In the poker game of life, Nancy gets a raw deal. She lives with her mother and abusive stepfather in a tiny trailer, and the whole school slut shames her for allegedly giving super hunk Chris an STI. It’s enough to make any girl go goth.
We don’t see much of Bonnie as a centered, balanced Queen of Wands. True to the teenage girl experience, she’s pendulous in nature. It can be hard for fire signs to tame themselves, but when they do, there’s nothing they can’t achieve.
When Rochelle drinks of her sisters at their blood ritual in the park, she asks for compassion. She wants the power to not hate those who hate her. Pretty mature stuff considering the malicious, racist bullying she has to put up with at school.
Sarah’s path is the Queen of Pentacles going from reversed to upright. The other girls go from upright to reversed, making for a really interesting dynamic. Let’s read the Queen of Pentacles with our sweet guardian of the watchtowers of the north.
I chose Synergy for this role because she’s all-knowing and mysterious. She’s got maternal energy and acts as a guide for Jem, but she is a robot at the end of the day. The High Priestess is somewhat aloof, and won’t give you any easy answers.
I’ve chosen Karamo Brown for his confidence, and ability to zero in on people’s unique skills. I love how the Queer Eyes aren’t about making everyone the same, they’re about making people the best version of themselves.
I’ve chosen Elle Woods for her plucky confidence, and the wisdom of her innocence. Curious to know more? Here’s a little video for your entertainment.
The word of the day is perspective. That’s what I hear most often. Tarot gives you a bird’s eye view of where you’re at, where you want to be, and the steps to take to get there.
When I first got into tarot, I was easily overwhelmed by specifics. Though every little detail is important, I believe you can approach tarot by memorizing the feeling of each card. Learn to apply it to your own hero’s journey, and you’ll remember it with ease. There’ll always be more goodies to fold in later.
