How to Give Quick (5 to 15 minute) Tarot Readings
In this podcast, Dusty and Sally discuss how to give quick (5 to 15 minute) tarot readings. Typically, any decent tarot reading should take between half an hour and 90 minutes. But today, they focus on what you can do when time is limited. Most people just opt for a one, two, or three-card reading, which is poison. You might as well just stab your reputation in the face and call it a day. Three card readings are reserved for people you don’t like, don’t care to impress, or as add-ons to larger spreads. If you are exceptionally skilled, you can use them before you cast a larger spread, as a fact-finding expedition, or verify known information. But the rest of the time, you are just being lazy, so whenever you see people using three-card spreads, look at them as amateurs who have never been appropriately trained. With these tips, you can perform real wizardry in just a few minutes. If you liked this episode, or if you would like to suggest a topic for future podcasts, let us know. Thanks for being here!

How to Deliver Bad News During a Tarot Reading
In this podcast, Dusty and Sally discuss how to deliver bad news during a tarot reading. After verifying your spread, Dusty shares six more tips you can use right now to aid you in providing bad news to your clients. Remember, just because you don’t SAY something doesn’t mean it won’t happen. There is almost always some form of solution to whatever you may see. It may take resources, but your job is to find out how to get past, through, over, or avoid this obstacle, setback, or failure. And you can only help your client with this obstacle if you tell them about it. If you liked this episode, or if you would like to suggest a topic for future podcasts, let us know.

Aces are Easy! (Various things they can mean in a reading)
Iris was having a problem interpreting the Aces. She had a hard time getting past the static image of a large hand holding something smack in the middle of the card. She was also stuck on the traditional meaning of "New Beginnings". We discussed how to get past the giant hands and really take a good look at the background. We also looked at the elemental and astrological aspects each card contained. This podcast is a MUST for anyone! We demystified the Aces and made them user-friendly. Be sure to take copious notes! This lesson goes in depth to help understand the Aces in ways you would never have expected. Please let me know if you have any questions. I am here to help. Thanks for being here and learning :-)

How to ask better questions so you can get better answers
One of the biggest problems with tarot readings people get is that the clients are unsatisfied with the results they get. If they were as thrilled as we all like to think our clients are they would be coming back again and again. Repeat clients are the ONLY WAY to make a real living reading your cards and the only way to get REPEAT CLIENTS is to give them information so valuable, precise, and accurate that they come back and demand more.To get this level of detail and precision you must ask better questions. This presents the problem of knowing what makes up a great reading and what it takes to get there. Your clients have not been trained. Fortunately, you have been. Your clients have been programmed by bad movies and bad advice from non-tarot readers, and even bad readings by amateurs. They are not experts in knowing what to ask and how to get the most out of their readings. This is why we made this specific podcast. Spend an hour with us and think about the concepts here. This is not a note-taking lesson: this is one that requires you spend some serious time contemplating the nature of your job and your interaction with your clients. If you do this: if you take some time alone (often) and really dig deeply into your interaction with your clients you will master a skill so few readers ever do—and one essential to being a god among mortals. You will learn to hear what people are saying behind their words and how to get people to open up so that you can better help them find the answers they need to their dilemmas.

How and where to get TONS of clients (to practice on)!
Iris wanted to know where to find people to practice reading on, as her family "does not believe in all of that rubbish" and she does not live in a major city. So I sat down for 78 minutes (wow! That is like "forever!") and we went over the psychology of getting people to read for, how to do it, where to do it, and then after that we went on for another 20 minutes on even more about where and how and why this all works. This is MUST KNOW information and easily worth the cost of a private lesson (currently $90 for an hour), but because it is free you should grab a pen and take COPIOUS notes on all of this. Plenty of highly detailed analysis of why this all works and explicit instructions on how to do it. That and a few really crappy jokes but we couldn't help laughing. DO THIS. Then write me and tell me what you have questions about. Thanks for being here.Dusty

How can you trust your intuition?
How can you trust your intuition when using your cards? how do you know that you are *right* and not just making things up? This is one of the most pressing questions every serious tarot reader asks themselves at some point in their studies, and the smart readers ask this often. Blind faith in intuition to magically make everything work is a recipe for disappointment and disaster sooner than later. Your intuition needs to be developed and shaped with practice and experience, just like your hands, arms, and legs. No one is born knowing how to walk and talk. We learn by trying and doing, and those of us who have a TEACHER or a coach (think gymnastics here please) end up a hell of a lot more skilled than people who try to figure everything out for themselves. This is why I have a course, and this is why I give away free lessons. No one should try this at home untrained. In this lesson I sat down with a lovely student (Iris) and we discussed the various things that need to come into play for you to be able to reach the point of trusting your intuition when you are out there in the real-world giving real readings to real people who expect accuracy and detail. Forget any crappy readings you have had in the past. This lesson is where the rubber meets the road. THIS is what separates the charlatans and amateurs from competent tarot readers. Best of all we get this done in around 30 minutes. Please let me know if you have any questions. I am here to help. Thanks for being here and learning :-)

Tarot card astrological signs (easy)
Every tarot card in your deck has a "sign" and in today's lesson we show you how to find out what that sign is and how to understand it in the context of a reading. Lori sat in on today's lesson and helped out. We looked at the basics of astrology (qualities and elements) so that we could better understand WHY and HOW each of your tarot cards has a special and unique meaning. Nowhere else (that I know of) is the astrological value of each tarot card laid out in simple, factual, and carefully verified detail. All of this comes from The Easiest Way to learn the Tarot—EVER!! at the back of the book, and if you ever have any questions you are always welcome to email me and ask. I will do what I can to help you master all of this. Understanding the astrological sign of each card in your deck is super easy once you know how (listen to today's lesson) and it involves looking at the image and understanding what the action is that is taking place in the image. Think of this as "additional information" to add depth and rich detail to your readings. It does not replace your intuition: it enhances it. Thanks for being here :-) Let me know how I can help make this even easier for you.

