Tarot Course

Tarot Course

The Tarot is a fascinating subject and its application goes far beyond the aspect of fortune telling.

Oephebia’s passion for the Tarot led her to realise that it can also be a powerful tool for self-development. The symbolism of the cards has the potency to help connect our conscious self with the unconscious and higher self.

To learn how to unravel the magical world of the Tarot, you will begin a journey of self-discovery where you will encounter myths and legends from the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Norse and more. Astrological connections will be studied and Numerology and its application with the cards will give you a fascinating insight into an unknown world. This will provide keys in order to help you to open your unconscious and develop your intuition in a new way.

No prior knowledge of the Tarot is necessary to enrol. If you already know the cards, the course will help you to deepen your knowledge.

The Awakening tarot course offers a comprehensive study of the Tarot using guided visualisations for each Major Arcanum and the four suits of Minor Arcana.

You will enter the real world of the Tarot by studying:

Module I: (13 lessons)

  • A Brief History of the Tarot
  • Major Arcana:
  • Symbolism & meanings
  • Divinatory meanings
  • Reversed meanings
  • Guided visualisations
  • Reading techniques using fundamental layouts
  • such as  :
  • Daily card
  • Daily energies
  • Mind, Body & Spirit
  • Horseshoe
  • Pyramid

Module II: (9 lessons)

  • Minor Arcana:
  • Symbolism & meanings
  • Divinatory meanings
  • Reversed meanings
  • Guided visualisations for each suit
  • Tarot and Astrology
  • Tarot and Numerology.
  • Complex spreads that include:
  • Celtic Cross
  • Astrological Wheel
  • Past Present Future
  • Relationships


Each lesson contains a series of exercises which are aimed at developing your intuition, your sense of observation and of course, your knowledge of the cards. It is very important that you do your exercises on a regular basis for you to become comfortable with the cards and in gaining confidence and wisdom.

On average each lesson and their subsequent exercises will take between 1 to 3 hours per week to complete.

Rider Waite Smith

Material for the course

You will need the Rider Waite Smith tarot deck (Original, Universal, Radiant, Smith Waite borderless or Radiant Wise).
Tarot decks can be purchased from any good esoteric shop and of course, online.


However, be aware of fake tarot decks which are infiltrating the market. Please read Oephebia's blog about how to spot fake tarot decks.


The Awakening Tarot course is a private one-to-one tarot course via webcam.


Each lesson contained in module I lasts for one and a half hours and will be on a one-to-one basis with Oephebia, the emphasis being focused toward understanding the cards and their symbolism, relationships with each other, practical interpretation, actual readings etc. Please note that handouts of each lesson will be send to you by email, as a pdf format.


Each lesson incorporated in module II lasts for two hours and will be as above.

The course offers over thirty seven (37) hours of private one to one tuition with Oephebia.

Length of study

You will study at your own pace, although, having a routine will be beneficial in the sense of connecting your intuition with the symbolism of the cards. An average of one lesson a week is good to maintain your connection with the Tarot and to progress steadily.


The Awakening tarot course should be completed within six months (24 weeks) from your date of enrolment.


After this, if the course has not been completed within this period a new enrolment fee of £90 will be required to continue the course.

Tarot Certification

Tarot Certification

Students will be assessed on an ongoing basis and will awarded the Oephebia’s Tarot Tuition Certificate of Completion (Advanced Level) after successfully completing the course.

A code of ethics will also be signed to help maintain a high standard of readings within the tarot community.

Tarot Course Fees


  • £90 Enrolment fee (non-refundable)
  • £43 per lesson (Module I)
  • £48 per lesson (Module II)
  • £45 cancellation fee

Usually, tarot lessons are paid at the beginning of the month (4 lessons per month) so we can concentrate on the fun of learning instead of the nitty gritty of finances.

Some students prefer to pay per module (as it acts as an incentive to do the tarot course for them) or even the whole tarot course.
It is obviously according to each individual.

Tarot Course Enrolment


Enrolment is once a year, every September (at any time as long as it is September).

As the Awakening Tarot tuition course is very popular and places are limited, students will be asked to pay an enrolment fee (non-refundable) in order to secure their place.


The course is suitable for people everywhere regardless of geographical location and it is suitable for total beginners.

Have a look at the testimonials or contact Oephebia for an informal chat regarding learning the tarot.


Prior to enrolling on the course, an informal chat via webcam will occur. It will be an opportunity for you to ask questions about the course, but also to "feel" your teacher, to see if you will be comfortable to spend a few weeks in Oephebia's company.

Also, the informal chat will be an opportunity for Oephebia to let you know about the course and to feel if you are a suitable candidate for the course. This is an in-depth course and dedication in terms of time is essential to gain a good level of proficiency with the Tarot.
