Want to learn something new in the new year? Take a Tarot Card class

Have you been wanting to learn to read Tarot Cards? It is not hard really and a lot of fun. I teach a class on Tarot cards for any group, of any size. I recommend at least 5 people join a class to make it interesting, since much of my class is interactive. You all get to be the one asking the cards a question and the one who does the reading.

I never was a teacher, but I love to teach the things I love. And I LOVE tarot cards. That is why I have created a class to teach it. First you will get a short lecture about the real history of the development of Tarot cards and Tarotmancy (divination by tarot cards.) Hint: it is not a message from the Ancient Egyptian Masters!  Then YOU will get to be the reader as we turn the class interactive. One of you will ask the cards a question. Another of you will select a card and try to answer the question, with my coaching. Then we will trade off and you will all get a chance to be both querent and reader.

I will supply the tarot decks and each guest will leave with a hand-out explaining the meaning of each card (upright and reversed) and some simple spreads to get you started on your own Tarot journey.

If you want to do this via Zoom, we can do that too. I work with 2 cameras and the experience will be as though I am there in person. If all of you are in person and I am on Zoom, it still will work. Just set me up in a monitor or laptop where you can all see what we are doing, and the fun will start.

If you have teenagers 15 years old or older who would like to play with Tarot Cards, this would be a great introduction. There is nothing “Satanic” or evil about cards. I could clear some myths and misconceptions kids have about them.  When they are done, they will understand what Tarot cards can do and not do and will not be afraid of them.

Call me or email for more information about how much FUN this could be at your next get-together. It would be fun for club meetings, Ladies Nights Out, or Birthday parties. Let’s resolve to have more FUN this year starting with learning to read Tarot Cards!

FUN would be had!

Trust the artist

I am in the process of having some new tunics made to go with my costume. Julia (Needlman www.julianeedlman.com) is making them with the help of a very good local fabric artist named Jennifer Smith. This last week, they perfected the basic pattern and showed me some design elements they will be using to make… Continue Reading

Eating a Frog

Many years ago, when I was still working as a Librarian, someone had pasted a funny bookmark on their locker. It showed a photo of a frog and said: “Eat a live frog first thing in the morning and nothing worse can happen to you all day.” I loved that bookmark! I thought about it… Continue Reading

Adventures in Tarot Cards: 8 of cups

“Something hidden. Go and find it. Go and look behind the Ranges– Something lost beyond the ranges. Lost and waiting for you. Go!” –Rudyard Kipling “The Explorer” 8 of Cups has always been a favorite card of mine. It usually (we will use the Rider-Waite as an example here) shows a person walking away from… Continue Reading

Card of the day: High Priestess

The High Priestess traditionally is the guardian of secrets. She is a teacher rather than a doer.  But if you listen, you can learn much information you can use.   Followers of the I Ching may know the High Priestess as Yin (passive) to the Magicians Yang (active.) But she is not completely unmoving. Nor… Continue Reading

Magicians vs Tarot cards

I can rarely enjoy a magic show anymore. I worked for a short time in the office of a wonderful mentalist and good friend (as well as a greatly respected mentor who helped me break into the psychic entertainment business.)  Once he twirled the stem on a pocket watch, handed it to me then guessed… Continue Reading
