I’m excited to announce that Divine Muses has partnered with One Tree Planted to plant a tree for every deck order!
Starting with the second edition releases of the Divine Muses Oracle, Lua Tarot, and Lua Lenormand decks last month. If you purchased a deck in July, your order went to planting a tree!
This organization gives me so much hope! One of the biggest news of the year for them was their partnership with the Jane Goodall Institute to plant 3 million trees in the Albertine Rift Forest of Uganda to help protect the chimpanzee habitat!
They partner with many organizations all over the world, including those restoring the Oregon and California forests devastated by wildfires. Which has been completely heart-breaking to witness, as they get worse every year.
So, all orders from July will go to plant trees in Oregon due to this devastation. Oregon is near and dear to my heart, as it has been my home for over 20 years.
We all know that the climate crisis is big and it may sometimes feel as though one tree won't make much of a difference, but it does! Putting all those trees together creates forests to benefit people, nature, and wildlife for years to come.
One can feel helpless in the face of all this, but small actions can and do make a difference.
It lifts my spirit to say, for every order that includes a deck, Divine Muses will plant a tree for you!
One Tree Planted is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to global reforestation. They plant trees to restore nature and biodiversity. They also raise awareness about the importance of trees, offer businesses like mine a simple sustainability solution, and motivate younger generations to do something positive for the environment.

Full Moon is exact tonight at 8:31pm PT (11:31pm ET). This Moon’s influence is under Scorpio, which is associated with the Tarot’s Death card—the Child of the Great Transformers, and the Lord of the Gate of Death.
Scorpio’s ruling planet is Pluto and Pluto stations Retrograde tomorrow (1:03pm PDT) for 6 months.
ALSO: The USA has been in the thick of its first Pluto Return, currently 26° Capricorn (within 1° orb of US’s natal Pluto).
Pluto Return is a rare transit, it happens ONCE every 247 years. When astrologers talk about it, it’s often in reference to an event, or in this case, the USA’s founding (July 4, 1776). Its Pluto Return will be exact on Feb 20, 2022.
If you’re interested in reading more what Pluto Return means for the USA, I wrote more in depth about it in this post.
I’ll just say quickly here that Pluto transits are powerful times, which are evolutionary, intense, transformative, and healing.
It has not been easy, but Pluto transits rarely are. Pluto offers evolutionary shifts. It can be emotional and intense times, and even destructive, but his archetype is Death AND Rebirth. It’s Transformational AND Cyclical.
Pluto is known as the Great Redeemer, but as god of the underworld, he forces the death of old paradigms. Teaching us the lessons of Death: to let die what must die, so something new in its place can seed, grow, and live fully.
