Mandy related her step-by-step experience transforming a client’s ongoing project with a manifestation spread and demonstrated for everyone the flexibility of the tarot. The tarot is more than a divination tool and, thanks to her training, Mandy put it to great use! Her client couldn’t have been happier. The key to her success and yours is proper training and PRACTICE! But the big news in this episode is a MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT. Dusty has thrown open the doors to the Mystery School! The lessons are being recorded, but they are not available for listening. You have to be in class to get in on these valuable (and for now free) lessons! Without further preamble, Dusty gave a Mystery School lesson using Think and Grow Rich (1937) by Napoleon Hill as a discussion point.
The first lesson: There is no such thing as something for nothing, which is different than something from nothing. Manifestation, at its basic level, is about bringing something from the intangible to the tangible. What is intangible or ethereal? Think of thought. Thought does not exist in the real world. You cannot prove a thought exists until the thought is spoken. The act of writing something down is the process of turning nothing into something.
Metaphysics must follow the laws of physics. If you are going to do magic that works, you have to examine your beliefs and your practices and evaluate whether they match up with the laws of physics. Tarot cards a part of this as building blocks. Mandy took the ideas in her client’s mind and transformed them into a tangible, physical blueprint through the process of allegorical representation. This is also the process for sympathetic magic. We use physical objects all the time that take intangible ideas and imbue them with power and make a thing real (e.g. paper money, checks, credit cards, McDonalds signs).
What is the process to transform nothing into something? Mandy outlined it above. Know what you want. Clarify your thought. Know why you want it. Find things associated with it. Put the idea down into some tangible form. All of this will be covered in the live, future sessions for those who show up for class, but be warned: THERE ARE NO SHORTCUTS WITH THIS!
Sharon is back (from Hurricane Irma)! After a bit of catching up chit-chat, we took a deep look at the 6 and 7 of swords, and the various ways they can come up in a reading. This is a fresh take on tarot card meanings—not your typical "here's what you have to memorize" garbage presented in too many books and websites. We continued on with the 8, 9, and 10 of swords, comparing them against each other and along the way revealing some great information every reader should know. If you have any tarot questions just ask us! Write to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will answer your tarot questions on the air.
We had so much fun with this new game! It's a variation of cards in position on the roundabout spread. We rolled a 12 sided die or 2 6 sided dice to determine the card position then pulled a random card. After that, we either used the astrological position or the actual card position meaning to determine the meaning of the card. It sounds complicated, but it's really very easy if you've been doing your homework! Mandy, Sharon and I played it together to get you started and see how it's done.
Then we played some "Who Am I" from the Black Book (Advanced Tarot Secrets). If you've been listening to the podcasts or taking the course, you should be familiar with this game. If not, this is a fun filled introduction!
This edition is full of information and of course, laughter. Come join us and have some fun learning!

Mandy is back! She was on holiday in Greece when a 6.7 earthquake struck. we talked about earthquakes and Mandy’s dialogue with the cards. This is a long lesson!
Mandy also recounted her encounter with a believer in a flat earth. We discussed and analyzed the theory and its impact on Mandy’s way of thinking.
I went over the suit of Coins. Unlike the suit of Wands, there is no synchronistic story with the Coins. The numerological analysis between the two suits also breaks down when examined closely.
We also examined the Coins from Aces to Fives looking for new ways to view these cards. Life experiences provide differing viewpoints for each card, which is why there is benefit in working with others while examining the cards. I point out that you should never force anything when interpreting the cards. Just walk into the cards and experience them from the inside. For a card to have a meaning, it needs context. At this stage, I am just exploring what a card could mean. You need to be open and unbiased to be a good reader because you need level, depth, and specificity, which you can’t have if you cling to rigid meanings and formulae.
Ace of Coins: emblematic of youth, focus on the here and now (earth mentality), large raise (or a balloon payment if reversed), pollyannic point of view, this thing has value, the world is round!
