Rabbit, Rabbit! It's the first of March, and the day and night will be equal in length on March 20! A perfect time to bring more balance into your life.

You make The Four of Wands, THANK YOU!



Changes
We are painting and rearranging for the near future! A new Tarot and Reiki Room is a respite blue, a new area for shopping a bright white. If you've been in lately you know we have a third room open in the shop and thus more space to spread out.

The Community Altars
Interact with your community altar on your right as you enter the shop. When the altar changes all the papers are burned to release our energies into the universe. The far-right corner altar with the Santa Muerte statue and large crystal is a customer-led addition to the shop. The donations left here come back to you exponentially!
