interpret them. Every card in the deck has a helpful guide to its interpretation, and there is an invaluable explanation of the significance of each card in every position of the Horoscope spread, one of Soraya s favourite Tarot card spreads.
