Each time I pull a set of cards which I’ve done recently this card has come up. This is a significant card for me. I’ve spent since my mid 20’s not wanting to be here. After a mental break earlier this year, you do realise you have a lot more strength within you than you realise. Now focused on sending positive energy out to the universe, because once you hit rock bottom, you can’t go any worse than that. That helps in terms of resilience, and that kind of growth for myself this year. A lot of times you don’t take a moment to take a breath, and tarot is a pretty good way to do that. All the cards you see [in traditional decks] are normal and I don’t connect with any of the people or the figures in these cards, so it’s a cool project to [create a deck] having Queer faces, people of colour and gender diverse people, it’s really important. It’s not easy being different, and as you grow up you realise what is important to you, and it’s important to have lot of self-love. It is a good basis for having the strength to do what you want to be and do what you want to do in this universe. That it is possible and that you can. It’s going to be hard, and it’s always going to be hard, because you are never going to be mundane like the rest of them. We’re special and we have the strength to get through.
8. Strength – Yo
Reminder, if you also want to shoot YOUR perspective on a card that has been created you can! I will be producing a tarot deck with multiples of quite a few cards to share different stories and perspectives of our beautiful community
Just because a card has been shot, does not mean we can’t create a second one. If you resonate or connect with a particular card, then I would love to shoot it with you. The final deck may contain multiples of some cards to ensure diverse story telling and inclusion of as broad a spectrum of the Queer community as possible
