An Invitation

You are invited to join me on a
Tarot Journey
with a twist.

To engage you need a Tarot Deck. The Rider Waite Tarot Deck is a good one for beginners and a common deck for us to work with.

It is also recommended that, in the first instance, you purchase a copy of Seventy Eight Degrees of Wisdom by Rachael Pollock. I also suggest that you acquire a good book on symbolism. Barbara Walker is a reliable authority on such subjects. In addition I have also ordered Walker's book entitled The Secrets of Tarot.

Very briefly the course will look at using cards to come to really know yourself and your potential as a creative. It is a platform, a vehicle for self exploration and a portal to the collective unconscious. The course will roughly cover

* the history of the tarot
* one card readings
* understanding symbolism and archetypes
* using intuition when reading
* the Major and the Minor Arcana
* using Tarot as a vehicle to promote writing, art and other
creative activities
* framing daily questions to guide writing, art and creative projects
* using symbolism and tarot to break creative blocks.

As we progress through various activities other books will be recommended.

Any purchases made through the Book Depository attract a small commission and help keep Soul Food running.

Please let me know if you plan to engage and journey with me as I apprentice myself and learn the craft myself.


  1. I will plod along as best as I can... but then that's the Fool's Journey, isn't it!


  2. Trust me! The Fool's Journey is a long and winding one and I know I am plodding, willing myself to get going.

  3. A bit work overloaded at the moment, Heather, but this looks totally awesome. Hope to follow on and it is looking really impressive, to say the least!
