"Tarostrology: Using Tarot to Interpret Birth Charts" with John Allen

For many centuries, tarot and astrology have been employed as methods for better understanding our personal dynamics. Many efforts have been made to link these two systems together over time and to use them in tandem. This presentation aims to illustrate one way that cards and charts can inform and support one another. A deeper understanding of your inner and outer workings can be culled from a spread based on your own birth chart.

We will be using the cards as archetypes for planets, signs and houses and then explore these astrological dimensions within the context of a unique 11-card spread, with a focus on three vital points: Sun, Moon and ascendant, with the addition of the chart ruler. By working with both interpretive arts at once, you will not only gain insight into your own personality, but can also identify the signposts of personal evolution.

Be sure to bring the following:

  • At least two of your favorite decks, as there will likely be repeated cards. Plenty of extra decks will be on hand.
  • We will be primarily using the Majors and the Courts, so sorting them out before hand will save time.
  • An accurate birth chart, with the date, place and time as precise as possible. Assistance can be provided for those without charts, but several online services offer charts completely free of charge.

This is a great opportunity for both the seasoned and the novice, whether learning tarot, astrology or both. Please join us in opening new dimensions of divination!

    Just a reminder to anyone who doesn't already have a copy of their birth chart that Astro.com is one easy online resource for a free chart. I'm bringing mine, because I think it will make this so much more fun and interesting! See you then--
