Focus and the tarot-why and how: Easy Tarot Lessons episode 30
Diane, Becky, Stacia sat in for a lesson on focus, and how it is essential to readings that get results, manifestation that gets TANGIBLE results, and how to actually use it in your tarot readings. We went over this in a few ways, with several analogies to help you really get it. Thanks for being here.
This week we start a new format with the podcast--same show, but now we have made it even better by focusing exclusively on the topic of the week and teaching you in the audio lesson (podcast) and written lessons (blog) and the Easy Tarot Lessons by email (free newsletter).

Simple Spirituality #2 (manifestation lessons): Easy Tarot Lessons episode 29
A total revamp of the tarot podcast beginss with the next episode. We will still be doing the same show, but now it will be integrated with MUCH more lesson information every week. If you are serious about mastering the tarot you must sign up for our free easy tarot lessons newsletter, which has all of the written, video, and audio lessons found in one place. It comes out every week or two--and it is ALWAYS FREE.
I am inserting just one more of the "Simple Spirituality" podcast episodes into this podcast series as it is a unique look at the future. What we talked about (later in the interview) is coming to pass. The interview started out pretty mundane, but when you listen you will see where we opened up some points on (actually) manifesting your desires in real-life. Don't worry, this is the last time I will be putting up a Simple Spirituality podcast in this feed. You can find THAT podcast here.
But if you can read between the lines as this podcast develops you will see that great things are afoot.
Bill and I sat down to speak with Barbara Wainright. Unfortunately Bill 's connection in Hawaii went off-line and I was unable to get him back despite several attempts. Nonetheless we had a GREAT INTERVIEW with this amazing woman. Please listen in and see what is going on behind the scenes and how these developments will affect you.
We talked about the process of helping people improve the quality of their lives (more fun, better results, greater haappiness--real stuff, not fluffy bunny hopes and dreams). You can improve your life right now by using the techniques in this podcast, and you also get a peek behind the green curtain at what goes into training a "life coach." If you were ever curious at what the most influential people in the motivational scene were doing backstage this is a peek (I asked a lot of direct questions). And we had fun talking. Please leave your comments.

How to give GREAT readings (questions): Easy Tarot Lessons episode 28
Hi everyone. Thanks for listening :-)
Becky (private student) was kind enough to sit in today, again, and we talked about the importance of questions in a reading and how to ask them to get the most accurate and precise results. As you know by now, I am adamant on giving quality information to your clients: friends, family, strangers who pay . . .
I ranted a bit about how to set up the spread--how to find out what the client wants to know and how to rephrase their question if necessary so that you can give them the RIGHT information, not some useless fluff. Too many people get bad readings from untrined "professionals" and it gives all of us a bad name. This is why I give you free instruction. I need all off us to do better and give better results. This helps make your life ever so much easier. I hope you will listen to tonight's episode and follow, step-by-step, the process of getting the best possible answers for your clients. Let me know if you have ANY questions of course.…
Simple Spirituality #1 (manifestation lessons): Easy Tarot Lessons episode 27
I sat down with Bill Heinrich today and we discussed core manifestation principles. This is a "how-to-do-it" lesson with a little bit of who Bill is and why you should listen to him. We are starting a new podcast and the early episodes into this feed to give you guys some free manifestation lessons. Write me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let me know exactly what you want to learn. It's free and it works. As always, thanks for being here :-) …
How to manifest (proof and instructions): Easy Tarot Lessons episode 26
Becky is a student of mine in the U.K. She **just** manifested a car (yesterday). She got tired of being car-less and decided exactly what she wanted and how she was going to get it, and how much it should cost. She had her car in 18 hours. Here is exactly how she did it, what she could have done better, and a tiny bit about one of my own many manifestations--just to prove that these same techniques work everywhere, at any time, no matter who you are. Your results will be your own--because only YOU can do the work. But here are the instructions. Thanks for being here :-) …
We answer your tarot questions: Easy Tarot Lessons episode 25
Stacia, Tidal, and I sat down in a round table format and answered questions from students. Tidal is a student of mine who has gone professional, and even has his own radio show, Pagan Propensities, which you can find at tarottidal.wordpress.com
We covered issues like how to get rid of nervousness when reading, and how to increase your accuracy and overcome mental blocks. Let us know what YOU are having problems with. Please leave a comment here, and email me (me @ dustywhite . net) with your questions.
Thanks for listening!
