The Learn Intuitive Tarot Class at our Canadian School of Witchery is being added to all the time! As we've been working through the foundations of Tarot in the online course, there are lots of little bonus tips and tricks that beginner and intermediate students will appreciate, and be able to put in their Tarot tool box.
These classes are accessible online at any time, so future students will be able to work at their own pace, although the suggestion is to be consistent and work through each module at a once-a-week pace. Right now, we are meeting live, on Zoom, which gives the students lots of opportunity to ask questions and it's adding to the course.
Students who are accessing the tarot lessons at the School of Witchery after the live lessons still have the opportunity to meet one on one with Lori-Grace (The Little Witch) to discuss any challenges with particular cards.
Each lesson is split into several parts within the module, so that the student can digest the foundational info in small pieces, to put together the story the tarot wants to tell them.
Tarot is a great tool to learn how to communicate with your subconscious self, with Spirit Guide messages, and I've even used them to help me with Medium readings and talking with ancestors, in order to facilitate healing.
If you prefer to be taught the deck of your choice, in person or zoom one on one lessons are possible, and recommended. The recorded lessons focus on the Rider Waite Smith tarot deck and The Light Seer's Tarot deck.
Lori-Grace is based out of Midland Ontario, Canada, and in person classes at this time are restricted to 1-on-1 meetings in this Georgian Bay area. The Lessons that are recorded are available all over Canada, and anywhere that can access them online.
There's an excitement in purchasing your first tarot deck, but what's the best way to learn how to read the cards, and learn to read them without the need to refer to the little guide book that comes with them?
Working with your cards everyday for a year will help you to learn how to read your new tarot cards, but that's a long road. It's possible to learn the basics and read them without referring to the long notes in as little as 6 weeks.
It's completely possible to learn your cards yourself, but the best way to cut that learning short is to take a class with someone who has done all the years of work and can give you all of the 'cheat notes' to fast track your understanding, and your own intuition. Working together with someone who's figured out many small tricks and can pass those on to you is a short cut to you using your cards intuitively.
Look for a tarot teacher who has created a system that is easy to understand, and has had experience successfully teaching other students how to read tarot. This means they will have fine tuned their program, while knowing how to guide you through learning your tarot deck so you'll be reading the cards in the quickest time possible.
The best way to learn how to read tarot is working 1-on-1 with your tarot teacher and having a tarot class specifically made for the way you learn, is the ideal way to commit to reading your cards. This way, you can learn the deck of your choice, rather than the specific deck they choose to teach. You can also have the course tailored to your specific learning style, and be able to ask questions and get feed back in live time.
However, if you don't have the time to meet with a teacher consistently, taking an online course by a teacher who is still available to you for questions is a great option. With an online video course, you can access your classes at what ever time of day works for you.
The School of Witchery offers a "Learn to Read Intuitive Tarot" class, taught by Lori-Grace. Lori-Grace has taught tarot to individuals and to groups since 2004. Her online Tarot class teaches you in 6 weeks, how to interpret all Minor and Major Arcana, how to read several tarot spreads, and so many little connections and tricks throughout the whole course.
Although the course is on video, as part of the course Lori-Grace offers extra 1-on-1 time to the video students some live meeting time for you to ask extra questions you may have.
Lori-Grace has developed a system of reading and teaching tarot over 26 years, and teaches her students all the tricks and tips that have created her professional and busy tarot practice.
When I said this, I was surrounded by laughter and jokes, but later realized just how accurate this was for me. I've been asked to teach Oracle cards several times, by people who come to me through my learn to read tarot intuitively programs.
It leads me to have to explain that Tarot and Oracle, although they look like similar systems. (They are on cards, they have pictures, you can put them in spreads.) to my mind, they are completely different systems.
It doesn't make one better than the other, they are just different. They seem as different to me as the choice between getting your tea leaves read, and pulling out a pendulum to ask some questions.
I love the tarot system, and I love to teach it, especially for beginners. There is a rational order to it, even within all of the stuff within it that dances with intuition. The ordered system helps create the 'rules' to practice over and over again, and once you've mastered the simple guideline tarot rules, it allows you to go on autopilot.
