First, here is a brief story on La Maga… a few years ago, while in the throes of college I took a class on South American literature. I read the canon, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Juan Rulfo, Quiroga, Casares, Borges, among many other greats. Following my romantic heart down the rabbit hole I stumbled upon Julio Cortázar, a 20th century Argentinean writer. I picked up Rayuela, or Hopscoth (the English translation). I cracked open the book’s pages and dived right in. A world of jazz, art, cigarettes, alcohol, love and loss, yerba mate, words, winding paths, and magic, opened before my eyes. I devoured Cortázar’s words like longed-for wine. I listened to his wordplay, his deconstruction of the narrator’s voice, his poetry enveloped me. Throughout the narrator’s vacillations, La Maga is his longing, his present and absent love. She is the shadow that lurks behind every letter, the echo that is heard in all the dark and quiet streets. I have disentangled La Maga from Rayuela and brought her here to the present, I made her corporeal. This is La Maga’s shop, where words and poetry float endlessly around and where stories are exchanged. I invite you to enter, to explore, and to engage.

I used to offer this service of tarot readings through Etsy, but found that running a shop is too much upkeep, necessitating time for social media promotion and full on social media engagement. I do not have the time to commit myself to actively creating a diversity of listings, with diverse spreads, while also promoting my work. All this is partly because I do not use spreads with positional meanings, so shoehorning my reading style to different spreads and themes in order to better promote my shop is just not part of my approach.
