39. Activate Your Destiny Through Tarot with Alia Walston

This episode is a Wild Soul Interview with Chicago based intuitive Tarot reader, educator and healer, Alia Walston! Alia is a former student of mine, someone who I love and cherish — she is amazing, and brought big time magic and medicine to this interview.

“We have to have our painful journies to get to where we are, but it doesn’t have to be only a journey of pain. We don’t have to be limited by what our brain is telling us.”

Alia’s work with Tarot and astrology is to help liberate folks from old paradigms of victimhood, scarcity, and fear. Her healing practice centers on intuitively channeled conversations with clients in order to give them the tools to make informed choices in alignment with their true soul’s purpose. So in this interview, we’re talking about how Tarot can be a tool of empowerment and self-discovery plus some deep medicine around The Fool, Judgement, the Seven of Cups, Temperance, and the Moon.

“The more I live in alignment with my true self, the more magic and opportunities keep happening.”
