Tarot Intensive: History and the 4 Suits

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This PowerPoint presentation focuses on the tarot in segments: Tarot History, Swords, Wands, Cups, Pentacles. (A brief intro to the Major Arcana and using Oracle cards will be included if time permits). Varying tarot decks will be highlighted to illustrate the variety found in decks but narrowing interpretations through traditional symbolism. Special attention will be given to Golden Dawn meanings as well as the esoteric symbols on the cards. We will examine the numbers across suits, such as what all 2s have in common, etc. At the end of each suit overview, participants will read with only the suit we just covered by answering simple questions that I will present at the end of each suit. Knowing how to phrase questions will also be discussed, for example in reading court cards; Is it a person or situation? A take home worksheet for practice will be provided for personal practice. Participants are asked to bring their tarot decks if they have some and to organize as all Swords: Ace to 10; Wands: Ace to 10; and so on.
