    Scorpio's Espiritismo

    In the spirit of Marion Gibson's Witchcraft (our last episode, if you haven't heard it!), today our hosts talk about Scorpio's Espiritismo - what is it, what was it like to be raised in a spiritual practice and what Scorpio wants you to know about the Espiritismo that she grew up with. This episode isn't a How To Guide, but instead a journey through Scorpio's personal history, or at least as much as any scorpio is willing to share.

Most Binge Worthy Witchy Pod Available

I immensely enjoy the witty banter between these two ladies. Geared toward TODAYS adult witch. Entertaining and educational. Loaded with laughs None of the cringeworthy; Uhm.... uh’s.. awkward silences and non stop giggling. Which is so common and almost unbearable with a lot of the witchy pods available. THANK YOU ladies!

Major Disappointment

What a disappointment - I found an episode on “the White Goddess” summer reading/book review, with Scorpio and Gemini - the show hostesses. Scorpio was engaging and thoughtful - Gemini was selfish, under educated, and unnecessarily judgmental.

First of all she admits to not even finishing the book, and as one who actually read the book it’s pretty clear she barely scratched the surface.

She said things that are just not true and makes outlandish judgments about the books content and the author. She just goes on and on about how “offended” she is - and props to Scorpio for continuing to correct her attitude and ignorance with compassion and patience over and over and defend the book because she actually read it so she *can talk about it in a meaningful way.

Her attitude is basically since a white guy wrote it, it must be garbage. I’d be fine with it if she could explain *why* she thought that -but again she didn’t read the book and what little she did read she clearly didn’t even attempt to understand with an opened mind. Graves hypothesis is that monotheistic religions are the cause of the loss of ancient, potentially secretive coded poetry - but goes as far as saying Graves is anti-Semitic.

Thankfully Scorpio calls her out, because that’s absolutely not the correct context of the idea.

And honestly I’ve never written a bad review like this but THAT moment made my stomach turn in repulsion and made me feel the need to tell others not to listen to this trash. How irresponsible and tasteless.

Gemini’s other excuse is “it didn’t feel like summer reading”. Literally the very first page says the reader must be disciplined and focused to read the book. Rather than trash talk something you don’t want to bother to even try to understand…get an easier book. 🙄. Try Clifford the Big Red Dog next time.

I was so happy to find others who had taken the time to read this - and hoped to hear meaningful discussion. Sadly this was the exact opposite. Not only did the host *not read the book* but there was nothing meaningful about her conversation. It was bratty, white girl hate mongering.

***Thanks Scorpio for not wasting my time. I really valued her opinions and ideas about the book. She was authentic and interesting, and I was happy to hear what she had to say.

Shame on you Gemini for screaming at the top of your lungs and carrying a tiny twig.

Good Info, Toxic Delivery

I tried listening for a few months, but I was left so upset every time. I get that the edgy mean girl thing is hip right now, but I wish I could have the great information without the toxic ‘tude. So anti mental health and self care.
