This is a beginner’s course, albeit an intense one, on Western astrology, which will teach you how to read both a Placidus and a Whole Signs tropical chart. Taught primarily through a workbook set, you will gain a solid foundation in the study and have the skeleton and beginnings of your own astrology grimoire to show for it all. Producing your own astrology grimoire will be the main focus of the course and your “final project.” Videos of my talking head help you navigate your workbook. Although the course content itself is beginner level astrology, presuming no prior knowledge on the subject, the pedagogical approach is rigorous.
As a package, you get a video lecture and workshop series, a copy of my translations and annotations of the I Ching Book of Changes, an I Ching Oracle Deck, and dozens of additional handouts and reference materials. This course teaches the following divination methods: (1) two forms of the yarrow stalk divination method, one of which will be applied later in spell-crafting instructions per traditional Taiwanese witchcraft, (2) rice grains divination, and (3) coin toss. The course takes decidedly occult leanings and includes a five-part “Occult I Ching” series. There is also a Facebook study and resource group set up to bring you an I Ching social collective.
We often hear about using tarot for shadow work. This course takes that concept a step further to address how tarot and shadow work can be utilized to cultivate dynamic personal power. The more personal power you wield, the greater likelihood of success you’ll enjoy in achieving your goals. The course addresses how to source power from five specific reservoirs within you, corresponding with the architecture and metaphysical framework of the tarot. In terms of tarot proficiency, this course will be suitable for novices, but the course content itself may be intense. Tarot, social psychology, chakra strengthening, self-reflection, personal ritual, spell-crafting, and basic East Asian Qi energy work will be covered.
Note: “Tarot and Shadow Work” was first offered during Tarot Summer School 2017 at the Tarot Readers Academy.
This class is structured after a graduate-level course with a series of lectures plus guided tarot readings ritualized and crafted to show rather than tell you about tarot in witchcraft.
The lecture portion covers a comparative analysis of exoteric, psychology-based tarot reading vs. an esoteric, psychic-based tarot reading, and also tarot as a witch’s tool. We’ll cover the history and legacy of tarot in Western occultism, focusing in on applying Hermetic principles to the tarot. Then we’ll consider the role of tarot and witchcraft in the modern era.

An indispensable course for any practitioner of craft seeking to develop a deeper and broader metaphysical connection with the tarot, this video plus workbook course will cover using tarot for self-empowerment and how to adjust form and mechanics of tarot reading when using it as a tool for divination, for amplifying psychic ability, for communion with spirit contacts, or for mediumship work. This is an intermediate course that presumes proficiency with tarot (also presuming the Rider-Waite-Smith system) and that you are a practitioner of or deeply interested in occult craft. Subject matter also runs into esoteric and mystical applications of the tarot, so the tone of the course might not be right for everyone. Also, just so you are aware: the tenor and value propositions of this course goes in a diametrically different direction from Holistic Tarot.
The Opening of the Key is a five-operation inter-disciplinary divinatory procedure rooted in the adept traditions of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Today, given the publicly available records of the procedure, it can be used by tarot practitioners from all backgrounds. Learning the Opening of the Key (OOTK) isn’t about learning the OOTK. It is about deepening your understanding of divination. Through a series of eleven video lectures, a 50-page OOTK workbook, and a wealth of study guides, handouts, templates, and quick reference sheets, you will not only master the OOTK procedurally, but also learn basic astrology, numerology, and the Kabbalah.
