Patch up the facade you present to others if you have to, but stop lying to yourself. Things are not going as well as you have been pretending they were, but it is not too late to do anything about it. Step One: Stop. Step Two: Bury your heart. Step Three: Allow yourself the time and the patience to rest, to let go of those hurts and poisons that you thought would make you strong, to allow yourself the necessary indulgence of being weak and vulnerable. Otherwise, how else are you going to allow the medicine present in the love of those who care about you seep in?


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.
