Women in Tarot Interviews


Women in Tarot: Christine Payne-Towler by Bonnie Cehovet

The last in the Women in Tarot series, Bonnie Cehovet talks with writer Christine Payne-Towler.

"Tarot is an initiatory path whether one approaches it that way or not. The images, the names, the numbers and the overall “pack of spirits” format of the Tarot, they all ensure that it is psychologically sticky. These characters and values get into us and start working on our understanding -- the next thing one knows, they are talking in to the back of our minds and showing up in our dreams! Every student I have tutored experiences this, and I encourage it."   Read more...


Women in Tarot: Johanna Gargiulo-Sherman by Bonnie Cehovet

The second in a series of articles on women in Tarot world from Bonnie Cehovet. The second interview is with Johanna Gargiulo-Sherman, author of Sacred Rose Tarot.

"I met Johanna when I was doing an article celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Sacred Rose Tarot. My fondest wish is that someday I have the honor of meeting Johanna in person. I found her to be intelligent, witty, and to carry a great sense of spirit. I am very pleased that she agreed to be part of this series. It is time to turn the podium over to Johanna."   Read more...


Women in Tarot: Mary K. Greer, CTGM by Bonnie Cehovet

Bonnie Cehovet talks to Mary K. Greer, perhaps the most well-known author and teacher in the Tarot world, in the fifth interview in the Women in Tarot series.

"I had been reading and teaching for years, and had collected a small handful of Tarot decks. I was teaching a class on beginning Tarot and I had an otherwise great student who just couldnt quite get the meaning of one of the cards. I tried explaining the card from many different angles and it was still a no go. Suddenly, it occurred to me to show him the same card from several different decks to see if the combined message might make the meaning clearer. I grabbed a couple of decks, laid out the corresponding card next to the one from the RWS deck we used in class, and I saw the light bulb go on."   Read more...


Women in Tarot: Rachel Pollack by Bonnie Cehovet

The third in a series of articles on women in Tarot world from Bonnie Cehovet. The second interview is with Rachel Pollack, well-known Tarotist and author of many books, including 78 Degrees of Wisdom.

"One of my shorthand definitions of Tarot is "a navigation system for the soul." That is important. I use the cards in difficult situations to give me productive ways to deal with them. But I also use them just to feel connected to Spirit and other worlds. Once, in an emotional crisis, I did a reading where I did not try to find solutions or practical advice. Instead, I just said to the cards "Take me home," and they did just that, reminding me of my spiritual truths."   Read more...


Women in Tarot: Sandra A .Thomson, CTGM by Bonnie Cehovet

The first in a series of articles on women in Tarot world from Bonnie Cehovet. The first interview is with Sandra A. Thomson, CTGM, author of "Pictures From The Heart: A Tarot Dictionary".

"I wanted to peek into the minds of those women who are making outstanding contributions to the field of Tarot, to honor their body of work, and to take a look at what they see for the future of Tarot. Sandra Thomson is a lady who I greatly admire, and consider to be a mentor."   Read more...


Women in Tarot: Valerie Sim, CTGM by Bonnie Cehovet

Fourth in a series of articles on women in Tarot world, Bonnie Cehovet interviews Valerie Sim, creator of the Comparative Tarot list and author of "Tarot Outside the Box".

"I had been reading and teaching for years, and had collected a small handful of Tarot decks. I was teaching a class on beginning Tarot and I had an otherwise great student who just couldnt quite get the meaning of one of the cards. I tried explaining the card from many different angles and it was still a no go. Suddenly, it occurred to me to show him the same card from several different decks to see if the combined message might make the meaning clearer.
