I didn't intend to draw an intention setting card for my new space, or maybe I did and just didn't want to admit it, and that is what I got. I'm glad my subconscious knew better and asked for one anyway.
I found a great three-card spread to use for daily and weekly guidance from the Gain Tarot digital tarot app. It's called the Soul Practices spread and I find it has such a great flow and is endlessly useful as far as I can vision.
I lived through those difficult years not because I stopped being crazy but because of the femmes who recognized my crazy and chose not to throw me away. Femmes believed me and saved me and gave me bloodstone necklaces and coconut head rogations and rosemary tea and spat gin on the back of my neck and weaved amethyst crystals into my waist beads and weaved hawthorn rose wreathes around me and pulled me back from the brink and showed me how to work the shadow for my light.
Some tarot decks you can look away from. Your eye glazes over the art and you look for what you want to find; you seek out what you're used to finding in a particular card, careless of what's there that doesn't fit. Enter The Mary-El Tarot: Landscapes of the Abyss, and I dare you to look away.
Can be honest about the power of words, the power of naming, and the power of capitalism and privilege that relies on watering down entire people's traditions, memories, and spiritual technologies for its own deification and profit?
