BTW 54: Entering the Otherworld with Danica Boyce

por Between the Worlds

In this episode we talk with Danica Boyce, creator of the Fairfolk Podcast, about paganism, the otherworld, and folk traditions of abundance.

Tune in as we discuss the difference between Paganism vs. Neo paganism; explore the meaning of earth-centered spirituality; how there IS a continuity of paganism from pre-Christian times; the radical idea that the earth is inherently good; whether or not the otherworld exists, and if it does, how we get there; what we mean when we say "Spirit";  desire as the force that moves us; what's wrong with the theory of evolution; the sacred;  the Pagan holiday of Lunasa; “dark and twisted” monsters who live in caves; how music and poetry creates the world; and how polyphonic music changes our perception of reality. 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. She uses the lens of abundance mindset and conscious embodiment to approach personal liberation and the revival of nourishing and sustainable traditional culture.

BTW 53: 9 of Pentacles – Becoming A Grown Ass Witch with Angela Mary Magick

por Between the Worlds

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 things (and maybe even take PLEASURE in it), and when we’re being called to take up space AND be in community at the same time.

We cover:

How to alert your spirit guides to your presence; how to activate earth energy; how triggers activate our feral cycles; how to deal with changes happening in our bodies; how to deal with controversy and complexity; what to do if someone just doesn’t like you (hint: you don’t need to scamper around trying to prove yourself); how to feed yourself and others and so much more.

Our guest today is a true teacher, mystic and mentor, Angela Mary Magick, to get the prompts from the episode, subscribe to their channels, or find out more about their practice, see below!

We absolutely adore them and we know you will too! Join us!

BTW 52: 8 of Pentacles – Finding Your Flow with Alejandra Alejandra Luisa León, the Lioness Oracle

por Between the Worlds

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 materials and listening to what wants to emerge. 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. She began collaging as a way to process grief, and The Lioness Oracle Tarot was the result. Since then she has hand collaged and published two other decks: The Stars Divine (an Astrology deck) and Vision of the Muse. On top of running her online business, she also gives readings and teaches. She resides in Oakland, California. 

We know you're going to love her as much as we do. Join us!

BTW 51: Spirits of the Land, Spirits of Place with Chiron Armand

por Between the Worlds

Dear Listeners we’re so excited to dive with you into this episode with one of our favorite and dear guests, Chiron Armand. Chiron is is a shamanic practitioner holding initiations in Haitian Vodou, Brazilian Quimbanda, and is a trained hoodoo root doctor in the Southern Conjure tradition. He’s also the author of Deliverance!: Hoodoo Spells of Uncrossing, Healing, and Protection and Clearing Spaces: Inspirational Techniques to Heal Your Home. AND he holds an MA in Performance Studies from New York University and a BA in Ritual Anthropology and Queer Studies from Hampshire College. In short, Chiron is brilliant, thoroughly educated and initiated, and also kind, adorable, and super fun to talk to. We love him so much and know you will too.

Today we’re talking about the Spirits of the Land, and the Spirits of Places. We talk about ancestral relationships to the land and how they show up in your childhood. We talk about techniques for communicating and forming bonds with the spirits of the land, and how to do that even if you’re living in a big city where you feel like any land spirits may be long gone. We discuss how the ocean can heal our relationships, and how the mountains can lead us to deeper integrity and purpose — but that we can’t approach them in an extractive way, wanting something. Instead, we need to approach the spirits of the land in an attitude of romantic reverence.

Stay tuned to find out how.

Questions to ask yourself if you're worried you're failing:

  • by whose standards am I failing?
  • who benefits from my believing myself a failure?
  • who benefits if I love myself more in all my failure? Truly, like which groups of people or beings benefit from your resistance to imposed notions of success?
  • how can you throw your failure back in the face of the status quo, or whomever it is that says that you’re failing? Like truly, what would it look like to thumb your nose?
  • ask yourself, how can I open up a dialogue here, instead of operating on a dominator model?

BTW 50: 7 of Pentacles – Practice More Failure! with guest Flora Pacha

por Between the Worlds

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. We love them and we can’t wait to introduce you! Join us.

BTW 49: 6 of Pentacles – I Gave Her My Heart And She Gave Me A Pen with guest Liz Worth

por Between the Worlds

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; leaky boundaries, how to set clearer ones and defend them; gift societies; obligation; Marcel Mauss; myths and fairytales; how the moon is not a vending machine (hey, hey CA Conrad); what the Cameron Crowe film Say Anything tells us about tarot; how to find TRUE abundance and what to do with it once you've got it... all with our illustrious guest, Liz Worth!

