This deck feels like a very personal window into someone's journey working with the Tarot. It is a vibrant reminder of the reciprocal relationship which can develop with the Tarot - we bring our own story to the Tarot and the Tarot shapes our story.
An Eclectic Queer Tarot calling on a Different Future, inspired & informed by the Patella & Madness. The Patella Tarot is a very personal expression and has been described as "a celebration of queer, neurodivergent, and disabled realities on the path to spiritual integration and freedom from oppression."
Paint Fremmerland (they/them/he/him) describes themselves as a neurodiverse queercrip witch. He created this deck as part of a personal healing journey from sexual trauma and says: "This Tarot seeks to soothe and empower marginalized and disabled activists in their own pursuit of healing and justice in the world. The symbolism is shifted to reflect metaphors of our modern world and call on a future that is not ruled by constructs of money and gender. It has elements of body horror while dealing with mental illness, representations of strength while dealing with disability, joint hypermobility syndrome, PTSD & overlapping complex medical experiences.
This Tarot emerged spontaneously as part of my journey towards healing creative pathways in my mind in relation to past trauma that affected my ability to create to my full ability. Creating this Tarot has propelled me to go beyond my limits in new ways, as I hope it will also enable you to. It is informed by my understanding of polyvagal trauma theory and almost 10 years of personal magical and spiritual practice."