Why we do this and how it works: Easy Tarot Lessons episode 24
carol and I sat down and did a double episode since it has been so long. I have been swamped with details for the new deck. THANK YOU to everyone who donated and contributed to the new deck. Today we talked about why we teach what we teach and how it helps you learn, and what you can do to master the tarot. At the beginning was a shameless plug for Carol's upcoming class--seriously: "Highly recommended." Study. Practice. Take your time and do this. It works. We know this. Our students know this. Yeah, we have a few (2-3 it seems) detractors, but we have hundreds of testimonials and thousands of happy students. All that matters in the end is that you become a great reader. Thanks for letting us help you master the tarot. …
Special episode!: Easy Tarot Lessons episode 24
Carol and I sat down to teach you WHY you need to know astrology and what it can do for you and also update everyone on the new astrological deck I have been working on for the past 20 years. There is a VERY SPECIAL 4-point manifestation secrets bonus hidden in this episode as well. It runs 72 minutes, but it is full of information. Take notes. Questions? email me (email@example.com) …
FREE Tarot books!: Easy Tarot Lessons episode 23
TWO special announcements in this episode!
First, we have FREE COPIES of the new tarot book: Advanced Tarot Secrets! Get yours today. Details are on the podcast--not to worry, this really is a free book, not a sales gimmick.
Secons, I am giving away free decks! I have been working on a complete reinvention of the tarot for the past 20 years and now it is almost ready. I am giving away a handful of printed-in-house, hand-signed, numbered, and personalized (with YOUR NAME on them) Ouroboros decks. These decks are valued at $1,000 each and less than 100 of them will ever be made. This is not a "limited edition" deck. This is far more rare than that. There will never be more than what is issued--less than 100 decks worldwide.
This is what the new deck will be based upon. The new deck (Ouroborous Deck) will be professionally printed and circulated throught the world. It will become the new standard of divination--but that will be what the public sees. These (less than) 100 decks are specifically for my, personal and private, students ONLY. I am teaching a course on astrology starting in a few weeks, for the ridiculous price of $4 an hour. $25 a week for 14 weeks gets you personal training from me, from absolute beginner to a solid understanding of astrology and what you can do with it to OWN YOUR DESTINY, control others (use your powers only for good), predict the fututre, and "see through anyone." (And a lot of other cool things you can do with astrology. But also you get the free deck ($1,000) and a few books I am writing on astrology, as they come out--all free.
And we revealed a completely new exercise from the new book today: "Batman and Robin." Give this episode a listen, take notes, and master this )and get your free book--and deck!!)
Get a study buddy!!: Easy Tarot Lessons episode 22
Carol, Beth, and I sat down and talked over each other today :-)
This is the how-to and why you need to get a study buddy, form a study group, or nag your teacher to help you find a study buddy. We left no stone uncovered. We tell you how to get one, where to get one, what to look for, how to be a great study buddy, how to make it fun (for you and the other person), and pretty much that is all we do for an hour. Long episode. LOTS of valuable information.
Thanks for listening.…
ETL Alpha-series #6: Advanced Spread Basics (from the new book!)
I sat down with Beth today and we talked specifically about the things you MUST DO to get a high degree of accuracy and precision in a spread. These are some of the "advanced basics" from the new book Advanced Tarot Secrets which is being written now and should be available after the first of the year. This is all super-easy stuff but these techniques alone will double your abilities as a tarot reader--literally overnight (go ahead and try them for yourself and see). You be the judge.
We covered blind spreads and the importance of having a good question (and why, and how...), how cards answer questions individually and how they work together to paint a larger picture. Knowing and applying this makes your readings more in-depth and wow's your clients, turning them into raving fans (of you!).
New exercise here: grab a stack of index cards--they will be your best friend. Also don't forget the spread protagonist. We covered this in this episode. That and the links at the end to where you can find everything (free).
Thanks for listening :-)…
ETL Alpha-series #5: Things you need to know BEFORE casting ANY spread
Beth is back :-) She and I sat down for about 40 minutes and I talked about the basics you absolutely must know before you cast any spread--things they don't teach you in tarot books, but what you learn as a pro. These "must know things" are easy to learn and implement but not exactly obvious when you are doing readings. In fact I see these things NOT DONE all of the time by amateur and professional readers. Please take notes. Also, we took a few minutes to discuss various popular spreads and when they are best used (in what situations). Thanks for listening :-) --Dusty …
Bryan's Journey (part 1): Easy Tarot Lessons episode 21
Not the fool's journey--Bryan's journey! Bryan is a new student of mine and we sat down in a real-life lesson and ran over a few of the exercises from The Easiest Way to Learn the Tarot - Ever!! We had some fun and got goofy but you can see how easy it is to learn the tarot when you use the methods outlined in my book. I wanted to show you a real session, what it is likee to learn from me, and how you can do this. Please grab your cards and have some fun. If you come up with different meanings then we did, that is even better. That is how the tarot is supposed to work. Thanks for being here. -- Dusty…
Real life students tell you what you need to know: Easy Tarot Lessons episode 20
Stacia, Carol, and Beth sat down with me and I grilled themon what they have learned and what YOU need to know about the tarot: what they liked about learning, what they hated, what was hard, and what they would go back and tell themselves if they could do it all over again.
