The Weekly Witch Review #13 : Holistic Hippies, Practical Magic, Dung Beatles, Starberries & 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...

Tina Fey is a witch!!! Well- she's going to be... in a movie, at least... and that something.

"We all have the same freedom to find and focus on the meaningful parts of our own misfortunes. Every one of us encounters random events, but we also possess a universal ability to create meaning out of suffering. We can turn a curse into a blessing, tragedy into heroism, loss into gain"... Martha Beck on How To Turn Accidents Into Miracles.

A Druid's Approach To The Spiritual Power Of Plants.

"The ancient Druids used the variety of plants and trees available to them 
in a unique way, employing not only the physical benefits that the 
plants may provide, in the same way as many other herbal traditions, 
but also the spiritual attributes held within the plant." 

Days Of Heaven. (swoon) This is all so magickal...

Death, The Tower & Ten Of Swords... each of these tarot cards represents an ending of sorts. Barbara Moore explains how their energies differ.

Check out this super ambitious crowd funding campaign for the New Alexandrian Library Project, which aims to be "one of the cornerstones of a new magickal renaissance in the spirit of the original Great Library of Alexandria, the schools of Qabala in medieval Spain, and the flourishing magick of renaissance Italy." Dream big, witches, dream big!

Starberries!!! I didn't even know it was possible, but I just fell a little bit more in love with blueberries, which will forevermore be known as Starberries...

"Our Native indigenous cultures considered blueberries to be 
a gift from Great Spirit. Due to the blossom end of each blueberry 
forms a 5 pointed star. It was believed that these "Starberries" 
were a gift sent to gift relief to hungry children during the famine."

A pyrite meteorite fragment, an amulet, a bone spear tip with engraved decoration, a hearth, and a magic wand made of antler & decorated with a geometric motif was discovered in a Mesolithic Hut in Poland. We witches go waaaaay back... Just sayin'.

(video) Have you ever wanted your own Book Of Shadows just like the one featured in Practical Magic??? Well then- I'm here to tell ya- you, my witchy friend, are in luck!

The Rose Journals on how to make DiY tinctures using dried herbs...

The dung beetle may live it's life in crap, but it’s actually a far more remarkable creature than you may think... Why The Egyptians Worshiped Beatles That Ate Poop For A Living.

KiCKASS BiZ WiTCH ALERT : Sophia Amoruso of Nasty Gal fame is on a promotional rampage & I think that's awesome. A Girl Boss has got to do what a Girl Boss has got to do when she's got a new book to sell!

Aw... Sarah Anne Lawless shares her baby's first forest experience. How wonderful it must feel to be raised by a nature-loving witch!
