Extra-Sode 1: Virtual Circle Casting

Extra-Sode 1: Virtual Circle Casting

Hi all! Our first Extra-Sode aka Bonus.

Corey and Detta talk you through the basics of circle casting. We include and supplement some of the tiles in Corey's post on our Instagram Page. If you want to follow along visually check out that post!

This is for anyone but our new Witches may find it especially helpful as we head into Samhain!

*Energy Raising is part of ritual. You may choose to do this before you cast or as part of your work after you cast.

Ep 6: The Magic of Light Language Featuring Natalie

Ep 6: The Magic of Light Language Featuring Natalie

Welcome Our beautiful guest Natalie!

Founder of Heart of Hathor

IG @heart.of.hathor

FB @heartofhathor27

Detta here: As I say in the podcast I believe the study of Witchcraft is a little like a liberal arts education – you study other subjects that may inform your practice, those studies may enhance your practice or you may decide it was interesting but nothing to do with your work. Light Language work has many similarities with witchcraft and embraces many of the same principals.

Spark:

Corey and Detta had the SAME SPARK!

Warrior Goddess Witchcraft

Ep 5: Raise the Roof, Witches! Raising Energy.

Ep 5: Raise the Roof, Witches! Raising Energy.

Today we share a brief moment in memory of RBG. The energy of grief and flowing.

Then we focus on raising energy for spell work, honoring, and celebration and grounding that energy to keep you safe.

Lastly, Ingredients and structures of spells, establishing relationships with deities – The foundation.

Ep 4: Autumnal Equinox (Mabon) is coming, Witches!

Ep 4: Autumnal Equinox (Mabon) is coming, Witches!

Happy Tuesday ( and New moon this September 17th)

Today we talk about The Autumnal Equinox Mabon. Which we pronounce in a very American way ( sorry)

We celebrate the Sabbat (sab-uht) in the Northern hemisphere on September 21st through 29th ( specifically September 22nd) this year. Corey gives a great history lesson and introduces many correspondences – herbs, crystals and colors. ( Boston public library and personal insight). Please do your research on Aiden Kelly and recognize that Mabon is a Neo- Pagan term. We don’t do a deep dive as this ep is about CELEBRATION!

We discuss the type of spell work and ritual that this season boost and do some heavy lifting in exploring intentions and our opinions on how best to work with this new season, give some ideas for doing the work with all the “stuff”.

Detta gives a structure outline for her ritual practice.

We are moving into the dark part of the year. There is amazing and powerful work to be done!

Next week we do a deep dive into energy raising and share some specific work that we do during our rituals. We will be sharing some exercises, spell structures, and some actual spell grammary with all the dressings (corresponding – herbs, crystals, celestial timings etc)  that we encourage you to make your own. We hope you join us!
