Tarot for Troubled Times


There is a shadow that darkens each of our inner and outer lives. In Tarot for Troubled Times, Shaheen Miro and Theresa Reed help us find the light in this darkness. Learning to work with the shadow--facing it directly and leaning into it rather than away--is the key to becoming unstuck so we can change negative patterns into positive ones and find healing and empowerment for ourselves and others. Tarot, as the authors show, offers a rich and subtle path for this profound transformation.

In Tarot for Troubled Times, Miro and Reed show readers how to:
  • Work with the archetypes of the Major Arcana to befriend our shadows.
  • Discover--through affirmations, tarot prescriptions, and other healing modalities--how to empower ourselves and find our true voices.
  • Take our newly found powers and speak out so that we can become a helpful ally for the light and begin to do our greater work in the world.
  • Calculate our astrological "birth card" so we can understand the unique wisdom hidden in the personal challenges that confront us.

"Tarot For Troubled Times manages to be a primer on shadow work, tarot, and magick for the collective and the personal all at once while also digging deep and providing plenty of information for seasoned readers and magickal practitioners. The book manages to stay empowering and uplifting even though the topic at hand can get heavy on it's own. Reed and Miro are both seasoned and skilled at what they do but what makes them both special is the heart that they put into their work. It's that heart that shines brightest in this book, not only leading us through navigating our own and the world's darkest waters but holding our hand and making us feel supported every step of the way." --Cassandra Snow, author of Queering the Tarot
