The Magician’s Tools offers fun and creative interactive exercises to introduce you to the cards, while your tarot skills flourish in an environment of on-going support and community. Learn new tarot techniques to move past the dictionary definitions provided by tarot books. Engage in practical, systematic methods for decoding the mysteries of the tarot images and connecting with your intuition.

Beginning Students: This course is excellent for absolute beginners as it teaches you to trust your intuition and to read from any illustrated deck. No memorization needed and leave your tarot books at home!

Intermediate and Advanced Students: This course is also good for intermediate and advanced students as it provides new and original ways of finding your answers in the cards themselves. This class also helps the experienced reader to get better attuned with the specific symbolism of each of their decks, finding patterns in the cards and the storyline of the spread.

What Joy's students are saying about this class:

“Joy Vernon is a generous, creative, inspiring teacher who genuinely cares about her students. I enjoyed every class and looked forward to the next. I miss them.”

“Joy has a gift for awakening the reader in even the most beginning student. She has had to wean me off of the books which, I think, is her biggest challenge and top goal.”

“I feel thankful for this course. I truly got out of it what I had hoped to and now am excited to keep learning and improve my skills by reading for myself in my own spiritual practice as well as others. Joy is a fantastic teacher with amazing, original exercises that are both profound and fun! Her wealth of knowledge is seemingly endless, as she draws on many esoteric traditions, mythologies and spiritual practices. I highly recommend this course!”
