This is a fabulous book that gives easy, yet informative, guidance on the Tarot cards. Very easy to follow and to understand so great for beginners but also a lovely reference book for anyone using the Tarot cards. Beautiful illustrations and modern descriptions for the cards make this a big hit for me!

Highly recommended and a great little gift idea.

Thank you Quarto Publishing and Netgalley.

This book takes an empathetic approach and gives bite size approaches and allows you to have kindness and patience with yourself when dealing with life. This is so necessary for everyone to read in life. Highly recommend. Especially loved the reflection to true life to humanize my feelings and relate. I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

I've read a few of Cassie Uhl's books before, and she can do no wrong. This book is just as perfect as her others.
I'm not too knowledgeable on the tarot, so this book was perfect for me. It was easy to understand, and I loved the different sections. I had no idea that different tarot cards belonged to different elements for example.
Like all of Uhl's other books, the illustrations in this book are stunning! They really add so much to the book.
Loved this!!

This book is just like its cover: colorful, fun, intuitive, sprinkled with all the information a beginner needs in his or her tarot journey.

I kept my one star close because this book is designed with the author's tarot deck in mind, it has the same style, the same illustrations so if you are working with other decks you will have to have yours close in order to internalize the whole knowledge, this is only set back as a standalone book, in my opinion.

Getting over this fact, I liked that the drawings were inclusive and that they supported very well all the writing. It covers a bit about tarot itself, and then dives into the meaning of each card, with a bit of astrology and numerology in between.

I learned new things reading this book, I believe it's a fantastic gift for young people interested in the tarot without the gravity that other decks and books bring.

I received a copy of this in exchange for my honest opinion.

The Zenned Out Guide to Understanding Tarot by Cassie Uhl is a beginner's guide to learning about and using the Tarot for introspection, shadow work, divination, and more. Illustrated throughout with beautiful artwork, Understanding Tarot makes the practice approachable and easy to access for people of all experience levels.

As part of her Zenned Out series, Understanding Tarot adds to Uhl's body of work that places common-sense guides to spiritual practices into the hands of would-be practitioners. I loved this installment because it breaks the Tarot down into easy-to-digest components and gives a satisfying explanation of each without overwhelming the reader with too many elements at once. While the book addresses everything it needs to, it does so without bombarding the reader with an overload of information.

Especially, I appreciate the way Understanding Tarot touches on many different ways to use the Tarot, different correspondences, and related practices outside of Uhl's personal experience and urges the reader to research more if they wish. This gives the reader many jumping off points and topics to delve into further, without this book attempting to be the end-all of tarot books. I felt that Understanding Tarot was a beautiful starting place that organically ushers the reader into the practice with confidence and a solid foundational understanding of the Tarot. I will definitely be recommending this to newbies who are looking for a place to get started with the cards!

Thank you to the author and to NetGalley for an advanced e-copy in exchange for my honest opinion!

Cassie Uhl has done it again with an amazing guide into one of our favorite spiritual niches - Tarot. This is a great book to read all the way through or to hang onto for referencing when you are a skilled reader or a new reader! The illustrations in this are nothing short of beautiful and I love that you get a description of the card meaning both regular and reversed. I have always struggled with how to read reversed cards so this gave me a perfect starting point to work it into my practice. This guidebook is truly for your work with the cards, as Cassie says if you want to dive into the history of tarot you should look into other resources. She provides us a quick snippet and then moves swiftly into card spreads, meanings, and uses.

Thank you Cassie Uhl, Quarto Publishing Group, and NetGalley for this ARC in exchange for an honest review. I really don't think that there will ever be a Zenned Out Guide I don't run to read.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an e-copy of this book.

I received this book at exactly the right time as I had bought a deck of Tarot cards only a few days previously. I don't think reading it as an e-copy is the best way of experiencing this book, I feel it needs to be physically held and flicked through!

It is beautifully designed and illustrated and gives a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of reading the Tarot, including descriptions of the elements, correspondences, some numerology, astrology and suggested spreads. Each card has a fairly detailed explanatory page.

I would recommend this book to anyone wanting a thorough introduction to the Tarot.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an e-ARC of this title in exchange for my honest review. I was immediately drawn to the title, knowing that I love Tarot and I want to read more accurately, but it stressed me out. The book is well explained, gives great advice on how to do better readings, and use the Tarot as tap into our intuition. Highly Recommended.

I received an advance reader copy of this book to read in exchange for an honest review via netgalley and the publishers.

Understanding Tarot is a beautiful and well presented book by Cassie Uhl as an introduction to using Tarot.
I recently found my Tarot cards which I lost years ago and have been itching to start using them again and it was a fantastic refresher to read this book. I will be getting a physical copy at some point so I can reference back to it again and again.
This book is great for any skull set in using Tarot - from beginners to refreshers or even more advanced Tarot users. I loved how the book was broken down into easy to digest and understand parts which had the perfect amount of information and didn't make me feel overwhelmed or lost.
I can't wait to use this book to start my Tarot journey again!

I liked that the author introduced the history of the tarot first, it's like fun trivia for beginners. I also loved how the contents of this book are very easy to read and understand. The author connected numerology and astrology to tarot, as well. It is definitely great for beginners, alongside the pictures and colors.

Great book. I’m new to the topic and thought it was written so the topics were easy to understand. Would make a great gift.
