Mandy, Sally and Sharon got into a conversation about their strangest Tarot questions. Sometimes a client will ask about something you have no knowledge of, or they will ask you a question that makes it difficult to keep a straight face. You have to be prepared to trust your knowledge of the Tarot and to trust you intuition if you choose to answer these. From the mundane "what should I buy my mother for her birthday" to the bizarre, the Tarot can answer any question your clients bring to you!

Mandy set a challenge at the end of the podcast. Feel free to take that challenge and leave your comments below!

I'll be returning to the podcasts soon! My muse is super active lately, so I've been working diligently to get "The Easiest Way to Learn Astrology Ever!" out to you. Be on the lookout for it!

Thanks for being here :-)

Mandy, Sally and Sharon got together to share their thoughts on the Four of Wands from the Waite-Smith Tarot deck. Although they do touch on some of the traditional meanings that you may find in books, they spent more time on the ways to interpret the card through the image. By getting to know the images on your cards and how they appeal to your senses, you are taking the first step toward flowing, intuitive Tarot readings that are never stilted or forced.

Throughout the next few months, you may see more sneak peeks of discussions of each card in the Tarot deck. We are in the process of making and posting all of the video for each card at easytarotlessons.com. So don't worry if you don't see them all here! They'll all be posted for free at the site.

Please feel free to post your comments below of what the Four of Wands says to you!

Sally and Sharon got together to discuss some of the meanings the Ace of Wand from the Tarot could lead to. Note the word "could" here! Their discussion is purely to help you see some of the possible meanings that could be invoked by the image on the card. They do a version of exercises 1 and 1(a) from the white book "The Easiest Way to Learn the Tarot Ever!". These exercises are essential to help you keep from being trapped by "keywords" or traditional meanings. It is imperative to be able to understand each card in a way that will apply to the day to day existence of both you and your clients.

Sharon and Will sat down for a deep discussion of how Will discovered the Tarot. They talked about what he thought it was before he started learning and how he evolved as a Tarot reader.

One of the most important things to do while learning the Tarot is finding a teacher or school that resonates with you. By resonates, I mean something that speaks to you in a way you understand and Identify with. Will tells us all about how difficult it was to find teachings that weren't clouded with vague mystery. Even with the internet and all the information available to us today, it is still hard to find proper training! Join us to find out how he found the best school for him.

Whether you are already in the academy or still searching for a way to learn the Tarot, this podcast is filled with insight and information. Thank you Will, for sharing so much with us! And remember, no one has to do this alone.

I've been getting a great many requests to do some podcasts on card meanings. As many of you know, I'm not an advocate of keywords or superstitions so please don't expect that. Instead, you can expect insight and observations to what the cards can mean in every day life.

Mandy, Sharon and I got together today to discuss the Empress. We talked about the general feel the card generated for us and gave examples of what she could mean and why. The value here is learning how to interpret for yourself and your client instead of giving vague, rote, or generic tarot readings.

This is the first of 78 podcasts on the meanings of cards. We hope you enjoy it and join us for the whole series. Please feel free to share your observations with us in the comments. We'd love to hear from you.

I find it frustrating how so many Tarot readers feel they have to hide their talent because of the misrepresentation of what we do that is so prevalent in today's media. The fear of animosity and ridicule can be overwhelming.

Today, Skwirl sat down with Robin as she shared her journey of how she overcame the fear and "came out of the tarot closet". They discussed her reservations, how she battled the insecurity, and how she found the courage to show the world who she is. They also talked about some reasons why many readers can't feel comfortable letting others know what they do, and how they can find a sense of strength and empowerment.

No matter what your "closet" status, remember that you are not alone.

Please feel free to let us know how you came out of the tarot closet or what holds you from it in the comments below! We are here to help.

Wow! We had quite a session today!

We started out with a dilemma Mandy had to face for being such a popular Tarot reader!

Then Mandy, Sharon and I discussed the relationships between the Magician, the High Priestess and The World. We got into a very deep discussion about what each can represent and how they differ from each other. Be sure to take notes! There are no keywords or shortcuts here. This information is powerful and will expand your understanding of these cards in ways you could not begin to imagine!

Thank you so much for spending precious time with us. Please be sure to leave some feedback and don't hesitate to follow the podcasts! You don't want to miss what we have in store! :-)

House of White presents the first Pod Cast hosted by the well known Sharon Lewis (a.k.a. Skwirl). Sharon’s new podcasts will touch on issues related to Tarot in some way. She will also have special guests join her to add their unique view points to the discussion.

Tonight, Sharon will be discussing an issue that Nina Soul, co-owner of Spiritual Vibes & the Soul Sisters Inc., recently dealt with (Oct 2018) - A City Inspector was called to investigate her shop. Upon seeing a small Tarot readings sign, he proceeded to give her a ticket for not having a Fortune-Telling License.

