This episode is a Wild Soul Interview with Rashunda Tramble, the creator of Stay Woke Tarot! She is an African-American immigrant living in Switzerland, who holds a BA in Film, an MA in Creative Media Practice, and is a member of Mensa! She reads Tarot, writes, and is the creator of Stay Woke Tarot.
“In the spiritual world—and for those of us who are spiritual practitioners—we kind of esoteric ourselves out of real life, but sometimes we gotta just break it down to life.” -Rashunda Tramble
Together we dive into Rashunda’s introduction to Tarot, the beautiful writing and wisdom she shares through Stay Work Tarot, and some deep Tarot medicine around the Death card, Tower card, Judgement card, and the High Priestess.
“Tarot is a tool, and as I worked on myself by using Tarot, it helped my Tarot practice grow.” -Rashunda Tramble
