There are many traditions surrounding the history and use of the tarot. In the Brotherhood of Light tradition the tarot card images were originally derived from bas-reliefs found in the subterranean initiation chambers of the Egyptian Mystery School. These images comprise the Royal Path of life and provided insights on the evolution of the soul back towards spirit after its descent into matter. In this Intensive weekend we will concentrate on the use of tarot in divination, or foreknowledge of the future. The student will learn the basic meanings for each of the major arcanum, minor arcanum, and court cards.
