Mystical Background

In addition to my creative pursuits, I’m a tarot reader, astrologer and strega. I can help you find the insight you need into whatever troubles you, and create spells with real power to change your life.

That’s the short version. Here’s the skinny.

From Melissa, the Student…

I’ve been a practitioner in the divination arts since I was a teenager in small-town New Jersey, when I first developed a curiosity for how the moon and stars can light the way on our path through life. I began to study traditional, Greco-Roman Astrology and delved into various forms of witchcraft (including Egyptian Witchcraft, Gardnerian Wicca, Dark Paganism and my own inherited Stregheria), forging my own Solitary path along the way.

But it wouldn’t be until I was 25 that I first picked up a pack of Rider-Waite Tarot cards, out of blatant curiosity. The pictorial images “called” to me, you see. After years of keeping it to myself, and learning the interpretation of the cards in quiet, contemplative solitude, I finally began my first series of readings in a mental health facility, advising those who were most deeply troubled on how they could turn their lives around, using the power of the Tarot. The results–as I was frequently told–were “scarily accurate.” Those who had wanted to know what lay in store for them came back to me to thank me for helping them.

Today, I still carry my background in astrology with me, as well as my work in spellcraft, my research into dream interpretation, and my studies of Eastern philosophy. It takes a lifetime to become skilled enough to separate truth from illusion, and visions of the future from flights of fancy.

…to Melissa, the Mystic

Now that I’m in my mid-thirties, and after twenty years of honing my skills, I have finally come forth from the shadows to offer aid and education to you, the person reading this. You have come to this page seeking knowledge, and I am here to provide it.

I have one policy in giving my readings and in educating others in the magickal arts: No Bullshit. That means no mealy-mouthed, sugar-coated beating around the proverbial bush. Just think of me as your tough Italian aunt, who treasures you but won’t just sit around and let you screw up your life.

If you order an individual reading and tell me your troubles, I will help you discover the path ahead of you, and the choices you can make to live your best life. Stop being a victim of Fate and take control of your life with help from the mystical knowledge I have at my disposal.
