About the Author
Alexandra Genetti, author and illustrator of The Wheel of Change Tarot, was born in Seattle in 1957 to a single mom who had just received her PhD in Classics. During childhood she was heavily influenced by the stories from ancient mythology that her mother constantly told her: stories from Greece and Rome, from the Bible, and from ancient civilizations far and wide. Alexandra attended the University of Chicago Laboratory School – where she had a very thorough science education – and after graduating from high school, went to Sonoma State College (now University). As an artist, Alexandra had always been drawn to a place closer to the natural world, with native trees, hills and oceans.
With a major in Art History, Alexandra also took a few studio Art classes (though never in watercolor) and many in philosophy with Stanley V. McDaniel, who wrote the afterword to The Wheel of Change Tarot companion book.
Besides teaching Astronomy at a Waldorf methods charter school, Alexandra now spends much of her time creating detailed and unique fabric art, many pieces featuring extremely fine embroidery. She lives on 120 acres off the grid in rural NW Sonoma country with her husband, family and two cats.

What People are Saying About This
Alexandra Genetti's fine Wheel of Change Tarot deck is often achingly beautiful to behold. Her symbols are well-chosen and her execution always good, sometimes great. Her book is warm and intelligent, itself a remarkable accomplishment of scholarship of the lore of Pagan folk worldwide and across time. For longtime classical readers, the Wheel of Change Tarot is stimulating and challenging.
