Tarot Myth-Busting at “Carry It Forward”

in Tarot, Virtual Deck & Book Tour

christaI met the lovely Christa Gallopoulos at Jennifer Louden’s women writers retreat in Taos in July, and shared some of her spectacular photographs with you in this blog.  I particularly love this article/interview because it’s directed at Christa’s non-tarot audience, and I get the opportunity to bust a few myths about the tarot.

Here’s a brief excerpt from the interview:

In late July, after a day of driving all over Taos, I arrived back at the Mabel Dodge Luhan house and walked up the steps with a woman I had never met.  She was dressed in colors I loved, and although she was road weary, too, there was something about her that I was drawn to immediately.  As our retreat started and we spent some time together, I got to know Joanna, and now it feels as if I have known her forever.  She is a beautiful woman, inside and out – kind, gentle, bright, strong and has a fabulous laugh.  We share a great love of nature and of walking in the world in our own way.  I was intrigued to learn that Joanna had just released a brand new Tarot deck, Gaian Tarot, and as we wrote and read and laughed that week, her deck sold like hotcakes.

Tarot is not something I knew a lot about – in fact, I had been warned against it as a child and grew to see it as “other”.  I am guessing I may not be alone on that front.  Given, though, that I am all about moving through fear lately and the fact that I was eager to learn as much as I could about anything new on that trip, I was full of questions for Joanna.  . . .
