Episode 291 contains an interview with T. Susan Chang about some of the parallels between astrology and tarot cards as forms of divination.
Susan is a professional tarot card reader, and the purpose of this discussion was to examine some of the ways in which astrology is similar to tarot as a form of divination, and some of the ways in which it differs.
We tried to answer some questions like: How can tarot affect our understanding of astrology as a phenomenon? What does fortune telling do fortune telling? What are different types of divination? Which reality models support practice?
In some ways, this was a nice continuation of episode 53 of the podcast with Geoffrey Cornelius about the moment of astrology, where we talked about whether astrology is a form of divination or a science.
Susan is co-host of Fortune’s Wheelhouse’s esoteric tarot podcast and author of the new book 36 Secrets: A Decanic Journey Through the Minor Arcana of Tarot.
