    BTW 60: Knight of Pentacles – Let Your Pleasure Guide You

    BTW 60: Knight of Pentacles – Let Your Pleasure Guide You

    One of the most common questions for tarot readers is about how people can find ways to make a living doing what they love. In this episode, we talk about how the Knight of Pentacles attempts to answer that question, and get to some ecology and mythology along the way. We discuss the Bee Goddesses of ancient Crete, pollinators, the Great Plains buffalo, astrological correspondences, and where the bulls and the bees meet in the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice.

    This episode is dedicated to Amanda's kitty familiar, Pagan, who passed from this world in the early hours of January 12th, and all the listeners who have recently lost their loved ones. We send out our gratitude to all the Between the Worlds listeners who have offered their support and care, with special thanks to Nick Mattos and the Shift Network who generously sponsored a grove of 11 trees in the Superior National Forest in Pagan's honor. We dedicate the grove to all who are missing their loved ones right now.

    BTW 59: What to Expect in the Lovers Year

    BTW 59: What to Expect in the Lovers Year

    Today on Between the Worlds we discuss the transition from the Hierophant year to the Lovers year. What it means for you, and what it means for the world. Tune in to find out how 2021 deepened our understanding of lineages and ancestry in recognition of the more-than-human world; and how the Hierophant called us all to become students and masters. We discuss the concept of the daimon as an intermediary between the human and more-than-human realms, and how that may have impacted us collectively and personally. Finally, we take a deep dive into the Lovers year, anticipating likely themes relating to love, relationships, independence, interdependence, individualism, decoloniality, what we need to compost, and what the Lovers year is calling out for each of us to practice.

    Come walk with us in the open winds, and talk with us like the Lovers do!

    BTW 58: Page of Pentacles – Finding Your Purpose

    BTW 58: Page of Pentacles – Finding Your Purpose

    Welcome to our first episode on the court cards! The Page of Pentacles teaches us how to find our gifts, and more importantly, how to enjoy them! Court cards are our most requested cards, because they’re so puzzling. Court cards can teach us about the masks that we wear and the personas or roles that we take on. They can indicate personality types. They can also help us understand where we are in our processes of transformation. The Page of Pentacles is the Child of Wisdom. They are practicing becoming secure in a world that is inherently unstable and constantly changing. The person in this card is GIFTED, and their task, and your task (if this card comes up for you) is to figure out how to share that gift with the world. Tune in to this episode for a discussion on how to recognize your gifts, what gifts are, medieval roles and what they have to do with us now, magical stones, astrological correspondences, Vikings, the Princess of the Echoing Hills, mitochondrial eve, and where you need to go to call in the power of the Rose of the Palace of the Earth.

Just gets better and better

I’ve been listening since the beginning, and every season seems to go a little deeper. I’m loving the extended mythological journeys, particularly, and find that it’s enriching my personal practice so much. Each episode is so lovingly researched, and the music is so so gorgeous and adds so much. Thank you both for this beautiful offering!

EP. 70

I am a huge fan of this podcast,
I have listened to each episode, I am slowly catching up to the present here but I am currently listening to the Adrienne Maree Brown episode and their words are just so inspiring and they are so articulate and wise and that’s how I feel about the podcast in general, I started listening when I was going through a really tough time and this podcast has offered nothing but excellent wisdom, spiritual guidance, comfort, and knowledge that I have found incredibly valuable in these strange and difficult times.
