Queering the 10 of Pentacles

I would tell my younger self to look out for queerness as a turning point, queer theory, queer people.  After moving to Melbourne 6 years ago, I did not expect that queerness and intersectional feminism has been the missing link in my studies and training in mental health specifically. I would tell my younger self to just hang in there. You’re not going to find the missing piece from academic elders, you’re going to find it in the queer community for your own personal healing.  To be able to work in a more rounded way, to be able to solve problems or help relationships – it’s gender roles that are hurting people.  That was huge.  That idea was absent from the first 10 years of trying to work on my trauma.

List of All Queer Tarot Decks

LIST OF QUEER (GAY) TAROT DECKS

When I started my journey to create a Queer Tarot Deck, I didn’t know any already existed.  Now that I am so far into this project, I have discovered, found and been sent so many links of wonderful, inspiring work that has been created, recently and many years ago.  Here I aim to list and honour decks that I love, own, recommend or have simply be told about. 

Queering The 3 of Cups Queer Tarot Cards The Three of Cups Minor Arcana

Queering the 3 of Cups: Relationship Anarchy

Queering 3 of Cups: Relationship Anarchy Realising the core of who I am isn’t some set of expectations I have about myself or the people around me.  We are all much more powerful, than we let ourselves think a lot of the time, around what kind of experiences we want.  We are the authors and subjects of our own experiences.

Queering The Ace of Cups Queer Tarot Cards The Ace of Cups Minor Arcana

Queering the Ace of Cups- Self Pleasure

I live my life in and out of love, it’s not a very stable place – so * the Ace of Cups is* returning to self pleasure and developing that practice.  There is a lovely masterbation meditation that I talk about with friends. I think that the universe loves you – that’s why you’ve pulled this card, its here to tell you there is this overwhelming wash of support for you

Guardian of Wands – Queering the Court Cards

I’m choosing to be Guardian of Wands also because Wands represent the open and written word, with no gender associated with it. Queering the Court Cards.
They then have the responsibility for the way they communicate, what they have to say, and how they inter relate with the world.

Queering the 2 of Pentacles

Queering the 2 of Pentacles: I’ve done lots of overtone singing with washing machines and fridges, buzzes and hums from the industrial environment I live in, and I particularly resonate with washing machines. Ive done some intense ritual work with a washing machine, I’ve a tattoo of a washing machine. I sometimes only half jokingly say that “washing machines are my spirit animal”.  We are at “My beautiful Laundrette” in Melbourne, which is also a beautiful queer film from the 80’s set in England.  It makes me really happy that this place exists.

Queering Tarot Cards The 3 of Wands Queer Tarot the Three of wands

Queering the 3 of Wands

That’s the 3 of Wands, it’s when your planning is done and is enough, and you have this future ahead of you. I think there is a strong and meaningful interaction between the Queer Community and the witchy, spiritually, semi occult community. I think it is resistance to the orthodox and a counter culture.

Queering Tarot Cards The Queen of Cups Queer Tarot the Queen of Cups version 2

Queering the Queen of Cups: v2 Queer Queen of Cups

The Emotions, the love and the ripples of the water. The Queen of Cups is the pinnacle of honing in of that kind of energy which is something is something I strive for, being so emotionally sensitive. It’s dirty, it can be mirky water, it can be clean pristine water, waterfalls or the water that cuts through stone. I live in that kind of space in life, I know the darkness of it, and I know the light, and I’m a queen! 

Queer Tarot Cards The Queen of Wands Queer Tarot the Queen of Wands

Queering the Queen of Wands

I would tell my younger self – don’t be afraid of owning your own power. You might be a quiet person, you might be shy but your voice is still valid in the world. Later on you will come into that voice. All those moments when you were brewing that power and thinking about things, come into play and people will hear that voice and respect it.  The Queen of Wands – she’s sexy. She’s about fire, there’s a sexy, aliveness to her.  I’m a cat person, hopefully not a lonely cat person, but find that power, that spark that fires you up.

