  • Palmistry Made Easy
    Johnny Fincham
    This is a small book, it is only 80 pages in length, but the author Mr. Johnny Fincham does seem to pack a lot of information into those 80 pages. In the introduction, Mr. Fincham mentions Charlotte Wolff who was a physician and psychoanalyst in 1936 and John Manning who wrote several articles in Psychology publications in the early 2000’s. And he also says that Palmistry is a vibrant and powerful tool used now in criminology, psychology and anthropology and genetics. On page 1 he writes,”The palm is proving to be an incredible mirror into the workings of the human mind.”

    One of the first things Mr. Fincham says to do when doing a palm reading is to use water soluble ink to take prints of both hands of your client. You’ll need these to do the full reading that he is talking about doing. He then goes through the book breaking down all the different parts of the hand from different sections to the texture of the skin and the flexibility of the fingers. And one thing that I notice missing in the section on the flexibility on the digits on the hand is any type of warning when bending the digits to check for flexibility. The author instructs you to bend the thumb back toward the wrist, not to have the client do it.

    There are 10 chapters in this book, each taking a look at a specific area of the hand. Chapter 7 is where he starts talking about the lines of the hand. And how they each have their own meanings and what part of a client’s or your mental approach to life they connect to. He also breaks the pattern of lines down into race and gender. In Chapter 8 he talks about the teacher’s square, and how that relates to careers. But later in Chapter 9, Mr. Fincham writes that stars and other shapes hold little to no meaning in a palm reading. He does mention in Chapter 9 a line he calls Spirit Line and writes:” It shows psychic perception and intuitive potential. It’s a very rare marking.” pg 60.

    I feel that this is a base book, that you would need this and maybe an older book that talks about the “Mount of Mars” or the “Mount of Saturn” to do a full palm reading. This is a good book to have as part of a toolkit in studying Palmistry, but this is only part of a toolkit. ~ Dawn Borries, PaganPages.org

  • Spiritual Look at the 12 Signs, A
    Joseph Polansky
    I used to be into Astrology, tarot cards, palm reading, etc. back in high school (who wasn't, right?) so this book really took me back and allowed me to tap into my spiritual side and get a new perspective on the different areas of my life as well as the lives of others. Some parts of the book were repetitive, but at the same time, I can see how the author needed to reiterate certain things because some people tend to pick up books like these and only read the parts about their specific zodiac sign. I really loved the insight I got from reading through this and am looking forward to learning more.

    Enjoyed the concepts of the spiritual side of each sign. It was obvious that a great deal of thought, research was done writing this book. I will keep and re-read as a reference tool. ~ Pam Reiss, NetGalley

  • Naked Tarot
    Janet Boyer
    Janet Boyer’s newest take on the Tarot is sharp and saucy as F*&#. A few reasons you should strip down with Naked Tarot? 1. The correspondences are current and varied (I love interconnection!). 2. The face time given to the Minor Arcana and the Court Cards. Courts are difficult. This book lays them bare. 3. It’s a fun read. Thanks to Janet’s conversational flair, reading Naked Tarot is like chatting with a friend over tea. No. Make that a hot pink cosmo. – Natalie Zaman, Wandering Witch and author of Magical Destinations of the Northeast and Color and Conjure ~ Natalie Zaman

  • Naked Tarot
    Janet Boyer
    Vibrant, witty, and full of wisdom, Janet Boyer’s newest book, Naked Tarot, is a gourmet feast for those hungering for Tarot insights. Her words magically and magnetically guide us to consume her instructions and follow her astute pointers, helping us discover our core connections with each card. Because of Janet’s upbeat tone, Naked Tarot is an easy read—yet the content is meaningfully deep and esoterically perceptive. Her reader-friendly discussions on how to use the cards are thoughtfully detailed and well-organized. Positively delightful, the book assists beginning readers in developing a firm foundation for building their Tarot practice, while also providing tools enabling the advanced reader to soar to new mystical heights. Kooch Daniels, author Tarot at a Crossroads, Tarot d’Amour, Awakening the Chakras and Other Metaphysical Books ~ Kooch Daniels

