The Tarot is a microcosm of the Universe. It is also a system of divination, which seeks to bring self-knowledge and insight into the Client’s life.
A reading is an interaction between the Reader and the Client or ‘Querant’. The system in which the Querant places his or her faith will ultimately be the one that gives most success.
The Tarot is one of many systems of divination. Others include the I Ching, the Ogham Alphabet and the Runes. Techniques like the reading of tea leaves, dice and the fall of bones are also commonly used for prediction and gaining self-knowledge. Our personal realities – the people and events in our lives - can also be read symbolically (like any other system), although it is often simpler to gain knowledge from a summarised or microcosmic reading.
Tools of divination include cards, objects, or events, which are used to examine the situation at hand. When organised into a system, this creates an ‘alphabet’ with which the Diviner can work. An alphabet is a structure from which individual letters are taken to make up words that have individual and specific meanings. Similarly, the Tarot employs cards (like letters) to make up a reading (the words).
A Tarot reading represents an issue in microcosm. In other words, the reading provides a summary (microcosm) of the Querant’s life and circumstances (macrocosm). As an insight into the Querant’s life-situation, it is a symbolic representation.
In this course we will cover several Tarot spreads in-depth, from the traditional spreads, like the Celtic Cross, to spreads developed by Jacques, such as the 6-Month Spread. This will allow you to understand how the cards interact and work together. A spread isn't just about understanding what the different card positions are, a spread relates to understanding the deeper theme and being able to convey that to your client.
The most difficult aspect of a Tarot reading is the integration, pulling together all the different aspects to create a coherent reading. In this course we will give you many examples of how to read, so that the information becomes clear and easily decipherable. This is supplemented by quizzes that help you understand the process of giving a Tarot reading.
We will teach you how to create the space to do readings (in person or telephonic) for other people.
We will also look at Tarot as a Tool for Magic. Using Tarot as a Tool for Divination, we receive the cards in a passive sense. When we work with the Tarot as an active tool for creating our reality we choose the archetypes to create the reality that we want. The Magic Spread then becomes a tool for manifestation.
