This week on The Tarot Diagnosis, Shannon and Luna get into the weeds with the question- when does positivity become toxic?

We thought we were going to have some disagreements getting into this one (and frankly - were kind of hoping we might get some sparks flying). Instead, it’s a conversation about how positivity and happiness are seen in our culture - and how it has both light and dark sides to it. As always, we talk about this through the tool of The Tarot, loving how this simple deck of cards can give us ways to think deeply about the wide range of emotions we all experience as humans.

Spoiler alert - Shannon can’t stop referencing Parks and Recs, so if you don’t want to know what happened in season 7, save this one for later!

Luna and Shannon peel back the veil on their own lives this week, by pulling cards about themselves and asking what is blocking happiness and positivity in their own lives.

So here’s a question to ponder (which, btw- you will be seeing on Instagram later this week). Is it possible that The Sun is one of the most difficult cards to work with in Tarot, because although we all say we want to be happy- we actually have a very weird relationship with that desire.

We also invite you to participate in the Mental Health Awareness Daily Tarot Challenge on Instagram!

Final note- if you have a moment, it would mean so much to us if you could rate and review our podcast on whatever platform where you are listening. We are stunned and humbled by the response we continue to get from our listeners and feel honored and privileged to be able to share bits of our knowledge, experience, and passions.
