Pentacles are about solutions, and this card is all about dealing with the enormity, sensuality, eroticism, ripeness, and the full glory of our presence. So says our special guest today, the grown ass witch, Angela Mary Magick. This card appears when we’re ready to admit wild truths about ourselves, when we need to get big enough to hold the pointy…
 
Today we’re talking about the 8 of Pentacles, all about mastering your craft and makin’ those coins. 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. You’re not checking to see what other people are doing or if you’re getting it right. You’re paying attention to the mater…

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; h…
 
Many tarotologists say the 6 of Pentacles is one of the most complicated cards in the Minor Arcana. It's a card about exchange, giving and receiving, but as we know all too well, that shizz can bring up a lot for people! In this episode we talk about knowing your value (and how if you're over giving, you probably don't); guilt and being of service;…
 
Circe is the first witch mentioned in the literature of the classical world. Daughter of the Sun, and the ocean nymph Perse, Circe is the Lady of the Beasts, wielder of wands, knower of plants, both poisonous and medicinal, and is queer AF. She's a goddess of secrets and necromancy (she can communicate with the dead). Her familiar is the hawk, so i…

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 t…
 
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…

The 3 of Pentacles is an invitation and a reminder to create spaces that are a celebration of what you hold sacred in life and attending to the details of maintaining them. When the 3 of Pentacles comes up, we know that we are being directed to get quiet and recognize what is sacred TO US, in our own hearts, and then we are being called to build it…
 
The 2 of Pentacles is all about being able to handle, and even enjoy (gasp!) complexity. In this episode, Amanda breaks down the card and discusses the history of jugglers, shaman, and court jesters; the infinity symbol; Jupiter in Capricorn; how to make multi-tasking work for you (and if we're anti-capitalist should we even be doing that?)... and …
 
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 th…
 
Between the Worlds returns with Season 4! Today we’re talking about the ACE of Pentacles. The Ace represents the suit in its purest form. Pentacles represents the element of earth.

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…
 
The 9 of Swords is often known as "the nightmare card”, referring to the things that wake you up in the night and keep you tossing and turning. You might be obsessing, like: Did I do something wrong? How could this person do this thing to me? What if I never become economically stable? What if I never find love? What if something horrible happens t…
 
The 8 of Swords appears when we WANT to do something, but sh*t keeps getting in our way. In this card we can see that the person in the image has forgotten her power, it’s almost like she believes so strongly that she is a prisoner that she no longer even tries to escape. When this card comes up, the rut you’re in usually has more to do with old ha…
 
Rebel, demon, adversary, bringer of light, the Devil appears in all these guises and more. The Devil card often points to our fatal flaw, the wound that is standing in our way, preventing us from getting the thing we really want. One especially delicious tool we can use to help deepen our knowledge of the Devil card is literature. Today we’re discu…
 
When I think of the 7 of Swords the first thing I think of is that you’re getting away with something. Now, that could be a good thing or bad thing, depending on the circumstances. Often this card indicates solving a problem without direct confrontation. As much as we might WANT there to be a black and white solution to our problems, a right choice…
 
When I think of the 6 of Swords the first thing I think of is that you’re leaving something behind, it might be a relationship, a job, a house, or an old pattern, habit or belief system. In this card, the Tarot is cautioning you not to bring your old problems with you into new territories. It's not always easy to leave behind what you know, even wh…
 
In this episode we talk about spirit guides, how to work with them, what they are, whether or not they're "real", and basically everything you could think of that is spirit guide related. We learn how they can help you find your path, trust your intuition, and make difficult choices. This episode is light-hearted and fun! We thought you'd need a li…
 
When I think of the 5 of Swords, I think about conflict. Someone is hurt, another someone is feeling bitter and resentful, someone else is on a vindictive rampage. But of course, since tarot is a wisdom tradition, it’s not just going to leave us there in harm’s way like that. It’s got medicine for us, it’s got some strategies, tune in to find out w…
 
When nothing feels stable, how do you find stability? After the heartbreak of the 3 of Swords, the 4 of Swords reminds us that we’re entering a recovery period. When this card appears, it’s time to lay down your weapons. Get some rest. It’s okay to retreat a little and regroup. It’s in the dark of the earth that we restore and heal. You will take a…
