One of the most important parts of a tarot reading is asking the proper question. Often, the question the client asks is vague or misleading. In this podcast, Mandy and I discuss techniques to formulate the best question to get the the most information you can from your tarot spread. By the end of this episode, you should be able to get much more valuable answers for you client that will actually help them!

Wow! Today we touched on a great many topics, some that were really advanced, so listen carefully and take notes!
We started out with an audience requested question. Remember, if you have any questions about reading the Tarot and would like to hear a podcast about it, we'd love to help you out! Today's question was what are the pros and cons between an e-mail and a live reading? Which are best? Who does what and why? We covered all of this as well as exceptions to the rule.
We also shared some stories about magical moments that happened during readings. We talked about Mandy's first dowsing experience. (Dowsing is finding a lost object with the Tarot cards). Sharon shared a story about a reading she did for Mandy, and I shared some stories about my own wonderful moments.
The podcast took on a life of it's own so during these two topics, much more was also discussed. We hope you enjoy listening and that you walk away with valuable information.

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 decided to share an actual group recording with you! This podcast will show you why studying with others is so very important.
We worked with just the Ace through ten of the coins (pentacles) and wands suits. The new exercises were great fun so take note of them!
This podcast will explain better than anything, the importance of being able to see the cards in different ways through the eyes of your peers. Also, it's just plain fun!
