About Us

The Black Toad

 Why the Black Toad? Alchemy pure and simple. In Alchemy the beginning stages of the Great Work, the Transmutation and purification process begins with the Darkness, the inner Journey towards understanding and revealing of ones truth. The beginning and the end. From the abyss comes life and all possibility. The personification of the Abyss or (hidden Subconsciousness) is the figure of a Black Toad. That which ends and begins all things....the place where all possibility of creation dwells.

Readings

We offer a variety of Readings. Argos throws the bones. Bone Casting or (Osteomancy) is the art of reading energy through Bones. This art is one of the oldest forms of Divination known and can connect to realms of spirit and knowledge of past lives and future events.

Amalia connects Psychic Energy through touch and can tap in to your energies to see what blocks your progression forward and can assist in clearing such things from your path.

We are who we are

 My wife and I endeavor to create magically enhanced Metaphysical Products to assist in the flow and progression of the senses and the old ways of creation. We do not adhere to any one focus but embrace the oldest knowledge. Focus and intention drive our creative spark forward into the realms of healing herbs and elixirs as well as crafting talismans and other magical implements. We have been a part of the old art from childhood. With over 3 decades of experience in Reading, Spirit Communication, Spell working and Cleansing. We host a variety of classes throughout the year on a variety of topics including "Crafting Witch Bottles", "Tarot and other forms of Divination", "Traditional Witchcraft", "Spellcasting" and more. We seek to create understanding of the Ancient ways and the application of real magick in order to physically affect your life and that of those around you. Our council is utilized daily to assist others in their momentum forward.

What do we have going on?

Bone Readings & Ancient Shamanism

Bone Readings are lead by Argos. They involve a one on one consultation to ensure your understanding of the events that are to take place. The work is done with the Bone Bag which the client holds in order to adapt energies with the Spirit of the Bones. Once the connection is made the bones are thrown forth by Argos onto the casting mat which lays out the fields of energies with which are the symbols of your path in this life as well as previous lives. The Spirit then presents itself through meditative communication allowing one to understand where they are what is going on what may yet be and past lives that affect this current life. The act of throwing Bones is a very grounding experience and can be concluded with a cleansing by request of the client.
