The Black Madonna tarot deck




In my research and pilgrimages to the Black Madonna, I found that one of Her most important messages can be summed up by these words of Albert Einstein :

A human being is part of the whole called by us 'universe', a part limited in time and space.  We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest.  A kind of optical delusion of consciousness.  This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us.  Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.  The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self.  We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive.

The stories of the Black Madonnas are some of the oldest that we have.  Many of these statues were hidden for hundreds of years to escape destruction by the many rulers and patriarchs that passed through the lands.  But she has a consistent story and message to tell.

If you are interested in following the development of the deck, please subscribe to this blog.  There is a tag (Black Madonna tarot deck) at the top of the blog where you will find the posts on the Black Madonna tarot deck as they are posted.

    1. Hi Eve I think the best way to follow is on the Google app - I have moved it to the top on the sidebar - that way it will appear in your Google feed - for now I will blog on the journey with the Black Madonna on this blog; maybe later I will create a separate blog blessings Hettienne
