Welcome to the new website, and welcome to my blog! I made this blog because I love tarot. Tarot has been part of my life in various way since I was a kid, and as an adult I've been so delighted to discover queer and radical tarot resources that have helped me connect with tarot in deep, authentic ways. Tarot helps me stay grounded and understand my own brain/the world better, and it's also just fun and endlessly fascinating.
I've been posting for a while, but didn't make the blog public right away because of domain/web design shenanigans, and I had planned to go live this weekend. It feels weird, though, to launch a thing in the midst of so much grief and trauma. For the time being, this is primarily intended to be a blog, but there is a business component (currently the side-est of side hustles). However, I think we all need to use our voices, in every space, to help tear down the structures that target Black lives and to build a new world in which Black lives matter.
So here's my small contribution to that for today:
First, while I hope folks will read my blog, rather than asking folks to buy readings from me right now, I am asking folks to support Black-owned businesses by ordering a reading from one of the many brilliant, insightful, experienced Black tarot readers on the interwebs. Three that come to mind are Siobhan Rene, Asali Earthwork, and V., and there are lots of other folks as well. They have awesome blogs too! You can also donate to directly support Black femmes and other Black folks through High Moon Femme Tarot, or donate to one of the many organizations supporting black lives.
Even if you don't have dollars to give right now, I hope you'll take one action today, even if it's a small one, to support black lives. This post talks about the recent events and some ideas for action.
Second, if I do receive any money for doing readings this month, I will donate 100% of what I receive to support Philando Castile's family and Alton Sterling's kids.
Thanks for listening, and welcome to Hearth Tarot! I hope you will read my blog, talk with me in the comments, and play tarot with me sometime.
