    In this talk, we will look into the worldview of the O.T.O. and in particular into the metaphysical notions contained in the ecclesiastic arm of the O.T.O. and its central public and private ritual, the Gnostic Mass (“Liber XV”). We will also introduce the practice of lectio divina and propose the practice of memorization as a magical technique applied to the “Credo” section of The Gnostic Mass.

  • Tarot and Astrology

    2024-03-30  17:00 - 18:00

    Daughter of Sunset Lodge, Vancouver BC

    This is a public online event.

    There are several ways in which the Tarot cards and astrological data interrelate. All the seven classical “planets” as well as the twelve signs of the zodiac are associated with corresponding Major Arcana, the Court Cards, and the Small Cards of the Tarot deck.  Their attributes are crucial for the interpretation of the pictorial symbolism of the cards. In this lecture, we will look in more detail into the connections between Tarot and Astrology.  Our framework will be the scheme of the Tree of Life, specifically a model developed in the traditional Golden Dawn – The Tree of Life as Projected into Solid Sphere.
