Here’s a peek at some of what you’ll learn in each section of the four part course:

Part 1: The Energy You Bring To Your Tarot Studies

  • How to minimize overwhelm
  • What to focus on instead of memorizing card meanings

Part 2: The Broad View

  • How tarot ‘works’
  • How to define your tarot intentions (and why this is important)
  • What intuition is and why it’s actually a good thing to question your intuition (juicy stuff!)

Part 3: Foundational Tarot

  • The overall components of a deck and how they harmonize
  • A map for understanding the major arcana
  • What each of the four suits is all about
  • A numerology framework for understanding cards Ace through Ten
  • How to become acquainted with the court cards

Part 4: Conducting Readings

  • Guidelines for looking up card meanings
  • How to interpret reversed cards
  • How to prepare for a reading
  • The 7 best practices for working with spreads

I am a big believer that you’re never done learning tarot, and of course we can’t cover everything in one short course! But I’ve packed as much value as I can into this offering and I hope you will find something useful here.
