PRE-ORDER sacred relatives tarot NOW!

What inspired me to make sacred relatives tarot?

When my Great Grandmother Brenda passed away 2 years ago, part of my healing process was throwing myself into gardening because flowers remind me of her and it was a way I could feel connected with her on the other side.

I’ve been in love with cartomancy (reading cards) since I was 12 years old. And I’ve been an animal and plant spirit communicator since I was born. They’ve been some of my greatest teachers. In our colonial society, humans often assume we are the most important members of society and the only sentient beings worth listening to.

My inspiration for this deck is to help others relate to plant spirits and animal relatives in the way I do…by developing a deep psychic relationship with the magic each sacred relative brings to the table.⁠ They have a lot to say and if we learn to listen and receive their medicine, I bet it could change our present situation a lot for all beings.⁠

I hope this deck will help you discover some of the ways our sacred relatives are communicating with you every day and provide comfort and clarity in your journey!⁠

Why should I back this deck?

Representation

People always ask me where they can find divination decks made by Black, Indigenous people of color, disabled folks, and Queer artists. There are some ah-mazing decks by marginalized folks out there, but we are so scarce, you’d really have to know where to look. We don’t occupy much space on the shelves of spiritual stores…yet. 

Perhaps one day soon, it will be easy for a young 12-year-old like I once was, to walk into a metaphysical shop and see people who look like them & share their life experiences, represented on the shelves. Who knows? Maybe they’ll be inspired to make their dreams come true too. #representationmatters #fortheculture

Solidarity

If you decide to back this deck, you are supporting a: Black, Indigenous, Chronically Ill, Disabled, Queer, 2Spirit creator & small business. My work is dedicated to using my psychic abilities and ancestral magic to provide crowdsourced, mutual-aid scholarships to other marginalized folks who are interested in taking my virtual classes, receiving spiritual services, mentorship, and even tools for their spirituality, on Patreon.

Equity

This project also helps me have sustainable income while my disability and illnesses are unpredictable and generally considered degenerative. In addition to the witches of color scholarships, your support also brings me one step closer to my big goal of starting a wolf sanctuary!

I’m also a Psychic Medium, Evolutionary Astrologer, Hoodoo Rootworker & radical Brujx. I come from a unique history of adversity, trauma, ancestral wounds and healing. My story is different from what you see in the spiritual mainstream, and so is my mission.
My life, and being of service as a spiritual worker is about helping others reclaim autonomy, agency of our psychic abilities, ancestral magic, and redefining healing and success for ourselves. I don’t believe everything “happens for a reason”, but I do believe we can channel purpose through whatever life throws our way…
