Tarot @ Teatime Episode 39: Tarot Storytelling

Tune in for the final episode of the cur­rent sea­son of our orig­i­nal series, “Tarot @ Teatime” as we dis­cuss Tarot Storytelling.

Episode 39: Tarot Storytelling
In this episode we talk about Tarot sto­ry­telling, and why this is so impor­tant to both devel­op­ing as a read­er as well as to pro­vid­ing quer­ents with a real­ly pow­er­ful, com­pelling narrative.

Nar­ra­tive – sto­ry­telling – is an impor­tant part of a Tarot reader’s tool­box, and in fact, Tarot read­ers have tra­di­tion­al­ly been sto­ry­tellers, tellers of tales that they see in their cards.

We talk about how Tarot read­ers can devel­op this skill, and how they can use their cards to begin devel­op­ing a nar­ra­tive — a sto­ry that is unique and ger­mane to their querent.

“Tarot @ Teatime” is broad­cast on Thurs­days and Sun­days at noon and 4pm SLT/Pacific Time.

This is the final episode of the cur­rent series of Tarot @ Teatime. You can find the exist­ing shows in the series on Mix­cloud.

A new series begins on Sun­day, April 14th. In each episode, Hon­ey Heart will dis­cuss one card from the pop­u­lar Rid­er Waite Smith deck, cov­er­ing sev­er­al dif­fer­ent aspects of the card and includ­ing a sam­ple 3‑card read­ing fea­tur­ing the card in the key posi­tion in the lay­out. Watch this space for more information.

Tarot @ Teatime Episode 38: The Haughty Swords

Tune in for the lat­est episode of our orig­i­nal series, “Tarot @ Teatime” as we dis­cuss the suit of Swords.

When Pamela Cole­man Smith designed the cards we now know as the Rid­er-Waite-Smith deck, she was influ­enced by an ear­ly pack, the Sola Bus­ca, that she saw pic­tures of in the British Muse­um. This influ­ence is par­tic­u­lar­ly notice­able in the suit of Swords.

How­ev­er the result of this influ­ence is that the imagery of the Sword cards in RWS and lat­er RWS-derived decks can be found a lit­tle mis­lead­ing to the reader.

In Episode 38 we work through the cards, dis­cussing their imagery and how they may be read in a way that is true to their char­ac­ter, focus­ing on words and communication.

“Tarot @ Teatime” is broad­cast on Thurs­days and Sun­days at noon and 4pm SLT/Pacific Time, that’s 8pm and mid­night UK time.

Tarot @ Teatime — Episode 37: De-Mystifying the Tarot

This episode was record­ed on June 22 before a live audi­ence at VCRa­dio Tow­er at the Sec­ond Life 19th Birthday.

The pro­gramme is, as its name sug­gests, intend­ed to pro­vide an intro­duc­tion to the Tarot, and it cov­ers a lit­tle of the his­to­ry of the cards and gives some point­ers, sug­ges­tions and exam­ples on how to read them.

The show goes out on Thurs­days and Sun­days at 12 noon and 4pm Pacific/SLT.


Tarot @ Teatime — Episode 36: Binary Readings

Nor­mal­ly we would sug­gest that read­ers use at least a 3‑card spread with their quer­ents, as these can give a sur­pris­ing amount of information.

How­ev­er there are times and cir­cum­stances where a quer­ent or a read­er needs a quick yes/no answer.

These “bina­ry” read­ings can be car­ried out with one or two cards, or you can start with one or two and expand the read­ing with an added com­bi­na­tion to give more detail.

We look at meth­ods of car­ry­ing out bina­ry and com­bi­na­tion read­ings, and pro­vide examples.

The episode goes out on Thurs­days and Sun­days at 12 noon and 4pm Pacific/SLT.

Tarot @ Teatime — Episode 35: Relationship Spreads

The most pop­u­lar top­ic for read­ings is rela­tion­ships: whether roman­tic, work-relat­ed, fam­i­ly or friend­ships. Most ques­tions con­cern one of three aspects of rela­tion­ships: attract­ing them, main­tain­ing them, or endings/loss. This episode looks at spreads that are help­ful in answer­ing these kinds of very com­mon ques­tions. In addi­tion the pro­gramme pro­vides some sug­ges­tions on how to frame the most effec­tive ques­tions — and the ques­tions to avoid.

The episode goes out on Thurs­days and Sun­days at 12 noon and 4pm Pacific/SLT, up to and includ­ing June 30th.

Tarot @ Teatime — Episode 34: Tarot Etiquette

In episode 34 we dis­cuss some of the more eso­teric aspects of card read­ing such as the eti­quette of work­ing with tarot, using and stor­ing the cards, how to frame a query for max­i­mum impact, and then final­ly the meta­phys­i­cal aspect of the cards, or why they work in the mate­r­i­al plane as well as in a vir­tu­al setting.
