About Us

Living Magick Publishing was created in 2009 by Jadzia and Jay DeForest for producing their products and books.

The first three titles were the Living Magick Learning Cards for Astrology, Runes and Tarot, which are self-study flash card decks to make it easier to learn and remember the myriad details that go with each of these systems.

Along with the Learning Card sets for each topic, they created the Living Magick Quick Reference Sheets for Astrology, Runes, Tarot, and Tarot Reversals. These are laminated, 2-sided sheets with quick reminder cues, designed to fit easily into a notebook or journal.

After the original titles were very well received, several more Learning Card sets have been added including Crystals & Stones, Lenormand, Palmistry, and Kaballah’s Tree of Life. There have also been several additional Quick Reference Sheets added to include Numerology, Celtic Oghams, and I Ching.

Books by the DeForests are also included in the Living Magick inventory offering information on a variety of topics. In addition to their printed products, the DeForests are also the co-owners of the copyrights of the Mythic Images Collection of mythological art and statuary, which can be found at The Guiding Tree.

Jadzia DeForest is a professional Tarot reader, instructor and writer. She is co-producer of the Northwest Tarot Symposium, an annual four day conference for card readers  in Portland, Oregon. In addition to her instructional published works, Jadzia is also a fiction writer under her author name of JJ Krzemien.
