Card of the week: 3 of Wands
Song of the week: I’m Every Woman - Chaka Khan
This week is a time of action and reflection. This month, in honor of Women’s History Month, I’ll be using Our Tarot for all of my weekly readings. This deck, created by Sarah Shipman, connects each card to a historical woman. The 3 of Wands is Henriette Delille, a black woman of French Créole ancestry from New Orleans who founded the Roman Catholic order of the Sisters of the Holy Family, an organization of free women of color that provided nursing care, homes, and a school for orphans and education to enslaved children, even though it was illegal at the time.
As the spring approaches, the 3 of Wands asks us to spend time to reflect - and give ourselves credit for - all that we’ve accomplished in preparation for the coming season change. How have you moved forward this winter? Where do you want to go from here? Spend some serious time reflecting on it this week and start to plan your next moves. What is your big mission? How do you want to move the world and make it better? Make sure that you are grounded in your vision this week. Henriette challenges to have vision - not only for our own individual wants and needs, but those of the community and society at large.
