Real Talk Tarot

In this episode, we start off by talking about the truly WILD Mercury Retrograde everyone is experiencing then a secondary banter sneaks in after our first question, so gird your loins because we have *thoughts* about reality TV shows! Our first question of the episode asks follow up questions to a reading we did a few months ago (last year? pandemic time is weird) and our second question asks about some ideas of what to do for a card of the day that isn't predictive in nature. 

Our deck of the episode is a fresh take on tarot in a modern surrealist lens, Real Talk Tarot, by Juanita Londoño Gaviria

Tyldwick Tarot

Because of a re-scheduling, Esther and Holly are a bit punch drunk this episode so prepare yourselves! Our first question of the episode is our querent asking about adult friendships and our second question asks about previous comments we've made about the religion of Wicca.

Our deck of the episode is the pinnacle autumnal secret garden deck, Tyldwick Tarot by the late Neil Lovell of Malpertuis whose legacy is being carried on by his brother, Joe. We absolutely love and adore everything from this creator and this is reflected in our abundance of fangirling over the deck.

Arcana of Astrology Oracle

Happy Publishing Birthday, Arcana of Astrology! For our first official episode back we thought it was perfect timing to review the OG astrology deck that started it all. But before we get to that, we answer a listener question about whether to focus on a romantic relationship right now or cultivating deeper friendship with people currently in their lives and a question about how a different  listener can help their brother after a devastating break up.

Our deck of the episode is Deviant Moon Tarot by by Patrick Valenza. We talk about the origins of the deck, the creation process, and our favorite bit of trivia about the deck that we included in our book! You can find all of Valenza's Deviant Moon citizens and more on their website!

Thoth Tarot

Welcome to Wildly Tarot Summer Camp!!

Well it's finally here, the much anticipated episode where we review Thoth tarot. However, we start this episode like every other summer camp episode by doing a longer reading. As a surprise to probably no one we decided to forego the Celtic Cross spread for the week and use the Spread Machines Oracle deck by Fablesden which ended up being the best idea ever!! 

Then we dive into Thoth Tarot by Lady Freida Harris and Aleister Crowley! It's been a deck we've avoided reviewing because of the legacy of Crowley being a garbage person, (We mentioned Last Podcast on the Left's episodes about Crowely and you can find them here: Episode 1 Episode 2 ) but as we wrote the chapter for our book, "The History of Tarot Art" we discovered the story of the artist, Lady Freida, and fell in love with Thoth. So join us for some Crowley ranting and fangirling over Lady Freida.

Intro to Oracle Decks

Welcome to Wildly Tarot Summer Camp!!

In this episode we deep dive into the origins of divination and talk about how that branched off into modern day oracle decks!

Sola Busca

Welcome to Wildly Tarot Summer Camp!!

Per usual with our summer camp episodes, we begin by using the Celtic Cross spread to answer a question from Jenna, but per usual we went with a bit of a modified version from Theresa Reed's book, "Tarot: No Questions Asked." since we felt her version was a bit more suited to our needs. We also talk about one of our favorite decks and chapters in our book, Sola Busca Tarot!  So dive right into this summer camp fest with us and let's go waaaay back and hang out with a bunch of esoteric nerds for awhile.