This episode ran a bit longer than usual but iut is packed-solid with real-life advice from people who are doing it--and getting paid HUGE tips, and getting the most amazing compliments. Come join us and please--take notes.…
Becka update: Easy Tarot Lessons episode 18
Becka is one of my private students who has been on her own for a bit and we sat down and just yapped about what she has learned and how she is doing with the tarot. This is an exclusive look at a real student who started as a beginner a few months ago and has made amazing progress. Becka is proof that YOU CAN DO THIS! Highly enjoyable, I honestly think you will get a lot from this episode, especially if you are new to the tarot. Thanks for listening. …
ETL Alpha-series #4: Larger spreads. Why? Why? Why?
Larger spreads are great ways to get more details from a reading. Spreads organize the cards into clearly defined areas of life. This leaves the card meanings free to apply to the situation at hand (this is how the tarot is supposed to work). Beth and I sat down and went over this for about twenty minutes in detail, including the the how's and why's of doing it and getting results that amaze people. Then we added a few minor surprises at the end. I think you will enjoy this. It is low-key today but full of valuable information. …
ETL Alpha-series #3: It's the little things
Simplifying simple spreads: Beth and I sat down today and covered the small spreads, ones we do for every day questions and as enhancements to larger spreads. We focused on the 1, 2, and 3 card spreads and how to get the most out of them in real -life circumstances. We also covered, in-depth, the "this or that" option spread that generally works so well, and along the way accidentally synced up and pulled the same two cards, in the same order, almost 2,000 miles apart. All in all a highly-educational show with real-life examples of people doing it. I hope you enjoy it. Next podcast on Friday. …
ETL Alpha-series #2: New exercise! Life through the eyes of the tarot
Beth and I sit down and play with a new exercise where we use tarot cards to describe events that can happen to us daily. It is very easy and fun, and makes an interesting way to study with a friend.
If you can, please visit DustyWhite.net and help the cause. We know who is helping (just like Santa knows) and we give out goodies to EVERYONE who helps us make the world a better place.…
ETL Alpha-series #1: Fun with reversals!
The education of Beth begins here.
We are taking the podcast in a different direction, a more fun one. Shorter, crisper lessons. I have a new student who is fun and interesting, and she has volunteered to have some of our lessons recorded for public consumption. Obviously most of what I teach her in private is not recorded for public consumption, but this will be a series of lessons where you get top sit on my shoulder like a pixie and watch as we cover several aspects of the tarot.
A few times a week we will go over various cards and spread tips, or other aspects of reading professionally and **accurately**. There is no fluff here, no dogma, and no superstitious add-ons to the tarot. We focus only on what works. Each lesson will be around 20-30 minutes. In and out with new things for you to study and master.
If you do not have The Easiest Way to Learn the Tarot--EVER!! yet, please pick up a copy here.
Written lessons are here.
Thanks for being here. Let me know how I can make this ANY easier
How to spot patterns in spreads: Easy Tarot Lessons episode 17
Stacia is back with me for a while. Well I rant and Stacia gets a word in every once in a while. Patterns in spreads enhance the level of information in a reading but do not overpower the individual card meanings. We examine the various ways you will find cards interacting in noticable patterns and what they mean. I do rant about the Kickstarter program at dustywhite.net because there are over 15,000 of you (and hundreds more every week, thank you!) and we are changing history and need your help. I have already given away tens of thousands of dollars of free expert tarot secrets and lessons from the professionals away. I will try to continue to do so. I need your help. I need you to pledge a few dollars at the Kickstaetr drive or better yet, invest in yourself. I will teach you all of ths stuff and so much mjore it will make your head explose--for 75 cents an hour. My normal rate is $40 an hour, and that is only because I am trying to be affordable for everyone. I am asking you to help us change history and I am paying you to do it. Yeah, I can ask. I hope some of you will do the right thing and give back, given how much free stuff I am constantly giving you. We will find out, no?…
Aleister Crowley & Pamela Coleman Smith!: Easy Tarot Lessons episode 16
Oh my god! We had Robert M. Place on (again) and we dished up dirt on "Alesiter ("Ed") Crowley, his narcissism, his genius, and his flat-out lies (pretty much everywhere). We dug into the sordid past of Pamela Coleman-Smith and how she ended up with the Golden Dawn. All in fun mind you--we love our wayward heroes and heroines. LOTS of tidbits you won't find in any book, also an update on a special private retreat (secret tarot gathering), my usual ramblings, and more on how you can master the tarot for just 75 cents an hour (hint: go to http://dustywhite.net and help us pay for the art for the new deck!). This episode ran waaaay long. Robert has a wealth of tarot information and I want to know if you want more of the secret history of the tarot, and more dirt on Ed (Al) Crowley, straight from the historian's mouth. Please comment--let me know what you liked and want more of. This is a special edition you absolutely MUST listen to before August 3rd. Thanks for being here -- you know that! :-) …
Secrets of the tarot from experts: Easy Tarot Lessons episode 15
Carol and I sat down and talked about various tarot cards and interesting trivia and history that will enhance your abilities to read the tarot accurately. The new deck is out today so I mentioned that a few times. Please see it at http://www.DustyWhite.net
Now, this lesson: we covered hidden influences, subtleties, "major" and "minor" Arcana cards; also glaring mistakes in the tarot that even Stuart Kaplan has missed, and how any why the Rider Waite deck is the most effective deck for detailed, accurate readings ever designed--even though other decks are fare more interesting to look at. Please comment and send me your thoughts. I will be more than happy to help you learn in any way I can.