Two of Coins: choices, playing around with his options, on a stage, dancing too close to the edge, not completely genuine.
Three of Coins: Practical card, what people do on a daily basis, amicable, coming together, friendship kind of card, colleagues, work in progress, meeting of 3 different faiths, coalition of minds coming together in harmonious discourse, verification, a check up, get other people involved in your project, brainstorming.
Four of Coins: in a conservative state, collector, museum curator, conservationist, protective, feeling under threat, protect what is important to me, holding on to what he can for as long as possible, turning his back on the rest of the world, merchant king, trying to convince you of his importance, someone who doesn’t question things outside of his reality sphere.
Five of Coins: victim mentality, woe is me, not accepting a helping hand, shadows.
And that is about it for this episode. hit me up with ANY questions.
As always, THANK YOU for being here
So . . . lots of stuff today. Mandy and I sat down and talked for a few minutes about her evolution as a tarot reader (real life proof over the past several months—and how you can do this too). Then we got into the suit of Wands (cards 6 through 10) but we looked at what these cards COULD mean in a philosophical sense.
There is no one book of card meanings, and if there were it would have to be thousands of pages thick, as there is simply no way to assign fixed set meanings you can memorize and apply to all of life (78 cards divided by millions of possibilities equals no possible way of creating a bunch of card meanings you could rely on). So we did something much better: show you how to feel the cards and know what each one is saying to you in the reading you are doing right now. The long version of how to do this is in the course at www.easytarotlessons.com.
We also revealed some of the methods of the top tarot professional readers in the world, and how you can easily do these same things at home (or work or at . . .) and build your skills to a degree that far surpasses the average reader you will meet.
So . . . how to build a large client base (explained by someone who is doing it RIGHT NOW) and some tips on how to read like a pro (what you should be doing right now) and finally how to develop a relationship with the suit of wands cards in your tarot deck. If you have any questions please post a comment and I will help you as quickly as I can.

Listen to this episode to learn what your tarot cards mean.
Mandy and I are doing a new series of tarot card interpretations without formula, memorization, or bad storytelling. Originally we were going to try to get through the entire suit of Wands but it turns out that we can only get though five cards at a time while showing you professional techniques of card interpretation.
So it looks like this series will go on for a while. In this episode we looked at the Ace, two, three, four, and five of Wands in ways that you won't find in any tarot book. Yes, we show you the card meanings, but we don't trap you into seeing card interpretations a s set in stone. Along the way we talked just a little about history as well, just to put everything into context.
Your tarot cards are easy to understand if you spend some quality time absorbing what is going on inside each image on each card, and then applying these activities and attitudes to real-world events and attitudes. This is easy and makes your readings far more accurate, fun, and highly detailed. If you have any questions at all please post a comment and we will make sure that we answer your question. Thanks for being here.
Yesterday Mandy was paid to use her tarot skills in a "team building event" by a wellness center in her area. The full details are included in the audio lesson but the gist of it is that Mandy was hire to use the tarot to entertain and motivate employees to work together more efficiently.
Mandy describes how she was originally going to take the (traditional) easy route and just give everyone there readings, but as she did her research she had an epiphany to make the whole experience interactive. Using her cards as a catalyst for interaction she taught the employees of her client the very basics of the tarot and shepherded them through some easy exercises and games. When she went off to give each participant a hands-on reading she left the others with cards and something to do.
The idea was not to teach the employees of the wellness center "how to read tarot cards," but instead to help them realize how much more is inside them and how to tap into their innate intuitive abilities to better work together and be able to assist their clients more thoroughly. The event was a HUGE hit and everyone went home happy (and Mandy had her first corporate gig under her belt).
This lesson is an examination of what she did there and how she got the gig in the first place. You can follow along and see the exact steps that led directly to her being offered the job. This is where you want to be in your career's evolution. At some point you need to explore the horizons far beyond the shelter of the psychic hotlines or reading only for friends and family—or at psychic fairs.
