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.
Thanks for being here!
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.
Today we look at the six, seven, eight, nine, and ten of the suit of Coins (or "Pentacles"). One of the worst things you can do in a reading is to force meanings into your tarot cards by using formula or memorized meanings. This comes from not knowing instinctively when cards come up in a spread. We are here to help you fix that. In today's free audio lesson we take a close look at each of the cards (6–10 of Coins) as they can appear in real-life readings for clients.
There is no guesswork in the tarot; none is needed. Every card in every spread, once verified, adds to the whole of the picture you are painting. This is why it is essential that you know what your cards mean, inside and out. Let us help. In this series we cover every card and give you fresh ways to look at the cards—with new and different methods and techniques in each audio lesson. Over the whole of the series you will come away with a wealth of new knowledge that will make YOUR readings better than they ever have been. As always, we are here to help.
Today we covered what tarot cards mean. Ace of Swords, two of Swords, three of Swords, four of Swords, and five of Swords; they are all here and carefully examined. Why should you believe us? Dusty has been reading tarot cards since he was 11 (that was over 40 years ago), and a professional and a trainer of working professional tarot readers for well over two decades. Also, we don't give you a lot of fluff.
The purpose of this series of tarot card meanings audio lessons is to help you break through the obstacles of confusion and randomness of card meanings in a spread or a reading for your clients. Every tarot card has an exact meaning, specific to the reading you are giving "right now." As there are only 78 tarot cards in a deck, each card has to have several possible meanings, or a "tarot card meaning cloud," (like a "tag cloud") that relates back to the image in the scene, but not all of the possible meanings apply to every card in every spread. The process of developing your intuition through your use of the tarot cards allows you to know the "right meaning" for any and every tarot card that comes up in your spreads. This comes with education, and a lot of practice.
