From the artist, Nicole of Leila + Olive:
From the soil to the stars, the Ad Orbita Tarot explores ancient orbits of inner and outer space. Through 78 cards — Major and Minor Arcana — Ad Orbita journeys past the present's night sky, into the sprawling, boundless realm of imagination. Finding growth in gravity both near and afar, we move through cycles that foster or foil the fears that swing along the path of our creative fate.
The Ad Orbita Tarot holds:
Wands seek balance within a star, in which the fire and light of two suns become one.
Cups look to the gravity of ocean waves that pull and rouse our own internal movement.
Swords follow the orbit of celestial bodies, bringing the path of distant galaxies closer to home.
Pentacles stem from the seasonal and botanical movement at our fingertips, the nearest connection to all things eternal.
Join us, people of Earth, where flowers root and grow forever, filling the void and the well with a wish, blooming brightly into all of the unknown space we may inhabit.

Stopped in for the first time today. Soooo much to look at. Beautiful store, nice and open. Probably some of the best covid protocols ive seen to date. The employees were amazing, heck even the customers were super nice haha. I bought a book along with a poop ton of other stuff.... and when I got home and opened my book, there was a sticker and bookmark place inside as a gift! Customer service like this always makes me notice the bit extra mile some people go. Will be bringing my neice for her birthday present soon! Thanks guys!
From the greeting, to the letting me lqp the store 10 times to make sure I saw as much as I could. I never felt rushed. Their covid protocols are next level amazing. The staff was beyond friendly and the customer service was top notch! I even got a beautiful book mark and stick slipped into the book I purchased. 10/10 would recommend. Currently trying to find a way to sneak down again today hahaha
Incredibly friendly customer service and the sweetest note on my curbside order!
Every time I come in, I end up leaving with more than I planned... I rarely even want to leave the store at all, because of how comfortable it is, both spiritually and physically
I have been using this Journal to keep track of my intentions during every Moon phase. I write meditative thoughts and it helps me track the Moon phases and signs so we'll. It has been a godsend during the pandemic in helping me keep my mind and spirit organized and in-tune with the Moon.
Aboslutely amazing staff, put so much care into packaging for online deliveries for non locals. The products are always quality and has provided history and guided tools. My fave store for witchy things. Very impressed in person service and online. Thank you so much Rite of Ritual for existing and putting your hearts and souls into your work.
Awesome experience! Cannot say enough wonderful things. I ordered from online, so I can't speak to the storefront (though it looks fantastic). I mistakenly chose an incorrect item, and hoped to have it swapped before shipping. So, I opted to text the number indicated on my order confirmation email. I was greeted by an exceptionally pleasant woman named Keisha, through text. She was more than happy to make the adjustment, and handled it like a breeze while still managing to be crazy personable through text :) So, a shout out to her specifically! shipping was quick as a bunny, packaged wonderfully, and all was exactly as expected!! Will definitely be a new regular :)
So amazing, both people were awesome working today. I have never been in a store so friendly. they both made me laugh and gave me freedom to choose while following covid restrictions of course. respect and love for this place
This shop is bar none the ULTIMATE in everything you could ever want in a shop supplying ALL your magickal and metaphysical needs. Have a appetite for magick? Look no further! They will not disappoint! The staff is extremely friendly and helpful exceeding my already high expectations. Cedric and Gabby are amazing! Knowledgeable and accommodating in whatever you're looking for. Beautiful, ambient, and positive environment! Not your typical run of the mill shop. I was overwhelmed with the array of tools, books, exquisite jewelry and gemstone treasures. Rare and hard to find items. So whether you love Magick, tarot cards, gemstone jewelry or hard to find magickal books and tools/items or just love a fascinating, beautiful shop to browse filled with wonders to browse that's NOT your typical generic and mundane " oh, another one of those stores " Rite of Ritual is THE place to visit! Calgary just got better! Step out of the ordinary and check them out. One of a kind and unique! The best I've seen yet. Unforgettable experience indeed. So what are you waiting for?! Go and visit already! Lol. Awesome place through and through!
I've had such wonderful experiences with Rite of Ritual! Not only is their selection extensive, but their staff are wonderful, and clearly invested in the customer experience. They always take the time to personalize my experience and ship such carefully packaged parcels. I so appreciate their expertise and their effort, and it's no surprise that the only reviews here that appear as less than five stars are given by people who prioritize their own wants and comfort over the safety of the staff in the midst of a global pandemic. I'm so heartened to see how management is safe-guarding their staff, and finding ways to keep their business thriving without compromising the well-being of those who work on the frontlines in the store. Well done. I'm so impressed, and wish more businesses were navigating these challenging times with such care and thoughtfulness. Stay safe and well! I'll be placing another order in no time, I'm sure!
Since the pandemic started I've ordered from Rite of Ritual a few times. This year I had a special request and they were so willing to accommodate at their busiest time of year. The staff are wonderful and willing to go above and beyond. They offer a great selection of ritual supplies for whatever your denomination. Please support this business in this year and the next year.
I love the atmosphere of this little witchy shop. The shop itself is very beautiful. There are many unique items from tarot cards, journals, books, crystals, candles ect. I also shopped with them during quarantine and the service was wonderful. Went to the shop when they reopened and I would definitely recommend going there as the service is A+++. The clerks are really helpful in helping you with your needs and are very attentive.
Of course Rite of Ritual blew me away yet again! Going into Calgary of course during these times made me a bit uneasy but all my concerns were blown out of the park when I went into Rite of Ritual. VERY diligent with sanitize/mask protocols and making sure everyone is as safe as they can possibly be. A huge thank you to the shop and staff for making us feel safe and feel a bit normal again. Definitely will be back!
I recently submitted an online order with this lovely shop and received it today. I'm living in Nova Scotia, but previously lived in Calgary. I don't have enough good things to say about this shop and the people who work there. It is so beautiful and the items are so lovingly procured. Everyone is so kind and helpful - two things we certainly cannot have enough of it this world! I recommend this shop to anyone, from the novice to the experienced. Always a fantastic experience. Sending love and positive vibes :)
Absolutely amazing souls here!!! My order shipped promptly and quickly. They messaged me right away cause I chose local but I am not local, sent money over quickly for the shipping and everything went smoothly! I'm so happy they emailed me and let me know about everything instead of just cancelling. Will be ordering a lot more from them. Thank you so so much! 🖤
The name Rite of Ritual is a slight play on words, meant to cover the important aspects of why this was created. It came to me many years ago as “this” was born in my thoughts, and is a true reflection of my deep intentions for its existence, and purpose. Rite of Ritual exists to provide you with the tools, permission, and in my case, sometimes needed reminders of the power we all hold within us.
