5.0 étoiles sur 5 Taking The Tarot To A New Level 7 mai 2010

"Beyond The Celtic Cross" takes the Tarot to a new level. Based on a single reading, the reader is shown how to take the cards beyond positional meanings using the following techniques: Elemental Dignities, Card Counting and Card Pairing. The spread that is presented here was immediatedly taken from a positional to a linear format, and worked with in this manner.

The unique foundation of this book is that the reading in question is an actual reading that was done for co-author Catherine Chapman - this is real life, not an imagined scenario. Catherine contacted Paul by e-mail when she had trouble interpeting an important reading. Through a series of e-mails, Paul mentored Catherine into seeing the possibilities for expanding how the cards were working in her life.

The book is written as a dialogue between Paul and Catherine, giving the reader the feeling that they are "there" - part of the process. It is interesting to watch the journey that both parties take, and how the experience is a transformng one for both of them.

This is not a book to read and file away - it is a working reference that has the power to expand any reader's experience interpreting the cards.

Can I make a confession? I've been waiting for this book with bated breath and was mighty envious that Douglas of Tarot Eon had his hands on a copy before I did. I'm usually not the jealous type but I was in full on coveting mode when I read his review. I had to have it! Immediate gratification!!! Oh, the agony of waiting! Finally the day came when the familiar Amazon smiley box arrived at my door and I got my paws around the long awaited book.

I'm an old timer here in regards to tarot reading. I've been playing around with it for almost 30 years. I've dealt with clients from all walks of life and answered every type of question that you can imagine. But I still find myself learning and searching for new techniques (even though I am rather fond of my own methods!). A few months ago, I got turned on to some excellent blogs from the UK that had some curious systems (card counting, Elemental Dignities, etc.) that caught my eye and I've been intrigued ever since. This book, "Beyond The Celtic Cross" by Paul Hughes Barlow and Catherine Chapman (two of the aforementioned bloggers) sheds light on these techniques and helps the reader to apply them in a way that can turn any tarot reading into a richer experience.

Written in a dialogue fashion between the two authors, we get to see these methods in action so to speak. It begins with Catherine writing to Paul about a tarot reading that she was having trouble interpreting. With Paul as her steady guide, they deftly maneuver through the different systems and demonstrate how to interpret with them using Catherine's reading as the example throughout the entire book.

Card Counting is very new to me and it was confusing to understand - but by following along with their example, it finally begun to sink in. And yes - it does add a new dimension to tarot reading. I had a basic understanding of Elemental Dignities but this book cleared up any lingering questions I had. I am a very visual learner and by having Catherine's reading to "see" what was happening, I put the pieces together and was able to understand where they got their interpretations. This is a huge plus in my opinion.

Not only do we get to see the methods in action but we get to see Catherine grow as a tarot reader and visionary. This made the book a very personal experience, not just some old dry tarot book that would have bored me to tears. I highly recommend this to any tarot reader - but especially to those who are looking to shake up their current reading style. Trust me, you will never look at tarot the same!

The Celtic Cross is one of my favorite tarot spreads. I love its history, its tradition, its symbolism. I love how it offers a comprehensive overview of any question or situation. And now, thanks to "Beyond the Celtic Cross," I've learned that the spread is even deeper and richer than I once thought.

I highly recommend this book to any student or teacher of tarot.

"Beyond the Celtic Cross" focuses on three techniques that can be used to add layers of meaning to a Celtic Cross spread: card counting, pairing, and elemental dignities. All three methodologies make excellent additions to any tarot reader's toolkit.

The three systems are fascinating, too. They're based on ideas and theories that were first developed by the Golden Dawn, the secret society that designed the decks most of us use today. I like that connection to history, and I like the layers of meaning that counting, pairing, and elemental dignities can add to a reading.

The three procedures aren't simple -- but that's why they take a full-length book to explain.

In fact, if you're interested in the techniques, you should break out a tarot deck and replicate the reading in the book with your own cards. If you follow along with the illustrations and the explanations, you'll feel like you're taking part in a tarot intensive or an experiential workshop on the subject.

In that regard, "Beyond the Celtic Cross" reminds me of New Thoughts on Tarot: Transcripts from the First International Newcastle Tarot Symposium, featuring Mary Greer and Rachel Pollack.

Most of "Beyond the Celtic Cross" is based on a tarot reading and email exchange between Paul Hughes-Barlow, a British tarot scholar, and Catherine Chapman, an up-and-coming tarot blogger. I expected a lively dialogue, which the book delivers.

The exchange between the two, however, is surprisingly intimate. It involves a subject that comes up in almost every tarot reading: Catherine's search for love and romance.

I liked that a lot, too. Even though I was reading a book, I felt like I was a privileged bystander, listening in on a private conversation.

That aspect reminded me of the written correspondence between Aleister Crowley and Frieda Harris, as they collaborated on the Thoth tarot. Paul and Catherine's dialogue gives the book an immediacy that's missing in most other tarot works, and it brings what could otherwise be a dry topic to life.

I've always thought of Paul Hughes-Barlow as a serious, scholarly man, because I only know him through his website. Reading his interactions with a student in "real time" gives us a refreshing glimpse of his real personality. As readers, we also get to experience his teaching vicariously, through Catherine-- who, in the end, helps communicate his message. It's the best of both worlds.