BTW 48: Circe, Goddess of Witches? with guest Nick Dickinson

por Between the Worlds

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 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... Nick Dickinson is Headmistress of Circe Academy through The Cauldron Black in Salem MA, and a professional witch and witchcraft educator with over 35 years of experience working with clients and students in both public and private settings. Ordained and initiated in a variety of tantric yoga traditions (Mahayana Buddhism), and a teacher of yoga teachers and psychics, his classes and workshops are influenced by the intersection of classical yoga theory and modern witchcraft practice. Operating through a multidimensional animist lens with a focus on Greek folklore, Nick’s content welcomes all traditions at all levels and can be approached in a purely secular way.  

NOTE: Don't forget to pre-order the new Taschen book, Witchcraft...

...we mention in the episode edited by Pam Grossman and Jess Hundley. A spellbinding journey through the global history of witchcraft, the third volume in The Library of Esoterica follows this magickal tradition from its ancient roots to its modern incarnations. Through more than 400 artworks, and revelatory essays and interviews with modern practitioners. Amanda's got an essay in it about witches of mythology, and it features many other beloved friends of Between the Worlds, such as Gaby Herstik and Edgar Fabian Frias. You won't want to miss it!

BTW 47: 5 of Pentacles – Real Gods Require Blood with guest Thea Wirsching

por Between the Worlds

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. 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.

  • Rachel Pollack, “78 Degrees of Wisdom.”
  • Zora Neale Hurston, "Their Eyes Were Watching God."

BTW 46: 4 of Pentacles – When to Let Go with guest Liliana Perez

por Between the Worlds

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. As a first generation born xicana indigena her passion is to provide accessible healing and connection to those in her local community as well as the virtual. She uses her strengths as a channel, her knowledge of the Tarot, folk medicine and magic to empower her clients to live their very best life. We love her! Her Passages Oracle Deck is out in September.

BTW 45: Sand Talk with Tyson Yunkaporta

por Between the Worlds

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! Thanks for tuning in!

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

por Between the Worlds

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.

We talk about the history of the suit, deep time, the Orphic Egg, how coins may have made civilization possible (for better or worse), the difference between an amulet and a talisman, why reversed pentagrams are considered "evil", and how to use pentacles of any kind in your magic.

BTW 40: 10 of Swords – Your Fight is Over, with Mary K. Greer

por Between the Worlds

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. Join us!

BTW 39: 9 of Swords – Why Nightmares Are Good For You, with guest Rachel True

por Between the Worlds

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 to someone in my family? The hamster keeps running its wheel. But there's a way out of the torment of this card. We can't wait to show you what it is!

Our guest today is Rachel True, a life-long tarot practitioner and actress whom you’ll know from her starring in the 90s version of The Craft, about a coven of young witches. She was also the lead on the TV show Half & Half, for which she was nominated for an NAACP award. Rachel just came out with a new tarot deck and guidebook called the True Heart Tarot, which we think you will LOVE.  Tune in to hear her deep wisdom on the 9 of Swords and so much more.

BTW 38: 8 of Swords – Find Your Luck Dragon, with guest Liza Fenster

por Between the Worlds

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 habits and patterns than it does with current external circumstances - though it might not be an easy fix, there IS a way to free yourself. In this episode we talk about: epigenetics, the NeverEnding Story, shit jobs, mailbox magic, how to use the 8 of Swords to kick your iPhone addiction, and so much more.

Our guest today is Liza Fenster, of Crow Mother Tarot. She’s a tarot practitioner, intuitive, and an energetic healer and neuromuscular massage therapist with 20 years of extensive spiritual and metaphysical practice and study. We love her Instagram page and her attitude and we can’t wait to introduce you. Stay tuned to find out how to free yourself from that 8 of Swords bondage, and call in the Luck Dragon who will take you to your Southern Oracle. Join us!

BTW 37: The Devil You DON'T Know with guest Michael Ursell

por Between the Worlds

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 discussing the meaning of our favorite foe with Milton scholar Michael Ursell. We discuss the infamous book, "Paradise Lost," and what it teaches us about love and resistance. In the episode you’ll find out why the Devil figure really is scary, but not for the reasons you might think. Tune in!

