Tarot Card Meanings with Benebell: Video Series

This will be a long-term project. As of this posting, I don’t have any estimate for how long it will take me to complete or even what the pathway of this project will look like.

Learn the Tarot Card by Card 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.

July 26, 2019 Note. Initially this course series was going to be titled “Learn the Tarot Card by Card,” but within the hour of posting the first video on the Aces, a tarot colleague expressed her displeasure with the name being too similar to her own tarot card meanings project called “Tarot Card by Card.” Although there is no rational or legal reason I would need to change the name of my series, out of amity and respect, I’ve taken the initiative to make the change. 

COURSE OBJECTIVES

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) To further deepen your understanding of my deck, the Spirit Keeper’s Tarot (SKT).

COURSE FORMAT

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.

To turn on the closed captioning or subtitles for any video in this lecture series, click on the “CC” icon in the bottom right corner of the YouTube video.

Below the video just above the description box, you’ll see three horizontal dots in the bottom right corner. Click on those three dots and a window of three options will appear. Click on “Open transcript.” The text for the video will then appear along the right hand column adjacent to the video. You’ll be able to read the transcript of the video instead of watching it.

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.

As we advance and finish covering more cards from the deck, I’ll also start to reconcile the different card sets, which doesn’t pertain directly to card meanings, and so that kind of content will be written out in the companion blog posts. So you don’t want to miss out on the companion blog posts. After each video lecture, please do click on and read the supplemental write-up.

However, whether the entirety of the video series will be free to the public, formatted into a tarot primer course offering at some point, moved over to Patreon or some other similar platform, or how exactly this project will transform mid-stream is still up in the air.

At this time, I’m playing by ear and feeling it out video by video.

  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. 🌙✨

    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!

  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!

    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!

    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…
