Author Of So Potent Art

Event:  Presentation at Northwest Tarot Symposium: Reading the Marseille Tarot Pips: Skills from Earlier Centuries with Caitlin Matthews


Saturday, October 23, 2021 11AM Pacific Daylight Time

Since the Waite-Smith deck of 1909, we have become accustomed to reading the minors by their illustrations. However, up until the time of Etteilla, with exclusion of the Sola Busca Tarot, tarots consisted of 22 Trumps, 40 Pip and 16 Court cards: these were the norm from the early 1400s until the 1780s and beyond. In this session, Caitlín explores two methods of restoring the skill of reading from the Pips to our repertoire. Please have ready a deck with non-illustrated minors with you, such as a Marseilles style tarot so that you can join in: we will start with our decks already mixed together. A pdf to help you practice will be available. The class will be approximately 90 minutes with a Q&A opportunity. Caitlín Matthews is the author of over 80 books, which include Untold Tarot (2019), The Da Vinci Enigma Tarot (2020), Enchanted Lenormand Oracle (2013), The Complete Lenormand Handbook (2014), and The Complete Arthurian Tarot (2014) with John Matthews. She has made a special study of early cartomancy and how to divine from nature. Caitlín teaches divination, shamanism. and ancestral spirituality worldwide.
