Workshop: Joan Charles: “The 50 Shades of Tarot”    Our lives are woven into the intricate tapestry of life and the tarot is a wonderful tool to assist us in uncovering that which is hidden in its deep fabric. The sensual and sexual side of our nature is as important as any other area and as such one which we will be exploring in my workshop “The 50 Shades of Tarot” I will be using the tarot to look at various aspects of sexuality and in the workshop you will also have the chance to see how and what this means for you. It’s not for the faint hearted, it will be fun and perhaps we can all learn a thing or two from this session.

Joan will be available for readings throughout the day

TABLE TALK with Steven Bright (Free)  Allowing the cards to be versatile is one of the things that many readers find difficult. While they may understand what the 3 of Swords can mean when referring to an existing or forthcoming situation, working out who the card could be if it depicted a person can be less easy to figure out. Similarly, understanding what the Knight of Cups might suggest as an activity, rather than a person, can leave some tarot students stumped. In my book ‘Tarot: Your Personal Guide’, I provide examples for both a situation and personality-type for all seventy-eight of the cards. In this talk, I will provide some examples about how the cards can be read with a little more flexibility and imagination.

Table Talk with Debbie Bacci (Free) Alchemy of the Splendor Solis Tarot  Practising Alchemy through the correspondences of Elements, Astrology and the Tree of Life. Debbie will talk about this magical deck, her alchemical art in collaboration with author Marie Angelo, and Alchimia Publishing. Splendor Solis Tarot box set available.
