Mass Tarot Society Meeting – 9/17/11 – “Archetypes in Tarot” – Featuring surprise decks!


Led by Keri-Ann Aubin, MTS members reached into Keri’s grab-bag of decks to find unfamiliar ones to work with. Keri led explorations of the same card through the many decks around the table, and participants looked for similarities and differences.

Some of the similarities were explored as archetypes.


Keri-Ann emphasizes the importance of trying to identify the archetypes underlying each image.

Differences led to some interesting discussions about the choices made by the deck’s creators.

Keri spent time arguing for the exploration of archetypes, and once the decks were spread out, the real hunt (and fun) began.


Attending: George, Michelle, Keri-Ann, Carolyn, Paris, Connie, Maureen, and Marcianna.
