So, welcome to day one, of my month with LXXXI-The Quareia Magicians Deck! As a technical note for those who wish to know the positions that I am using: from left to right, the cards are position 1,2 & 3 on The Tree of Life, so in this reading, Magical Attack is placed in the position of Keter, Fate Holder in Chokmah and Blood Ancestor in Binah.
So today, although you may feel that you are being drawn into difficult situations which feel negative or tense, you are advised to steer well clear. By giving people who do not have your best interests at heart, your attention, you only feed their desire for power. Stepping clear of unhealthy relationships and situations today, will help to diffuse any potentially difficult energy, and ensure that you do not get drawn into a downward spiral that can only lead to more of the same. Take comfort in the strong presence of The Fate Holder, also known as the Measurer: She Who Measures That Which Must Be Contained. She reminds us that our futures are not set in stone; rather they are a complex pattern, a weave we can explore and travel down in our journey through life. When this card appears it tells us where fate is being measured and held, where there is a period of time during which something should be engaged with. It may be, that any difficulties that you are experiencing at the present moment, may be connected to an ancestral pattern, of which you are the current bearer. Take time to reflect on dynamics which may be being passed down through your own family, and which may be attracting difficult situations to you… flying flags to bring your attention towards that which requires healing perhaps. Know that you have choices here, and are not powerless, but that in order to keep your strength, focus on changing the only thing you have power over, yourself.
Quareia, the new school of magic for the 21st century, is a concept that was born out of conversations between adepts Josephine McCarthy and Frater Acher; two European magicians with solid magical reputations in their respective fields.
The course is spread over three sections: Apprentice, Initiate, and Adept. Each section has ten modules, and each module has eight lessons. Each of the three sections is approximately five hundred thousand words of original writing: it is the most extensive, in-depth, and intelligent up to date magical course that is currently available world wide.
The Quareia deck is not based upon any tarot system, but rather it draws upon the mythic, mystical and magical powers that underpin the magical systems that tarot eventually developed out of. It is based upon real inner realms, real inner contacts, beings and forces that the practitioner of magic is very likely to involve themselves with. The cards themselves can be used in many different ways, and besides using them in layouts, they can also be worked with in meditation and magic. The cards, which are inner contacts, spirit beings, places and powers can be worked with in a ritual, visionary or meditation setting in order to connect with those powers, or to bring the power into a ritual work space. LXXXI – The Quareia Magician’s Deck is a unique magical tool for 21st century magicians. LXXXI is a collaboration between magical artists Stuart Littlejohn and Cassandra Beanland, and magical adept Josephine McCarthy. All of the paintings are original works of art in oil, acrylic, or watercolor, and are the result of three years painting and collaboration.
