    Episode 91: Make it Yours || Personal Correspondences for the Eclectic Witch

    As an eclectic witch, I find that most "common" correspondences don't necessarily fit the way I practice witchcraft and the things I believe. If you're an eclectic witch, many of your correspondences can be personalized and made to fit your practice.

    Episode 90: Witchcraft in Pop Culture || Favorites and Thoughts

    Episode 90: Witchcraft in Pop Culture || Favorites and Thoughts

    Witches are often portrayed in pop culture as evil, demonic, or ugly. I asked on Instagram who your favorite (and least favorite) pop culture witches were and the results were...expected. Let's find out what you said as well as my thoughts on how witches are portrayed in the media.

    Episode 89: Elements in Witchcraft || Common Correspondences and My Thoughts

    Episode 89: Elements in Witchcraft || Common Correspondences and My Thoughts

    Elements in witchcraft are fairly common amongst research material for new and not-so-new witches. Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Spirit are the five "traditional" elements in witchcraft and they have common correspondences. So, what are they? And what are my thoughts?

    Seasons of Wicca by Ambrosia Hawthorn* https://amzn.to/36bN81N
    Seasons of Wicca Book Review https://youtu.be/akSb0O52h00

    Elements in witchcraft are different depending on the region, culture, tradition, and person practicing magick. One person may use elements in witchcraft in a completely different way than someone else, and that's okay. I don't use elements in witchcraft very often, but my associations with the elements are fairly similar to the common associations that are available on the web.

    Episode 88: How to Be a Witch || Getting Started in Witchcraft and Paganism

    This is a question that comes up a lot for new seekers -- how to be a witch! We often tell new seekers to read, read, and read some more, but there is more to it than that.

    I shared a tweet of mine in my Facebook group that sparked an idea for a topic and here we are. Besides reading, there are a lot of different things you can do to get started in witchcraft or paganism. How to be a witch isn't just how well you can memorize information, how many books you can read in a week, or even how many tools you can obtain. The most important part of the process is actually doing the work!

    Episode 87: Samhain 2020 || Information and Practices as an Irish Pagan

    Episode 87: Samhain 2020 || Information and Practices as an Irish Pagan

    Samhain is a time of new beginnings in my path as an Irish pagan for many reasons. Working in darkness can be daunting for some people, but darkness is a necessary part of growth.

    Wiccan Samhain: https://www.roundthecauldron.com/2019/10/27/samhain/
    Culture Vannin, Hop-Tu-Naa: https://www.culturevannin.im/manxfolklore/hop-tu-naa-468995/
    20 Fun Facts about Hop Tu Naa on the Isle of Man: https://www.visitisleofman.com/blog/read/2020/10/20-fun-facts-about-hop-tu-naa-on-the-isle-of-man-b113 

    Samhain is the third and final harvest festival in the neo-pagan wheel of the year. Its celebrations are deeply rooted in Irish lore and tradition and many people still celebrate Samhain traditions today. As an Irish pagan, Samhain is all about welcoming the darkness, remembering where I come from, and planting seeds for new growth. The most important parts of growth happen in darkness, and as we approach the darker half of the year, I'm reminded at Samhain of the things I need to hold on to and, more importantly, the things I need to be free from.

    Episode 86: Protection Magick - Basics, Tips, and Tricks

    Episode 86: Protection Magick - Basics, Tips, and Tricks

    Welcome back! This week, I want to discuss protection magick and go over some tips, tricks, and basics to help you get started with your protection magick.  

    Want to help decide what we talk about? Join me on Patreon!  

    It is my belief that as a witch, protection magick should be some of the first types of magick you master - or at least get comfortable with - before moving on to anything else. Protection magick includes charms, shields, wards, and so much more. Do you have a favorite method of protection?