Sharon and her guest, Sylver, will be discussing local laws, social misconceptions, the pros & cons of licensing and the requirements that some states in America have set.

Together, they discuss ways to remove the blight that con-artists have stained the Tarot community with, and what we can do to protect ourselves.

Thanks for being here :-)

So often, when the Tower comes up in a spread, the reaction is fear. With the way it is presented in today's media, this is perfectly valid, but the Tower is so much more than complete devastation.

Today, Sharon and I discussed when and how the Tower could be a "good" card to get in a spread. We talked about many things it could represent, and why Tower "energy" is so important to life. This is a big step to ridding yourself of keywords and superstition surrounding the Tarot.

What do you do when you turn over the card and the answer is so obvious you feel like it can't possibly be right? What do you do when this happens? Of course the answer seems obvious! Join Mandy, Sharon and I as we discuss intuition, yappy dogs and divine inspiration.

One other big topic we covered was how Pages and Aces are often confused as having the same interpretations. Many Tarot books indicate that both are new beginnings. We talked about the differences between the two and ways that you can know exactly what they mean when they come up in a tarot reading.

Please leave a comment below on whether you enjoyed the podcast or if there is a topic you'd like to hear covered in future Tarot podcasts. Thanks for being here! :-)

In this podcast, Mandy, Sally, and Dusty discuss what happens when your reading takes an unexpected turn.

Mandy recounts a recent reading she had. The client arrived stating she wanted to hear "anything". In hindsight, Mandy believes she should have managed her client's expectations at the outset, but she was already committed to the reading. Mandy endeavored to do the best she could with a client that did not want to be an active participant in the reading. Mandy cast an overview spread and read that spread only to be told by the client that she wanted to know about something entirely different. In an effort to provide the client what she wanted, Mandy focused on this new question and gave what she thought was an excellent reading. Afterward, the client revealed that a friend told her she should not disclose any information to Mandy. Further, the client expressed disappoinment with the reading. From Mandy's perspective, she felt like she was being tested as if she were a mindreader, which she is not. Mandy, seeing the client's disappointment, returned the fee and offered to do another reading at a later date. The client accepted the offer, scheduled a new appointment, and left. Unfortunately, the client did not return for the rescheduled appointment.

Mandy felt like she mishandled the matter and Dusty discussed his thoughts. Everyone agreed that managing your client's expectations early is the key to a successful consultation and offered strategies for accomplishing that. Client's often do not know what goes on during a reading, only knowing what they see on television or in the movies. It is best to explain the process to them up front and tell them what you can and cannot do as a tarot reader. Let the client know that the reading provides more actionable information when there is dialogue between the reader and the client. This isn't about fishing for information like a mentalist. It is about getting sufficient background information so you can understand what your client wants to know. If either client or reader are uncomfortable with the reading, it is okay to walk away from it.

In the end, Mandy did the right thing in dealing with a difficult client. We hope you enjoy this peek into what it is like to read for real people in the real world. If you liked this episode, or if you would like to suggest a topic for future podcasts, let us know in the comments.

Today's podcast is geared toward beginners, but it is a good idea for experienced readers to listen in as well. Mandy and I covered some do's and don'ts of what a tarot reader should be doing and why.

We covered some basics like the importance of proper shuffling, focusing on the client, and other practices that are often overlooked by beginners. Whether you are just starting out or getting a refresher, it is super important to remember the basics!

One of the big questions we have gotten lately, is how can you tell the difference between imagination and intuition while we are reading Tarot cards? Mandy and Sharon discussed this today in depth. They talked about how to tell the difference between the two, how to build your intuition, and how to strengthen your confidence.

This podcast is full of examples, great advice, and guidance. If you are struggling with knowing whether you are actually interpreting the divine or just "making stuff up", be sure to listen to this episode!

There is a great deal of "hocus-pocus" surrounding the Tarot cards. We are here to help you determine what actually works.
Today we discussed some of the Tarot rituals that are taught in books and on the internet.

We covered questions like "do you need to cleanse your Tarot cards every time you cast a spread?" "How do you cleanse your tarot cards?" "How many times are you supposed to shuffle to cast a spread?" "What is the best ritual to do before casting a spread?"

There is no need to do lengthy rituals every single time you cast a spread! Especially when you have a long line of clients waiting for a reading. We explain exactly what is necessary to open that valve of intuition and to keep it open while you are doing a Tarot reading without bogging everything down with superstition.

We hope you enjoy today's podcast! Feel free to leave comments or ask about a question you would like to hear a podcast on!

We tackled some more of the popular questions asked on the internet about the Tarot. The questions we covered today included why tarot decks? (Vs anything else), why the tarot is so popular", and why tarot works so well (“is true”).

We also covered some professional secrets on HOW to get the kind of amazing results everyone wants from a reading. Remember, there are no instant gratification ways of learning. You need to be willing to put the time and the work into your studies in order to get the results!

