Who we are

Quareia is a new school of magic for the 21st century. It is open to anyone, everywhere. Its content is entirely free of cost. The Latin term quareia refers to the place where stones are squared. That is what this course aims for: to equip you with the magical tools to work on the rough stone that you are. Josephine McCarthy is the director and author of all Quareia material; Frater Acher is acting as Quareia’s patron.

How This works

Quareia is a self-study course organised in three sections (Apprentice, Initiate and Adept); each of the three sections contain ten modules; these are broken down again into eight lessons for each module. To access all of this content there is no cost, nothing to sign up for, and no registration - all lessons are freely available for study on this page. Quareia’s goal is to advance magical training with integrity and authenticity, and in a way that is accessible regardless of income, race, or gender.

If you prefer to work from printed books instead of the online lessons available here, you can also purchase the three Quareia section volumes from amazon. — To get started, either explore our FAQ document on Quareia as an organisation, or begin diving into The Apprentice Study Guide, to get additional insights on how to best set out on the course. Also, you can find further resources and free materials at the end of this page.

Finally, personal Mentoring is freely available to students who have fully completed the Apprentice section. For further information on how to apply for Mentoring, please refer to our FAQ document.

LXXXI - The Quareia Magicians Deck & Book

A divinatory card deck for the experienced magician.

What it is.

LXXXI - The Quareia Magician's Deck is a unique magical tool for 21st century magicians. LXXXI is a collaboration between magical artists Stuart Littlejohn and Cassandra Beanland, and magical adept Josephine McCarthy. All of the paintings are original works of art in oil, acrylic, or water colour, and are the result of three years painting and collaboration.

The deck has 81 cards, a mystical number that relates to completion, and it is divided in to four realms: the Divine Realm (red borders), the Inner realm (blue borders), the physical world (green borders) and the realm of death and the underworld (black borders). The further away from humanity a being or place is, the less human it becomes. This is reflected in the deck, and can teach a magician a great deal about how beings function and why.

LXXXI - The Quareia Magician's Deck  is not based upon any tarot system, but rather it draws upon the mythic, mystical and magical powers that underpin the magical systems that tarot eventually developed out of. It is based upon real inner realms, real inner contacts, beings and forces that the practitioner of magic is very likely to involve themselves with. 

Because of this approach, the deck works as a contacted deck, i.e. used magically the images can act as gateways to inner realms, inner beings and magical patterns. It can be used for magical or mundane divination, or as a direct connection to inner contacts, as gateways for meditation, magical visionary work , soul exploration, or contacted ritual work. To ensure that the images do not become entangled in magical misconceptions, we have moved away from the relatively modern use of set ‘names’ for the beings in the images, and instead we have reverted to a very ancient way of presenting inner beings: wename them according to what they do. That way, there is no ambiguity about what a being actually is. 

Get Your Cards.

In order to magically work with LXXXI you have to hold physical cards in your hands. Unfortunately therefore it was impossible to make them available for free. In line with Quareia’s ethos, however, we made them accessible at the lowest possible point of cost. Below you can order the 2nd edition deck, depending on where in the world you would like to have them shipped. Please note: sadly we cannot ship to China as the deck & printed book are both on the Chinese customs prohibited list.

It is a book that can be useful to the Quareia Magical student as the powers in each card relate directly to the Quareia magical path.
