This week, we take half the show to even get to the question and we talk about drugs.

Peruvian ayahuasca retreat—good potential vacation or great potential vacation…HYPOTHETICALLY SPEAKING.


We answered “Bill’s” question using the Golden Thread Tarot Deck by Tina Gong. We’ve used it before and we’ll use it again, and that’s because we love it. Very sleek, minimal art. Lovely contrasting colors with golden imagery (no surprise there). Also, they’re plastic cards—they feel great when you shuffle them, and you can probably bring them into the bathtub!

This Week’s 3-Card Tarot Reading

The Past: THREE OF CUPS | The Present: STRENGTH | The Future: THE MOON
Our advice: Well “Bill,” you’re not HYPOTHETICALLY going on this retreat. You’re going on this retreat. In the recent past, you’ve been enjoying the company of some good friends (Three of Cups), friends who HYPOTHETICALLY invited you to join them on an ayahuasca retreat. You want to access your inner strength (Strength) and you’re going to do that by seeing the world in the new way (The Moon). Have a good vacation “Bill”…HYPOTHETICALLY, WE MEAN.

The Card of the Week

It’s Halloween, which means this one comes from the Zombie Tarot Deck by Paul Kepple and Stacey Graham.
