Kyjah is a talented and intuitive mystic. She can be found managing Ace of Cups and you may see her wearing many hats at the center from making tea to helping you book your appointments or recommending stones for enhancing your life. She is one of our Page of Cups apprentices and a recent graduate from our tarot program and is available for readings. Kyjah grew up in a mystical Jewitch family, traveling the world visiting sacred sites, attending workshops her mom was teaching, helping set up a museum of oddities, working the merchandise tables on tour with a vaudevillian freakshow, living with tarotologists, healers, musicians, circus folk and mystics. She did not have to find magic, it was infused in her life from the womb. She was home schooled and focused her studies on literature, botany, magic, psychology, acting, improvisation and magic. Plants and nutrition were taught to her as medicine and tarot a way of connecting to her the divine self. Today she is focusing on studying herbs, tarot and mystic arts. In her free time Kyjah can be found gardening, enjoying Austin and cooking with her wife Katie.
