I have, many times! I wonder what's holding me back? Not many tigers around here, of course. I would love to be a Grandmistress.

Now Grandmistress is a word that conjures up dungeons, leather, whips - and maybe a begging Aleister Crowley on his knees. Down, boy, down I say!

Oh yes.... Could you imagine what a reading with him would be like?

Ohhh..I'm being a total bad girl right now, but I bet he would use the Manara deck...

Yes, a rocky horror deck would be soooo cool.

But, we are getting off the subject.

Another extreme example of a grandmaster would be this...(another crowley picture of course)...

After looking at the list posted by Fulgour


The list include several names that I know, and those people would certainly qualify as being "trained, professional, knowledgable about the cards and their history, sensitive, and very good at reading cards so as to be likely to help people with questions and concerns." There are a few names that certainly qualify but which are not on that list. There are a few names that seem quite questionable considering the other aspects of their public lives that we know of.

But, if I was to seek a reading from someone with that title I know I'd expect the level of reading and advice I'd get from Mary Greer or Rachel Pollack. They would most certainly be worthy and representative of the title. Dave

I agree Dave...if I was getting a reading from a 'grandmaster' I would surely be expecting something very 'profound'...but the title 'tarot grandmaster' doesn't have the word 'psychic' or 'prophet' before of after it...so one would have to remember these folks are just tarot loving folks just like us who have chosen to seek some formal education in their tarot study.

A reading with Mary Greer or Rachel Pollack would be a dream come true....but it would probably end up being more of a teacher - student experience for me...because I look up to them so.

But what is that on his head?
does he keep the deck in there?

And he looked so lovely in the first pic...
See? being a tarot Grandmaster makes you get old and ugly and wear silly things on your head.

Now, personally, I have a certificate to show that I am the Arch Mistress of the Order of the Tarot Penitents of Lyonesse.

If anyone else wants to be something like that, I can do you a certificate too.
