Tarot: The Astrology of the Minor Arcana by local Astrologer, Tarot Reader and Musician, Mick Frankel. Is there a possible connection between astrology and the Tarot cards? What about the astrology of the deck of 52 playing cards that we’re more familiar with? The talk will begin by looking at the four suits as the four elements: Fire, Earth, Air and Water. Then we'll go more deeply into correspondences based around the 12 signs of the Zodiac grouped by element and mode. We’ll finish the session by doing some sample readings using just the astrology of the cards. Please have a set of Tarot cards with you if possible. Otherwise, playing cards are fine too.

Fernanda Paiva is a practicing astrologer with a BA. in History and she acquired her astrology certificate with distinction at the London School of Astrology. She has been published by Flare UK, IAM Infinity magazine, the AA Journal and at the astrodienst website, and she is currently working on her masters’ thesis for the MA in Cultural Astronomy and Astrology at the University of Wales. Fernanda is originally from Brazil but has been living in the UK for the past 13 years and she did her first talk at the Astrological Association Conference in 2020 on the Astrology of The Handmaid’s Tale.
Her talk is entitled: The Art of interpretation, finding themes in the Horoscope. In order to learn how to read horoscopes we have to first consult many of the astrological ‘cookbooks’ and dissect each part of a chart, but how about the important process of bringing it all back together? How does that happen, and would there be a formula that could help us do that more smoothly? In this talk we will be exploring the art of interpreting charts, finding themes in the horoscope, and the role of imagination in this process.
She will be using examples from the audience, so you are welcome to send your birth details to firstname.lastname@example.org with the nickname you would like to use in order to protect your privacy. Fernanda will only be talking about general themes in the horoscope rather than sensitive or private issues, and she will be very respectful as ethics and empowerment are amongst the top priority in her work as an astrologer.
