Tarot Book Thoughts | True Heart: Intuitive Heart by Rachel True

Friday, January 8, 2021



Hey Babes! Happy Friday! 

I do hope your day is going well because after these last couple of days...whew! Anyolways, I'm here to share about what will be a every or every now and again Friday post. Tarot books. I've bought many over the years and I figured why not share them here on the blog. Some of these books will have decks with them, some won't but the posts will be the same...sharing my thoughts on these books. 

********

First book up is True Heart Intuitive Tarot by Rachel True. If you don't know her, she is an actress best known for her role in the movie The Craft. I know her from other tv shows but that's neither here or there, lols. Rachel has always been into tarot even before her iconic role which she tells us in the book. 


I liked this book because she gives really simple ways to read and understand tarot cards. Her words are straight to the point. I myself would think this book would be great for folk who are beginning their tarot journey. This books also reads as her biography if you will as she shares parts of her life growing up and in Hollywood. This is done with the major arcana cards in the deck. Stellar idea really as it gives readers a peek into her life and helps tells the story of the card in question and how it served its purposes for her. 


As far as the minor arcana, she tells the cards meanings in high/low vibes and how they would work as far as your relationships (personal and business) but she goes more in-depth about both the minor and major cards at the beginning of the book.


For the most part, I like the book and I think its cool that she tells stories about her growing up (partly in a foster home) and her life trying and then making it as an actress. Some of the stories she tell, chile...
Her being biracial but still not being light enough and then there is one in there about Bill Cosby. 
It was something different then I read before in regards to tarot books and I thought she did a good job of telling how a certain card pertained to a certain time in her life. 

As you can see from my pictures, the book does come with a deck. She based her deck off of the Rider Waite Smith deck but does change some of the wording but most folk do when they are creating their own deck. It's a beautiful deck; bright clean designs and is inclusive as far as skin tones. Its an equal opportunity deck, lols. Which I tend to gravitate towards. The stock of the cards are pretty good as well. I'm not much of an spread card reader but Rachel also shares a couple of tarot spreads including her own. 


At the end of it all, if I had to rate this book; I would give it four stars. Rachel True is a good story teller and her experience in reading tarot helps this book greatly. And even though she is a celebrity, its good to know she has a history in reading the cards. I wouldn't have gotten this book/deck if she was like most celebrities who just want to tap their names on shit for profit. Tarot is a really good way of learning about yourself and your intuition. It should be used/done in a honest and true way, Rachel did that.  

Anyolways, if you're looking to get into tarot; again, I think this book/deck is one the great starts. There are many and also tons of information via the internet. I also did a flip through of this deck via Youtube

You can find Rachel True's book and tarot deck via Amazon and of course her publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. (Side note: they did her dirty on the packaging...in a word it was cheap. Do better Houghton). 

side note, side note: if you're sensitive to nudity, then maybe this isn't your kind of deck as there are nudes here and there.
