To fear death, my friends, is only to think ourselves wise, without being wise: for it is to think that we know what we do not know. For anything that men can tell, death may be the greatest good that can happen to them: but they fear it as if they knew quite well that it was the greatest of evils. And what is this but that shameful ignorance of thinking that we know what we do not know?
So, what can I say!!!!
These cards present an unequivocal face of change today, and you can be certain that in some area of your life things are being removed and disposed of! Patterns of power that you have been confronting in the recent past, are now ready to disappear from your life, and they are making their way down into the Abyss. Your respect and awareness have paid off, and although it has been difficult to keep going with what you have been trying to do, it seems that for now at least, that peace will descend once again. In many ways, your deepening awareness of the realms that lie outside of your daily “sight” have helped you to accept the change that was unconsciously invited years ago, releasing you from situations that held you in the darkness.
“The Goblin Queen’s power, is about the consolidation of territory, generations of control, and total conﬁdence in the stability of her power. The Goblin Queen is fearless, powerful, and not above toying with a human for her own amusement: this deep and conscious power of the land is interested only in the continuance of its power and territory. Threaten either of those, and you will ﬁnd yourself up against an enemy far beyond your capability. Pay homage to her power and oﬀer service to the land as a magician; you may just ﬁnd yourself on the periphery of a vast, ancient, and protective family.”
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.
