Introduction to Tarot, 4 Part Class - (Meanings / Memorization)
This is a low pulse class but we only do these so many times a year.
Do you struggle with knowing the meanings of your tarot cards? Want to learn more about the symbolism and ways to connect with each card?
This is a really unique class for those wanting to learn more about the your tarot cards, and can be for any level reader. We will work on different groups of the tarot starting with the minor arcana, because most people struggle with their meanings most. The last class focuses solely on the Major arcana. We use visual, discussion, and personal relating when in this class, so it works on many levels and gives your brain a reference when triggering meanings. It is also really fun to sit around and learn with a bunch of other people with the same interests. I guarantee you will know tarot meanings when you leave.
Bring your tarot cards and a book with definitions if you have it, We will provide meanings of the cards but it is great to add to your meanings through other sources and especially the deck you work with the most.
