About the Author/Instructor
Born, raised, and still residing in upstate New York, Amy Tripp has always had a passion for
the unknown and the mysteries surrounding everyday living. She studied and practiced Tarot for
many years, earning a certification, and giving professional readings online. After a several
year hiatus, she returned to Tarot reading and began to focus on exploring the beautiful images
of the classic Rider-Waite Tarot deck. By studying the images and letting her intuition guide
her, she became reacquainted with the cards and gained a deeper understanding of their
symbolism. It was then she realized that a thorough intuitive examination of the Tarot cards
represented a good way for anyone to learn the Tarot, and she set out to polish her own notes
into a course.
A lifelong learner, Amy is an avid student of writing, photography, meditation, dream
journaling, cosmic consciousness, numerology, runes and palmistry. Amy has written several
unpublished novels in the genres of horror, suspense, romance and children's books. Her hobbies
include writing, reading, knitting, gardening and spending time with her family. She lives with
her husband of 25 years and her two sons.
