Santa Muerte enters the field – 01

First new moon 2021 january, confronting the difficult beginning of this year:
still in lockdown, facing the siege of the capitol, a world going mad!
I have committed myself to working with the Grim Reaper for a month, proceeding carefully…her presence has been haunting me since my childhood when my grandfather died.
After reading the Masque of the Red Death, I became confinced that Death was a Lady wearing a red dress.
Imagine my surprise when I discovered Santa Muerte in Red!
Where to begin? There are several groups and documents online and offline, but for now I will start with the visual meditations.

  • Wellcome the Santa Muerte Oracle deck from Fabio Listrani!
  • Light a candle
  • Offer tobacco

Unboxing: Opening the booklet, looking at the cards…

I will start with the last card: Santa Muerte
the oracle says:
“…this card invite us to accept any change, transformation or drastic severing of perspective with a smile”…”make a firm decision on what to cut and what to change in your life”

My response: OUCH! this is a real challenge, to cope wtih the current pandemic and political upheaval in the world!
