Tarot and travel

The Tarot cards tell a story about the universal human journey,..from the big challenges in life to the mundane. It’s often called The Fool’s journey and who wouldn’t want to travel with this wonderful carefree character? I love travel and those 78 cards are my favourite travel companions. Consultiing the Tarot as you travel can yield amazing insights into stuff that’s going on in your life. A journey with Tarot is a journey enriched!

In 2017 I’m special guest on the Sacred Scotland in July. I’ll be doing Tarot readings and helping you to use the Tarot to interpret your inner landscape as you travel the magical outer landscapes of Ireland and Scotland, countries rich in folklore, fairy tales, myth and sacred sites dating back thousands of years..

A special treat in 2017 is the Tarot Magic in Merlin’s Britain tour…an otherworld journey featuring encounters with Merlin, Arthur and Pamela Colman-Smith, the artist who created the iconic images for the Rider-Waite Tarot deck. Internationally renowned Tarot author, teacher and scholar, Mary K. Greer joins us on this tour from 6-15 June.

Gothic Image specialises in small group tours of sacred and spiritual sites in the UK and Ireland under the expert guidance of Jamie George who has been offering these soul journeys through sacred landscapes for over 20 years.

Tarot activities on tours

No prior knowledge of the Tarot is required, because I work with everyone individually, so it doesn’t matter whether you know nothing, a little or a lot about the Tarot before your trip.

On the first evening, everyone explores their personality and soul cards to see what messages they hold for you at this moment in your life’s journey. We also use a specially designed Journey Spread as a way of exploring the energies at play as you travel your inner and outer journeys. The first evening of the tour is an excellent time to do it and the last day is the perfect time to look back on the trip to see how everything played out. Many an insight has been gained in this way!

Then we have fun every morning as we pick a card for the day and reflect on how the previous day’s card played out.
