Tarot: A Rosicrucian Approach

  • Aug 18, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • Rosicrucian Cultural Center of New York City

The Tarot is of perennial interest to students of esotericism. Its compact symbolism and connections to other Mystical Paths continue to intrigue us.

In this workshop, we will consider the Major and Minor Arcana of the Tarot from a Rosicrucian Perspective, seeing how they connect with Kabbalah, Alchemy and Meditation. After having taken a look at the history of Tarot, workshop participants will then have a chance to consider the symbolism of the Trumps and Suits, and to begin to develop a personal numerology, which comes from their own experience, as well as from the Primordial Tradition. 

The facilitator of this workshop, Steven A. Armstrong, M.A. Hum., M.A., M.Div., is a professional historian, philosopher, and teacher based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He currently serves at the Grand Lodge (San Jose) in Membership Services. He is an active member of both the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC and the Traditional Martinist Order and has served as an officer in both Orders. 

His current areas of interest include how the Primordial Tradition permeates all world traditions, and the way in which the Rosicrucian and Martinist Paths provide a unique and unifying viewpoint on those traditions. 

Author of more than 30 published papers, articles and podcasts, and a lecturer for the RCUI, he is no stranger to NYC as he received two of his Master's Degrees at Fordham's Rose Hill Campus, and did his undergraduate work just north of New York at Yale.

    The "curious dance" of The Fool, the beginning and the end, standing still at the center of it all, yet everywhere at once. If I took nothing else away from our workshop, I finally understand that we are ALL on The Fool's journey.

    However, after 15 years of self-study of the Tarot I feel my true exploration has just begun, to now include the Kabbalah and other esoteric principles, as a new source of wisdom, prayer, and meditation in my use of the Tarot for divination. I've only been waiting, I dunno, most of my life to study the Tarot in a Mystical Workshop, and so very thankful to have participated!
