Rites of Passage

The Tarot is essentially a learning tool whereby we discover things about ourselves. Whenever a mage wishes to raise her Arete score, she must undergo some sort of ordeal. The cards should prove very handy for providing ideas for ordeals, rites of passage, Seekings, learning experiences and other journeys of self-discovery. Full spreads are recommended when using cards for this purpose.

Example:

• To construct a Seeking, Wendy uses a Celtic Cross spread as inspiration. The querent is the Knight of Pattern because the character is a young, black-haired male Progenitor. In order, the other cards come up:

1. Cover: Three of Pattern — The quest will involve persistence in order to build something. It may be physical, but equally may not.
