Marilyn's Signature Spread 13 Cards
For this option, I custom-create a spread that is specific to your question. This is a great option if you have multiple questions regarding the same issue.
A photograph of your spread and audio recording are provided. Time varies but an audio session for this type of reading is usually about twenty minutes or longer.
This option is great for just about any question:
You might have a question about a 'visitation' you've recently had, or what the message in a dream you might have had, or even if your house is haunted and what you can learn about its other 'residents.' Don't feel that you are limited to the mundane when choosing this reading option.
Of course, this spread works perfectly well for more down to earth questions about love and romance, the work place, and other social interactions.
Past Life Tarot Reading
Welcome to my Tarot Parlor! This reading is a real eye opener because it helps to fill in the blanks of your life that don't make sense. It touches on the key points that allow you to apply lessons learned from one life to your present self. Of course, we can't be sure which previous life we will tap into, which makes it all the more interesting. It's a complicated spread to navigate, but it's fascinating and meaningful to the individual who requests it.
Tirage En Croix 5 Card Tarot Spread
Welcome to my Tarot Parlor! This 5 card spread was developed by Swiss Occultist Oswald Wirth. It's a brief reading that helps clarify what is at the root of a situation, and can provide insight as how to proceed for the best possible outcome, what to focus on and what to avoid.
10 Card Celtic Cross Tarot Spread
Welcome to my Tarot Parlor! The Celtic Cross Spread covers many aspects of a situation, such as the root of the matter, what pitfalls to avoid, how those around you are involved or affected, and strengths to build upon for the best possible outcome.
This spread has been used by tarot readers since the turn of the last century. It was created by Arthur Waite to be used with his (then) new tarot deck that was illustrated by Pamela Colman Smith. This is a ten card spread.
16 Card The Next Twelve Month Cycle Spread
Welcome to my Tarot Parlor! This spread focuses on the next twelve months, beginning at any month of the year. Gives a great sense of the flow of the coming twelve months to help you prepare to go with the flow and make the most of it.
Tarot lessons: Learn to Read Pip or Tarot de Marseille Style Tarot Cards with Marilyn
This is the pre-recorded class option. The class is structured as a total of seven hours, spread over seven one hour classes.
Classes,dates and times are at your convenience since it is a pre-recorded format.
Marilyn will be available to answer all questions between lessons.
Student must have a pip-style deck for this class. The pips might be decorative, but they are not scenic.
A deck in the Waite-Smith or Thoth traditions will not be helpful for this course. You do not need to spend a fortune on a tarot deck for this course, and a few inexpensive and readily available decks mass produced decks which I recommend are: The Spanish Tarot by Fournier, Ancient Italian Tarot by Lo Scarabeo, Visconti Tarots Deck by Lo Scarabeo, and Claude Burdel Tarot of Marseille by Lo Scarabeo. The 1JJ Swiss Tarot deck, which is a Besancon styled deck, may also be used. Even the Fergus Hall deck created for the James Bond film Live and Let Die would work. All of these decks are available for about $30.00+- USD. Choose a deck based on your personal aesthetic. But it must be pip-style or TdM for this class.
The format is a total of seven hours delivered via video sessions. I release them over a period of 7 seven weeks because each lesson has a weekly homework assignment and I want everyone to have a week to digest and live with the lesson before moving on.
Assignments to be completed on your own are included with each lesson and will expand the scope and time spent on each lesson.
Marilyn will be available for questions in between lessons.
This course is designed to allow the student to work at her/his own pace and have access to Marilyn with questions that might come up while learning between classes.
Seven hours won't make anyone a tarot master, I've been reading and interpreting the cards for nearly forty-five years, and I still encounter learning myself, but these lessons represent decades of research and allow my students to save years of research and get to learning more quickly.
Lessons include a little bit of history to put the cards in context and lots of exercises for hands on experience, so if history isn't your thing, this class might not be the one for you. Tarot history is fascinating though, and if you love tarot, I think you'll love it.
Lessons can go on for as long as you like, per special agreement with Marilyn, but the base format of this class is seven hour long sessions.
