Spirit Keepers Tarot & the I Ching with Benebell Wen

Ep. 224

On episode 224, we're joined by Benebell Wen - a creator whose offerings in tarot, the I Ching, and the occult have been sources of major inspiration in my life and it was a dream fulfilled to get to have her on this podcast. Benebell created, illustrated, authored my favorite ever deck the Spirit Keepers Tarot — which if you know, you KNOW, why it is a favorite. This episode is coming out in time for you to pre-order the next print run of the deck and I’m not a sponsor, just a fan. I love the deck because it opened the door to the I Ching for me, because every card is a multifaceted universe in itself that I couldn’t really memorize but get to meet anew every time I pull the card, and because the deck is alive in a way it’s become a friend and part of the mythic weaving of my life.


In this conversation, we discuss the process of creating the deck, the nature of metaphysical power, the I Ching and several cards in particular (the tower, eight of swords, five of cups, ten of cups and 7 of pentacles). Benebell also helped me realize thru the synchronicity of some of the hexagrams and cards I mentioned & their associations that I apparently have a relationship to thunder more than I thought. Kind of magical because at the time of recording and publishing this conversation, I’m living in Peru (for a little bit before I return to the states) and I experience more lightning/thunder in the Andes here than anywhere else I’ve ever lived.


Benebell Wen is the author of Holistic Tarot and The Tao of Craft. Her third book, I Ching, The Oracle is forthcoming June of this year. She is also the creator of the Spirit Keeper's Tarot. Visit https://benebellwen.com/
