Welcome to the personal web site of Starweaver, Wiccan priest, tarot and astrology practitioner, and dabbler in the visual arts. This site is an expression of my own personality: sometimes focused, sometimes fanciful, always fluid. I hope you find this a place of beauty, wisdom, and warmth.

This marks the one-year anniversary of Starweaver's Gems from Earth and Sky. I decided to celebrate by giving the site a facelift. I hope you like the new colors and layout. Besides the new look, I'm allowing myself a little more flexibility about when the regular features appear and how the artwork is integrated into the site.

Enjoy the cool autumn air this season, as the year winds down toward rest.

Blessings, Tom
