I’m making an effort to complete the Holistic Tarot companion course video series. Here’s the ninth installment, on tarot history, or more specifically, theories of origin.
While there’s 33 pages of citations for the content of this video, I hope it’s clear that we’re still talking about speculation– hence theories of origins. I started this focused level of research back in 2014, even before Holistic Tarot was published, for a work of historical fantasy. Yes, a novel. That novel I’ve been struggling with, which I hope I can dedicate 2022 to.
I also thought it’d be fun to flash SKT Revelation cards across the screen at the exact moments certain points were being made. =)
These different projects of mine meld together here in this video because in 2020 I took a break from
writing re-writing my novel and made SKT Revelation instead. My novel is not about the tarot. It’s set in the 13th and 14th centuries in the regions this video discusses. But anyone who knows tarot will certainly recognize tarot in the background of the novel.
Anyway, right now I’m thinking two more videos and the Holistic Tarot video series will be complete. There’s also the Tarot Card Meanings with Benebell series I’ve been meaning to finish. I left off on the Sevens and during my hiatus I went and created a new edition of the SKT. According to my own outline I’ve got 8 more videos to go. Gotta figure out how I’m going to make that work. Haha. If you’ve got any ideas, please share. =D
