Demystifying the Major Arcana: A Virtual Class
Saturday, December 7, 2019
2-4pm EST
Tuition: $110

Class description: The 22 major arcana cards represent themes that all humans encounter on the journey to self-discovery. Whether we understand this path as one toward individuation, self-realization, enlightenment or otherwise, the things we encounter along the way are remarkably similar. The shared aspect of these psychic experiences is what makes them archetypal.

Traditional interpretations of the major arcana offer both exoteric and esoteric meanings, the former relating to practical, external life and the latter to spiritual, mystical life. Drawing from the fields of psychology and contemporary behavioral therapies, this class will explore a new way of understanding the major arcana through the practical exoteric lens.

We will review each of the 22 cards using Pamela Colman-Smith’s illustrations from the Rider-Waite tarot deck, briefly reviewing the traditional interpretations and then viewing them through the lens of psychology and behavior.

Participants will gain a deeper understanding of the major arcana, a better sense of how to incorporate them in readings, and a peak into the practice of flexibly interpreting tarot using your own areas of interest and expertise.

All levels welcome.

This class is live and will be held via Zoom. It will not be recorded.
