Why we do this and how it works: Easy Tarot Lessons episode 24
February 16, 2013 02:22 PM PST
carol and I sat down and did a double episode since it has been so long. I have been swamped with details for the new deck. THANK YOU to everyone who donated and contributed to the new deck.
Today we talked about why we teach what we teach and how it helps you learn, and what you can do to master the tarot. At the beginning was a shameless plug for Carol's upcoming class--seriously: "Highly recommended." Study. Practice. Take your time and do this. It works. We know this. Our students know this. Yeah, we have a few (2-3 it seems) detractors, but we have hundreds of testimonials and thousands of happy students. All that matters in the end is that you become a great reader. Thanks for letting us help you master the tarot.FREE Tarot books!: Easy Tarot Lessons episode 23
January 06, 2013 03:31 PM PST
TWO special announcements in this episode!
First, we have FREE COPIES of the new tarot book: Advanced Tarot Secrets! Get yours today. Details are on the podcast--not to worry, this really is a free book, not a sales gimmick.
Secons, I am giving away free decks! I have been working on a complete reinvention of the tarot for the past 20 years and now it is almost ready. I am giving away a handful of printed-in-house, hand-signed, numbered, and personalized (with YOUR NAME on them) Ouroboros decks. These decks are valued at $1,000 each and less than 100 of them will ever be made. This is not a "limited edition" deck. This is far more rare than that. There will never be more than what is issued--less than 100 decks worldwide.
This is what the new deck will be based upon. The new deck (Ouroborous Deck) will be professionally printed and circulated throught the world. It will become the new standard of divination--but that will be what the public sees. These (less than) 100 decks are specifically for my, personal and private, students ONLY. I am teaching a course on astrology starting in a few weeks, for the ridiculous price of $4 an hour. $25 a week for 14 weeks gets you personal training from me, from absolute beginner to a solid understanding of astrology and what you can do with it to OWN YOUR DESTINY, control others (use your powers only for good), predict the fututre, and "see through anyone." (And a lot of other cool things you can do with astrology. But also you get the free deck ($1,000) and a few books I am writing on astrology, as they come out--all free.

Carol, Beth, and I sat down and talked over each other today
This is the how-to and why you need to get a study buddy, form a study group, or nag your teacher to help you find a study buddy. We left no stone uncovered. We tell you how to get one, where to get one, what to look for, how to be a great study buddy, how to make it fun (for you and the other person), and pretty much that is all we do for an hour. Long episode. LOTS of valuable information.
Thanks for listening.Bryan's Journey (part 1): Easy Tarot Lessons episode 21
September 17, 2012 06:45 PM PDT
Not the fool's journey--Bryan's journey! Bryan is a new student of mine and we sat down in a real-life lesson and ran over a few of the exercises from The Easiest Way to Learn the Tarot - Ever!! We had some fun and got goofy but you can see how easy it is to learn the tarot when you use the methods outlined in my book. I wanted to show you a real session, what it is likee to learn from me, and how you can do this. Please grab your cards and have some fun. If you come up with different meanings then we did, that is even better. That is how the tarot is supposed to work. Thanks for being here. -- DustyReal life students tell you what you need to know: Easy Tarot Lessons episode 20
September 07, 2012 04:33 PM PDT
Stacia, Carol, and Beth sat down with me and I grilled themon what they have learned and what YOU need to know about the tarot: what they liked about learning, what they hated, what was hard, and what they would go back and tell themselves if they could do it all over again.
This episode ran a bit longer than usual but iut is packed-solid with real-life advice from people who are doing it--and getting paid HUGE tips, and getting the most amazing compliments. Come join us and please--take notes.Becka update: Easy Tarot Lessons episode 18
August 27, 2012 12:22 PM PDT
Becka is one of my private students who has been on her own for a bit and we sat down and just yapped about what she has learned and how she is doing with the tarot. This is an exclusive look at a real student who started as a beginner a few months ago and has made amazing progress. Becka is proof that YOU CAN DO THIS!
Highly enjoyable, I honestly think you will get a lot from this episode, especially if you are new to the tarot. Thanks for listening.How to spot patterns in spreads: Easy Tarot Lessons episode 17
July 25, 2012 07:43 PM PDT
Stacia is back with me for a while. Well I rant and Stacia gets a word in every once in a while. Patterns in spreads enhance the level of information in a reading but do not overpower the individual card meanings. We examine the various ways you will find cards interacting in noticable patterns and what they mean. I do rant about the Kickstarter program at dustywhite.net because there are over 15,000 of you (and hundreds more every week, thank you!) and we are changing history and need your help. I have already given away tens of thousands of dollars of free expert tarot secrets and lessons from the professionals away. I will try to continue to do so. I need your help. I need you to pledge a few dollars at the Kickstaetr drive or better yet, invest in yourself. I will teach you all of ths stuff and so much mjore it will make your head explose--for 75 cents an hour. My normal rate is $40 an hour, and that is only because I am trying to be affordable for everyone. I am asking you to help us change history and I am paying you to do it. Yeah, I can ask. I hope some of you will do the right thing and give back, given how much free stuff I am constantly giving you. We will find out, no?Aleister Crowley & Pamela Coleman Smith!: Easy Tarot Lessons episode 16
July 10, 2012 03:13 PM PDT
Oh my god!
