Welcome to my blog the Riddle Fisher
Over the years this blog has changed names and faces and that is a direct result of my many spiritual transformations. So let me reintroduce myself to you, my name is Avalon, I am a practicing Witch. My style of Witchcraft is free, wild and unbridled. I do not subscribe to any particular doctrines or dogmas choosing instead to follow a nature based path that seems to grow organically.
My background is steeped in my family tradition however today, I seem to follow a rather different path. Coming from Umbanda Macumba, I still have a strong link to spirit work, divination and ancestral honoring. However I am now studying Druidry through the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids which I am absolutely loving. I am at present reaching the end of my Bardic grade.
I feel I should also mention that I have a deeply intertwined relationship with Tarot. I am a professional reader and member of Tarosophy Tarot Association. I am very interested in developing my own tarot skills and so I take class after class after class whenever I can. At present I am following a Secret to the Wait Smith Tarot course and it’s blowing my mind.
My passion for tarot has slowly but surely bled into Oracle, I am now an avid collector of both, much to my hubby’s dismay 🙂 Most recently I have set my sights on Lenormand and have purchased my first Lenormand deck which I am reeeeeally enjoying.
As for my home life well, I read Tarot professionally from home, I also have an Etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/AvalonsApothecary where I offer a ton of different readings. And I have my home based esoteric business where I sell goods such as Tarot, Books on Witchcraft, altar supplies etc. I also host workshops which focus mainly on divination, pathworking and engaging with aspects of the feminine divine.
Community wise, I co-run The Pagan Spiral with my beautiful friend Willow. The Pagan Spiral is based here in Cairns and is an active and dynamic community comprised of all manner of pagans. It has come a long way in 2 years, growing from around 40 not very active members to around 360 very active members.
As I write this, I feel I should mention that I am at present 36 week pregnant with my third child, my hubby and I are thrilled as I’m sure you can imagine. It is for this reason that I will soon be placing my shop on Holiday mode and spending a good dose of time focusing on my family. I will still attempt to blog and I will most certainly vlog because I’m very active on You Tube. Actually I’m pretty damn active everywhere, You Tube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pintrest etc, etc, ect.
So that is it in a bit of a nutshell OH! I should also mention I’m taking on a reading challenge at present. It will last the whole year I hope and I aim to review some of the books I’ve been reading on my You Tube Channel Avalon’s Spiritual Odyssey.
Well, that’s about all I can think to write at present.
Come, sit, read
