TGiF Witches...

Welcome to the latest edition of "The Weekly Witch Review", a kickass guide to all things new & exciting (or at least new & exciting to me) on the wonderfully wacky world wide web... 



★ A Witch Bows To No One : Sovereignty, Power & The Faery Tradition.

Psychedelic Psychiatry.

★ GORGEOUS!!! Daniel Vazquez's Siren” series is lush with symbolism...


★ Does time exist in it's own right, or is it just in our minds?

★ If you're at all witchy & have a thing for book stores (can you be witchy & NOT have a thing for book stores?)... chances are you've at least flipped through one of Judika Illes temptingly magickal encyclopedias. 

Is your reaction appropriate? According to who? We need the activists. We need the fluffy bunnies. We need the comedians. We need the devil’s advocates. Everyone has their part to play in this crazy production.

How To Die : Practical Pathways and Perks to Let Death Guide Your Life.

★ If you have a twisted sense of humor, it's probably because you're a cool, chill genius... The link between IQ and affinity for black humor is likely do to with the fact that comprehending a dark joke is a complex information-processing task.

★ Hippie Witchy Chi-Chi Fru-Fru  La Dee Dah : Love the way the stark white walls & floors offset the bohemian mish mash of patterns & textures...

One of the more interesting finds on that ship is the Antikythera Mechanism. Archaeologists believe this mechanism was used as a guide to the galaxy and is presumably the first mechanical computer.

Nature's Template For Moving Through The Seasons Of Your Life...

The Wheel Of The Year means different things to different people. For me...

It's not about the weather, and it's not about ancient festivals.

It's about the way outer space is reflected in your inner space & vice versa.

In that sense, walking The Wheel can be a unifying experience for us all, regardless of religion, weather or geography.

As Above So Below. As Within So Without...

The cycles of the sun echo the cycles of our very own lives, and the cross quarter days (the midpoints between the solstices & equinoxes) offer profound lessons in coping with and even thriving during life's most challenging transitions...

Neanderthals Were People Too : This is such a fascinating, mind-expanding read. I especially enjoyed learning about the caves they called home…

Gorham’s Cave is on Gibraltar’s rough-hewed eastern coast: a tremendous opening at the bottom of the sheer face of the Rock, shadowy and hallowed-seeming, like a cathedral. Its mouth is 200 feet across at the base and 120 feet tall. It tapers asymmetrically like a crumpled wizard’s hat.
