the hierophant


Susie Chang and Mel Meleen are the wise and wonderful hosts of Fortune’s Wheelhouse, one of my favorite podcasts.

Susie and Mel are in the midst of breaking down the esoteric correspondences of all 78 tarot cards found in the Rider-Waite-Smith deck, Aleister Crowley’s Thoth deck and Mel’s own Tabula Mundi deck. They’re looking at the cards and telling us how symbols from Hermeticism, kabbalah and astrology are incorporated into the cards, as well as other correspondences like the Golden Dawn color scales, musical notes and scents and smells.

It’s a fascinating and informative podcast, and I couldn’t be happier to have them here. We’re gonna talk some tarot, the quartered cross, the history of cartomancy and other oracular games. There’s even some Lebowski thrown in for good measure, and we give you guys a taste of how Mel and Susie break down these esoteric correspondences by doing a one-card reading for yours truly.



Love yourself. Think for yourself. Question authority.
