For Personal Reflection, Increased Self-awareness, and Contemplative Meditation
This deck has been designed for personal spiritual growth rather than divination or prognostication. That being said, there are more than enough parallels for the deck to be used that way in the right hands.
“The Tarot of Sister Who was an idea initially conceived in the mid-1990’s, which evolved in various ways and was delayed mostly by the challenge inherent within the enormous scope of the work. In its final form, the deck evolves beyond the traditional Tarot by moving in the direction of androgyny, mystical representations, and inter-relational dynamics.
“The individual components were nonetheless directly inspired by the structure and content of the traditional Tarot, without which they would not be what they are. My intention was to create a symbolic language which could be empowering to persons of any spiritual path whatsoever.
“The Major suit within this deck is composed of twenty-two archetypes of life’s states or progressions. One can respond to their specific yet endlessly fluctuating meanings in a wide variety of ways. Approaching with love and openness instead of fear and dogmatism brings an infinite spectrum of positive possibilities within reach.
“The deck uses the four minor suits of Candles, Chalices, Thuribles, and Paraments. The suit of Candles draws upon symbolisms of fire, of spirit, of wands, and of summer. The Chalices draw upon symbolisms of water, of emotion, of cups, and of autumn. The suit of Thuribles draws upon symbolisms of air, of intellect, of swords, and of spring. The Paraments draw upon the symbolism of earth, of physical forms, of pentacles, and of winter.
“Each suit contains cards numbered one through ten, followed by four more cards: confessor, celebrant, angel, and saint. The Confessor is that voice that listens and cares without making demands while the Celebrant is that voice that leads actions of deep experience. The Angel is that voice which directs protecting love and the Saint is that voice which lives in harmony with spiritual beings.
“May you–the one directly using the cards–be blessed with spiritual and personal growth that is individually appropriate to you.”
An Introduction to Sister Who in their own words
I am a Sacred Clown, forms of which have been part of every tribal society since the beginning of human history; the one whose job is to inspire others toward personal/spiritual growth and a positive attitude toward discovery, diversity, and constructive change. A soft-spoken and gentle gay man also known as Denver NeVaar, I am passionate about the value of life and spirituality, have also competed in physique/bodybuilding and enjoy hiking and skiing.
My spirituality is very eclectic, having begun within the Roman Catholic Church and included experiences of Pentecostal and Non- Pentecostal protestant Christianity as well as Pagan, Buddhist, Hindu, New Age, Native American, and Unitarian- Universalist forms of spirituality. I am a nun according to the more inclusive definition of a commitment to spiritual service. Through intuitive meditation, readings using various tools, and empathic dialogue, I open windows and doors of insight, offer hope, and provide inspiration that can be especially helpful within those moments when life is a confusing, discouraging, or even adversarial jungle.
