Tarot is a powerful tool that facilitates the understanding of ourselves and of the circumstances surrounding us, which affect our actions and reactions in everyday life. There are many ways to enter the magical world of Tarot. In this workshop we will explore the use of spreads and the symbology of numbers following the teachings of the Pythagorean tradition, Hermetism, Cabala, and depth psychology.
One of the main goals of this workshop will be to find effective approaches for each of the participants to communicate with their individual guides and teachers with the use of image-concepts and numbers. Images help us establish a direct line of communication with psyche and thus help us navigate the depths of our soul. For the Pythagoreans numbers were sacred, and have continued to be regarded as such in many esoteric traditions. Carl Jung interpreted numbers as archetypal symbols–– archetypes that have become conscious; predestined tools for what he called “orderedness.” We will be exploring these ideas while navigating the individual cosmologies of our tarot decks, gathering impressions, gaining an intuitive understanding of the images, the archetypes that they represent, the symbology of the numbers assigned to them, and their position and sequence in a given spread.
Everything matters in divination because anything can carry a special evocative meaning. If we drop disbelief and allow nonsense and magic to guide us, we will be rewarded with a treasure trove of potentialities and suggestive possibilities.
Bring your own decks and your imagination.
This workshop is open to all levels.
