Saturday, January 28th-- Ancient Wisdom: Astrology and Tarot
with Jeff Hinshaw
Tarot and astrology are two magical tools for gaining insight into our lives. The tarot with its yin qualities (fluid, intuitive, conceptual), and astrology with its yang qualities (structured, analytical, scientific), make for a powerful pairing. Their combination can help us dive even deeper into understanding our place in the world.
In context of history, astrology plays a major role in the interpretation of tarot cards, deriving from the Golden Dawn tradition. The order of the major arcana cards and the symbols all point directly towards astrological significance. However, the application of tarot in the interpretation of astrological charts, is far less researched, understood, and incorporated.
In this 2-hour workshop, you will gain a deeper understanding of how to use the tarot as tool to further understand, visualize, and embody your natal chart. You will learn a brief history of the relationship between Tarot and Astrology, be led through guided meditations, engage in discussion, and zoom in on your natal chart through the lens of the tarot. With the guidance of Jeff Hinshaw, tarot reader and founder of the Brooklyn Fools Learning Community, you will walk away with a better understanding of tarot, astrology, and yourself.
In this three hour immersion we will journey though the 12 astrological houses exploring our Sun, Moon, Venus, Mars, and Ascendant/Rising Signs. Through an in-depth exploration, meditation and discussion you will leave this workshop with a greater understanding of Astrology, your own chart and the wisdom of the Tarot.
