The beloved literary iconoclast delivers a fresh twenty-first century primer on tarot that can be used with any deck. While tarot has gone mainstream with a diverse range of tarot decks widely available, there has been no equally mainstream guide to the tarot—one that can be applied to any deck—until now. Infused with beloved iconoclastic author Michelle Tea’s unique insight, inviting pop sensibility, and wicked humor, Modern Tarot is a fascinating journey through the cards that teaches how to use this tradition to connect with our higher selves. Whether you’re a committed seeker or a digital-age skeptic—or perhaps a little of both—Tea’s essential guide opens the power of tarot to you. Modern Tarot doesn’t require you to believe in the supernatural or narrowly focus on the tarot as a divination tool. Tea instead provides incisive descriptions of each of the 78 cards in the tarot system—each illustrated in the charmingly offbeat style of cartoonist Amanda Verwey—and introduces specially designed card-based rituals that can be used with any deck to guide you on a path toward radical growth and self-improvement. Tea reveals how tarot offers moments of deep, transformative connection—an affirming, spiritual experience that is gentle, individual, and aspirational. Grounded in Tea’s twenty-five years of tarot wisdom and her abiding love of the cards, and featuring 78 black and white illustrations throughout, Modern Tarot is the ultimate introduction to the tradition of the tarot for millennial readers.… (more)

This book is pretty good! ( )

Best book I've read on Tarot. Tea demystifies everything surrounding the cards and allows you to see that it's YOU creating the meaning rather than something in the ether. I've been reading cards for, well, for a few decades and this is the first book that made me feel confident about it. Tea is a marvelous, engaging writer in any genre so even if you're only mildly interested in Tarot this book might be worth a glance. ( )

This is one of the most outstanding Tarot books I've ever read - chatty, conversational, intensely personal, and yet full of revelations and new ways of seeing. My favorite part are the magical suggestions to go with each card - they're not always the direction I want to go, but they always offer inspiration. ( )
