It is perhaps a measure of how busy things have been that I’ve completely forgotten to blog-post new Fortune’s Wheelhouse episodes, since we started Season 3 on June 6th. I apologize! I’ll retrofit blog posts as I have time.
In the meantime, Season 3 of Fortune’s Wheelhouse has begun with 7 planetary episodes. What’s a planetary episode? It’s an overview of how each of the seven traditional planets - Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sun, Venus, Mercury, Moon - influences the iconography of the tarot. We started in reverse order, with the Moon.
Here’s what you need to know about this week’s Mars episode, which should be available in your podcast feed even now:
.This is the fifth in our planetary series covering each of the seven classical "planets" in the tarot. Featured in this show: the Lord of the Hosts of the Mighty, indomitable Mars! - including his related astrology, Qabalah, powers, correspondences, Orphic hymn, and more!
Cards in the episode:
The Tower - planetary trump of Mars
The Emperor - zodiacal trump of Aries, ruled by Mars
Death - zodiacal trump of Scorpio, ruled by Mars
2, 3, and 4 of Wands, decans of Aries
