Although spontaneously associated with divination, the Tarot began to be used in psychotherapy offices and in personal development or coaching sessions starting with the second half of the twentieth century. Today many therapists, regardless of their training, use the tarot as a tool through which they can observe the interactions between conscious and unconscious. The well-known psychoanalyst, Carl Jung, approves the use of tarot cards through which, he believes, we can access the unconscious. For him, tarot cards are an easily accessible way to represent the archetypes of humanity, “active predispositions (…) that preform and instinctively influence our thinking, feeling and action”, fundamental human motives that remain in the collective subconscious of all people.
The Referential Birth Chart is a method created by Georges Colleuil, psychotherapist, philosopher, writer, movie director and symbolist. This projective method provides a framework for self-knowledge and a useful tool for accompanying those who embark on this path. At the moment, the method is used by human resources specialists, psychotherapists, personal development counselors, coaches in countries such as France, Belgium, Switzerland, Morocco, Spain, Italy, Canada, Latin America and many others.
What is the Referential Birth Chart? A method of self-knowledge and a useful tool in working with people that combines symbol therapy, the archetypes present in the 22 major arcana, and the personal intuition of both the client and the practitioner of the method.
In order to compose the Referential Birth Chart it is necessary to match the fourteen arcana (thirteen major and one minor) obtained by a numerological calculation with the fourteen houses, each house corresponding to a different aspect of existence. Personality traits, personal quests, challenges and resources, personal and parental projects, interdictions or unconscious interior conflicts, these are some of the aspects that we can at least look at in the framework provided by this method.
We find illustrated in the arcana of the tarot the great concepts of modern psychoanalysis and psychology. This supports the psychological dimension of the tarot and the therapeutic force of the symbols. The Referential Birth Chart provides the framework in which the secrets (the word arcana comes from the Latin arcanum which means secret) are revealed symbolically and by projection to the one who walks on this path. However, it is not about secrets external to our being but about what the specialized literature calls the unconscious. The very meaning of the word symbol, from the Greek symbalein – to put together, completes the picture and provides the key to symbol therapy. Inscribing the symbol in our personal lives is a therapeutic path.
