Tarot Bytes: The Podcast
Bite-sized lessons for Tarot beginners
Created by Theresa Reed, The Tarot Lady
Welcome to Tarot Bytes – the tarot podcast for people who want to learn tarot…but don’t have all day. Short, bite-sized tarot lessons.
Episode 118: Gate Cards with Rachel Pollack
The mysterious “Gate Cards” were introduced to tarot enthusiasts in 78 Degrees of Wisdom, Rachel Pollack’s groundbreaking book. There are certain Minor Arcana cards that serve as a “gateway.” Rachel writes: “they open up a path from the ordinary world to the inner level of archetypal experiences.”
In this episode of Tarot Bytes, Rachel and I dive into the Gate cards and how to work with them – and somehow we end up talking about Dr. Who. Join us for this informative and delightful conversation!
Rachel Pollack is the author of 40 books, most recently The Fissure King: A Novel In Five Stories. Her book, 78 Degrees Of Wisdom, has been described by Tarot readers and teachers around the world as “the Bible of tarot readers.” She is the designer and artist of the Shining Tribe Tarot, and in recent years has worked with artist Robert M.
