And so much more!Danica is an online pagan educator and life and business coach. She is known for her podcast Fair Folk, a project dedicated to sharing the sacred song and folk traditions of Europe.

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.

Her familiar is the hawk, so if you see one, recognize that Circe might be present. In this episode we discuss the beautiful demi-goddess Circe in all her glory with one of her priests, Nick Dickinson. He tells us how to invoke her, and why Circe is a goddess all witches need to know. He also shares his methods for lifting the evil eye, and breaking curses from his family lineage of Greek Folk Magic. Do you know how the evil eye gets transmitted? You might have done it yourself by accident. Find out what it is and how to lift it by tuning in!We are absolutely in love with Circe, her wisdom, her wileyness, her complexity, her mastery. We seriously could have talked with Nick for YEARS! We're so excited to share this episode with you, dear listeners. You're going to love it! A bit more about our guest...

    This episode is sponsored by a new film created for the Tarot reading community from The Theatre Company in Portland, Oregon. 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.

    The 4 of Pentacles is about creating stability, economic security, a healthy body, a cozy home, or anything else that nourishes and sustains us.

    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..

    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. With an M.A. in English Literature, she taught Tarot in colleges for fifteen years. She is the author of twelve books on tarot and on magic, and is an initiate of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, Priestess/Hierophant in the Fellowship of Isis, and student of the Mysteries. Her books include: Tarot for Your Self: A Workbook for Personal Transformation, 21 Ways to Read a Tarot Card, Women of the Golden Dawn: Rebels and/Priestesses, and she is a co-author of Pamela Colman Smith: The Untold Story.  You probably already have one of her books, and now you'll get to hear her in person.

    BTW 31: On Swords and "Conflict is Not Abuse" with Guest Sarah Schulman

    Play Episode Listen Later Jan 14, 2021 71:47


    A sword is a weapon, and weapons are used in armed conflicts. So we wanted to bring Sarah Schulman, author of the book CONFLICT IS NOT ABUSE: OVERSTATING HARM, COMMUNITY RESPONSIBILITY AND THE DUTY OF REPAIR, on the show to discuss the nature of conflict and what we can do to resolve it. Turns out, Sarah has been practicing tarot for decades, and rather than seeing the Suit of Swords as being about conflict, she sees it as being about truth and realization. In this episode we have a lively discussion about how the suit of swords works; how people in positions of power (like some police officers and "President" Tr**p) like to see themselves as victims even when they're being abusive and why that is; and how the Suit of Swords calls us to take an honest look at ourselves and our communities. This is one of those episodes we SO WISH we could listen to with you in person, because it's challenging and invites a rigorous dialogue. Listen to it with your quarantine buddy and discuss. We're sure it will give you a lot to talk about. Let us know what you think!More on our guest: Sarah Schulman has written over 18 books, plays, and screenplays. She’s an lgbtqia+ activist, and AIDS historian. Has been awarded a Guggenheim, among many other awards, is the Co-Founder of MIX: NY LGBT Experimental Film and Video Festival, Co-Director of ACT UP Oral History Project, and the US Coodinator of the first LGBT Delegation to Palestine.

    Everyone knows the 3 of Swords, because everyone has known heartbreak on some level, or will someday. When this card appears, so too does hurt. But the hurt points to something authentic and true within your nature that is not being treated with the care that it needs. The solution is tenderness. Our medicine is humility and gratitude. While we might resist the 3 of Swords, it’s actually a good thing, because its wisdom helps us become capable of true intimacy. We might not push people away, or project as much, now that our wounds are being made visible. The poison is also the medicine. As our guest Jessica Dore says in this episode, the 3 of Swords reveals "the dirt-work of the heart"... if we dig hard enough, we might just get a garden.Our guest today is Jessica Dore, who has a brilliant, soulful approach to the tarot, which she offers via her exceptionally popular Instagram and Twitter feeds. She’s a licensed social worker, who also worked in publishing for many years, and now she’s a full time tarot maven.

Pour water into bowl; add yeast and stir until dissolved. Add milk, butter, salt and sugar. Stir until well blended.Step 2. Sprinkle in 3 Cups of the flour, 1 cup at a time, stirring until flour is evenly moistened. Add 4th cup of flour and beat until dough is smooth and elastic (about 5 minutes--rest when you get tired). Mix in 5th cup flour to make a stiff dough.Step 3. Measure 6th cup of flour; sprinkle about half of it on board. Turn dough out onto heavily floured area of board. Keep a light coating of flour on dough as you begin to knead.Step 4. Fold dough toward you with your fingers; push away with the heel of your hand. Rotate dough a quarter turn and repeat folding-pushing motion, adding flour to board as you knead. Kneading is finished when dough is nonsticky, smooth and satiny.Step 5. Put dough in greased bowl; turn over to grease top. Cover bow with clear plastic wrap or damp cloth. Let rise in warm place (80 degrees) until doubled (about 1 1/2 hours).

You’re asking for Hecate to guide you at this crossroads in your life, through this transition. Before you set out to the crossroads do a ceremonial clearing with fumigation herbs like mugwort or cedar or rosemary, have a ritual bath and anoint yourself with oil of cypress, or brush yourself down with a soft brush. Then go to a crossroads where three roads come together. You can leave coins for her, or pour a libation of water, milk (you can use any milk, oat milk, etc) - she is also the goddess of childbearing, wine or honey, snake skins for transformation, fish or eggs (for you non-vegan friends), or garlic also works, or onion, you can also leave cakes. Leaving offerings for Hecate on the dark moon (the night before the new moon), in ancient Greece the ritual to Hecate (involving a ceremonial dinner for her) was called a Deipnon. After the dinner your supposed to leave offerings for her at the crossroads where three roads come together, and say,“Torch bearing Hekate, powerful wanderer through realms of night, guide me through this crossroads of my life, lend your wisdom to mine and show me the way. Deliver me to the wisest course of action.
