This book has received a minimum of attention yet I feel it is one of the most important tarot enhancements to my readings. Because you can read the description from the book covers, I would like to tell you how it has helped me. I first bought the book in the 80's and lost it through moving around, so I have recently purchased it again because it is an essential reference book.

Briefly, Hasbrouck has devised a formula using numerology, the elements, the planets and the sun: “Each of the thirty-six, 10-day cycles of the solar year has been keyed to a particular card in the tarot deck...” For each cycle she details positives, negatives, balance and comment, including famous people born in each cycle.

As a Romani (Gypsy), tarot has been a part of my life since childhood, I believe that nothing is written in stone and that the tarot presents possibilities, not a definite “fortune” that cannot be changed. But it has always functioned as a source of guidance in my life, signaling potentials that should be followed or changed.

As tarot readers know, Wands are Fire (Spirit), Swords are Air (Mind), Cups are Water (Emotion) and Pentacles are Earth (Security). Hasbrouck follows this ancient formula and presents each ten-day cycle for each birthday.

For instance, my birthday is April 15 (Fire sign of Aries) and the card assigned to me, from the Minor Arcana, is the Four of Wands which has been named “Perfected Work” based on the Smith-Rider-Waite tarot deck that comes the closest to Romani teachings. It depicts two people dancing between 4 wands with a castle/home behind them. I think of it as the haven of refuge card and although I cannot share what this has meant to me (and my roommate who shares the same card for his birth date of April 18), it enhances my understanding of tarot and astrology.

There is so much more that I can say about this book but space doesn't permit. I would hope that whether you are a tarot reader, astrologer, or just someone interested in the structure of the universe you will consider reading this book.

So glad I bought this book. It is very interesting and the interpretations of the birthdate in relationship to the associated Tarot card was remarkably insightful with surprising accuracy.

So happy to find this in print again. Mine from the '60s was falling apart.
