Leo Rising: A Living Tarot & Creative Intuition Podcast

Leo Rising: A Living Tarot & Creative Intuition Podcast

Avatar
By Jenna Fox
Leo Rising is a conversational exploration of tarot, personal/spiritual growth, and identity formation. It's less of a "how-to" and more of a "come along on the journey with me." I process stories from my life, both from the past and from the current moments that I'm moving through, to give listeners things to think about in their own journey.

It is hosted by Jenna Fox, an educator, writer, tarot reader, Reiki master, and queer mystical mama.

Life Update & Listener Email
On today's episode, I talk about where I am currently, just having experienced a concussion of winter break from a freak fender bender (I rear ended someone at a stoplight). I muse about how it was nice to take a social media break, even if forced, and how I sometimes think that watching other people's spiritual journeys online makes me procrastinate on my own spiritual connection, because it's just not as sexy! I then read on air, a listener email, who responded to my Which New Year episode. This listener, Lisa of  @ninthwavedesigns  on Instagram, is so thoughtful in her own exploration of Samhain vs. New Years, giving us much to think about, including the timing of Samhain,  Zeno's Paradox of the Tortoise and Achilles, and the Kabbalistic belief if tzimtzum of creation.

Tarot Suits as a Battle of Elements: Air vs Fire
On this episode, I talk about the elements of air & fire as they relate to the tarot. This was sparked (no pun intended!) by my purchase of The Dark Days Tarot, which goes against a more traditional view of which element is paired with which suit. In the tradition I learned, swords= air and wands=fire, but Wren McMurdo of Dark Days Tarot has followed her witchcraft tradition and made swords=fire and wands=air. So I go on a rambling adventure around how seeing the tarot through a different lens can enhance the practice, as well as my own feelings about each of the elements.

North & South Nodes with their Corresponding Tarot Cards

I talk about Freyja and the Celtic Morrigan. I mention Biddy Tarot, Tarot.com and Aclectic Tarot, as well as "Google" for some of my brief research on the symbolism.

What are the invitations that these cards are asking for us to explore together as we wrestle with the current 24/7 news cycle and social media. I talk about colonialism, patriarchy, white supremacy, trauma, power, control, struggle, and lots of difficult topics. No easy answers, but sitting with the questions.

Tarot as a Metaphorical Map of the Moment
On Episode 12 I introduce you to some of the information that I am learning from Ren Zatopek's Simple Spiritwork online course (that's free!), including her quote that "all maps are metaphors." So tarot can be a map for this moment?! Yes! I was introduced to Ren in an episode of Sarah Chappell's podcast: So You Wanna Be a Witch? I recommend listening to that podcast, as well! I mispronounce her last name in the episode, oops! It sounds like chapel, not shapelle. Sorry Sarah! I take this concept of maps as metaphors and apply it to my tarot practice. I share some vulnerable insights from a recent motherhood experience I had with my son who lives with sensory processing disorder, and my own insecurities as a mom in general.

Hanging by a Moment: A Look at the Hanged Man
On this episode, I take a look at tarot card #12 in the Major Arcana: The Hanged Man. You'll learn different meanings for this card, including: -suspension - restriction -sacrifice -letting go -martyrdom -surrender, and -changing perspectives. You'll be introduced to Tess Giberson's zine on Major Arcana, which says that The Hanged Man explores discomfort and examining where our limitations are. Tess references Rachel Pollack's philosophy that the Major Arcana is split into 3 lines of 7 cards, with The Hanged Man dealing with identity/metamorphosis. I discuss my feelings of limitations with these definitions, and wanting The Hanged Man energy to encourage people to play more, to trust their body/mind/spirit and embrace spontaneous experiences to get out of their comfort zone and see the world from a different perspective, not because they're being forced to, but out of childlike curiosity!

Lions and LGBTQ: Reading Tarot at Pride
On this episode I reflect on my experience reading tarot at the Burien Pride festival over the weekend. I look at the dictionary definition of pride, as well as the definition of it that I had grown up believing. I then talk about community and where lion symbolism shows up in tarot, like on the Major Arcana strength card. Mentions: Nicole Hamilton Yoga (@yogabird19) as well as Adaptive Yoga Northwest.

Imposter Syndrome & Tarot Card Reversals
On today's episode I talk about where Imposter Syndrome is showing up in my life, and how I have been embracing a beginner's mind by diving in to the topic of tarot card reversals. I start off talking about how I felt out of my depth this past week in a philosophy lecture on campus, as well as in my own genealogy research.

Mother May I? A Reflection on Inherited Patterns
Motherhood is a complicated subject for me as an adoptee, so on Mother's Day I did a personal spread that examined things that I've inherited from my biological and adoptive families, as well as what I am passing on to each of my children. I walk through each of the cards in the spread and how they relate to my life. I share deeply personal thoughts and feelings that were brought up in the week following, including my fear of loss, my coming out experience, and some of the struggles in my parenting journey!

Infusing Technology with Tarot, AKA Apps Rock!
It's 2018, what's stopping you from infusing technology into your tarot practice? I share my journey to tarot reading through the use of tarot apps, specifically The Fool's Dog app, which has access to SO MANY different decks at your fingertips (for a really low price!). I can check out a deck, with the full guidebook, for only $3.99 and decide if I want to make the commitment to a physical deck. It's also great for when I want to be discreet and read for myself in public places like the doctor's office waiting room, or in my car. I can do a spread on the app without having to shuffle and lay out cards on the germ-infested office floor, risking ridicule by the rest of the patients. Win-win! I mention Beth Maiden of Little Red Tarot, and The Fool's Dog tarot app that can be found on Google Play. I also share that my favorite deck is Shadowscapes by Stephanie Law.

Magic and the Three Types of Skeptics You Might Encounter
In this episode I look at some definitions of magic and decide whether tarot is magical or not. Yes? No? Maybe? I mention The Queer Witch Podcast by Anna Joy Healing! I also talk about the 3 different types of skeptics I've met along the way in my tarot journey. There's the: 1) The Science/Rational/Logical Mind Guy (aka my husband) 2) The Afraid to Look in the Mirror Skeptic 3) The "I Don't Know Much, Could Tarot Actually Help Me?"

Tarot & Upholding Systems of Oppression
This episode is just the beginning at tackling some big topics in tarot. I talk about hierarchy in the court cards, the idea of upward mobility or a bias toward success as a ladder as we move through tarot cards, and why tarot is SO WHITE (and why it shouldn't be). I do a personal 3 card reading on the subject and would love to open this conversation up to more discussion. I'm not the first to say that tarot has some flaws in upholding systems of oppression.

Astrology is like Making Dinner
In this episode I talk about my journey with astrology, which began way back when by sneaking peeks of horoscopes in the Sunday newspaper! I liken astrology to ingredients of a dinner, if a certain sign all starts with rice (our sun sign), we add layers of meaning in by adding custom ingredients (other planetary signs) to get one unique meal! I also share my difficulty in conceptualizing astrology as a 3D system that we try to flatten down into 2D for my brain to understand, which stands in contrast to the 2D system of tarot which we are working to expand into 3D (making it come to life!) for our clients. I share resources: -The Only Astrology Book You'll Ever Need -Chani Nicholas (astrologer) -Elissa Ball of Hit the Deck Tarot (tarot reader and Seattle Weekly's Space Witch Column) Instagram: @leorisingtarot Website: www.leorisingtarot.com
