Tarot Classes 2017

Lunchtime Tarot

 

The tarot cards are a mysterious tool with great potential for helping you tap into your own intuition. Learning the meanings for 78 cards is a daunting task when you approach them individually. The description of the suit, coupled with the number on the card in the minor arcana is hard enough to remember let alone trying to put it all together in a reading.

The cards are meant to evoke your imagination, to speak subtly through symbols and images. Sometimes all you need is a good guide to prompt you into seeing the connections right in front of your eyes.

Let me be this guide for you. Come explore the tarot cards through storytelling. Be amazed at the correlations between your inner and outer world. Learn to use the cards to express what you might not be able to put into words.

In this experiential class, we will use the cards in a backwards fashion. You tell the story before choosing the cards. We all share similar human experiences – love, anxiety, motherhood, discipline, confusion, crisis, healing, exploration, desire, the list is endless.

Put images to your experiences while learning the messages in the cards.

This class is open to all levels and interests. If I could go back in time, I wish I would’ve learned the meaning of the cards intuitively before delving into the assigned meanings.

That said, this approach has helped me deepen my understanding and connection to the symbols.

Come join an interactive group of curious seekers.

Minor Arcana: Suits and Numbers

$250

The minor arcana are composed of four suits: swords, cups, wands and pentacles. Each corresponding to a particular element and each containing a specific number. The minor arcana describe the external conditions in life and how they affect and shape the deeper spiritual lessons illustrated in the trumps.

The minor cards also help understand how and why surrounding circumstances unfold as they do. The surface of life is colorful, chaotic and malleable. The minor cards illustrate the everyday dramas and point to hidden possibilities and challenges available in every experience.

Students will learn the meaning of each suit as it pertains to a particular mode of experience: physical, emotional, mental and instinctive. You will also learn the significance of each number and how it modifies the experience. Numbers 1 -10 represent a natural process that unfolds and builds in a particular way.

Students will also learn the significance of the court cards: king, queen, knight and the page as they relate to other people and ones own personality.
