I attended the 2011 (Tarot) Readers Studio at the end of April 2011. A longtime interest in Tarot led me to sign up for the three-day event in New York City, and I met Joanna Powell-Colbert there. A member of the local Pioneer Valley group, The Massachusetts Tarot Society, Carolyn Cushing (Art of Change Tarot) also made the trip to N.Y., so I asked her if she’d participate in the INNERview as well. Carolyn has been using Joanna’s Gaian Tarot from its publication in March 2010. -- Paris Finley
PARIS: Joanna, you’re a successful, internationally-known artist already, famous for your work. You didn’t really need to put yourself through the long hours and hard work involved in researching and creating a Tarot deck. Whatever possessed you? Did you have some connection to Tarot before the idea of the deck entered your thinking?
JOANNA: “Whatever possessed me?” Good question! Sometimes throughout those nine years of working on the deck, I really did think I was possessed. Or crazy.
But the truth is, I felt like I had a mandate. I was called to create the deck. I couldn’t not do it.
I first started studying Tarot back in college in the early ’70s. I took a detour for a decade or so as a born-again Christian, then discovered the Motherpeace deck and the women’s spirituality movement when I emerged from
