Damon Stang

A reader of cards and efficacious worker of root, candle, and charm.

At the age of 12, Stang received his first ‘Lenormand Fortune Telling Cards’ from his grandmother (herself a spiritualist, cartomancer and Ouija Board enthusiast) and quickly worked himself up to becoming a passionate scholar of divination with a special focus on Tarot. He trained at street fairs, among Sangoma’s in the Maluti Mountains of South Africa, and in the New York Botanicas of Brooklyn and the Bronx. He is a lifelong practitioner of witchcraft and root work and is a celebrated member of the New York City magickal community.

Damon’s special emphasis is on Urban Folk Magic. He is Magister of Kings County Coven #1 (as featured in the New York Post), an initiate of Lady Rhea, and a member of the Minoan Brotherhood. A reading with Damon incorporates traditional cartomantic prediction, spirit led gnosis, and good old fashioned common sense. Damon believes in the Tarot as a tool of empowerment and transformation and works with his clients to find open roads that bypass obstacles and fatalism.

At the clients request Damon is also available for magickal remediation or coaching. 
$60 / half hour, $80 / hour ; Available in shop on Fridays, or by appointment.

Melissa Madara

Melissa is a folk witch and herbalist with roots in magic on both sides of her family. Her practice combines the Croatian gypsy heritage of her mother and the Pennsylvania Dutch hexerei of her father into a perspective that is syncretic, practical, and deeply rooted in the natural world. She currently serves as a co-owner at Catland books, the manager of Catland's private garden, and an educator on divination, apothecary sciences, and folklore.

In addition to reading tarot, Melissa is also a skilled scryer (water, wax, champagne) and student of Jungian dream analysis, which she often chooses to incorporate into her more in-depth readings. She is also one of Catland's resident apothecaries, and often makes herbal recommendations or preparations as part of her readings. She believes in narrative as therapy, and uses the stories told in the tarot to examine, dissect, and explore the human mind and all of it's questions.

Her style is rooted in finding practical solutions to life's questions, but her consultations are patient, informal, and conversational. Her goal is to set up comfortable space for querents to explore what needs exploring, and leave empowered with tangible solutions.

Aerinn Kolfage

Aerinn is a witch, cunning woman, and urban sorceress who puts a modern twist on European peasant magic and American folk practices. Raised by an intuitive medium deeply immersed in Catholic tradition, Aerinn inherited a fondness for ritual and experienced the closeness of the Otherworld at a young age. From this, she learned the power of tapping into folk spirituality and her ancestral roots. Aerinn’s practice is a pastiche reflecting her history and magical heritage, incorporating saint lore, cunningcraft, plant magic, dreamwork, superstition, and all the diverse witching ways of her foremothers.

She believes in the efficacy of practical magic, divination, and spirit relationships to effect major transformation and address everyday problems. Walking in the steps of the village wise women who came before her, she can help you connect with your purpose, remediate your dis-ease, and achieve your goals through charm, symbol, root and spell.

Spiritual consulting with Aerinn is a synthesis of active listening, creative problem solving, and common sense advice. Through such divinatory techniques as reading cards and tea leaves, casting lots and spirit-revealed insight, she weaves a narrative of sign and image to give you a bird’s eye view of the circumstances surrounding your query. On request, she’ll also equip you with magical remedies and ritual actions to meet your needs and expand your horizons. Armed with this information and in depth analysis, you’ll leave a reading with Aerinn prepared and empowered to take destiny into your own hands.

And remember, if you ask the right questions, you’ll always get the right answers.

Aerinn is available for divination, spellcraft consultations, dreamwork, and magical coaching. She has been featured in Vogue, Teen Vogue, Broadly, and Black Book Magazine and worked with such clients as Coach and Condé Nast.

Haylin Belay

Many of Haylin Belay's tarot clients consider themselves skeptics... and some days, she does, too. But after years of personal practice, the cards have reliably provided insight and guidance on topics both energetic and mundane - and as Haylin is fond of saying, "it doesn't matter if it's real, as long as it's true." Her empathetic reading style, based firmly in the intuition and personal power of the seeker, demystifies the Tarot and is a great fit for first-timers, skeptical seekers, and beginner readers. 

Unlike other professional tarot readers, Haylin works less as a medium, psychic, or spiritual channel, and more as a "tarot doula"; her primary role is to hold space and provide insight into the seeker's individual exploration of their personal power. To that end, seekers are encouraged to touch and manipulate the cards for a truly self-guided experience. Her practice checks and challenges the dogmatic, racist, gender essentialist, and hierarchical barriers to entry that have historically made the craft intimidating or unappealing to potential practitioners. Seekers will leave with clarity about the path ahead and insight into the technology of Tarot.

$60 / half hour, $80 / hour ; Available in shop on Saturdays or by appointment.

Robert Alvarez

Robert Alvarez (also known as Robert Alvarez, the Psychic Witch) has been giving Readings, Metaphysical Classes, Energy Healing Treatments and Mystical Consultations for more than twenty years.  The vast majority of his clients avail themselves of his Intuitive Card Readings, Metaphysical Classes (both group and private), and Energy Healing Treatments.
Robert's approach to Cards is that there are no "good" or "bad" Cards.  In Robert's Readings, he looks at all Cards from the perspective of empowerment versus disempowerment.  For example, "Is this Card indicating a situation that empowers the client?" Robert is committed to telling the client only what he Sees or Senses.  In other words, Robert shall not make up stuff.  If there is something that Robert does not See or Sense clearly, he shall still tell the client that he Sees or Senses, even if it is not clear, at the time of the Reading. Ultimately, Robert's Readings are Empowering and Healing.
Robert is primarily available at Catland, for Intuitive Card Readings, either with the Tarot, or with Oracle Card Decks. 

$70/30 minutes, $90/60 minutes ; Available by appointment

Erica Munoz

Erica is a Gemini Sun- Leo Moon Dominican-American bruja born and bred in Massachusetts, now residing in Brooklyn. A lot of Erica’s influences come from both Latin-American and American magic. She considers herself an eclectic witch with heavy influences of root work and 21 Divisions– also known as Dominican Vudú.

Her first connections with her intuition came through dream work and precognitive dreams as a child. Her ability to get messages from spirit through dreams is what sparked her interest in discovering different methods of divination and connecting with her ancestral roots in Dominican Republic and Latin America. Erica is also a traditionally trained jeweler, so her work is heavily influenced by fire and crystals.

Erica’s goal with reading tarot is to empower and creating a safe space for the querent. Her style of tarot consultation makes use of different tarot & oracle decks and having an open dialog about the topics at hand. After her tarot consultations, Erica likes to provide crystal and spiritual bath recommendations if necessary.

$60 / half hour, $80 / hour ; Available by appointment only
