When I started Biddy Tarot, I dreamed that it would grow to be an inclusive and diverse community where Tarot lovers from all walks of life could support, educate, and inspire each other.
With that thought in mind, I’ve spent the past few days reflecting on how to respond to the heartbreaking reality around racism in the United States, in my home country, Australia, and across the world. As the Black community challenges oppression and fights out against social injustice and the fundamental human right to a life free of mistreatment, racism, and inequality — I am dedicated to supporting and amplifying their voices.
At the same time, I recognize I have a lot to learn and understand around how to be a real pillar of support for the Black community and POC. I am committed to taking this time to listen and educate myself, so that I know how to take steps towards real change both within myself, my community, and the world.
This week, the team at Biddy Tarot will be amplifying Black voices in solidarity with their fight for justice. Instead of our usual Tarot content, we will be sharing resources, organizations, and voices within the Black community. Additionally, we are committed to continuing the work of lifting up the Black community and ensuring it is a consistent aspect of our work at Biddy Tarot moving forward.
This is a transformational time in our lives, and my hope is that it leads us to a more peaceful and loving world for everyone.
