I love teaching, and I love teaching Tarot! Just finished the first class with a brand-new group of learners. Four women of various ages and inclinations agreeing to work together to absorb the principles of this ancient art. What could be more beautiful? More important? More fun?
The class is in three 2-hour sessions. This first session is about Tarot in general, answering questions, sharing concepts and information, working with the Minor Arcana – and playing with lots of my decks, and with the decks each learner brings. So we had a terrific time.
It’s especially fun to watch people picking different numbers of cards from different decks with different questions – and ending up with consistent answers over and over again. One of my favorite things about Tarot. The card of the evening – which showed up in almost everyone’s readings at least once – was The Hierophant. Religion / spirituality, rules and structure, rigidity. It has represented the pope since Tarot was created, in France, in the 13th-14th century. A good reminder of how stuck we can get with the ‘good’ old days, and why guidelines work better than fixed and stagnant beliefs.
What a wonderful evening! Thanks, Universe!
