    BTW 60: Knight of Pentacles – Let Your Pleasure Guide You

    Play Episode Listen Later Jan 14, 2022 54:50

    One of the most common questions for tarot readers is about how people can find ways to make a living doing what they love. In this episode, we talk about how the Knight of Pentacles attempts to answer that question, and get to some ecology and mythology along the way. We discuss the Bee Goddesses of ancient Crete, pollinators, the Great Plains buffalo, astrological correspondences, and where the bulls and the bees meet in the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice.This episode is dedicated to Amanda's kitty familiar, Pagan, who passed from this world in the early hours of January 12th, and all the listeners who have recently lost their loved ones. We send out our gratitude to all the Between the Worlds listeners who have offered their support and care, with special thanks to Nick Mattos and the Shift Network who generously sponsored a grove of 11 trees in the Superior National Forest in Pagan's honor. We dedicate the grove to all who are missing their loved ones right now.To find out more about our workshops either scroll down or visit our website. www.betweentheworldspodcast.com/shopTo leave a review of the podcast on iTunes, open your Apple Podcasts APP and scroll down to the comments.

    Today on Between the Worlds we discuss the transition from the Hierophant year to the Lovers year. What it means for you, and what it means for the world. Tune in to find out how 2021 deepened our understanding of lineages and ancestry in recognition of the more-than-human world; and how the Hierophant called us all to become students and masters. We discuss the concept of the daimon as an intermediary between the human and more-than-human realms, and how that may have impacted us collectively and personally. Finally, we take a deep dive into the Lovers year, anticipating likely themes relating to love, relationships, independence, interdependence,  individualism, decoloniality, what we need to compost, and what the Lovers year is calling out for each of us to practice.  Come walk with us in the open winds, and talk with us like the Lovers do!To find out more about our workshops either scroll down or visit our website. www.betweentheworldspodcast.com/shopTo leave a review of the podcast on iTunes, open your Apple Podcasts APP and scroll down to the comments.

    Welcome to our first episode on the court cards! The Page of Pentacles teaches us how to find our gifts, and more importantly, how to enjoy them! Court cards are our most requested cards, because they're so puzzling. Court cards can teach us about the masks that we wear and the personas or roles that we take on. They can indicate personality types. They can also help us understand where we are in our processes of transformation. The Page of Pentacles is the Child of Wisdom. They are practicing becoming secure in a world that is inherently unstable and constantly changing. The person in this card is GIFTED, and their task, and your task (if this card comes up for you) is to figure out how to share that gift with the world. Tune in to this episode for a discussion on how to recognize your gifts, what gifts are, medieval roles and what they have to do with us now, magical stones, astrological correspondences, Vikings, the Princess of the Echoing Hills, mitochondrial eve, and where you need to go to call in the power of the Rose of the Palace of the Earth.

When the 8 of Pents comes up, you're being called to know your craft so well, to be so confident in it, that you can innovate.

Whether that's in your practice as a witch or a musician, or a podcaster or whatever you're doing. Your real work and practice begins when you're able to innovate according to what wants to be done, not what what is imposed by the outside.Join us as we discuss how to find your flow with artist, astrologer and tarotista, Alejandra Luisa León is an artist. She began collaging as a way to process grief, and The Lioness Oracle Tarot was the result.

    When the 7 of Pentacles comes up in a reading it's a sign that we're worried about all the ways we might fail. But the 7 of Pentacles offers us an opportunity to turn failure into an act of rebellion and … pleasure.In this episode we discuss the relationship between the 7 of Pentacles and the Chariot card; its correspondence to Saturn in Taurus; how 7s usually portend and initiation of some kind; and analyze it all through the lens of Jack Halberstam's glorious book, THE QUEER ART OF FAILURE. We also go into a discussion of the relationship of the 7 of Pentacles to gardening; how plants teach you about love and loss; abuelita knowledge; how to recognize when a plant wants to work with you; creating refuges; how fungi create networks of intelligence; and what we should do if we know the world is ending tomorrow.Our guest this week is queer artist, herbalist, and plant lover Flora Pacha, previously known as La Loba Loca, host of the WildWeeds Podcast, teacher of feminist brujeria workshops, keeper of pigs, and tender of lands.

Claire Willett's The Broken Heart Spread is a deep dive into the world of modern tarot card reading. Over the course of a single day, we meet seven women at seven different personal thresholds, all looking to the wisdom of the tarot for guidance in matters of the heart. The tarot cards open doors for each of the women - and Delphine herself - to write the next chapter of their own story. The Broken Heart Spread is currently streaming through August 22nd on Stellar. Catch the film on your own time through Video on Demand, tickets start at just $20 and can be found at thetheatreco.org. We hope you enjoy this movie normalizing the magic of witches!**********************************Speaking on the truth of suffering and fear, Zora Neale Hurston said that, only "half gods are worshipped in wine and flowers. Real gods require blood.” The Five of Pentacles is not a comfortable card. It speaks of pain and privation, the moments that bring us to our knees. But, as Amanda and her guest Dr. Thea Wirsching discuss in this episode, those moments are also invitations from the real and often blood thirsty gods to wrestle with the angels of our history.5s are ruled by the hierophant. The priest, the Pope, the card in the major arcana that connects us with our spiritual traditions; in some decks it is called, "Ancestor." The 5 of Pentacles demands our humility. It is an invitation to love life in it all its blizzards and madness and freezing winds. We discuss the Little Match Girl; the 4 Noble Truths of Buddhism; African American literature of the 19th century; The Wedding Crashers; how religion can offer salvation... and be a bunch of bullshit;  Mercury in Taurus; and where to find refuge.Our guest is Thea Wirsching is an Evolutionary astrologer and has been practicing astrology for almost two decades.  Her counseling business, The Pluto Babe, helps guide her clients in the process of releasing shame. She received her PhD from UCLA, and her dissertation focused on the history and literature of American occultism.  Much of this original research appears in her forthcoming publication, The American Renaissance Tarot (2021).  As a Tarot reader, Thea emphasizes the healing power of narrative and the cards' facility to write a new story.  References in this episode include:CLOTEL, by William Wells Brown, the first African-American novel (1853)Rachel Pollack, “78 Degrees of Wisdom.”Zora Neale Hurston, "Their Eyes Were Watching God."Chiron Armand.

