This course aims to give you an overview of the divinatory and symbolic meanings of the whole tarot deck with a view to being able to use the cards to clarify situations and act appropriately
This five session course starts with a brief overview of the Tarot’s origins. We then examine the Mythic Tarot in depth as well as referencing other decks. We look at the meanings, divinatory and symbolic, as well as the myths associated with each of the twenty two Major Arcana. The forty cards comprising the four suits are then discussed, noting their correlation with the astrological elements of Fire, Water, Air and Earth, and the myths associated with each suit. The sixteen Court Cards, Page, Knight, Queen and King, are discussed separately, linking them with the astrological signs and qualities as well as their myths. The final session is about putting it all together with readings which the online students sent in. This course is suitable for beginners as well as more experienced readers who would like a refresher or new perspective.
