Tarot Classes Update

Hello Travelers!
I am diligently using this New Moon phase to work on completion of the Tarot Class Modules. I am HOPING to start loading them up within the two weeks.
For those of you who might be interested in taking the course, I suggest that you try and purchase your Radiant-Waite deck now, so that you can become acquainted with and imprinted with it. This is the deck I suggest using for beginners, because it is the most universally recognized deck.

As of this moment, I do not yet have a price point on the classes, but will let you know as soon as I do.
Have a great day!

  1. Also I would like to say that I am super excited that you’re doing tarot class. I am more of an intuitive person and the cards help me feelings, messages and visions I get. But I like that different people have different ways of reading the cards and your way of reading the cards is very interesting. You’ve gotten me more interested into the astrological aspect of it as well. Anyway I just wanted to say that I’m super stoked about the impending tarot class.

    • Thanks!
      Astrology just adds another layer to the cards and another layer to the overall meaning/interpretations.
      I also incorporate a bit of Kabbla and Sepharial, but it gives me a headache to do too much of that! LOL

      I really appreciate your support! Thank you.

  2. Tara, I brought the Rider-Waite deck almost a year ago and I have the hardest time connecting with it. I have since brought other decks that I connect with better but I keep trying to go back to the Rider-Waite with no success. Do you suggest any version of the RW to use?

    • Hey Shawnette!
      I will tell you that from my experience, the RW deck is usually the easiest in terms of learning the basic symbology and iconography, but I too had a bit of difficulty using the regular. Once I switched over to the Radiant, the deck came “alive” for me in ways that the regular did not.
      Now, I hate to tell you to purchase a new deck of Radiant, so I really can’t give you my opinion on what you should do.
      If you’d like, you can simply try to use the deck you have already, and maybe the course will help you connect with it. Then on the other hand, it might not. Been there. Done that.
      Some decks just don’t speak to you.
      But for the purposes of the class, the best way to get a good basic understanding of the tarot is to use the Rider deck.

      Wish I could be of more help.

      • Ok, thanks that helps to know I’m not the only one who struggles with the RW deck. I will get the Radiant deck just to see if I can connect better. Thanks!

    • Too, Shawnette…every other deck is based upon the Rider deck.
      Keep that in mind. Maybe you should start sleeping with the deck under your pillow each night.
      Wrap them in a black sock and put them under your pillow. Then at least every two days, take the cards out and look at them. You should also take notes of any impressions, feelings, messages that come to you while you do this.

      If after all this, the deck still doesn’t speak to you….
      Don’t know…LOL

    • Hey Shawnette1226!
      As Tara stated, any brighter colored RWS version is best, there is a version that’s supposed to mimic an old times look but the pics are so hard to see any detail that you can miss something, I myself have a regular RWS version that continually shows me new things and I’ve had this deck for a couple of years now.

  3. Thank you for that David. This is why I picked the Rider-Waite deck, but as I said, it’s not necessary for the course. The Radiant Waite is the exact same as the regular Waite, just the colors are not soo muted. For a long time I used the regular, but once I purchased the Radiant…a whole new set of “image correspondences” came clearly into focus.

    I will leave it up to each individual as to which deck they choose, because in terms of the information I’m sharing within the course, it will apply no matter regular or radiant.

    • I completely agree with your reasoning, but I just had to say something about the other decks out there, there have been many times I’ve been in a”new age” store and the clerk would be talking to a customer that was brand new to Tarot and would remark how beautiful some of the esoteric decks were and I wanted to say something about it but I would always hold my tongue thinking maybe this is how we weed out those who are not supposed to be apart of this community, like if they fall by the wayside we won’t have anyone to screw this up like what happened with religion. I find nothing wrong with everyone learning Tarot using the RWS just hold off on the esoteric decks until they get more in-depth knowledge and study. Anyways, please excuse the rant, love and light sister!

      • Ha!
        No joke. I can’t tell you how many decks I’ve purchased because they look “pretty” only to have them arrive and they don’t speak to me…so then I’m left with decks I can’t use. But I have found a solution to that…I save the decks and then gift them to friends by letting them choose the deck they want. This has worked pretty well so all is not lost.
        The decks for magickal workings and esoteric work are not for everyone and I tend to use those mostly for myself for meditative purposes or workings.
        But if I had to point to the three main decks, they would be the Marseille, the Visconti-Sforza and the Crowley deck….although I tend to stay away from anything associated with Crowley cause his remnant energies are a bit too “negative” for me. To each his own though for those who use his decks and read his works.
        I just stay away from it because of all the “bad luck” that eventually befell him. I like to try and keep in the “higher vibrational” sphere.
        Please never hesitate to share what you know, as it’s always good to give people different perspectives and all of us can be Gurus 🙂
        We just need to listen.

    • Hi Sandy!
      The only difference between the two decks is that Radiant-Waite is more colorful and can help to prompt the psychic abilities. Truth is…it’s the same deck though, so it’s not that important.
      Also…head over to the FB group because I just posed something that might interest you 🙂

    • The Rider-Waite-Smith deck is the blueprint for basically every deck out there barring mystical decks which are created by esoteric groups for meditation and “spell” work such as the Crowley deck and some others from groups such as the Golden Dawn and others, there’s nothing wrong with any of those decks but if you don’t have a good grasp of knowledge about the esoteric or alchemy and astrology they are worthless to you. So sorry for the long message but I really want everyone to know that’s coming into Tarot what to beware of when buying decks, they may be pretty but if you don’t get anything out of them they’re worthless, so stick with the RWS and the derivatives​ and you can’t go wrong.
