Publisher's Summary

Though tarot is often thought of as a tool for divination and fortune-telling, it also has deep roots in spirituality and psychology. For those who know how to see and listen, the cards hold the potential to help us better navigate the full spectrum of the human experience.

In Tarot for Change, Jessica Dore divulges years of hard-won secrets about how to work with tarot to better understand ourselves and live in alignment with what’s precious. Dore shows readers how to choose a deck, interpret images, and build a relationship with the cards, while also demonstrating how the mythic imagery of tarot supports modern therapeutic concepts like mindfulness, acceptance, and compassion. Her reflections on each of the 78 cards are a vibrant tapestry that weaves together ideas from psychology, behavioral science, spirituality, and old stories, breathing new language into ancient wisdoms about what it means to be human.

This is as much a book for those who are new to tarot as it is for those who have worked with the cards for years. And it's a book for anyone interested in exploring what it means to experience joy, heartbreak, wonder, stagnation, grief, loneliness, love. A book of secrets, symbols, and stories, Tarot for Change is a charm for remembering that our problems are not new, we are never alone, and whether we know it or not, we are always in a process of change.

This audiobook includes a downloadable PDF of the from the tarot deck.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

"Tarot for Change is an instant classic, a must-have for every tarot enthusiast, and a manifesto for insightful living. Jessica Dore is a lighthouse whose wisdom permeates every page and a teacher who brings to life her subject with undeniable skill and depth.” (Chani Nicholas, astrologer and author of You Were Born for This)

“Jessica Dore has replicated (in wonderfully literary book form) the most expansive, juicy, intuitive, and transformative tarot session. She’s integrated so much wisdom from all kinds of traditions to make the spiritual feel splendidly accessible and the universal feel warmly personal. For people who think they’re not spiritual enough for tarot, Dore has created a very useful psychological framework from the card’s lessons, with plenty of research and insight to back it up. For those who feel a little too woo-woo for psychology, she’s presented the concepts with such artistry and soul that all will feel welcome. And that’s the gift that Dore has given us in Tarot for Change: the gift of feeling more welcome to the tarot, more welcome on our healing journey, and more welcome in our own lives.” (Mari Andrew, New York Times best-selling author of Am I There Yet? and My Inner Sky)

Tarot for Change is the very best kind of tarot book: one that contains magical hidden depths, and rewards careful readers with truly astounding wisdom and generosity. Jessica Dore combines ancient spirituality with modern psychology to share insights that feel both timeless and brand new. Tarot for Change will teach you about tarot, but also about yourself, and all the joy, heartache, and mystery of being human.” (Claire Comstock-Gay, author of Madame Clairevoyant’s Guide to the Stars)

beautiful and deep

wow, this was my first book on Tarot I've ever experienced. It was so powerful and gave so many deep lessons that were both intellectual and deep. Thank you, you've inspired me Jessica, to deepen my practice. It also was very intelligent about Mental Health as well, and had an interesting take on the spiritual nature of psychology. I have recommended this book to several people already. Oh! and the narration was perfect 😍

It's about time

I have been trying to find a book like this one.
Every Tarot book thus far, seems to be the same.
This is the first time I can honestly say, this is a must buy.
If you are looking for a more in-depth understanding of the cards,, then look no farther.

fantastic tarot book

A great book to develop the ability to interpret tarot cards. I kept a notebook with notes on the cards. my ability to read the cards have improved a ton with this book. Particularly suited to using the cards as a tool for self reflection.

Impressive! The Dore Doctrine!!!

There is so much to say about how much I believe every word that is written in your book. I purchased a hardcopy, and Kindle to ensure that I have a written version with me at all times. Your interpretation for the King of Pentacles, and the 3 of Swords, are absolutely amazing. You did not waste any-time or money on your education and work experience; connects brilliantly. Thank you so much.

Not for beginners. A different approach to Tarot.

I loved this audio book. It's looking at Tarot from a therapist point of view. I will listen to this book again (probably several times) as it will take some time to digest the meanings. I'm still learning Tarot. I've been trying for several years to the point that I can visualize the cards in my head. If I could not visualize, I would have to have each card in front of me as I listened to this book. If you're brand new to Tarot, this probably isn't the best book for you. For me Kitchen Table Tarot was the 1st audio book, 2nd was Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom, 3rd was this one.

Tremendous resource, beautifully narrated

I’m thankful to the poet friend who shared she was reading Tarot for Change. Based on her recommendation and my struggles with some questions, which arose in my life and in my art, I bought TfC. I don’t even know the Tarot. I think I’ve had 2 or 3 readings in my life? But this book and the concepts discussed were beyond valuable. Highly recommend to artists and seekers of all stripes and spots and temperaments. This book is a gem.

Love this book.

The interweaving of psychology with the symbolism of the tarot opened up a space to explore different modalities of psychology from a different perspective.
I highly recommend this book for anyone struggling with trauma.
