 On Beauty: or why Zadie Smith’s comments aren’t about you – Makeup isn’t bad, being made to feel like you are required to wear make up (or look a certain way in order to be beautiful) is.

Beth from Little Red Tarot shared a great post on activism and how to help with all the shit going on right now:  No One Way Works.

Found this courtesy of Asali: 8 Witches and Healer POC to follow online.  I’m always glad to find more diverse voices to read.  The more we know!

Also from the lovely Asali – some more #Tarot of the QTPOC to look out for, that Fairytale one took my breath away, it’s so lovely!  It’s going on my wishlist!

 Liz Worth shares the decks that she works with.  I always love hearing what decks other readers are using and why they love them.  It’s such an enriching experience and gives me great perspective on why I love the decks that I do.

Oh MAN, I REALLY want to see the Wrinkle in Time movie!!!  It features a brown girl as the protagonist in a sci fi movie, YES PLEASE.  A second article: The Reason Publishers Rejected A Wrinkle in Time Is the Same Reason That Ava DuVernay Is Making the Movie.

Ivan Ambrose shared a post about Racism in Tarot, and I agree with Beth from LRT who said that everyone should read it.  Also a note: if your reaction is something along the lines of “I can’t believe that happens, that’s awful.”  I encourage you to follow that thought up with “What can I do to help stop it from continuing?”  Racism in our communities isn’t a problem for people of color to deal with, we’re all responsible to take steps to support the marginalized folks in our communities.  ❤
