For a while now, I have considered putting together a Tarot course, but not been sure in what capacity and how to structure it. I contemplated shooting a series of video tutorials, which might still happen, but not in the immediate future. In part since I’m still exploring video apps, as I want it to be as professional looking as possible, and also because of personal reasons. So I decided to do it in writing instead. Conceptually, I have a vague sense of direction, and perhaps that’s for the best. Instead of going through the deck, card by card in numerical order, I will draw cards at random and provide perspective on reading them.

What I’ve learned from all these years in the metaphysical community, is that most readers have their own approach. I recall when I started learning about the cards as a kid, picking up countless books on the subject. All they did was to confuse me, as they tend to rely too heavily on the basic keywords – which can be intensely sterile and occasionally nonsensical. Then there are the different approaches to reading, covering everything from new age pseudo-psychology to pure fortune telling. However, in practice, a reading is an amalgam of all this combined with the reader’s own psychic sense. It’s also possible to use the Tarot for mediumship, but more about that on a later date.

So to start things of, let me ask you what you see in the photo posted here. How does the card make you feel? What is drawing your attention: the colors, the objects, the people, the animals, etc? How does their story unfold? I highly recommend a spiritual notebook/journal, if you don’t already have one, to write things like these down in. I’ll be providing my input on the card in my next Tarot school post. In the meanwhile, get yourself a weekly Tarot reading over at my Instagram account:
