From the man who brought you the Magician's Guide to Palm Reading, comes the Magician's Guide to the Tarot!

The Tarot has long fascinated both magicians and the general public. With its entrancing artwork and air of mystery, these cards are the perfect tool for magicians and mentalists. However many magicians and mentalists can find it difficult to incorporate the Tarot into their close-up sets. Learning what each card means and then delivering a 'reading' can seem a daunting task. With 78 cards in a full deck, many can be worried that it is impossible to remember what each card means. And when it comes to using the Tarot for 'tricks', their size and shape can often mean that even an experienced card magician can struggle to use them.

Both issues are addressed in this guide, the first of its kind for magicians in terms of both advice and practicality. Paul has used the Tarot as a tool for magical entertainment for the past decade, and his method of delivering quick entertaining readings is included within this manuscript. The problem of ethics and how to keep readings very firmly on the 'entertainment' side is also addressed and resolved. And finally Paul presents several ways of using the Tarot for tricks that are easy to do but also manage to keep the Tarot's integrity in place.

If you've ever wondered about the Tarot, perhaps thought it would be great to use a deck of these fascinating alternative to playing cards, but have up to now struggled to find a way of utilising them, then this guide is for you. Likewise, even if you are already comfortable using the Tarot, this guide offers invaluable ideas and insights from a professional entertainer who has used the Tarot 'in the field' for a decade.
The Tarot is ideal for providing displays of wonder and mystery – the essential ingredients of magic. This guide shows you how you too can provide that wonder and mystery, with everything fully explained in easy to understand language that does not get bogged down in jargon or woolly 'new age' rhetoric.

This practical guide is aimed very firmly at magicians and mentalists who live in the real world, and need real world advice and ideas.

Please note that The Magician's Guide to the Tarot is a PDF and is aimed at magicians and mentalists who are interested in incorporating the Tarot into their close-up routines and sets for entertainment purposes. It is not aimed at those wanting the work as Tarot card readers providing in-depth readings. For those interested in providing in-depth readings, please refer to other work by Paul Voodini.

A very good introduction to the interpretation of Tarot cards. If you are at all thinking about incorporating the Tarot into your act I would strongly recommend this. It is light enough to not struggle with but in depth enough to give you a solid foundation. The only downside is that for the 'court cards' (page-king & ace) Mr Voodini opted to give a brief overview and focus on his personal patter when giving the reading, where the rest of the cards have their meanings more efficiently defined while leaving the exact patter for you to come up with. Great buy, Great price.

Well explained, logical, well thought out layout of the principles.
It's a stand alone event / effect regardless of doing any mentalism with these Tarot cards.
It's a core guide that everyone should use regardless of their direction

Well first of all i love anything that comes from the mind of Paul Voodini so i guessed i would also love this.

I've been learning Tarot for a few months now and wanted to see what was the approach that Paul Voodini was using in this guide, and it's a really good one. You'll learn each card and their meaning but not in full depth, for that if you want you have specific Tarot books. He will teach you how to do readings, how present yourself when using Tarot cards, you will learn some tricks using the Tarot deck and some tips and tricks.

Magician's Guide to the Tarot is a very well written work, it introduces the Tarot in a light way that provides anyone the capability to give readings just after a little time and work of course.

Would give more stars but doesn't have the option XD

What a great introduction to the world of tarot. Paul has provided a great basis for you if you want to include any kind of tarot reading in your act. Every single card has a meaning behind it and Paul tells you how to see the meaning of the card, on the card. Literally. One of the most worn out books in my library.
