“The CLNnow Deck allows me to feel seen in so many ways that I don’t know that I’ve ever experienced in tarot…sex positivity, race and cultural awareness and more.”

“I’ve been working with Tarot for almost three decades and I can’t even begin to express how excited I am about this incredible work. The art is amazing and the guidebook is a fantastic tool for learning about tarot. If you are looking for a place to start or you’re a seasoned practitioner, this is a wonderful resource.”
I had never done a tarot reading before the CLN deck, but the cards’ themes of social justice, people of color, joy, peace, etc., etc. interested me, and I trusted that the CLN folks had created something worth exploring. The right occasion for my first reading presented itself just before the winter solstice, when a distant lover crossed the Pacific to hang together in the Mojave and figure out whether and how our romance c/should evolve across distance and through the transitions in our respective lives.
The reading was beautiful. As a general skeptic, I wondered about the deck’s inherent power to divine truth and interpret life from some far out dimension. Deep resonance and seemingly impossible coincidences with a couple cards we drew fueled my curiosity on these more supernatural points, but it was my rational brain that was so impressed by the reading. Magic aside, the cards set an amazing tone for some important relationship conversations. With the deck, our discussions were scaffolded with compassion, respect, curiosity, reverence, community, and the other values infused in the cards. With this supportive framework, we were able to navigate difficult conversations from a generous, caring, abundant space instead of the insecure, scarce, grasping place that too often characterizes romantic discourse. In this way, the CLN deck contributed to my health and well-being while helping strengthen and deepen my connection with a loved one…not bad for my first reading.

“I received the CLN deck at the end of 2018, during a moment of deep personal overwhelm and challenge. The amount of professional work and personal responsibilities I was having to hold felt beyond my capacity. It was precisely at this culminating moment that I sat down with the Big Book of Q’s, held it in my desirous hands, felt the sensation of overload in my buzzing palms, and let my fingers slowly skim over the pages as I asked the silent question, “What do I need to know in order to move through this challenge with more ease and grace.” The book opened as if a palm extended, and there he was, The Juggling Genius Fool, the reverberation of the name itself inviting every cell of my body to open into a sense of relief, release and surrender.
The CLN deck has been a profound, playful and generative resource in my journey this last year. It’s multi-layered language of symbols and signs have watered the soil of my intuition and invited me deeper into the living myth of my own life.”
