Tarot reading courses

Learn to read tarot with us. Whether just for fun or with career goals in mind, our tarot courses support your journey from beginner to qualified consultant.

The tarot has its roots in a 15th-century Italian card game. However, it was only in the 18th century that it came to be used for cartomancy. The most common tarot decks today are the Rider-Waite-Smith tarot (of which the College archive has a first edition) and the Thoth tarot, developed by Aleister Crowley and Lady Frieda Harris.

The tarot’s symbolism forms an intricate system of communication, and the various tarot spreads impart guidance for specific questions. Our tarot reading courses unpack the multiple layers of meaning in the cards, giving you mastery over this ancient tool of divination. Our approach to learning the tarot is psychospiritual. Not only are you building a relationship with the cards, you are embarking upon a profound journey of self-discovery.

We regularly add courses to our programme. Keep checking back to see our upcoming Tarot reading courses. Or sign up to our newsletter (scroll down) for regular updates on our upcoming events.

Students will need their own deck of Rider Waite Smith tarot cards to complete this course.

The Tarot Foundation is for development.

In this course we work exclusively with the Rider Waite Smith deck. This will be your first step in gathering together your Tarot tool box for your ongoing Tarot journey. You will learn the traditional meanings and concepts within each of the cards. You will explore the symbols and images and how you relate these to your everyday living experience.

This course is like a talking book, it clarifies the wisdom and information of Tarot cards, what they are and what they do.

You will need your own RWS deck, a pen and a journal. Note taking and discussion is an integral part of the 10 week learning plan and at the end of this course you will have your very own reference book and will be able to perform a simple Tarot spread which will support you onto the next level.

We are pleased to be able to offer this course to you live online via Zoom. This means you can join Avril for classes in the comfort of your own home each week.

To graduate with the Go-Pro Tarot Certificate of Completion, students must attend all of the six modules, complete and pass two case studies a 60-minute reading for Avril at the end of the course. The time you commit to your case studies and tarot reading are in addition to the six modules.

The Go-Pro Tarot course comprises six modules over three months:

Module 1: Preparing for a consultation

In module 1, we polish up our Tarot tool kit and refresh our skills and gifts. We explore what we have to do to prepare for meeting the client and giving that brilliant reading. This will include tuning in and holding the energy right from the word go! We will also take a look at other disciplines such as aura reading, oracles and psychometry and how they can enrich the consultation and bring amazingly accurate insights.

Module 2: Delivering an empowering reading

Welcome to module 2. Today we tell stories! Good use of language is important in a consultation, especially if we are working with a sensitive situation. We will look how a spread seams together to tell the client’s story. Emphasis will be on working creatively with the symbolism in the cards and how they make successful connections to the relevant issues. We can also explore accountability issues.

Module 3: Directing the consultation

Module 3 is all about the dynamics. We look at what happens during a reading and what reactions we can expect. We will do experiential exercises around personal triggers and being non-judgemental. This is especially important when dealing with trauma, loss or mental health issues. We will take a look at the anatomy of a consultation and how to drive the session.

Module 4: Establishing your reputation

Ready for module 4? Working with social media is an art form and provides a vital artery to get your work out there! This module gives you the top tips for creating a workable marketing platform that will sustain your business. You will take those practical steps towards finding your own style that others will want to follow.

Module 5: Discovering and developing your brand

The penultimate module is all about creating a successful business that is authentic and does what it says on the tin! What makes you stand out? Who is your audience? What is your ambition and intention with your business? Get ready to create your vision for your business, now and in the future.

Module 6: Moving forward...

And finally, the world is yours! This module asks you about what images represent your business? What do you want it to look like? You will be getting creative with a mood board to help you with colours, names, logos. You get to ask those all important questions around the practical know-how of running a successful Tarot business…
