All things New Age — tarot cards, oracle decks, crystals, smudge sticks, birth-charts, witchcraft tools, and the like — are becoming more and more popular, especially in and around Philadelphia. (I mean, c’mon with this Philly-inspired tarot deck made by local illustrator James Boyle, with an accompanying guidebook written by former Be Well editor Gina Tomaine, to boot!)

While these practices have been around for centuries (so, pursue respectfully and ethically — cultural appropriation is a bad look), recent resurgence has been attributed to people wanting some semblance of control during turbulent times, manifesting positive energy, or looking to do some self-discovery. All of that — feeling empowered, more connected, and less anxious — is wellness, IMO.

Whether you’re just getting started with a ritual practice or are already well-versed in the metaphysical world, here’s where to shop locally.

Arrowroot Farmacy & Cafe

825 West Lancaster Avenue, Bryn Mawr

Arrowroot mostly stocks vitamins, supplements, bulk herbs, and other all-natural health/beauty/home products, but you’ll also be able to find palo santo, as well as white and black smudge sticks. While there, make sure to check out the herbal remedy bar for blends, syrups, and elixirs made by Arrowroot’s community herbalist, plus the cafe for plant-based, gluten-free fare.

Garland of Letters

527 South Street, Queen Village

Head to this Queen Village shop that opened in 1972 for all things metaphysical. Peruse the vast selection of books on topics like numerology, astrology, and spells, and stock up on incense, tarot and oracle decks, and crystals, too.

Harry’s World

1210 South Street, Bella Vista

Harry’s World on South Street touts itself as a new-age spiritual shop — and we couldn’t agree more. Here, find everything from tarot decks and herbal incense to crystals, smudge sticks, and spell books. Harry’s World also offers virtual spiritual readings and consultations that can be booked here.

Herbiary

1136 Arch Street (inside Reading Terminal Market), Market East

The concept of Herbiary — which has a large stall in the northeast corner of Reading Terminal Market, plus a storefront in Asheville, North Carolina — was born from founder Maia Toll’s interactions with an in-home “herb closet” full of natural remedies when she was living in Ireland. You’ll find herbs, teas, essential oils, crystals, and candles, plus metaphysical books written by Toll herself.

Mandy’s Magick Witch Shop and Healing Center

29 East Bridge Street, Morrisville

Sure, the retail section of Mandy’s Magick is chock full of all your witchy and metaphysical desires, but a big allure is the menu of healing services.
