Tarot is best used as a tool for self-discovery, healing, growth, empowerment, and liberation. Tarot archetypes provide the reader with a window into present circumstances and future potential.

OK. If you are a person who is cisgender and heterosexual, and you read tarot, especially if you read for other people sometimes, here's what I need you to do:

I loved this book within the first five pages. This book wonderfully lays out the meaning behind each card in the tarot deck and gives various compassionate examples of what queering the cards look like and how they can be relevant to the reader or querent’s experiences as an LGBTQQIPA2P+ person.

This book has given me so, so much more to consider in terms of interpreting the cards, especially in regards to giving readings to folks in the queer community.

It specifically looks at the cards from through a queer lens, as well as a sex-positive, polyam- and kink-friendly one. It doesn't shy away from discussing sexual or polyam theme

As long as I've been reading Tarot, I still think it's important to get new points of view on the cards. The author here provides personal stories, giving new angles and important insights into the Tarot. I have no doubt that I've learned more about this craft that and that the way I read the cards is now further enriched from reading this book.
