2020 Reflections with Saltwater Stars
Welcome to another episode of The Queer Witch Podcast. In this episode, Anna Joy sat down with Ari Felix of Saltwater Stars for another end of the year conversation and imagining.
Interview with Ari Felix: 17:55
But first, upon reviewing their interview Anna Joy is reminded of an eerie foreshadowing of the attempted coup on the Senate, so they take some time at the beginning of the episode to respond to the event and contextualize it within the Saturn/Jupiter conjunction in Aquarius.

November 2020 Collective Tarot Reading
Watch the video version here: https://youtu.be/MUjnVYkE_rU
We are living through a groundbreaking time and I think we can all agree this moment is pretty dark. So many of us are coming to reckon with our true limitations, histories and the way that white supremacy has been living unchecked inside our homes, in our relationships and in our most personal moments. This is not comfortable, so I’ve come to offer messages of comfort and peace.
I felt extremely called on Friday morning to channel a message building off what was shared in my stories yesterday: Right now, we have the opportunity to trust and have faith that this is a Universe based in justice, healing and pleasure.
Some of the messages that came through:
-The invitation to confront our collective shame around optimism and hope
-Realizing that we are still living, that our souls live on, and that we have choices left to make on this planet. It’s not over.
-What happens when we make our decisions with an assumption that humans are lovable and that the Earth cannot be controlled?
-Healing from our 400 year period of injustice, forced control and codependency otherwise known as colonialism
I offer these messages as an antidote to the shame, polarized thought and bigotry we see so commonly on this and all social media platforms. These messages are intended to comfort, empower and clarify so that we can continue building something better in the place that the Empire fell.

You are doing really important work!! ❤️❤️❤️
Essential, important resource for queer witches
This is the podcast I’ve been looking for - thank you so much for this resource. It took me 25 years to realize I’m a queer witch with psychic and empathic abilities that are strengths, not shortcomings to be suppressed in this dominant materialist culture. Every ep has its own unique and helpful insights and I’ve learned so much from Anna.
