READING FOR YOURSELF WITH THE MELANATED CLASSIC TAROT
academy + tarot deck
Reading tarot cards is a life-long skill, that helps you communicate with the Most High & the highest spiritual realms for advice, guidance & insight to bless yourself and others. There are many different ways to read & interpret tarot cards, so its important to find the method that works for you. Some people are intuitive readers & the pictures "speak" to them. Others "hear" messages spoken by the images & benevolent spirit guides. And then there are those who study & memorize all the possible meanings individually.
The Melanated Classic Tarot Academy uses an organic, unified approach to teach the whole system of tarot by using the ancient frameworks of astrology & numerology, & then reflecting on your personal life experiences to ground the lessons. As you progress through the course, you'll discover that tarot is simply a collection of pictures that represent the cyclical phases of life. The more you reflect upon yourself, the better you'll understand your cards & the more you study your cards, the more you'll know about yourself.
(As above, so below. As within, so without)
Currently, the Melanated Classic Tarot Deck will be sent as a free gift upon completion of the Melanated Classic Tarot Academy. The class consists of 8 modules (including short, engaging homework assignments), & takes between 6 - 8 weeks to complete.
Why can't I just buy the tarot deck?
There are tons of amazing tarot decks in circulation & there's more representation in magical & metaphysical spaces than ever before. However this class + deck is for those who are serious about the system of tarot & its function as a communication tool with the Most High, the core self & your loving ancestors. If you are seeking a tarot deck because it seems "fun" or "cool," or simply because you feel drawn to the lovely melanated imagery, then this is not the deck for you (& that's ok!).
However if you feel called to this particular deck, then you are likely meant to do a specific spiritual work, either in your own life or in the lives of others, or both. If this is the case, please do not be put off by the... work. First the fundamentals (the class), & then the fun (the deck).
How do the classes work?
The course consists of 8 modules of intimate, informative videos (roughly 10 -15 videos per module) that thoroughly explain the symbolism, imagery, planetary & astrological associations, as well as numerology of each of the 78 tarot cards, one by one. Each module tackles a particular set of cards, for example, the first half of the Major Arcana (Module 1), the second half of the Major Arcana (Module 2), the Wands suit (Module 3), the Cups suit (Module 4), etc.
Before watching each module, you will complete a bit of light reading from the Members Only section on this website, to help prepare a place in your mind for the information you will receive. After watching the videos from each module, you will complete 1-2 written assignments meant to help you 1) explain the information to yourself using your own words & 2) relate the cards to your personal life experiences.
During the final module, you will use your knowledge of tarot & astrology to find the tarot cards present in your birth chart.
How much does all this cost?
The class is $110, & that cost includes your deck. You can either pay in one full installment, or two payments of $55. If you choose the split payment, you will receive the first four modules after the first payment, & the last four modules after the second payment. Once you've sent proof of completing the assignments associated with the first 7 modules to email@example.com, your deck will be shipped. Its arrival should coincide with your completion of the 8th & final module.
What happens once I've completed the class?
Once you've sent proof of completing the assignments associated with the first 7 modules to firstname.lastname@example.org, I'll send you a link to cover shipping costs ($6 domestic / $25 intl). Your Melanated Classic Tarot Deck will be sent to the physical address on file. Its arrival should coincide with your completion of the 8th & final module. (Note: Please send the assignments as you complete them to email@example.com & not all at once, so that I can offer feedback if necessary, or at the very least get an idea of how you're pacing yourself in the course).
