Tarot Card Reading
In this course, students will be instructed on the basics of reading tarot cards. The course begins with an overview of the tarot as a divine tool, continues into learning the cards and practice, and, ideally, ends with students attempting a 10-card, Celtic Cross based interpretation for themselves.
Of note, the instructor focuses on a situational reading style. The gaining of knowledge about the self and others via forming narratives is a focal point. Though fortune telling plays a role even in this style of reading, it is a minor aspect at most.
Also of note, though spirituality is associated with tarot card reading, those of any religious background or none at all can participate fully in this course.
A willingness to study and practice beyond class times (homework).
A willingness to communicate during class and to work with others.

Study: a journal (electronic or physical) in which notes and interpretations will be kept.
Preparation (optional): the student’s choice of a bowl of salt, a crystal pendulum, incense or sage, or a bell.
