I acknowledge and thank the unceded traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations to be able to work and honour this stolen land by my settler ancestors.
In 2014, Astral Eye was brought to life by Kara (she/her). What began as a collection of ritual artworks has blossomed into something she is truly proud of. Kara, an animist witch, Psychopomp, herbalism student, diviner, and creator, infuses her craft with a deep sense of purpose and meaning. Each ritual offering and artwork is a testament to her personal journey of self-discovery, ancestral healing, and the exploration of her own lineage.
Rooted in the traditions of traditional witchcraft, spirit work, and ancestral practices, Kara's creations are a gateway to a world of continuous learning and unlearning. Through her craft, she seeks to understand and appreciate diverse cultures and beliefs, while actively promoting inclusivity within the community. With over 20+ years of experience in witchcraft, Kara has not only found solace and empowerment but has also become acutely aware of the injustices that plague our society.
Working closely with the spirits of the dead and her ancestors, Kara has embraced her role as a Psychopomp. This sacred journey has been years in the making and has become an integral part of every reading and ritual she offers. With utmost mindfulness and respect, Kara crafts each provision by hand, ensuring that it honours you, your space, and the spirits that surround us. She pays homage to the spirits of the land, acknowledging their presence and expressing gratitude for their existence.
So, let us hail the spirits of the land we call home and express our gratitude for their presence.
