A Jungian Approach to Tarot
accessing the archetypes, encouraging individuation
What is The Tarot?
The Tarot is a system of visual symbols. The symbols in the Tarot allow you to connect with an intuitive knowledge that helps resolve inner conflict.
What are Archetypes?
Archetypes are psychic patterns that have a formative influence on you and your experiences in the world. Archetypes are shared by all humans.
What is individuation?
Individuation is to become more + more undivided within the Self. The goal of any inner work is individuation. Individuation is the process of Life.
A Jungian Perspective on Tarot
My Tarot offerings draw upon my experience as a Jungian Creative Depth Coach and offer you new ways to find meaning, answers, solutions and understanding for the situations, questions and needs you’re experiencing right now.
The conscious, the personal unconscious, the archetypes of the collective unconscious, the needs of the ego, dream work, integration of anima and animus, shadow, complex root stories and mytho-poetic language are incorporated to your reading.
Tarot is a powerful, visual and archetypal system that is loved the world over for its wisdom, insight and accuracy.
Secure Zoom meeting with two cameras so you can see the spread of cards as well as interacting face to face for a complete and rich experience.
The moment we engage with a symbol we tap into the deep waters of the collective unconscious and the field of knowledge, wisdom and understanding built up over centuries that surrounds and supports that symbol.
To offer that symbol, its interpretation and application, to a current situation, and place it into the consciousness of another person is indeed a sacred moment.
The Tarot offers a potent way to enter into the mundis imaginalis where the archetypes reside. The Tarot reader is the querent’s guide into that world. The exchange between reader and client rises to the level of psycho-spiritual and should be entered into as such.
Tarot is a beautiful and sacred way to explore both your inner world and the larger forces that guide, shape, energize and sometimes thwart you. Engagement with this process brings greater self-knowledge and wise insights into Self and Psyche.

Wisdom and esoteric truths are passed down to help us recognize ourselves. These tools provide us with a better understanding of our own minds. Tarot with its system of archetypes, such as the Fool, the Magician, and the High Priestess, is there to help us find our own relflection within the cards.
