Today's episode was so much fun! Mandy had a great funny story about a client that had us in stitches. Then Sharon told us an observation that a client made about the Ace of Cups from The Modern Spellcaster's Tarot Deck. We all chimed in with awkward or funny moments from our Tarot past to entertain Iris and prepare her and you for what's in store.

Not only did we laugh a lot, but we talked about a great many subjects. Things like what to do when a client tries to "test" your psychic ability or when you have a client you can't seem to read for—and how to fix the problem so they walk out with an AMAZING reading.

Also included is an extremely powerful technique for providing exceptional extra value to your readings.

We wrapped it up with a game, and some advice from the girls about how to make your tarot learning experience a positive and gainful adventure.

So we started out today talking about tarot books. Sharon wanted to bring up something important but of course we got sidetracked . . .

AND INVENTED A NEW GAME! :-)

Or an exercise. It has a kind of lame name: "Interview." We really need to work on that name, but it is an exercise that feels like a game and it is *awesome*!! We hope you will agree.

Rather than explain how it works here, just download this and listen along. Apologies in advance to ANYONE who might be offended, as we never pick on anyone (but ourselves). That said, we don't pull punches around here, or give you the usual New Age fluff you will get from other tarot "experts." Life is *hard*! If it wasn't everyone would be rich and happy, and NO ONE would ever need a tarot reading. So we have to teach you how to read in the REAL WORLD, no some fantasy New Agey magical land of unicorns and rainbows.

So . . . have a listen and try this game/exercise for yourself. It will help you get past all of the guesswork in the tarot and STOP looking up meanings in the book. When you do that you chop off your intuition and you are reading like a computer (and computers are lousy fortune tellers). DON'T get trapped by the promise of memorization, or formula or keywords. DO THIS INSTEAD. This is a tiny sample of what we teach you how to do in the real tarot academy at www.easytarotlessons.com

And as always, if you have ANY QUESTIONS at all email me!

Whether you are just starting to learn the Tarot or have been reading the cards for years, this episode addresses a valid question. Which Tarot works the best?

I asked Iris and Sharon how they got their first decks, which decks they were, and how they interacted with them. This is a classic example in both cases of how the deck you use can enhance or inhibit your learning process.

We talked about how the art of different decks can impact your interpretations, whether for ill or good. The images of any deck have to speak to you on a deep level in order to connect intuitively to them. Iris and Sharon shared some of their favorite decks with me today. They also told why these are their favorites.

We can't tell you the exact deck that is best for you, but we can point you in the right direction. We tell you what too look for and point out that if you have a study buddy or a group, why it is important to be working with the same images.

As always, you can email me at me@dustywhite.net with any questions, and thank you for being here!

So many books! Which one is right? For that matter, why should anyone buy any tarot book?

In today's episode, Sharon and I reminisced about the books we started out with and the limitations we had. With the internet at your fingertips now, there are a lot more choices.

But how do you choose the book that is right for you?

We used this opportunity to give a clear understanding of what makes a good tarot book and how to pick the one that is best suited to your needs, whatever your reading style, whether you like or don't want to add the kabbalah or numerology (or anything else!) to your tarot readings. Reading cards is highly personal. It is a skill that takes time to develop and the wrong book can screw you up for years. The only thing that matters in the end is that you get RESULTS an ACCURACY and DETAIL for your clients. The rest is just window dressing.

We did discuss some of the tarot books that are available, but instead of force feeding you what books to buy, I prefer to encourage critical thought processes. I've made up a checklist that will pinpoint what you are looking to learn that will help you narrow down the choices and choose the best book for what YOU need.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me at me@dustywhite.net . And as always, thank you for being here! :-)

Oh god! The white noise on this audio is horrible! I just uploaded a replacement. I tried to fix this background noise. It is tough to listen to, but the information is good.

Sharon and I sat down today and had a great conversation on everything from Aces to Zippo lighters. Seriously! We had a relaxed atmosphere and coffee (yay!), so we talked about a great many topics.

We touched on how the cards don't give us answers for our clients to go through life without responsibility. Instead, they give us information that we can use to empower and formulate a plan with your client to take control of their situation.

We also answered some email questions for Sam. I do read my emails daily and have a great time helping anyone that has a question! Sam was asking about how to tell when Aces are amplifiers, or when they indicate beginnings or abundance.

Then we went on to talk about the best exercise to use in order to weave a story together instead of reading cards as individual stand-alones. Throughout the whole thing, we discussed the value of a good Zippo and Sharon's secret crush on Schneider from "One Day at a Time".

We ended with how to hear a private lesson on manifestation. This is a must hear and it is free to anyone who has signed up for the free email lessons!

Thank you for being here :-)