Again, please visit us at DustyWhite.net I will be giving away $500 worth of free exclusive astrology lessons these next two months to anyone who wants them.…
Deck art changes card meanings: Easy Tarot Lessons episode Episode 14
Hey gang. No guest or side-kick today. I sat down by myself and talked for just over half an hour about how the art of YOUR deck changes the meaning of the cards you are reading. A bit about tarot fundamentalism, which is a real problem and one that needs to be eradicated once and for all. The tarot is cool enough to stand on its own without needless dogma and regimentation that only ends up limiting your ability to give masterful readings. So 37 minutes of yapping about art with real life examples from various decks and how the tiny changes in art affect the balance of the deck and its ability to give you answers--it may not be you--it may be a poorly designed deck! Pretty decks do not necessarily make for better "working" decks. Thanks for being here. I hope to see you again soon. As always, let me know if you have ANY problems reading the tarot: firstname.lastname@example.org …
Biggest mistake tarot readers make: Easy Tarot Lessons episode Episode 13
I just sat down and went over some pages of notes. This is something that has been bothering me for some time. I see (alleged) tarot readers go online and ask strangers what THEIR readings mean. This is abysmal. It makes all of us look like amateurs. The cards speak to YOU--not to some random stranger, but between the bad tarot books and people to cheap to hire a teacher or too lazy to actually study the tarot (yeah yeah I know: no one has time anymore, we live in an instant gratification world--don't be so old-fashioned) this has to end. Now. I hate being a curmudgeon, but being able to actually foretell the future is a skill, not a parlor trick. It is the lazy and the stingy (too cheap to buy a book or hire a teacher) who make us all look like superstitious idiots. Pardon the rant--this episode is about how to avoid making yourself look dumb. It is a lesson that needed to be taught. …
How to have confidence in readings: Easy Tarot Lessons episode 12
Stacia and I sit down and answer the age-old question, "How can I be more confident when I am giving a reading to a stranger." This is a very relaxed conversation where we cover the mistakes too many readers make and the various antidotes. It is short and to the point but it really works. Please have a listen. If you have any questions just email me. Thanks for being here. …
How to read tarot cards for yourself: Easy Tarot Lessons episode 11
Julie in Australia asked about reading the tarot for yourself, so I sat down with Diana, one of my mentees and we talked about it. This is a casual lesson. LOTS of info, but nothing to buy--no sales pitches, no infomercials. We cover some very important fundamentals you need to master before you can accurately predict your own future. Asking questions about yourself has the problem of coloring the impressions you get. This can distort the meaning of the reading and provide you with useless information. So we teach you how to get past all of that, in 30 minutes. It's not that complicated but it does require actual practice of certain exercises designed to detach you from bad habits we all build up over the process of "life." A lot of it is knowing what questions to ask--and how to ask them. You really are your own best client, as you know the situation you are asking about intimately. But to get clear, concise, ACCURATE answers you need to know how to do all of this properly. After you learn this PLEASE share this with a friend. We are here to help--and it is always free. We need your help in getting the word out. We need to rid the world of BAD tarot teaching. …
Blending Cards: Easy Tarot Lessons episode 10
HERE is the visual lesson that will help you get the most from this episode: http://easytarotlessons.com/card_blends.html (lotsa pix!) This is really loose form today. It has been too long since I did an episode so I sat down with Carol, one of the students of my new deck and we just had a chat about blending cards: how to, what to do before you try blending cards in a reading so that you CAN blend cards. It gives you a LOT of information but you may have to listen to it a few times. By the time you get through this though you will be able to give MUCH better readings than most people you meet--just by mastering this one episode. …