(Think about when you learned to drive a car. At first, you are all nerves and trying to remember the rules. Skip ahead years and years later, you aren't thinking about the rules anymore, you're able to drive on autopilot.. with the radio on and a smile on your face.)
Because of how I learned to read cards (and then on autopilot, learned how to tune into the Source or Universe or Spirit Guide messages) Teaching someone how to read Oracle FIRST, makes ZERO sense to me. Oracle, to me, is ALL intuition.
(I'm not a fan of memorization of cards, and I find to read Oracle without intuition, means to memorize odd numbers of cards....not what I teach, not what I do.)
So, it feels like a valid question for me, in my life as a professional tarot reader. Are you a Tarot Reader or an oracle reader? It does sort of translate for me as "are you a cat person or a dog person."
At this point, after over 26 years of reading tarot, and knowing how to tap into the tarot system intuitively, I CAN read oracle cards. I find it so much easier to teach oracle, after a student already has an understanding about how to tap into their intuition.
If you are ready to learn how to read intuitively, let's connect and find what the best type of deck would be for you, based on your own goals and vision!
I'm a tarot teacher, and had someone ask me today if all the tarot decks have the same cards in them? I took the lovers card out of a few of the decks I own and teach, to show you the difference about how they read from different decks.
If they are based on the traditional Rider-Waite (Smith) they will have all the same cards, BUT in different decks they are going to speak a little differently from deck to deck.
Shown today is The Lovers Card from :
The Druid Craft Tarot
The Morgan Greer Tarot
The Deviant Moon Tarot
The Wild Wood Tarot
They have some similarities, but will read differently, and this will change your reading.
The deck you choose for reading for yourself or clients, will give you a completely different message. If you pick up a 'how to read tarot' book, it's going to give you very general meanings, and most likely not speak directly to the deck that you have purchased and have fallen in love with.
When I teach my students, it's a specially made program just for YOU, your learning style, and I teach you the tarot deck that you are drawn to read, so that you get the meanings of YOUR deck off by heart and intuitively. This makes the readings that you give UNIQUE to you!
I teach people how to read tarot intuitively, so they can confidently read for themselves, friends, and even paid clients, without the pain of memorizing pages and pages of information!

It's nearly New Years Eve as I sit and write. We're in the funny spot, the week between Christmas and New Years, where I have a challenging time remembering what day it is and where I'm supposed to be... more so than usual.
I've been watching a LOT of the show Outlander, which feels like a holiday indulgence... sitting and watching Netflix, with no spellwork embroidery in my hands. It's making me think a lot about time travel, and magic, my herb work that I've put aside for family festivities. It's got me thinking about the year to come.
This is the time of year that I get a lot of reading requests for what's coming up in the new year. 2018 feels like it's going to be special, that it's made for personal victories for the individual, if you are ready to be patient with yourself through the healings that will be presented.
Those healings will look different for everyone, and will be tailored to put you just beyond your comfort zone. But, just passed that fine line awaits some beautiful reward.
That's what 2018 is feeling like, for me. That's the messages I get from The Dudes. (My spirit guides. They picked me. They know me. haha.)
Another thing that I'm finding I'm doing quite a bit lately is attracting more and more people who are just starting with their own gifts, but don't know what the next step is. Those conversations have been very individual, too. No two witches, or druids, or seers, or readers are alike. I sit and get the messages for the individual with how to proceed with their own growth with their gifts.
The beauty of January and February, for me, is that the air is somehow quieter, the energy is more still. It makes it easier to get crisp and clear messages . There's something more relaxed for me, with readings, at this time of year. I nestle in. There's no long distance drives to Barrie or Orillia for home party tarot readings, less call for bachelorette or home party readings. This leaves me cozy in my office for individual readings.
As always, you can book a personal "what's coming up this year" style reading with me in my office, in Midland Ontario, but we can always do a phone reading, too, if you live long distance from me.
However, if you are also someone who feels like you've got a gift and you don't know how to use it, it would be my pleasure to help guide you through the next steps in your growth. Learning to read cards, learning to perform Reiki, learning to connect with your own spirit guides are all things I can help with!
Happy New Year!
