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.
