For many tarot readers, Rachel Pollack's Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom was a sort of bible. Her newest release, The New Tarot Handbook, offers the same sort of guidance and inspiration. Here tarot expert Barbara Moore explains the book's beauty—and the wisdom of Rachel Pollack.

The High Priestess card is one of the most loved and most mysterious cards in the tarot deck. Its very nature, the way we interpret it, everything about this card suggests the unknowable. And yet we continue to try, as we should, for in the very act of seeking we find something. Perhaps not the answers we hoped for, but something of value. Tarot expert Barbara Moore not only presents some commonly accepted truths about the High Priestess but entertains ideas of her role in the scheme of things.

Learning the meanings of tarot cards is generally not that difficult; even small children can learn to associate a meaning with a particular card or describe what is happening (as far as illustrated Minor Arcana are concerned) in an image. That said, the majority of taroists will agree that the trouble lies in the Court Cards. In this first installment in a series on the Court Cards, tarot expert Barbara Moore delves into the regal Kings of the Tarot.

In "Revitalizing Your Tarot Practice, Part I—Decks," tarot expert Barbara Moore looked at ways of recovering from "Tarot Reader Burnout" by using or incorporating another deck.

The Major Arcana comes to us in a numbered sequence, and over time that sequence has become a vital part of the cards' interpretation. Most tarot commentators do not look to the Magician only for its individual qualities but as card I, the beginning of the journey. For Qabalists, the order of the cards determines what pathway each one occupies on the Tree of Life. And yet, part of the glory of...

This reading—actually four short readings done as a group—was inspired by the Kabbalist concept of the four worlds, with their four Trees of Life and the connections to the four suits of the Minor Arcana. You can actually do this reading as a ritual, though it is not required. Here is how to set up the ritual part: You will need a room with enough space to lay cards out on the floor in four...

Autumn months are always fraught with contradictions for me. Nature overflows with bounty and vibrant color that all too quickly gives way to falling leaves and early frosts; the earth is preparing to rest and rejuvenate. November and December bring the need to review the past year and start thinking of the next. As 2008 winds down, I cannot help but think of all the changes this year has...

Sooner or later you are going to find yourself reading for a friend. Be it a best friend or a new friend, somewhere along the line she finds out that you read cards and she will ask if you would be kind enough to read for her. For me, many of the friends I read for know what the tarot is about; there is no need to explain. Either they are not good at reading cards, or they prefer another style...

The Green Witch Tarot is a dream come true for me. I have been reading cards for people for over fifty years, and in that time I have developed my own style that I have been able to adapt to most any deck. This lengthy experience of working with the cards and interacting with clients has helped me develop my approach to the tarot. Throughout these... read this article
