“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.”
A day for recognising that you have all that you need, right here at hand, and that healing is where the heart is. After a good many weeks where “Disease” has been showing up relentlessly, its good to see that the close of this Moon cycle is attended by healing and resources. Strengthened and ultimately invigorated by your recent journeys through the lands of LXXXI Quareia, you feel empowered to now take the road that you know is for you. Movement is in the air, and you are ready to step forward, with energy, strength and calmness.
As The New Moon in Capricorn falls tomorrow, that’s all from LXXXI Quareia for the moment. It will be a trip to Eastern realms next, with a tour of the I Ching next, as I cast the apple stalks, harvested from my mother’s orchard.
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.

My long knowledge of Astrology leads and informs my practice, in offering guidance, empowerment and healing, helping others to lead a more authentic and magical life. You can read more about me here.
