The Weekly Witch Review #159 : Tips For New Witches, Animaste, When Saturn Tweets, Kissing Under The Mistletoe & More!

HAPPY MONDAY, 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... 

6 Tips For New Witches.

A Hymn For Optimism...

I believe that even in the absolute darkest times, there is light. And so did our ancestors. They believed it so fully, that they placed their festivals of light (Yule, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa) directly during the time of the year when the nights were the longest, and the days short and bleak. 

★ Animaste : Honoring The Animal Within...

Pam Grossman. You know that name, right? If you're at all witchy you should!

★ LOVE CRAFT : The Alchemy Of A Makeup Lab.

3 Myths About the KonMarie Method according to Marie Kondo herself.

★ First of all- the name of this blog I'm about to link to here is GRUMPY OLD WiTCHCRAFT. Do you love it? Or do you love it? Cuzz I totally love it. Secondly- here's that link : All Hallows Gathering- A Little Night Magic. It's super packed with wonderfully witchy pics & vids that'll make you feel like you've traveled back in time to a magickal place that probably never existed quite in this way but oh how great would it be if it would've? 

If Saturn could Tweet, here is what it would say... "Every action, wise or foolish, has consequences. Now do whatever you want."

★ She Has Risen : An Egyptian-European archaeological mission working in Luxor Governorate uncovered a collection of 27 fragmented statues of the lioness goddess Sekhmet...

I NEED this in needlepoint stat :

Monday’s Witch is tranquil & white.
Tuesday’s Witch wields fire & might.
Wednesday’s Witch is wacky but wise.
Thursday’s Witch keeps their eye on the prize.
Friday’s Witch mixes coconut & lime.
Saturday’s Witch can bend space & time.
But the Witch who works on Sunna’s day...
will always bring bright blessings their way.

★ Holiday Trivia : How Kissing Under Mistletoe Came to Be.

★ I felt quite honored to be interviewing Susun Weed via Skype here a few years back. There really is no one quite like her, and, as polarizing as she can be, I hope to venture cross country & into the Woodstock woods to meet her in person one day, preferably while attending one of her wildly weedy workshops. In the meantime, this intrepid reporter has beaten me to the punch. 

AS ABOVE SO BELOW : Kickass Witches lovingly tend to the microbiome like the magickal garden of life it is.

7 Nerdy Tarot Decks You Wish Actually Existed.

★ People feel so isolated at the loss of a pet. The bond with an animal is not given the same status or respect or intellectual validation that other relationships are. It’s what's known as a disenfranchised grief. Therefore... The ASPCA Pet Loss Hotline.

★ I'm gonna keep saying Twitter is awesome until everyone I know signs up.
