This is Tarot Wisdom You Have Never Seen Before
As an experienced practitioner, you know that one of the greatest gifts of the tarot is how it can open a door to a universal understanding and empathy for the human condition.
The Birth Cards are the tarot's front door, with the welcome lights blazing.
They reveal the fundamental starting place of self-awareness, and they are the tarot's first means of self-knowledge. To know anyone's Birth Cards is the beginning of knowing them.
“The Tarot Psychology Course: Birth Cards is like no other. It focuses on the tarot cards corresponding to your birthday yet goes far beyond that. You will recognize a whole spectrum of evolutionary possibilities, which reveal a potential unfolding of your personal destiny. Each lesson introduces and builds on priceless techniques and methods for experiencing the energies of the cards and for making them your own. Ultimately, it teaches you to have faith in the natural equilibrium that each Birth Card set represents.”

“I have long admired Wald Amberstone for his deep knowledge of the Tarot and its complex esoteric traditions.
Even more impressive than his direct teaching that I've been lucky enough to experience has been seeing and hearing the students who've studied with him and Ruth Ann Amberstone at The Tarot School in New York. Their thorough knowledge and ease with the mysteries of the cards is the best tribute to their teachers.
Now, reading the lessons of this course awakens something else in me, a kind of awe at the beauty and depth of the writing.
Speaking with the awareness of a philosopher and the voice of a poet, Wald gives us the Splendor of not just the Tarot, but of this strange life we live, half in the struggles of the body and half in the mysteries of spirit.”
— Rachel Pollack, incomparable master tarot author, scholar, deck creator, and teacher
The Birth Cards Course Includes:
Decades of Distilled Wisdom from Two of Tarot's Most Treasured Teachers
You'll be introduced to the Amberstones' Birth Card calculation system, developed over 20 years ago independently of other methods (of which they were not even aware at the time).
They began testing it almost immediately in the wider tarot community. As one early collaborator notes:
“In 2002 the Amberstones were looking for a psychologist willing to test out their Birth Card system with actual psychotherapy clients. I volunteered to try it on myself and, if it worked, use it with any clients that I thought could benefit.
The moment I looked at myself through the lens of my Lovers/Devil Birth cards, I found that they illuminated things about me that I had not previously been able to put into words. I realized that I had just been given an unexpectedly powerful new tool that I could easily integrate into both Tarot Counseling and traditional psychotherapy. My clients love it! The people I read for love it! I do it for random strangers and they become new friends…
After working with the Amberstones' Birth Card system for 18 years, I thought that I had nothing more to learn. Then, I received their new Birth Card Course and realized that I had only scratched the surface of what was possible. There are new insights on every page, and I am thrilled how this new material is deepening my understanding. I highly recommend this Birth Card Course to anyone who loves Tarot and wants a deeper insight into Birth Cards and an easy to understand, non- pathologizing perspective on personality issues.
— Elinor Greenberg, PhD, CPTR, author and internationally renowned Gestalt therapy trainer
This simple but powerful tool is your passport to a stunning new way of understanding the cards. With it, the Amberstones will guide your journey through each defining landscape of the Birth Cards so that you can experience the cards in a multitude of dimensions.
Each Birth Card lesson is an evolutionary step and examines:
The Journey of Emergence
The Journey of Return
The Essential Task
Unintegrated and Imperfect Realizations
The Defining Question
These lessons are designed to be studied in order, each building on the previous one. From this carefully crafted method, a synergistic wealth of insights and inspiration results. However, with all the materials at your fingertips, your self-study experience is up to you.
— Lorrie Morgan, Founder and CEO, RedHotCopy
Did we mention?
You get a complete course within this course that may well awaken a new passion in your relationship with the cards.
The art of seeing the Major Arcana as Birth Cards begins by paying attention to three kinds of visual imagery the Amberstones call Color, Costume and Choreography.
As they explain, “Working with Birth Cards entirely depends on and begins with learning to see the cards differently, and possibly for the first time. Here, everything is in the details.”
