The Mermaid and The Crow: Ritual Oils New Faves and Old Friends!

posted in: Uncategorized | 0


For my new #QueensInExile, you may not know this, but I have a shop!  Jow and I do live shows in the NY/NJ/PA area where I sign books, sling tarot and sell ritual oils and handspun/hand dyed yarn.  My next show is NYC Pagan Pride, for your reference.  I’m hella lazy about updating my yarn section on Etsy because I tend to sell more of it at live shows, but if you let me know that you love yarn, I will prolly be more motivated then to update it on Etsy.  Right now I only do Tarot in person mostly again due to laziness, but I could potentially be swayed if there was enough interest.


Don’t worry, traditionalists!  We kept many of your old favorites including Road Opener, High John, Star of VenusGentlemen for Jupiter, Ladies for Luna, Jadis, and Black Swan.
