    Walking an Alchemical Path with Sister Temperance Tarot

    Walking an Alchemical Path with Sister Temperance Tarot

    Angeliska Polacheck (they/she) of Sister Temperance Tarot, is an Austin, Texas based writer, healer, and professional tarot reader. Devoted to helping seekers find their path, they utilize the tarot in a compassionate and trauma-informed combination of visionary mystic counseling and energy work. Angeliska has been working with the tarot for over 30 years now, and has been reading for clients professionally since 1999. Their dedication and genuine passion for creating joyful and intriguing connections has led to acclaim and recognition from the Chronicle's Best of Austin Awards as Austin's Best Tarot Reader/Psychic for the past eight years running.

    IN THIS CONVERSATION Angeliska shares a bit about their incredibly eclectic spiritual upbringing which combined Celtic, Slavic, Jewish, and Romani influences, among others. We also discuss the important distinction between the practice of divination and the act of prediction, the all too often overlooked history of the Romani people within the overall story of the tarot, and the complicated way Jewish mysticism has been mis-applied within western esotericism.

    Quarterly Questions: Divination as Resistance

    Quarterly Questions: Divination as Resistance

    Who told you not to tell the future? How might the act of divination be a form of resistance to the capitalistic/colonialist construction of time? IN TODAY'S CONVERSATION Angie and I are falling deep down the time rabbit hole that was opened during our recent interview with Jonathan Koe. Is it really possible to offer a "collective reading?" How can we use Tarot to subvert the linear idea of time? What changes when gender changes from a noun to verb?

    The Stories We Dream of with Tara Rin Burke

    The Stories We Dream of with Tara Rin Burke

    Tara Rin Burke is a biracial non-binary Japanese Mystic who leans deeply into the wisdom of elemental magick and metaphor to connect.
    They are claircognizant, clairsentient, and clairaudient, and enter into relationship with these gifts through a lense of neuro-divergence and recognizing that so much of the way they live their life travels across timelines. Tara roots their personal folklore and mythological senses through seasonal folklore rooted in both Gaelic and Shinto based cosmologies where they track ancestral veneration, lineage tracking, and understanding the complexity, nuance and particularities of being of Irish, Slovak and Japanese descent.
    A forever student of practical magick making magick accessible regardless of entry point & introduction, Tara roots their studies within the framework of animist studies which in earlier years were guided largely in part by Laura Blakeman and Aquarian Witch Connie Bender. They have felt continued wisdom teachings and offerings on de-centering the white-centric spirituality complex and honoring earth-magick and wisdom dreams honored by BIPOC folks across the Diaspora, through listening and being in appreciation of the impact of the mystical throughout culture and across time.
    They deeply credit the work of Octavia Butler, Audre Lorde, Jewelle Gomez, Mary Oliver, Grace Lee Boggs, and Ursula K. Le Guin, as offering them a way to see worlds beyond the ones we’re living in, and to see new futures through their knowing that something exists beyond our scope of current lived realities. Their deeper understandings of time-travel comes from their love of science fiction and the imaginal landscapes of Anime, ASMR, collective organizing spaces, and understanding the pathways of dreams. Tara believes deeply in the body’s wisdom to hold informational coordinates for who we are and who we are becoming.
    TO WORK WITH TARA: find them through Instagram, their Patreon Hearth, and their website which, as a neuroemergent witch, is in the process of transmutation.
    RESOURCES SHARED BY TARA IN THIS EPISODE: Jade T. Perry; Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes and the book "Women Who Run with the Wolves;" David Whyte and the poem "Turn Sideways Into Light;" "Tales of Japan: Traditional Stories of Monsters and Magic;" "The Book of Yokai: Mysterious Creatures of Japanese Folklore;" "Irish Witchcraft from an Irish Witch: True to the Heart"

    Quarterly Questions: Fetishizing Healership

    Many people today call themselves healers, but what does this job title actually entail?
