Amythyst Raine is a professional psychic, real-life witch, and spiritual feminist. She has practiced her own brand of paganism for the past 30 years and is the high priestess of Bristolwicks Coven. Amythyst is also a practitioner of holistic healing through reiki, crystal therapy, and chakra balancing. She lives in Nebraska.
Tarot for Grownups is an often bawdy and brutally honest tour through the intricate landscape of tarot card reading. Filled with witty thoughts and blunt appraisals, author Amythyst Raine shares her very personal relationship with the cards. Not one to stay on any traditional path, Raine is in the trenches, teaching you to really see the cards as an experience on the whole, not as a grueling memorization project you will get frustrated with and drop at the next opportunity. No, instead, Raine explains how she learned to view the cards and wastes no time doing it. Her descriptions of the cards and their relationships to one another and the querent are spicy and full of intelligence. This is definitely a book for adults; make no mistake, but an excellent way to gain a different perspective on tarot and the puzzle pieces that make up this art. -- Dana Wright
