Hi! I’m Jess, a Chaos Witch with a passion for tarot reading, necromancy, writing, and magick through art and artistic expression.
I do what I do out of a love of sharing magick with others and helping those that are looking for down to earth and practical ways to work with modern witchcraft. I find the idea that magick is only meant for a special few so frustrating because we all hold magick within us. Anyone can successfully work with witchcraft! You don’t need to be born a witch or raised in a family of witches. All you need is a willingness to learn, a passion for using magick to improve your life, and the commitment and dedication to walk this path every day.
If that’s you and you’re new here, welcome!
It’s awesome to have you here. I wanted to create a space to help you learn a bit more about me, what I do, and what you’re going to find when you read my blog, follow me on social media, or dive into any of my ebooks, courses, and other content I create.
First…learn more about me!
I’ve been exploring the world of spirituality and magick for 30 years. I read tarot professionally for 20 years until October of 2018 when I decided to retire from that work. I started my path studying Wicca and practicing Scott Cunningham style solitary Wicca. I did a self-dedication at age 13 under a full moon around the Summer Solstice in 1988. Since then I’ve trained as a high priestess and have degrees in a few traditions including Third Degree in The Temple of Witchcraft Tradition and Second Degree in the Cabot Tradition as well as having taken initiations in shamanism. I’ve also been certified in other practices like Usui Reiki, tarot reading and counseling, angel healing, and paranormal research.
I began sharing my take on magick and experiences as a witch through the internet in 1995 when I become an absolutely annoying presence in the chatrooms on AOL. If you were a born again Christian and you went into a religious debate room, you were sure to find me there waiting to argue with you. I was 20 and felt I had something to prove I guess. Today I don’t care what anyone believes, I only care that you don’t try to change my beliefs unless I ask you to.
You won’t find anything here trying to convince you to be a witch or to be a witch like me. What you’ll hopefully find is inspiration for your own journey.
I’ve had a crazy personal life that’s shaped my journey involving everything from being dirt poor living in an illegal apartment with no heat or gas, being really well off living in a resort style home in California, being so depressed I didn’t get out of bed for four months, being addicted to drugs, and being super high on life alone. And then in 2018 things took a turn and my finances and health took another dip after moving to Las Vegas. I don’t know what it is about Vegas but it will suck out your soul and turn your life upside down it seems! The pandemic of 2020 caused me to put my whole business and my creative work on hold since my personal life was going through some upheaval. At the beginning of 2021 I got divorced after 14 years of marriage. Minerva (my little black cat who you’ll often see on my Instagram) and I moved back to my home state of Connecticut, met my soulmate after a few months being back (through a dating app, no less) and now I’m back to work, witching it up and helping other connect to their inner magick!

Let Me Explain What I’m About…
Most of us hold back from using our power and many of us actually have fear around embracing it. Let’s be honest, once you realize how much power you actually have you lose all excuses for not making changes in your life and that scares the shit out of people. But wild witchery is also about actual magick. Witchcraft; doing rituals and working spells, harnessing your power and focusing it to address your needs and doing it without excuses. I’m a chaos witch so my approach to magick that you’ll find is different from that of other witches that might practice specific traditions like Wicca. I embrace doing magick from different traditions and different paths and using those traditions to inspire the creation of my own magick. I believe in the power of found gods, the collective unconscious energy behind pop culture, and the power of aesthetic and symbolism and using it to manifest our intentions.
Spirituality is not meant to be dictated by a book or another person. Daring Spirituality means we are our own gurus and we create our path with the Divine. We dare to create our own rules about a connection with the Source, relationship with the Divine and what name and face we give it, and how we co-create this spirituality with the Universe. For me, as a chaos witch, I use magick and witchcraft from many traditions, creating my own beliefs, traditions, and path that changes often. I feel that as someone that is not part of a traditional religion or specific witchcraft tradition that there is no reason for me to have self-imposed limits on my beliefs, so things can get a little weird and wild in my world of witchery.
Make Your Own Magick
One of the most frustrating things for me to watch with my clients and people that I connect with on social media is the way so many people feel they have no choice but to follow traditions and practices that have been laid out for them by other people. Over the years of working with my coaching clients, I discovered that so many of them felt they were failing at their practice and their spells weren’t working because they were basically following someone else’s practice and not their own. Don’t get me wrong, tradition is great! But instead of trying to force yourself into a tradition that doesn’t totally fit you, it’s better to create a practice that actually fits your life and your beliefs. It’s important to me to encourage my readers, followers, and clients to find the confidence and knowledge they need to create their own spells, rituals, and magickal path.
Make Your Own Magick, Create Your Own Future!
is to help curious mystics and would-be modern witches find ways to use practical magick and spiritual techniques that work for them and fit into their busy, everyday lives. Through my blog posts, social media, digital products, and private witchcraft mentoring I help them gain knowledge and inspiration to get in touch with their inner witch to become spellcasters and magickal magnets who can find their path and follow it with confidence.

You’ll also find that I share posts about my personal life and my other interests. One of the reasons that I like to do this is, for off I just love to write and share my thoughts. But I love to share my experiences in life as a whole, not just in the world of witchcraft. I’m not just a witch! I’m a writer, an artist, a wife, a cat mom, a gamer, a ukulele nerd, a collector of tarot and oracle cards, a horror movie fanatic, a true crime fan, and much more. In the past I found that when I only focused on just talking about magick on my blog I would quickly stagnate and then not blog for months at a time. Now I approach my blog as an all encompassing place for me to express myself in all things, witchery and then some.
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 have around me, so that is how I approach all my content whether it’s a blog post or a course.

Every day magick should be super easy, barely an inconvenience (anyone else watch Screen Rant on YouTube?)! But the biggest problem for most people seems to be finding ways to fit witchcraft into their busy daily lives. I get asked all the time “How do I make witchcraft part of my daily life?” And sometimes I even get asked “What does it mean to be a witch all the time, every day? Do you do spells on a daily basis?” That’s why I created The Daily Witch Planner, so you can stop wondering what daily witchcraft is and stop worrying that you’re not making enough time for witchery! The best part is this is printable and undated so it’s perpetual. You’ll be able to use it literally forever!
