The Rebis: Wheel of Fortune is now available to pre-order
Today is the autumn equinox in the Northern Hemisphere, a day of balanced lightness and darkness. A time of harvest, of celebrating the Earth’s gifts. I couldn’t think of a better moment to announce that The Rebis: Wheel of Fortune is now available to pre-order.
The Wheel is a tarot card of constant change. Of surrender and liberation, endings and beginnings. A reminder that both expansion and contraction are part of our planet’s natural rhythms. It’s a card of infinite possibilities.
For this publication, I invited writers, artists, and tarotists to examine their relationship with The Wheel of Fortune, through whatever form of creative expression felt most authentic to them.
The result is 60 pages of original writing and evocative art. There is dreamwork and alchemical symbolism. There are urban landscapes and enchanting otherworlds, trickster coyotes and burning clocks. Paradoxes and power struggles. An invitation to look beyond “past, present, future” tarot readings and into the fourth dimension. A reminder that dreaming is part of liberation work. And deep reverence for the interconnectedness of all things.
Order your copy of The Rebis: Wheel of Fortune today and it’ll ship out in the next few weeks. I’ll be sure to keep you updated as we fulfill orders. Thank you in advance for your patience — we’re a humble indie publication and I promise it’ll be worth the wait.
We’re a not-for-profit project. Profits from the sale of this publication will be distributed equally between three nonprofits committed to reproductive justice and reparations: The Sogorea Te Land Trust; The National Network of Abortion Funds; and Liberated Capital. More on that here.
I’ve spent the last year in the vortex of the Wheel. There have been times when I held it in a gentle grip, confident in my ability to navigate whatever comes my way. There have been times when I’ve found myself at the bottom, where I lay stuck, stagnant, overwhelmed by the idea of a steep ascent to the top. There have been times when I stepped back, watched it spin and spin and spin. Not knowing where it might take me. Moving between total trust and absolute fear.
Today, I am buoyant. It’s one of those moments where the view from the top leaves me breathless in the best way possible. I’m filled with gratitude: for our contributors, for my family and friends who have supported me throughout this process, for all of you reading these words.
I’m especially grateful for the brilliant vision of Xaviera Lopez, our creative director. She created the majority of the artwork for the publication: the exquisitely earthy illustrations for our front and back covers, multiple two-page watercolor spreads, and a number of other original illustrations and decorative elements that you’ll discover as you flip through the pages. She turned this editorial project into something far more expansive and artistic.
When we began collaborating, it was the spring equinox in the Northern Hemisphere (I’m in the San Francisco Bay Area) and the autumn equinox in the Southern Hemisphere (Xaviera lives in Chile). It feels meaningful that we’ve arrived here six months later, at another equinox. We’re celebrating this announcement from opposing points on the globe, which is fitting because The Rebis is a metaphor for the harmonious union of opposites.
Working on The Rebis, I have learned so much about tarot, about creativity, about community, about myself. I chose to devote an entire publication to the Wheel of Fortune because I am fascinated by the concepts of fate and destiny, luck gained and lost, chance encounters and synchronicities. Because I’m curious about metamorphosis, about the nature of change — how things seem to slipslide backward as they progress forward. Because I’m drawn to the people who walk in concentric circles, whose identities expand outward like tree rings as they grow and shapeshift. Because I believe that time is cyclical. Because I’m trying to live within the tension of opposites.
If any of this resonates or piques your interest, I think The Rebis was made for you. Come join me on the Wheel.
