Magical cauldrons, sacred stones, bewitched swords, well maidens, bleeding spears, such are the things of Arthurian legend. Tune in today as we discuss the ancestral magic of the ancient Celts with expert and Western Mystery Tradition initiate Mara Freeman. We talk about the grail myth as a prophecy for contemporary environmental collapse; poets as prophets; the meaning of the knights; and the suits of the tarot and their relationship to "the four hallows"; the four sacred objects of the Tuatha Dé Danann, the fairy people of pre-Christian Ireland. This is a super magical episode that really helps expand the mythological knowledge of your tarot practice. Join us!
