"And above all else to thy own self be true."
Over the years through teaching my Tarot, Astrology and Numerology classes, I have met so many wonderful people, some have become dear friends. The link for all of us coming together was our love of Tarot.
I have taught many people all at different levels, some understood the Tarot cards intuitively and they joined my class just to learn what the symbols mean, others would know nothing about Tarot and their hunger to learn is simply overwhelming for them.
Many mothers and daughters do my program together. By using the Tarot, what a wonderful way for mother and daughter to open up, share and talk with each other. And many friends do the class together this also assists with sharing the information way after classes have finished.
I often say to my students that I do not teach anything that they don't already know, they are just remembering. This alone brings confidence, then the sharing within the class also increases this confidence because you are not just learning from oneself but also from all the others in the class.
To learn Tarot in a class is so beneficial on so many levels, a lot of people cannot mention to their friends that they are learning Tarots so its good to meet new people and grow with them. You look forward to seeing each other every week and sharing the Tarot homework and weekly experiences.
Some people just want a change in career and/or are looking at earning a bit more of an extra income on the side. Many of my students are running their own Tarot businesses today, and with social media out there, its all about how creative your are.
I have tailored my Tarot in Action program so you would know enough about Tarot, read the right books and gain enough knowledge to then follow through to becoming a professional member with the Tarot Guild of Australia. And I am proud of all my students that are now Professional Tarot Readers through the Guild.
Then there are those that are really searching for something more in life are drawn to the Tarot. I have many people searching to fulfill a yearning within, answering questions and don't even know what questions to ask.
Many turn to Tarot during a long-term relationship break up,and the Tarot seems to fill in the blanks and help one understand the journey better, they also give something to turn to when you just don't want to speak with anyone.
Others they have lost their dream or direction, far away or lost family and friends, there are so many reasons why we are drawn to the Tarot. No matter at what stage of the journey you are at, the Tarot seems to help you understand.
I hope you can join me and together we can travel down this wonderful journey of learning 'The Art of Tarot.'

"My sisters said that I seemed unblocked from doing the Tarots class, that I've totally opened up, they can see it in my eyes and my expression, I have more flowing energy. -Vivienne

Tarot Class 2015
"Thanks Ruanna, I enjoyed the class and doing the test! -Eleanor
"Your beginners Tarot course is truly the most comprehensive Tarot course I have ever studied or come across. So thank you for teaching the cards on such a deep level. By covering the symbolism, colours, mythology, astrology and numerology associated with each card I really gained such a deep and profound appreciation and understanding of the cards. You were very generous in answering the many questions I had in regards to the Tarot and I also appreciated how you took the cards and the Tarot to another level by touching on many other topics such as metaphysics, psychology and just spirituality in general, which all do relate back to the Tarot and the profound spiritual wisdom contained in each card. I really gained so much from your beginners Tarot course and you were extremely generous in imparting your wisdom and really encouraging in taking my Tarot reading to another level by helping in practical ways and in also boosting my confidence in knowing that I can do Tarot readings for other people and valuing myself as a Tarot reader. I'm really looking forward to fine tuning my Tarot skills in your Advanced course so thank you!"-Rebecka
Tarot Class 2012
"Thanks very much for the certificate and the letter. In regards to feed back for your course I'd like to say that it was comprehensive, engaging, fun and interactive. I actually enjoyed it so much that I wished I had at least 2~3 days a week of tarot classes instead of one! I like how you incorporated in detail the symbolism, mythology, astrology, numerology, etc, into your explanations of each card. I also liked how you referenced quotes from psychologists and philosophers relevant to your teachings. As a result you had introduced me to some great authors such as Robert Johnson whom I've come to love. My respect and love for Tarot has grown and it's all thanks to you Ruanna!"-Akira
Tarot Class 2009
"Learning tarot with Ruanna has turned out to be a wonderful experience. Not only is she a warm and caring person who brings humour and compassion to her lessons, but her depth of knowledge, experience and love for her subject has made my learning experience both fun and highly informative. With her tarot classes you not only learn tarot , numerology and astrology, but also about life and your journey through it. Learning tarot has helped to guide me through my days, adding insight to my experiences and decisions. To my delight I have also discovered that many of my clients enjoy a touch of Tarot, adding a bit of extra insight to their healing or counselling session. It is both an honour and delight to have Ruanna share her knowledge with me."

"Personal rec here...I did this course with Ruanna a few years ago. It is fabulous, Ruanna is an amazing teacher. You will find out more about yourself in this course than you thought possible. A++ !" -Tamara
Tarot Class 2000
"For me Tarot in Action was a wonderful experience. The beginning of a profound journey of self-discovery. I loved the colour, the symbology and the pure wisdom of the cards. I also love the stories, thoughts and wisdom shared by everyone in the group. I now have the tools to tap into my intuition and unconsciousness. The cards confirm that I have many ways to respond to a situation or conflict. For me its all about choices. Tarot in Action, facilitated by Ruanna with such grace and humility, was tremendous fun. We laughed a lot. I would suggest this experience for anyone who wants to get in touch with their true Spirit." -Danny Tiomkin
