Tarot lessons: Learn to Read Non-Scenic 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 non-scenic 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.
