From the Creator, Tea

The Black Gold Lenormand isn’t a traditional Petit Lenormand deck. This is a deck that aims to be expansive in its approach to self-work and spiritual discernment, specifically as it relates to Black American traditions. “Not just old time ways and superstitions to be taken with enough grains of salt to repel spirits, but a system of beliefs…collapsed into the mundanity and supernatural experiences of our everyday lives as Black people.”* Because Black people can never not be magic. It is us and we are it. And that's how it's always been. Whether we are playing, singing, gathering for church, working, dancing, resting or the simple act sweeping a broom across a floor. 

However far we travel from home and however long we’re separated from land and lore, we remain rooted in our divinity. And this knowledge empowers us to continue to thrive. We are now in a period where we have to seriously re-commit to our indigenous, sustainable and community-minded practices. There are valuable lessons in Black history and culture we can draw from. Each card offers up a symbol and a meditation that can be used alone or as a supplement to tarot card readings. 

One day in February, I woke up at 5am and began designing a deck of cards. The next day I woke up at the same time and worked into the night. The work exhilarated me. The imagery came to me easily. It felt as though I had been preparing for this for a long time. The process lasted roughly a week, and then I had a full deck of cards and written guide for using them. I knew it was the start of something I wanted to do forever. I felt whole doing this work. And into this deck I put many of the lessons I've learned on my journey, that I'm sure many folks on their journeys of spirit and self can deeply relate to.
