Stella Iris has been with The Sacred Well since the doors first opened in Oakland years ago. She adores the freedom of making her living in the world of magic. Combining her enthusiasm for mythology and spirituality, crystal studies, tarot and astrology, Iris looks forward to work everyday. Now, in the Portland shop, Iris is excited to meet her new neighbors in the Sellwood area and make magic happen everyday.
Iris has studied witchcraft and tarot for more that 20 years, first learning from her mother beginning at the age of 13. Since then, she's achieved High Priestess degrees in 3 traditions of witchcraft and has helped form and govern CAYA Pagan Congregation. She's taught courses on tarot spreads and the chakra system. Iris has also academically studied religious and secular philosophy, theatre, and feminist theory.
Magic is the act of changing reality, sometimes subtly, sometimes dramatically. One of the most important parts of magic is to remember that as one changes the outside world, the inner world must also change.
As a Tarot reader, Iris is intuitive and kind, offering insight into the present moment and help with decisions for the future. The tarot is a language for understanding the self, allowing us to speak directly to our subconscious mind. Iris loves in person readings, but has embraces technology and can do distance video or phone sessions as well.
In her off time, Iris continues to create magic and ritual both privately and publicly. She is actively fostering the Temple of Aphrodite community and the Hecate, Queen of Crossroads temple community at the Portland shop. Her personal devotions also include Artemis, and Lord Ganesh.
Iris also enjoys spending time with her son, especially at parks and playgrounds! Iris also loves live music and theatre and learning about the amazing food her new home has to offer. Feel free to reach out with suggestions for food trucks, restaurants, shows, and parks to try out!
