Event Details

One of the first obstacles both newer and more experienced tarot readers confront is the reversed tarot card. Traditionally, tarot cards can be read different depending on whether they appear right-side-up or upside-down. But traditional book meanings for upside-down cards (called "reversals") are often blunt, negative, and lacking in nuance. This workshop offers fresh, modern approaches to reading tarot cards in reversed position that come from a perspective of self-empowerment and personal affirmation.


What to Expect

This 1.5 hour workshop in a central DC location is appropriate both for newer tarot readers looking to dive a little deeper as well as more experienced readers looking for a fresh approach to reversed cards.

The workshop will offer moderated discussion and interactive exercises that address different methods of bringing nuance to reversal interpretation, understanding how reversals can reinforce or change our understanding of a card's position within a spread, and whether reading reversals is even necessary at all.

This workshop will take place at Cove Coworking in Dupont Circle. Free beverages are available in the lounge area when you walk in. Once there, ask the person at the front desk for the West Coast Conference room.

How to Prepare

Students should already have a basic knowledge of tarot, including a complete understanding of the meanings of major arcana cards, the general meanings of the minor arcana suits, and have performed at least a few readings for themselves or others in the past. Students should bring a deck with them that they have experience reading with, and are encouraged to bring materials to take notes.
