Book Review - My Tarot Something else by Nisha Mehta

                        " Tarot tells what you need to know and not what you want to know"

As a student of science, I am a very practical & "matter of fact" person and would never believe in astrology or birth charts and so did Nisha Mehta, the author of the book "My tarot Something Else". Yes ! She didn't initially but destiny had something else planned for her and here she is as not only a leading tarot reader but as an author of a book on tarot too...strange! Isn't it ? 

               "When your destination is confirmed, a path will appear, the journey will begin".

I personally believe that as we get older, the problems and difficulties that come along, lead us to the occult sciences or "knowledge of the hidden". We all want to seek answers to the questions pertaining to the future. 
      "When honesty is not corrupted, faith is not disrupted, the journey will be uninterrupted"

 I received the book around 3 pm and as I opened the packet, I was intrigued by the cover of the book. It had a young women walking alone immersed in her thoughts and I could so easily relate to her. It's your journey and you have to walk alone......

                                               "A thoughtful decision eliminates the confusion"

           This book by Nisha Mehta is a beginners guide to tarot. Tarot is an assimilation of 78 cards consisting of MAJOR ARCANA & MINOR ARCANA. Major Arcana are 22 cards numbered from 0-21 which relate to major events in life. Minor Arcana are a set of 56 cards represented by 4 suits with 14 cards each  - 10 pip cards + 4 court cards. These denote daily and regular life events. This book explains each card in a precise and in depth manner. The author also throws lights on related topics like the key to reading cards, how to spread them, interpreting tarot among others. 

                                              "Success starts with a series of sacrifices"

In the preface, the author tells us about her journey as a tarot reader, the roller coaster ride and how she stands vindicated.

If you are fasinated by tarot and want to know more, My tarot something else comes as a handbook of sorts. An interesting read and highly recommended to someone who wants to know the nuances of tarot. 

Ratings - 4.5/5
