In the spirit of the season fees are waived for this event, but contributions to defray the cost of the feast will be much appreciated.

Once again it’s time for members and friends to gather and celebrate another year gone by, another new year dawning as the circle comes around again. We’ll have our traditional buffet, again overseen by Vice President Francoise Richards. Refika Elibay will play seasonal selections on the piano, and Katherine Mylenki will do a reading, not yet selected at press time, perhaps from Jung’s Red Book, perhaps from the Charles Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol.

Presenter: Katherine Mylenki, Actress, Poet, Tarot Seeker
Katherine Mylenki has been interested in tarot for many years and recently began a serious study of the many elements involved in reading the cards. She is pleased to be able to share some of what she has learned with our members and friends.

Tarot cards date back to the Fifteenth Century in Italy. The cards involve many systems: astrology, numerology, alchemy, Kabbalah, archetypal symbolism and active imagination. The 22 cards of the Major Arcana symbolize the journey of the Fool to Wisdom. The 56 cards of the Minor Arcana represent the more mundane experiences of life, and are the basis for present-day playing cards.

Jung interested himself in tarot when his work on synchronicity intersected with astrology. Seeking people versed in that subject, he found four women who were interested in astrology because of tarot. He worked with them to learn what he might about a system that contained so much “meaningful coincidence.”

The four tarot suits are connected to the ancient basic elements, Fire, Water, Air and Earth as well as to the astrological signs, numerology and alchemical transformation. There are many different decks, and all aspects of their design have much to tell both reader and querent (the one who asks the question). Katherine finds that the more she works with the cards, the more there is to learn. She is enjoying her journey and finds the cards very helpful in pointing her in the right direction, and steering her away from the wrong ones.

Please join us to learn something of this time-honored journey of the Fool, of Life.
