Client & Student Reviews

This amazing new age shop is owned and operated by 2 fierce and fabulous woman, Sam West and Sara Calvarese. These ladies have years of experience and wisdom in Tarot, Astrology, and all things deliciously witchy! There is truly something for everyone at this amazing shop. I have been numerous times and I love their unique candles that combine the most delightful scents (I bought 4 already) and they make my home smell AMAZING. I also attended a Tarot Cards for Beginners class and I learned so much. I was really impressed by the depth of knowledge that Sam and Sara both possess. They are the yin and yang to each other and both bring so much to the table to provide their customers a really wonderful and all-encompassing experience. They are very professional, kind, and wicked smart! These young entrepreneurs are such a welcome addition to the Mount Holly community and I cannot wait to attend many more classes and events at there fabulous new shop. They also have a blog and podcast that ya’ll should check out.

These folks are awesomesauce. I took a workshop there last week and it was thoughtful, organized, brimming with good content, and very well taught. I found them insightful, ethical, mindful, and a heap of fun. Their customer service was top-notch, and they went above and beyond to ensure I had a fantastic experience. They’re hipper than their surroundings, but quite neighborly and welcoming. Their teachings are trauma-informed and feminist without being the slightest bit victimy. They kept it real in a way that allowed me to fully relax and learn. The shop itself is gorgeous, and they have awesome stuff stocked! I’m totally enjoying the treats I picked out for myself. I can’t wait to go back, even though it’s a bit of a schlep from Philly (pssst... 2nd location in Philly! )

I finally had a chance to get a natal chart reading with Sara and WOW!! She blew me away with her accuracy! She told me things about myself that I have always felt deep down but had been ignoring or avoiding, and hearing this stuff come to light was a total “Aha” moment! I sincerely feel like I have a better understanding of myself since our meeting. I catch myself doing the things she said I would and now I know WHY I’m doing them and have a new perspective on my actions. I highly recommend making an appointment with her to anyone seeking more clarity and direction in their life, she is spot on and will even provide a recording and detailed outline of your chart for you to take home!

I went in to a reading not knowing what to expect or how to approach it but Sara was amazing at walking me through my chart and answering all my questions. Thorough and completely thoughtful. She’s absolutely amazing at what she does!

Taking an Astrology Course with Sara was an amazing experience. She provided your specific chart and tons of learning materials including a glossary of the zodiac signs, planets, and houses, and their meanings, tips on how to read a natal chart, and worksheets.

The course was very hands on. She utilized worksheet activities to help us breakdown the most important details of our natal charts. She took the time to stop and explain a lot of details. She gave us examples relating some things that could have very easily felt alienating and overwhelming to everyday easy to understand concepts. If you didn’t understand something, she would find alternative ways to explain it so you could understand it.

One of the best parts about the class, for me, was her overall intention for creating and administering it in the first place: astrology as another tool to help us understand ourselves. Astrology as a form of self-care and loving ourselves. The more we understand about ourselves, our family lives, and how we approach the world, the more compassion we can show for ourselves and others; the better we can reflect on situations and find similarities, or explanations, for particular behaviors in others. It is a very useful tool to have, especially in the social climate we live in today.

I learned so much! I was unsure of what to expect at first, but I was so happy with how it turned out, and I met some really awesome people who I plan on keeping in touch with (including Sara!). I was being called to learn more about astrology and then a post for this class popped up on my FB feed. With that being said, I didn’t know too much at all about astrology and I knew nothing about natal charts. I can honestly say, I now feel like I have a solid understanding of both. I not only learned a lot about my own natal chart, but now have the tools to interpret anyone’s chart!

I have to say that I was a little nervous at first because I wasn’t sure of what would come up for me. I can honestly say that there is nothing to be afraid of because the knowledge you will gain is all a part of who you already are. You can simply use this knowledge to gain a better understanding of yourself. This higher awareness will be beneficial in many ways and you will be able to apply this knowledge to your life.

Sara was extremely knowledgeable and provided detailed information specific to each person and their chart. Before this, she provided information on the layout of the chart so that the details within it would make more sense. She broke down each section and built up from there. She was able to answer any question we had and was even willingly to stay late after the last class because we were all eager to learn more. I would recommend this class to anyone interested in astrology or interested in learning more about themselves. We had so much fun and I’m looking forward to another class or reading with Sara soon!
