Learning the Tarot can be daunting.
78 cards with layered meanings. Reversals for each of those. Archetypes. Then the cards intermingling in a spread to create a meaningful story. Where to begin?
As a teacher by trade, I have decoded the cards so you can smoothly tap into this life skill. In my upcoming 9-hour Art of Tarot Reading Course, we will go over all of these areas and many more. It’s a fun exploration into your own inner wisdom with solid tools to enhance your approach.
When we pull a tarot spread, we are looking for comfort and guidance. We want to know what is going on and where this is headed.
When we read for ourselves, the interpretation is through the lens of the same anxiety that we sought answers from.
That’s why it’s important to remember the purpose of divination and the inherent compassion that the cards come from.
Or, to get a reading from someone who can bring objectivity to the situation.

We can see the archetypes that play out through all of history, and our roles we can choose to play to be fully engaged in our own lives and communities. The tarot adds curiosity to my days that lightens my fears and emboldens my choices.
