Hello, everyone! Welcome to the first episode of August. I hope everyone had a great Lughnasadh, I hope everyone’s New Moon in Leo intentions are percolating and manifesting and I know we are all going to see some great things heading our way. Leo season is so special to me for reasons I’ve reiterated a million times here. I am married to a Leo, both my daughters are Leos, this podcast is a Leo. Leo is such an auspicious, optimistic, can-do sign, and I just love the feeling of possibility that it always brings with it.
Good Thursday witches, and thank you for joining me today. We have a fun topic on tap for today, we’re going to talk about cauldrons. Which is such a stereotypical witch trope, I love it. But in addition to that, it’s also a really useful tool in the craft and we’re going to explore that.
Hello my friends, and welcome. I hope everyone is well. Today we are going to talk about Litha and the Summer Solstice, which isn’t for another week and a half, but I like to talk about it a little early so we can think about what kind of rituals or spells we might want to work, and have a little time to prepare for that. So Litha is the topic of the day. But very quickly, before we get to that, I want to read a message from a witch who is having a little issue that I think a lot of us have from time to time, if not all of us.
Hello witches, and thank you for joining me today, we have got a lot to talk about. First of all, Mercury is in retrograde as we speak. Part of the reason we are talking about shadow work at this time is because it’s kind of a recurring retrograde theme, for the past to rear its head and remind us that our traumas aren’t quite as healed as we like to pretend they are, this is a time when it’s easy to fall back into destructive habits, or answer those late night texts from that toxic ex. Incidentally, next week’s episode will be on meditation, for similar reasons.
Hello, and welcome to the last episode of March, and the last day of March as well. We are taking a week off from Birth Charts and we are going to talk about good old Dream Magic. Dreams are one of the more interesting aspects of the human experience. And science still has no idea why we do it. Why do our brains slip into an altered state of consciousness while we are at rest? What is the evolutionary benefit of having these wild hallucinations every night? They have theories, and some of them seem very solid, but the fact of the matter is that we don’t really know. Science can’t definitively tell us why we dream, or even what dreams actually are. But we don’t need science to explain that dreams, that the dream state, is very powerful.
