We are a couple of bestie witches making a tarot deck from our love of the magic of the High Desert.

    Strength Card Storytime with Rev. Lindsey Turner

    Strength Card Storytime with Rev. Lindsey Turner

    TTW we were delighted to talk with our special guest friend Rev. Lindsey Turner about the Strength-card themes of the radical, nonbinary Christian figure of Thecla, and finding strength in the high desert. Leigh Ann shares the solo road trip story behind the High Desert Tarot Strength image and Áine recounts her first surfing lesson after pulling a card for this episode. 

    Note: if you haven't heard the term "AFAB" before, it refers to "assigned feminine at birth." Also, #sorrynotsorry we can't stop saying, "love that journey for you." It's because we're obsessed with Alexis Rose, from Schitt's Creek.

    Check out Lindsey's offerings as a nonbinary astrologer & pastor @bad.pastor and on Patreon!

    Here's your link to our Strength Card Playlist.

    Featuring original music from our hilarious & multi-talented friend Erin McMullin.

    Episode #2: Getting Free with the Three of Swords

    Episode #2: Getting Free with the Three of Swords

    Shit gets real in this heart to heart between Leigh Ann & Áine on the Three of Swords, which brings us in touch with personal & collective heartbreak and how to free ourselves from toxic ties with healing, forgiveness, and a little magic, of course. Our love letter to survivors, which, after the year we've had, includes all of us.

    Featuring original music by our beautiful friend Erin McMullin.

    In this episode we mention & wholeheartedly recommend:


    This tarot card holder on Etsy
    Michelle Tea’s Modern Tarot if you’re looking for a tarot guidebook or a ritual to enact in honor of any card
    Cutting the Cord zine by Marcella Kroll
    The decks Our Tarot by Sarah Shipman & The Wild Unknown Tarot by Kim Krans
    The RobCast by Rob Bell
    Between the Worlds podcast with Amanda Yates Garcia
    Magical bodywork from Toni at Kauai Healing Journeys
    Áine’s favorite Fool Playlist of comedy bits by BIPOC & femmes

    Also, P.S. Áine made kind of an abrupt shift from saying that we live on stolen land (we're on Tewa land here in the high desert; how about you?) to unpacking some of the beauty she finds in the symbolism of Christian iconography, but in no way meant to imply that colonialism is beautiful. Sorry about that! :/