    The 4 of Pentacles is about creating stability, economic security, a healthy body, a cozy home, or anything else that nourishes and sustains us. But if security is something that MOST of us long to have, then why does the 4 of Pentacles seem like such a crabby card? When we pull the 4 of Pentacles, Tarot is coming to us like a close friend, putting their hands on our shoulders, looking us in the eye and quietly asking: "Is what you're doing you right now really getting you what you want? Maybe, it's time to let go."In this episode we talk about the relationship between the 4 of Pentacles, the Emperor Card, and the Death Card; Moliere's play "The Miser"; Charles Eisenstein's "Sacred Economics"; FOMO; Snoop Dog; being in integrity; how to tell when you're operating out of fear; scarcity and abundance; trusting your own value; somatic practices to help you take the best step forward; and how to create true abundance.Our guest this episode is Liliana Perez, a psychic medium, intuitive channel, deck creator and working witch.

    BTW 45: Sand Talk with Tyson Yunkaporta

    On today's episode we're talking with Tyson Yunkaporta, author of “Sand Talk: How Indigenous Thinking Can Save the World.” Tyson is a senior lecturer in Indigenous Knowledges at Deakin University in Melbourne and is a member of the Apalech clan in Queensland, Australia. "Sand Talk" explains how the teachings of aboriginal culture can help us imagine a way to a sustainable future by emphasizing community and connection over individualism and fragmentation, and by cultivating respect for the land. In this episode, we talk about how even when Western cultures seek out indigenous knowledges, they lack a framework to be able to understand what they're being offered. Indigenous thinking, according to Tyson, is relational. It requires long term connection and commitment to the community and the land. It's not just about using didgeridoos, or smudge sticks, (or wands and cauldrons as the case may be), it's about engaging with a larger matrix of connectivity that is the TRUE essence of indigenous thinking and way of life.. We're really excited to share this episode with you!

    BTW 42: Underworld, But Make It Fashion – Ace of Pents Part 2

    Play Episode Listen Later Jul 1, 2021 63:22

    In this episode, Amanda tells the folktale of Tannhauser, a 13th century knight and writer of erotic poetry. (This episode is steamy!). Though the story takes place in Germany, it was a variation of a tale common throughout Europe over a thousand year period while European culture was transitioning from animist paganism to Christianity. It tells the story of a mortal man seduced by an otherworldly woman, such as a fairy queen or goddess, who lures him to her Underworld paradise. This story asks us: where does abundance actually come from? Does it come from the land, physical pleasure, healthy food, enjoying loved ones, and contributing to our community in some way? Or does abundance come from working hard, getting a well paying job, saving money, and playing by "the rules"? When Spirit presents us with its gifts, what should we do with them? How can we cherish the abundance available to us and help it grow? Tune in to find out!Please note that this is part 2 of our Ace of Pentacles episode, continuing from last week, but you can totally listen to it as a stand alone piece. Just note, it might be a little too sexy for sensitive listeners. ** TO ENTER OUR CONTEST TO WIN A FREE WORKSHOP OR 1/2 HOUR TAROT SESSION...**Simply go to Apple / iTunes Podcasts  , leave a sweet review of the show, screenshot it and then email it to us at betweentheworldspodcast@gmail.com.If you are not a subscriber to the BTW Weird Circle, you will be entered to win free participation in the upcoming Temperance Workshop, a $55 dollar value.If you ARE a Weird Circle Subscriber, you will be entered to win a free 1/2 hour tarot session with Amanda (a $100 value).If you've already written us a review, that's no problem, just screenshot your previous review (include an update if you want), and send it our way. Thank you so much for helping to support our podcast as we grow! References in this episode include:Graham Harvey, “Contemporary Paganism: Listening People, Speaking Earth”Heather Whipps, “The Profound History of Coins,” https://www.livescience.com/2058-profound-history-coins.html#:~:text=The%20world's%20first%20coins%20appeared,money%20had%20been%20around%20awhile.Tannhäuser in Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tannh%C3%A4userNorma Lorre Goodrich, “Medieval Myths.”D.L.

    When the 10 of Swords appears, it's usually because you’re ready to call it. The battle is over. There’s no going back, and it’s time to MOVE ON.  The  10 cards are often about our collective experience. In this episode, we think about the social causes of defeat, or “ruin” as it’s called in the Thoth deck. Because we live in an individualist society we tend to think that when we experience ruin it’s our own fault, but often it’s a social set up. This card asks us to consider “what if our problems are systemic rather than personal,” and, what we can do about it. We discuss  all of this and more with our special guest, tarot expert Mary K. Greer.Mary K. Greer is an independent scholar, writer, teacher, and professional tarot consultant known for her innovative teaching techniques.
