Title: Tarot Elements: Five Readings to Reset Your Life
Author: Melissa Cynova
After reading Melissa Cynova’s first book, Kitchen Table Tarot, I was excited to pick up this one and see what new readings she would present for tarot readers. This book focuses on the five elements (earth, air, fire, water, spirit) and paring them with areas in your life that need attention. She teaches us to use the elements and tarot spreads to focus on different parts of our bodies and life and slowly fix ourselves.
I think this book was a nice addition to Kitchen Table Tarot. It allows you to take what you initially learned about tarot and apply it to parts of your life with these five specific spreads. I did some of them as I was reading through the book but not all of them. If done correctly, it forces you to face your life and your problems with it so expect for these spreads to be emotional and hard to face.
Cynova also provides exercises to do along with the spreads that can also help you work through your problems and anxieties. My only real issue with this book was that the specific examples provided for each spread did get a little repetitive as the book went on so I started skimming them.
Overall, I look forward to her next book and will continue to reference this book (and her other one) in the future.
