The King of Cups, the Devil and Death stare up at you. The woman across the table gasps as she points to the Devil and Death. Your mind’s a blank. What do you say? What’s the story? HELP! Take a deep breath…relax…it’s easy…Tarot reading is about telling stories. It’s about seeing patterns in the images on the cards, about helping people understand the story that is unfolding through the cards and what it means for them at this time.
In this class Linda Marson discusses story elements (characters, plot, theme, mood, pace) and where to find them in the tarot. A major focus of the sessions is on techniques for reading the cards which relate to:
- reading the pictures
- linking the cards
- communicating messages
- structuring a reading
- helping clients formulate questions.
