If you are interested in how your mind works in connection with seasonal changes, this program is for you.

If you are interested in having fun, getting support, and meeting cool people, THIS PROGRAM IS FOR YOU!

This program takes you through a complete year of looking at yourself and your life and pulls out all sorts of interesting revelations about yourself.

Her tips, tricks, and writing prompts will bring about strong, positive changes in your life. Her crafts and potions are easy, fun, and affordable. They are the perfect way to manifest on the outside all of the wonderful new things going on in the inside.

Joanna Devoe is very well-read, well-researched, and well put-together. The information she gives to you from her own studies and experiences are well worth the money.

I consider this program to be extremely high value for the cost! I loved this program so much, I purchased modules for other people too. Buy it. Just do it. Don't even second guess yourself. Do it. Do it."  -Tara Hendrickson

"Participating in the Psycho-Spiritual Wheel of the Year has been a rewarding, uplifting, thought-provoking, and life altering experience for me. 

Each module contains a ton of excellent information and suggestions, And I am loving the crafty project and recipe that are part of each module.

This program has already changed my life for the better and I just started! 

Whether you're Witchy, pagan, or just looking for a different perspective, this is the place! 

Worth so much more than the dollar amount. 

I have found a community full of like minded people, but even more importantly, they are all awesome and positive and we lift each other up! 

I love it and am so grateful that I ran across Joanna one day randomly looking through blogs. The universe really knows just what you need. 

Thanks Joanna! You rock! -Cathie Shinsel

The Weekly Witch Review #79 : Running Away With The Circus, Serpentfire Tarot, Bad Kitchen Witches & 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... 

Coming Out Of The Spiritual Closet.

Are you a Wonderworker? Would you like to be? Then listen up, Buttercup!

HiPPiE WiTCHY AWESOMENESS : Moon to Moon recently linked to this post featuring Leslie Crow's home & style, and I fell madly in LOVE with every single scrap of it...

My friend Samantha is a badass. She wrote this article & I'm damn proud to know her... 7 Ways You Are A Bad Witch In The Kitchen.

If you want to get my attention, say "Terrence McKenna" or "Big Sur". Put 'em together in the same sentence & I'm all ears & eyeballs! Loving this excerpt from Zig Zag Zen on psychedelics & Buddhism. 

In case it wasn't obvious to you- most Americans are Christian & witchy folk are in a teensy minority. It's funny though- when you do what I do, it seems like everyone's a minority!  

Running Away With The Circus : On the road with the Ringling Brothers at the end of an era.

No one does whimsy quite like Vanessa Valencia, and her new line of giftware is absolutely magickal! Love the cosmetic bags & journals especially.

Serpentfire : An awesome interview about an awesome tarot deck...

A new Hieronymous Bosch drawing was found in a private art collection and it is every bit as dark & freaky as you might expect.

If anyone should ever refer to you as a bird brain, consider it a HUGE compliment!

The Magick Of Cinnamon.

These 5 NASA Astronauts came together to tell the world that we are not alone.

My Self-Worth Is NOT In Your Hands.

BOOK NERD : Kickass Quotes from Story - Substance, Structure, Style and The Principles Of Screenwriting by Robert McKee

There are many ways to write a screenplay, craft a novel or even author your own life...

Using the principles presented in Story by Robert McKee has helped me do all of the above in a manner I find endlessly engaging.

For me, it's all about the way structure sets you free and how character under pressure is revealing.

There are people who say that they write by the seat of their pants and that this book is too focused on plot, whereas they are more interested in character development.

Whenever someone says that to me, I silently question whether or not they've actually read the book or tried any of the techniques it outlines.

This book will show you how careful plotting sets up tension in a way that forces characters to make choices that expose what it is they truly value and who they are beneath the surface.

They're not just hanging out, moving from whim to whim, and trying to drum up emotion where there is none. They're acting and reacting and struggling to keep up with the demands of true cause and effect, which is what a life that is fully lived will do for you, as well.

I will give you fair warning here now in saying that my enthusiasm for this book does not denote it's end-all-be-all status as The One True Way...

It's just the way for me, and I think that, if you're a creative person who uses writing or story-telling in any facet of your life, biz or magick, it's worth playing around with to see how it works for you...

"Mastery of craft frees the subconscious." -Robert McKee

"When an idea wraps itself around an emotional charge, it becomes all the more powerful, all the more profound, all the more memorable." -Robert McKee

"Your intellectual life prepares you for emotional experiences... The two realms influence each other, but first one, then the other. In fact, in life, moments that blaze with a fusion of idea and emotion are so rare, when they happen you think you're having a religious experience." -Robert McKee

"The function of structure is to provide progressively building pressures that force characters into more and more difficult dilemmas where they must make more and more difficult risk-taking choices and actions, gradually revealing their true natures, even down to the unconscious self." -Robert McKee

"An unconscious desire is always more powerful and durable, with roots reaching to the protagonist's innermost self." -Robert McKee

"You must doubt appearances and seek the opposite of the obvious. Don't skim the surface, taking things at face value. Rather, peel back the skin of life to find the hidden, the unexpected, the seemingly inappropriate- in other words, the truth." -Robert McKee

"What seems is not what is. People are not what they appear to be. A hidden nature waits concealed behind a facade of traits. No matter what they say, no matter how they comport themselves, the only way we ever come to know characters in depth is through their choices under pressure." -Robert McKee

"Pressure is essential. Choices made when nothing is at risk mean little." -Robert McKee

"...the measure of the value of any human desire is in direct proportion to the risk involved in it's pursuit. The higher the value, the higher the risk." -Robert McKee

"True character can only be expressed though choice in dilemma. How the person chooses to act under pressure is who he is- the greater the pressure, the truer and deeper the choice to character." -Robert McKee

"...decisions are far more difficult to make than actions are to take. We often put off doing something for as long as possible, then as we finally make the decision and step into the action, we're surprised by it's relative ease. We're left to wonder why we dreaded doing it until we realize that most of life's actions are within our reach, but decisions take willpower." -Robert McKee

"An emotion is a relatively short-term, energetic experience that peaks and burns and is over... The Law Of Diminishing Returns, true in life as well as in story, is this : The more often we experience something, the less effect it has. Emotional experience, in other words, cannot be repeated back-to-back with effect." -Robert McKee

"The only reliable source of emotional truth is yourself. If you stay outside your characters, you inevitably write emotional cliches. To create revealing human reactions, you must not only get inside your character, but get inside yourself." -Robert McKee

"The art of story is not about the middle ground, but about the pendulum of existence swinging to the limits, about life lived in it's most intense states." -Robert McKee

"Reality is relentlessly ironic, and this is why stories that end in irony tend to last the longest through time, travel the widest in the world, and draw the greatest love and respect from audiences." -Robert McKee
