A few new spiritual necklace designs


Four new mala-style long beaded necklaces have been added to the shop, each one $40 plus shipping, featuring gemstone beads individually hand-knotted on waxed Irish linen in my usual style. These can be worn as necklaces (they are long enough to slip easily on and off over the head), used in meditation to count your breaths or a mantra, or for adding extra beauty and bling to your altar, sacred space, or a sacred statue.

My supply of beads is not plentiful right  now, so these sorts of pieces will be emerging only when I can afford to make them! These are just the result of sifting through my stash, and I honestly haven’t yet decided whether to try to make them a regular thing again. Since I am using up beads, only one is available of each design and at this point they are not repeatable. (So if you like something here, grab it while you can!)



Readings are back in the shop!


Now that I’ve completed the last of the Year Ahead 2018 Readings I had on my calendar, I’ve restored my three most popular reading options to my Etsy shop:

  1. Deity I.D. – for help and advice in identifying a deity who’s new in your life.
  2. Deity Communication – for sorting things out with either a new-ish deity, or one who you feel you’ve lost touch with.
  3. Custom – 3-6 cards on the topic of your choice: a spread designed just for you, around your specific question!

I also have at least one or two additional spreads in mind that I’ll be debuting fairly soon!

In the meantime, if you missed your chance at a Year Ahead 2018 Reading and would like one, I can probably squeeze a few more of them in before the end of the year! These readings take a look at the overall energy/guiding influence for the coming year as a whole, and then we pick a card for each month of 2018 to give an overview of what you can expect from the new year. You are welcome to name specific areas of concern you would like information on when purchasing your reading. Find out more here.

Meanwhile…A very happy Yule to you and yours!


Beginning in 2005 and continuing for about seven years, I undertook intensive training in oracular seidhr, otherwise known as Northern Tradition trance work and prophecy. This work is aimed not at predicting the future as such, but instead at propitiating and receiving input and advice from the deities, the spirits, and the universe in general, to help us move forward in our spiritual development as well as with our goals in life.

Despite whatever degree of deity input comes through in my intuitive reading of your cards (or not–this is not something I can guarantee), I hold firmly to the concepts of free will and personal choice. Whatever a deity or spirit may say, imply, or not say, I will not ever tell you what you “should” do or what “will” happen; all power of choice remains with you.


– Everything we discuss in connection with your reading is completely confidential and stays between us.

– I will not read for questions concerning health, legal matters, or any other issue that I deem better handled by a licensed professional.

– While I love feedback, I am unable to provide additional insight or clarity on readings for free.  This is usually not an issue with the year ahead readings, but if you feel you really need clarification you can contact me to arrange payment for a follow-up reading.

– I reserve the right to decline a reading and refund payment for any reason.

– I am unable to offer a refund for readings that do not deliver the outcome you expected or desired.

– I will not perform readings concerning the thoughts and feelings of a third person. (In this case, I mean specifically a human person other than yourself who has not consented to having their cards read.)

Holiday Ordering Deadline


Just a reminder: Today is the LAST DAY to place your order at TheWytchoftheNorth on Etsy for guaranteed delivery by December 24th (within the US only)!


Supernatural Inspired Teas!

Brand new in the shop today (finally): my line of Supernatural-inspired tea!

deans pie

Dean’s dream tea–if Dean drank tea, that is! A delicious blend of rooibos and malty Assam teas with a generous helping of freshly dried Granny Smith apples, spiced with cinnamon and ginger and finished off with currants, butterscotch chips, and natural custard flavor.

sams smoothie

Earthy yerba mate blended with energizing matcha, coconut, mango, and a touch of creamy vanilla–just the sort of thing Sam would drink as an afternoon pick-me-up (and that Dean would make fun of him for drinking).

castiels grace

A heavenly mingling of nutty rooibos with delicious coconut and blueberries, soothing lavender, alluring vanilla, and a creamy white chocolate finish.

crowley chai

The perfect blend of rooibos and malty Assam teas, given a kick with just the right amount of ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, and pink peppercorns, and made absolutely delectable with vanilla bean and chocolate. Spicy, nutty, and a little bit wicked–just like our favorite “villain,” the sometime King of Hell!


Virtual Garage Sale: Items Still Available

A home has been found for the Archangel Michael statue, but here are some links to my previous Virtual Garage Sale posts! (Items that have been sold are marked as sold and crossed out; everything else is still available!)


Books (mostly pagan)

Books (Charles De Lint)

Tarot and Oracle Decks

Books (Charles De Lint limited and signed editions)

MOAR Books (a mixture of fiction, pagan, and assorted non-fiction)



Virtual Garage Sale – Book Edition part 2

The gigantic list that follows contains a mixture of fiction and non-fiction books from both of our collections. Links are to Amazon listings for the titles.

In case anyone is wondering, “Wow, what kinds of bills have they got, that they’re selling all this stuff?” We did have about $1300 in medical and utility bills, about $1000 of which has now been paid off due to the incredible generosity of one friend. We have vet visits for two of our cats (Zerk and Luna, both of whom have autoimmune skin conditions that need treating) scheduled for later this month; that should be covered by Jo’s pay but we have no idea how much it will add up to.

Beyond that, due to having consistently been pouring money into Corbie’s meds and vet visits for several years now, we do not have any savings (which is how we got into this financial situation in the first place). So what we are trying to do is save up a $500 emergency fund to be reserved for any further animal emergencies. Once that’s been secured, we will need $300 for a dog adoption fee. This is to adopt a puppy or young dog from a local small dog rescue that includes vaccinations, a health check–although we will also want a new dog seen by our own vet–spay or neuter, plus micro-chipping.

It was incredibly hard for us to resist just going out and adopting someone immediately as soon as some money started coming in, but we’re trying to be responsible and do this right, so that we don’t end up having to beg money from our friends again for some future emergency!

Beyond even that, though, it’s likely the garage sales will continue, because we have a lot of stuff and are hoping to move back to the east coast eventually–so, we really need to pare down!

To everyone who has helped us do this or will help in the future–thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

And now for the books! If anything here interests you, please email Beth at wodandis at gmail dot com and she will give you a total including shipping. Shipping is $5 per book, but if you are buying more than one book we will combine shipping! (For example, if you are getting four books you won’t need to pay $5 shipping per book.) All books will ship via media mail with tracking. We are shipping these only within the domestic US.
