We had the good fortune of connecting with Atalanta Moonfire and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Atalanta, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
My thought process as far as beginning my business was to bring a specialized way for people to communicate with their loved ones. Bone casting is a way to speak to and receive advice from our ancestors even after they have passed on. It is very personal form of divination. My goal is to make it as well-known as tarot or other popular forms of divination.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?

My biggest challenge was starting my business during the pandemic in 2020. Not only did I offer my newly released book, “Throwing the Bones, Divination for the Modern Practitioner”, but also deluxe bone kits as well as classes both online and by mail order. They were well received.

As there are only a very few instructional books on casting bones available around the world, my being one of them, it is on the forefront in history as bringing bone throwing into the mainstream as a form of this ancient form of divination. My second book is in the process of being written and should be out at the end of the year.

I am an eclectic witch, practicing divination for over 25 years, tarot being my main tool. For the last 13 years, casting bones tradition has been my primary form.

I am currently on tour traveling the United States, appearing at the Oddities and Curiosities Expos, book stores, metaphysical stores, and teaching workshops and classes. I will be doing a European tour at the end of the year beginning in December 2022.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?

Because I live so close to two major cities, I would say I would take her to Little Five Points and Underground Atlanta. I would then follow up with a visit to Macon to explore the quaint college town that is full of wonderful restaurants.

Metaphysical stores are also prominent in both cities and are always full of beautiful people and magical items!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Michele Jackson, author of “Bones, Shells, & Curios”, is someone who has shaped me into a better practitioner. Her personal advice has helped me greatly in my career. I give my shout out to Michele Jackson!
