"A new method for reading the tarot. Using almost any tarot deck and a memory from their past, readers can gain understanding of their present and insight into their future"--Provided by publisher.
Using Janet Boyer's BIT (Back in Time) method of working with the Tarot, readers will gain insight into the present--and ultimately their future--by exploring their past. Gone are arcane and hard-to-understand explanations of Tarot symbols. Boyer offers an intuitive approach that allows readers to "feel the truth" of the cards as they relate to the specific parts of their lives. In a nutshell, the BIT Method:
* Asks readers to think about a specific incident from their past
* Break down that memory or event into components
* Connect the elements of any card with the components of that memory
Boyer presents Back in Time (BIT) snapshots from her colleagues, some of Tarot's best-known writers and deck artists who relate their own experiences with the BIT Method that range from comical and msyterious to sobering. Providing more than 100 exercises and referencing more than 40 Tarot decks, "The Back in Time Tarot Book" draws on personal examples, headlines, television, music, and fairytales, allowing Tarot to be appreciated in a fresh new way. The BIT Method does not follow that there is only one way to see Tarot cards now and in the future; rather, it encourages readers in their own abilities to recognize what is important in the cards.
