Creating Safe Spaces for Queers in Tarot

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 spaces....

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.

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

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

The Page of Pentacles is someone you can be, at least for a little while. What would it be like to try to integrate those powers with the world around them and the body you believe them with?

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 now on Patreon

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.

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.

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’s okay, it’s been my pleasure having your stay. Now I can say I hosted and artist.”

I don’t think this person knew how much these words meant to me. I know I’ve written a little about imposter syndrome before



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.

Exhibitions: Gain disguised as loss

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.
