The Weekly Witch Review #113 : Shaman School, Mystical Symbolism, Wearing Medusa, The Light In The Dark & 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... 



Water + Benediction : Our bodies feel water and surrender to it in a way that is almost archetypal: that feeling of stepping into a body of water gets us all on a cellular level, as though the amoeba that are at our ancestral root are still somewhere in there wiggling with joy at returning to state of one-ness with everything...

J.R.R. Tolkien loved trees.

Behold The Medusa Maillot! Cuzz when you’re getting a little tired of unwanted attention, what’s more empowering than a beauty icon whose foxy snake-haired visage turns onlookers into stone?


Folksy Musical Magick + The image of the cosmos spinning behind this almost angelic-looking crone feels so epic & timeless to me…

Ancient Egyptian Fossil Hunters.

Bob Dylan Creates An Enormous Metal Portal : No doubt this story is super cool & speaks to the power of reinvention & following your passion throughout the entirety of your life, both in which I am immensely interested, but the primary reason I'm sharing it here with you is this quote about gates. Makes me think of the various gates of initiation & awareness we pass through in magick…

"Gates appeal to me because of the negative space they allow. They can be closed, but at the same time they allow the seasons and breezes to enter and flow. They can shut you out or shut you in. And in some ways, there is no difference." 

Mystical Symbolism : Take me to Paris stat!...  

In 1892 Joséphin Péladan (1859–1918), a Rosicrucian, self-proclaimed high priest of the occult, author, and critic, organized the first Salon de la Rose+Croix. This annual exhibition in Paris showcased mystical Symbolist art, particularly a hermetic, numinous vein of Symbolism that was favored by Péladan and dominant during the 1890s, a time when religious and occult practices often intertwined... 

The Occult’s Exclusion From Spirituality : Speaking of religious & occult practices intertwining- that has traditionally been frowned upon. More often than not, whenever someone on the path veered towards the occult even slightly, stringent steps were immediately taken to see that such things don’t happen.

  Ha! Ha! Ha! For as much as I love KonMari, this article seems custom made for me…

There are many things one may take issue with in Marie Kondo’s mega-best-selling The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, but for us diehard Book Nerds, one particular piece of advice she gives is unthinkable: Throw away your books.

That time when one Wolf Sister went to Shaman School… 


Interesting- I just sent out a newsletter a couple of weeks ago called The You Who You Refuse To Be… And now this - The Three Yous, which adds such a fascinating layer to the first idea.

Why women of the early 1900s resonated with the iconic image of The Beautiful Witch.

This Mysterious Maya Codex has been verified as the oldest known text of ancient America.

As a proponent of loving up the shadow & finding the light within our darkness, how can I NOT think of that while reading this?… Meet the Physicist Searching for Dark Matter’s Hidden Light. 

And now- because I am no longer doing POP WiTCH posts & the Spring 2017 collections are coming down the runway even as I type, I must get all girlie glam on you here for just a sec…

These are some of the looks that I’m loving so far, and remember...

If magick is indeed creating change in conformity with your will- changing your clothes can be one hella-powerful way to do that…

  • JOSiE NATORi : Picture this awesomely loud, grandma-print suit topped with a big black hat & witchy boots. Then picture me in it... 
  • MiCHAEL COSTELLO : Oh the drama! Quick! Someone get me a red carpet... 
  • SACHiN + BABi : Gorgeous cut & fabric with a pretty little hint of ballet.
  • RED VALENTiNO : The pale dotted lace worked into this arts & crafts construction just slays me. It slaaays me, I says. 
  • NORMA KAMALi : One can never have too much leopard print. Evah! No nevah… 
  • MARiSSA WEBB : I could see myself living in some version of this next spring. Love the juxtaposition of soft-hard, girlie-punk.
