My grandmother was Mary. My mother was Mary, but I am Mary Andrea.

To consider all the most traditional names in the world, I’m pretty sure that “Mary” is at the top of the list. Everyone knows a Mary. So common. So trusted are Marys, with their abilities to blend in (even though the name “Mary” literally means rebellion) and so well known…

Superpower: A Dream Realized

From a small child, I was always fascinated by art. The colors….the shapes…the absolutely infinite world of creative possibilities; it was a glorious wonderland to me, and now as an adult — it still is.

So with that, an artist, I will always be.

After Just Finishing the Paintings from my 2nd Divination Deck: The Afro Goddess Oracle (2019)

For the record, I love a…

Tarot vs Oracle

Before we begin, allow me to briefly reexplain the difference between the Tarot and Oracle decks.

You must be prepared to think of it as a movie…

To obtain all that one needs,

requires both stealth and balance of value.