Why the Celtic Cross is your BFF
The Celtic Cross spread is an overview spread that shows you all parts of a situation in ways that smaller, less coordinated spreads can't. When you learn and master this amazing spread (and all of its hidden spreads, patterns, and themes) you can get 3-5 times MORE INFORMATION than you normally could. This is three to five times more info than any other tarot reader you meet. Also, you can VERIFY the accuracy and poignancy of the CC spread *before* you open your mouth and start making predictions. This saves you time, sanity, and your reputation. I sat down to discuss all of this with Andrea today. We went 30 minutes, which was a bit longer than the new format, but it is good, solid information and a reminder to learn and use the Celtic Cross for most of your spread questions. This starts a new series of podcasts designed to help you stretch and grow your abilities in anticipation of professional training. Thank you for being here with us. I am ALWAYS here to answer questions. Just email me. :-)

Advanced spread techniques: How to double your accuracy in a reading
The main focal point of this lesson is on opening up cards and "clarification cards." We cover when to open up cards and how to do it to get the results you want (enhanced clarity, greater accuracy and much more detail. To this end I covered a lot of ground on what to do before you get to this point (needing to open up cards) and how to make the most of it when you do. Other things covered in today's free tarot lesson include what spreads not to open cards and how to silence the inner doubt and nagging voices inside your head while giving a reading. All in all these techniques (just in this one free lesson alone) will help you double your accuracy and detail level in a reading. If you are serious about mastering the tarot I have extended the $5/week ($2.50 per 90-minute video lesson essentially WITH forums, study groups, study buddies, and community access) special for a while due to a previous screw up with the sign-up process. You do not want to miss this. This is a $3,000 course that you can grab for $220, and you only have to pay $5 a week (no "downpayment" required). If you have any questions just post them here in the comments section. Thanks for being here. Dusty

How to cast more accurate spreads: pre-spreadwork / shuffling
Shuffling is an underrated art in tarot readings. Too many people assume that it is done a few times or that you hand your cards over to your client (as if they will know what to do with them). This all sounds nice in "New Age tarot 101" class but it is in fact a crippling way to remove any accuracy or precision from your readings. In fact, if you like random cards that have NOTHING AT ALL to do with your client's question or circumstance, this is the method for you. Alternatively, we can do our pre-spreadwork properly (shuffling, focusing, talking to ourselves/our client, listening for the "ding" . . .) and by doing this we can get MUCH BETTER answers. And that is what this lesson is about. There is no way I could cover all of this in 40 minutes so this is just a shot of information to improve your skills "right now" with an invitation to come learn ALL of what you need to know to become a kick-ass tarot reader at our academy. Right now we have a $5 special: $5 a week for three lessons/week (two 90-minute video lessons and one 60-minute audio), and forums, and study groups, and study buddies. You really should check this out: http://www.easytarotlessons.com/members/sign-up-for-the-course-here/ It will change your life. Anyway, thanks for being here. Please post any questions you have.

Court cards & Froot Loops!
In today's lesson we take a new look at court cards. April is a talented reader with no small amount of experience, but court cards were presenting their usual problems, so we went ahead and dove into that. Along the way we covered how to get your client to communicate more effectively and honestly with you, what types of psychic abilities you have, and why Toucan Sam is so much cooler than the Trix rabbit. We closed out with a new exercise to help court cards make sense in any situation and how your practice with your cards will make your mediumship capabilities skyrocket.

Exercise 4: Here's exactly how to do it
Dawn was having trouble with exercise four from The Easiest Way to learn the Tarot—EVER!! Going from one card to another in a linear-time fashion can be problematic if we are doubtful on the meanings of cards, or worse: if we have memorized fixed meanings for each card. So, in today's lesson we took time to go through exercise 4 several times, slowly and carefully working our way through various possible meanings. Along the way I showed Dawn how to better understand the cards in her deck, and as a last minute bonus we covered a special technique on how to master court cards in any situation. I hope you enjoy this lesson. It is simple but has great value. Thanks for being here :-)

Real life example of Advanced Spread Techniques
Vera was having issues with seeing overall patterns and the hidden inferences in the spreads she casts, so we sat down and worked through this. In today's free audio lesson we look at how cards interact in a spread. This is a very deep subject and one that cannot be covered in-depth in a 30-minute session, but we were able to get to the core issues and do a practice run where we designed an impromptu spread to solve a real-life problem. Along the way we figured out how to overcome Vera's personal concerns (the reason for the spread) and at the same time help her understand the method of blending cards, finding similarities and tensions between cards in a spread to flesh out the deeper answer to the question at hand. This is a powerful lesson and one I hope you will enjoy. It has great information to help you master your cards and become a truly gifted reader. Thanks for being here :)

Episode 104Real life spread advice: spread accuracy, court cards, yes/no questions
Today's lesson has something for everyone. What happens when you are reading a spread and your bias gets in the way of the message? How can we know when that is happening and how can we stop it? How do we know when we are reading the future versus our current state? What if things change? We need to be able to give ourselves and clients ACCURATE information, not "good for now, until it changes" information. This is what we cover in today's free audio lesson. We also cover a bit more on court cards (we can never seem to get enough of that) and how and when to use small spreads for best effect (yes/no spreads, 1, 2, and 3 card spreads). Today's lesson covers several topics and it lasts about an hour. It covers a lot of ground that will help you become a MUCH better reader by indirectly correcting most mistakes readers make. Good habits come from this lesson. I hope you enjoy it. I will have more free lessons soon. Dusty.