There is BIG MONEy to be made using your cards for corporate and charity events , and the attendees there are usually mid- to high-networth individuals who can (and often do) become your private clients. This is a short lesson but one filled with real-world, real-life examples that is valuable both now ("the day after") and well into the future. In this lesson, if you pay close attention, you will find out EXACTLY how to do this for yourself; what steps to take in what order, and how to maximize your results. If you have any trouble doing this join our family and let us help you. Thanks for being here
Mandy’s stall update! Last week we explored Mandy’s giant step from reading on the psychic phone lines to opening up her own retail location. After doing due diligence and solid business research Mandy chose to set up shop one day a week (to start) at a busy marketplace. This lowered her star-up expenses and recurring overhead while putting her front and center in front thousands of real potential clients every week. It also let her keep her day job.
Only you can decide which path is best for you. Some students love reading from home over Skype, phone, or through a service. For others swap meets, boardwalks, farmers markets or psychic fairs offer better results. Our goal here is to help you understand your options, and in our course at easytarotlessons.com we teach you how to do all of this and more (just show up and ask questions).
If you ever want to read tarot for the public, you need to listen to this episode. Mandy shares her secrets for creating the right atmosphere for attracting clients, while Dusty injects his real-world experiences with running a retail business. Reading the tarot is a fun job, but it is still a job. From doing the research for the best location to perfecting your presentation, we go through many of the details you should know before opening up your retail shop. If you need to know more, sign up for the course—this public service is free information for the public to help raise the quality level of readings clients get all over the world.
After exploring the retail side of tarot we look at Mandy’s questions on what to do when a card doesn’t I walk Mandy through the process of going through the various passes you go through in each reading (find out all of this and more in Advanced Tarot Secrets). As always, we are happy to answer your questions. We are here to help you make sense of the tarot, build your skills and confidence and if you like: go pro.

If you EVER want to make money reading for clients (face to face) you need to listen to this (**free**) lesson on how to make it work for you.
Mandy and I sat down and revealed what we have been working on for the past few months. Mandy is one of my hand-taught students and I personally supervise her instruction and progress (she is in the UK and I am in California). First we built her success and popularity on the psychic phone lines and then she felt the need to expand into in-person readings to build up a regular clientele. After researching options and finding what was best suited to her knowledge, current income (resources), desires, and work style she came up with the idea to read in public at a market.
In this lesson we discuss everything she did to make this a reality and how amazingly well it has turned out (she was in the black at the end of her first day!). Nothing is hidden. Nothing is held back. We examined what she did and how she did it and WHY she did it, so that we can apply it to you and your circumstances. This will be required listening at the tarot academy (at www.easytarotlessons.com) so you really want to get this information while it is still free.
This is real-life in real-time. There is no trickery or hyperbole here. YOU CAN DO THIS if you apply yourself. We are here to help you and if you have any questions just ask. Thanks for being here
Tarot card meanings are not a mystery, they just haven't been taught properly. This is why so many people struggle with what a card means in a tarot reading. That all ends here. Today's goofy lesson is all about how to know what your cards mean when they come up in practice or an actual spread you are casting for a paying client.
To actually understand what your cards are saying to you requires a familiarity with your tarot cards. Each card in your deck has an image on it and inside that image is a message: a visual representation of someone doing something. There is no mystery to it at all. The point of reading tarot cards is to help divine information otherwise inaccessible, and that means that you have to know your tool inside and out, just like a mechanic knows his tools, a surgeon knows her tools, or a psychologist knows the working of the brain. So, we all have to learn, practice, and study. but it doesn't have to be boring, which is why we have DOZENS of tarot games and exercises to help you get to know your cards intimately.
Today's free lesson is extremely helpful in getting to know the tarot cards in your hand, so that when you are out in the real-world giving readings you can extract much more information than most readers you will ever meet. As always, ask me questions if you have any: email@example.com. I am here to help you.
