Episode 86: Crystal Magick With Kathleen Borealis

Witches love crystals, but do they really possess Magickal energy? How do they influence Magick? Geologist and Witch Kathleen Borealis gives us scientific AND spiritual insight into crystals. Digressions include geologic forces in Magick, natural disasters, the potential immediate death of the universe and why it’s a bad idea to bring those things up at a Christmas party. Hilary talks oregano, Courtney shares what she’s afraid of (other than tornadoes), Kanani reviews ‘Shadow and Bone.’ A listener wants to work with their Ancestral Magick, but Christianity took over so much of their Ancestral homeland! Is there anything that can be done? On Patreon, Kathleen shares how to ethically source crystals.
