About The Event

In this interactive, well-structured and highly visual course, one of the world’s foremost experts in the Marseille tarot teaches students how to read it.

Hailing from the 17th century, this legendary system is rich with its own meanings and symbolism. Over four weeks, Adrien Mastrosimone delves into the distinct imagery of its 22 ‘major arcana’, exploring everything from colour interpretation to the importance of 'line of sight' (the direction a figure is facing). There’s plenty of opportunity to practise throughout, so by the final session, everyone can perform their own Marseille tarot readings.

The course is structured as follows:

Week 1 – Wed 20 Mar

Short history of the Marseille tarot, introduction to ‘The Fool’s Journey’

Week 2  – Wed 27 Mar

Exploration of the major arcana, part 1

Week 3 – Wed 3 Apr

Exploration of the major arcana, part 2

Week 4 – Wed 10 Apr

Guidance and techniques for reading a 3-card spread

Adrien provides both practical advice on forming powerful questions and a host of methods for linking the cards together holistically, so they can be read as a ‘complete sentence’. In the last week, participants have the chance to bring their own questions and get coached live on their reading technique, further solidifying their understanding of the cards.

This is one of the world’s most comprehensive English-speaking courses on the French school of tarot and is suitable for complete beginners alongside those with experience reading other decks. It can be combined with Adrien’s 4-week online course on its 56 minor arcana cards (starting on 17 April). We recommend doing both, in any order, to gain a full understanding of the Marseille system.

Please bring a Marseille tarot deck to each online session. (For questions about decks, email You will also need a flat space to lay out the cards. All classes are recorded, and able to be viewed by students throughout.

Adrien Mastrosimone was born in southern France’s city of Marseille and is an acknowledged expert in the eponymous tarot. With over 20 years’ experience in the art, he started reading the cards in his teens and went on to study under several masters of this traditional system. Adrien's rigour and personal warmth make him a hugely popular tutor. He is a singer and dancer by profession, having worked for many years in opera and ballet companies across Europe. Website:
