Tarot, among other occult practices, is enjoying a resurgence in queer communities, but its practitioners often find themselves revising interpretative texts to fit their realities. By embracing an older deck and simultaneously developing current and re-visioned ways of interpreting its images and the cards’ meanings in general, She Is Sitting in the Night provides a much-needed informed, aesthetically strong, accessible queer tarot book for feminists, queers, and tarot readers new and old.

“A beautifully crafted book, one that is filled with stirring images that are accompanied by an interesting exploration of symbolism that will provoke thought in even the most casual of readers.” —apt613

“There was just so much amazing writing to sift through, I didn’t know where to start. This is a beautifully-written, generous, thoughtful book filled with ideas for working with your cards in a more radical/queer way.” —Little Red Tarot

“The descriptions are a mix of charm, thoughtfulness, and humour which make for an insightful, meaningful, political, but also sometimes very light hearted read.” —Spiral Nature

“An important document, a conversation across generations of feminism and LGBTQ politics.” —Autostraddle
