I used my Journeying Together spread to lay out possibilities for my trip. Instead of a tarot deck, I decided to go with an oracle, and one I have that’s been unfortunately underused. I love how The Earthbound Oracle offers up intuitively provocative messages with simple symbolism. I need to use this deck more often.

With all the air and water showing up, I can tell that it’s going to be a trip about communicating deeply with each other. For me, this isn’t a particularly positive circumstance, no matter how necessary.

Meaningful communication with family for a lot of people, especially queer folks navigating trauma often feels like navigating a minefield blindfolded, triggers aplenty. I do hold on to the fact that nothing about the way this spread laid out promises disaster or negativity. In fact it implies a positive growth from our learning to hear each other.

Learning to give each other space to be truthful, going beyond tolerance and reaching for acceptance. I will hold on to hope and try to allow Yemaya to help us listen and love each other better.
