Many Tarot readers believe they should not read for themselves. In today's podcast, I discover that neither Mandy or Sharon are comfortable with doing self Tarot readings. We discussed what their blocks are and how to overcome them. We went deep into the whys and hows and even discussed when it would be better to get outside help.
The ability to read for yourself is invaluable. The difficulty is getting to the point of self-discipline to remove our personal biases and desires for the outcome. In order to do that, I give several tips and techniques throughout the show as well as exercises that will help. It was fun to hear Mandy and Sharon come through their barriers and get excited about reading for themselves!
We hope you enjoy and benefit from the show! Thanks for being here
Yes/no questions are tricky beasts. Many clients will ask "will (insert event here) happen?". We have to be really careful with this, because a simple yes or no answer can not only rob your client of any responsibility of the situation, but also of opportunity. In addition to that, most of the time, after the simple answer you are going to get "how?" or "why?" or "ask again". We are not Magic 8 Balls, we are Tarot readers.
Mandy, Sharon and I sat down today and discussed how not to get caught up in this trap. We talked about when simple yes - no questions are actually appropriate, and when they aren't (which is most of the time). In the cases when they aren't appropriate, we discussed how to get better questions, what types of spreads will not only answer the question but also give pertinent information to help the client acheive their goals.
Sharon and Mandy shared some brutal experiences that arose (before they were properly trained) from telling clients only "yes" or "no". We are here to help you learn from our mistakes and our experiences. Thank you for being here!
Today we took a trip back in time to when Mandy started doing the tarot for complete strangers. She felt that she had to prove herself to be a psychic by not asking any questions or giving any information. We talk about how that is so unfair to yourself and to your client. If you go to the doctor, you don't just say, "you're the doctor, figure out what is wrong with me!" You let the doctor know what is going on so that he has a starting point to diagnos your symptoms. Today's podcast is about how to talk to your client, how important communication is, and how to overcome the psychological hurdle of having to appear "psychic". Many clients have specific questions. Even if you can tell them all sorts of information that can blow their mind, the most important thing to do is to answer that specific question. There is no such thing as a mind reader!
The cards are generic images. Without giving them structure with questions, they will give generic answers. Without communication, your reading will be mediocre at best.
Divianation does not replace common sense. It gives information for you to use with your knowledge to help events go smoothly. Just like any other profession, we have to understand the client's needs. Don't be pressured into the dog and pony show of believing you need to be a mind reader. And don't be afraid of looking "stupid" by asking your clients questions! You'll have a much more comprhensive tarot reading.
Join Mandy, Sharon, and I to learn how to overcome this enormous hurdle that stunts the growth of so many tarot readers!

Today we yapped about the value of critical thinking in Tarot spreads. It helps to look at spreads like a recipe, since everyone understands the nature of a recipe, and why a recipe makes food taste better. The same holds true with your readings. No formula is required (or ever helps). But knowing what you are doing makes okay readings good, and good readings great. We went in depth on the CC of course, and got sidetracked as usual with lots of advice from the pros who are actually making money doing this. All of this is to help you become great; it all works, and we have proof. The tarot does NOT tell us what to do, it gives us an extra edge to help us know the best choice—and when we can help our clients approach the tarot like this we can get them MUCH better results. That's when they come back more (and pay more All in all, it's just another free tarot lesson and a rant about going to school. Hope you take notes
Today Mandy I talked about when and how to refuse to do a reading. You, as a reader have the right to say "No". Knowing those rights and knowing your own personal boundaries is essential for your peace of mind and your reputation! We discussed how to find your personal boundaries, the way to go about saying no, and tips you can use before you ever start the reading so you know if you are able to help your client with a clear conscience. This episode is a must for any tarot reader.

Fun, casual discussion today. We covered the ace, 2, 3, 4, and 5 of Cups. Mandy is off somewhere in England, doing something fun, so Sharon and I spent an hour looking at these cards, and along the way shared a few insights learned from DECADES of reading professionally. We make learning the tarot easy. Listen and take notes, or play along with your tarot cards and see if you can come across new meanings that we may have missed.
All you have are 78 cards to determine the answer to ANY and EVERY question someone throws at you, so the most important thing you can do before a reading is develop a dialog with every one of your cards. That's where we come in. Come join us (free) at www.easytarotlessons.com We are here to help.
