hey pals!

i'm a non binary healer, folk tarot reader, city witch, and zinester based in so-called ottawa, canada.  a cancer sun and moon, aries rising. 

influenced by anarchist studies on gendered labour and bodily autonomy, I approach tarot as a spiralic, revolutionary tool to assist the collective. to name lineage, influential texts in my tarot study include:
- emergent strategy by adrienne maree brown
- caliban and the witch by silvia federici
- joyful militancy by nick montgomery and carla bergman

my goal with this patreon is to offer inspiration through ritual, tools, practices, collective readings and vlogs for you to develop and strengthen your own healing practice.  

your pledges contribute to the running costs of creating folk medicine including tech tools, software, and time.  thank you so much for your continued support, monetarily and energetically.

there is no hierarchy to monthly contributions, meaning each financial level has the same access to content.  contributions are pay what you can, starting at 2$, as I strongly believe tarot cannot be used as a tool for healing and transformative growth if it's not accessible.  energetic descriptions of the numbers are provided to aid in choosing a monthly contribution that resonates for you. 

and a quick note on community - please be mindful of the ways you might indirectly (or directly) contribute to oppressive structures and hierarchies within this space.  while there are no safe spaces, this is meant to be a safe(r) and anti-oppressive space with zero tolerance for racism, sexism, transphobia, whorephobia, or violence.

sacred balance
$2 or more per month 60 patrons
all twos are cards of sacred balance, the ace looking at it's own reflection. 
synthesis
$3 or more per month 14 patrons
all threes are cards of what is in process of formation, the tension of the two with creative impulse. 
containers
$4 or more per month 7 patrons
all fours are containers to process, where formation becomes concrete reality with all it's limitations, a numerical boundary.
contractions
$5 or more per month 10 patrons
all fives achieve growth through confrontation as we move out of the security of the four. crystals have no five in their numerical classification, there is no hardening of form at the basis of five.  five loosens, five is revolutionary. 
cyclical expansion
$6 or more per month 3 patrons
all sixes are cycles that bring us back to points where we've been before, but now we have a chance to evolve and expand. rest and tension.  completing something with the impulse to enter a new stage.
paradox
$7 or more per month 1 patron
all sevens are moments of trust as it becomes obvious that something can't be solved the usual way.  whatever is associated with seven is not in motion, yet it is the cause of motion or has motion going on around it. 
transformations
$8 or more per month 2 patrons
all eights are transformations, movement happening below the surface.  saturns ruling provides a firm anchor for creation, destruction and healing.  eight is the first and last note of an octave.  
individual realization
$9 or more per month 1 patron
all nines are the individual realization of a suit.  ups and downs, depth and height, the fall and scramble back up.  
collective fulfillment
$10 or more per month 2 patrons
all tens are the collective fulfillment of a suit.  one is a single great potential force but this force can only unfold by developing via other numbers.  ten consists of a one that has been able to contract it's power. tens are free to embody the full meanings of their suit. 
Goals
$284 of $600 per month
This will help me afford rent in order to be able to spend more time creating low-cost or free offerings and make healing accessible to all, while keeping a roof over my head.  From the bottom of my heart, thank you SO much.
