Queering the 7 of Wands

Queering the 7 of Wands

I’m just so bored with the Hero’s Journey. I feel culturally nauseous about it, personally and culturally nauseous about it. About one person going to do the things, and do the hard thing, and fighting off the things, and then coming back a hero. It’s not working, it’s a narrative that needs to be done. So the card for me, in the traditional images of it, are of one person and I think that’s done. The age of the guru is over, or I hope, the better language for that the “age of the individual”. White supremacy has a tendency to say, ‘Who’s the one person, no, who’s the one person.’ No one person has hardly ever done a thing.

As I move towards the end of this project, with only a handful of cards left to shoot, I’ve learned a lot about communication and the facilitation of an art project, the facilitation of a project bigger than me that includes a whole community. Creating safe...

Just because you’re queer and part of the LGBTQ+ does not give you a pass on misappropriation. On racially or culturally insensitive acts or other things in that, of that nature.Magic that doesn’t belong to you, exactly. It’s taken me a long time to be comfortable as a witch as a person, as a person of colour as a queer individual. It has taken me so unbelievably long to recognize, feel, and experience myself for the value that I have.

Queen of Swords: Take that anger, take that rage and hone it and focus it it’s going to be a long fight. Use your strength and your power to create positivity in the world. Hold your tongue a bit more think a lot deeper about the words that you are going to use be more restrained in your emotions

Queering the Knight of Swords

Queering the Knight of Swords: As a trauma survivor am reclaiming those thoughts – reclaiming my own thought and being able to focus my intellect and focus my creativity in a way that is active rather than passive. Hold your own Sword in your hand and learn how to wield them, learn how to use them; have the discipline of the Knight – anything is possible.

There’s a time for cutting yourself out of things. The inspiration and the ability to discern. Life is confusing, but seemed really when I was young. Take a few more risks. It’s not that I never took risks, but I was pretty uncertain at times.

Queen of Swords has completely changed everything about my life, including where I find my spirituality – unseen allies that follow you in the spirit world. Femme for me means embracing the feminine aspects of my personhood. It doesn’t relate to my genitals or my body.

If you’re having a hard time and you feel alone, I just want to remind you that you’re not alone. And that there’s always someone out there that’s going to be ready to help you if you just ask. I want to remind people that depression is real, and it does not make you less than!

Queering the King of Cups v2

Queering the King of Cups v2

King of Cups v2: Tarot’s always been a really important part of my spirituality. I grew up in a super religious home, so I didn’t really get a lot of it. And when I got into high school, my friends were super into it and they started to introduce it to me. It’s this beautiful, peaceful spiritual thing where you just – I don’t really know how to explain it. But it’s sort of like Paganism I suppose, where everything has a life force, but humans aren’t necessarily the most important

Queering the 4 of Cups

Queering the 4 of Cups

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.
