About Me

Hello! I'm Courtney. Thank you for stopping by!

Hello!

Thank you for visiting my site! My name is Courtney and I am a Wiccan Priestess, writer, Tarot Adviser, and metaphysical teacher living in McMinnville, OR. I am the author of Brigid: History, Mystery, and Magick of the Celtic Goddess and the forthcoming Tarot for One: The Art of Reading for Yourself. I blog on this site as well as for WitchesandPagans.com and Huffington Post. I am also the producer and designer of Tarot of the Boroughs, a contemporary photographic Tarot deck set in New York City.

I am available for Tarot readings by phone or Skype. Please see my Tarot reading page for more information. 

I have been a practicing Witch since my late teens, but have probably been one all along. Wicca, known to many as “A Religion for Witches,” or “The Craft” is a nature-centered faith which accepts the Divine as a blessed mix of genders, not just a “guy in the sky with a big, white beard.” Wicca’s spiritual practices focus on aligning with the changing of the seasons, as well as the solar and lunar cycles. A common creed spoken among Wiccans reads, “An Harm Ye None, Do What Thou Wilt.” While it it is impossible to live one’s life without causing some harm in some way (I had chicken at lunch, after all!), Wiccans believe in following one’s own personal path all the while respecting the paths of others and to do the best we can to live in harmony and balance with other living creatures and our Great Mother Earth.

While I dabbled with the Craft in my teens, on my twentieth birthday, I had a powerful awakening that encouraged me to reach out to a local Grove in my hometown of Portland, OR where I learned the basics of the Craft in a Celtic format with Greek influences.  After college, I moved to New York City to pursue a career in theatre. Just before I left, another powerful sign signaled to my High Priestess, Rev. Cyn deFay, that I ought to pursue Priestesshood.  I joined Lady Cyn’s Cluan-Feart Mystery School, and received ordination as a Priestess of Pan from in 2005. Through the Mystery School, I learned “The Path of the Votary,” an intense format of training for would-be Priests and Priestesses, as well as the finite work of Men’s and Women’s Mysteries. In 2005, I met Janet Farrar and Gavin Bone. Under these two, I have studied Trance Prophecy, chakra work, ecstatic ritual, and the philosophy of Progressive Witchcraft.  In 2008, I received initiation as a Priestess of Brid from Janet and Gavin.

I believe Magick is present in all existence. It’s not something we must seek to find outside of ourselves, but rather unlock from within.

Tarot

I began reading Tarot at the age of 15. Since then, I have gained an international clientele base and teach workshops on the Tarot on both coasts.

My readings are predominantly spiritual in nature. Tarot is a powerful tool of self-reflection. It will never tell you anything you don’t already know…but it gives you the chance to acknowledge it. Can it tell the future? Possibly, but with about as much accuracy as a weatherperson with tomorrow’s forecast! Tarot allows you to examine the patterns under which you are living and can predict a reasonable outcome of future based on as the pattern set, just like your local meteorologist! But just the weather forecast can change or vary wildly, so do life’s events. Tarot can help dress your spirit for the weather of your personal journey but unlike the nightly weather forecast, you can change your destiny. Tarot can show you how.

    Good afternoon I stumbled across your blog , and relate to your card decrypts so well ,
    As you have much experience , I wished to ask a question if I may .
    I started reading Tarot 2 years ago maybe a Little longer after two spiritual people told me I had a gift , My reads are proving popular and my confidence is building , I take the cards & the readings very seriously and I do alway explain my tarot read is a guide to life . Often people I have read for come back to me for advice .
    How do you deal with the feelings of responsibility .?

    If you ever have the opportunity to take a class with Courtney – DO IT! She’ll not only give you a great run down of the “overall-ness” of Tarot, but she’ll teach you how to apply what you learn to yourself.

    Great wisdom there and a fun (and funny) person to learn from.

    It’s about time that people started realizing that Witches and Christians have a lot in common. God created the world and commanded us to respect and look after it. He also said that we may not judge. He also said that we should love, honour and cherish each other. He walked on water. Used sand and spit to make a blind man see. Prayed to His unseen father in heaven. We are very much alike. You pray, love animals, are kind and loving to all people. I for one don’t have s problem with witches. After all I wish our decree could state harm none, do as thy will.

    With lots of love
    Bernadine
