What is Caritas?
The word "charity"
entered the English language through the Old French word
"charité" which was derived from the Latin "caritas". In Latin caritas originally meant:
1. Esteem, love and affection.
2. Preciousness, dearness, high price.
To these definitions, we will add
3. A gift of spirit.
Those who donate -
Your reading becomes a link in the chain of giving, brightening the
spirit and uplifting yourself and others.
Those who receive a free or discounted reading -
You are asked to pay this gift of spirit forward in some way - it could be sharing a warm smile or a season of giving back on your part. The amount of charitable kindness that you put into the world in exchange for what you receive is up to you.
What is important is the idea of balanced action. Giving to others promotes further good works, thereby maintaining an energetic balance in the world. The intention of Caritas Tarot is to promote ideas of gratitude, compassion, sharing, balance and giving, not only on this site, but also in every aspect of life.
