10-03-2020 - Tarot 101: Introduction to Tarot Reading - 3 WEEK SERIES


This three-week class will provide a foundation in reading cards for self-exploration. We will cover reading basics such as how Tarot can be useful in your life, how to select and “claim” a deck of cards, and how to perform simple readings for yourself. Our approach to learning card meanings will be through categories, correspondences, and storytelling rather than memorization, so if you’ve been wanting to learn how to read but thought it seemed impossible to remember every card, this class is for you! Join us in learning the foundational principles of intuitive divination through tarot. No experience with Tarot is necessary.

This is a 3 part workshop!

Mark your calendars for Oct 3rd, 10th, and 17th, 11am - 1pm PST

TO BRING WITH YOU: You will need a blank journal for notes and exercises and a Tarot deck. It will be easiest if we all are working with similar imagery, so I suggest a Rider Waite Smith style deck, of which there are MANY different examples.

A helpful list of suggested decks is linked here.

The Melanated Classic Tarot / found here

A few more decks we love are available through Seagrape Apothecary.

Part of learning to read is finding a deck you connect with, so consider it your pre-class assignment to explore various options and select one that speaks to you visually.

*This is a LIVE digital event with a 2 week replay video post class. Due to this, no refunds are available.*
