6 WEEK TAROT COURSE – THE MAJOR ARCANA


An Archetypal Approach to the Major Arcana

Carl Jung’s only reference in his Collected Works to the Tarot states that the cards were ‘distinctly descended from the archetypes of transformation’.  The cards, especially the Major Arcana through symbolic art reveal stages of an archetypal journey.  As an archetypal journey, it suggests the processes represented by each of the 22 cards will, in some way, be encountered by each individual on their life path.

Whether we meet these experiences in ourselves, or through projection onto others, their archetypal essence suggests that they are aspects of our psychic makeup.  As Jung notes each of these cards may also be essentially transforming by nature.  As we work with each card and come to know its deeper meaning a richer understanding of the process in our own individual lives is available.

In this course the Major Arcana of the Tarot will be explored through the traditional wisdom of Tarot meanings associated with these cards as well as encompassing the comparative associations of mythology, symbology, numerology, astrology and kabbalah.

Using the cross cultural images that appear in various tarot decks including the Rider-Waite and Mythic Tarot, each Tarot card will be fully amplified to illuminate its archetypal pattern and its process in the human experience. 


We shall follow the archetypal journey of the Fool through the trials, labours and initiations of incarnation.  Stages of the life experience shall become evident contributing to a deeper understanding and appreciation of our personal path.  Essentially our exploration of the

journey into the Major Arcana will be a journey into the self.

 CONDUCTED OVER TWO FULL DAY SATURDAY WORSHOPS

The 40 Minor Arcana cards of the Tarot can be seen as the function cards.  They show the way in which we process the archetypal experiences of the Major Arcana from a spiritual, emotional, mental and practical perspective.    They are rich in symbology and meaning.

In this course we shall study these cards in depth learning to understand their meanings from the number on the card, the symbolic art work, the colours used and the psychological interpretation of their meaning.

The format used will be the Tree of Life which shows the process of energy from spirit being manifested in  reality.

The decks used to explore these cards will be the Rider Waite deck and the Mythic Tarot deck.
