Pamela “Pixie” Colman Smith – A “Rich” Soul Whose Works & Life Continue to Inspire Millions
The life and works of Pamela “Pixie” Colman Smith came up again this weekend on Sunday night as the Supermoon was rising, just hours before its heightened illumination that following morning. I was prompted by conversations over Tarot readings we were doing with our visiting friend, Janet, and for some reason was led to discuss her, which pulled me into a deep soulful place. Due to this circling back of her life reflections and how things tied into the next phase of my own current life’s work, I felt guided to reshare this post. I hope you enjoy it. A way to honor women’s creative contributions that have gone unnoticed or devalued, and a reminder to step up things to shift into a new paradigm that no longer suppresses and hides the Sacred Feminine’s value.
I’ve been meaning to share about this soulful creatrix and today inspiration led me to do so, first in an article by Beth Maiden, honoring her works and spirit, followed by my own collected shares below.
This is a wonderful article and tribute to the artist, Pamela Colman Smith (also known as “Pixie” or “PCS”) of the most widely known Tarot deck in the world, the Rider Waite Tarot – now referred to by many as the Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot, as people have come to honor Pamela’s name, where for a long time it had been omitted.
The article is a celebration not only of Pamela, but also of the creative arts (which she lived her life constantly immersed in and channeling), of the contributions of women, and the value and honor both are deserving of in helping to shape the world and the foundations it is built upon.
