Queer the Cards, Liberate Your Practice, and Create the Future


"This book is a vital jumping-off point for conversation, contemplation, and change-making of your own design . . . Queer or not, you will begin to understand why this modern twist on tarot  serves each of us and, more importantly, the world . . . You will be transformed." -- Cassandra Snow, author of Queering the Tarot


Tarot is a tool of possibility, questioning, exploration, and transformation. Yet too often it is reduced to rigid, binary definitions that reinforce restrictive norms. In Radical Tarot, Charlie Claire Burgess reclaims tarot as a tool that can free us from oppressive paradigms and empower us to direct our own futures through radical reflection, self-discovery, and change.

With deep, knowledgeable, and lyrical looks at the cards, Burgess deconstructs the cards' historical meanings, offers queered and updated interpretations, and invites the reader to imagine what else could be possible for the cards, for themselves, and for the world. Queer, expansive, intersectional, and creative, Radical Tarot is more than a guide to tarot -- it's a guide to your own personal revolution.


Informed by queer theory, social and environmental justice, and Burgess's lived experience as a queer and nonbinary person whose life was changed radically through tarot, Radical Tarot is for anyone who dreams that better, more liberated futures are possible.


Because tarot doesn't tell the future; it helps us create it.

Expanding the traditional tarot archetypes beyond the gender binary, this deck re-imagines the cards from a queer and inclusive perspective.

The more we work with Tarot, the more we realize that binaries don't exist and everything is fluid-gender, meaning, even time. We come to realize that we're all creatures made of earth and air, fire and water, all four elements bound together by the fifth element: spirit. Fifth Spirit Tarot goes beyond the gender binary, queering the archetypes with 78 beautifully illustrated and hand-lettered cards by queer and non-binary tarot reader, teacher, and writer Charlie Claire Burgess.

The artwork lovingly features folks of different races, body shapes, abilities, ages, and gender expressions. Instead of renaming the cards for gender-neutrality, Fifth Spirit seeks to challenge the gender binary and expand notions of gender through the juxtaposition of traditional title and queered imagery. In Tarot as in life, a nonbinary femme can be King, a cisgender man can be Queen, and everyone in between can defy or expand or ecstatically embody any or no gender that they wish.
