41. Self-Healing through the Tarot with Crone of Wands

It’s all about the solar (and Wands) fire this week on Tarot for the Wild Soul! Lindsay’s guest on the podcast is the lovely Christianna Wincek, aka Crone of Wands! Christianna is a witch who utilizes Tarot, herbs, and magic as tools for reclaiming, harnessing, and honoring personal power through self-healing.

“Engaging with the Tarot for yourself is an avenue back to power for people who have been stripped of their power.” -Christianna Winek

Together, we dive into Christianna’s journey into claiming her calling as a Tarot reader and plant witch, her healing journey through childhood trauma, growing up religious when you’re a witch, and (of course), the Queen of Wands. Lindsay also kicks off this week’s episode with some medicine around the Summer Solstice, and how we can honor its shining magic from either sides of the globe.

“That process is the best way to learn: just pulling a card for yourself every day.” -Christianna Winek
