Tarot Readings and Workshops

Tarot in its modern form is based on sets of 78 pictured cards developed in the late 19th and early 20th century, although its roots go back much further. The traditional cards point to a process of spiritual insight, development and personal growth. Consulting the tarot is an alternative way to get answers, insights and fresh perspectives.

Although tarot has developed to relate to spiritual principles it is mostly, but not exclusively, used as a divination tool that can assist us in making informed choices about everyday matters and our direction in life. Besides tarot readings I also give workshops to help you learn the basics of tarot yourself.

Card readings

BASIC INTRO TAROT WORKSHOPS

Learn the basics of tarot privately or in a group of friends or family:

– Private for 1 person

– In groups of 2, 3 or 4

A private workshop lasts around 3 hours, a workshop for multiple people longer.                                    They are all interactive and include practicing.

Intro workshop major arcana         EUR 240 total               

Intro workshop minor arcana         EUR 240 total           

Intro workshop court cards            EUR 240 total             

Dates, times, locations and prices are decided on together, in consultation. 

 

  • Each of these workshops is based on the Rider Waite cards – the most commonly used deck. These are the best cards for beginners. You will need your own cards to take part.
  • It is recommended to follow these workshops in this order. But lots of people are also happy just learning about the major arcana, and possibly only going on to study the minor arcana and the court cards much later. This is completely fine.

Basic intro tarot major arcana workshop

The major arcana cards are or can be seen as archetypes, symbolizing universal human experiences and states of being.

The workshop starts with a short meditation and an explanation of the history and structure of the tarot. We then look at and discuss the 22 cards of the major arcana .

Because there are only a small number of people taking part there will be lots of space for personal attention, questions, explanations, etc. During the last hour you’ll practice doing a few short, simple spreads and reading the cards yourself. By the end of the workshop you should have a simple grasp of the cards of the major arcana and what it means to read the cards for yourself or someone else.

At the end of the workshop I’ll give you a short brochure with a brief summary of the meanings of the cards, and some links to  sites on the Internet.

Basic intro minor arcana workshop

The minor arcana cards represent more everyday experiences than those of the major arcana.

I start the minor arcana workshop with a brief meditation and then explain how the minor arcana is built up. We then go through the 4 suits of pentacles, cups, swords and wands, the numbers ace to ten and the four court cards of each suit.

We will also discuss the four court cards of each suit (page, knight, king and queen). If  you want to examine the court cards in more depth I also offer an intro workshop  exclusively focusing on these cards. See below.

I provide a manual with a description of how the tarot is built up to refer to during the workshop.

Because there are only a small number of people taking part there will be lots of space for personal attention, questions, explanations, etc.

During the last hour you’ll practice doing a few short, simple spreads and reading the cards yourself. If you’re familiar with the major arcana you may involve these cards too. By the end you should have a simple grasp of the minor arcana cards.

Basic intro court cards workshop

More than the other tarot cards, the court cards represent actual people in your life. They could also signify yourself, or sometimes a group of people.

In the workshop we will look at and discuss the court cards in each suit (e.g. the page, knight, king and queen of wands), as well as the court cards of each type (e.g. the four queens). We will discuss each of their personalities, strengths and weaknesses, their advice and the messages they carry. During the workshop you’ll receive a short manual about the court cards.

Because there are only a small number of people taking part there will be lots of space for personal attention, questions, explanations, etc.

During the last hour, with my help you’ll practice doing a few short, simple spreads with the court cards. We may also at some point involve the major arcana and/or minor arcana cards. By the end of the workshop you will have a better grasp of the court cards and will be able to continue to explore them yourself with more confidence.
