Learn how to read Tarot

Beginners Course
The Beginners course is five hours long, and the times for the teaching are totally flexible; we just organise what is best between ourselves. The Academy does not teach five hours in one day as this would be too intense. The course is usually run for one hour once per week for five weeks or longer. Whatever else suits you – just let us know.

The cost is £100 per hour and each course runs for five hours. You can either pay a lump sum of £500 per course up front, or you prefer you can pay £100 per hour lesson as we go along. Or if you prefer, my assistant Amit also teaches beginners Tarot at £55 per hour.

During the beginners course you will learn:

The basics of how to read Tarot cards
The meanings, symbols and definitions of each of the 78 Tarot cards including the 22 Major Arcana and 56 Minor Arcana cards
How to look at a spread and see how you would interpret it
About your ‘Soul’ Card and what this says about your purpose in life
About your ‘Hidden Teacher’ Card which indicates your lessons to learn in this life
We will also look at how Tarot links to astrology and numerology
We look in detail at the Celtic Cross which is one of the main spreads to understand

Once you have done the Beginners Course, you may be interested to continue with the intermediate course.
