http://photos1.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/b/1/6/4/event_231285412.jpegWhat is the esoteric tarot? The esoteric tarot developed over the 18th and 19th centuries as a way to integrate a variety of symbolic systems including qabalah and astrology with the spiritual development described in the Fool’s Journey. The esoteric tarot allows us to go deeper into the spiritual symbolism of the cards, but also provides techniques for getting practical everyday information in ways that produce very detailed and specific results.
