Mercury may be in retrograde, but we will survive! And how apropos, today’s episode features a really cool individual who dabbles in astrology! Meet Wolf Marnell, a coffee aficiondo by day and Tarot Teacher…by day AND night! I recorded this episode back in May when Wolf’s wife was currently preggo with their little babe. Wellp, their sweet baby has since come into the world! Yay!! So if you talk to Wolf, also make sure you congratulate him on his newborn kiddo.
We had such an awesome conversation and I learned sooooo much, plus talking with Wolf is like talking with an old friend! He’s clearly got a kind soul, and his passion for Tarot (and other forms of mysticism) is so clearly evident in our conversation. He blew me away with his knowledge of Tarot (should I keep capitalizing this or no? haha) and he totally busts some myths you may have heard about it too. He offers Tarot in a way that makes it feel accessible and like an extension of the self, encouraging individuals to tap into their inner wisdom to read the cards and thus build your personal understanding of your deck.
Honestly, if you don’t already own a deck you’re probably going to immediately buy one after this. And don’t worry, he offers you guidance on how to choose a deck!
Per usual, our mascot (meowscot?) Coco makes an appearance!
