Lucy (Creative Director of West Art Collective) told us: 'I used the Magician tarot card to represent its links to my beliefs and studies in Hermeticism. The principle of correspondence, also best know as the statement of as above, so below is one of the Seven Principles of Hermeticism. The Magician tarot card symbolises this principle with the hand gestures pointing to the sky and to the ground. I have reversed the tarot card to reveal a sense of chaos magic, best fitting for this event.' We think this event sounds amazing and tickets are still currently available to attend following the links below:
