A lost road will remember your footsteps because someday you may want to return, tracing the way.
“When the Star Father appears it tells us that a new and as yet unformed potential of power is beginning to express itself. The cards that fall around it will tell us a bit about how this potential will manifest. It can mean a new life, a new path, and be as vast as a new civilisation or as subtle as the seed for a personal revelation.”
New beginnings are forming within your life, whether you are aware of them consciously or not, and they will lead you into a new awareness of who you are actually coming to be. Whether you are a man or a woman, the Shamaness tells you that it is time to connect to that part of you who is in contact with the natural world, and can read the signs that nature gives you. In order to get to this place, a journey will be undertaken. Whether this is an actual physical journey, or an internal journey, you will be given the opportunity to glimpse the divine in a way that will inspire you for the future. Star Father’s seed is potent, do not underestimate the shy whispering beginnings that may be emerging into your awareness today.
“The Shamaness is also a mystic: she hears the utterances of Divinity on the winds, and it is through nature and magic that she ﬁnds her path deep into the inner worlds. Often this card can represent an older female magician, one comfortable in her power and who is a good teacher. Such a person is often overlooked as they do not often appear powerful, but their force is hidden: when this card appears a woman of this quality is involved in the situation or is within the situation’s orbit.”
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.
