Who actually designed the Rider-Waite Tarot cards? Did A. E. Waite unfairly take too much credit for the deck illustrated by Pamela Colman Smith? In this two-part webinar we’ll examine the evidence. It seems pretty clear that Waite had something very specific in mind for the Major Arcana, so do the Minors belong to Smith? Join Mary K. Greer for a bit of historical detective work as she seeks to make the cards richer and deeper. This pictorial journey through the cards and peek into the lives of Waite and Smith will increase your own appreciation of the deck and enhance your work as a tarot reader.
In these two master-classes, Mary examines the evidence which shows there may have been a specific purpose behind the illustrations to the Minor cards. She closely explores stories for each of the suits – for Cups and Wands the stories relate to the Grail and for Swords and Pentacles freemasonry is the source. The result is a whole new perspective on where the Minor Arcana images and meanings came from, a perspective that can inform your own readings and card interpretations.
