How This Magic Life Was Born

What started out as weekly meeting for Yolanda, Sally and London to study Tarot together, turned into an opportunity to share all of the things that we love with all of you. This Magic Life was born out of our desire to share our passion for skin care, beautiful products and a nurturing, supportive environment with our community. We wanted a place to bring together all the things that we love about our craft and offer the sort of services that we love to experience. We are excited to share with you all of our favorite products and items to make your life more magic.

Regina Coney

Tarot Reader

Regina has been a student and practitioner of Tarot for many years and we are excited to have her reading with us at This Magic Life.

She enjoys using the cards as a form of meditation and working with her clients to help them find their own clarity in their lives. Regina is in alignment with our belief at This Magic Life that Tarot is not a tool to "tell the future with"; it is an opportunity for us to take a moment and consider where we have been, where we are now, and where we are headed. She is excited to facilitate moments of connection and awareness with her clients and get them inspired to live their best life. 

 

Bruja

Tarot Reader

Bruja was immediately captivated by the first tarot deck she was gifted by a loved one in 2014 and since then both her fondness for this ancient art and her oracle deck collection have grown great amounts. She aims to reclaim her own authenticity and aid others in that same path through the healing these messages can bring. This woman’s work is to help dismantle the webs of an old white supremacist patriarchal society by encouraging her community in slowly building a new and more resilient paradigm through courage, inner work and manifestation.