BTW 36: 7 of Swords – Fight the Power, with guest Jerico Mandybur

por Between the Worlds

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 and a wrong choice,  the Seven of Swords often appears when we having to navigate ambiguity, times when there is no clear answer. If this sounds like your life, you're going to want to tune in.

Our guest today is Jerico Mandybur, author of "Neo Tarot: A fresh approach to self care, healing, and empowerment", and "Daily Oracle: Seek answers from your higher self". She’s also the host of the podcast, Beyond Belief, and was previously the host of the chart-topping Self Service and a weekly guest on Girlboss Radio. As a tarot reader and spiritual coach, Jerico has held court at events hosted by Urban Decay, HBO’s Game of Thrones, BeautyCon, Depop, Soho House, the Chateau Marmont, Neuehouse, The Fullest Magazine, and more. Jerico is deep, and our conversation was juicy, can wait for you to meet her!

35: 6 of Swords – Moving On and Letting Go, with Grace Duong

por Between the Worlds

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 when what you know isn't right for you anymore. But the 6 of Swords card has wisdom for us to make the process a little easier, and maybe even... exciting?

Our guest today is Grace Duong, multidisciplinary artist, author, and creator of Mystic Mondays - Tarot for the Modern Mystic: an intuitive tool for spiritual guidance. It's a colorful deck, full of positive vibes that allow you to access answers for your highest good. Grace brought such a warm hearted and revelatory spirit to the discussion of this card. We can't wait for you to meet her! [See below for her beautiful salt scrub recipe!]

BTW 34: Meeting Your Spirit Guides, with Rhian Lockard of Moonstone Witchery

por Between the Worlds

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 little breather since the Suit of Swords is a challenging one. And our guest today is as sweet and brilliant as can be; she's got a passion for justice and a knack for connecting people with their spiritual essence.

BTW 33: 5 of Swords – Breaking the Curse, with Marcella Kroll

por Between the Worlds

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 what the 5 of Swords teaches us about transforming hurt into healing.

Our guest today is Marcella Kroll an artist, creator, performer, and psychic medium. Her spiritual guidance provides insight, clarity, and healing on core levels to her clients and students.

We love Marcella and we know you will too. Join us!

BTW 32: 4 of Swords – Resting Is Healing, with Brandi Spradling

por Between the Worlds

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 action again very soon and you need all your strength. Tune in to this episode to learn more about the healing powers of this card and what it offers.

Our guest today is Brandi Spradling of Venus in Retro Tarot. She’s a progressive Black Feminist who practices intuitive tarot from a healing perspective. Brandi has a special gift for making the tarot accessible, especially for those who might feel alienated (neurodivergent folks or people who’ve experienced trauma for instance). She’s doing tarot for real people, and is willing to be vulnerable and her own experiences and how she uses tarot to help her through them. We love her and we know you will too!

Quick head’s up, in this episode we do address a few sensitive issues in this episode, such as mental illness and birth trauma, but MOST of the episode is focused on healing. Just wanted to let you know. x

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

por Between the Worlds

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. Sarah Schulman is also on the advisory board of Jewish Voice for Peace, and is  a fellow at the NY Institute for the Humanities at NYU.

BTW 30: 3 of Swords – The Dirt-Work of the Heart, with Jessica Dore

por Between the Worlds

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. She’s got a book on the tarot coming out next year through Viking, and we can’t wait for you to meet her and hear what she has to say about the 3 of Swords.

BTW 29: 2 of Swords – Making Difficult Choices, with Chiron Armand

por Between the Worlds

In the 2 of Swords, a woman has to make a big decision without having all the information she needs. She's paralyzed by the thought she might make the wrong choice, and so she waits. The wisdom of this card teaches us how to move forward even when we feel caught in indecision. We could be deciding where to live; whether to break up or hook up; which next project to begin; or where we should focus our energy. No matter what we're deciding about, this card has some potent medicine for us.

Our special guest today is Chiron Armand, a shamanic practitioner with initiations in Haitian Vodou (Houngan Asogwe) and Brazilian Quimbanda (com licensa). He is a trained hoodoo root doctor in the Southern Conjure tradition and is the author of "Deliverance!: Hoodoo Spells of Uncrossing, Healing, and Protection and Clearing Spaces: Inspirational Techniques to Heal Your Home." We can't wait for you to meet him. Come join us, between the worlds!

