The Queer Witch Podcast


Sep 12, 2018

This week is all about Tarot. First, Anna Joy introduces a new segment (complete with a jingle by Molly @thefirebrandwitch) called “Dispelling New Age Bullshit” and gives a historically accurate response to the commonly held myths about the Tarot deck, where it originated, and who came first: playing cards or the Tarot.

Then we move into a wonderful interview with Casey Wait, creator of the Flower People Tarot, a nonbinary Tarot deck. We discuss Casey’s upbringing within Christianity, what inspired them to create their own decks, some stories about the swords suit, the Ace of Cups, and other specific Tarot cards that Casey has found prominent during their deck design and in living life. We also get into the importance of avoiding cultural appropriation within Tarot, and nerd out a little bit on some history (what do you think inspired the new segment?)
