During a particularly ugly week in which the Hating, Superspreader President of the United States has doubled down on his enthusiasm for White Supremacy and has come down with COVID-19, spreading it among his staff and supporters, host River Rose is doing some counter-programming by asking the Tarot: Where is the Love? In return, she draws the Queen of Wands reversed, the Page of Swords, and the Nine of Pentacles reversed. In this cautious but mind-opening spread, we are reminded that our best source of love is each other, and that we must keep an open mind and pursue truth to find it. Among River's sources of inspiration this week are David Attenborough's Twitter account, Twinsthenewtrend's YouTube channel, and the co-opting of the #proudboys hashtag.

Life can be a lot to deal with at any given time, and in the midst of a global pandemic, while you're also dealing with social and political upheaval, it can feel impossible to keep going. To address the state of overwhelm that so many of us are dealing with, host River Rose asks the Tarot: what can I do to get unstuck? In response, we get the Six of Cups, the Eight of Pentacles, and the Seven of Cups reversed. What wisom do these cards of water and earth have to share in a moment of overwhelm? Join River to find out. This week, River recommends The Daily podcast from The New York Times, which recently did a two-part episode about Breonna Taylor; you can check it out here.

In the tenth episode of Tarot for a Troubled Time, River Rose reflects on the transitions we're going through right now, from the new lunar cycle to the changing of the season and to the loss of Associate Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. In honor of Justice Ginsburg, who made incalculable contributions to women's rights, human rights, and justice, River asks the Tarot a very important question: how can I be an ally? In response, the Tarot deals the Four of Cups and The Moon, both reversed. What do these cards have to tell us about supporting others so that we may advance equality for all of us?

Host River Rose is reflecting on the fact that it's been a hard week on planet earth, between COVID-19 and everything else that's happened. In the wake of all of our collective challenges, she asked the Tarot: What the actual f**k?! This may not be the most constructive question, but it's meant to get a deeper wondering: How can we possibly deal with all of the devastation that is happening around us right now? This question applies to any situation that you’re finding too difficult to deal with, anything that is happening that is overwhelming, infuriating, anything that you would like to change but you can’t change, or you don’t know how to change. In response, the Tarot gave us an overwhelmingly encouraging response, with The Lovers, the King of Swords, and The Chariot. How do we make sense of this super-positive spread when we're feeling exasperated? If you're feeling stressed, check out the podcasts River mentions in this episode, by Dharmapunx NYC and Tara Brach.
