David Wells is best known for being the TV host on Most Haunted and a Hay House author, his psychic and spiritual connection gifts were activated when, in adulthood, a near death experience allowed him access to other worlds and powers. Since then his on a mission to help others tap into their own innate power trough Past life regression, Qabalah, Tarot or Astrology.
Tarot and Astrology By David Wells Not Tarology, not astro-tarot, no made up name. The alignment between two great magical systems but acknowledging them as equals, powerful in helping the individual traverse this earthly life with spiritual guidance.
Every card can be associated with a planet, sign or astrological event and in this workshop, David will introduce you to the Major Arcana’s astrological alliances and how they can help you not only with client readings but with your own journey into understanding Tarot on a deeper level. You might already use the elements, common to both Tarot and Astrology, and probably know the signs attached to Air, Fire, Water and Earth but taking that a little further the Major for the Fire signs are as follows; Emperor is Aries, Strength/Lust is Leo and Temperance/Art is Sagittarius.
The great wheel of the zodiac has a beginning and an end based on your time, date and place of birth which in turn gives you your rising sign. If you know your rising sign you can then associate a Tarot card to each sector of your life, using the clock-grid. David will take you on a journey using this grid to uncover what each sign, tarot card, says about each sector of your life.
You can find your rising sign here: https://horoscopes.astro-seek.com/ascendant-rising-sign-calculator
There are many other places, just type in ‘what’s my rising sign’ If you don’t know your time of birth this can still be done using your Sun (star) sign.

Gypsies, Superstitions and the Big Bad Wolf! By Kim Arnold
During her research working as a mentor to Geraldine Chaplin playing gypsy Maleva in the Universal Studio Wolf Man film, set in 1891, Kim discovered that the Victorian Gypsy communities were deeply superstitious when it came to reading Tarot cards. During this workshop we explore the superstitions and how the popular spreads we use today, have evolved through the decades. Today we will create our own unique spread guiding us through our most sought after questions.

She is also founder of Global Spiritual Studies, an online learning hub with a wide range of video classes on Tarot, Kabbalah and Petit Lenormand. ‘In 2006 she published a book, Ticket, Passport and Tarot Cards which was followed by a TV series which won an award for the best spiritual/ personal development program on Australian community television.
TarotNaving through Life “If you’ve had a Tarot reading, you’ve experienced the Tarot as a global positioning system, a GPS,’ says Linda Marson. “Using the Tarot as a GPS is both simple and potentially difficult. Simple because all you need to do is ask a clear question, select cards and use your knowledge of Tarot card meanings to identify the best way to reach your destination. Using the TarotNav GPS is potentially difficult because you have to ask the right sort of question, one that puts you in the driver’s seat.” Linda will provide an overview of TarotNav, her unique set of video and written resources about doing Tarot readings for yourself. In honour of 2019 as the year of The Hanged Man (2+1+9=12), Linda will play her video on The Hanged Man to show how following directions from a one-card reading changed her life! With input from participants, Linda will discuss how to formulate clear questions for your Tarot GPS, how to select appropriate layouts, do readings and consider the directions given by your Tarot GPS. Will the roads be clear or will you encounter road blocks and traffic jams as you drive towards your destinations? If you have a Rider-Waite-Smith deck, bring it, but any deck is suitable.

“I just wanted to thank you for the organisation of our own Swiss Tarot Fest. It has been a marvellous day with very fascinating speakers and workshops (not forgetting the wonderful opportunity to book a reading with the speakers!). Even though some of us don’t know the tarot cards as good as you guys do, it was very well explained in the sessions and I had really lots of fun and learned quite a lot (beside spending way too much money shopping at the market!). I’m very much looking forward to the next Tarot Fest here in Switzerland and will most certainly spread the word around. 😉 Kindest regards and thank you again!” Ines
