View all copies of this ISBN edition:

The Major Arcana of the Tarot of the Crone represent times when the Crone is speaking directly to your soul. Rather than addressing an aspect of everyday life as in the Minor Arcana cards, the Majors require you to look at the deeper forces working within and upon you. They are challenging and powerful opportunities when they appear in a reading. In the Minor Arcana, the numbered cards represent qualities or aspects of our magical, emotional, mental and mundane lives. They are identified by the combination of their Element (Fire, Water, Air, Earth represented as Wands, Cups, Swords and Disks) and their Number (Ace through Ten). The court cards represent the different faces of the Crone among the Elements, different expressions of Elemental power. Her faces are Beast, Witch, Grandmother and Shadow.

About the Author:

Ellen Lorenzi-Prince has been a reader and teacher of Tarot for over 15 years. She is the artist and designer of the Tarot of the Crone, a sold-out, limited-edition deck, which will be coming back into print in 2007. She writes tarot-related articles, poetry, short stories and meditations for herself and for several online study groups, as well as for printed newsletters. Her latest tarot is Pandora s Tarot, which can also be seen on her site Croneways.


Tarot of the Crone is vivid, exciting, and wholly original. The art and ideas are compelling, sometimes humorous, sometimes deeply emotional, but always fascinating --Rachel Pollack

Ellen Lorenzi-Prince's Tarot of the Crone is a re-membering of our most primal instincts of who we are and why we are here. This deck is truly unique and bold, plus it speaks to the deepest parts of the psyche. Tarot of the Crone is not for everyone. It is only for those who dare to learn directly from the Ancient Ones, for those who dare to brave a journey through power and nightmare, truth and shadow, fear and transformation to understanding. --Mary K. Greer

Tarot of the Crone is the Tarot equivalent of Clarissa Pinkola Estés's Women Who Run with the Wolves in its celebration and acknowledgment of the ancient feminine in all our lives. Tarotists of all ages have been waiting a long time for this kind of deck. No one can casually look at, or work with, the cards in Ellen's deck because each of her 78 paintings is like a dream message. It draws you deeply into one or more aspects of the Crone archetype and awakens you to its effect on your own life. Ellen defines the Crone as holding the power of time and transformation. Without knowing this one of my students, an experienced Tarot reader for some 30 years, said the cards were so provocative that he could spend hours with each card, listening to what it evoked within. This is truly a deck that will take you beyond what you think you know about yourself. --Sandra A. Thomson, Ed.D., CTGM
