Archetypes of the Masculine & Feminine

September 15, 2018
It’s tempting to assign gender to the Archetypes of Masculine & Feminine but this is often a folly because no matter what you outwardly identify with the most we all have qualities of the Masculine and Feminine or as Carl Jung puts it the Anima and Animus.  
 
This topic is ginormous but Cyndera and Julienne focus on how these archetypes show up in the major arcana.  Julienne parses out several sets based on themes of how the archetypes manifest in the world and as usual the conversation ranges from the personal to the political and how we can use the mythology of tarot for a better understanding of ourselves and our world.

The Last Jedi & Saving What We Love

January 4, 2018

The first episode of 2018 has Cyndera and Julienne discussing the archetypes and mythological themes in the latest Star Wars film, The Last Jedi and the parallels to current events.  Archetypes include The Priestess, The Hero, The Hermit, The Empress, The Chariot and the subverting of the Princess archetype. *SPOILER ALERT* If you haven't seen the film yet we go deep into the film so spoilers abound.

They also pull a card to reflect on 2017 and one to work with for the year to come.  The results might surprise you.

This is how we win. Not by fighting what we hate, but by saving what we love.

- Rose Tico as played by Kelly Marie Tran in The Last Jedi
