    The History of Tarot

    The History of Tarot

    Welcome everyone to the very first episode of The Aquarean Podcast. I wanted to begin this series on Tarot with questions I believe most of us have: 1) Where does Tarot come from and 2) Does Tarot really work? I hope this walkthrough of Tarot's history both enlightens and empowers you.  Feel free to visit my website to join my mailing list or book reading. You can, also, explore more about Tarot history with the references listed below. 

    If you're enjoying the series, please consider leaving a rating and comment. It helps to spread the magic. And don't forget to follow!

    I hope you tune into the next episode where I break down the primary patterns involved in reading Tarot. Infinite love to you all and blessed be.

    How to Read Tarot - The Basics

    How to Read Tarot - The Basics

    Welcome to the second episode of The Aquarean podcast. The last episode explored the history of Tarot, where it came from, and how we use it today. Now, we begin to learn how Tarot works. When inspired to read Tarot, most of us jump straight into memorizing the definitions (myself included), but that generally causes more confusion. We could find ourselves quitting after just a couple of months. If we approach Tarot as a multi-layered system, it makes the process of learning easier. First, we need to establish Tarot's inherent patterns. In this episode, we'll learn these basic foundational cues that our intuition needs to build the language for Tarot.

    How to Read Tarot - The Elements and the Numbers

    How to Read Tarot - The Elements and the Numbers

    Welcome to The Aquarean Podcast where we explore everything magical. Continuing our journey through Tarot, this week's episode looks into the element that provides the energy to each suit (Fire, Water, Air, and Earth) and different ways to decipher the numbers. I've found that only memorizing the cards weakens your intuitive muscle, so practicing patterns first gives our intuition the strength it needs to communicate alongside the varied definitions.

    Season 1 - Tarot

    Season 1 - Tarot

    Hello everyone and welcome to The Aquarean Podcast. I'm Vanessa, a psychic, tarot reader, astrology and occult enthusiast, and your host as we travel through everything mystical and magical. I created this podcast to weave the many stories and experiences around our most popular mysteries, from their place of origin to their modern expression. It's obvious to me that humans need their natural connection to magic now more than ever and I'm excited to offer what I've learned along with fascinating and eye-opening interviews from experts and practitioners from all over the world. I hope to foster a deep understanding of where we come from and how we can express our own intrinsic and ancestral magic today.

    These esoteric topics are so vast and their practices so personal it would be impossible and utterly confusing to address every mystery without some organization. Therefore, I've decided to create multiple series that focuses on a different topic moving backward in time so that we fully explore and digest each of them one by one. Our first topic will be the tarot, a fairly new, but widely adored practice of divination and soul searching. In the first episode, I will convey the history of the tarot, how it came to be and how we use it today, followed by episodes that teach you how to read the cards (so if you have a tarot deck that you haven't used since you bought it, get ready to pull it out). Once we've covered the tarot in practice, we'll move on to exciting interviews with tarot readers and tarot deck creators. I've personally studied the tarot for over 20 years and have been a professional tarot reader for about 6 years, so this topic is very close to my heart. Near the end of each series, I will announce the next topic so we can collectively prepare for each magical road ahead.

    This podcast will be available every Wednesday at 2:00pm EST beginning November 2, 2022. Please be aware, The Aquarean is not on ANY social media platform, no Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, Twitter, or Youtube, so if you enjoy this podcast, please subscribe and share the magic. If you'd like additional information or reading lists, please check the bio section of every episode. If you want to know more about me, the idea behind The Aquarean, or my many offerings, feel free to visit my website at www.theaquarean.com. I'm so excited to share this important and fascinating journey with all of you as we weave together the story of magic. As above, so below, blessed be.

Eloquent. Articulate. Informed. Inspiring!

Vanessa is so eloquent, articulate, informed, and inspiring! Her passion and education on the topic is evident within a few minutes of listening to any episode. I am ecstatic to have found this resource within a week of buying my first tarot deck. Honestly, many explanations and introductory youtube videos had me feeling a little lost and questioning if this was really what I had hoped, as a lot of the content is trite and surface level. I have reignited my excitement upon finding her multi-faceted and well-spoken delivery which resonates so deeply with me and my goals with this ancient craft. Thank you, Vanessa!!! -MB
