HAPPY MOON DAY, 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 Dark Side Of Self Improvement...

Unconscious self-aggression can take the shape of the inner critic, the anxious mind, or the perfectionist. It can also express itself as self-hatred or self-loathing... Essentially, it’s exerting a form of psychic violence towards yourself. 

Top 10 Herbal Self Care Tips.

★ Bri Luna of The Hoodwitch on Modern Sorcery : “The resurgence in witchcraft is not just about trend, but a kind of awakening on the heels of people being tired of dogmatic religion. People are more focused on freedom and feeling like they have the choice to heal themselves. You don’t need anyone else do to that.”

★ WAY COOL : Researchers have found tens of thousands of ancient Mayan structures in Guatemala, revealing a vast, interconnected network of ancient cities, which was home to millions more people than previously thought. The results suggest that Central America supported an advanced civilization that was, at its peak some 1,200 years ago, more comparable to sophisticated cultures such as ancient Greece or China than to the scattered and sparsely populated city states that ground-based research had long suggested.

Etymology is hella fascinating.

★ I just know y'all are gonna love this. 11 pages of Tweets that confirm kids have got the magick. Isn't that what we, as adults, are trying to recapture for ourselves with all this witchy stuff? The headline calls these Tweets "creepy", but the majority of them are actually quite sweet. I especially enjoyed the ones that seem to support the theory of reincarnation.

★ Sativa & Scones : The White Rabbit High Tea (emphasis on high), an Alice in Wonderland-inspired party...
