Professional Membership is open to TGA Interest Members with at least three months’ membership. If you have not yet joined the TGA, please apply first to become an Interest Member.

You don’t have to be located in Australia – the TGA has many international members who benefit from being part of a cohesive Tarot association.

In summary, the Guild believes professional Tarot readers should be able to:

  • Demonstrate a sound understanding of the meanings usually ascribed to each of the 78 cards in the Tarot deck
  • Make meaningful connections between cards to build an interpretation based on the symbols and images in the Tarot cards
  • Use one or more Tarot spreads to interpret cards in a way that makes sense to the client
  • Communicate with clients in a way that produces a positive experience for clients and for themselves as readers
  • Respect their clients’ values and right to self-determination
  • Abide by the Tarot Guild of Australia’s Code of Ethics in their professional practice


All potential members must read through the Tarot Guild of Australia Code of Ethics & Practice documentation prior to applying for membership. You will be required to adhere to the code as part of the application process.
