EVERY WiTCH WAY : An Interview with Erick Silvermoon on Healing From Bullying, Men & The Goddess + Tribal Magic Oracle Cards...

There was a time when those who were curious about magick had to scout out the nearest metaphysical shop for answers, which could- depending on where you live- require traveling quite the distance, or perusing a typo-rife paper catalog of mysterious sounding titles and ordering by way of snail mail, a hope & a prayer.

Those days are over.

The internet has not only made finding those answers a heck of a lot easier, it's also made it a fully customizable, personal experience.

There is a book, an e-course, a coach, a Youtube personality for everyone!

Some might begrudge this new era of easy access, but I lean into it with relish.

I LOVE the contrast.

You can get dark & dangerous one day and then all fluffy bunny the next.

You can study ancient hermetic systems, dive deep into this or that magickal tradition, research the history of the occult, or simply learn to raise your vibration by focusing on what makes you happy.

In exploring the variety, you get to home in on what resonates with you.

And- if what resonates with you is a healer who radiates joy but is not afraid to go deep with the shadow work, someone who has been through the emotional ringer and bounced back stronger than ever, a thought-leader who is happy to change his mind, share what he learns as he goes, and laugh... A LOT, than Erick Silvermoon just may be the witch for you...



Erick offers a kickass FREE GiFT for connecting with your Spiritual Tribe, a variety of intuitive readings, and his gorgeous Tribal Magic Oracle Cards here...


"Journeys are journeys for a reason. When you think you are done, it is only the beginning of a new one. It is one of the beautiful things about this human experience!" -Erick Silvermoon

The Weekly Witch Review #68 : Animism, Hocus Pocus, In Defense Of Trees, A DiY Specimen Box & More!

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... 



Rescuing Wildlife is futile... and necessary.

Weird things start to happen when you stare into someone's eyes for 10 minutes.

HOCUS POCUS : A witchy editorial in black & white...


Annie Strole, the author of Homemade Beauty, shares a kickass recipe for one of her favorite natural beauty treatments & some thoughts on the business of beauty.

In Defense Of Trees : I live in Los Angeles & I see this happening! The drought has killed off so many wonderful trees- even ours- which we do water modestly- have not borne the fruit they usually do & seem a little worse for wear...

Watering trees in a drought is a long-term investment. 
It is even reasonable to plant a new tree, 
as you would light a candle in the darkness.

Howl.

The history of our planet is filled with incredible mysteries. Even though archaeologists and scientists are working hard to figure everything out, we know very little about our past... 10 Unexplained Discoveries On Earth.

Welcome to Dismaland, a theme park unsuitable for children & Banksy's biggest show to date.

DiY Specimen Box : Such a sweet lil' project..


Ghost Hunting vs Paranormal Investigation... This is absolutely perfect for the occult theme we've playing around with all week on Facebook!

Allowing On A Late Summer Day : LOVE this so much...

"We often see high Summer and the dead of Winter as opposite wings on the wheel of the year but the truth is that they have more in common than we might imagine. 

Like the Yin and Yang, anything that is opposite also holds the other within it. 

The essence of Winter, and its demand for rest, recuperation and the regathering of vision, is flecked like mica throughout the high summer months. In Winter, we rest because there is nothing to plant but dreams. 

In high Summer, there is a similar pause. At the hottest peak of the day, there is often nothing to do but take our well-mixed creations out of the oven. Let them cool on the windowsill and give ourselves a moment of quiet regeneration and soulful reprieve."

I posted some pics on Facebook of the current issue of Witches & Pagans magazine some time ago, but I just want to add that- months later- I am still loving it! This particular issue, with it's theme of The Magickal Home is so my witchy flavor.

There's an awesome piece on Feng Shui For Pagans by Tess Whitehurst and a whole slew of fascinating reads on everything from protecting your home with Voudou to discovering the esoteric apothecary hidden in your kitchen cupboards.

My personal fave is a piece on animism & Shinto by Alicia Cole. Highly recommend picking up a copy!

And- speaking of animism, this is pretty cool... Shamanic Evocation & The Power Of Animism.

That Summer Feeling... Tattoos, Hippie Beads & One Kickass Bikini.