Queering the 6 of Pentacles

6 of Pentacles the reminder that caring for others works best with self care. Shot at Cloud Catcher Witch camp. Thanks PippaQueer tarot is important because it gives people with a sense of weird something to connect to. Weird is wonderful, weird is free, and being unforgivingly the most authentic version of yourself you could possibly be. To find other weird community members is like your species of unicorn. I believe I fit in in the LGBTQIA-W – being W is for Witch or Weird. I feel so connected to finding the spectrum outside of the norm. There is something so empowering about that – outside of the norm there is still community and acceptance.

The Fool Queer Tarot cards

Queer Tarot: The Fool 0

Queer Tarot: The Fool As the 0 the first card in the set, The Fool is truely the beginning, the pure, naive and purest version of yourself. With an innocence and open mind it pushes forward. Letting go of hurt and pushing forward, I try to come back to this place, embrace my inner child, without assumptions being open to new adventures.

Queering the 2 of Swords: Queer Tarot

Even if the conflict itself is terrifying – the person that you are when you come out of it is so powerful. Don’t be intimidated by the idea that when making decisions about ourselves or our lives that it’s one thing or another – there are infinite options, there are infinite paths you can take.

Queering Tarot Cards The 2 of Wands Queer Tarot the 2 of Wands

Queering the 2 of Wands: Queer Tarot

I have chosen the 2 of Wands. For me the 2 of Wands is about knowing your self worth and realising your choice of direction is your own. In other representations of the card I see usually a young man looking out a the world, and he’s free to set his path. I chose the 2 of Wands. For me it is about knowing your self worth & realising your choice of direction is your own. I’ve been unravelling the stories that have been written for me and trying to find the stories that I want to write. My younger self knew but I unlearned it some where along the way.

Queering the Majesty (King) of Cups

The King of cups is jovial, jolly and happy. I would tell younger self that “Your cup has always been full an overflowing.  Laugh more, have more fun, stress less, breathe, go outside, and love yourself.”  Drink deep, know yourself in all your parts, be the cup you need to be for yourself & the world around you.

Queering the 2 of Cups for Queer tarot. My abilities lie in Energy sharing and connection. Im an empath and I connect with the land and myself to self care. Dont be scared of connection and being vulnerable.

Queering the King of Swords: The Host

If someone pulled the Host of Swords in a tarot reading I would want them to know that having a male body in this world is gentle, it is an offering of more than self. It is a kindness, a gentleness, it is beautiful. You can romanticise yourself. You can be strong and beautiful.

Queering The Tower The Storm Queer Tarot Cards The Tower The Storm 16. Major Arcana

Queering the The Tower 16. version 2

I chose the Tower, and in some Deck’s it is called The Storm. The Tower card is about rebirth and destroying things and I think thats that what I find myself constantly doing. Throwing things out and starting again. I work writing theatre, I’ve only just learned that the best can be to say “I’m going to start again”

Queering The Lovers Queer Tarot Cards The Lovers 6. version 2 Major Arcana

Queering the Lovers – 6. v2 Miss Jin Please for Queer Tarot Cards

I chose the Lovers because it represents unity more specifically the unity in myself. When I was younger I used to shun the feminine side. It took meeting allot of people that showed me there’s no shame. Taking on drag is something that allowed me to express my femininity and love who I am.

Exhibitions: Gain disguised as loss

How can this loss serve me? Where does it point my work? I need to metabolise my pain and frustration as energy. I cannot blame the festival advertising – how can I look at this differently and look at a different door, probably one that scares the pants off me. Right here right now I am stopping complaining (mostly in my head to myself), I am going to stop beating myself up, and reach for what I really want for this project in a different way.

Behind the scenes

Behind the Scenes work for the Queer Tarot Card Project with Florence. Photographing Queer People and Telling their Stories through the Archetypes of Tarot. Creating Queer Community and a Queer Tarot Deck

Taking Gender out of Tarot

Using ‘feminine’ and ‘masculine’ when they are specifically using it as shorthand for ‘passive’ ‘active’ or ‘nurturing’ ‘stern’ Say what you mean instead of gendering it.  Nurturing, passive ‘yin’ characteristics aren’t in all feminine people.   Stern /active ‘yang’ characteristics aren’t in all masculine people.
