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.
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’m choosing to be Guardian of Wands also because Wands represent the open and written word, with no gender associated with it. Queering the Court Cards.
They then have the responsibility for the way they communicate, what they have to say, and how they inter relate with the world.
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.
I would tell my younger self – don’t be afraid of owning your own power. You might be a quiet person, you might be shy but your voice is still valid in the world. Later on you will come into that voice. All those moments when you were brewing that power and thinking about things, come into play and people will hear that voice and respect it. The Queen of Wands – she’s sexy. She’s about fire, there’s a sexy, aliveness to her. I’m a cat person, hopefully not a lonely cat person, but find that power, that spark that fires you up.
I have chosen the 2 of Wands. For me the 2 of Wands is about knowing your self worth and realising your choice of direction is your own. In other representations of the card I see usually a young man looking out a the world, and he’s free to set his path. I chose the 2 of Wands. For me it is about knowing your self worth & realising your choice of direction is your own. I’ve been unravelling the stories that have been written for me and trying to find the stories that I want to write. My younger self knew but I unlearned it some where along the way.
