This class series is for the beginning Tarot reader, but experienced readers are welcome. Please bring your deck to each class! Each class is $25.
Monday, Feb. 4 -- You and Your deck. Caring and purification, organization, common uses, grounding rituals , and, Ethics of reading. Pat will guide you in crossing the threshold of your current understanding into the world of Tarot this night. Be ready to re-focus! Bring your deck of choice, a pad and pen.
Monday Feb. 10 and Feb. 17 – The spiritual energies of the Major Arcana are expressed through the mundane situations of the elemental suits of the Minor Arcana. Each week, Ellen will systematically guide you in exploring and understanding these relationships and how to apply them to a reading.
Monday, Feb 24 – The Court Cards and Reversed cards. Often a source of distress and confusion for a new reader, various approaches to these problem areas will be presented and discussed by Pat.
Monday, March 3 – Ellen and Pat will present and discuss the Celtic Cross reading method, and supervise you doing readings for each other, where agreed. (No one HAS to give or receive a reading!) This class will be FREE for students who took ALL of the other four classes.
Each class is $25. No additional cost for handouts or materials. Please reserve your space by calling BookWoman at 512-472-2785 or Pat at 512-636-5781, and for questions.
No textbooks are essential, but several are recommended and can be purchased through BookWoman or over the internet, but our preference is that you support BookWoman: Tarot for beginners: A Practical Guide to Reading the Cards by Barbara Moore which is a general guide covering history, giving readings generally, and individual card interpretations; anything written by Mary K. Greer is useful; and The Instant Tarot Reader by Monte Farber and Amy Zerner, explores the Celtic Cross and other layouts in detail.
Pat Cuney and Ellen Hancock are both ordained priestesses of the Re-formed Congregation of the Goddess International (RCGI). Pat has more than 40 years as a professional Tarot reader, and is the House Tarot Reader for Book Woman, and a House Reader at Ancient Mysteries. Ellen is a practitioner of the healing arts (massage, hypnosis, Reike) who uses Tarot to help clients understand the patterns at work in their lives.
While they are in general agreement with each other and most authorities on card interpretations, they both have exceptions, and both agree that every reader is free to explore her own methods and interpretations of cards and methods for reading.
