Julia Turk, Tarot Master
As a picture is worth a thousand words, the 78 Tarot cards contain hidden information about the psyche including myriad archetypes encountered in modern analysis. In 1930, Jung wrote, “Yes, I know of the Tarot. It is, as far as I know, the pack of cards originally used by the Spanish gypsies, the oldest cards historically known. They are still used for divinatory purposes.” These forerunners of our modern cards “are psychological images, symbols with which one plays, as the unconscious plays with its contents...there is a sort of correspondence or a likeness between the prevailing condition and the condition of the collective unconscious.” In this presentation, attendees will learn more about the correspondences in the Tarot cards and their connection to methods of analysis that Jung, if he could have found time in his busy life, would surely have explored in much greater detail.
