In the New Orleans Voodoo Tarot, Erzulie rules the seventh vessel, representing the elemental forces of fire, water, and air along with Goddess Oshun as the earthly manifestation. All four energetic depictions deal with hot and cool emotional states. There is no right or wrong value nor judgment made here in the characteristics regarding hot and cool.
Erzulie is the Voodoo Loa for deep love concerning all women, children, and of the oppressed. Manifested as Erzulie La Flambeau, she is a fierce protector, and Queen of the Petro Nation readily holding her two daggers in both hands with blood-stained eyes. Her moods can travel, ranging to a place of great pleasure or a road of destruction leading to misery.
"The weekly rituals in tribute to my ancestors and the warrior Orishas required that I stop and focus on my spiritual growth, setting aside, for those moments, other parts of my life."
The New Orleans Voodoo Tarot is practiced to celebrate and honor the West African Loa and Orisha in great continuity of ache. This will be an introduction to my Voodoo Tarot Spiritual Readings and guidance to relatable tools in divination for clients. This Spiritual path has directed me toward a rich source of divine ancestry and to gain a better understanding of the Spiritual forces that always surround us.
One notable difference between the New Orleans Voodoo Tarot and traditional tarot is that the elemental force Earth is in no way categorized as being inferior to the other elements. Similar to the traditional tarot, the New Orleans Voodoo Tarot deck makes total use of the Tetragrammaton model and its four elemental attributes. The western elements of earth, air, fire, and water correspond to the four Nations or Voodoo traditions.

Fully Make Sense of Your Purpose in Life!
A lot of the time, the Spirit & the physical-self are at odds within frequency levels where the Spirit is always connected in communication, but the physical-self is unable to pick-up on this relationship, due to that individual’s low vibrational energy & frequency from the lack of knowledge of self.
For instance, a person is awakened by the light of day onto their purpose most days, spreading good vibes (love) within each space. This particular frequency is unbothered by a negative lowered rate of occurrences. Therefore, he or she are guided through the day with positive affirmations transcribed from the divine (Spirit). Those that are led by worry & doubt are unfortunately living out a mundane experience with layered negative vibrations covered in fear of the necessary risks that are warranted in their lives that will lead to gratitude (happiness) & freedom.
To strive for self-freedom by the means of the soul, that which produces light will redirect negative vibrations from your space. One can practice by first mastering your positive inward actions with the necessary outward duties. In this way, it is well met with one another where the foundation remains Spiritually bonded. This is what separates most people from elevating in consciousness, which is to stay on their purpose in life. Consequently, when you represent the self with fear, it is boxed into your mind like a trap, & is immediately mimicked by the space around you
Protection Tip #2
Adjoining Self-Actualization &Affirm a Positive Environment
Most of you are present here reading this because you are familiar with the body’s energy fields, such as the aura & chakra system that are referred to as the “light bodies”. Negative frequencies can affect you more easily if the subtle (light) bodies are disharmonized or underactive.
Light bodies operate on a different plane of reality based on the self-actualization of being. As it does operate outside of the limitations of gravity & speed of light, whereas the physical body’s very function is completely reliant on the formation of dense mass giving you a false illusion about life, therefore yourself included. The more work that is focused towards the advancement of the subtle bodies, the better transmission of higher knowledge of self, environment & so-on-&-so-forth readily available.
You can also affirm a positive environment in your personal space that will subconsciously travel with you wherever you journey off to throughout your days in life. One way to produce light in your home is to fill the space with cultural ancestry pieces. Cultural ancestry pieces are visual reminders of our living elders & transitioned ancestors symbolizing prosperity, enlightenment, and protection.
In the form of artwork, pottery, statues, framed letters, photographs, personal items or whatever calls for your attention in their daily recognition. Cultural ancestry pieces are important, for as you form your individual reality, the reminiscence of ancestry will protect you from the outer forces that do not serve you well in life.
They are your inner-guidance, a vessel & support in all earthly things. Our Ancestors believed that the heart is the Gateway to our Higher Self. They recommended that we check our hearts daily to be sure that we maintain this high spiritual state of Maat consciousness, for it is through Maat that every yoke that oppresses will be broken. Remain in an active state of meditation so that Spirit may continue to reveal to us the divine plan of all circumstances (Afua, 2000).
For additional defense, utilize diet ( an eating lifestyle) & exercise as a supreme catalyst for protecting the Spirit from negative energy. Food is medicine because it forms mental thought & clarity by what you ingest, you literally are what you eat. Just as diet, physical exercise with consistency allows for an individual to feel good about themselves sending negative vibes to detour.

~Reality in Consciousness
In order to comprehend where one is headed toward in life, that individual has to understand the history of the land in which they stand on today. This is a reminder to the current and on-going circumstances that is deeply rooted inside of our communities, and by with this information, we can see that the solutions have always been here, but it is up to you to discover your past, present and near future to help revive our communities to a whole.
