Rebekah Erev is a queer, Jewish, Hebrew Priestess, and feminist artist, and she will be sharing a different divination card with us each month.
This month's card is: # 20 Organize.
Card for the Month: # 20 Organize (Yiddish: or-gan-iz-IR-n)
From the Moon Angels / Malakh Halevanah Cards, a set of divination cards based on the cycle of the moon to help guide your days and nights.
In Judaism feelings are considered angels, so when you have a feeling it's an angel visiting you. Rebekah Erev, the creator of the deck has embraced this non-patriarchial notion of feelings being positive gifts. The cards offer a chance to connect with the cycle of the moon and one’s own intuition which can serve as a guide through emotional states. This deck is as much an oracle deck as an art deck: beautifully designed, locally printed and includes original gouache paintings on each card.
One way to cast spells is to organize. Our ancestors have been doing it for millenia. A spell can be as simple as calling one of your representatives. You can also make magic by attending a protest, working on a committee with an organization you feel passionate about, making art, sending a letter of appreciation and support to your local mosque, or donating money.
Magic is in the framing and intention.
In this time we need all the organizing we can get. It’s about doing it. And doing it again. And going back and doing it again. If we frame our organizing as magic, it will hold that much more power.
Here’s to the magic of organizing with love, for the resistance.
