in this two hour workshop, i'm going to teach you how to read occult symbolism, spanning from alchemical and numerological to religious and astrological, in the waite-smith tarot. the remaining hour will be dedicated to q&a.

tarot, as many of us know, can be read as a story of the fool's journey. it is a mandala, a cycle, a diffusion and reconstruction of source, the prima materia. the more we interact with the symbolism, and familiarize ourselves with the different faces of source and the stories it manifests in, the more we see when we come to the cards with questions about our own story.

in this workshop, you will learn:

  1. how to identify key symbols and archetypes, be they alchemical, occult, religious, etc. in the cards and relate them to your life
  2. numerology and how to incorporate it into your readings
  3. how to imbue yourself, your deck and your every move with intention for every reading
  4. how to release yourself from value judgements and binary thinking (i.e. good vs. bad outlook) and reframe every situation into one with transformative power

overall, this workshop is for anyone interested in symbolism or tarot in general, and is best suited for those already familiar with the tarot and have begun their journey as a reader. there is another workshop being hosted the day before this one for absolute beginners that will give you all the basics if you're just starting out <3

please bring a waite smith deck if you'd like to get the most out of the discussion and participate in readings/demonstrations, and a journal for taking notes.
