About Me

I’m Raphael, Welcome to my site Emerald Visions!

I am a visionary artist, psychic reader, astrologer, and freelance writer. I am also a witch, having been called to the work of the spirits. I love offering guidance, clarity, and inspiration through my spiritual services. The streams of spiritual practice I swim in are folk magic and traditional and ecstatic witchcraft as I am guided by my relationship with the spirit world, the gods, nature, and the ancestors. When not working I love to spend my time either communing with nature or studying and practicing mediumship, Jewish folk magic, tarot, the occult, art history, dreams, herbalism, and making plant medicine. Thanks for stopping by!
