The world's first true astrological tarot--sure it only took 20 years to design it--but every astrologer in the world will want one.

For the past twenty years I have been reinventing the tarot. Oh, hi, by the way; I am Dusty White, author of over a dozen books, including The Easiest Way to Learn the Tarot--EVER!!, and my newest books: Advanced Tarot Secrets, The Easiest Way to Learn Astrology--EVER!!, and Aphrodite's Book of Secrets. This deck is a labor of love I began back in 1992. It is the world's first true blending of astrology and the tarot. I need your help to pay for the art. I hope you will grant me a few moments to explain why this will change your life forever . . .
* Video testimonial for the new deck **
First reviews of the deck:
Thank you so much for creating the Ouroboros Deck. I have tried to learn Astrology from countless books and nothing ever stuck. I could remember a few things about the husband and kids, but I could never figure out other peoples signs or personality. Combining learning Astrology with the artwork in the Ouroboros has made every sign and planet commit to memory and stick.
Everything makes sense and can be applied.. Why do the husband and son fight for my attention? Both have Moon in Libra. It is also easier to deal with coworkers. As you grit your teeth and wait for the supervisor's slow labored reasoning to actually get to the point you understood 10 minutes back, smile they have Mercury in Taurus. I love the fact that I am not having to constantly looking everything up in a book. Once you learn it, the big picture flows.
The cards have also been a wonderful tool for manifesting. I used Aries Moon to muster up some "Damn-it, I'm Worth It" confidence. In the process I have found more time for myself (even with the kids home for the summer) and I've lost 9 pounds. Because ,oh yes, this fiery gypsy is Worth It!
I can't wait to use the cards for tarot spreads. The Ouroboros Deck can open up a new level of understanding for me. Timing, understanding personalities, and underlying issues will be so much easier to get out of the spread. The levels of symbolism and the stories within the deck itself make it the perfect evolution of the tarot.
Thanks again for your vision and gift to the world on this Dusty. I have enjoyed every minute of class and your guidance in Astrology and the Ouroboros Deck is already opening up more of the world to me."
. . . here's one more . . .
"I took the class on the new Astro deck and was really glad I did. I have always been interested in astrology and I have studied the tarot for years. I was ready for a challenge. I had read Dusty’s book , “The Easiest Way to Learn Tarot—Ever!!”. I knew I liked his style.
When Dusty teaches he gives everything he has to his students, time and availability being the two most things. He makes himself available for questions through email. Put simply, he loves teaching and sharing his knowledge. He takes the time to make sure his students understand. He lets them know that questions are welcome.
Taking the Astro Tarot class was fun! Dusty teaches in a way that is far from boring. He engages his students and expects good things from them. He makes his students want to please him. I will not lie. As students we have to come prepared to learn. We have to be prepared for class. And he makes it safe to learn and make mistakes. I made plenty of mistakes and he never became angry with me. He was patient and knew I was trying.
What did I learn? What didn’t I learn? I learned I am a triple cancer and that means having 3 planets in my sun sign. That makes me very emotional and filled with feeling. I can be a little moody and my chart confirms it. I have always been very verbal when I see an injustice. I say what is on my mind and have trouble filtering it. It took me years to actually start trying to use diplomacy. What is some of the reason for that? I have Moon in Aries. That is also why I HAVE to say something if I see a dog in a car left alone. My chart explains so much of who I am. Dusty’ and his class helped me understand myself better.
I will take every class Dusty has to offer me whenever possible. As I said, his classes are not boring and that makes me very happy. It is not just a lecture class which I would hate. If you really want to learn something and want it taught in an interesting way take a class given by Dusty White."
. . . okay, ONE more, but this is it! . . .
"I think the most amazing thing about Dusty White’s Astro Deck is the pictures. They are incredibly accurate. I was able to take the cards that represent the planets and signs in my chart and literally see my life in the images. Studying this deck with Dusty means I’ve gotten used to one mind blowing moment after another!
The best thing is that this deck is for anybody and everybody, whether or not you’ve ever studied astrology or the tarot before. If you’ve studied astrology before and think you understand it – this deck and the insights and information Dusty will teach you in the workbook will take your understanding to a whole new level. And if you’ve been frustrated with the tarot because the meanings of the cards can be confusing and limited, this deck will change all of that for you. I know it has for me!
This deck encompasses the best of both worlds of astrology and tarot and lets you discern the future, meditate, understand others, get what you want out of life, you name it, like no other deck that has ever existed before. I’ve studied astrology and tarot for years and I’ve never seen anything like it.
This deck, unlike a traditional tarot deck, leaves NOTHING out. Like Dusty says, astrology is the understanding of how every kind of energy in the universe works. The images are bursting with easy to understand symbolism and cover every aspect of astrology – signs, planets, elements, qualities, polarities … in incredibly beautiful, stunning scenes that are simple to remember and interpret.
These cards are a world unto themselves. They open up this world here on Planet Earth and explain your place and purpose in it in a simply profound way. Dusty has poured his heart and soul and deep knowledge of astrology into this deck, and it shows in every breathtaking card."

