For the next few months, I will choose cards from the African American Tarot deck as a prompt for my blog posts. Let’s see what spiritual insight I come up with!
Justice + Knight of Swords
Society teaches us to push on, no matter what. To overlook and sweep under the rug imbalance and injustice. We are inundated with imagery which suggests that these ways are the norm. It’s normal to watch a Black man shot down by law enforcement. It’s normal to see the mentally ill being mistreated by fellow citizens. It’s the norm to step over or record a human being who is passed out on a subway platform. People don’t check to see if he/she is alive, they’d rather record it for the Gram. Those things that were once considered abnormal or an anomaly are now the norms. The good thing about all of this is that we can forgo the programming that says this is customary. We have the power of choice. The power to say no, this is not my norm and I will stand for what I know is right.
This week’s message is encouraging you to fight for and pursue justice in every area of your life where you’ve identified imbalance. If you have become apathetic about the problems of the world, stop. Instead, pick a cause to dedicate your time and resources to. If you’ve allowed an area of your life to become imbalanced. A relationship, work-life balance etc. choose to bring justice to this area. Use your will, your inner warrior to call in rightness. Make this a priority and let nothing stop you. Ase.
