130. The Lovers & Tarot as an Erotic Practice with Christopher Marmelejo

Ep. 130

Sabrina interviews Chris about the Lovers card in the tarot and tarot as an erotic practice.

Christopher is an astrologer, tarot teacher and counselor. His queer and indigenous identity arises from the Serrano Land, as he works with community to facilitate profound realization, clarity and renewed meaning. He offers classes and consultations which interweave astrology, tarot, myth and meaning making. His classes are a (re)membering of ritual that has been lost to histories of imperialism, colonialism and slavery. By holding out a hand, Christopher calms the spirit as clients and students dive deep into the waters and realms of consciousness. Whether in the communal or personal, he facilitates healing states to explore transformative emotions, the creative imagination, and the deepest sources of faith. He seeks to cultivate a classroom of liberatory possibility, as it is elevated into a temple of ritual for communal soul-retrieval.

He is currently enrolling students in a comprehensive and intersectional tarot course, The Threshold. The Threshold uses tarot to expand our personal reading and imaging of freedom. It offers the Tarot as tool for living the Erotic. The Threshold is designed for those at the critical edge of life, navigating extreme uncertainty. It is for those seeking to learn the tarot from a decolonized, intersectional perspective and apply that perspective into a praxis of liberated self-exploration and renewed self-expression. It is for astrologers, tarot readers beginning and experienced alike, for yoginis, queer bois, femmes, butche babes. It is for teachers and counselors, writers and readers of all kinds. The Threshold is an 11 week intensive course, taught through a numerological organization.

This comprehensive tarot course and communal container is open for enrollment. The next cohort begins September 6th, 2021! Sign up by September 5th! Learn more and sign up at