  • Naked Tarot
    Janet Boyer
    In Naked Tarot, Janet Boyer leverages her significant experience with Tarot to break down each of the cards into impressive detail. While other books may tell you how each card’s meaning changes with different questions and points of curiosity, Naked Tarot does it an utterly unique and sassy (sometimes, NSFW) way, calling up contexts and references I haven’t seen in other books. From using the Tarot to explore a personality, find a career, solve a problem and deepen your spirituality—to divining the future and even discovering your Disney totem—Naked Tarot covers all the bases. It’s a significant undertaking by someone well worthy of the task.—Tierney Sadler, Author/Creator of the Deck of 1000 Spreads ~ Tierney Sadler

  • Naked Tarot
    Janet Boyer
    Janet Boyer's newest book Naked Tarot is a hard hitting, belly-laugh inducing, no nonsense guide to Tarot. Its audience, from beginners through experienced readers, can aim for the underbelly with their clients with the help of this book. Drilling straight to the core Naked Tarot enables the Tarot to reveal depth, hurt and hope in a contemporary language. It broadens the reader's horizons with innovative spreads and correspondences--including Australian Flower Essences. I couldn’t put in down; it was like reading a racy Tarot thriller on a rollercoaster! For example, Janet’s description of the Knight of Swords includes the "first rumblings of revolution with spray cans and crowbars". Naked Tarot deserves to be a key Tarot text for those readers with a contemporary, direct style. — Jenne Perlstein MBBS, BSW, AASW Cert IV TAE, Prof M’ber TGA, Cert Appl.Astrol.

  • Naked Tarot
    Janet Boyer
    This ain’t yer mama’s Tarot book…Janet Boyer’s newest effort--Naked Tarot: Sharp and Sassy Advice From the Cards--is without a doubt one of the best “boot camp” Tarot books I’ve seen in a long, long time. No frills and no excess verbiage, no mystical waving about of incense or charged crystals, this is a straight up, in-your-face approach to learning the cards. The blunt cleverness of the descriptions combined with snarky, wickedly funny practical applications will bring both a smile to your face and a clear, precise image for all 78 cards. If you have a problem with language (read: the occasional F-bomb), this likely isn’t your book. If you want a dusty reference book that takes itself way too seriously, Naked Tarot is definitely not for you. If you want to have a deep understanding of the cards without having to wade through stacks of inconsequential details, you’ve struck pay dirt. After all, you don’t need to know how to build a watch in order to tell time. I consider Naked Tarot a wonderful new resource and, at the risk of fan girl gushing, I can’t recommend it highly enough! — Shannon MacLeod, author of The Celtic Cross Spread: Cutting to the Chase and co-creator of the ShadowFox Tarot ~ Shannon MacLeod

  • Naked Tarot
    Janet Boyer
    Janet Boyer’s writing style is blunt and lively, her knowledge of Tarot based on years of study and experience. I knew I was in for a treat when I read Naked Tarot—and her newest book did not disappoint. Janet conveys the essence of each card in a way that is easy to grasp and remember, largely because of her outrageous honesty. Even experienced readers will come away with a refreshing and novel way to view of the cards To paraphrase the cinematic Mary Poppins, Janet provides us with that “spoon full of sugar” that helps the Tarot medicine go down. — Anthony Louis, author of Llewellyn's Complete Book of Tarot: A Comprehensive Guide, Tarot Beyond the Basics, Tarot Plain and Simple and other books ~ Anthony Louis

  • Naked Tarot
    Janet Boyer
    Janet Boyer’s Naked Tarot is a comprehensive, straight-talking, irreverent guide to the Tarot—and then some! This isn’t the same old typical Tarot book you’ve already read so many times before. Instead, Janet provides a fresh overview of Tarot, including insightful interpretations on the suits and cards, as well as new, thought-provoking and useful correspondences (flower essences, animal totems, spirits, Sabian symbols, crystals/stones and more)—not to mention a spread for every card. I know that I will actually USE this book, not just read it. Janet has outdone herself; in fact, Naked Tarot may be her best book yet. — Judika Illes, author of Encyclopedia of 5000 Spells, Encyclopedia of Spirits, Encyclopedia of Mystics, Saints & Sages and other books of magic. ~ Judika Illes
