Jason Augustus Newcomb, the designer of the Greek Magical Papyri (PGM for short) Tarot will discuss practical uses for this amazing deck. The art is based on ancient Greek pottery, late antiquity magical gems and the talismans of the PGM. It is very much a “magical” Tarot with more than 40 talismans from the PGM incorporated into the deck. Unlike most modern Tarot creations it is not really oriented around Qabalah or the Rider-Waite model, but is instead much more directly related to Pythagorean and Platonic philosophy and a chthonic magical journey. In this class I will teach several spells that can be conducted using the cards of the PGM Tarot that incorporate ancient spells and modern techniques, as well as his visionary tools for connecting with the spirits represented in the deck.
