"Many people will walk in and out of your life,
but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.
To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others use your heart.
Anger is only one letter short of danger.
If someone betrays you once, it is his fault; if he betrays you twice, it is your fault.
Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.
He who loses money, loses much; he who loses a friend,
loses much more, he who loses a friend lose all.
Beautiful young people are accidents of nature,
but beautiful old people are works of art.
Learn from the mistakes of others,
you can't live long enough to make them all yourself.
Friends, you and me... you bought another friend... and then there were 3...
we started our group... our circle of friends...
and like that circle... there is no beginning or end...
Yesterday is history... Tomorrow is mystery... Today is a gift"
A Couple of my Favourite Tarot Books
There are many Tarot Books out there, I suggest collecting many and using them all as reference books. Searching for Tarot books at second hand book shops is also a fun thing to do.
I recommend to all my Tarot students once they finish with my program to purchase Mary K. Greer Book Tarot For Yourself. It's an excellent workbook that will take you through various excecises.
Also Rachel Pollack's book 78 degrees of Wisdom is a great book for reversed card meanings and a must have book for every Tarot readers book shelf.
How to become a Professional Member of the Tarot Guild of Australia
I have designed my Tarot in Action program to cover all the different modalities one needs to know about for you to then work through the transition process and become a professional Member of the Tarot Guild of Australia.
I recommend doing a lot of Tarot readings practice for friends and families. You will also need to read a few different books to gain a variety of knowledge from different masters of Tarot like Mary Greer, Rachel Pollack, or some psychology books by Carl Jung, etc...
Doing other workshops ie: Counselling, Astrology, Kabbalah or even Crystals and Dream workshops wouldnt go astray either. All these different modalities will assist you in understanding a wider view point.
With a couple of years of focussing your efforts and with the support of the Tarot Guild mentors, the door is open for you to enter a wonderful world Tarot on a Professional level.
The Tarot Guild run monthly workshops on the 2nd Saturday of the month covering a wide variety of subjects on Tarot.