In today's podcast, Sharon and I answer another question submitted by our listeners. They want to know about Tarot Why Questions. The Tarot is the Swiss army knife of divination. It can answer all types of questions without the mess of consulting entrails! For this episode, we will focus on Why Questions and we will teach you how to increase the quality of your readings RIGHT NOW.

The worst thing you can do when reading Tarot is fail to answer specific questions. By learning to answer a Why Question, you give your client relevant, actionable information, which is better than 90% of the people who read the Tarot. In order to ask a Why Question, here is what you need to do:

At all times, the most important thing is that you answer a question accurately. Start off by talking to your client. What are they really asking? Then you need to understand what their environment is. Remember! To answer a Why Question with authority, conviction, and accuracy, you need to do the following: Make mental notes (or actually write them down which is Brian's Exercise found in Advanced Tarot Secrets) then answer these questions: What am I asking about? What is actually going on here? Whose perspective am I looking from? What specifically do I want to know? While you are shaping this muti-faceted question in your mind, form a ball of energy and expand it. Either let that energy encompass you or let it travel out of your brain, through your arms, and into your hands. Let that energy flow into your cards as you shuffle. Continue shuffling until you get your "ding" that the cards are in the right place. While you are doing this, you make a compact with the Divine that you are going to use a certain spread. Don't break that compact by choosing a different spread after you get your ding! If you decide to change spreads, shuffle again.

By studying Tarot, you learn how to access the Divine. Remember, the magic is in you and not the cards. If you practice these techniques, you will get results; but you have to do the work! We cannot do the work for you. What you get out of your studies is directly related to what you put into them and practicing with your cards is key. If you are listening to this podcast, check out our website at easytarotlessons.com. While our special lasts, you can start studying for as little as $1. Learn for yourself how to access the Divine, give readings that are better than 90% of other readers out there, and really empower your clients!

We hope you enjoy this episode! Thanks for being here!

In today's podcast, Mandy, Sharon and I tackle questions submitted by our listeners. They want to know things like, why should they learn the tarot? Why use tarot cards? Why are tarot cards accurate? And why do tarot cards work?

In our experience, people learn the tarot for many reasons. The tarot helps us explore and understand the world around us. The tarot enables us to answers questions that we could not answer otherwise. With the tarot, we develop our intuition and connect with the Divine! In the end, we learn the tarot because it works.

So why use tarot cards and not some other tool? There are few tools like the tarot that can deliver so much information from such a compact source. The imagery of the tarot cards sparks our intuition. One single picture can contain a multitude of words in a way that something like a pendulum cannot. The cards become the vocabulary through which the Divine can communicate with us.

People consult the tarot, and some pay a lot of money to do so, because it works. So why are tarot cards so accurate? The tarot cards are accurate because trained tarot readers have honed their intuitions and developed a dialogue with their cards to the point they are clear channels to the Divine. There is no magic in the cards. The magic is in the reader. The tarot is accurate because it provides an avenue for intuition to manifest Divine knowledge into words.

We hope you enjoy this episode! Thanks for being here!

What gives you confidence in reading the Tarot?

Reading the tarot takes confidence: You need to open your mouth and trust the words that come out. This is scary to most people—and it should be. We are not making things up as we go, and we are NOT paid four our opinion.

Most people who have had a tarot reading have encountered the "reader" who *broadcasts* information at them: The "reader" states what is going on in their lives as if it is a set fact, even when it makes no sense to the client (person getting the reading). This kind of arrogance is not tarot reading. It is a scam, and fraudulent.

We are not talking about that.

Today we teach you how to have GENUINE confidence when reading your cards—how to develop a trust bond with your intuition, and what it takes to feel comfortable in any situation when reading cards for anyone.

It really is not that hard. In fact, most of what you need to do is to simply get out of your own way (silence the yappy dog). Today we show you how in just over 30 minutes. (We also share some embarrassing stories.)

Thanks for being here. Hey—subscribe to get all of our secrets (100% free, but you do have to subscribe to get them), and leave us a review, or post a comment. If YOU have a question on how to do something with your cards—hit us up!

When you are getting ready to work a psychic faire, or read at a tarot convention, a party, a swap meet, or a giant festival, you need to know what could break, go wrong, or cause an otherwise wonderful event to go very badly. This is just as important as knowing what to do to make everything “just right.”

 

Today, we found out some very bad news. Mandy is doing a HUGE festival in three days. 35,000 people will be there, and she will be the reader at that event. Talk about LOTS of new clients! But the person who volunteered to help her bailed!

 

Oh no! How many ways can we find (in 30 minutes) to fix this mess? We came up with several, and examined the pros and cons of each, and gave a lot more advice on the 3 things you must know in order to make your event great! This is a *must listen* (and take notes) lesson for anyone who is going to read at public events.

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 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.
