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 :-)


p.s. If you have any questions about your local laws, be sure to look them up at your court house or on the web!

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!

Don't hesitate to leave feedback in the comments section! You can also ask us to do a future podcast on a tarot topic that has you stumped. Thanks for being here :-)

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!

Thanks for being here :-)
