This was such an informative and immersive class. Sarah was able to keep it interactive despite the Zoom aspect and I will say I believe I can do a great reading just from this one class. I would recommend her for any class she offers and hope she continues to do them remotely beyond covid :)

This was a really fun way to learn about the history and meaning behind tarot cards! Sarah is a knowledgeable, energetic, patient, and fun instructor. Notes are included with a small additional materials fee, which will be useful for practicing readings after the class.

Attended: Astrology for Beginners - Beyond the Sun Sign (Online)


It's a LOT of information but it was broken down very nicely. I had a momentary frustration when we were asked what qualities can be found in people for each Zodiac sign. I didn't know how I was supposed to know that until I asked: look to the people we know. If we were told that up front, I would have had a better understanding. And, at the end of the session, I was able to read a teeny portion of someone-who-was-attending's birth chart based on the information we received and I got it right! The $12 material fee is for her notes afterwards and is required and payable at the beginning of the session.

Sarah was very knowledgable and very easy to follow. It was an intimate class and I am excited to take what I learned and apply it to my natal chart. I would definitely take another course with her.

Aaron is very knowledgeable in Cannabis. I feel that it would have been more helpful if there was a detailed "how to" flow sheet on the cultivation process. There has to be an easier way to start as a beginner. I feel that this is too much for me. I live in a condo and I don't have the space to keep all these ingredients. Thank you Susie
