    The Truth about Helpers {& how to find a good one}

    The Truth about Helpers {& how to find a good one}

    This week on The Tarot Diagnosis, we tread *semi* carefully into the murky waters of how to find a good helper, or support person, in your life. So much of our work on this podcast is about helping people empower themselves, but we know that sometime that’s just not enough and it’s time to seek outside help. The problem is, how do you know who you can trust?

    Luna and and Shannon speak some hard truths on this one, and offer advice on how to find the right person for you… and how to know when to run far away. We go though all the red flags - and the green ones - to help you make the right choice.

    Seven of Wands, Eight of Swords, Two of Cups, Two of Swords, and of course, The Hierophant all work their way into the conversation, along with an honest look at the problem with the current trend of making shadow work too sexy.

    Also worth noting - at the end of the episode we highlight a recent IG live from Malakhim_Tarot called “False Prophets” that is very much worth checking out. If you don’t already follow Nick, it’s worth doing.

    Stressed Out {Hacks for Uncertain Times}

    Stressed Out {Hacks for Uncertain Times}

    This week on a slightly abbreviated episode of The Tarot Diagnosis, we tackle a topic on lots of people’s minds right now: Stress. Join us for another half serious, half hilarious conversation about what leads to stress, the different types (nerd talk) and most importantly, what the hell we can actually do about managing it. We also answer questions directly from listeners about how to manage stress in their own lives, avoid absorbing other people’s stress, and pull cards for a custom spread we wrote just for this topic and episode (sneak peek- you’ll hear some therapist tips and learn what Luna and Shannon do in their own practices to keep healthy boundaries). 

    Grab your deck and get ready to pull cards along with us as we go toe-to-toe with this issue that, frankly, all of us are facing in one way of or another right now.

    And we want to say a HUGE thank you to the many of you who have already visited our new shop at www.TheTarotDiagnosis.com. We are so overwhelmed and grateful for your support, and for all the amazing feedback we have been getting! Thank you!

    Dishes, Sex, & Money

    Dishes, Sex, & Money

    This week we tackle the dishes, talk about sex, and explore conflict with money - all through the lens of couples therapy and romantic relationships. Luna and Shannon have found in their therapy practices that the majority of conflict couples experience manifests as "dishes, sex, and money" - but, spoiler alert: it's never actually about the dishes, the sex, or the money.

    Join us as we pull cards, talk theory, and tell you exactly what you should and should not do in your relationships if you want them to survive.

    In this episode we explore:

    The Meaning of Life {and why we avoid it}

    The Meaning of Life {and why we avoid it}

    We decided to keep it light this week on The Tarot Diagnosis and chat about death, existential dread, and fear of nonbeing.
    Actually, for real, though - this was a really fun conversation and it’s one well worth listening to. Because, let's face it, we all have to deal with it.
    And as much as it seems heavy, so much of our work as therapists, and so much of our practice in working with tarot, comes down to the very core issue of searching for meaning. What we discovered in this conversation is that this is both a very simple and a very complicated thing to do.

    Join us as we pull some cards, talk some theory (heads up- Luna geeks out on her very favorite therapeutic framework of all time and Shannon talks a lot about Freud and "a poet"). There is also some interesting and comforting hilarity in a few spots where Shannon battles with a lawnmower.

    Tarot and Typology {How Neurotic Are You?}

    Tarot and Typology {How Neurotic Are You?}

    Originally the name of this week’s episode was “You’re Neurotic, Not Crazy." The other open is “What’s Your Type”- both are a good fit because this week on The Tarot Diagnosis we get real about the labels we like to claim and the types we want to be.

    In clinical psychotherapy, we like to be able to give names to people’s experiences and ways of being in the world. But, really - doesn’t everyone? Don’t we all take the time to take some ridicules Buzzfeed quiz to tell us what type of pizza topping we are? Or which Hogwarts house we should be sorted into? We love to have labels and identifiers that describe us and we like it when other people do too. It's like having a fun secret code that we think will demystify ourselves and our relationships.

    And, it does… sort of.

    From Myers-Briggs, The Big 5, Enneagram, Holland Codes, and more- we talk about all the ways we have tried to classify personality.  And, of course, we do this all through an examination of the tarot- pulling in seemingly all of the court cards this week. We go into how mental health’s habit of rebranding all its lingo every ten years or so. We have a great conversation about the wonderful paradoxes of being a human and how tarot let’s us explore this more deeply.

    Do You Trust Me? {and what to do if you don't}

    Do You Trust Me? {and what to do if you don't}

    This week on The Tarot Diagnosis, Luna and Shannon venture into the harrowing and complex landscape of trust.

    How do we know when to give it, what do we do once it’s been broken, and how much of this is really about our own expectations? Clearly, it’s a complicated topic. But, that’s what we love to do - get into the weeds with the complicated stuff and see how Tarot can offer us a lens to better understand our own experience of trust.

    From Three of Swords to The High Priestess, and from Freudian developmental stages, to the idea of financial infidelity - we cover a ton of ground; including how to learn to better edit trust in all of our relationships in order to have realistic expectations and clearer boundaries.

    In the end, when it comes to trust it seems to come down to what renowned pediatrician and author Dr. Spock said, "Trust yourself, you know more than you think you do."

Enchantedly encouraging

I really love the themes and outlook that their episodes bring up. They bring up great conversations and different ways of thinking to have toward every day life with a lot of spirituality. I personally lack that spirituality (maybe even desire for it) and this podcast has really brought that positively into my life while also being helpful on mental health. This podcast has really been uplifting and knowledgeable. The way Shannon and Luna bounce ideas off of each other even if different opinions is like hanging out with two healthy and caring friends. It’s a breath of fresh air compared to the daily mundane small talk. It’s encourages you to check in with yourself and even others healthily. There’s tons of moments where I pause the episode and have to quickly text my significant other to include into their conversation. In which then, we bounce even more opinions and examples to the episode subjects. Absolutely wonderful and I’m excited for more to follow!

Absolutely brilliant!

These ladies do an amazing job combining tarot with psychotherapy! They have a keen skill that enables them to see more than just what the tarot cards tell them, but also deeper and more meaningful perspectives from their experience in the therapy world. I have been able to relate in someway to every single episode thus far, taking from it a powerful message that is so... deep, however, Episode 9 speaks volumes to me. Every.single.word. If I didn’t know any better, I’d be convinced they did an entire podcast on my life.
