Removing Gender from Queer Tarot

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.

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.

Queering the Devil- 15: Version 3

Queering the Devil tarot Card- Raven: “I chose the Devil, because it represents my wild self, my world, my wilderness, my primal instinctive nature that knows no limitations no restrictions. I picked it to celebrate myself, to reclaim my physicality as something sacred.” This beautiful card was shot in New Zealand, in Wellington up in the bush, and as part of the shoot we created a ritual celebration to celebrate the Devilishness in us.

Queer Tarot Cards The World Queer Tarot the World Card

Queering the World Tarot Card

Queering the World Tarot Card: Don’t be afraid, fear not, you’re going to go through hell. But you have an inner strength, and inner femininity that keeps you going. That dream of womanhood.”  Sometimes womanhood isn’t what you’re born with, it’s something that you earn, you have to work to.  The World as a card of vulnerability, openness and nudity, and freedom of expression. I’d say “You have so much traveling to do, so much adapting to do, you have so much to work for.  To unveil yourself and show the world your true colours”

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 The World Tarot Card version 2

What is home? And how do we define it.  This interview started me thinking about the end, beginning and completion of cycles, travel and the passing of time, and truely came into my life right at the time I was thinking of going on the road too and moving overseas to Canada. I’m so grateful for all the lessons I’ve learned through these Queer Tarot Cards.

Queering the Wheel of Fortune Tarot Card: Fortuna

I chose the Wheel of Fortune card, because I am of Australian Aboriginal and Romani decent and the Wheel is particularly significant to Romani people, to the point where it is in the centre of our flag. The wheel informs the whole philosophy of the Romani people,...
Queer Tarot Cards The Hierophant Queer Tarot the Druid

Queering the Hierophant: The Druid 5

Queering the Hierophant: The Druid 5: Queer people look to alternative types of Spirituality for guidance and mentors when the traditional church either does not accept or spurns them Hierophant Druid. From a strong connection to earth, Druidic practices, and the fact that often Queer people look to alternative types of Spirituality for guidance and mentors when the traditional church either does not accept or spurns them. To share this represents to me the wonderful things we can learn from the historic traditions of magick and here specifically druidic practices and create the most fertile soil for our own personal growth.

Queering The Empress – version 2

It was a real pleasure to shoot this card, with a new angle, and different power and attitude.  This shoot we knew which photo would be the Tarot card almost immediately, just like we did on the Tower shoot with Teddy. It gives me shivers when this happens. There was a wee kitty around the house who I thought might join the shoot as many of the other pets/ animals have in other shoots, but she decided not to.

The Moon – 18

Queer Tarot Cards:
Really tapping into their feelings of desire, intuition and trusting your gut, they came with a power- reversed play on the wolf and Little Red Riding Hood.  Playing around with a digital projection of the moon and casting shadows was such a wonderfully powerful and tender experience to be part of.

Queering the 6 of Pentacles Queer Tarot 6 of Pentacles

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.
