Rachel True Interview

“The Craft” Actress Rachel True Is Now A Tarot Expert: Interview

Source: bust.com

When did you first discover tarot and how long have you been practicing? How did you build on your talents?

When I went to live with my father and his new wife at the age of four, I was very introverted and very quiet and very, you know, like rock in the corner kind of kid. They had a huge bookshelf that I called the library and the books that I was drawn to, because I could read at this point—we were taught to read really young age—were Carl Jung’s Man and His Symbols and Nietzsche’s Beyond Good and Evil.

So obviously, I wasn’t really comprehending what these books were saying, but there was something that I was drawn to and understood—the pictures in Jung’s book told a story. I remember when I was about eight or nine, I was aware of these concepts already, because we had hippie friends.

Someone gave me a tarot deck and I was just enamored. It has similar pictures as the Carl Jung book, so it was like “Oh! Okay, Wait, wait, wait! This is a mystery, this is a story—I get this. I understand this. This is the language I speak. I can parse this, maybe, if I look into it.”

Your book is also a memoir. Tell us about the hardships and successes you’ve experienced as an actor.

As a black actor, your auditions are limited. It doesn’t matter if it’s a rocket scientist or a yoga teacher—it’s never those parts because you’re black. I remember in the early ’90s, during my first year in California, and I tested for a really poorly written part set in the South before the war. It was for a slave, and I just felt wrong about it. I would be fine to do a Roots-type of movie or an underground film, but this wasn’t that. I didn’t like it. It didn’t feel right. I decided not to do it.

Tell us about your childhood and what impact it had on you.

As a small child in NYC, I felt like there was so much energy coming at me. My family moved to upstate New York—I missed the energy of the city—and I was the only black girl in my high school. I received the highest score in the history of my high school at the time on my SATs, but I wasn’t seen or accepted because of my race.

What inspires you?

Art. Creating is the ultimate form of expression. I like editing things together to create a collage of different images.

What was your earliest experience with the tarot?

When I moved to LA, I was working—acting in movies and TV shows—all the time. This was early- to mid-’90s. However, I wasn’t focused on my spirituality at all because I was focused on my career. But then suddenly I had time off in between projects. I remember thinking…I need to do something more. Then, I really dug into tarot. Tarot is a “shrink in a box,” acting to answer tough questions and offering different perspectives on situations, while giving advice.

What other hidden talents do you have?

I would like to explore directing—playing with visual images more. Music as well, because music is the most expressive form of emotion.

What other projects are you currently working on?

I have some secret amazing upcoming projects in the works—work I am extremely proud of. I’m not going anywhere!
