LXXXI Quareia Deck 01 Book and Cards

The LXXXI is an 81-card esoteric deck by Josephine McCarthy, Stuart Littlejohn, and Cassandra Beanland. It’s not a tarot deck, though you’ll see cards captioned “Chariot,” “Wheel of Fate,” Hierophant,” “Luna” (Moon), “Sol” (Sun), and “Death.” You’ll see “Fellowship” with imagery that may remind you of the RWS Three of Cups.

On a technicality, some might categorize LXXXI as an oracle deck, but I’ll just stick to what it’s been named: The Magician’s Deck. The LXXXI Quareia: The Magician’s Deck “draws upon the mythic, mystical and magical powers that underpin the magical systems that tarot eventually developed out of.” See here. “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. Because of this approach, the deck works as a contacted deck, i.e. used magically the images can act as gateways to inner realms, inner beings…

The Magicians deck.

an interesting first impression of the Quareia deck by a magician…

In this post I would like to write about the Magicians deck published by Quareia. The deck isn’t based on traditional Tarot archetypes. Its a 81 card deck that is divided in 4 realms.

“The Divine Realm (red borders), the Inner realm (blue borders), the physical world (green borders) and the realm of death and the underworld (black borders). The further away from humanity a being or place is, the less human it becomes. This is reflected in the deck, and can teach a magician a great deal about how beings function and why.”

(from the Quareia website). The deck comes with a small booklet with a description of the cards. The illustrations are very beautiful and they are very straight forward.

The cards describe processes and beings that are connected to the path of the  magician. In the booklet is a layout from 16 cards one can use…

Quareia Study Q & A

I have finally got to the last module in the Initiate section of the Quareia Course, and as of January 2016, there are people all over the world studying the course. While the first section of the course is complete self study, I have had some questions repeatedly asked of me, and so I thought it would be a good idea to put them in a blog post, and thus save me having to answer them repeatedly.

LXXXI – The Quareia Magician’s Deck

a wonderful mention of LXXXI Quareia Magicians Deck… we are all so excited it is finally coming to fruit…

la reine de l'air

When I say “I flipped out” when I learned about the LXXXI Tarot – The Quareia Magician’s Deck, I’m not even exaggerating. Somehow I stumbled on Cassandra Beanland’s Instagram on Sunday night and there it was, the Giver of Life, giving me ALL THE LIFE (named “Fate Giver” below).

Though I haven’t purchased any new decks in more than a year now – due to our dollar being in the shitter and shipping costs being outrageous (I’m so sorry all my darling indie deck creators I love you I do) – I immediately pre-ordered this deck (go now NOW NOW!) both because that art? I cannot live without it, and also the price is very reasonable (even after conversion) – you’re getting 81 cards and a book, c’mooooon – and it includes worldwide shipping. Oh…
