Episode 56: Coming Out of the Broom Closet

May 27, 2022

We all write, read, and live tarot. Yet, there are people who still discriminate against tarot and paganism is very real. So, today we tell stories about our experiences around this. Melissa wasn’t able to come out until she wrote her first book. Jaymi had friends who refused to acknowledge her growing passion for the cards and her path. And while Hilary grew up in a progressive location, she still felt the eyes of others upon her.

If you can’t come out, stay where you are and know we support you. Your beliefs are yours. We’re here to protect you. We can carry the weight for you. We want you to be safe. 

National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 800-273-8255

St. Louis Pagan Picnic happens on June 4th & 5th. Go see Melissa and have your books or decks signed. Admission is free. 

Books Mentioned:

Silver Ravenwolf - To Ride a Silver Broomstick

Raymond Buckland - Buckland’s Complete Book of Witchcraft (aka the big blue book)

Scott Cunningham - Wicca, a guide for the solitary practitioner
