Radio, Lists and Podcast Questions

I’d love to have an ongoing list of Tarot podcasts. What are the ones you love to listen to? Please share them including links so others can find them as well.

One thing that I love doing is talking. For a Pisces, I run my mouth a lot. But I do have Aquarius rising so that helps me with my verbal communication skills. Some people don’t like talking, but I do. Never had a problem with it, actually.

Here are some Continue reading “Radio, Lists and Podcast Questions”

Interview: Joanna Powell Colbert & The Gaian Tarot

jpcToday, please welcome Joanna Powell Colbert and her Gaian Tarot. This interview is comprised of answers from both the author/artist (A) as well as the deck (D). I give the questions and then the deck is used to answer the questions. So what you read is what Joanna pulled for each answer.

My own JPC testimony Continue reading “Interview: Joanna Powell Colbert & The Gaian Tarot”

Interview: Lisa Hunt & The Fairy Tale Tarot

When I was editor of the American Tarot Association Quarterly, I developed an interview for those who had created decks. The twist on the normal interview is that I request it be answered by pulling cards from the Tarot deck itself. So, in essence, the creation of the artist/author becomes their voice.

Some of these questions are actually geared towards the deck answering for itself–a neat bit of anthromorphism, eh? Those questions are marked with a D

For the first of these interviews on my blog, Lisa Hunt has offered herself up as a willing vic Continue reading “Interview: Lisa Hunt & The Fairy Tale Tarot”

Interview: Teresa Michelsen

Teresaface2I am pleased to share an interview with the very talented Teresa Michelsen. Teresa is the owner/operator of a Tarot list I am on called Comparative Tarot. She inherited the list from Valerie Sims. It’s a great list if you like to really get into different aspects of the cards. Think of it as a large guided (albeit gently) study group.

Arwen: What was your first encounter with Tarot like?

Teresa: My Mom’s boyfriend, who lived with us, did tarot readings. When I was about 13, he did one for me that really impressed me and was very insightful. As it turned out, he was kind of like a reversed Continue reading “Interview: Teresa Michelsen”

Interview: James Ricklef

A Major 01 Mage c JWRJames Ricklef has been involved in Tarot for a very long time even if he modestly proclaims not to be one of our communities’ stars. I hope you will enjoy this fascinating chat with James.

You will find some of the images from his new Tarot of the Masters as well.

paul-quinn_tarot-for-lifeI had the pleasure of interviewing Paul Quinn. I reviewed his book Tarot For Life just a few posts back.  I hope you enjoy this chat with Paul. Don’t miss the contest at the end. You can win a copy of his book for yourself!

Arwen: What was your first encounter with Tarot like?

Paul: In the late 1990’s a guy gave me a reading that was just Continue reading “INTERVIEW: Paul Quinn”

Interview: Rachel Pollack

printaceoftreesI asked one of my personal Tarot heroes if she would do an interview for me. Imagine my surprise when she said yes. It was even more fun to do it over the phone.

I’m telling you I am learning the lesson of just asking for what you want. I’ve been damned surprised every time lately when folks have said yes! I mean can you imagine it? First Mary K. Greer and now Continue reading “Interview: Rachel Pollack”

Arwen On Tarot Connection

Stephanie Arwen Lynch uses the The Hero’s Journey mono-myth as an outline for using tarot to plot novels. The Hero’s Journey is a description of a basic pattern found in many narratives from around the world.

I am thrilled to be a guest on Leisa ReFalo’s Tarot Connections podcast. This is my second time to be on her show. She is a fabulous hostess. If you don’t listen to her podcast, you are missing out on one of the best resources for Tarot enthusiasts.

Episode 94: Tarot for Novel Writing with Stephanie Arwen Lynch

“Stephanie Arwen Lynch uses the The Hero’s Journey mono-myth as an outline for using tarot to plot novels. The Hero’s Journey is a description of a basic pattern found in many narratives from around the world.”

Please give a listen and leave a note. I’d appreciate it.

Raven Talk Radio Show: Archived Show

Last night’s chat with Mandy M. Roth and Michelle Pillow of the great paranormal radio show, Raven Talk, was a lot of fun. They are terrific hostesses who know how to keep things rolling.

I have included the show below if you would like to listen. Some of the questions were geared towards the chat room so you will hear us talking to people who aren’t there. 🙂 No, we aren’t talking to the spirits! Folks were posting their questions in the chat room.

The book I refer to is Changing Hearts by Marilu Mann. I am one half of Marilu Mann. This is the second book in the Lusting Wild series. If you love paranormal, I think you will enjoy this series.

Interview With Mary K. Greer

Recently I asked one of the leading ladies of Tarot if she would mind doing an interview with me. I had this idea of doing a contest in conjunction with her interview. To my surprise, she said yes. I panicked. I knew what the contest was going to be (read to the end for more on that), but oh dear!

Um,now what, Arwen? You asked one of your heroines if you could ask her some questions. They better be good!

HA! Who am I fooling? This is someone I’ve wanted to talk to since I first read her book Tarot for Your Self : A Workbook for Personal Transformation Second Edition. So I decided I’d just ask her Continue reading “Interview With Mary K. Greer”
