About the Event

This 3-part  class series is designed to create a deeper understanding of the foundation upon which the meanings of the 78 tarot cards are built. Analysis of these esoteric underpinnings are explored with emphasis on those of the astrological and hermetic qabalah traditions. The formula for how to read the Majors, Pips, and Courts are given and a magnifying glass is lifted to each card so that its symbols can be more closely seen.

Class topics include discussions on the astrological decans, the signs and planets, and the elemental triplicities. From a qabbalistic perspective, students can look forward to discussion on the qabbalistic worlds, the 22 Hebrew letters, and even a brief overview of the 10 sephiroth of the tree of life. Through the combination of all this knowledge, the goal with this series is to leave students with the ability to utilize the formulas and symbols given to develop their own delienations for the cards including but not limited to divinations specific to magical practitioners of various traditions.
