Learning how to work with the cards in depth through cartomancy is only the beginning. When people think about tarot cards, visions of psychic readings and divination of the past and future come to mind. Those applications are but a fragment of the power of tarot which is a highly sophisticated system of the elements of our universe that we can develop into potent magical operations. The 78 cards of the tarot can transcend their traditional use in spirituality into the most creative of rituals, designed with both their astral essences and magical formulae. Once you have learned how to unlock the portals represented by each card, it reveals the components of our reality and places them into the hands of the magician. A traditional tarot course will teach you about the cards and how to read them and I wanted to create something different, for those like myself who want to not only learn the tarot but also work with the cards in their ritual practice for witchcraft and ceremonial magick.
In this course you will learn how to go beyond reading the cards to working with them in spiritual ceremonies. We will explore how to travel to the worlds of the cards and how they teach us about the nature of reality and how we can control our destiny by accessing the spirits of the cards. I share my experience as a student in ceremonial magick and initiate in various magical orders, to reveal hidden blinds and esoteric secrets contained within the cards and through the Thoth tarot to help you go deeper into this map of the universe than ever before. I also share my best secrets for how I use my skills as a tarot reader to change people’s lives and teach you how to apply that to starting or enhancing your own tarot business. This course is for those who wish to learn how to read tarot cards with any deck and to awaken the spirits of your cards and call them to work along with you.
