UK Programme

Venue: Holiday Inn, Wrights Lane, Kensington, London W8 5SP 

Hello all,  I hope you are keeping safe and well.
This year we have had to adapt our conference format due to the uncertainty of the coronavirus situation.    This years conference will be smaller than usual, to create more space for each of us. I have cancelled international speakers, as the uncertainty of committing to flights and the current worldwide situation, I did not want this to be a stressful issue as the conference approached. We now have our line up for the 2020 Conference, and if I say so myself it looks amazing. Also, I have arranged something VERY special for our Friday evening gathering, and I know this conference will be incredibly special. To confirm … as of this moment WE ARE going ahead, I think we all accept this could possibly change, but my cards are telling me it will be ok for us to proceed!!   I will of course keep you updated.

The New Moon sees the veil between the worlds at its thinnest, while the Full Moon brings all our emotions up to the surface, to be dealt with. Yasmin takes you through the hows and whys of making magical spreads using her cards at the time of the New and Full Moon. When should you do them? Which questions should you ask?

Juliet Sharman-Burke is a practising analytic psychotherapist who has taught tarot and astrology for over 20 years.  She is the author of The Complete Book of Tarot, Mastering the Tarot and, with Liz Greene, The Mythic Tarot card and book set. Workshop: Wishing on a Star – The Star, a vision of hope, may be the one of the most optimistic cards in the deck. We will examine it in all its aspects – its divinatory meaning, its mythology and its psychologically. We will look at number of different decks and images to examine its symbolism in depth, and will also do an exercise in guided imagery to help us find our inner Star when in need of direction.,

Sasha Fenton has been an active member of the British Astrological and Psychic Society (BAPS) since 1982.  She is qualified in Astrology, Tarot and Palmistry.  She is the author of 135 titles mostly MBS subjects.   WorkshopA Practical Approach to Tarot Reading  It’s popular these days for people to believe that Tarot reading is a matter of pure intuition.  This can be the case … and for some Readers, it’s never the case. Not everyone has the kind of imagination that allows them to pick up data just by looking at images. Many of us are logical, practical left-brained people – so for those who sometimes struggle to make the cards yield their secrets, there are methods that can help. The ideas that you will experiment with today will give you something to fall back on whenever your intuitive juices run dry.

John Matthews & Andrea Aste will be launching the Tarot of Light and Shadow.    John Matthews devised the best selling Arthurian Tarot with Caitlin Matthews in the 1980s, selling over 150,000 copies world-wide. Since then he has worked on and devised a number of successful decks including, The Wildwood Tarot (with Mark Ryan), The Lost Tarot of Nostradamus, The Steampunk Tarot , The Sherlock Holmes Tarot and The Oracle of Dr John Dee. His latest decks include The Cather Tarot,  The Byzantine Tarot with Cilla Conway, and the soon to be released Tarot of Light and Shadow with Andrea Aste.      Andrea Aste’s  Book of Shadows Tarot was released in a limited edition to great acclaim in 2016. The product of more than five years work, it presented a whole world of background information, story, and a 90 minute film, written, directed and animated by the artist. He continues to develop several new decks, including The Tarot of Light and Shadow with John Matthews, and The Oracolarium, developed with Neil Kelso.
