Michelle and Maree discuss tarot, oracle decks, accessing your intuition, and Maree’s current projects. Maree has created the Antiquarian Tarot Deck. Her current project is the Divine Muses Oracle Deck, and her future project is an oracle deck on the inner child. Michelle and Maree play a little and both pull from the decks they have on their desks, which is a great reminder of how they both studied Art History.

This episode works to demystify the Occult and really shares how amazing it would be if we all had a deeper access to our own intuition.


  • “I believe that we are all intuitive, as children, we all have this ability to connect with source.”
  • “Listen to what comes through.”
  • “Occult, all it means is hidden… Christians… don’t understand that they created the myth of the devil… It’s really not scary; it’s just unknown. That’s what occult means.”
  • “All this stuff… that’s mystical… [they are] just tools for self-development… a way for us to reflect back at us the information we already know.”
