Tarot 101

Instructor:  Anne Reith, Ph.D.


Discover the hidden power of the tarot!

  • Are you new to tarot or are you someone who has repeatedly struggled to learn the tarot system?
  • Or do you have a tarot deck that you enjoy but would like to learn more about how it works or how to get more out of your readings?

Tarot has been around for hundreds of years, but many people avoid using it because they find it difficult to remember the meanings of 78 cards, all of which can be interpreted in an upright or reversed position.  That’s basically 156 cards instead of 78!

Anne invites you to attend this afternoon workshop where you’ll learn lots of “tricks” to help remember the meanings of all 78 cards (both upright and reversed).

We’ll start with the basics (e.g., how to select the right deck for you, caring for and cleansing your cards) and then we’ll move to the mechanics of doing readings (e.g., shuffling cards, selecting cards, the importance of your intention, how to ask your question).

We will also discuss how to use all types of divination tools for psychic readings (e.g., tarot, runes, angel cards).  Anne will share which tool she believes will provide the “best” answer when certain questions are being asked.

Your manual will provide you with interpretations of all 78 cards (both upright and reversed), and directions on how to use 12 different tarot spreads.  Anne will also lead you through a guided meditation that is designed to connect you with a special “tarot guide,” who will help you with your tarot readings.

Registration information for the Tarot 101 Workshop

  • NOTE (as of Fall 2022):  Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic that required the closure of our center, this workshop will either be:
    • Offered ONLINE as a Zoom webinar
    • Converted into a product that will be available through our online Store
    • Taught in-person once the pandemic is behind us and we can find a new location to offer classes
  • If you are interested in this course, please either email us at Anne@AnneReith.com or fill in the inquiry form above. We will add you to the “Interested List” and notify you once we know more.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT THIS CLASS: Anne will be teaching you how to use tarot cards. Therefore, to gain the most out of this class, please plan to have a deck of traditional tarot cards with you. Traditional decks have 78 cards and include the Major Arcana, Minor Arcana, and Court Cards. Non-traditional decks often include a different number of cards, leave out the Minor Arcana or Court Cards, are larger in size, and/or use very different names for the “suits” of the Minor Arcana cards (e.g., Swords are referred to by a very different name such as Crystals). The Rider Waite, Radiant Tarot, or Robin Wood Tarot decks are good options, although there are others. You can purchase a traditional tarot deck online or at most metaphysical stores.

DATE: The next date is currently being selected. Please be sure to join Anne’s Online Community in order to receive updates on this course.
