“The Magician is able to transmute the matter of any subject. With her teachings, transformation is met in each student. Every escent of her being is a breath of new life to anyone who encounters her. She is the kundalini. Her moves will seem like acts of God, or magic, to those who don’t understand the mysteries of the universe. Any acts of this Magician will change all forms of life. Simply by witness. How she moves, how she speaks, and the manner in which she creates, will catch the eye of every onlooker. For she, in her essence, is magic.” –Christine Scanlon
The first time I was introduced to the tarot was one of the first few times I hung out with Christine. She pulled a tarot deck from her bag to do a reading and I was like, “what the hell is that?” As she belted out with her signature laugh, she said, “Shut the fuck up, you don’t know what tarot cards are?” It makes me laugh going back to these memories because they were the beginning of the path to a much gentler, sacred self. Christine has an effortless ability to staying present and grounded in who she is and witnessing her do a reading is truly magical.
The idea of creating our own tarot deck came to us a few years ago. When one of us said in our weekly phone conversation, “We have to create our own tarot deck!” As quickly as the idea surfaced, it dissipated. But, Alas! Here we are! Both of us with a little more time on our hands while pushing each other, we have birthed what we have deemed as a passion project but it has already become so much more. The universe has a way of making things happen when the time is right. We cannot express in words how deeply excited we are to share this with you. We have worked so hard on this already and it’s just the beginning.
There is never only one way to get where we want to be. But one thing we all are capable of becoming is our own magician. Learning that sometimes we can use our magic for our benefit. You become the Magician, it’s just matter of accepting her terms. Or the terms of reality. A lot of times, she lives right in your chest, beating, thumping and dancing to the bass of the music that has been in the background of your life all along. For those who know it, feel it, and move to her beat–you are your own magic.
This time next year we’re hoping to be at a point to release a kickstarter to allow the printing process. Of course there will be a lot of cool things involved that you will get with each “tier.” This project is one that we are so deeply in love with already. I could only hope that it will land as deeply in your hearts as it always has in ours.
