Beltane Blessings and Tarot Workshop

Happy Beltane,  Everyone !


It's the merry month of MAYA....
Time to renew vows of being true to your nature, both within and without. Sun, Mars 
and Venus in Taurus say, be yourself, express your own light, it's why you were born.

"Let the beauty we love be what we do. 
There are hundreds of ways to kneel 
and kiss the ground."  ~ Rumi

Watch ! 1935 film clip of  'A Mid Summer Night's Dream'  mixed with 
Lorena McKennitt's Mummer's Dance  - so lovely !

This year is special if you are on the east coast 
of North America, because it's a 17 year 
Cicada cycle... resurrection supreme ! 
"Cicadas were originally humans who, in ancient times, 
allowed the first Muses to enchant them into singing and dancing 
so long that they stopped eating and sleeping and actually 
died without noticing it. The Muses rewarded them with the gift 
of never needing food or sleep, but to sing from birth to death. 
The task of the Cicadas is to watch humans to report who 
honours the Muses and who does not."


17 is the STAR in Tarot - grace, renewal, self-esteem, 
beauty, purity, cosmic intelligence, truth, forgiveness, awakening and freedom from false self/ego.

Oh soul, 
you worry too much.
You have seen your own strength.
You have seen your own beauty.
You have seen golden wings.
Of anything less,
why do you worry ?
You are in truth
the soul, of the soul, of the soul.

~ Rumi


If there is light in the soul   
There will be beauty in the person.
If there is beauty in the person,
There will be harmony in the house.
If there is harmony in the house,
There will be order in the nation.
If there is order in the nation,
There will be peace in the World.

         ~ Chinese Proverb    


"If you hear a voice within you say 
'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, 
and that voice will be silenced."

 ~ Vincent Van Gogh



Tarot is an excellent medium for helping to access your inner truth.
If you are in Vancouver and would like to learn about Tarot, 
I'll be putting on a workshop later this month:

TAROT BASICS 
AN INTRODUCTION TO THE RICH TAPESTRY OF TAROT SYMBOLISM
with ROXANNA BIKADOROFF

MONDAY, MAY 27, 2013 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM
48. + 1. membership fee


Most people are familiar with Tarot as a 'fortune telling' tool, but it is really 
much more than that ! The cards may at first seem very mysterious - even 
scary - but as we get to know them, we discover they provide helpful keys to 
our personal, spiritual evolution. Rather than helping us foresee the future, 
they can help with healing the past, so that we can make informed and clear 
choices about our own journey. But we must first seek to understand their 
underlying truths, before we can use them in a responsible way. 

In this three hour beginner workshop, we will learn about the numerical 
framework, singular meanings, but more importantly, the defining 
relationships between the individual Tarot cards.

What to bring: 
A Tarot Marseilles deck is recommended, as it contains essential information 
within it's graphics and is the 'Mother' of all esoteric Tarot, but any traditional
 deck based on it will do.  Also something to write on/with.

This workshop is a prerequisite to 2 more advanced workshops to follow, 
if there are enough people interested.

Roxanna Bikadoroff is an intuitive artist who has been working with Tarot, 
giving readings and writing about Tarot and Astrology for over a decade. 
She also teaches illustration at Emily Carr University.