So, if you have gotten this far you might want a little more information on exactly what these books are . . .
This is the best-reviewed tarot book in Amazon history. Even the Golden Dawn states that there is no better book for the beginner. (I am blushing--really). I am very proud that this book helps people who feel they cannot learn the tarot after they have read countless books. I know this--they tell me (almost) every day. It is 345 pages of tarot workbook (8x10). The thing weighs almost two pounds. This book is unique and contains everything but a pencil and an actual deck of cards to play with.
This is my baby. Everything I wish someone would have whispered in my ear 35 years ago when I first picked up a deck of cards and an instruction book will be in here. The book is being written right now and will be out by spring, Christmas if we get funded. This book will contain all of the knowledge I have gained from 20 years of teaching the tarot, decades of reading tarot professionally, and the unique experience of working in-person with over 400 of the world's top psychics on a daily basis for several years. (Oh, I picked their brains clean!) Nothing is held back--and there will be no parlor tricks to impress your clients and no faux tarot history or artificially added systems to confuse you or make me look mysterious and all-powerful. This is straight from the gut: how to give readings that are three times more detailed than you ever have before--with the same exact cards, and how to verify spreads before you cast them, and how to never give a bad spread again, and how to manifest anything you want, and how to read the distant past and future (accurately), and how to find hidden spreads within larger spreads--and more, and more . . .
So . . . what's next?
This is the next book in the series. It is so secret I am only going to show you the cover. I might offer advance copies as a stretch reward.
Thanks for being here. Please ask me any questions you may have.

Oh yeah . . . brand new testimonial (just came in and it is on file):
"I LOVE this book. I just started working with it about a week ago and have accomplished more with my card reading than I have in the past few years I've owned the cards! I've left them sit on the shelf for months at a time because I was frustrated with them, now I have a hard time putting them down! Dusty does a phenomenal job in his teaching approach and takes the stress and struggle out of trying to learn and remember card meanings. It makes "connecting the dots" incredibly easy. I decided to purchase this book after reading a few reviews on Amazon, good and not so good, and I am NOT sorry I bought this! There is probably more information between the covers of this book that what you will find in several other tarot books combined. In addition I have viewed his website and podcasts he tells you about in the book which were also a huge help in clarifying things for me. I have also contacted Dusty via the e mail he provides for one on one help. He responded to me faster than what I expected with a lot of great information to help me. If there is only one book on reading the tarot that you should own, THIS is it!!"
Art is expensive! The deck has 84 images, and each one needs to be painted by a master artist. That is our baseline expense. AND we cannot do this project without taking care of our current artist--that is just morally correct. Now for the expensive part: Double everything. Just over half of the money raised goes back to you. The decks and signed books and hours of training and videos all cost money to produce (not "me getting paid money" but hard costs like deck and book manufacturing, shipping, the usual stuff). Add in all of the minor expenses like Kickstarter and Amazon fees, cancellations, taxes, and then the total just gets crazy. But I figured I would make it such an amazing value that you would get 3 to 10 times more than you put in, making it a fair return for helping us out. If this did not answer your question please email me! Thanks for reading this of course.
I have been reading the tarot for 35 years and teaching it to professionals for twenty. I found along the way that the tarot is a great tool for divining the future; it is a fun game (people in Europe play it as a game more than they read the future--it is in America that we don't use it for games very much). The tarot is probably the BEST TOOL ever invented for sharpening your intuition. I teach people how to do this all of the time. I can teach you, but it does take a lot of actual practice--so it's not like I can simply wave a magic wand or something.
Now . . . the tarot was in fact invented as a game, not as a tool for fortune telling. So it has a few flaws that can be corrected. This is why people are always making "Oracle Decks." These are tarot decks without the tarot. This deck is an oracle deck based on classical astrology. It retains the basic look and feel of the tarot but it uses classical astrology, and some enhanced information, inside it to make it far more powerful of a tool. It is also an easy way to learn astrology. All in all it is an improvement on the tarot as a divination device.
Hi! I am Dusty White!
Okay, so I have been a professional reader and astrologer for decades. I started studying metaphysics around age 8 and really dove in at age 11. I devoured everything I could get my hands on, including some secret mystery school lessons I was not supposed to see. These melted my brain. They were like nothing I had ever seen and as difficult as some of them were to understand I absorbed everything and read and read, and studied the diagrams, remembering them for years as I read other magical philosophies and lessons. I have studied ceremonial magic, "ESP," (back when they called it that), witchcraft, Huna, and all kinds of psychic development techniques, Buddhism and other mind-altering philosophies, and pretty much devoted my life to finding out why everything works and how. My birth date is 12/18/63. You can look me up astrologically and get a feel of why I am so obsessed with this stuff. Obviously there is a TON of stuff I suck at, but magic and metaphysics is my forte, my wheelhouse. It is what I was born to do and I invest every day of my life to tinkering with reality and seeing how we as humans can increase our understanding of it and be more effective at getting what we want from life.
I have been working on this one project for twenty years, even as I have written dozens of other books. I have had tens of thousands of clients as an astrologer, psychic, and tarot reader. I have a few major accomplishments but detailing them here would sound like boasting. The point is that I live for this stuff. I have written the best-reviewed tarot book in history and am about to publish the easiest way to learn astrology--ever. This will change everything. Once we know HOW things work they are infinitely easier to manipulate. Life is no different.
Anyway, I hope this answered the question. If not please email me and we will figure this out together. Thanks for reading this. :-)
