Tarot Basics: The Major Cards

In this workshop students will take a deep dive into the Major Arcana, the 21 “trump” cards in the tarot deck. These cards represent major life moments and tend to stay for longer periods of time. Then, students will learn the meaning of each card, The Fool’s Journey, and how the Major Arcana can be looked at as a life path.
