About

Photo on 1-25-12 at 9.55 PM #2My name is Thorn Mooney and I’m a a witch transplanted to Charlotte, NC for the sake of graduate studies.  I enjoyed the exceedingly rare privilege of being raised in a secular household and began studying and practicing various forms of witchcraft as a young teenager. Now in my thirties, I findmyself a working Gardnerian priestess with a strong solitary practice that relies on techniques culled from as assortment of Western esoteric traditions and what is sometimes called “traditional” witchcraft.  I’m also heavily influenced by an extensive academic background, having specialized in American religions, evangelical Christianity, and contemporary Paganism at the MA level (thus far with no plans to pursue PhD work).  I moonlight as a lecturer and independent scholar, but professionally I now work as a tarot reader and guitar teacher.

I’m the high priestess of Foxfire Coven, which is a traditional Gardnerian inner and outer court operating in the University area of Charlotte.

Other interests include vintage guitars, long-distance hiking, traditional archery and bowhunting, and running.  And, of course, my perfect Humane Society of Charlotte rescue cat Oliver.

Find me at public Pagan events in and around Charlotte, at assorted summer festivals, and pretty much everywhere online except for Facebook.  I have a YouTube channel, a Tumblr, and an Instagram, all of which you can find in the menu on the right that’s titled “More Thorn.”  If you’re interested in tarot (and especially if you’re interested in tarot and are also a bit of an asshole), follow me at The Tarot Skeptic.
