Welcome to the Melanated Classic Tarot Course! I am your facilitator, Oubria Tronshaw & I am so glad to have you here!
A little bit about me- I’m super awkward at describing myself. I am a woman, a mom, a writer, a teacher & a survivor. And a really, really hard worker (Virgo). We’ll get to know each other more when you send me your assignments, because I’ll ask you to share some things about yourself as it relates to the tarot, & I will do the same.
A little bit about the course- Each lesson/ module is broken down into three parts, wherein basically, I tell you what I’m finna tell you (pre-reading), then I tell you (video playlist), & then you tell me what I told you (homework). I explain things in a very organic way (you’ll see what I mean) because I like to give information in a way where it guides you to turn on the lights for yourself, rather than me running around your mind flipping switches. I am a teacher who creates questions within you so that you can ask them, so please email me all your questions & comments & I will answer. (email@example.com)
A little bit about tarot- To understand the system of tarot, there are a few basic things you should understand:
There are two sets of cards within any traditional deck. These are the Major Arcana & the Minor Arcana.
Each card within the Major Arcana represents either a planet or an astrological sign. There are 22 Major Arcana cards, & these represent the 12 astrological signs & the 10 planets.
Each card within the Minor Arcana represents a combination of two Major Arcana cards.
The Major Arcana is the representation of the heavens.
The Minor Arcana is the representation of how the combinations of energies in the heavens manifests through experiences on earth.
As above, so below.
A little bit about the pre-reading: Each reading selection will be taken from the Members Only Section of Oubria.com. The password is: pentacle (all lower case) You'll need to go back & forth between the reading selections & the modules posted below, so prepare to have two to three tabs open at a time.
& about the assignments: Take your time. This class is Spirit led & the Most High moves in Its own divine timing. Also, if any documents won’t open, email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) immediately & I will send them to you another way.
Without any further adieu-
modules 1-8 (move at your own pace)
