I’m Dr Giavanni Washington, and I am your Black Goddess Guide for this Goddess Activation. Early in my spiritual journey, I excitedly ordered an Afro-Cuban Orisha Tarot deck. When it arrived, I was appalled and disgusted to find that the Afro-Cuban Goddess, Oshun, was portrayed with glowing white skin.
This was the last straw for me…
We are always confronted with the violent and oppressive historical truths of this country – genocide, slavery, Jim Crow, lynching, mass incarceration, hundreds of unarmed Black people murdered by police. And the violence of erasure has even seeped into the domain of sacred and the spiritual.
There are so many tarot and oracle decks that teach about other cultures, but there are so few that teach Black women about theirs….
IT’S TIME TO DECOLONIZE THE GODDESS!
Creatrix, and the upcoming Goddess Activations, take the magic of oracle decks a step further. Featuring divinities from the upcoming second volume of the Black Goddesses Within oracle, the Goddess Activations are a container through which you can connect to divinities in whose image we are made.
Practical and meaningful? Absolutely.
