Introduction to Tarot, Part 2- To Know, To Dare, To Will, To Be Silent, The Minor Arcana
December 7 @ 11:00 pm - December 8 @ 1:00 am$35.00
Comprising the body of the common Tarot deck, the Minor Arcana calls to us with hauntingly familiar scenes, evoking reactions from nostalgia and elation to frustration and horror. These 56 lurid tableaus show us the ups and downs of the human condition as they manifest in our conscious reality. They reach across generations with their symbols – and their mysteries give us incredible precision when we use them for divination or personal exploration.We’ll look at each tableau as portrayed on the cards and understand them as a system and a sequence that links an understanding of numerology, the classical four elements, and the four dimensions of the human reality. This class builds on the understanding developed in Part 1 to complete your understanding of Tarot as a system for divination or as an oracle to consult in your quest for self-knowledge. After completing these courses, you will be able to reliably consult the Tarot for information about yourself and the world around you.
Instructor-Brother Moses is a cultural anthropologist, folklorist, spiritual minister and professional reader and conjure worker based in Colorado.
He has been steeped in his family’s old world folk magic traditions since childhood, and has spent decades studying the religion, spirituality, and magical practices of humans across time and civilizations while staying grounded in contemporary urban spiritual practice.
Working primarily in folk magical traditions–which he terms “the magic of pragmatism”– Brother Moses approaches spiritual work from first principles and core metaphysics, examining magical techniques and technologies to distill essential frameworks and parameters for their operation. By comparing methods, paradigms, and approaches across cultures, he discovers often surprising unities and similarities in magical understanding and application across the world and the ages.
Concerned with plants and bones, spirits and folk saints, Psalms and prayers, lamps and candles, amulets and talismans, oils and incense, dolls, jars, bags, dirt, and the other magical tools of everyday life, his conjure is a concentrated blend of the proven traditions and practices of the ancestors who depended on them, and the spiritual and material sciences they observed and derived.
