Hi. I'm Liz Worth

And I believe that anyone can learn how to read tarot cards

But the problem that beginners face is that it's not always clear how you should start learning, or where.

There's a lot of information out there about tarot, but it can be convoluted with confusing, outdated techniques.

I'm here to help demystify the process for you so that you can start accessing the wisdom that tarot offers.

The truth is that there are basic elements you need to learn to become a good tarot reader. And it doesn’t rely purely off intuition or gut-feeling.

Another thing is that tarot doesn’t have to be complicated.

In fact, one of the biggest mistakes new tarot readers make is the assumption that the more complexity they add to their tarot readings, the better it will be.


It’s easy to become blocked and intimidated with tarot when you’re trying to do too much at once, or when you’re not clear on what’s most important to learn first.

After writing two books on tarot and teaching a few hundred souls like yourself how to read the cards, I’ve developed Tarot Foundations, a program specifically designed to make tarot reading deceptively simple, yet deeply powerful.


"If you are new to tarot and are looking for someone to give you a thorough background of the cards, then Liz Worth is the teacher you seek. She is especially supportive in helping you use your own intuition to 'hear' the messages from the cards in your own personal way."

Chris T.

Picture this:

You’ve just picked up your first tarot deck and you can’t wait to crack it open. You open the box, shuffle the cards, and lay a few down.

And then you stare at them. And stare some more. And then you wonder: “How am I supposed to know what they’re telling me?”

Undeterred, you keep at it. You invest in some guidebooks, binge on tarot podcasts, and start hunting down every how-to tarot video you can find on YouTube.

But before you know it, you’re inundated with information and you have more questions than answers. You’re not sure if you should be reading reversals, or which tarot spreads you should be working with, and you can’t figure out how to even begin to memorize every tarot card in the deck.

If this sounds familiar, you’re not alone.

This course is for you if:

  • You feel overwhelmed by tarot;
  • You aren’t sure you’re asking the right questions in your readings;
  • You don’t feel like you can take your readings to a deeper, more meaningful level;
  • You’ve been trying to learn tarot for a while but it doesn’t seem to click;
  • You need a refresher course to help you break through some blocks or bad habits you’ve developed along the way;
  • You’re brand new to tarot and want to start off on the right foot;
  • You want to use tarot for practical guidance, self-discovery, and everyday life – without any esoteric mumbo-jumbo getting in the way.

This course is NOT for you if: 

  • You are looking for tarot short cuts or "hacks"; 
  • You want to learn astrological or Kabbalistic correspondences to tarot; 
  • You want to learn bigger, more complex spreads like the Celtic Cross (that gets covered in my intermediate level-courses!)

What Tarot Foundations focuses on:

Forget the esoteric "woo." What you really need to know about tarot is how to apply the cards to your everyday reality. Tarot Foundations teaches you deceptively simple techniques.

Learning 3-Card Readings

One common mistake tarot beginners make is trying to learn complicated tarot spreads too soon. A 3-card reading will give you all the practice you need.

See the cards in action through sample readings and a variety of real-life questions. Learn how to put your readings into context.

Learning on tarot's most popular deck

"There are so many tarot courses out there. How do I know Tarot Foundations is right for me?"

Learning how to read tarot is a process. It takes time, and this course is created to help you develop the patience and discipline required to learn tarot.

That's just one reason Tarot Foundations stands apart from other tarot programs.

I'm not a fan of cutting corners and I don't believe in rushing the process. Instead, this course honours the fact that the definition of a "beginner" in tarot is pretty wide, and so the lessons are set up to help you make clear connections to your tarot cards - whether you've just bought your first deck, or you've been studying for a while.

This course is for you if: 

  • You want to start with the basics 
  • You're ready to learn how to do 3-card readings 
  • You want someone to walk you through all 78 tarot cards 
  • You want help to connect with the cards beyond basic memorization
  • You get stuck in your own head or you're always second-guessing yourself, and you value the opportunity to have access to a teacher throughout these 15 weeks 
  • You need help with the Court Cards, Major Arcana, and tarot's suits of Wands, Cups, Swords and Pentacles - basically, you want to know your deck inside and out 
  • You want to deepen your spiritual connection to tarot's four elements of earth, air, fire, and water
  • You're ready to do the work that tarot requires 

"After taking the tarot class I feel a much stronger and focused connection with the cards. In the beginning the images and meanings were shrouded in mystery. By the end I was naturally and intuitively reading and working with them as if they were an old loveable friend."

Along with your weekly worksheets, you will receive a PDF guidebook that outlines the basic components of tarot. This guidebook is exclusive to the Tarot Foundations course and is not available anywhere else.

Learning how to read tarot can be one of the most significant decisions you make.

Tarot helps to strengthen your intuition and deepens your self-awareness, which in turns deepens your connection to the world around you.

Tarot gives you the power to trust yourself more, make clearer decisions, and welcome new awakenings and insights that can change the course of your life.

About Liz Worth

I'm a tarot reader, astrologer, and the author of two books on tarot: The Power of Tarot and Going Beyond the Little White Book: A Contemporary Guide to Tarot.

I have facilitated talks and workshops about tarot, astrology, and magic for the Northwest Tarot Symposium in Portland, Oregon; the Readers Studio in New York City; and the Light and Love Tarot Reading Marathon in Montreal, and others. I have also been a guest teacher for the Biddy Tarot Community and Ethony’s Tarot Summer School. My clients have included Soho House, Dynamite, Fossil, and AOL Canada, and more. 

I have seen tarot change people’s lives, both through the information it offers in readings, and through the power of learning how to read the cards.

I don’t believe there is a wrong way to read tarot, and I don’t believe anyone has to have a special “gift” to do it. In fact, I think everyone can learn tarot, and that this is truly a tool that we can all use.

Tarot helps you get back to who you are. It teaches you how to look within for the answers and wisdom you need.

Once you start working with it, it will change you in unexpected, profound ways. Be ready for it, stay open to it, and answer the call if it’s inviting you in.
