Hey all! I’m Nika.
I’m a Russian-Canadian located in Montreal. I came to Montreal as an 8-year-old kid from Moscow. Since the time I learned to read, I asked my parents to buy me books about divination, astrology, planets, magic, etc. I have always been drawn to mysterious things and I have always believed in the existence of magic.
These experiences got magnified when I read the novel “The mists of Avalon” by Marion Zimmer Bradley at 14 years old. I couldn’t deny that the religious practices described in this novel felt incredibly familiar to me. After digging the literature, I found current pagan practices that follow similar paths.
I was on a quest to find Avalon. I went to Glastonbury in 2012. I visited the Tor and Arthur’s grave. I went to Tintagel to find the place where King Arthur was supposedly born. And then, I released this quest to continue to grow spiritually in this present life. I presently follow the paths of paganism and hinduism.
I am also very drawn to yoga and am a certified yoga teacher. I believe in karma and obviously past-lives.
At 14 years old, I started to learn numerology according to Kris Hadar’s method which consists in using Kabbala and Tarot. This system is based on 22 numbers like the 22 major arcana. And, as you can probably guess my life path number is 9, which corresponds to the hermit’s card in tarot.
As for my experiences with tarot, they started at 12 years old with Tarot of Marseille that I didn’t understand quite well at that time. It is only at 18 years old, that I started to learn Tarot de Marseille more deeply and mostly the major arcana by taking a class with my teacher Cecile. I now switched to the Rider-Waite-Smith system as I prefer the different type of art available.
I am currently using my experiences to be of guidance to the people I meet on my way. May you find light in the darkness.

“And so, perhaps, the truth winds somewhere between the road to Glastonbury, Isle of the Priests, and the road to Avalon, lost forever in the mists of the Summer Sea.”
