Dan and Scarlet open the episode with an astrology and tarot forecast for the week of January 28, 2019 to February 3, 2019, followed by a discussion between the hosts about how Tarot and astrology actually work. The discussion addresses skepticism about the practice of these two forms of divination. Instead of being treated as provable, predictable sciences, the hosts explain how Tarot and Astrology are more like symbolic languages that connect directly with the human subconscious and encompass the human experience. Tarot is discussed first, explaining the history and pragmatic reality of how Tarot actually works, and astrology is discussed second, explaining how the movement of the planets can connect your subconscious and sense of identity with symbolic calendars that organize the passage of time.

Dan and Scarlet open the episode with an astrology and tarot forecast for the week of January 21, 2019 to January 27, 2019, followed by an interview with Ryan Peverly, who hosts The Occulture Podcast. We look into the phenomenon of podcasting, Ryan's skeptical views of the occult and supernatural, the pitfalls of conspiracy culture, and much more. Please excuse the choppy audio as this was our first Skype interview (and Mercury was conjunct Saturn on day of recording).

EPISODE 4 - MILLENNIALS AS THE PLUTO SCORPIO GENERATION, PART 2
Dan and Scarlet open the episode with an astrology and tarot forecast for the week of January 14, 2019 to January 20, 2019, followed by part two of a two part discussion on Millennials as the Pluto in Scorpio generation. The conversation picks back up in the mid 2000's, covering new developments in technology and culture when the Millennials were coming of age. The 2008 ingress of Pluto into Capricorn is discussed as an event that coincides with the new Obama presidency and the 2008 financial crisis. The hosts reflect further on the early 2010's until now, where Millennials have been in the "real world" and have formed a unique approach to spirituality. The show concludes with reflections on how the culture has become divided and difficult from 2016 until today, and how the Millennials can use spirituality to transform society for the better.
