Let's geek out together and go on a deep dive through the suit of the Pentacles in the Tarot - with a specific focus of reflection and wisdom for entrepreneurs.

The suit of Pentacles shows us that our work is not separate from our spiritual experience; but instead, it is an integral part of it.

In this episode, I discuss:

  • the history and etymology of the pentacle
  • the importance of being grounded

  • the nourishing quality of the element of earth

  • the essence of the sacred within the mundane

  • our own inherent value + the value of the work that we do

  • insight around our work, career, and the way we show up in service

  • an expansion of our idea of abundance


Root In: a FREE 10 day intuitive journey through the Pentacles designed for entrepreneurs

OF HOW THE SUIT OF PENTACLES
CAN HELP YOU TO GROUND INTO YOUR BUSINESS

In this 10-day series, you will receive:

  • Daily videos, each exploring a specific card within the suit of Pentacles

My work stems from a devotion to my training as an educator, yoga teacher, and energy worker, and a personal practice of integrating tarot,  mythology, meditation, and intuitive development into my every day spiritual exploration.  I believe that everyone is intuitive, and our inner wisdom can be uncovered through committed practice and play.

You can see my intuition expressed visually with my design work, or listen to me talk about business + intuition in the Integrated Spirit Podcast.  I also teach magic makers to uncover their inherent intuition in my Wisdom Within School of Intuition. I teach the powerful archetypes of the Tarot in A School for the High Priestess (soon to be transformed into Unlock the Arcana of your Business), a training program in mystery, magic, and ritual.

Episode [6]: Transforming your Refusal of the Call into a soul-filled YES

 
ISP Episode 6 refusal of the call.png
 

When I see a common idea or concept showing up for  me time and time again, I know that I need to pause and see what the message and wisdom within that topic is for me.

In my work and personal life, Joseph Campbell's The Hero's Journey outline has been knocking on the door of my awareness in a variety of ways.  When I looked for where the message within his journey outline was for me, I saw the key to unlock my own personal message was within the idea of the Refusal of the Call.

In Campbell's outline, the Refusal of the Call comes towards the  beginning of the story cycle and is not something that everyone goes through in myth - however I have been seen this come up for me many times in my life.  In this podcast episode, I share how I am creating a shift in how I have, in the past, not fully answered the call to show up as a Spiritual Activist within my work.

A note:
I want to note that for me personally, there are some points within Joseph Campbell's journey exploration that don't resonate with me at all.  I do not agree with the "lesser-than" lens through which he views native cultures, for example, or the way in which his journey highlights the actions in the male journey while not really showcasing the role of women in a positive way.  However, as you can see within this podcast, there was still a message within this work for me.
 

In this episode, I discuss:

  • How fear or perfectionism can halt us from saying "yes" to an inner call to action, and offer two quotes that can inspire us to release that fear and take the first step forward towards the calling of our spirit
  • My own short-comings in hesitating at the call to action, and my desire to fully show up
  • Resources that may inspire and support you in saying yes to the call to activism within your own work
  • How the refusal of the call has come up for me within my own spiritual practice
  • The way we can say "yes" to the call, showing up in our own unique way, with our own unique tools, gifts, and skills
  • The way The Fool within the Tarot has been working with me as I dive into a place of inquiry around how I have been showing up and how I desire to show up in the present and the future.

Episode [5]: Transformation in the darkness with Wren McMurddo of The Dark Days Tarot

 
 

In this episode I interview the artist and magic maker behind The Dark Days Tarot, Wren McMurdo.  

Wren is a believer in facing the darkness - from truth-telling tarot cards to emotions + depression to our current political and environmental situation.  Wren sees the shadow as an opportunity for transformation and deep inner healing.  That call to action and to create a shift is a thread that runs through our conversation.

In this episode, Wren + I explore:

  • Releasing the negative stigma of emotions and instead embracing them as a portal for healing our heart space
  • Wren's inspirations behind the deck, including environmentalism and social justice
  • The way that Wren connects to her intuition within her business
  • Wren's journey from fashion school to owning a chocolate business to illustrating her own Tarot deck
  • How the cards with a shadow side can be a call to create a shift and change within your own life and work
  • The power of play and creativity

About Wren McMurdo:

Find Wren here: Website  | Instagram

Dark Days Tarot was designed, illustrated and published by Wren McMurdo, an intuitive artist in Seattle, Washington. Wren has been studying Tarot for eight years, and has been illustrating since early childhood. She finds joy in her own ever-evolving witchcraft practice. Wren channeled her Cancerian connection to the moon and its phases, in congruence with her concern over the destruction of the planet in creating these cards. She lives with her wife and parakeets.

The Dark Days Tarot deck is inspired by the dark side of the moon; the blackest nights of the lunar cycle.

Darkness is the subconscious, the dream world, the spirit realm, the unknown, and fertile ground for self-reflection.

Dark unlit nights offer an opportunity to “see” with senses other than physical sight. Answers, clues, and journeying linger in darkness.

Use this deck when you need deeper understanding and inspiration for forward movement.

Drawing inspiration from lunar archetypes, this deck features a diverse cast of feminine and androgynous characters.

Episode [4]: Using guiding cards from the Tarot to lead you forward in your business path

 
 

Over the past few months, I have been feeling into the shift of my business as I focus towards supporting entrepreneurs in strengthening their intuition and inherent gifts.  

As I have been navigating through this journey, I have called forth two guiding cards or signifier cards to guide me forward towards fully stepping into this transition:  The Empress and the Mother of Pentacles.

When I was feeling into the energy of my business back in 2014, before I knew what it would be called, The Hermit came forward to be as being the archetype of my business.  It was my signifier card.  

Now it feels as though the Hermit, as he has been sitting in communion with the High Priestess, has called forth the Empress and the Mother of Pentacles to gather under the light of his lantern within his mystic's cave.

Having a Tarot card to serve as inspiration within my work has really been a powerful practice to help keep me focused on the path, the mission, and the vision of my business.

In this episode, I share with you:

  • What is a signifier card
  • The energetic fingerprint of the Hermit and how it helped to guide  me forward in the first phase of my business
  • The way the Empress and the Mother of Pentacles have stepped forward for me
  • A deep exploration of the Empress and the Mother of Pentacles within the Tarot
  • How to select a guiding card for your own business

Episode [2]: What kind of intuition do you have?

 
 

I am so excited for today’s episode!  Today we are going to talk about one of my all-time favorite subjects:  Intuition, and more specifically, the 7 main ways that our inner sense of wisdom can speak to us.  One of the things that fascinates me most about intuition is that, just in the way that we all may have different learning styles, we all also have different styles of receiving intuitive nudges.

In today’s episode, we are going to explore these 7 different ways that we can connect with our intuition, how you already may work with one of these types of intuition within your daily life and within your work, and how you can harness the power of your specific type of intuition to really accentuate your life and business.

We'll be looking at how the following clairs can come forward for you within your day-to-day experience (with show time for each clair):

  • Clairvoyance (12:30)
  • Clairgustance (21:30)
  • Claircognizance (26:00)
  • Clairaudience (33:30)
  • Clairaliance (38:12)
  • Clairtangency (43:16)
  • Clairsentience (50:24)
