Are you a Tarot skeptic or enthusiast? Either way you’ll find something in our new course, a no-nonsense introduction to the much-maligned card game. Of course, this is for entertainment purposes only, but we find that even the most hardened cynic can find joy in the idle pleasure of creating stories from the symbols and learning the history of the mystical deck.
In this course novelist Daisy Waugh guides you through the fundamental skills of Tarot card reading and interpretation. Using her understanding of character and structure, she will show you how to draw on the stories told in the beautiful pictures of the Tarot deck using the powers of your own intuition. Learn how to deal the deck and take a reading from as little as three cards or the classic ‘Celtic Cross’ spread. At the same time, expect to improve your narrative skills by learning to make links between the signs, symbols and numbers of the cards.
Daisy’s approach to the Tarot does not require a ‘magic touch’, but rather focuses on the student’s ability to question, comfort and challenge the recipient of their reading, with the aim of reaching a positive resolution to their dilemma.
In this eight part course you have all you need know to get started on the rewarding journey of learning and practising to read the Tarot.
