Vibrant tapestries and the sweet musky aroma of incense welcomes visitors entering Blue Raven on Cedar Street. The new metaphysical book and gift store offers tarot readings, Reiki services and astrology classes. Blue Raven was opened by Neil Spearbrecker and Angela Ransom in July.

“I’ve had an on- again off-again relationship with metaphysics since I was in middle school in the ‘70s.

As of late, my wife, Angela, and I decided we needed to do something that brought more light to our lives, something positive,” Spearbreaker said. In addition to offering a wide variety of semi-precious stones, figurines, candles and CDs, Blue Raven also provides customers with one-onone opportunities to have their fortune read through tealeaves, crystal balls or tarot cards.

Prices for all of these services start at $40 per half hour and $75 per hour. Upcoming January events include mini-readings, which feature psychics performing 10-minute readings for $10.
