Greetings to all!
As many of you know, since moving out of the city, my partner and I have been staying with family in the countryside
The nature is absolutely stunning here and it’s lovely to have a break from the hectic city life. That being said, it’s not the best place for magick and my Craft is on a hold .
Poland is a fiercely Christian country- around 87% of the population identifies as Christian. Walking down the street, there are huge religious crosses and small Christian shrines (forgive me if that’s not the right term for them, not sure what else to call them!) at every corner. It reminds me a bit about the Shinto and Buddhist shrines scattered throughout the countryside in Japan
I knew this before coming out here and figured I’d just be taking a break from rituals and spell work during my stay. I still meditate and can do work in the Inner Temple, but I thought that all other magick would have to be put on hold.
So you can imagine my (delighted) surprise when I found out that my partner’s mother- a devout Catholic- loves tarot! She checks a reader on YouTube every day and thinks the cards are fascinating. I even brought out my deck and we did a reading together- really put my knowledge of tarot and Polish language ability to the test
It really opened my eyes to how powerful Tarot is. The cards have an attraction and appeal- Tarot reaches beyond borders- religious, language, cultural, and age. It’s more than a divination tool- Tarot is something that brings people together
I know there are many Tarot lovers here in the forum, so I just thought I’d share this happy little revelation. The cards have been meaningful to me for a long time, but lately they’ve been taking more and more of a bigger role in my Craft. They really are amazing!
Lots of love and a small taste of the Polish countryside from here to you :
There’s also the 20 four-leaved clovers we (I say “we” but it was really my partner who has a good eye for finding clovers!) found in the garden
Love, Light, and Blessed be!
