Hi, friends!

I'm Claire Burgess (they/them), and I'm a queer tarot practitioner, astrologer, teacher, and witch. I'm also the host of The Word Witch Podcast, a biweekly podcast exploring tarot, astrology, spirituality, and more, with a focus on folx making magick from the margins. This Patreon directly supports the production of the podcast. Thanks to you all, I'm able to keep it a free and public resource!  

How I Tarot: 
I read tarot as a narrative that tells us the story of our selves. It provides us a deeply valuable portal into investigating the Now, the crossroads of the past and the future where we have the most abundant power to create our reality. Tarot isn't about fate; it's entirely about autonomy. It's about harnessing our incredible power to direct our destinies through healing, introspection, growth, and change. All the Tarot asks is that we approach it with an open mind and a willingness to be active participants in forming our futures.

My purpose:
My goal for this Patreon is to offer tools and guidance through tarot and astrology to help you on your own intuitive path. As a queer person and a survivor of trauma, I practice tarot and offer services through an intersectional, non-patriarchal, queer lens that seeks to unlearn privilege, break down oppressive conditioning, and liberate the collective in whatever small ways I can. In that interest, there is no hierarchy to patronage. I believe that money should not be a gatekeeper to knowledge and intuition. Every level receive the same content, with the exception of The Star, which receives a personal 1-card monthly reading. If my work serves you, pay what you are able! I honor and value whatever you are called to give.

What you'll find here:

  • tarot spreads as I create them, 
  • a tarot or astro lesson every month, 
  • free downloads of my workbooks and workshop handouts, 
  • excerpts from my tarot book-in-progress, 
  • podcast outtakes and extras,
  • a Patron-only collective reading every month, coinciding with the new moon. 
This Patreon has already helped me raise enough money to pay an audio engineer to help me edit my podcast, and my next goal is to be able to pay myself some! Thank you all for being part of this community with me. <3

Stay magickal,
Claire

You've helped me pay my audio engineer, and now I'd really like to pay myself! Reaching this level will allow me to have more time to create free content like the podcast, spreads, and tarot guidance, and to work on long-term projects like my tarot guidebook and book of spreads.