Miss-educated on the works of my ancestor’s past and present-future, before they were enslaved in the Americas still appears to be concealed in modern times today. The highlighted history of choice, chattel slavery, and as it is vagrantly established in February every year is still celebrated. Furthermore, museums in the Americas conveniently depict this “group” of “race” as enslaved savages, “born” free after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed in 1863 and documented on the U.S Census Bureau as flesh and blood in 1870. Are we symbolically being informed that prior to the enslavement, it is not worth the time to represent us holistically well and as the first “higher society” race/culture?
After re-learning the miss-education up to the university level, it was absolutely imperative for me to conduct my own research regarding my great ancestors, so that I may reveal their resilience to pass down to the generations to come after me.
With this ambition, they have shown me their great works still being applied today with the start of cultures and civilizations, evolved systems of government and systems of philosophy, theology, geography, math, language, writing, astrology, science, medicine, religion and so on and so forth.
Progress is made with resistance and is Continuous!
Upon my research through history, the celebration once called Jubilee, now formally titled Juneteenth has stirred thoughts on two separate testimonials that are being related today by black historians and the indigenous people of America called Washitaw Nation that I think you will find interesting to know.
Let’s begin with the most recognizable story of the Juneteenth celebration-
**There has always been recorded resistance toward the European colonizers by our ancestors in Africa and on the Americas soil against their enslavement. Meanwhile, unconsciousness is still very prominent today by those who choose to not research such intellectual properties produced by Dr. John Henrik Clark, a historian scholar in order to free your mind today. We did not wait for a bill nor a new law to be formally signed for our freedom, which is the misconception of the masses which lead to their dormant. Plus, most of us were already here on America’s soil before its desecration***
1831 | Nat Turner leads an uprising; more than 50 white people are killed.
1847 | Fredrick Douglas launches the anti-slavery newspaper, The North Star
1850 | The Fugitive Slave Act, a law passed by the U.S congress, allows the capture and return of slaves to their owners.
1852 | Harriet Beecher Stowe publishes Uncle Tom’s Cabin, a best-selling novel and the major influence on the anti-slavery movement.
1857 | The Supreme Court decision that Dread Scott was a slave, not a citizen, and could not sue in a federal court
1861 | The confederate bombardment of Fort Sumter in South Carolina marked the beginning of the U.S Civil War
1863 | Abe Lincoln, the 16th U.S president, issued the Emancipation Proclamation decreasing an end to slavery
1865 | February 1st, Abe Lincoln signs the 13th Amendment to the U.S Constitution outlawing slavery in the U.S
The impressive legislative achievements of this period include the Thirteenth Amendment, abolishing slavery (besides state prisoners- my emphasis); The Civil Rights Act of 1866, bestowing full citizenship upon African-Americans; The Fourteenth Amendment, prohibiting states from denying citizens due process and “equal protection of laws”; The Fifteenth Amendment; Providing that the right to vote should not be denied on account of race; and the Klu Klux Klan Acts, which, among other things, declared interference with voting a federal offense and the violent infringement of civil rights a crime (2010,2012 Alexander).
1865 | June 19th, two years after the Emancipation Proclamation, enslaved African-Americans in Texas finally receives news of their emancipation
1866 | the first Juneteenth celebration was brought about in Texas for remembrance with events such as, political speeches, sporting events, fireworks, parties, symbolic walk, and more. By 1870, 50 freedom colonies were in Texas cities and had purchased land to hold these celebrations.
By the early 1900s | Juneteenth’s vibrant energy had spread and reached across states.
1936 | Antonio Smith, head of Dallas Negro Chamber of Commerce was declined permission by the state to construct a mural dedicated to the Juneteenth celebration at the state fair grounds. Smith obtained a grant anyways and developed “The Hall of Negro Life” where 46,000 African-Americans participated at the state fair grounds.
1800s | a nation of indigenous people took the U.S to court. The Washitaw set out to prove land sold during the Louisiana Purchase did not belong to France, Spain, nor the U.S.
The rightful owners were the Washitaw De Dugdahmoudyyah-
Heirs of Nat Turner vs. U.S. The land known today as Washitaw property or Ouchita (Poverty Point) Louisiana, just outside of Monroe was returned to its rightful owners. The date the Washitaw heard their case had been won was June 19th, 1848, 15 years before the Emancipation Proclamation. Slave owners in the south decided to “share” the news of freedom to those they enslaved to offset the victory of the Washitaw Nation, the oldest recognized people on the North American continent. For more information, click Here: --> Washitaw De Dugdahmoudyyah
Remove the Distraction
As you come to your own conclusions to whether or not if your ancestors were already here in the Americas long before the Europeans had arrived, or to remember the ancestors who were emancipated in the year of 1863 and/or both. Where I stand, the ignorance of the reader will blindly celebrate just one small piece of history served by those who “control” this narrative regardless of the shame without discovering his/her own past. The police-shootings, and outright racism against the African people today still being perpetuated in society is to distract you from the greatness of the ancestors who you’ve forgotten about. So, then please do yourself and the community a great virtue and study your history outside of “history”.
Be Well & Heal in Peace…. Peace!
