Book Review: Tarot by the Moon: Spreads & Spells for Every Month of the Year Victoria Constantino

What a great surprise this book was! This book does a fantastic job of breaking down tarot for the reader. It is not just a moon tarot book, although there is plenty of that in here, it is also a book on how to use tarot in your life. This a great reference book that is also easy to understand.

This is exactly the sort of book I see myself referring to again and again as I use tarot in my practice. It has a lot of information about tarot (numerology, symbols, colors, etc,) which helps the reader to interpret the cards. This breakdown is so good as it doesn’t just have a glossary to look up one specific card. I almost hate those, since it is not really intended to help you learn but to keep you relying on someone’s interpretation. This book gives you all you need to know about the cards in order to read them.

This book has so much good advice on working with the moon throughout the year. Each month’s moon is broken down into specific energies that work well for that month. You can also use the glossary to look up specific subjects or spells around what you need. The author encourages spells and rituals to help you get the most out of each moon’s energy. This book gives the reader plenty of spreads to help fine tune the message from the tarot. I so appreciated the questions for each spread and the ideas for meditating on what those cards really mean for your life.

This book is not just very useful, it is also quite beautiful. The spreads are easy to interpret with illustrations showing where to put what card. The information in this book is also easy to digest with highlights of important information easy to see at a glance. This is a good book for either beginners or more advanced tarot practitioners. I’d recommend this book for any tarot user who wants to get more from their cards.
