The Weekly Witch Review #131 : The Heart Of Pluto, Archaeoacoustics, My Laura Marling Obsession & 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... 

Book Nerds & The Characters They Magickally Bring To Life.

6 Rituals Of A Fit Witch... A fit witch has no guru and knows no gimmicks. Her body is her highest teacher.

Wolfpeople : A lovely photo journal & personal share about love...

★ Here's something new and, depending on where you stand, potentially confrontational- (in a good way I hope!)... A sexually liberated woman & her sexually liberated mother speaking about sexual liberation... I actually interviewed Ev'Yan a few years ago & have been alternately delighted, shocked & curious (sometimes all at once) as she's continued to share her sexual evolution with such unflinching courage online.

★ Danielle Laporte on faith & light.

Archaeoacoustics : The mysterious sounds of ancient places.

Christians Were Strangers : How an obscure oriental cult in a corner of Roman Palestine grew to become the dominant religion of the Western world.

Laura Marling Part 1 : I Banish You With Love… What a spooky-sexy, weirdly mesmerizing video & absolutely perfect song. There’s always been something a bit witchy about Laura Marling. I first felt in love with her style back in 2012, when she released My Manic & I, which I am just as enthusiastic about now, 5 years on, as I was when it first debuted.

Laura Marling Part 2 : I could just die with delight over her new podcast, Reversal Of The Muse, and I must must must insist that you listen to the episode she did with Dolly Parton & Emmylou Harris… if you can stand that much star power & epic fem-epicness in one dose.

Laura Marling Part 3 : "Laura Marling’s new album is peppered with romance. With scarcely a male pronoun, the album is a celebration of what it means to be a modern woman...." This interview sheds so much light on the inner-workings of this powerhouse creatrix…

14 questions to ask yourself (and your tarot cards) about love.

★ About 60 people on earth remember every detail from every day of their lives, which leads me to wonder- what in the heck is up with the rest of us? Why can't we remember our own lives?!

★ Creatures that thrive on iron, sulfur, and other chemicals have been found trapped inside giant crystals deep in a Mexican cave.

★ Cuhraaazy Fascinating : The Neuroscience Of Eminem's Mind.

★ How often do we see photos of African American women from the turn of the last century? Not often enough. These photos really call attention to the dignity & beauty of these women.

The Biggest Heart in the Solar System Has an Incredible Origin Story... “Researchers have hypothesized that, like Europa or Enceladus, Pluto’s heart might be sheltering an enormous subterranean ocean that’s contributing to its heaviness.” Mmm... Yes. Pluto is so plutonian!

BOOK NERD : Kickass Quotes From The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George...

This is a book for book nerds.

It's a book for those in the midst of a passionate, life-long romance with imagination.

It's a book for lovers, a book for friends.

It's also a book of healing.

If there is a place inside of you that perpetually mourns for a love lost, this book has the potential to move you through that place and out the other side.

It's so many things, an amusement, an adventure, an invitation to dream.

It's a warning to stop squandering the precious days of your life and a call to really live them.

This book asks that you cherish your loves, savor every sensory morsel you are given and treat each day as an opportunity to experience the full privilege of your being.

For these reasons and more, I say that it is absolutely magickal...

"Books keep stupidity at bay. And vain hopes. And vain men. They undress you with love, strength and knowledge. It's love from within." -Nina George

"She opened the book, held it to her nose and took a long sniff of the pages. Her face reappeared, glowing with contentment." -Nina George

"A book is both medic and medicine at once. It makes a diagnosis as well as offering therapy." -Nina George

"Did you know we're all children of the stars?... When the stars imploded billions of years ago, iron and silver, gold and carbon came raining down. And the iron from the stardust is in us today- in our mitochondria." -Nina George

"It was as if he had passed through a gate of fear and had realized to his surprise that behind it lay not a gaping chasm, but other doors, bright hallways and inviting rooms." -Nina George

"Everybody has an inner room where demons lurk. Only when we open it and face up to it are we free." -Nina George

"The sea was the first thing he found that was large enough to absorb his sorrow." -Nina George

"Death doesn't matter. We will always remain what we were to one another." -Nina George

"We are immortal in the dreams of our loved ones. And our dead live on after their deaths in our dreams. Dreams are the interface between the worlds, between time and space." -Nina George

"You can only really see with your tongue. And your nose and your stomach." -Nina George

"I'm a firm believer that you have to taste a country's soul to understand it and to grasp it's people. And by soul I mean what grows there, what its people see and smell and touch every day, what travels through them and shapes them from the inside out." -Nina George

"Tango is a truth drug. It lays bare your problems and your complexes, but also the strengths you hide from others so as not to vex them. It shows what a couple can be for each other, how they can listen to each other. People who only want to listen to themselves will hate tango." -Nina George

"Her sculptures were almost double human size. It was as though (she) could detect beings trapped in the stone, as though she could see though the unhewn blocks into their soul, hear their cries and feel their hearts beating. (She) would then begin to chisel them free." -Nina George

"He saw sand-colored houses scattered like dice on the green and red and yellow patchwork, as in an old painting. Long rows of vines, ripe and juicy, lined up like soldiers. Huge faded squares of lavender. Green, brown and saffron-colored fields, among them the swaying, waving green of trees." -Nina George

"God must be secretly sitting here, gazing out from this bright summit; only he and the dead were granted the enjoyment of this solemn, sweeping panorama." -Nina George

"He reached into the shelf with both hands, grabbed whole parcels of books out of it and piled them up beside him. The stacks grew into trees. Towers. Magic mountains." -Nina George

"All the love, all the dead, all the people we've known. They are the rivers that feed our sea of souls. If we refuse to remember them, that sea will dry up." -Nina George

"I am the daughter of a tall, strong tree. My timber forms a ship, but it is anchorless, flagless. I set sail for the shade and light; I drink the wind and forget all ports." -Nina George

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... 

The Elegant Curse.

A Guide To Intuitive Tarot Reading. 

Into The Mystic... Every time I visit Pony Gold it makes me want to bust out the ink & paper again...

Your Dog Is Judging You For Being A Jerk... He can tell when you’re behaving badly toward other humans, and he’ll react accordingly.

Giant flying reptiles!

★ What Mel Robbins is talking about in this interview is my kinda magick. Truly. In my experience, these clever lil' tricks we can play on ourselves to get our butts in gear can have the greatest impact. It's the most direct path toward creating change in conformity with your will… (THANKS for the link, Zo!)

Walking through fire : "Sometimes our thoughts and emotions can become trapped in the body. This is when we get sick or hurt. As we unravel emotion and thought patterns, we can get to the bottom of any physical malady we have."

How A Small Act Can Break The Spell Of Separation.

The Fascinating Life of Pamela Colman Smith... I always try to remember to add a hyphen & Smith to the end of Rider-Waite. It makes for quite the mouth-full, but, seeing as she is the artist who created one of tarot's most famous & beloved decks, she certainly deserves the nod...  

The Radiating Aura Technique.

Time is contagious... As we converse with and consider one another, we step in and out of one other’s experience, including the other’s perceptions of time.

How did the 20th century’s most glamorous intellectual friendship go wrong? What a riveting read! And so fitting, considering the times we’re in now with so many friendships breaking down over differing political opinions…

Vibey Highlights from inside this year's Tucson Gem Show.

An ancient tomb, scores of mysterious figurines & this lovely inscription...

"If the mountain peak's roots are firm, it can contend in height with Heaven and Earth; deep and brilliant, solid and bright, it speeds far away along with the Sun and Moon; civil and martial seek each other, and so men are naturally there…"
