Where to begin...Tarot with Fern Mercier has been such an incredible highlight and addition to my year. I have wanted to learn tarot for a while now so when I discovered Fern I was thrilled. I am so enamoured with not only Fern’s vast and prolific knowledge of tarot, imparting understanding effortlessly, her relatable way of teaching and each evening is such fun! Because of Fern, tarot has become a delicious indulgence that feeds my spiritual soul and Fern is the most perfect person to learn from and with. She is warm, highly intelligent, hilariously funny with such an incredibly deep and rich understanding of her subject. I am so excited to attend each week (have not missed a class) and leave feeling inspired and uplifted. I can’t believe how comfortable I am with tarot now and how much I have learned and retained. I feel so lucky to have found her. I cannot recommend
Fern Mercier highly enough.

I began learning astrology with Fern in 2014. Originally it was a 6 week course of private lessons however 3 weeks in I knew I wanted to continue. Fern’s passion for astrology comes through her teaching which in turn has inspired me as her student. She has so much wisdom to share, her knowledge is profound. I always look forward to my time with her.

Private tuition that suits your lifestyle is easy to arrange.

Sometimes it’s not always convenient to come to a night class to learn.

As a beginner it is not always practicable for you to attend a night class.

Likewise you may be an old hand at Tarot or have been studying Astrology for years and find it beneficial to have a mentor, or take a refresher course. 

Personal sessions with Fern are available in either Astrology and/or Tarot Class(es)

A minimum package is 6 classes (one and half hours long), the cost is $300 ($50 a session).

You can book in the class as it suits your timetable and these classes can continue for as long as you need.
