This comes back to the card, to imposter syndrome, not holding yourself back and being self critical. Do the things that scare you. So I flipped the script on it, don’t let that scare you. Don’t let that stop you. If I’m already where I am, imagine where I could be in 6 years. Just trust the process, you will get there.
Why the Queer Tarot Project is on Patreon: Asking for support is hard, asking for feedback is hard, asking for money or financial support is the worst. But it shouldn’t be. Patreon will help sustain my ability & freedom to create the Queer Tarot Project liberated from commercial interests – Creating freedom & community with Magick.
Slow Holler Deck Giveaway & Queer Tarot Patreon for 2020: However, it feels like I’ve come to announce new year’s resolutions. Ironically they’re more like resolutions from YEARS ago, in the planning, finally coming to fruition just now!
Queering the 4 of Cups: It’s not “It could be better” but more “you should be aware of what you have right now – the perceptions”. Queer Tarot- We need to see a highly diverse tarot deck, people of different backgrounds, and energy. It’s a bunch of archetypes and energy combined. Queer means everything, it’s a rainbow, queer can mean something so weird an odd but in a good way. Something that is interesting not as immediately apparent. Queer can mean one thing to one person and completely different to another.
The woods we’re in right now are a particularly queer part of the woods, because it is a cruising place. One of my favourite things is to wander the woods during the late afternoon in summer, and just listening to the sounds of the forest, and seeing men moving through the woods, feeling my body, and other bodies and the warmth of the sun. This card for me is that it is grounded in curiosity, he’s not learning because he has to, he’s learning because he wants to.
It’s okay to feel really strongly, and it isn’t more strong to shut down your emotions and be cold. There’s a lot of strength in being able to just feel things. My way of being strong is radical gentleness, to be vulnerable and soft when it would be easier not to be.
The drag really helped me, to be able to put what ever I was feeling on the inside, on the outside in this creative being that. Make up for me as well is the same. I hate it when it’s in a job because you’re sitting there, you’re doing the same thing, where as when I’m at home and I’m doing my make up it’s completely different.
I am worthy if beautiful spaces, I’m worthy of intimacy, from others and myself. Connection and love in myself.
Put on your armour, weather that is your lipstick or your favourite boots. Your queer armour, what ever makes you feel good, what ever protects you, and enforce those boundaries but also fight for the things you want.
Queer tarot is so important because we’ve been bequeathed this language, all these archetypes and we get to play with them. We get to reimagine the world with Queer Tarot
That Ace of Cups, that dreamy, aspirational queer inside that still is able to thrive. We’re not supposed to just survive – we thrive.
