A provocative exploration of the twenty-two Major Arcana that re-envisions these archetypes as beacons that illuminate the various ways racism takes root both in ourselves and in the world and how these insights can be turned into self-awareness, self-love, and positive social action.

Tarot has always been a powerful guide for introspection and inner work, so what better tool to use when we're ready to do the really hard work? Author Maria Minnis takes a radical new look at the Major Arcana in this tarot workbook, which provides readers a unique, personal understanding of systemic racism--and what steps we can take to begin to dismantle it. This is a book for anyone who has been overwhelmed, outraged, or frustrated and asked, "But what can I do?" It is a book for anyone ready to look within and do the uncomfortable inner work necessary to demolish everyday racism. This book says tarot can be a tool for action, one that may offer great satisfaction as well as great difficulty, all while pushing you out of your comfort zone.

You'll explore the Major Arcana to uncover how each archetype can help cultivate a freer, anti-racist world. The book highlights some of the reversed, shadow aspects of each Major Arcana card in relation to the different ways that racism shows up in our lives. It will consider the upright, or benevolent, aspects of each card and how readers can use those themes to dismantle internalized racism, racism in our relationships, and racism in our communities. As you move from the Fool to the World card, you'll discover that everything we do ripples beyond us, and that there are practical ways to change our actions and perspectives.

This is a book that speaks to both white and BIPOC audiences. For BIPOC, it explains how the shadow aspects and card energy have shown up or manifested in the internal and external life. For white people, the books shows how those same aspects can become an educational process to help identify how they've been part of the problem and can be part of the solution. The author addresses the human community as a whole and how racism affects our relationships to each other, to our communities, and to our institutions. For all readers, this book addresses how the energy can be turned around into self-awareness, self-love, and positive action.
