Tarot Bytes Episode 102: Stage Cards with Sasha Graham
If you look closely at some of the cards in the Rider Waite Smith tarot deck, you’ll see that some of the scenes on various tarot cards seem to have a stage backdrop. What’s that all about? Tarot expert Sasha Graham, author of Llewellyn’s Complete Book of the Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot has answers. In this fascinating discussion, Sasha talks about how artist’s Pamela Colman Smith’s theater background might have influenced these images. She also teaches how to interpret these cards. If all the world is truly a stage, then Smith certainly brought that element into the Rider Waite Smith tarot!
Sasha Graham is the author of multiple books, including, Llewellyn’s Complete Book of the Rider Waite Smith Tarot. She teaches tarot around the world and hosts a tarot-inspired cooking show, “Sasha Graham’s Enchanted Kitchen.” Her first tarot deck, Tarot of the Haunted House has just been released.
