About Me

 

My name is Rachel Anne Williams and this is my blog about Tarot, magic, metaphysics, divination, the occult, High Strangeness, ufology, esoterica, etc. This website originally started with a focus on just the Tarot but I realized that my interests are far too diverse to be subsumed under a single topic.

My approach to spirituality is extremely eclectic. I draw from systems such as gnosticism, Western Hermeticism, Qabalah, chaos magic, Christianity, Norse Paganism, witchcraft, Thelema, Taoism, etc. If I were forced to apply a label to myself, I suppose I would call myself an esoteric jack-of-all-trades.

One might say it’s impossible to make all these different systems cohere into a single, logical system. And that’s true. But here I can only quote Walt Whitman’s poem, Song of Myself:

Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.)

Other facts about me:
