Jessica Ripley opened Owl in the Oak Tarot in March of 2017 and she serves the local Rochester community, as well as the greater community of Minnesota and beyond with her skills. Jessica is a witch skilled in the art of divination. She is a psychic empath with strong clairsentient (clear feeling) and clairaudient (clear hearing) abilities. She sees spirits, works with ancestors and faery folk as well as animal spirits and spirit guides. She also works with the spirits of plants and stones in magical work- making charms, amulets, and other items with magical purpose to enhance life and well-being. Her preferred method of psychic readings with clients is with tarot and oracle cards, though she is also skilled with scrying and pendulum work and fortune telling with Lenormand cards. The name “Owl in the Oak Tarot” represents the necessary balance of being deeply rooted (Oak) in order to receive and share messages from the Divine and the spirits (Owl). Owl is one of Jessica’s animal totems, and Oak is representative of her Celtic heritage and affinity with the faeries.
In addition to psychic reading services, Jessica also gives spiritual guidance and helps clients on their spiritual path regardless of what their particular path may be. Spiritual guidance sessions are tailored to you, the client, based on your needs. Some examples of spiritual guidance work with Jessica include shadow work for spiritual healing, dream analysis, teaching other empaths how to thrive without constantly having to “shield,” teaching clients how to ground themselves, and so on. She is also an officiant, able to perform weddings and memorials, and she cleanses houses and other spaces of unwanted energies.
