Learn To How To Be A Confident Tarot Reader

The Tarot is an incredible tool for healing and creating positive change in people's lives. A good Tarot Reader can use the Tarot to help people through challenging life experiences and difficult choices. It assists with finding clarity and facilitates spiritual growth.

The Tarot is a large system and it can be overwhelming when learning the meanings of the 78 cards. Especially when each card could have a completely different meaning depending on the focus of the reading.

Learning The Tarot Doesn't Have To Be Overwhelming...
It Can Be A Fun And Transformational Experience.

The Tarot Reader Certification course (also called Tarot Apprentice) is an interactive Tarot experience and a living Tarot book. It will guide you to becoming you own Tarot authority.

Is this Course for Me?

This course has been specifically designed for three types of people: Sages, Rowan's and Beau's, discover which one you are below:

Are You A Sage?

Sage's are complete Tarot newbies. They have always been drawn to the imagery, magic and mystery of the Tarot, but have never taken the steps to learn it. The Sage gets a rush of excitement about learning the Tarot and is an information sponge. A Sage has a book or two (but has secretly never finished either of them, it's cool I won't judge) and looks up tarot meanings every once and a while but needs structure and a step by step process to really get engaged with the material.

The Tarot Apprentice course will rock the Sage's little socks. We don't just cover the 78 cards but a lot of Tarot readers' foundational information with a wealth of videos and writings.

This isn't just a bunch of text - you can get that from the magical oracle known as Google. This is an exploration through the written word, video, exercises, discussions with fellow academy members and a practicum. It is like having a one-on-one teacher and being part of a larger school community. (Tarot Hogwarts anyone?)

Are You A Rowan?

Rowan's learnt the Tarot years ago, but for the last few years their precious 78 cards have been collecting dust while whispering to be picked up again. Rowan's want a unique refresher that is not just another book. Rowan's are seriously thinking about developing their Tarot skills and want to rejuvenate their foundations.

For Rowan's The Tarot Apprentice reignites the fun and passion of the cards. By refreshing your love for the tool, you'll flourish in your practice. Rowan's know that they want to be the commander of their own life and want to work past some of the repeating cycles they have been creating using a hugely successful, multi-faceted and accessible tool.

Are You A Beau?

Beau's love learning as much as they can about the Tarot. They have drool-worthy collection of decks and are always looking to expand their knowledge on the cards and their connection to them. Beau's want to build a community and join in on conversations with like-minded Tarot People. Beau's know that the Tarot is their JAM and are going to have their own Tarot business in the future.

Beau's know their stuff, but are serious about getting professional development and certification under their belt before they start to build their Tarot empire. Having lifetime access to an ever growing course will help to ensure that reviewing and deeper learning is always available. This is also an invaluable step before taking the Tarot Readers Academy's Advanced and Tarot Boss courses.

What do past Students of yours say about the course?

My past students have all been in face to face workshops of mine, so please do keep that in mind with the testimonials. I think the online course is even better as it has more advantages.

'Ethony's Tarot Apprentice Certification program gave me the confidence I needed to start reading for other people. She's put together a comprehensive, well-organized course that breaks the complexity and mystery of the tarot down into easily digestible lessons. Her videos are packed with great tips and insight, and the reflection prompts and exercises helped me develop a much richer, deeper understanding of the tarot. Ethony is committed to making sure her students get what they need to become effective readers--she provides a wealth of knowledge on establishing and running a successful tarot business as well. This program is such an amazing value for anyone who's serious about starting a tarot business... I can't recommend it enough.' - Jenn Waltner - Phoenix & Lotus

'I originally had a mini reading with Ethony and loved her simple and matter of fact approach to her readings, she was caring but more importantly honest and skilful in revealing truths I couldn't yet see that did come to pass. Intrigued I then joined one of her tarot classes just to learn more about it rather than to do readings for others. The course was so fantastic, Ethony is sooooo passionate and knowledgeable about the tarot I was blown away by the depth of her understanding, her passion was infectious and the class became a highlight of the week, I learnt so much and gained a lot of confidence in my readings and now enjoy reading not only for myself but friends and family too.

I never thought I would pick it up so quickly and I know its thanks to Ethony's great talent and passion that I have grown in leaps and bounds in my readings and love and understanding of the tarot. I definitely recommend her courses and readings to everyone, even if you aren't a complete tarot newbie like I was you will re energise your skills and have a lot of fun too :)'- Sarah K, Perth – http://www.handmadewonderland.net'

"Taking the course was exactly what I needed at the right time - I am so excited to expand into this work and feel that the course has been the perfect framework and the nourishment that I had hoped for. Being guided deeper into my intuition is such a gift that will stay with me for the rest of my life." - Sarah - www.daydreamingwolves.com

'I have taken one of Ethony's courses and LOVED IT! She is bright, bubbly and super knowledgeable. She makes learning interesting and relevant. She is a good combination of feet on the ground but connected to the clouds. She inspires you to do your best. Excellent value for money and her level of knowledge with the Tarot is superb. I would recommend her she is AWESOME and AMAZING! She has a great connection with herself and her surroundings!'- Tasmar, Gosnells Western Australia

I think I am ready and other suggestions?

Please go on and view my videos on my channel before you sign up if you haven't already. If you have found us through the Youtube Channel.

Why? Because once upon a time, I dumped a lot of money into a course that I was super excited about. When I finally got around to doing the paid courses the presenters voice made me want to scream. I couldn't listen to it. Which meant over 50% of the content was useless to me. So, see if you like what I have to say on my weekly channel and how I say it.

Thank you for stopping by and if this course is right for you, if you feel excited about it, I look forward to meeting you and sharing your Tarot Journey with you.
