"Anything you stop ignoring becomes fascinating."
-- Enrique Enriquez
Nine of Cups today, and I do have a lot of emotion -- excitement.
Yesterday was a big day for me because I watched a film that I feel is a game changer for my tarot techniques, Tarology: The Poetics of Tarot, featuring Enrique Enriquez. The film amazed and excited me, and I will be watching it over and over. I will also be buying Enriquez's book of the same name as soon as possible.
Enriquez has strong opinions about tarot and doesn't mince words and though he sticks to the most traditional of decks, the TdM, I think he is considered in the tarot world to be radical, though clearly admired by at least some! I have loved everything he said in the film, and took three pages of notes during my viewing of it!
I haven't had time, obviously to process this guy yet, and I will write more about my response to him later, but for now, I'll share with you some of the resources I'm investigating.
Here's Lefanu's opinion of the film:
