Hello everyone, and what a lovely day it is indeed. This Saturday, August 12th marks the 2 year anniversary of this podcast, and I am out of my mind with excitement and gratitude and plans for the future, and let me just tell you, I am losing my mind about it. After more than one hundred episodes, more than 400k plays on Spotify alone, I am like, vibrating with excitement.
Can you believe it? This is the end of January already. That happened really fast. We are going to talk about cord and knot magick today, which is actually an ancient method for performing magick, and I also wanted to talk about Imbolc. But first, lemme read an email:
Welcome to October, darlings! This is the season of the crone, this is horror movie, sweater weather, apple picking, pumpkin spice, scented candle, new book season. This is Netflix binging, Practical Magic, fun-size Snickers, Hocus Pocus 2, build a fire, ancestor altar season. God, I love this shit.
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.

Welcome to the podcast! Today is Thursday, September 30. The moon is waning crescent and we will see the New Moon on October 6, so there’s plenty of time to get those new moon manifestations in order. I am beyond excited for October. It is Libra season, which is my season, we have Halloween coming up, followed immediately by Samhain on November 1. We will be putting all the Halloween decorations up this weekend, and we will also be putting together our ancestor altar. That’s something we like to keep up for the whole month leading up to Samhain and for the few days afterward.
