Course Description

Have you always wanted to learn how to read the Tarot cards?  Why not try our online class? The only requirement is a Tarot deck (and the principles are the same no matter what type of Tarot deck you use).

This self-paced course will teach you the basics of the Tarot (78 picture cards used to reveal hidden truths).  Learn how to do readings for yourself, friends and relatives. Developed for the beginner, the class provides structural meanings and interpretations of each suit and spread and shows you how to perform readings.  Along with the basics, you'll also learn about different types of decks, the history and the tips and tricks to help you become a ‘master reader'.

Reading Tarot Cards gives you access to spiritual knowledge revealing new insights and options. Readings can provide hope in re-envisioning life's journey, plus support and reaffirmation of what is already known. Readings can help us to answer some of life's biggest questions, and so much more. You do not need to have a well developed spiritual connection or ‘psychic power' in order to get valuable information from the Tarot.
