Tales from the Hearth: A Collective Tarot Reading

Tales from the Hearth: A Collective Tarot Reading

WARNING: Unedited 30+ minute podcast episode ahead.

Welcome to the Storyteller’s Workshop! For day one of the Storyteller Project, Lisette Alvarez conducted a collective tarot reading to inspire a new modern folk tale. By the end of the week, there will be a fully produced mini episode in this feed. Between now and then, however, you will get a mix of podcast episodes which include unedited workshopping, sample audio, and a trailer. That’s because each day, Lisette will work for a set amount of time based on a part-time workload in their area. So this unedited episode? Didn’t want to waste an hour there that could be put towards editing the final product. So you’ll hear all the phone notifications, bumping of tables, ums and ahs and stutters. That’s the messy work of the story sausage, my friend!

The decks used:

Tarot of the Divine by Yoshi Yoshitani

Next World Tarot by Christy C. Road

The final spread:

  • The nature of the main character(s): Three of Cups
  • The nature of the conflict: Six of Cups
  • The nature of the motivation Four of Wands
  • The antagonist: Five of Cups
  • The allies/skills needed: Three of Coins
  • What must be sacrificed: Four of Cups
  • The message: The Lovers
  • A message from collective’s shadow: Queen of Cups
