Episode 25: Into the Mystic (Part 2)

In part two of the mystical exploration, we go back to early divination when games and old-time knowledge were commonplace tools. Folklore, magic, and divination go hand in hand and can teach us so many skills. We cover grade school games of cootie-catchers and M.A.S.H, spirit boards, pendulums, and runes. This episode shows you that nothing is sacred and everything can become a divination tool if you have the desire for it.

Hilary recommends you go to Pandora Witch for spirit boards: https://pandorawitch.shop/collections/fiendies-ouija-boards

Jaymi found a free cootie-catcher download, so you make your own: https://www.quia.com/files/quia/users/rainstormrainbow/cootiecatcher.jpg

Melissa wants you to know if you have depression, you can find help! Call 1-800-273-8255 and talk to a friendly voice.

Episode 24: Come Sit At Our Tarot Table

Welcome to 2021, everyone! One of our seven listeners asked us: 

“Is there room in the "cardslingers posse" for someone who loves the cards but doesn't want to read professionally (or for other people, period)? I love everything about cards - tarot or oracle - but have no desire to read as a business. However, I'd like to meet and mingle with others who take the cards as seriously as I do. Would I be welcome as a non-reader in the online community or at conferences if I don't have the same end-goal as professional readers?”

Yes, listeners, we welcome you to our posse. Everyone is free to gather at the tarot table. No matter what your interest level in cartomancy is. We round out this episode by discussing our reasons for gathering, stories about what goes on in conferences, and give tips for convention survival.

Episode 23: Fire That Freaker

Happy Holidays, listeners! For the end of our first year’s episodes, we go through and teach you how to fire clients. There is NO such thing as a tarot emergency. Set up your business to succeed by doing things like pre-screen. Craft a good ethics page, so your clients know exactly what is expected of them, and you, while you read.

Episode 22: The Chariot: Getting It Done

Melissa, Hilary, and Jaymi continue their thoughts on the cards by talking about The Chariot. It takes imagination, drive, and flare to chase your dreams. Listen as they discuss and compare meanings and share favorite deck images from four decks.

We also highly recommend you buy The Tarot Coloring Book by Theresa Reed. You learn so much about the cards when you color in all the details. Find it at your local metaphysical, or bookstore through IndieBound.

Episode 21: Dealing with Hard Readings

Sometimes readings aren’t all shiny and happy. Sometimes, the reading gets deep and unexpected. In these hard readings, tarot readers have an even more important job than tossing cards onto a table. We hold space, really listen to our clients and give them time to speak, and bear witness to their journey.
