This six-day course on the Tarot is an exploration of the symbolism and the mysteries behind each Aura-Soma Tarot card, which is an expression of an aspect of our process of individuation in relation to the unfoldment of our mission and purpose.
Symbolism is very important in the process of development of consciousness. A true understanding of this symbolism enables us to elevate our daily feelings and experiences into a higher spiritual vibration. The conscious, human mind is not able to fully grasp the complete symbolism of the Tarot. Each card was intricately designed and drawn to include its true meaning through the use of symbols, which are Universally acknowledged through our unconscious minds.
The Swiss psychologist, Carl Jung, saw all of the Tarot images as "descended from the archetypes of transformation" (Jung, 1959/1990, p. 38). These archetypes include several of the primary archetypes that are encountered during Jung's individuation process, which is a process of psychological maturation which allows us to get to know more and more who we are.
The Tarot archetypal symbols comprise the major dynamical components of the unconscious which affect us in many different ways. The understanding of these symbols is deepened as we work on ourselves.
