For several years, the question of cultural appropriation has become central to the fight against racism. The sphere of spirituality, is no exception. Indeed, it is not uncommon to see practitioners and content creators draw inspiration from or outright use practices from other cultures. Each time, the question remains: how to make sure to have the fairest and most honest spiritual practice possible?
As an astrologer, tarologist and popularizer of the mystical arts, I gravitate in this universe for more than 10 years. As you can attest, I'm a white woman and far from an expert on cultural appropriation. On the other hand, I consider it essential to approach this complex subject and that is why I wanted to share with you my experiences, some of my errors as well as the state of my reflections at this stage of my evolution.
Obviously, this is a short summary of a very large subject that deserves to be explored further.
