    The Witchcast - Meet the Elementals of Deep Earth, the Goddess Rising Up, and Haunted Ale-Houses

    The Witchcast - Meet the Elementals of Deep Earth, the Goddess Rising Up, and Haunted Ale-Houses

    They’ve been made fun of, laughed at, scorned and ignored - but the elementals of the great beneath shape the minerals, infuse our food with earthy, wholesome energy, tend and care for the wounded animals, and help we humans find our way to more healthy and prosperous lives. That is, if we stop treated them less seriously than they deserve.

    Who is Lucy exploring in this episode of the Witchcast? It is none other than the much-maligned Gnomes, the wise Kings and Queens, the Elders of the deep earth, whose healing powers and ancient knowledge is needed now as we move into times of transition for Mother Earth. Lucy then shares news of historic and haunted pubs, where you can drink spirits along with, ahem, the spirits, and gets excited about the British Museum’s wondrous new exhibition celebrating the Famine Divine, in Her myriad manifestations throughout time and culture.

    Lucy also unpacks curious listener's magickal questions, offers insightful advice, and ventures into the ways in which pop culture events are embracing the mythic and the occult. Featuring Pagan songs by artists as diverse as Wendy Rule, Suzanne Vega along with Eric Burdon and War, this is a beguiling episode that takes a very fresh look at beings both fabled and fabulous.

    Welcome to the sonic sacred circle, Witches! Blessed Be!

    The Witchcast - A Southern Hemisphere Celebration of Imbolc

    As the Wheel turns, the maiden awakens, bone mother begins to lose her hold, and the land approaches her rebirth. Light up your candles, let down your hair, and dance in the green, Witches! In the southern hemisphere the sweet, fresh, newborn energy of Bride is arising, and as she slowly rises from her winter slumber, the land begins to shimmer and stir with new life. If you’re interested in the myths, history and legends of this time, join Lucy for spells, rituals, traditions connected to this sacred point on the Wheel of the Year. Lucy offers practical magickal tips on making the most of the energy, connecting with the Goddess in her Maiden form, the origins of the word Virgin and how it relates to this season, and the inevitable presence of the divine feminine through the rebirth of Spring. So many blessings, so many candles lit for your Imbolc, beautiful souls!

    The Witchcast - Astronomer, Philosopher, Witch? Discover Hypatia of Alexandria, Kate Bush’s Angelic Magick and Insightful Listener Readings

    The Witchcast - Astronomer, Philosopher, Witch? Discover Hypatia of Alexandria, Kate Bush’s Angelic Magick and Insightful Listener Readings

    Blessings and welcome to you all, beautiful souls. In this episode of the Witchcast, Lucy watches (through tears) Agora, a film about Hypatia of Alexandria, a legendary Pagan (or was she?) scholar and teacher accused of Witchcraft, murdered by Christians in ancient Alexandria. Called by some the first Pagan martyr, the Witchcast explores Hypatia's brilliance, her neo-Platonic philosophy, her discoveries, and the catastrophic rift between pagans - or polytheists - and Christians in the late Roman Empire. Lucy analyses the film’s depiction of this remarkable woman, searching for truths about the Alexandrian age, the dreadful loss of the knowledge within that city's famed Library, and how one bad bishop can change the course of western history. Then, well. You can see there is a huge rediscovery of Kate Bush taking place at the moment. Babushka tik-toks, Withering Heights dance days and the revival of Running Up That Hill - or a Deal with God, thanks to Stranger Things. But did you know that one of Kate Bush’s songs is Magick in practice? Lucy shares a unique song from Kate Bush that is actually a true invocation of four Archangels that you can play to protect and shield yourself. Kate had an enduring relationship with a spiritual healer, whose crone-like wisdom and voice appears throughout her album, the Red Shoes. We move then to Lucy offering readings for listeners, with some very tricky questions answered by the cards, PLUS a reading for YOU. All this, and gorgeous pagan music - this is a powerful episode.Thankyou to Shayne, to Georgia, and to all the supportive and generous Patreon Family for their ongoing support, which is immensely appreciated.

    The Witchcast - Wardruna - An Interview with Einar Selvik

    The Witchcast - Wardruna - An Interview with Einar Selvik

    One man stands perfectly still upon the stage, filling the theatre with a sense of the profound, the past, the deeply sacred. There is no banter, no breaking the ambiance of ceremonial space alongside brother and sisters band members, all still and sombre as ancient stones. From them, something pure - the songs of the world - pours out. He creates music with the atmosphere, bones and birch groves and rivers. He plays traditional instruments that are the same our ancestors called up the Gods with. He sings of a deeper, wilder, truer part of ourselves, of runes and sacred places, of forests and resting places and the older Gods. His music made the TV show Vikings come to authentic life and his cameo in that show is iconic. After twenty years of playing, Einar Selvik's compositions, along with his band, Wardruna, have finally and justly found world-wide acclaim, which he seems not terribly interested in, because his purpose is creating something raw, old and true, so we can remember who we are. Yes, (a very nervous!) Lucy and Einar Selvik talk of animism, the ritual aspect of a live Wardruna performances, the beauty of longing, black metal, white ravens, white stags and the honesty of presence. Featuring three tracks from First Flight of the White Raven, this is a beautiful, wise, honest sharing from an amazing composer about our humanity, memory, our connection to Nature, creating what is needed, and being true as a performer. Wardruna have just released a new album that was all recorded live, and are touring Europe and The United States. Do everything you can to experience them, starting with this conversation, beautiful Witches.

    Thankyou so much to Shayne Brian and Chris Maric for working so hard to set up this interview over and again - we did it!

    Thanks to Shayne as always for his beautiful production work, to Georgia for the lovely imagery, to the incredible Patreon community who keep the Witchcast flying on her broomstick! So much love to you all!My love and gratitude always to Blue Angel Publishing, Primal Healing and Kohli Tea for their sponsorship of the Witchcast. Love and honour to all of you.

We Love You Lucy!!!

Her voice is like maple syrup in the springtime, sweet, deep, smooth, dark and light. With effervescent giggles mixed in! This is a great podcast for newly awakened witches as I promise most of your questions will get answered. And it will turn you on to the best pagan music! It’s also great for seasoned witches as she dives down deep like the mermaid she is revealing wisdom and treasures that will enhance your craft. She keeps you updated on witchy current events and news. Her unique perspective is fresh and current delving into subjects such as racial inequality and LGBTQ+ perspectives. This podcast is carefully crafted and comes from the heart. Her voice is authentic, rebellious, grounded and graceful. She invites you to be curious, ask questions, and come back to the simplicity of the life around you. This podcast is made up of curated segments, not just one long conversation. It’s like tuning into an old fashioned radio show! She keeps me company in the kitchen while I cook and do chores with my 2yr. old Son who loves to dance to the music! We both frolic delightfully spellbound and transported into the loving circle and pure Magick and Joy that is the Witchcast! We love you Lucy!! -Cassandra & Ranger Cleveland, OH USA
