Tarot Card Meanings with Benebell: Video Series

Tarot Card Meanings with Benebell is going to be an educational video series covering the 78 keys or cards of the tarot, showcasing the distinct attributions for four different deck systems: the TdM, the RWS, the Thoth, and my own deck, the SKT.


Here are my objectives for the course:

(1) Facilitate familiarity of the TdM, RWS, Thoth, and SKT so you become proficient at reading any and all of the four systems,

(2) Offer a card by card primer designed to help memory retention of the key meanings in a more visually engaging way than studying them out of a book, and

(3) Supplement your course work with Holistic Tarot (North Atlantic Books, 2015).


The series will be designed for visual learners. The video format also benefits auditory learners. However, if reading comprehension is what you need to help with retention of what you’re studying, then turn on the Closed Captioning for the video. You will also be able to read the written transcript of each installment.

The videos themselves will try to stay on topic, i.e., only focus on the card meanings and attributions. I’m also trying to be wary of video length, so I will have to leave out a lot of details and aspects. My hope is you are supplementing these videos with a trusty tarot reference book (or multiple books…) and so the general overview these video lectures offer will suffice.

Each video installment will come paired with a written post where I can add insights that I believe are important as you develop your understanding of the card attributions, but might be a little “off topic” and so I didn’t want to address it directly in the video.


The chronology of course topics and videos will be as follows:

    Hello. New girl commenting here. 👋🏻
    I’m so excited to watch this video series. My SKT deck is arriving soon and I’m mindblown reading all the books and watching the video series. You are a wonderful teacher.

    Thanks for sharing all your wisdom, knowledge and insight. ❤

  2. Interesting, I’m doing similar on my blog with different decks, but only focussing on the Astrological/Tarot aspects of the Major Arcana. Look forward to reading your perspectives with the various decks. 🌙✨


  3. Awesome! Thank You for remembering CC!^^ & explaining how it works!^^ lol
    btw I always look for interesting Egypt/mythological references to Major arcana will you include it as well when you get there?;)

    I loved your Tao series and your teaching style and so I can’t wait to see this series!
    Already prepared for note taking!
    Whatever you decide to do with the series later if I can ill definitely support you and I feel like I end every comment with this but it’s honestly so true: thank you!


  5. Jam

    This is a very cool thing you’re doing! I look forward to seeing how you decide to play it out, and getting a chance to sit down and watch this video. Thanks for sharing it!

    I love the concept… and I love the “small bites” or should I say “single dishes” .. yes.. single dishes is far more apropos. We can savor the different notes in the dish as you walk us through each of the four systems for a particular key.

    And you absolutely should charge something for the series. That’s a *huge* time investment if that 20 minutes for the Aces is any indication… and that doesn’t even account for your knowledge and perspective.. which is, in my humble opinion… singular. You give us so much for no cost! An example is I just put in my order for the Bone Script book and deck three days ago… you charged nothing for all that time and effort you put into getting those files created and formatted to make our orders painless. And that’s just ONE example of the many offerings you have for us. IOW.. not everything you do need be free 😉 Let us support your efforts on our behalf!

    What a wonderful offering! The first video was so informative and I love going through the deck numerically rather than by suits – such a good way to learn. Thank you!


  8. Thank you for your creativity, generous spirit and brilliant mind! Whatever format you decide to offer the rest of the series in will be well worth the investment for me to continue to studying with you.


  9. I think the side by side comparison is great! Just what my Tarot self wanted. Excited to follow along in whatever format you choose. Thank you for the preview Benebell!


  10. Joy Lowell

    Thank you. This is awesome. I plan to follow this work onto whatever platform(s) you put it. Thank you for sharing so generously and inclusively and accessibly.


  11. This really works for me! I just ‘discovered’ tarot a few months ago and comparing the same cards, in different decks, is proving to be a great way to learn about the cards for me.

    (And you should charge us. It’s not that I can’t find enough ways to spend my money 😉 but I would gladly pay for this kind of content from you!)

  12. I wanted to thank you for including the transcript with your video as not always do I have the chance to watch a video, but I can always carry around my papers to read! Another great project to follow along. I am so excited and grateful!


  13. sylvanmoon

    I’m also really excited about this series that you’re doing! No matter whether you charge or not, I’ll do my best to follow with notebook in hand! The decks that resonate with me the most with what you did with the Aces are: the RWS, Mary-el and SKT. Looking forward to what comes next!


  14. M3

    THANK YOU!!! I had been looking for this exact information!

    Seeing all of the different Tarot Styles, side by side, really does clear up so many questions that I had. Not all 3 are the same but there’s a thread. I still want to really deep into numerology with this series in the back of my mind.

    Does anyone have a prefered style to use for specific types of readings? Like TdM for more intuitive readings or RWS for every day questions…

    Are you not going to finish this series? I just got the study guide in, but I’m upset I bought the book if the series is incomplete..
