In Episode 28 of our orig­i­nal series, “Tarot @ Teatime”, Hon­ey and Wil­low explore the cor­re­spon­dences between astrol­o­gy and the twen­ty-two cards of the Major Arcana of the Tarot as con­ceived by the Her­met­ic Order of the Gold­en Dawn, the late 19th cen­tu­ry mag­i­cal order that had a great influ­ence on the pop­u­lar­i­ty of the Tarot as well as build­ing on its eso­teric significance.

The  pro­gramme airs on Thurs­days and Sun­days at noon and 4pm SLT/Pacific from Octo­ber 1st to the 12th.

Tarot @ Teatime — Episode 33: The Occult Tarot

As far as we know, Tarot cards were not used for div­ina­tion until the late 18th cen­tu­ry. French occultists drew togeth­er the threads of secret knowl­edge that formed the West­ern Mys­tery Tra­di­tion. We look at that tra­di­tion and exam­ine how occultists in France and Britain linked it to the Tarot, for­ev­er chang­ing the appear­ance of the cards and the ways in which they are read.

Episode 33 pre­mieres on Thurs­day May 26th at 12 noon and 4pm /SLT Pacif­ic Time (8pm and mid­night in the UK) and is repeat­ed at the same times on Sun­days and Thurs­days up to and includ­ing June 5th.
