Leo Rising: A Living Tarot & Creative Intuition Podcast

English, Religion, 2 seasons, 59 episodes, 1 day 12 hours 36 minutes
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. I learned so much from her! --- Support this podcast:

North & South Nodes with their Corresponding Tarot Cards

On this episode, I explore the north and south nodes of astrology and their corresponding tarot cards. There's a theory that the north node is your "guiding star" and your south node is the lessons you've come into this lifetime with, or what you're learning in your first 30 years. This information was so helpful for me to think about! I mention Jubilee of @cedartreeceramics, and  --- Support this podcast:

Boundaries, Compartmentalization, & Exploring Temperance

On today's episode, I explore my relationship to boundaries and compartmentalization. I take a look at my history with dividing the world into categories, my professional experience as a mental health counselor and how I used boundaries as self-care, and share about the Temperance card, which is all about de-compartmentalizing parts of the self to make and share a whole being. But what does that look like in today's context, with social media, business branding, and online safety (both physical and emotional?).  --- Support this podcast:

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.

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!&nbsp; --- Support this podcast:

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. --- Support this podcast: http

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.
