Today on the A Pinch of Magick podcast I’m joined by author and tarot deck creator Alice Grist.
This episode is for you if you’ve ever been curious about the tarot and want to know how to explore, or work deeper with the tarot – even if you’ve been a little hesitant to start.
Unfortunately it’s true, that even today there can still be a fear around the tarot. Especially with many films or TV shows adding to this, as they only show tarot in a light that suggests imminent danger or death. With characters starting to die or face peril after seeing the Death or Tower cards.
Alice wants to break these ideas and show people how tarot is actually a potent tool for personal transformation, and nothing to be feared.
Alice shares how she first became involved in tarot when her dad, who had been a Vicar, left the church and returned to the things he was once curious about – this included the tarot.
In this episode we discuss:
- How Alice’s personal journey with the tarot evolved
- The common misconceptions of the tarot
- Misogyny and racism around the tarot
- Why people (and society) fear the tarot
- How tarot has put women in places of spiritual power and leadership, whilst many traditional institution still denied women these places
- Alice’s experience of living each card
- Using the tarot to connect with your intuition and learn to trust yourself
- Tarot as a tool for personal empowerment
- Signs and symbolism all around us
- Using oracle cards with the tarot
- Alice also shares her favourite and most used decks, as well has handy tips on how to find the perfect deck for you
Author, tarot deck creator and expert. Alice has been working with tarot for thirty years and most recently co-created the new international deck Rebel Heart Tarot. Alice reads and teaches tarot internationally.