It was also interesting to observe how two experienced tarot readers could explore a personal question with a professional detachment -- and it was gratifying to note how the focus of the reading shifted along the way, from Catherine's search for someone outside herself to a better understanding of herself. That part rang true to life, too.

Catherine was especially forthright and honest in her approach. It took a lot of courage for her to bare her soul through an ongoing email exchange -- and it took even more courage for her to publish the results. The story that unfolds, however, only proves that the personal truly is universal.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Take Your Tarot Readings to a VERY New Level! 10 mai 2010
Par Nancy Hendrickson - Publié sur

Having followed the writings of both Paul Hughes-Barlow and Catherine Chapman, I looked forward to receiving their recently released book, Beyond the Celtic Cross, Secret techniques for taking Tarot to an exciting new level. The book's structure is based on an e-mail correspondence between Paul and Catherine - - each delving deep into the meaning behind Catherine's Celtic Cross spread, with the central question centered around a personal issue in Catherine's life.

Although the reading began as a standard Celtic Cross spread, with Paul's guiding hand, Catherine immersed herself in the techniques that took the reading to a far deeper level; these included counting cards, elemental dignities, and card pairing. Because I've always read using a blend of the traditional and the intuitive, I was particularly interested to learn more about these techniques.

The chapter on card counting is fascinating, and a technique I've been playing with since reading the book. Almost as important (in my view) is the take on the "uncounted cards"; this reminds me a bit of a reading that lacks an entire suit or contains no majors - - it's what's NOT there that draws attention.

The original card counting system came from the Order of the Golden Dawn, and is used to connect the cards to begin building a coherent story. I don't have either Paul or Catherine's level of adeptness at this, but I'm going to continue playing!

As a reader I'm always interested in learning new ways of interpreting the cards or a spread; through this book I've been challenged to stretch my brain and my skills! Oh yes - I do encourage you lay out out the same cards that were in Catherine's original reading while reading the book - it will make things much clearer if you have the visual right in front of you. If you're into Tarot - this is a must-have for the book shelf.

This is NOT one of those typical books on the tarot. In here you will not find the same tired material presented the same way as in the mainstream of books on this subject. I have read enough of these books to make such a critical statement. These are my own insights from reading the book and actual work done using the methods that were given.

What you will find is techniques that will show you how take the reading beyond those ten set positions that is only showing you 10 percent of what is going on leaving the other 90 percent of the information hidden .

By use of elemental symbolism, combined with numerological techniques, Paul and Catherine will show you a new and fresh way to breath life into your readings and truly take you beyond the traditional Celtic Cross.

The techniques they show you;
* Elemental Dignities
* Card Counting
* Pairings

When combining these techniques, you as the reader will see there is so much missed information from using a spread that is static in nature.

This is because with the traditional Celtic Cross spread you are trying to fit the meaning of a single card into a certain position with it own meaning. Thus limiting yourself to 1% of information for each given card.

By using the technique of card counting, the first thing you have done is make the spread dynamic. No longer are the cards `stuck" in one position. The cards themselves are dynamic in nature so why would you try to read them in a forced static manner? There are techniques for card permutations using the Celtic Cross but I find those limiting as well. By card counting, pairing, and use of the elemental dignities, you have opened a floodgate of information where there was only obscure bits and pieces before. I have been practicing this technique for only a few days, but the difference is like night and day. The readings I have done for myself were unlike any I have done before.

Another interesting thing with these techniques is that a beginner with limited knowledge can do an accurate and insightful reading with knowing very little about the cards and minimal practice. This is by no means saying that this system is simple...simple in design and use but complex in results. As with anything you will need to practice. So what makes this system so different from the others?
First there is no need to memorize the meanings of all 78 cards. You do need to be familiar with the Elemental Dignities and their rules that are quite basic and explained very clearly to you. Also the Elemental and Astrological aspect symbols, learning them is much easier than memorizing 78 meanings, or worse 156 if you are trying to use reversals in that manner.
It will be helpful to learn a single keyword for each card card, but do yourself a favor and do not suffer under the delusion that you need a very detailed meaning of each and every card. As Paul has said;
"parrot-like memorisation of the divinatory meanings of the cards was not very important. It is the insights you get when you look at the cards for the querent that counts".
I remember the first time I read that a few months ago and how it has totally changed my outlook on the Tarot since.

The book starts out with traditional Celtic Cross spread that Catherine had done for herself as she uses these techniques to interpret the cards in much detail as Paul serves as a guide. It also gives an account of Catherine's own Spiritual journey and the initiating visions she experienced. Throughout the book these innovative techniques used are explained in enough detail for you to start looking at the cards and reading them in a new light.

Here is some pieces of what is printed on the back of the book by Douglas Gibb, Professional Tarot Reader and owner of the Tarot Eon blog.

"It goes beyond the surface of the Tarot spread and explores the hidden depths"

"It explains how to decode those parts of a tarot spread that seem to make no sense and how to breakout of readings that have seem to become stuck"

"The transforming experience that unfolds with the application of these techniques will benefit the reader in many subtle ways; both on a practical and spiritual level"

If you are new to the Tarot or have been working with the cards for years, buy this book! For me it has totally changed how I see and work with the tarot, and has opened a path for my own spiritual journey.
