Tarot for One: The Art of Reading for Yourself Kindle Edition
Courtney Weber has been teaching Tarot and speaking at Tarot symposia around the country for a decade. In response to the numerous requests she has received over the years, Weber created Tarot for One, a personal workbook and resource guide designed to help form interpretations directly applicable to self-readings.
In Weber’s clean, clear style, this book explores the Fool, the Major Arcana, the Court Cards, Cups, Wands, Swords, and Pentacles, as well as what she calls the tough cards, reversals, practice spreads, and next steps. She includes common associations as well as extensive exercises to unlock readers’ own interpretations for connecting personal journeys with the archetypical Tarot. Readers will learn to let the voice of the Tarot come through without overlaying too much of their own “stuff” during a reading.
Tarot for One includes dozens of original Tarot spreads and layouts, which have been repeatedly proven both fun and effective in Weber’s classes and workshops. It also contains tips on finding a deck, honing a Tarot practice, and avoiding common self-reading pitfalls. This is the essential guide for your personal journey with the Tarot.
"Most tarot readers agree: reading tarot cards for others is a snap compared to reading for yourself. Remaining objective is hard, especially when you are emotionally invested in the outcome. Thanks to Courtney Weber's Tarot for One: The Art of Reading for Yourself, you're not going to struggle any longer! With smart exercises, clever spreads, easy-to-understand interpretations and tons of examples, Weber provides the perfect framework for getting out of your own way and uncovering clear, unbiased answers. If you love tarot and have always wanted to be able to read your own cards, this invaluable guide belongs on your shelf." --Theresa Reed, author of The Tarot Coloring Book ― Reviews
"Filled with practical tips, real life examples, and plenty of creative activities, Tarot for One will help you become your own best reader…as well as make you a better reader in general. Weber's firm yet gentle touch will guide you to find truth in the cards and within yourself." --Barbara Moore, author of Your Tarot Your Way, Tarot Spreads, and the Steampunk Tarot ― Reviews --This text refers to the paperback edition.

-How to interpret tougher cards
-Various ways to interpret reversals
-Exercises to help you identify your own associations with all the cards
-Exercises to deepen your relationships with all the cards - I found the exercises for the court cards particularly helpful, as those have always vexed me
-Exercises to compare your life's journey with the journey represented in the Major Arcana

One of my favorite parts of the book is the chapter on reversals. Weber provides some overall guidelines for what reversals can mean, so you don't need to memorize every single card's reversal. Plus she provides a useful exercise for when you're not sure how to read a reversal.
Her section on how to interpret tough cards is also illuminating, as it reminds us that not every card is completely good or bad -- she writes specifically about "relearning the tough cards" (thinking about possible positive meanings for cards traditionally seen as negative) and "the flip side of your favorite cards" (how cards we usually think of as positive can have less-than-positive meanings too).
Last, she includes a variety of spreads to try out, and I appreciate that some of them include deliberate pulls (where you choose a card face up, based on what's on the card) as well as random pulls (where you pull a card at random). The idea of deliberate pulls is powerful as a way of thinking actively about where you want to go with your relationship, your work, or your life -- and then using Tarot to help you get there.
