Lyra Black was born and raised in the Sonoran Desert in the American Southwest, where she fell in love with massive summer thunderstorms and 100-year-old saguaro cacti. She stumbled into magic and the occult at 18, then co-ran the witchcraft blog Recreational Witchcraft with her best friend and coven-mate for several years.
After finishing her degree in Political Science, Lyra moved to Berlin, Germany, where she works as a writer, editor, and her office’s Natal Chart Reader. Though she’s traded in her ceremonial robes for business attire, she has also still been known to give tarot readings by candlelight for the price of one bottle of red wine.
Lyra believes that magic should be accessible, modern, and something that each of us can tap into in dark times.
