Today we have the 5th question from the list produced by 78 Keys and New Moon Tarot. The question today is: When and where did you give your first reading?
Well, you know I said yesterday that I learned the Tarot thanks to TABI? Well, they also hold responsibility for where and when I gave my first reading. It was on their training course, which is based on Joan Bunning’s Book & website: Learning the Tarot. That book is the basis of their course, but of course, it’s tweaked to be interactive, with feedback from the tutors and other students.
If you’re talking about where and when did I give my first face to face reading? that’s a different question and I think that was to a colleague when he and I were working at Serco. I got terribly confused with suits and arcana and learned very quickly to control my anxiety and emotions. Strangely enough, my martial arts training came into focus when I engaged my brain and allowed myself time to breath!
Like the 10 of Arrows, I learned a lot from my mentors and tutors at TABI, though not all of it has been plain sailing! Some I am now happy and proud to call friends. If I ever want an honest answer from my Tarot peers, I know exactly to whom I can ask. I am a member of a great Association and I’m proud and humbled to be its current Chairman.
I hope you’re enjoying these answers and if you’d like to share this blog entry with others, there’s a good wee list below this post and I’d appreciate it. Alternatively, you can book your direct Tarot reading with me right here.
