My name’s Cynthia. Welcome to my witchcraft and tarot blog! I’m a practicing witch and I started learning the craft when I was thirteen years old. I’ve never looked back. Around that time, I bought my first tarot card deck, and I’ve been reading the cards ever since. In fact, Wicca and Tarot are my two favorite subjects. Hence, the name of this website.
I have two fur babies, Moon and Magic. They are cats who are spoiled rotten, not familiars, despite their names.
I am a voracious reader and I love paranormal romances, as well as urban fantasy. Most of the time, you can find me with a book in my hand. My two favorite authors are Karen Marie Moning and Laurell K. Hamilton.
I’m also a fan of sci-fi, fantasy, and supernatural themed shows. Current favorites are The Originals, Timeless, Doctor Who, Supernatural, and The Flash. Past favorites include Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The Vampire Diaries. You’ll see references to these all over this website. I know The Craft and Practical Magic don’t portray witchcraft accurately, but I grew up on those movies, so I love them anyway. They’re problematic faves.
I have a degree in counseling and I use the tarot for personal development. It’s a useful tool to learn more about myself and those around me. I think we are good at ignoring our intuition, the little voice inside which is whispering to us all the time. Tarot is a wonderful way to get in touch with your inner self, the wise woman within.
I identify as a Wiccan. It’s both a religion, and a way of life. Not everyone who practices Wicca, adheres to the spiritual aspects of the craft. And that’s absolutely fine. One of the fantastic things about belonging to an unorganized religion (disorganized?) , is the freedom from doctrine. In many ways, it is a personalized religion, focused on self-awareness and becoming the very best version of yourself.
My personal deity is Diana, Goddess of the Moon and the Hunt. My name, Cynthia, literally means “moon” and it’s Greek in origin. Mount Cynthus is the birthplace of Artemis, the Greek version of Diana.
I hope you find some useful information here in your journey of self-discovery and personal growth. I look forward to learning more about you.
Until we merry meet again…
