If we want to escape the hold of wetiko, to transition to a way of life that serves all beings, we need to value the power of our own creativity, and to understand that we are always creating the reality we experience, whether we are aware of it or not.
For the first time, the design of a new deck is inspired by America’s occult literary heritage. Thea Wirsching Ph.D, co-developer of the American Renaissance Tarot deck, is a wounded healer, astrology, priestess of SekhMet. Her life and work deserve an interview, but this one is dedicated to our discussion of this unique new tarot deck.
We interviewed Gary Lachman to discuss his new book, Dark Star Rising, and explored what Pepe the frog has to do with “hypersigils” and how magic was co-opted for nefarious purposes in the recent US election. Most importantly, Lachman suggests ways to move forward through this new occult battleground.
