Choose your card for the week of 3/16/08

Choose your card for the week from Tarot of the Crone by Ellen Lorenzi-Prince. When making your selection, don’t worry about what the cards mean. Base your choice on the pictures—the stories they tell and how they make you feel. (Clicking on the cards will take you to larger images on the Tarot of the Crone site.)

I love this deck—it speaks to my soul, and the artwork is gorgeous. It was very hard to select only six cards to share with you, but hopefully you will get a taste of how original Ellen’s interpretations are. (I definitely prefer the Tradition card below to the Hierophant!)

This deck replaces the court cards with the Faces of the Crone: Beast (Page), Witch (Knight) Grandmother (Queen), and Shadow.

The second edition of Tarot of the Crone was recently released and can be purchased at The Tarot Connection Shop. It comes with a beautiful pouch  in the color of your choice. The Tarot Connection also has a PDF you can download for free. It includes text that Ellen has written for the deck—even better, you might want to purchase the companion book.

Tarot of the Crone, Moon Tarot of the Crone, Two of Wands Tarot of the Crone, Two of Swords

    I followed your link to the original deck and ended up with the Five of Wands, which looked great to me and is a very nice booster to my rather depressiong card of the day – the five of pentacles…

  2. Susan Gold Says:

    Hi Cathy,

    I’m glad you explored the Tarot of the Crone site. I did a three-card spread this morning, and that Five of Wands turned up. It’s a fun card–and I can see how it has the potential to melt that snow in the Five of Pentacles.

    Thanks for writing in!

  3. Cathy Says:

    I read up on the Five of Wands in the Rider-Waite deck, as something was fluttering around in the back of my mind about it…. The card meaning in that deck is quite different. Is it usual that card meanings vary that muich from deck to deck? I would have thought they tended to be similar across all decks?

    Going with the 4 of cups with these images. Something about feeling a bit alone and internally focused, but there are options nearby if I want to be back in the world.

    This is an interesting deck. I think I may have to give it a second look.

  6. Ellen Lorenzi-Prince Says:

    Hi Cathy, I thought I’d comment on your question regarding the Five of Wands. Some decks follow a Rider-Waite model, some are completely different, some provide a different point of view. The philosophy of my deck, being from the point of view of a crone, is more focused on inward journeys and personal experience than interaction with the outside world.

    The Crone Five of Wands may feel a need to exert her individuality, to get attention, to put herself or her creative vision out there, to generate some drama and excitement in her life – but she does not feel the need to do so by engaging in conflict with other people.

    Hi Ellen,
    thanks for getting back to me and for the further explanation to your Crone Five of Wands!

  9. Susan Gold Says:

    Hello all,

    Thanks for writing in. Great discussion. Ellen, what a treat to have you discuss your philosophy of the Tarot of the Crone and your ideas behind the Crone Five of Wands. I’ve written my response to all this in a new post.
