Folk tales have brought us invaluable lessons on life for thousands of years. With The Tarot of Tales, veteran tarot reader and author Melinda Lee Holm and illustrator Rohan Daniel Eason invite you into their magickal world of art and prose where your readings become personalized fairy tales told by the cards in narrative form. The meaning of each card is told in five different ways—one for each of five possible positions given in the accompanying full-color guidebook. Lay out the cards, find the corresponding passage for each card and position, and link them together to read the tale told to you by the Tarot. Presented in their own compact box for easy storage, the 78 cards provide richly detailed illustrated scenes that allow you to step inside your own personal storybook, one that changes to bring you the wisdom you need when you need it.
Within these pages you will find all you need to know to help you live your best magickal life, even if you are a complete novice in the metaphysical arts.

She gives you the basics of magick, simple Tarot spreads that anyone can master and learn from, rituals to follow for each full and new moon, and a guide to key astrological dates, including the sun’s and moon’s transits through the signs, moon cycles, the solstices and equinoxes, and other major astrological events. You’ll also learn how to personalize your rituals for your specific needs and discover tips on integrating magickal intention into everyday life through food, personal care, and more.
