ARCHETYPES AND TAROT Workshop 1 of 2, With Judy Anne Morse and Belinda Gore
September 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT$1.00 – $30.00
This will be a two-part workshop. Scroll below to register for Part 1, please.
Tarot is a wisdom teaching expressed through 78 cards known as the Major and Minor Arcana, or Mysteries. While Jung did not write about Tarot, the “Fool”s Journey” through the Tarot leads us through the path of individuation. It is a teaching that can be used as a sacred oracle, a focus for meditation, and spiritual path for living.
In Part One of this two-part workshop, you will learn:
- The history of Tarot;
- The structure of the Tarot deck, with suits, court cards and trump cards;
- The differences among the three major types of decks – Marseille, Rider-Waite, and Thoth;
- The archetypal significance of the numbers and elements in the Minor Arcana (similar to a regular deck of playing cards);
- How the Major Arcana track an archetypal path of initiation or individuation;
- Four simple well-known “spreads” for using Tarot for guidance based on Jung’s concept of synchronicity: a single card spread, a three card spread, the Celtic Cross, and the Emperor’s Square.
We will conclude with an exercise in which you can determine your personal soul card and personality card from the Major Arcana. These are your guiding archetypes.
Part Two includes these topics:
- Differentiating Tarot from oracle cards;
- Integrating the guidance from a reading through journalling, collage, poetry and storytelling;
- Learning about the influence of the “family” cards, also known as the court cards;
- Layering the meaning of each card using correspondences with sound, color, astrology and Kabbalah;
- How to choose a deck for yourself and how to personalize your deck;
- A review of recommended resources: books, websites, and major companies that publish Tarot decks.
