So many people ask what the cards mean, with the idea that learning the individual meanings for the cards will give us an idea of the complexity of reading.
Learning to read tarot is about so much more than memorizing definitions.
It is about speaking the language of the world - your world to be exacty.
TAROT 101 was specially designed to teach you how to read, not what to read.
Okay so what does that mean?
It means that what we are teaching you is beyond just Tarot. This course, in 6 lessons, will give you everything you need to understand the many nuanced workings of the world around you without overwhelming you with too much Jargon or things to memorize.
There are many languages and facets of knowledge already in your life - this is the work of starting to make those connections from what you know to what you want to know. TAROT 101 will give you the tools you need to deepen your intuition, see the unique messages in the cards, and trust the lessons + stories that appear before you through them.
I'm not a tarot reader... It's just something I'm interested in. Can I still take this course?
YES! TAROT 101 was made to be informative for ALL people - whether you've been reading for years, are curiously stepping into this world, or somewhere in between. We go over basics like Major and Minor Arcana's, but also take it further to give you more to grasp onto within the cards as you are reading them.
Why is learning to read tarot different than learning what the cards mean?
Lets put it this way - if you're learning a new language you can always memorize the "hot phrases" and go-to words. But it is when we learn how that language works that we really get an idea of how to communicate in it.
So that is what we did. You do not need memorization to learn how to read tarot - period.
All that being said...
We know what it's like to learn about tarot in a solitary and slow way. In our wee days of witchcraft there was little open community and ways to learn outside of books and tumblr. While they did their job, we now want to share what we've learned over the years with you.
TAROT 101 is centred around building a base of working knowledge for tarot, and taking deeper looks at the ways we can read, find information, lean into intuition and develop a reading style that is unique to us.
We will be going over basics like symbology, numerology, major and minor arcana while also bringing in astrology, pop culture, humour, creativity, and whatever else you bring to the table.

We are working on tiered and PWYC models to make all of this accessible. Please pick the option that feels right for you.
TAROT 101 is taught with the Rider-Waite deck. You do not have to have this or use this but it will be important for symbology, iconography, colours and more as we go through this course. You will still glean so much beautiful information without this specific deck, but if you feel so inclined you can grab a copy of it here.
There is an e-book that accompanies this course than can be found here
