TWW Tarot Guide Set: Major & Minor Arcana
This listing is for the 2-volume set of The Word Witch Tarot Guides, for 20% less than the two separately!
This zine series lays out the fundamentals of the tarot through my personal queer lens, as a system that aims to unravel all binaries, transcend categorization, and show us that we’re all whole and all connected.
Volume 1 contains a rundown of the essentials of tarot, introducing the elements, the numbers, and the (illusion of) duality, along with thoughts and suggestions on freeing it from gendered language. It then digs into the system of the Major Arcana through the three lines, which I frame as Learning, Unlearning, and Transcending. The zine addresses each of the 22 Majors in the narrative context of the three lines and also provides guide words for interpreting the cards in tarot readings. To top it all off, I provide instructions on the mechanics of a tarot reading and how to read through intuition, exercises for continuing your study of the Major Arcana, and some tarot spreads to get you started!
Volume 2 of The Word Witch Tarot Guide is all about the Minor Arcana, digging into the four suits through the elements, the pips through the idea of number families (including a much more thorough look at the numerology presented in Volume 1), and the court cards as non-gendered modes of being. Guide words are provided for all 56 Minor Arcana cards, with special love given to the oft-confusing court cards. To round it out, I provide exercises for continuing your study of the Minor Arcana and two tarot spreads designed specifically for use with the Minors. (The exercises and spreads are unique from those provided in Volume 1.)
These zines grew out of the workbooks and materials I’ve created for my tarot students since I started teaching tarot in 2018, and they draw on my experience as a career educator, professional tarot reader, and queer non-binary person living in the world.
