Module 3: How To Read The Cards

Now that you've got the basic meanings under your belt you're ready for the next step. Putting cards together in relationship. How do they flow or influence each other?

We'll also explore one of the most powerful tools for working with tarot -- the Tarot Journal. Don't skimp on this part -- it's what separates those who read with confidence from those who feel uncertain.

Building Confidence 4 Lessons

The Power of a Tarot Journal

In this lesson you learn how keeping a tarot journal is one of the most powerful things you can do to bring the cards to life.


Learning Combinations of 3 Cards

This is an exciting step in our tarot mastery journey! Learning to read 3 cards together. How do they influence each other? This is a fun and easy to do approach that will allow you to take your skills to a new level.

3 Card Spreads

3 Card Spreads are not only powerful readings in and of themselves, but they are the cornerstone of reading ANY spread. If you can read 3 cards in a flow you have the foundation to read anything.

The Celtic Cross

This is one of our go to spreads. It's powerful, has depth and gets to the point. There's a reason why it's a timeless classic.

In this lesson you'll learn 2 versions of the Celtic Cross spread. There are actually at least one more -- but we don't want to overwhelm you and make it confusing.

Not only that, but you'll see 4 examples of real readings by us. 2 by Mary and 2 by Dave.

We both use slightly different versions of the spread -- plus we each have a slightly different style of reading.

We think this will be very powerful for you to watch a few times. 

For those of you who are really keen to read the cards, we suggest taking the same cards out of your deck and following along.

Then try speaking out the reading yourself! Don't try to copy ours -- allow your ideas and intuition to flow with the keywords supporting you.

If you can, record it on your phone or other device to listen back to. You'll learn a LOT by doing this.
