~Hello I am Tempest~
A few things to please keep in mind. I do not do tarot or any divinitory readings for people on this site, unless I feel it is something that is important and in most every case I will go to the person myself. Unless you know me, PLEASE DO NOT ASK FOR READINGS OF ANY SORT. I do not have the time to do a reading for every person that contacts me, so I am selective.
ANY MAIL SENT TO ME WITHOUT A SUBJECT WILL NOT BE READ.
PLEASE DO NOT MESSAGE ME IF YOU ARE UNDER 18 YEARS OF AGE I WILL NOT WORK WITH YOU.
GOOGLE IS YOUR BEST FRIEND, TRUST ME.
I am married for 18 years to a wonderful man that I love dearly. I am proud of that considering what we went through to get to where we are now.
I feel there is a lot to be said about Jung's theory of the Collective Unconscious, and the archetypes he presents.
The Fibanocci Spiral fascinates me to no end. As it has no beginning and no end and is constantly reaching further into the inner and outer, to and from itself.
I work mainly with sigils, staves, tarot, some herbalism and numbers magicks, and various divining methods, as well as animal spirit medicine, runes, and other symbols. I've been practicing for close to three decades now. I've had premonitions, I see spirits and auras and various energies. I also work with weather and nature and elemental spirits, among other things. I believe in a balance of light and dark, as one cannot exist without the other. I believe that the future is malleable and impermanent until it becomes the past.
I also work hard to remember that all magick makes ripples; cause and effect, whether positive or negative, inwardly or outwardly, whether you can perceive the ripples or not, they are there.
Most recently I am practicing with my Thoth deck and black scrying mirror and researching iconography within Hinduism :D
I have devoted myself to the Goddess Kali. . If you are curious about Her I have some creation stories attached to images in my photos :)
If you are curious about Kali this is a good site for the basics:

~Congratulations if you made it this far!~
This will be a section of my bio where I will put bits of wisdom that I have collected in many forms:
A little story about Personal Perspective~
The see-er is never the object but is always the subject. There were ten monks travelling to the Himalayas, and as they travelled they experienced many things. Each day they would each take a different path, but always meet in a pre chosen place along the path each night. As night would fall they would count to make sure they all made it. The head monk counted every time. After a long and tiring day he counted the people around him; 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9.. There were only 9 people around him. So another monk tried counting the others around him; 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9... There were still only 9 monks to count other than himself . "other than himself" That was the 10th person, the subject or the one counting. When we live our lives, moving around from activity to activity, from thought to thought, to thoughts of God, we often lose sight of the subject or ourselves. You are part of the story. You observe and experience. Do not forget that.
A Poem about Kali~
"The All Mother"
I am the all mother
The One whom with which you sit
With which you walk
With which you breathe
This breath you take I give you
Take it in through your ear
This water of life
Let the halahala seep from you
I am the Devi Mother?
I drink it from My dear Shiva?s throat
As I will take it from you
You will be free of it
Torn from your subtle bodies
In waves in which I speak
