In addition to containing practical information about conducting readings including how to interpret reversed cards and approach card combinations it discusses a wide range of theories that apply to tarot. In this vein, there is discussion about Hermeticism, the Kabbalah, astrology and Jungian theory in relation to tarot.
A look at the iconography of tarot and its evolution is included to aid your understanding of the images on the cards. Although most useful for those who use a Marseilles-based deck, Rider-Waite deck users will also find the course useful, as these images and their associations were used as a basis for the Rider-Waite. While many of the meanings would have been common knowledge in the past, and indeed when the Rider-Waite deck was designed, some are no longer as well-known and arent necessarily addressed in tarot books.
The Advanced Tarot Diploma Course also includes modules on designing your own spreads and tarot cards to enable you to further personalise your tarot readings to suit your personal approach.
A discussion on card decks, other than tarot, that are used for divination not only outlines the make-up of such decks but also considers techniques that you might find useful to adapt to tarot reading.
Finally, the Advanced Tarot Diploma Course contains a module that addresses going into business as a tarot reader for those who are considering taking it up professionally. It discusses a number of issues you need to be aware of and gives advice on how to set up and operate a business as a professional tarot reader.