BTW 27: 10 of Wands – Unburden Yourself with adrienne maree brown

por Between the Worlds

Join us for our season finale with superstar special guest, writer and activist adrienne maree brown! We talk about her favorite decks, the pleasures of tarot, the power of witchcraft, and the truth about the 10 of Wands. Usually the 10 of Wands appears when you're feeling burdened, overwhelmed, and when you can't see a way out of the trouble. In the Thoth deck, the 10 of Wands is known as "Oppression" but in this episode we spin that meaning on its head using the wisdom of Octavia Butler. Oppression always implies resistance, and what if your tactic for resistance is... pleasure? Tune in to find out!

*Amanda's Family Vulva Goddess / Teddy Bear / Overthrowing Patriarchy Bread Recipe *

(Otherwise Known As "Cinnamon Swirl Loaf")

Basic Bread Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup warm water (about 110 degrees)
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 2 Cups warm milk or vegan milk of your choice (about 110 degrees)
  • 2 Tablespoons butter or vegan butter of your choice, melted and cooled
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 6 to 6 1/2 Cups all-purpose flour

Cinnamon Swirl Section Ingredients

  • 4 Tablespoons sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons ground cinnamon

Face and Buttons Ingredients

  • Raisins or walnuts, cloves, candied ginger, etc.

Step 1. 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). Test by inserting two fingers into dough--if indentations remain, dough is ready to shape.

Step 6. After dough has risen, punch it down to release air bubbles, then turn dough out onto a lightly floured board. Knead dough briefly and shape into smooth oval.

Step 7. Divide dough in half by grasping dough in center and squeezing.

Step 8. Roll out each half into a rectangle about 6 by 16 inches. Mix together cinnamon and sugar for swirl. Sprinkle half of mixture evenly over each rectangle. Beginning with the narrow side, roll each half tightly into a loaf. Seal ends and seam by pinching with your fingers

Step 9. Let rise, covered, on greased cookie sheet for half an hour. Cut one half into half again and, of the two quarters, cut one into six pieces for legs, arms and ears of the goddess / teddy bear / patriarch. Cut a small piece off of the large (undivided half) and use for  boobs / snout / penis. That is, the large half is the body, the quarter is the head, the six pieces are shaped to form arms and legs and the small piece is for the   boobs / snout / penis. Pinch pieces together, cover, and let rise another 15 to 20 minutes. Place raisins or walnuts for eyes or pierce the patriarch with cloves.

Step 10. Bake in 375 degree oven for about 35 minutes or until loaves are nicely browned and sound hollow when tapped. Remove from oven and turn loaves onto racks to cool.

BTW 24: 9 of Wands – Tapping Into Source with Leah Garza

por Between the Worlds

How do you keep going when you're exhausted and over it, when you feel like no matter what you build, something just comes along to knock it down again? The 9 of Wands is the feeling that comes when you feel like you've been struggling forever and you just don't know if you can take one more blow. The good news is, the 9 of Wands also offers some wisdom on how you can reconnect with your power source, feel rejuvenated, and remember why you started this journey in the first place. In today's episode of Between the Worlds we discuss all of this with activist, Akashic records reader, and decolonial scholar Leah Garza. For those of you who need a little encouragement, this is a good episode to tune in!

9/2/20 5pm PST - FULL MOON IN PISCES CEREMONY: DIVINATION AND INTUITION - By Donation

Full Moons can be the best time for divination because they are the times when the voice of Spirit comes through the strongest. We might think of it as spiritual high tide. This Full Moon Ceremony we will be: focusing on the Piscean practice of water scrying, connecting to our intuition, and discussing the relationship between creative, boundless Pisces and focused, precise Virgo; figuring out what is this season asking of us and how can we show up for it. NOTE: This is Amanda's personal ritual. Please direct questions to guardian@oracleoflosangeles.com (not Between the Worlds) - Click here to register.

BTW 23: 8 of Wands – Focusing Your Attention with T. Susan Chang

por Between the Worlds

The 8 of Wands appears when it is necessary to focus our attention and act fast. The time for waiting is over. We receive an important message and we need to act on it. Join us this episode when we talk with Harvard educated T. Susan Chang, author of Tarot Correspondences, who literally knows everything there is to know about the tarot. We talk about this card's astrological correspondence: the upbeat Mercury in Sagittarius (expansion of communication), but how that's not always a good thing (gossip, overexposure). We talk about ways to organize your tarot studies to get the most out of them, and simple ways to use this card to aid you in your travels. You won't want to miss this episode!
