About Jess

Be wild, be daring…

make your own magick and follow your own spiritual path!


I’m Jess Carlson and I’m so glad you’ve found your way here.

Have you ever wondered if witchcraft is real and if magick can actually help you with your life? Did you play with a ouija board at a sleepover and laugh with your girlfriends as you stuck pins in a doll that you said was your ex? Did you buy some tarot cards as a goof at the mall once and then pretend to give your friends readings? And did you think you were just making it all up and you actually surprised someone with accurate information?

Chances are if you’re here, you have, but don’t worry, I have too, and so have a lot of us. 

These are just a few of the little ways we get curious about magick, especially when we were younger. I always say it doesn’t matter how you got here, just that you got here

So hey there! I’m Jess!

I’m an intuitive reader, Witch, blogger, and spiritual teacher who loves helping those looking for knowledge on the magickal and mystical. Helping people learn to harness their inner badass witch goddess {or god} so they can become confident and empowered to take inspired action toward their dreams is what I’m here to do.

You’re especially in the right place if you’re looking for that information to be delivered with a serious dose of honesty and humor. I don’t bullshit, I don’t coddle, and I don’t sugar coat. Witches are strong, self-sufficient, and proactive. Those are the kinds of people I like I work with, and those are the kinds of people who develop out of working with me.

What I Bring To The Table

I got started on my spiritual path around the age of 8 and did my first self-dedication to the Gods on a full moon night shortly after the summer solstice when I was 13. Since then I have explored many different traditions within modern Paganism and new age spirituality and have worked with amazing teachers like Laurie Cabot, Christopher Penczak, Janet Farrar, Raven Grimassi, Doreen Virtue, and others. I’ve spent time studying traditions and practices including Tibetan Buddhism, Odyssean Tradition {trad of the Wicca Church of Canada}, Temple of Witchcraft, Asatru and Norse Paganism, Cabot Tradition, hoodoo, yoga and it’s associated spiritual beliefs and practices, and many others.

All these experiences and studies over the years mean one really great thing for you – I have a lot of knowledge and a lot of hats to pull from to help you learn the magick and spiritual practices you need in a practical and down to earth way.

As of today, my practice is very much one of my own making. I have taken the best parts of my journey and live a bold and daring path of witchcraft and spirituality that suits me. It may not be like what anyone else does, and that’s how it should be!

Your path of the soul is YOURS! It should never be cookie cutter or like anyone else’s. When you’re following someone else’s way, you’re not on your own path anymore.

My Motto


When it comes to what I do…

In 2011 I wrote a book on tarot under my Craft name, Rowan Pendragon.

For 7 years I worked under a “Craft name”, Rowan Pendragon.  I wrote books, taught classes on both coasts and did a bunch of podcasts and radio shows.


Over the years I have helped hundreds of women around the world through coaching, teaching, readings, and healing to get clear on what’s really getting in their way and how to use magick, spiritual practice, and their hidden inner power to get out of their own way and make miracles happen.

If you know you could use a little help like that too, or you’re just hungry for more magick in your life, you can check out my intuitive tarot, oracle, and angel card readings or my digital product shop for ebooks, tools, and self-study courses to unlock that path to magick in your life.

A few places I’ve been featured…

When I’m not writing + tapping into the ethereal realms you can find me…

playing games on my Xbox {often fighting with some 15 yr old kid about the correct usage of flash bangs in Call of Duty}, hanging out at the beach bouncing around in the waves, painting angels and drawing the world in doodle format, hanging out with my husband and our two crazy kitties, obsessing over Pinterest, rewatching Parks & Rec, The Office, Girls, and Silicon Valley over and over. And of course reading and studying areas of spiritual and magickal interest to ramp up my skills and knowledge.
