"As Queering the Tarot has progressed, it’s become so much about community and collective healing." Tarot writer Cassandra Snow on what she learned writing our best-loved column.
A card of luxury, the Nine of Pentacles shows us rise to a prosperous state and offers us a chance to look around, smell the roses, and be grateful.
Asali shares suggestions for healers who want to push back against the darkness of social atrocities, from dreaming to speaking, donating to working your unique magic.
Maranda on sickness as a sign that life has become unmanageable again.
"The biggest way this card manifests in our queer lives is when we are learning to pave our own way." Cassandra shares some LGBTQ+ specific interpretations of the Eight of Pentacles.
"The Seven of Pentacles kickstarts a time of hard work and innovation, and also encourages us to take things one step at a time, allowing space for natural growth cycles."
"The cards began to accumulate stories for me, about my friends and my relationships, how to be soft with myself when times are hard, how to hold myself accountable when I need to."
"I built a portfolio full of melanated goddesses with creamy brown skin tones embracing their femininity and power. I love making art that makes my sisters feel good about themselves."
