Deadwick’s Ethereal Emporium


If you’re near Portsmouth, New Hampshire and you’d like to book an in-person tarot OR astrology reading, come see me at Deadwick’s Ethereal Emporium. Tucked away on Sheafe Street, Deadwick’s is one of those “if you know, you know” kind of places…

To book ahead, you can call the shop at 603-319-6946. Ask to book with Cara: that’s my shop name — and the Irish word for ‘friend.’ :-) Walk-ins also welcome.

But wait, there’s more! I’ll be teaching a 4-part Astrology 101 series at Deadwick’s every Tuesday evening in May.

The Lady in the Moon


If you’re closer to Portland, Maine, you can also find me at The Lady in the Moon, a metaphysical gift shop with a witchy aesthetic in Monument Square. I’ve been reading at Lady in the Moon since June 2021, and I just love the vibe of the shop and the folks who come in.

I think you’ll love it too. Come check it out! Book ahead or just walk in.

Tarot only for now, but astrology readings coming soon!

Third spaces


I believe in third spaces ! ! !  If you want to meet up in my current stomping grounds, let’s grab coffee in Dover, New Hampshire and I’ll read your cards or chart!

First, review my tarot offerings here and astrology offerings here. Then check your schedule for a Thursday or Sunday and shoot me an email:

The Spiral Temple & beyond

In addition to my work as a tarot reader & astrologer, I have facilitated sacred circles both online through my project The Spiral Temple and in person at Embodied Directions Wellness Sanctuary in Dover. Although I am not currently active in either of these spaces, this work remains near and dear to my heart.

I hold circle in the spirit of the priestess arts: the modern recuperation of the largely untold legacy of ancient Feminine and Earth-based spiritual practices, womb wisdom, and worship of the Great Mother and the Goddess in Her many faces.

I believe that this work, when offered as explicitly feminist and decolonial praxis, literally has the power to change the world, as we heal from centuries of capitalist and patriarchal abuse. In the past I have held trans-inclusive space for women and nonbinary folks where we occasionally center the experience of living in a female body. Ultimately, however, I believe that a conscious re-membering of the Mother is for all people, regardless of biology or gender identity.

I owe so much not only to the amazing women who have been my teachers, but also to the robust communities that they have cultivated.

Most recently, in 2021, I completed 13 Moons, a yearlong program in Earth-based shamanic work led by Jonah Ruh Roberts and Una Gallagher in western NH.

Before that, I’d begun spending time with Priestess Presence — an online/etheric temple in the tradition of the mytho-historical Avalon — after sitting in circle with Dianne Chalifour at Earth Harmony Wellness here in Dover in 2019.

The following year, I completed the Temple Guide Training with Priestess Presence focalizer Elayne Kalila Doughty and began holding my Spiral Temple circles at Lughnasadh 2020.

If you are intrigued by this path, a great place to start is the 13 Moon Oracle Cards by Ariel Spilsbury, the “fairy godmother” of Elayne Kalila and the Priestess Presence lineage.

I know I’ll hold temple circles again someday. In the meantime, you can sign up for my newsletter below to keep track of other community events and tune into my Musings along the Wheel of the Year.

Stay in the loop.
