  Book Review: Tarot For Troubled Times
  By Shaheen Miro & Theresa Reed
(Weiser Books, July 2019)

Tarot for Troubled Times by Shaheen Miro and Theresa Reed is a highly relevant book, and it drops this week. This book is an extraordinary guide for readers who want a deeper dive, but it’s  publication also  hits exactly at the moment when our world needs it the most.  Worldwide politics are surreal and terrifying; the threat of war is constant, mass shootings and terrorism are rampant; addiction and depression are  major challenges faced by thousands, if not millions. So yeah…”troubled times” is an understatement.

This book also lines up in perfect synchronicity with a global uptick in interest for anything and everything  metaphysical. Pretty much anything  witchy  or “woo woo” is downright trendy at the moment, and of course that includes Tarot. In factTarot leads the pack.  Currently, everyone and their fifteen year old sister are hoarding  new decks, smudge bundles and rose quartz, declaring themselves expert Tarot readers.

  This book, however, is written by real experts: the depth of knowledge here and the way it’s imparted are simply un-paralleled.

 Both authors are highly respected metaphysicians, each with a yards-long long list of talents and accomplishments, which is what  makes this book so compelling and comprehensive.

We first met Shaheen Miro at the Denver Tarot Convention in 2015, where he taught an incredible class on tasseography, more commonly known as tea leaf reading. He’s a psychic, a card reader, a deck creator (The Lunar Nomad Oracle Deck)  an energy worker and intuitive coach. Follow this link to an interview we did with Shaheen for more info on his process:

Theresa Reed aka The Tarot Lady is so well known, she probably doesn’t need an introduction… but just in case: she’s a driving force in the global Tarot  community, and an expert on several levels. She’s a crackerjack reader, an author and prolific blogger, an astrologer, and a business mentor who really knows her stuff. She was  recently the keynote speaker at The Readers Studio, the largest Tarot event in the United States; she also hosts a popular  podcast and teaches workshops and seminars  worldwide. Click this link to read  our interview with her:

  But back to their book: Tarot For Trouble Times is a profound work, addressing  healing through Tarot and magick, using everything from unflinching personal shadow work to cutting etheric cords. There’s sections on everything from dealing with energy vampires to becoming more globally aware and socially conscious. Written workbook style, there are chapters on the Elements, personal affirmations, rituals, meditations and candle magic as well as lots of  Tarot wisdom.

The plethora of Tarot spreads is sweeping and unique, including layouts created specifically for  self-knowledge as well as  for grief,  addiction and relapses, and for those dark times when you feel lost and untethered.

 Tarot For Troubled Times  really lives up to it’s subtitle: “Confront your shadow, heal your self, transform the world”.  

We highly recommend this thoughtful-and thought-provoking book. It’s must for any serious reader and those who aspire to be.

  4. I want to use this medium to testify of how i got back my ex husband after divorce, i and my husband have been married for 8 years with 2 kids, we have been a happy family. Last year his behavior towards me and the kids changed, i suspected he was meeting another woman outside out marriage, any time i confronted him, he threatened to divorce me, i did all i could to make hings right but all to no avail until i saw a post on a "love and relationship forum" about a spell caster who helps people to cast spell on marriage and relationship issues, when i contacted this spell caster via email, he helped me cast a re-union spell and my husband changed and came apologizing to me and the kids. Contact this great spell caster for your relationship or marriage issues via this email: chiefdrlucky@gmail.com or Whats App him on +2348132777335 Website : http://chiefdrluckysolutionhome.website2.me/ Good luck

  5. When I found Dr. OKISIN I was desperate in need of bringing my ex lover back. He left me for another woman. It happened so fast and I had no say in the situation at all. He just dumped me after 3 years with no explanation. I contact Dr. OKISIN through his Whats app number +2348109374702  and He told me me what i need to do before he can help me and i did what he told me to, after i provided what he wanted, he cast a love spell to help us get back together. Shortly after he did his spell, my boyfriend started texting me again and felt horrible for what he just put me through. He said that I was the most important person in his life and he knows that now. We moved in together and he was more open to me than before and then he started spending more time with me than before. Ever since Dr. OKISIN helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before. I highly recommends Dr. OKISIN to anyone in need of help. Email: dr.okisinsolutiontemple@gmail.com Call him or add him on whatsapp via: +2348109374702  ..
