Tarot Bytes: The Podcast
Bite-sized lessons for Tarot beginners
Created by Theresa Reed, The Tarot Lady
Welcome to Tarot Bytes – the tarot podcast for people who want to learn tarot…but don’t have all day. Short, bite-sized tarot lessons.
Episode 151: Diving Into Dust II Onyx with Courtney Alexander
One of the most stunning decks to come out in the past few years is Dust II Onyx by Courtney Alexander. Some of my listeners wanted to learn more about the deck – and the talented artist behind it. In this episode, Courtney joins me to talk about the inspiration for her deck, invocation, ancestors, ritual, and bonding with the deck. We also learn about the mysterious “Black Onyx” card and practice one of the spreads in the book.
If you have this deck and want to learn more about it, you’ll love this episode! Don’t have it yet? This may convince you to get it. (PS a travel version is coming out! YAY!)
Courtney Alexander is a multimedia artist, creative director, and writer with a Bachelor’s in Studio Art from the University of South Florida. In her past work, she dug into issues of duality, hypersexuality, and self-awareness; a much more personal dialogue that served to create vulnerability and explore the complex nature of her existence. Her paintings and sculptures are abstract and experimental, allowing for a more tactile sensory experience.
The Dust II Onyx Tarot Deck is a natural progression in her exploration of identity and her largest project to date. Her next mission is to create a publishing platform that caters to minority and marginalized artists who desire to create uplifting and educational products for their communities.
Grab your favorite deck, put in your earbuds, and dive in!
