A friend suggested I put my Beginners’ Tarot Course on Udemy, so I’m busy doing that at the moment. The photo above is a screen shot of the video editing suite I’m using.
Udemy is an online platform for sharing and taking online courses. I’ve had a peruse at the Tarot offerings and they all seem to be “learn Tarot in an afternoon” style. Yes, but then why not take the time to really learn the Tarot properly? I think some people would prefer that, don’t you?
My course will follow nearly the same format as the Beginners’ Tarot Course I ran in January, 12 weeks of weekly content, delivered straight to your inbox. However, the Udemy course will not be free. I haven’t decided on a fee yet, but I’ll certainly make sure it’s affordable.
Now I have a shiny new MacBook, I have the iMovie editor and it’s taking a while to get used to using it, the mobile version is a lot more feature-rich and the touch-screen makes editing so much easier than with a keyboard. By contrast, Udemy’s course builder looks to be flexible and user-friendly, the interface is intuitive and I might even be able to make some money with this. Ya never know.
My latest video for the Beginners’ Tarot Course is up on YouTube. I tell the class three ways I use Oracle cards. If you are interested in learning to read Oracle cards with me, you can join the Tokyo Tarot Oracle Card Meetup event, on Sunday, May 6th in Shinagawa, Tokyo. You can also join the next 12-week Beginners’ Tarot Course, scheduled for June. It’s free to join, if you are a Star Tarot newsletter subscriber.
I like getting blog posts in my mail, mainly because I’m super lazy and just want everything to land in my lap without going to the 1st world hassle of looking on a feed reader. Sigh.
Looking around the internet and seeing what other Tarotists do, TBH I’m not always that impressed with the standard of writing or the relevance of what’s being said. A lot of people just spout stuff they have read elsewhere which is so cringe-makingly wrong that you just wonder how they are going to be able to look at themselves in the mirror when they realise what a boo-boo they’ve made. Yikes. Some Tarot pros mainly post readings that they’ve done for themselves hoping prospects will find them searingly insightful, and then book a reading with them. Why yes, I have been watching John Oliver, why do you ask?
Mary K. Greer’s Tarot Blogis not like that. She’s a real Tarot scholar and a real Tarot lover, which to my mind is one super-duper combination. Not only that, but her posts are relevant, original, well-written and based on research she has actually done herself; and you get her blog posts in the mail, so you can read them over breakfast. Thank you and good morning!
I love the idea that we are evolving into a new type of human. I think that Lynne McTaggart’s intention experiments where thousands of people join together to create peace simultaneously is about as great as you could get. Am I gushing yet? Who cares.
In this talk, Barbara Marx Hubbard interviews Lynne McTaggart and they invite us to hold an intention together. It was an affecting experience to be sure. Check it out for yourself now, it’s free.
I can’t remember the amount of times people have said that they just can’t read Court Cards, it’s always been a real problem for them, and so on.
So as you know I’m half way through a Beginners’ Tarot Course, and we’ve just had Lesson 6, which is all about the Courts. So I thought I’d leave this one open for everyone to view, unlike the other lessons which are for subscribers only. You can see the lesson page HERE, or just click on the picture above and be taken to the video directly. If you want to join next time, subscribe to my newsletter.
