Course content

The Tarot and Astrology course introduces the symbolism of Sun sign astrology, to illustrate how tarot cards so often equate with astrological archetypes.

It’s extraordinary how often the cards reflect the actual Sun sign – eg Strength as a Leo, Knight of Pentacles as a Taurus – and how they describe the type of person or situation in question.

Any client’s first question is, What’s going to happen?

Any client’s second question is, When is it going to happen?

As my interest in the tarot sprang directly from my astrological work I love to use the two together, especially to show how the horoscope reflects the tarot spread and then to introduce accurate timing.

This course is suitable for all tarot levels, whether the cards are completely new to you or whether you already have some familiarity with the practice of tarot. We’ll be covering card meanings as we go along, especially in terms of how to interpret your cards within the context and framework of the questions being asked.

You’ll learn a variety of effective spreads, from an “overview” of someone’s life to easy spreads for specific questions, such as relationships, work or personal issues of all kinds.

With the astrology component you’ll be venturing into the world of horoscopy. You’ll learn the symbolism of the signs and planets, and how to look up the key astrology for each reading, adding another extremely powerful string to your predictive bow, especially for timings.

Includes learning how to use the tarot for your own questions and also working on your own horoscope so please send me your data when booking a place.

This course brings together the foundational work in my books Tarot for Today and Astrology for Today
