PCA Notes: Tarot/Divination

Greetings everyone!

Like we did last year, we’re heading to talk at this years Pop Culture Association conference. It’s in Indianapolis this year, and lest you scoff, Indianapolis is home to North America’s largest Doctor Who store, as well as a Museum dedicated to Percussion, so I’m a happy wanderer! (My poor wife…)

My topic has to do with Jungian Amplification, Visualization and Sigilization through Tarot, using Pamela Colman Smith and Austin Osman Spare as keystones.

Topics include:

  • A.E. Waite
  • the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn (GD)
  • the Cipher document
  • Sola Busca
  • 1st Wave Feminism
  • Sylvia Pankhurst
  • Florence Farr
  • Ellen Terry
  • Aleister Crowley
  • Kenneth Grant
  • W.B. Yeats
  • Chaos Magic

If any of that made sense or is of interest,  you might want to look at the attached .PDF, which is background material for my talk.
