Temperance: Interview with Angelo Nasios

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!).

Tell us what you thought of the show on Facebook or Twitter @TarotPodcast !

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 World - True Balance and Connection

July 20, 2013

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.
