Course Description

By the end of this course you will feel fully confident reading the tarot – fast! Whether for pleasure or for profit.

Just imagine, one month from now you will be captivating your friends, revealing insights that will amaze them. You'll be developing your own self-reliance because you'll always have access to new perspectives, whenever you have a life-choice or a big decision to make.

And, yes, you can choose to make a home-base career reading the tarot, on-line or as personal consultations – working as much as you want, when you want. And it's a great way to make new online friends around the globe.

A fun way to learn

I believe there are two ways to learn new life-skills – the hard way and the fun way. This is the fun way, making it so easy to remember the meanings of the cards and their significance together. Traditional ways of training tarot reading are incredibly complex and confusing. Not my way.

And, remember, should you have any problems or queries, I'm always available to help and guide you. I love to help.

Instructor and Creator

I have been reading Tarot for over 35 years. In my childhood home we were always reading playing cards, tea leaves or a myriad of other things. I don't think I was aware as a child that other people didn't just do this, I have learned since that I was mistaken.

I always have thought of tarot, medium ship, astrology, numerology, crystals and many other 'new age' things as just being part of me. I even went to college and became a computer programmer, not realizing that other people thought you can't do logical (normal things) if you are involved in something they can't explain.

I hope to teach my students to read the tarot but most of all to follow their intuition when it comes to reading the cards. The cards can be taught, I have confidence in each and every one of you and believe you can do it.

The bonus is a profitable little home-based business that you can take with you anywhere.
