April 27th: CHARMCASTING 101
Do you have small bits and bobbins about, rocks and broken pendants and old keys? For this class, you'll need 13 of them to create your own Mediumship Kit. We'll make a dictionary of what they mean to you and give each other Magical Object and Charms readings. This simple, yet intuitive art is utterly personal to the charm thrower.

May 4th: TAROT 101
A question many beginners ask is, what is the difference between Tarot and Oracles? This is the Tarot section of our four part series! We'll cover the Major Arcana, the four suits and their elemental and numeric dignities, the court cards, and the archetypes.

May 11th: ORACLES 101
A common question for beginner inner explorers is... what is the difference between Tarot and Oracles? Oracles are vast, diverse, based on the artist's vision, and are far more intuitive. For this class, you will need to purchase Mildred Payne's Secret Pocket Oracle. It can be found on the Deviant Moon website. This Oracle can be read completely intuitively, so it is the perfect beginner Oracle. Access to the instructor's private oracle collection and time to search out the perfect Oracle of your dreams online will be allowed.

May 18th: LENORMAND 101
In early 19th century Paris, Mlle Marie Lenormand made a fortune for herself by accurately predicting Napoleon's rise to power ten years before it happened. Her simple, 36-card cartomancy fortune-telling deck fell into obscurity after the world went Tarot-crazy in the early 20th century, but its uncanny capacity for detail has ensured its come-back. Deceptively simple, this is becoming an essential tool for most modern diviners.
