Jessica M Starr is a witch and her magic is stories (she’s great at spelling). She lives in the shade of an oak tree, on the edge of a village in South Wales, UK, with her musician husband and their two unschooled children.

Jessica has been a student of astrology for almost three decades and has been living MoonWise - in harmony with the lunar seasons and cycles - for twenty years.

The ebb and flow of the moon inform her spiritual practice and everyday magical life, from simple self care activities - like finding a good time for getting a haircut - to her journaling and creative work (she is an artist, writer and poet).

Being rooted in place is extremely important to Jessica. She lives less than five miles from the place she was born, in South Wales. She brings this grounded calming energy and awareness of our human connection with the natural world into her work.

Jessica writes poems and prose for those who know that magic is real and that stories hold the power to change the world.

Her work has been published in magazines, journals and anthologies in the UK and further afield. Waking Mama Luna was her first solo publication. You can find more about her writing here.

She also has a Youtube channel where she shares practical witchy wisdom for crafting a creative, magical life.
