The Archetypal
Tarot School

The Course to Master the Tarot through Depth Psychology
and the magic of the Archetypal Realm
beginning February 20th

Does this sound like you?

The first time you pulled the High Priestess, or the Sun, or the Fool, you got that shiver. You knew you’d discovered something precious, something that would draw you into new realms of spiritual wonder.

But as you learned the meanings of the cards, reading book after book, or watching endless YouTube videos, you realized there was something deeper to be discovered, you just didn’t know how to get there.

Because you don’t use the tarot to tell you your future, or to give yet another exhausting reading about whether or not to get back with an ex.

You first got excited about the deep power of the cards because you are on a psycho-spiritual journey of wholeness. You are seeking to meet yourself and the archetypal mysteries of life.

You may not call it this (yet), but you use the tarot to facilitate your journey of individuation, the path of becoming your truest self. And this is the very path guided by the archetypes of the tarot.

Would you love to...

Become fluent in the fundamentals of Jungian depth psychology and the archetypes?

Master archetypal interpretations of all 78 cards of the tarot & understand their deeper meanings?

Develop an orientation to the cards as a psycho-spiritual roadmap to individuation?

Cultivate confidence and flow in your readings by tracing the greater communication of the cards?

Grow a knowledge of mysticism, mythology, and philosophy to enhance your symbolic literacy?

Welcome to the Archetypal Tarot School

This program is a 9-week intensive for tarotists designed to teach you an archetypal and Jungian depth psychological approach to the cards.

There are 2 things that make this course unique:

1. Many Courses like this only focus on the Major Arcana. This one goes further.

Over 9 weeks, we’ll wind through the labyrinth of all 78 cards, learning their soul-guided messages that support your individuation. We’ll discuss the mystical, depth psychological, and mythological context of each card. And it’s not just about theory, but developing a practice to actually adapt the skill of reading the cards through an archetypal lens.

2. You can do it at your own pace in your own time, while still being part of the course community.

Most courses are structured as either: (1) Live lectures with a set deadlines and course completion date. OR (2) A streaming program that’s flexible but ultimately isolated.

The Archetypal Tarot School bridges the best of both worlds. The lessons are in short, consumable videos that you watch on your own time, but we also will meet for 5 bi-weekly community classrooms to discuss, practice, and go deeper.

Meet your instructor...

Mariana Louis is a professional tarot reader, writer, and educator based in New York City. Her journey with depth psychology began with the discovery of a little book called The Undiscovered Self by Carl Jung in her grandfather’s attic library, which led her to the pivotal decision to pursue a deeper study in mysticism, occultism, and the archetypes. Soon after she discovered the tarot, the Wheel of Fortune spun, and a new fate was forged.

After earning a master’s degree in Western Intellectual Traditions, Mariana launched Persephone’s Sister—a platform for spiritual education and tarot guidance, blending depth psychology, sacred feminism, and witchcraft. 



You will have access to the course for approximately 6 months, so if you need to go slower, go slower. That being said, it’s still recommended you try to stay up-to-date so that you can get the most out of our bi-weekly classrooms, as they will be opportunities not only to discuss but to process and practice, which is so important.

If you’re an abosolute tarot beginner who’s never opened a deck, this is not the course for you right now. This is an intensive program, meaning we really go quick and deep into the cards. Therefore, it’s best for students who have the basic card meanings memorized or at least familiarized.

That being said, you have 6 months to complete the course, so you can go slower or go back if needed. So if you’re up for a challenge, you’re more than welcome to join!

If you’re a tarot pro, this course is even more for you! We’re not discussing keywords or traditional meanings. We are exploring depth psychology, mythology, and mysticism as if we are collegiate scholars. It will be intellectually challenging and spiritually stimulating.

Yes, 5 scholarship seats at 50% off are available. These seats are reserved for serious tarotists who are not able to afford the full course price. You can apply for the scholarship HERE. The application deadline is February 10th. (Keep in mind there is no guarantee you will be selected!)  

There will be 5 classroom meetings, happening every other week of the school. Although the dates and times might vary depending on the students’ schedules, they will most likely be every other Sunday at 1pm EST starting February 26th. If there are lots of students in various time zones, we’ll likely rotate the times / days to accommodate more people.

But the classrooms are always recorded and the replay will be available the following day for those who can’t attend live.

Yes there is! Click here to access it.

The Archetypal Tarot School goes deep, but sometimes we need guidance to get to the heart of our personal depths.

In the mentorship program, Mariana will guide you through every step of the process, becoming your tarot coach in a truly immersive experience.

Apply here.

This course focuses primarily with the classic Rider-Waite-Smith deck, but you do not need to have that specific deck. Any Rider-Waite-Smith based deck works!

And do keep in mind that while this course goes beyond the traditional meanings of the cards, we will not be focusing on other tarot systems (such as the Marseilles or Thoth).
