These are the top 3 books I recommend time and time again to New & Experienced Tarot Readers.
#1 Madame Pamita's Magical Tarot
I've been reading tarot for over 27 years, and there are a LOT of books out there. What ever deck you choose, be sure to get one that comes with a big book so you can learn the in's and out's of that particular deck. BUT in addition to that book, I recommend Madame Pamita's Magical Tarot for both new and experienced tarot readers.
The focus of this book is teaching you how to use tarot in your everyday witchcraft or spells, which makes it amazing for experienced readers. However, there are so many small digestible hints about each card, that I find it a very good resource for beginners. Lots of little extras about each card in this book.
Ethics in Energy Medicine by Heidi Light
Ethics in Energy Medicine by Heidi Light is on the required reading list for anyone who takes a class or course with me in learning to read tarot (The Intuitive Tarot Program), or in learning how to grow a tarot business (Tarot Marketing Mastery.)
It's not a very big book but it is packed with some important information that I feel is not addressed enough in most energy work modalities, and in psychic or tarot businesses.
Before you start to worry about marketing, your Instagram account and doing reels, or how you are going to reach more tarot or reiki clients, get this book into your hands.
There are really important lessons on paying attention and staying conscious of using ethics in energy work or metaphysical work for money.
The Seat of the Soul by Gary Zukav
Although I first read this book as a recommendation for spiritual self help, what has happened through the years is seeing it become the baseline for all the councelling, talk therapy, or guidance that comes with reading tarot or giving energy readings.
I find a copy of this just about any time I hit a thrift store, but you can buy a newer version on Amazon with chapter notes and follow along questions.
There are parts of it that are a little dated, and at times the author talks about God (I generally changed the word to "The Universe" or "Source" so I could get the message without my past hang ups around the word God. It worked.) but there is some highly recommended info in The Seat of the Soul that can help you round out your readings and respectfully add the element of coaching to your readings.
These are the books I end up recommending the most to folks who are readers and come to me for classes or programs. Find these, and other books, tarot decks, and products I use and recommend here: The Little Witch Recommends
