Pam Ciampi & Douglas Barker
TAROT & ASTROLOGY: the Union of Two Hermetic Arts
September 13, 2013
7:30 p.m.-10 p.m.
Joyce Beers Community Center, Hillcrest
Admission: general, $12; members, $7
Tarot is no stranger to many astrologers, many of whom are enthusiastic Tarot readers. Astrology and Tarot are both Hermetic arts with a common metaphysical background and origin. But can the practicing astrologer make use of Tarot in the counseling process?
Between them, Pam Ciampi and Douglas Barker bring over half a century's combined experience in both of these occult sciences to this presentation.
They will examine the mysterious and fascinating history of Tarot, the correspondences between the two systems (according to the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn) and a card layout that combines Tarot with the astrological houses.
Their presentation will also demonstrate how to use your birthdate to find the card that illuminates your spiritual path through life.
