Cyndera Quackenbush interviews Angelo Nasios, author of the book Tarot: Unlocking the Arcana.Temperance is the card under discussion; a card whose angel symbolizes the "middle way" path as a solution between extremes. The need for this in today's culture, a political and lifestyle landscape of polarities, is explored with an eye on the upcoming election (some cussing ensues naturally as a result!).

This month Julienne is in conversation with Archetypal Counselor, Spiritual Director and film buff, Jim Curtan. Jim and Julienne discuss some of their favorite topics - Archetypes and Movies. They focus on the Tower card in particular and the many aspects of change that it symbolizes. They discuss the good, the bad, the scary and as well as the grace that change can bring when we fully allow ourselves to grieve the loss of the past and dive into what the change brings us. They also discuss the Tower card in relationship to popular films such as The Hunger Games, Castaway, Inside Out and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Jim has just released a self-guided audio workshop called Embracing the Grace of Change using the film The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel as a contemplation on the choices and opportunities presented by the kinds of change that the Tower card can present.

The Woo Woo Episode

September 11, 2015

Julienne and Cyndera are back to the closet (aka Archetypal Tarot's secret headquarters) for an in-depth discussion on superstition and all-around "woo-woo," which the urban dictionary defines as “unfounded or ludicrous beliefs.” After using these terms in a few podcasts, they received an email from a listener asking just why they are so down on anything 'woo-woo' or superstitious. Always happy to hear from listeners and taking this question to heart (and mind), J and C clarify what they mean by superstitious and philosophize on the subject of the tarot, astrology and other systems as both sacred and important learning tools for discernment. The podcast incorporates feedback from Twitter followers, the esteemed "Uncle Carl" (Jung) and contemporary idea guy Seth Godin among others.

The World - True Balance and Connection

What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from. ~TS Eliot

Finally we reach the culmination of this heroic journey with card 21 –The World! In this last of the regularly scheduled podcast series, Julienne and Cyndera discuss beginnings, endings, rebirth, transformation and fulfillment. After all these trials and tribulations of the hero's journey, we now come to know true balance and connection to our destiny looking back across our past and forward into the future. We feel the benefit of the journey thus far and see that our evolution is not just for ourselves but for the good of others. From this stage onward, our sense of risk is different because we have a greater understanding of the richness of life and recognize both the strength and space to hold challenge and loss as well as joy in the days to come.

Judgement - Redemption, Evolution and Our True Calling

June 18, 2013

With a trumpet blare and a scene depicting people rising from graves as shown in Judgement - card number 20 of the Tarot, Julienne and Cyndera discuss how the hero of our journey is called to leave the old behind – not just Death and those stages in between.

This penultimate edition of the Archetypal Tarot Podcast sees Judgement as a stage of the rebirth process where one is asked to call the old selves back up and with it the old stories to release their particular hold on us and see them in a new light. Through the lessons and experiences of the journey we can now judge what best action should be taken and rise up to the challenges to embrace our life and answer the greater 'Calls' of our life beyond the egoic or the mundane. We see now our true calling is in every breath of our lives playing out in every moment.

Julienne regales us with how this story of redemption and evolution is played out poignantly in the 2012 epic film Cloud Atlas with the compelling stories of lives interwoven over 500 years.

Cyndera relays how the academy award winning documentary "Searching for Sugarman" captures the essence of a true calling held within the Judgement card. Throughout the podcast the ideas of redemption, evolution and levels of change effect how we see our true calling. Full show notes with links and references

The Death card liberates all that has reached its end, and cuts away stagnation so that life can continue. Beyond the literal interpretation of this card, there is a rich array of deaths that visit in our daily lives: the end of jobs, relationships and also the visitations of depressions and other forms of "falling apart." What advantages are there to dismemberment and disintegration? How do Zombies and Batman play a role at exploring this the ultimate mystery of life - it's end. Or is it the end? You'll just have to get the podcast and find out.

PS: Listen to all the way to the end and you'll find the first ever archetypal tarot gag reel.
