Reading Stones and Cards with Mary Ellen Collins
Mary Ellen Collins is a tarotist, astrologer, and a diviner who uses many tools. At StaarCon 2021 Mary Ellen presented “Astrology for Tarot Readers”. We are excited to welcome her back to StaarCon 2022, where she will give a presentation on creating and working with charm oracles.
In this episode of StaarCast, Mary Ellen teaches us how to create and read with a crystal oracle, and how to incorporate crystal reading with tarot.
Add some star shine to your tarot readings by learning how to recognize the astrological references found in your tarot deck. In addition to their classic meanings, every tarot card also has an astrological correspondence. This workshop will familiarize you with the specific correspondences for the cards in the major arcana. We will also introduce basic building blocks for reading astrology charts by looking at zodiac signs, planets, and houses. Hopefully you’ll be inspired to learn more about astrology in the future!
Casting charms is a unique way to work with the energy of divination. In this workshop you will learn how to create and work with your own oracle using sample kits of charms. Then we will combine the charm casting process with a tarot reading to give it depth and nuance.
This class will feature lots of hands-on practice exercises. Everyone who takes this class remarks about how much fun it is! One bonus of the class is that as a result of the practice exercise, participants receive a free mini-reading from one another so be sure to come to class with questions! Please note that if you are new to tarot there are decks that you can borrow.
Note: To prepare for this class, start saving items from your junk drawers, jewelry boxes, craft supplies, etc. You can use small charms, coins, tiny toys…anything that inspires your imagination! (Sample charm sets will be used in the class to give you an idea.)
Can different divination systems work well together, or are they inherently incompatible? We’ll look at interpreting readings using tarot, Lenormand, astrology, and crystals.
