Llewellyn Publications (P.O. Box 64383-0383, St. Paul, Minn. 55164-0383; 800-THE-MOON) presents two new self-help titles in July. Tired of being told to administer sedatives instead of backrubs to save time and weary of participating in ""the war against death"" in her nursing career, professional tarot consultant Christine Jette turned to alternative treatments that ""focus on the mind-body connection, as both a cause and a cure of illness."" Tarot for the Healing Heart: Using Inner Wisdom to Heal Body and Mind offers spiritual counseling on meditation, developing psychic ability and holistic wellness practices, and 10 original tarot arrangements for healing. Illus. In Astrology & Relationships: Techniques for Harmonious Personal Connections, David Pond (Chakras for Beginners), a professional astrologer and yoga teacher, eschews the notion that certain signs are incompatible and contends that ""all relationships can improve... once we learn to accept and compensate for our differences."" The ""patterns of the planets... through the heavens... just as your life experiences, are ever changing, never to repeat themselves, yet harmony exists."" Pond tracks the planets through the zodiac, providing, with exercises, a model for self-exploration and relationship development.
