Tarot and the literary journey

I have recently received Camelia Elias’s book on the Marseille Tarot, Towards the Art of Reading, and am finding myself mentally, spiritually and emotionally invigorated and engaged with the cards. For a while now I have been grasping at the images in the cards and making meaning as I go along. The approach she propounds is very enticing and appealing to me. Rooted in semiotics and simplicity. It is a poetic and literary approach. I have done several searches on some authors she mentions in the book as inspiration and Enrique Enriquez is one of them. I have been reading around the internet a couple things on him and his approach to the tarot, alon the same line as Camelia Elias, and just today I found a documentary on him and his approach to the Marseille with several other tarot reader’s interviews as well. I say all this to basically get around to sharing the documentary here for those that have 79 minutes to spare. It is a wonderful ride and 79 minutes well spent for those interested in tarot. Truly inspiring. Except… Just when I paste the link here the video is removed… I apologize but for those interested here is a preview and I am sure surfing around the web can lend itself to finding the whole documentary.

An eternal lover of the literary arts, I am fascinated by words and their power. I am a diviner that writes, reads, enchants, dances and dreams.

    1. Thank you! This was kind of a weird short post. So many thoughts clashed into a short paragraph. When I am done with Camelia Elias’s book I’ll post some more thoughts. Also, the documentary is incredible in my opinion, I found it quite revolutionary in its simplicity. Definitely check it out. I also wanted to say more about it but alas, words didn’t come…

  1. Thank you for sharing this! I found the documentary and it’s certainly intriguing. I definitely feel this idea of reading the cards, looking at what is beyond the ‘traditional knowledge’ and just taking in what you see. All for that!

    1. Right! I was so inspired by the documentary. I felt like pulling out my cards and reading them from a fresh, uncluttered perspective. I really felt touched by this approach, very poetic and simple.

    1. I know, I really identify or I guess his approach speaks to me because it’s stripped down. It also reminds me of literary concepts like semiotics, deconstruction. I really love it, and I’m also loving Camelia Elias, very similar approach.
