What (Else) You Might Have Missed

EP content that hasn't been in the newsletters . . .

The first part of What You Might Have Missed offered a convenient roundup of all the newsletter content up to now. But there’s much more available on the Exploration Project site—so here’s another quick-access guide . . .

I hope everyone will find something on the list worth a first (or second) look. Part 2 of “The Esoteric Tarot” was published on EP very recently, by the way, so I think that one will be new to most readers.

And if you know of others who might be interested in Tarot | An Exploration Project, this would be a perfect post to share.

Finally—I’ve been at work on a new kind of information-gathering project, designed to expand our understanding of how people relate to Tarot. Launching in the next newsletter . . .

Warmest regards, Cynthia
