Learning the Tarot


Learning the Tarot, Joan Bunning offers a complete course in 19 lessons that covers the basics and then gradually goes into more advanced concepts.

First published in 1998, Joan Bunning’s Learning the Tarot has become a classic. Written in a confident and natural style, the book communicates each card’s essential depth and beauty and shows how the cards trigger psychological projection and enhance intuition.

Learning the Tarot is a thorough (but never overwhelming) invitation to beginners. The book focuses in detail on:

  • the actual process of discovering meaning in the cards
  • how to consider one card by itself, how to look for card pairs
  • how to create the “story” of a reading

The book includes a convenient reference section that contains two pages of information for each card, including a picture from the popular Waite-Smith deck, a description, keywords, action phrases, and suggestions for cards with similar and opposite meanings.

“My goal with this book was to give you the basics to begin working with the Tarot independently. I try to make this inner process understandable by breaking it up into a simple series of steps while still doing justice to the depth and beauty of the cards. I concentrate on the every day, showing how the Tarot makes real, practical sense in the modern world. The Tarot is a living system that adapts creatively to each user. Rather than rules, I offer guidelines. While reading my book, I want you to feel that you have a teacher sitting next to you who introduces you to this special tool and encourages you to discover your unique approach to the cards.”
