Our elemental nature connects us to the physical world. From that place we can achieve anything.
Ever since I first got into the tarot, I connected most profoundly with the four Queens. Hidden within the deck are four powerful archetypes that represent the absolute embodiment of each element. The Queen of Wands (FIRE) is boldly sensual and wields her creative power fearlessly. The Queen of Cups (WATER) draws on her pool of empathy to navigate emotions and articulate her feelings. The Queen of Swords (AIR) is mistress of all things thought, logic and perception. And the Queen of Pentacles (EARTH) grounds herself in the physical world by looking after her well-being and her work. Each Queen takes us on a quest back home to our true selves — the quest for creative expression, the quest to understand love, the quest to know truth and the quest for physical acceptance.
In Our Element is an enlightening exploration of our own elemental nature.
Accompanied by these four wise guides we’ll study the light and shadow aspects of each element, journey to meet the Queens within us in guided visualisations, create personal practices to bring more elemental balance into our every day lives and learn what to do when the elements are out of balance. It’s not unusual to instinctively identify with one element over the others and being able to recognise when you’re too “in your head” or “drowning” in your emotions helps you maintain balance internally so you can navigate the external with more ease. In my own life I’ve found embodying the elemental nature of the Queens to be a profoundly useful way to utilise these facets of myself when needed. For example, the Queen of Wands (FIRE) is my guide when I start a new project while the Queen of Pentacles (EARTH) reminds me to listen to my body and make more time for rest.
You don’t need any prior knowledge of the tarot to take this course. I’ll introduce you to the Queens as we begin our journey together and from there we’ll venture forth into the mastery of our own elemental natures using their symbols and stories as our guide.
Questions and Answers
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE THE EBOOK?
Straight away! Once payment has been made you’ll get email containing a link to download the ebook. If you have any problems downloading (or don’t receive the email) please contact my lovely assistant, Jess — firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO THIS COURSE?
An email account (so I can send you the ebook), a computer or tablet (to read the ebook) and a journal for notes and observations. OPTIONAL: a tarot deck you want to explore deeper.
I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT TAROT — DO I NEED TO BE A TAROT READER TO TAKE THIS COURSE?
Not at all! We’re using the four Queen cards in the tarot as archetypes to inspire and guide our journey but we won’t be doing lots of spreads and readings in this class. If you have a tarot deck you are welcome to use it during the class, of course, and I will be suggesting a few decks you might enjoy using if tarot is new to you and you’re keen to go further. But this isn’t a “tarot course”.
IS THERE ANY GROUP ELEMENT TO THE COURSE?
No, this is the self-study version of In Our Element which means you work through the material in your own time. There is no Facebook group with this course.
WHAT WILL I GET OUT OF THIS COURSE?
Without doubt you’ll develop a richer connection to your self and a deeper understanding of the way the four elements manifest within you. If you are into the tarot you’ll develop a new appreciation and understanding of the four Queen cards. If you’re not into tarot you may find your interest piqued :-) But either way you’ll develop new ways of looking at these four key parts of your self and a better understanding of how to use them in practical ways in your daily life.
DO YOU OFFER REFUNDS?
No. Due to the digital nature of this course I am not able to offer refunds. if you have any questions about the course to make sure it’s a fit for your needs, please get in touch x
