A new magical experience that combines the glamourous world of Drag Queens with the mystery of the Rider-Waite-Smith tarot.


Cause Reading tarot cards is what? Fundamental!

Box cover

Hi there, Magical Squirrel Friends! My name is Juanjo Cristiani (aka @enjoy.mycake) I’m a Mexican graphic designer and the creator of Fortune Queens: A Drag Race Tarot Deck.

Since I was a little kid I used to watch Disney movies, and I became fascinated with the witch characters rather than the princesses, that’s how my love for mysticism, symbolism, witchcraft, and occultism began.

As I grew up as a queer person, I had no choice but to stand for the amazing universe that is RuPaul’s Drag Race. That’s how the idea hit me, I needed to mix two of my passions: Tarot and Drag. Every single artwork of this deck is based on the traditional Rider-Waite-Smith tarot mixing it with iconic moments, looks, and elements from the show.

A lot of people on the internet have shown me their support for this project and I can’t be more grateful for the immense amount of love my artwork gets every day! Just to mention some highlights, LogoTv (the showrunners of RuPaul’s Drag Race) wrote an article about my cards and also posted them in their official Instagram account. The Official Facebook Page of RuPaul’s Drag Race also shared the article and posted an Instagram Story with my cards.

Major Arcana

Likewise, some queens that make an appearance on my deck such as Aja, Asia O’Hara, Jujubee, Manila Luzon, Peppermint, Shea Coulée, liked, commented, or even shared the cards in their social media! 

Every single card in this deck is inspired by an iconic moment or look from the Drag Race Universe mixed with a tarot card from the Rider-Waite-Smith deck. Take a look of some of the moments that inspired these cards!

Manila Luzon as The Eight of Swords
Crystal Methyd as Six of Wands
Aja, Milk and Morgan McMichaels as The Tower
Alaska (Lil’ Poundcake) as The Hermit
Jan as Three of Swords
Crystal Methyd, Aja and Pearl as The Devil

Make sure to take a closer look of all the cards I’ve made and the inspiration behind them on my Instagram profile!.

  • Every card portrays an iconic queen, moment, or look from the Drag Race universe.
  • The Fortune Queens Tarot Deck will be larger than a regular-sized deck (3.34″ x 5.82″/85mm x 148mm)
