Today’s cards: The Hermit – IX, The Lovers – VI, & The Shaman – II.

You have been telling yourself that you’re okay “like this”. That the present set of circumstances fits you better than the ideal you keep turning away from. You can only intellectualize the pain from your awareness for so long. Don’t wait until it hurts too much to try to do anything about it. Sit and face the ache now, while you still have the faculty to not make rash decisions about how to deal with it. It will take time for you to cultivate the connections you need to ease it for good, but it will be worth the trouble to cultivate healthy ones that will support you for more than you think you need.

The Dust II Onyx tarot deck is Courtney Alexander’s homage to her Black heritage and to the Black matriarchs and leaders of her communities. The deck is also a love offering to the LGBTQIA+ community and is presented as a tool for every person within the African diaspora to feel a connection to without prejudice.