This lavish gift of discernment is woven into every lesson and is just one more example of the exceptional value in the Birth Card Course.
Is there a particular deck I should use?
Naturally, we understand that everyone has their personal favorites, so we encourage you to enjoy the Birth Cards with the deck(s) you connect best with. However, to take full advantage of Color, Costume and Choreography, we recommend the Universal Waite Deck for its subtle use of color and clarity of the symbols.
“Since the late 1990s, the Angeles Arrien method of working with the birth cards has been one of my favorite ways to study, teach, and read the tarot. So while I am always inspired by the Amberstones' work, I was not sure their approach to the birth cards would offer much new territory for me, personally.
I could not have been more wrong!
I was not expecting this course to trigger a mind-boggling evolutionary leap, but that is exactly what happened over the course of the program.
One minute, you are mulling over their beautiful insights about the relationship between, say, the Hermit and the Moon. Then suddenly you realize you are immersed in a multi-dimensional symphony of infinite variations that have left you profoundly changed — as a reader, and as a human being.
This course is a masterpiece from two of modern tarot's greatest treasures. Brilliant and indispensable for all serious readers.”
— Beth Owl's Daughter, teacher, writer, author, priestess, and tarot mystic
As you may imagine, this material is very rich and multifaceted. Thus, it merits a slow, methodical absorption. That's why, drawing on their more than 80 years of combined experience teaching, the Amberstones have included a dynamic repertoire of proven practice techniques and exercises.
✵ Step by brilliant step, you will sharpen your understanding and build your expertise.✵
Benefits of Choosing the Degree Program
The Tarot School's system of Birth Cards is unlike others you may have encountered (unless they learned it from us). It is extremely deep and comprehensive, based upon decades of research and development. It is an excellent program for self-study and self-understanding. But if you are a professional tarot reader, you also have the opportunity to become a Certified Tarot School Birth Card Practitioner by enrolling in the degree program. This will help you stand out from the crowd by letting your clients know you have something special to offer them.
What credentials will I receive?
In addition to becoming a Certified Tarot School Birth Card Practitioner, you will receive a Tarot School 2nd Degree. (Tarot School Degrees are cumulative so if you already have one or more, this will give you a 3rd, 4th or 5th Degree, etc). Personal coaching is also available to degree program students.
What is the coaching process like?
You are mentored one-on-one by Wald Amberstone, who will be there to guide you throughout the process of completing the lessons and getting your certificate and degree. He will be there to answer your questions and help you see things you might have otherwise missed.
Wald has a special ability to relate the lessons to your own life through the conversational magic of your coaching sessions. This process makes the material highly personal and accessible.
Not only is it more fun to do the work with someone than going it alone, Wald will act as an accountability partner helping you to keep on track. As a result, you will gain more and more power and prowess as you go through the course!
I am a newbie. Will this course work for me, too?
Yes! The Tarot School Birth Card Course will deepen your tarot experience no matter what your level of study.
Or you might be wondering…
Is this the same material they have in their audio course, workshops and live classes?
While it was necessary to repeat a few things, the Birth Card Course is unlike anything they have taught before.
“I've been studying Tarot Birth Cards with Wald and Ruth Ann both live and by recording since I started with them in 2002. I also use what I learned about Birth Cards in my own readings.
This is definitely a brand new and highly expanded version. I just completed the new Lesson One and already have had new insights.”
— Beth Palladino, New York
A Revolutionary New Way to Divine the Grandeur of Our Lives
Make no mistake. While the work itself is not overly complex, there is nothing about it that is simplistic or stereotypical.
As the Amberstones write:
Listen — don't you hear it? That most rare and delicious presence of the unknown is singing to you. The mystery of the multiverse is knocking on your door.
Open it and you will hear this song of the world with a new understanding and resonance beyond imagining.
— Theresa Reed, aka The Tarot Lady — author and renowned tarot teacher and reader