We had Robert M. Place on (again) and we dished up dirt on "Alesiter ("Ed") Crowley, his narcissism, his genius, and his flat-out lies (pretty much everywhere). We dug into the sordid past of Pamela Coleman-Smith and how she ended up with the Golden Dawn. All in fun mind you--we love our wayward heroes and heroines. LOTS of tidbits you won't find in any book, also an update on a special private retreat (secret tarot gathering), my usual ramblings, and more on how you can master the tarot for just 75 cents an hour (hint: go to http://dustywhite.net and help us pay for the art for the new deck!).
This episode ran waaaay long. Robert has a wealth of tarot information and I want to know if you want more of the secret history of the tarot, and more dirt on Ed (Al) Crowley, straight from the historian's mouth. Please comment--let me know what you liked and want more of. This is a special edition you absolutely MUST listen to before August 3rd. Thanks for being here -- you know that!
July 02, 2012 06:46 PM PDT
Carol and I sat down and talked about various tarot cards and interesting trivia and history that will enhance your abilities to read the tarot accurately. The new deck is out today so I mentioned that a few times. Please see it at http://www.DustyWhite.net
Now, this lesson: we covered hidden influences, subtleties, "major" and "minor" Arcana cards; also glaring mistakes in the tarot that even Stuart Kaplan has missed, and how any why the Rider Waite deck is the most effective deck for detailed, accurate readings ever designed--even though other decks are fare more interesting to look at. Please comment and send me your thoughts. I will be more than happy to help you learn in any way I can.
Again, please visit us at DustyWhite.net I will be giving away $500 worth of free exclusive astrology lessons these next two months to anyone who wants them.Deck art changes card meanings: Easy Tarot Lessons episode Episode 14
May 10, 2012 03:02 PM PDT
Hey gang. No guest or side-kick today. I sat down by myself and talked for just over half an hour about how the art of YOUR deck changes the meaning of the cards you are reading. A bit about tarot fundamentalism, which is a real problem and one that needs to be eradicated once and for all. The tarot is cool enough to stand on its own without needless dogma and regimentation that only ends up limiting your ability to give masterful readings.
So 37 minutes of yapping about art with real life examples from various decks and how the tiny changes in art affect the balance of the deck and its ability to give you answers--it may not be you--it may be a poorly designed deck! Pretty decks do not necessarily make for better "working" decks. Thanks for being here. I hope to see you again soon. As always, let me know if you have ANY problems reading the tarot: email@example.comBiggest mistake tarot readers make: Easy Tarot Lessons episode Episode 13
April 25, 2012 12:14 AM PDT
I just sat down and went over some pages of notes. This is something that has been bothering me for some time. I see (alleged) tarot readers go online and ask strangers what THEIR readings mean. This is abysmal. It makes all of us look like amateurs. The cards speak to YOU--not to some random stranger, but between the bad tarot books and people to cheap to hire a teacher or too lazy to actually study the tarot (yeah yeah I know: no one has time anymore, we live in an instant gratification world--don't be so old-fashioned) this has to end. Now.
I hate being a curmudgeon, but being able to actually foretell the future is a skill, not a parlor trick. It is the lazy and the stingy (too cheap to buy a book or hire a teacher) who make us all look like superstitious idiots. Pardon the rant--this episode is about how to avoid making yourself look dumb. It is a lesson that needed to be taught.How to have confidence in readings: Easy Tarot Lessons episode 12
April 23, 2012 06:55 PM PDT
Stacia and I sit down and answer the age-old question, "How can I be more confident when I am giving a reading to a stranger." This is a very relaxed conversation where we cover the mistakes too many readers make and the various antidotes. It is short and to the point but it really works. Please have a listen. If you have any questions just email me. Thanks for being here.How to read tarot cards for yourself: Easy Tarot Lessons episode 11
April 10, 2012 03:35 AM PDT
Julie in Australia asked about reading the tarot for yourself, so I sat down with Diana, one of my mentees and we talked about it. This is a casual lesson. LOTS of info, but nothing to buy--no sales pitches, no infomercials. We cover some very important fundamentals you need to master before you can accurately predict your own future. Asking questions about yourself has the problem of coloring the impressions you get. This can distort the meaning of the reading and provide you with useless information.
April 05, 2012 02:10 PM PDT
HERE is the visual lesson that will help you get the most from this episode:
http://easytarotlessons.com/card_blends.html (lotsa pix!)
This is really loose form today. It has been too long since I did an episode so I sat down with Carol, one of the students of my new deck and we just had a chat about blending cards: how to, what to do before you try blending cards in a reading so that you CAN blend cards. It gives you a LOT of information but you may have to listen to it a few times. By the time you get through this though you will be able to give MUCH better readings than most people you meet--just by mastering this one episode.
