Episode 65: Magickal Moments Of 2020 With Mat Auryn

A special thank to our episode sponsors! See below for listener specials! It’s our final episode of the year and our Patreon community picked Mat Auryn to return to talk with us about the most Magickal Moments of 2020! We talk about pandemic premonitions, community cooperation, and digging into Shadow work. We explore the idea of turning our Magick from coping to forward-facing, plus Magick around the election. Digressions include the movies that traumatized us in childhood and our most hilarious spell requests. A listener is dismantling their Ancestor altar. Is there a good way to let them know they’re not being forgotten? Forgive our less-than-optimal sound quality. We were recording from Zoom!

Episode 12: Psychic Powers in Witchcraft with Mat Auryn

Many Witches came to the Craft because of psychic experiences. Can anyone develop psychic ability, or is it something you must be born with? What does it all mean? What do you do when the psychic moments are too much? If you call yourself a psychic, do you have to be accurate ALL of the time? Guest Mat Auryn, author of the forthcoming Psychic Witch, helps answer some of these questions and more. Your favorite Witches also discuss their own psychic experiences. We even get a little political, discussing current leaders and society’s collective shadow and how both have influenced the rise in Witchcraft, today.

Plus, Courtney’s new book is available for pre-order! Also, a reminder to shop local, the worst thing you can say to an author (or singer), Courtney is psychically connected to Kanani’s birth control for whatever reason, and Hilary has better friends than everyone else.
